Great video and great way to show of something considering the restrictions.

This even got me somewhat interested in eventually giving this shit show a shot.

I'm still puzzled about this game ... But I can also understand Brad - I played recently a game that had almost no gameplay and no engaging story but I kept coming back and finished at least the main quest line. I still wonder why ...

By the way, the technical analysis was excellent ;-)

Jeff's BT ref just made me imagine a version of this game where the ghosts betray their presence through "simply being loved, loved, loved" wafting faintly through the air

@brad: The technical breakdown near the end is what I'm here for and what GB does best! Seeing the engine get strained to it's limits with those packages WHILE wearing a polygon RICH hat kept me on the edge of my seat. I expected a hard crash at any moment but the game pulled through. Thanks Brad, I can rest easy knowing the technical back end is as strong as Sam Porter Bridges' resolve to connect the United Cities of America, for Samantha America Strand.

I actually laughed out-loud

I am 100% behind why Jeff is super iffy with the BB stuff. Especially seeing a trailer with the BB container being shot up with bullet decals and characters discussing how short lived they are.

That's some real rough stuff, especially for a new parent.

I can't believe that this hasn't been skewered in the reviews for the awful Monster Energy Drink integration and direct advertising.

This game will be awful when it gets trolled hard, users will make this not great.

Those two NPC porters at the end wearing "high-performance underwear". I love this game. I actually find the gameplay loop a lot of fun and relaxing. It's not like MGS5 which had a good amount of objective variety (even that was limited) and I could marathon. I enjoy playing a bit every weekend. It reminds me of parts of RE2 Remake where you are staring at the map and routing which way to go and alternative paths should things go poorly. I like that sort of thing.
