Doesn’t work for me on mobile. Every other video works for me rn.

Edit: oh it’s because it’s still the “live” video. Not really working when I rewind either. I’ll come back tomorrow!

I've been waiting for Abby's reaction to the Oven Zombie the entire game and ...nothing. I don't know if I'm more amazed or disappointed.

@nameredacted: It’s incredible that they have all those people sitting in the studio, but this has to be pointed out in the comments.

I wish they hadn't been so quick to tell her "Use the rocket launcher, skip this boss fight" and tell her exactly when to do it and everything. Like, literally as soon as she got to it.

This game just never ends. I'm remembering how annoying each subsequent combat encounter was.

Take a shot every time Abby says "I'm fine" or "It's fine" when she/things are not fine.

@kaplar: 9 out of 10 times when people say that they are fine, or that things are fine, they really mean 'no, I'm actually not okay but I also don't feel like talking about it so I'm just saying that things are fine so we can move on.'

@castiel: It's partially that she's not good at the game, thinks she is, and doesn't want to hear any criticism. Not just that she doesn't want to talk about it. Unless her thinking/acting like she's good at it has just been a bit that didn't land with me.

Well, she was quite distracted by being in the middle of an off topic conversation. Hard to get jump scared by something you are barely paying attention to. I appreciated Vinny trying to keep some focus on the game last week, but then people complained about that :\

I'll be looking forward to Abby playing Deadspace in a more private format. RE4 is basically now just background visuals to their unrelated movie and TV show discussions. It does get pretty repetitive though, so I guess that's to be expected.

i don't remember that at all on account of well and truly having stopped playing already at this point in the game. rooting for abby to finish for personal reasons of wanting to finally see the end of the game (while not actually wanting to see the end of the game badly enough to warrant searching youtube and watching a video).

Yup, can't wait for them to get past it . It's getting a bit stale.

Loving this play through. At this point, the game doesn't feel like the same one they were playing when it was in the village.

This is the most I've ever seen of RE4 and if they don't finish it here I'll never see the full game. It seems pretty long though.

@exet:ThIS GiRL ThaT iNVAdeD mY MaN sITe iS nOt a rEaL gaMEr!>??!?!>!?! Go watch a damn speed run you elitist. Nearly every person on the crew has a feature where they struggle, yet you feel the need to attack her? The point of this site is not to feature people playing games perfectly. It's to have fun watching cool people play games. You should have never subscribed!

I'm gonna... i think i'm gonna play through RE4 again. Every week this feature tempts me.

Edit: kick is only headshots or when you shoot them in the shins and they fall to their knees (which is a SUPLEX and it is ultra rad if you can pull it off; it's probably the only thing Dan would like more than kicking a door). No other stun has a melee prompt associated with it.

Relying on my (not amazing) memory, I'd say they still have two, maybe three episodes left. Too bad this whole island bit was the worst part in the whole game for me.
