Holy long podcast. Going to take quite a bit of time to get through this one.

No complaints though.

Please be Bayonetta 2.

You just know they are going to fawn over Mordor even though it has way more flaws on every level than Bayonetta 2. Mordor can't even reach up to the knees of Bayonetta, mechanics-wise.

Combine that with a boring world and general lack of challenge. The only way the game can even remotely challenge you is by just sending masses of enemies at you. AKA the laziest way to make something more difficult and then just making certain enemies be completely immune to some of your attacks.

None of these make Mordor a bad game of course, I have it on PC and it's great. It's just nowhere near as good as Bayonetta 2 on a mechanical level. And Shadow of Mordor does not have a lot else to offer.

@alex Bless you for defending the vastly superior Wolfenstein: New Order against 2014's Most Disappointing Game Destiny.

Even considering Wolfenstein to be a worse game or shooter than Destiny. Holy hell.

EDIT

Jesus Christ, nobody even made a case for Bayonetta at all. Barely even got mentioned.

Once this comes up, I'll be leaving the site to listen in peace and quiet. Only once I finish will I return to discuss it.

Its really two hours guys. Brad added two hours of "throw away the key" E3 song to mess with us. How funny would that be. I would cry from sadness and laugh at the same time.

4 hours!!! So much for keeping up day to day. Having tomorrow's NYE stuff to do, I may not finish this until my long drive Friday, and that's fine with me. I assume there is no regularly scheduled Bombcast too? I know last year or the year before they got together on Skype or something and recorded one.

Can anyone pinpoint where in the podcast they speak to Patrick's departure directly? I haven't yet made it through the deliberation podcasts so I'd like to save this one for the end, but I'm still interested in hearing where they talk about that.

Edit: Sorry, just saw in the forum post that it's ~4h6m in. Never mind!

Did people really hate Dark Souls 2 enough that it doesn't even get a mention on the 40 game Game Of The Year list?

Edit: Never mind, they remembered it.

Ha! I predicted he would leave GB in 2014; thought he was going to prove me wrong.

I'm sad Rebirth didn't get much of a look in, but I'm thankful to Patrick for trying.
