I don't get all the hate for Rorie. Yeah he is awkward as fuck but I love him. Totally cool guy.

Same, and he puts in a ton of great work by the looks of it. Just the usual, portion of the userbase has to hate on someone. Was Patrick (now a whole different set of people hating on him) and now Rorie. No doubt the new hire will get flack as well. I wonder if it's just jealousy? People thinking they could do better.

It's not jealousy, it's that he always seems to talk over people without bringing much to the table when he does so, and the fact that he never seems to be interested in what's going on, so far as to completely forget what is happening in games of any pace or genre. He only ever brings any energy or conversation when he's 1. dominating in a game, or 2. messing up in a game, and it's usually to make excuses or complain. He's easily my least favorite person for UPFs, because he just doesn't fit the setting.

I'm sure he does good work behind the scenes, I'll never say that he doesn't. He just... doesn't feel like he belongs in these sorts of videos.

That Titanic game was my childhood, man. Still worth playing.

I find it hard to believe that people hate him, he's so adorable.

Being an affably awkward, whimsically likable guy is MAYBE the least popular profession on the Internet. Where everything is Serious Business.

I nearly lost my shit when Jeff was making fun of the TItanic dude's animations: TIm and Eric style.

Wow, Jeff sounded so fatherly and sincere when he offered Brad some of his Diet Coke. It was straight up heart-warming.

I'm jumping on this bandwagon too! Rorie's awesome! Always kind of bums me out that Brad doesn't seem to like him much... maybe its just an act for the show.

The Titanic game is one of my favorites from when I was younger and I hope they play more of it.

Everyone in the Titanic game animates like they're in a Peter Gabriel video.

@faltini: You'll still get ads with a monthly membership (always been that way), but if you're a yearly member you should PM Rorie for support.

Pretty funny how Matthew Rorie tried to play dumb, at the start, when Drew started playing Alpha Protocol.

Was that before the stream started?

That was my weak attempt at a joke. "Cold War" looked like it played a lot like Alpha Protocol.

There are pleeeeenty of fog doors without bosses Brad.

Yeah, but coming off Dark Souls 2 it feels like all fog doors are just doors to bosses. Haha. I remember getting into trouble with that because I was totally like "There can't be another boss behind here, I fought one five minutes ago."

But that Titanic game was amazing! Probably some of the creepiest animation I've ever seen.

One of the very first areas in Dark Souls 2 has like 5 or so fog doors in a row with no bosses behind them.

I'm so glad @drewbert didn't play Still Life. I really enjoyed it but it's not a UPF friendly game. It is a very serious and atmospheric point and click adventure game.

@meansoup: I think Bennett Foddy (the designer) used to be a professor there or something.

I just realized that Barabariball's scoring system is like tries in football. You can go for the easy 1-pointer (falling with the ball) or try for a full 2-point run.

Woah, that Barabariball Poleriders stage actually does look like the Princeton fountain. Did the devs go there?

Oh shit Titanic. The people were as scary then as they are now. Made for a great "something very bad is about to happen" atmosphere though. Also introduced me to the Rubaiyat and Omar Khayyam. Adventure games, always educational! I have learned an alarming amount of history from games, and even how to do base 8 and base 16 math (Rama).

Loved the fireworks conversation... good fireworks are so much fun. Our local shady guy used to traffic the good shit into NY. It was insanely fun to get a giant variety box of crazy, different shit. It's a blast just to see what each does and there's some really novel, clever stuff out there that we in nanny states never get to see. Those flying capsule-discs Drew mentioned were crazy because for me they'd either work phenomenally well, zipping straight up and emitting dazzling colored fountains and reports, or it'd just instantly DETONATE on the ground. The explosion was so much more than you'd expect, and cannot be safe at all... that's what's fun!

If you play BBB again I reckons you should turn off the ring-out penalty to stop it being 0-0 nearly every time :)

I think the default values do the game a bit of a disservice since most new players will score at most 2 points and then soon after be back to 0-0. I think the trick might be to jack up the scores for a goal or yeah eliminate the ring-out penalty.

Yeah I think taking a second or two to re-spawn is penalty enough, allowing the other team a better chance to score and all.

Wow, I remember playing that Titanic game when I was a kid! Pretty sure I didn't know you could talk to people since all I did was stand around waiting to see if the ship would sink if you took too long.
