Unprofessional Fridays: 08/31/2018

Things get a bit scummy, shifty, hollow, flat, and dead in the office before a three-day weekend.

The end of the week is here! You made it! Let's sit back, relax, and close the week out in style with some video games.

Aug. 31 2018

Cast: Brad, Matt

Haven't watched the video but that screenshot looks like a game based on Jeff &; Brad's cop skit for a previous GOTY. I'd love to play that :)

I just do not understand the appeal of games like SCUM. It looks so boring.

I'm going to take a guess before I start watching this.

3.5 hours of Rorie is a tall order, one I AM READY TO CONSUME.

Rorie needs to learn its okay to keep quiet for a few moments. Constantly bringing up random off-topic things from chat isn't a conversation and it just kills any momentum that these shows have going for them. I'm finding myself actively avoiding any content with Rorie in it because he is just infuriatingly annoying :(

@snakeeater321: Agreed. I like Rorie, I really do, but you are spot on about him killing the momentum. Conversations never get a chance to really get going before he's off on another tangent.

@masterswanny: Maybe you should try avoiding comment sections for a while, if this kind of behaviour is what it brings out in you. I mean, were you trying to be funny? Smart, sarcastic? That kind of mockery is just sad.

Regarding the poster issue and shipping: have you guys thought about selling the posters digitally (as print data) so that people can have them printed themselves via one of the billions of printing services out there?

Within the first 5 minutes. Rorie tells a story, everyone listens. Alaska tells a story Rorie speaks over him. Will tells a story, Rorie speaks over him.............3.5hrs of this, I hope not.

@andrewf87462: There were times when Brad and Will were trying to talk about what they're doing in the game and Rorie just starts talking over them there too.

That's a long UPF, nice, and good crew as well! Get out Rorie haters! Two Point Hospital is pretty damn good, glad to see it here on the stream, and Divinity OS2 is finally out on consoles so everybody go play it, one of the best games of 2017 and best WRPGs ever. Super glad it's reviewing as great as the original PC version and super happy that it sold a ton on PCs a year ago and will allow Larian to make even more stuff!

@heatdrive88: Yeah, all those questions about the game that Brad and Will were playing--and Rorie looking the game up online to answer some of those questions--were terrible. I can't believe people in chat would ask questions.

Did you watch last week's UPF where Jeff kept reading questions from the chat that had absolutely nothing to do with the game Rorie was playing?

I think I like the concept of Scum more than the actual game, which looked interesting to begin with, but ultimately ended up being boring.

People need to learn its ok to keep negative comments about people yo themselves.

forever and ever amen.

i will never understand what the personality-critics are hoping to achieve when they critique personalities on a personality-driven website.

i mean- who they are is the bombers' stock-in-trade and distinguishing feature. if you don't like it- no need to make a public declaration, just move on.

@andrewf87462: This so much. No one wants to talk bad about a member of a crew they like, but he could use some on camera awareness about this. UPF is a conglomeration of segments from different people, and if you are not interested in what someone else brings he needs to have the patience and politeness to ride it out without interruption.

Great UPF.

1) Brad seemed in great form and his little smiles when Rorie went off on a tangent were worth the price of admission.

2) Bizznizz Dave is the man.

3) Will.

4) Being able to curl one off in Scum.

Feedback isn't useless. You wouldn't decry Jeff for complaining about the shooting in a first-person shooter because shooting is the distinguishing feature. If you just don't watch because of a specific reason, you're making them guess why their viewership is decreasing.

Ugh, I know it takes a lot to make a game, but stuff like Scum seems so cynically targeted at getting streamers to do dumb stuff with it and get people to buy it that way. Is the game good? Doesn't matter, your favorite streamer is playing it
