Nice timing just got in! Had to stop watching earlier due to wolfenstein and then my internet went down. Just a suggestion you'd already established wolfenstein as it's own stream earlier in the week it was a bit annoying to come to this and it was wham straight into spoilers for a game that's just out! Don't mind the site covering it but just not as part of UPF....well that's preference at least.

Although much awesomeness took place here, Ben's sideburns stole the show. Ben just added several points to Charisma.

Every week I watch UPF and every week I get about ten minutes in and have to turn it off because, while I'm sure he is a truly great person, Matt Rorie is fucking insufferable.

"Guess I don't have to play this game now..." x3 because he had to repeat it because no one was acknowledging him.

"Psh you're telling me 100 Nazis couldn't hurt these girls but this old guy can?" Again repeated because seemingly everyone else realized that wasn't worth acknowledging.

"Brad is this game bad?" Alright I'm out I'm sorry I love dogs too and I'm sure he's great to get a beer with but jesus christ when the camera is on you don't have to act like the smartest person in the room nor do you have to say every single thought that comes to your brain.

It's hard to watch UPF sometimes but what can you do. The prevailing opinion is just "I know he talks too much and has no filter and can be obnoxious but I love him to death so leave him alone!!"

I find turning my speaker volume down by about 50-75% helps.

There's constructive criticism and then there's just acting like a dick. You're being the latter. This is why the GB staff regular comment how they ignore the comment sections and how they can be so shitty.

The Wolfenstein gameplay looks so aweful to be honest. rpg shooter at it's worst. shame for all the good wpn sounds and animations and character designs. That segment was 35min too long.

Also, if the cool shotgun two-taps everything, why change guns after 2 shots? Well maybe it doesnt work as well against armor. I don't know.

I just wonder why that game got featured 3 times at least on the site. (If for example out of contrast you would just play midgame state of doom 2016, everyone would have gone: "Hey, i need to play THIS again!") ^^

Edit: And why didn't the Nazis stream down the cave to attack BJ all the time btw? He just sits there in his little cave? wtf

Also, did Brad even notice the "God Hand" ability is the same for both girls? So your damage with that depends on the bullets you collect with the hand.

Dang, I'll have to finish Wolfenstein before watching this.

I like that even though the game isn't the best in the series, it's getting SO MUCH time on this website (not sarcasm, I kinda like when they feature an ok game).

Ok, look - this is the best UPF I've seen in a long time. Business Dave continues to be the GOAT (I legit look forward to those top 10's), and Jan Can Cook? A new staple. Well done to the GB West crew.

@nadavis1: dont take it so seriously man. UPF is a free for all summer festival where everyone is just out there meandering around enjoying the sun and sounds like a big ass public orgy without penetration. and it's where matt rorie lets his little sun dress flop up over his head while hes spinning around flashing everybody as he twirls. just let it happen and accept him for the insane bastard he is and you'll learn to love him.

also can't take credit for this but business dave on camera again in a suit - thats......stone cold e.t.? ani-mal-e? which is the good one?

Just in case that came off as sarcastic; I really do appreciate all of our Premium subscribers. Sorry if I'm not your cup of tea; not much I can do about it! Like I said w/r/t John Cusack, sometimes people just rub other people the wrong way. Sorry you feel that way!

This. Fuck spoilers, it's a Wolfenstein game. Nazis bad. If you really care you can always watch the episode after you've finished the game yourself.

Great UPF. The only thing that could have made this better would be some Age of Barbarian, but hey, lets not get greedy, right?

Also, GB has been killing it with Jeff out, and Rorie always makes me laugh.

Hey guys there isn't a lot of cool games out right now! The video game drought ends in just a few weeks and then it is game on ... in no particular order the most exciting ones imho are right around the corner!

  • August 27 Control
  • August 30 Astral Chain
  • September 10 Greedfall
  • September 13 Borderlands 3 (maybe, will wait for reviews since it looks pretty bland)
  • October 4 Ghost Recon Breakpoint
  • October 25 Call of Duty Modern Warfare
  • October 25 The Outer Worlds
  • November 22 Doom Eternal

Pretty sure nothing else comes out until Cyberpunk 2077 after Nov 22 though.

That cutscene from the beginning of the stream was pretty good though. The shooting in the new Wolfenstein games is serviceable but the story has always been the main draw for me with the last two games. It's a shame to hear that Youngblood doesn't have much of that story content that made me love the first two games.

If only the rest of Youngblood matched that plot twist cutscene in terms of story I would be much more inclined to play it.

Also not to say that the shooting is downright bad because it's not but I usually set it to one of the lowest difficulty settings and just have fun mowing down nazis like an unstoppable killing machine.
