That beta didn't seem like the best showing for Ghost Recon 2019, but I'm still looking forward to it. It looks like my sort of big silly open-worlder.
Love Demon's Crest.

Demon's Crest is one of the best 16-bit metroidvanias. Very much an overlooked gem.

i didn't know they sell those giant mugs. .......and it's sold out, damn.
Dave killin it with the top 10 every week
God its Friday again already feels like extra long UPF was yesterday
Its weird that cup snakes are a new phenomenon in the us, beer snakes have been a thing in Australia and England for over a decade, sometimes they get over 100m long.
I fucking love Business Dave.
Ha Rorie, you sly devil. Your running through the woods answered the most important question of all. "How's the running around in it?"
business dave keeps me subscribed
Cool Ranch are the only good Doritos.
That ubisoft service actually has some decent games. Think I'll at least do the free month at some point and see how it goes.

The BD Double T has a deep bench of Top Moments, but getting Jeff to say "pwease" might be the Most Top.
If Breakpoint didn't have gearscore I'd be way more willing to give it a shot after seeing this beta, but I don't think they take that out. The idea that in this "survival" game, which seems really watered down anyway, you need to dump you weapons for ones with magically bigger numbers is silly to me. Half the fun was cosplaying special forces divisions but if you have to luck into the right weapon you can't really do that.
I like anno hi rorie!
You should check out the cup snakes at Cricket (not even joking, I saw one go from a lower tier up to the balcony above, it was incredibly impressive)
fifty minutes in I just noticed the big stacks of wood and ore that spawn next to the train and now I have to scream impotently at an archived video.
those At Home with Amy Sedaris audience members, hell yeah
Watching Rorie play open-world games is a distressing experience, but in a weirdly compelling way.
It died down for awhile but you just reignited my Guilty Gear hype, thanks a lot. Also didn't know Breakpoint was a walking sim! Good UPF fellas.
Biz Dave suggestion for next week's top ten: the music over this week's number 2 turns into the soundtrack from "Mandy" when it's played at slow speed like that.
The only thing better than the Biz Dave Top 10 is Brad's reaction to the Biz Dave Top 10.
Dave is awesome, but more importantly, the GOAT is back baby!
About 15 mins in, did Brad forget to brush his teeth?
24 minutes in, Jason figures out Microsoft's password reset system.

Never thought I'd hear Dave Sims (Mariners commentator) in my GB content. That was strange. He was fascinated by the cup snakes during that game. More interesting than the team I suppose.
Very Happy Jeff could experience the top10!
This is a great UPF. So much weird shit going on and energy

Berenstein Bears thing is LEGIT.
Great upf, loved watching rorie roll down / climb up a cliff. More websites should have immersive no vehicle demos.
Brad, when you finally jump into MiSTer bring us along on your build, pleeeease
I'm gonna have to check out Demon's Crest at some point, being the big Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts fan I am.

Wishing the best for Ben's bone dragon and Rorie's "protein bowl break" problems. Keep them in your thoughts, people. Stay strong!
Guys, Minnesota won by 3... Dave wasn't too far off...
Ghost Recon Fyre Festival?
FYI PSA because Jason brought it up, recent windows updates have totally fucked up how read/write permissions for windows-live accounts are the primary administrator- Almost identical issue happened to me for about a week until I dug through all the stupid and badly designed WIN10 diagnostic toggles and set my login as a 'Local Account (which is the same email used to authenticate windows, but apparently the sign-in-sign-up-for-microsoft-bullshit creates a second,. completely neutered, non-functional-admin-but-not-admin account which is HELL of confusing until you dedicate a saturday to it. So I feel you Jason, it's a thing.
Secondly I'm super glad-to-be-right in my gut feelings on CONTROL enough to pre-order,, because I lost out on literally nothing and stood to gain this year's stand out surprise/success for what I thought would JUST be kind of a tech demo (it is that, RTX looks fucking insane, and after you mess with resolution scaling, surprisingly actually holds a solid 40-50fps on a gtx1080? How is that possible?), but also that game is straight up BAD ASS. Especially with cheat trainer with toggleable speedhack so you can straight up mix max payne ...debris-time? Anomaly time? into it. Something I bet Jeff would LOVE to mess with. I can't make any progress because messing with physics in RTX in slow motion is...something man. Setting everything to .25 speed and hurling a chair through a reflective transparent glass pane, and watching it go from crazy reflective to crazy breakables in that slow motion time is hypnotic.
But...as far as a game you put the A TEAM theme on to to be the badass-kind-of-game-which I loved WIldlands for, unmitigated ridiculous cartoon military silliness in this very seriously presented realism context-...I'm not sure Breakpoint will allow enough of that. Gear score and CLASSES? I thought....no I KNEW, GHOST RECON was built FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T PLAY THE DIVISION BECAUSE BULLET SPONGE boring ass no-stakes, WHICH......what are you doing! Why would you put that in an intentionally realistic TTK game?? Unless they REALLY want to move into the survival aspects, I'm not even sure they now what the fuck they were trying to do. I obviously will play it and hope for the best but yeah right now everything I've heard has been disappointing at best. I'm sure I will dupe myself into enjoying the parts that held over from Wildlands, but for the stupid in me that made me pre-order based on how much I enjoyed the previous, Breakpoint already seems like the game isn't what I wanted more of out of that series.
That said, for everything Ghost Recon Brokenpoint bums me out about, holy shit is this year good for games that are above this ubisoft baloney.
