    WARNING DONT WATCH THIS VIDEO UNTIL AFTER YOU PLAY FROG FRACTIONS AND AT LEAST BEAT LEVEL 1! also tell rich and jake SPIKESSSS!!!!

  • DeL Keyes

    Love that “ad break” marker in the middle of the video.

  • I love Beginner’s Guide, it was one of my three favorite games of 2015. It does not provoke you to see what happens when you look around the corner like the Stanley Parable, it provokes you into self reflection, questions how you deal with yourself and others. It is actually imho a great deconstruction of the psychological tension between creator and audience. Of course this only works for certain people, it is art after all and it either speaks to you or doesn’t.

  • Spoiled Ants

    Ok, great. now play Resident Evil 7 with a VR headset you monkeys.

  • Nero12

    The Stanley Parable is not a walking simulator. It condenses a game into it’s essential distinguishing aspect, choice. The Stanley Parable is all about choice.
    Walking simulators are not really “games” because they don’t give the player a choice, they are more in line with a movie or a book. They are “interactive” perhaps, but not in a very meaningful sense.

  • Ya got butts?

  • frankelee

    In 1,000 years future sociologists will watch these Pre-Rec videos…

    …And kill themselves.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    In Frog Fractions 2, when you’re shaving Obama, can you cut his throat? Asking for a friend.

  • Frank Lovejoy

    The Stanley Parable is “Hipster: The Game”. Pile of shit.

  • RLMkeepitup

    VERY COOL

  • Seth

    You’re the pig, so it’s you that gets cut.

  • Seth

    You guys review some really obscure stuff, lol. Angry Joe gets millions of views by reviewing mainstream stuff, even if much of it sucks. Ya’ll review stuff nobody has ever heard of like it’s time to move into the old folks home.

    And I say that with love for both of yas, in addition to my crush on film star Rich Evans.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Once I got to the Zork part of Frog Fractions I gave up.

    Always hated Zork.

  • thestalkinghead

    do you guys have a twitch channel? i can’t seem to find it in the description, or was that a gag?

  • Robotpals

    Angry Joe is more “hundreds of thousands” rather than “millions.” Who’s really off the hook is FGTEEV. They get 20 million views on any single video, and they have like 5 channels. If view count is most important, I recommend family-friendly. Otherwise, they’re probably doing exactly what they want.

    So you say you can’t “surprise” someone twice do you? Do you know what else is trying to surprise someone twice… STAR WARS!!! They said that they’re gonna give us another “I am your father” type surprise and the surprise is… I think that Rey, like Ren, is also the child of Han and Leia. I think that fifteen years ago, Han hid little Rey underneath the floorboards of the Millennium Falcon while saying, “I’ll come back for you sweetheart.” The Irving Boys then stole the ship. Ducain then stole it from them, who then sold the girl, and the ship, to Unkar Plutt on Jakku. Ducain told Rey that he’d take her back to her family. That’s why, during the flashback, little Rey calls out after Ducain, as he’s flying off, “No! Come back!” Han effectively lost little Rey, out in space, along with the Millennium Falcon. That’s why Rey’s in the exact same place as the ship. It’s not a coincidence! Han spends the next fifteen years, “double checking the Western Reaches” looking for Rey. Han screws over his fellow smugglers outta their money because he’s using that money to try and find Rey. Ren kills Han for committing the crime of losing the girl. A teenage Ben Solo felt Rey’s pain on Jakku, causing him to turn to the dark side. According to Star Wars lore a Jedi can sense when a loved one is in pain. (The book “Bloodline” said that Ben didn’t go bad until after the age of 23. I think that this was put in just to keep fans from figuring out the truth.) When Ren tells Han that, “His old self was weak and foolish like his father.” He says this because Ren also blamed himself for failing to protect little Rey. (Ben’s little sis.) When Ren reads Rey’s mind, he becomes angry when saying, “You think that Han’s like the father you never had. He would of disappointed you.” Ren means that Han “disappointed” him “as a father” in some way. All the flashbacks and exposition, explaining all of this, will be delivered to the audience by Han Solo, via a bunch of missed, and omitted, conversations that took place during TFA. Like when Maaz tells Han, “Tell me about the girl.” The camera then pans off them. Then later on Leia says, “Han told me about the girl.” But we didn’t HEAR Han tell Leia about the girl did we? And, I think, that Han does recognize Rey. When Rey “bypasses the compressor” Han has a non-plus reaction and runs to talk to Chewy. Rey makes a face like, “Why did he react that way?” You see how eager Han is to talk to Chewy when he says to BB8, “Ball move!” Han just realized that his long lost little girl was right in front of him. He was shitting his pants! I believe that you’ll hear all those, unheard, conversations in episode nine. (More Harrison Ford in Star Wars. Yay!) The original trilogy teased scenarios like Luke killing his own father, to protect his sister, causing him to turn to the dark side, and Leia becoming a Jedi herself. These same scenarios are being played out, and coming to fruition, with Ren and Rey, the next generation. Now it is heavily implied that Rey is Luke’s daughter. I do think that Luke has a deceased wife and a long lost child, I just don’t think that this child is Rey. I believe that it’s actually General Hux. My theory being that; Hux is Luke’s force-less born son in disguise. Luke Junior grew up dying of force envy. After interrogating Poe, Ren tells Hux, “I leave that [the non-force magic] to you.” Luke Junior is visible seen sneering with jealousy at Han Junior. When Snoke and Ren talk of the “awakening” in the force, Hux is seen walking just off frame. (This is suspiciously done, just to show the audience, that Hux DOESN’T have the force.) Snoke had a member of his shadow council “pass off” Luke Junior as Hux Junior to hide his true identity. Hence why Hux Senior just “discovers” his illegitimate son one day. That’s also why “Ginger Hitler” is far too young to be a top military commander. AND that is also WHY is this bad guy a boyishly-handsome, cleft-chinned redhead. Is all this suspicious? Of course! That’s because he’s the biological product of Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker. Little Rey starting at Luke’s Academy must of started this whole mess, and pushed L.J.’s jealousy over the edge. And we all know how the dark side loves Skywalker anger and hated. That’s my theory anyway. Thanks for reading!

    Rich Evans has a GIRLFRIEND??!?!!!?!?!??!??!?!?!?!??!?!?

  • kuhpunkt

    Fiancee. For a long time.

  • Seth

    Clearly.

    But a small concession (reviewing modern games) that pumps more Rich Evans into MILLIONS more American households is a no-brainer.

  • LameSame

    What. The fuck. Is this?

  • LameSame

    That’s exactly when I gave up too. I do have a soft spot for Zork, but I suck at it.

  • Spoiled Ants

    I get that many people like Rich, but let’s be real here. Grumpy old men are cute but I wouldn’t want to watch a whole show about them.

  • Thank you for the spoiler warning about Frog Fractions. I paused your video so I could play and finish Frog Fractions first. It was absurdly awesome.

  • Damn lazy millennials. Get off my lawn. It took about 10 minutes to finish that part of Frog Fractions. There’s only like 3 rooms. Just “look” at every noun and then try to interact with every noun in ways that make logical sense. Occasionally, you need to use one noun on another noun.

  • Hux Senior?

  • Jaws

    *Boyfriend.

  • Robotpals

    Please don’t use “thrust” and “Rich Evans” so close together.

  • “Lazy millennials” is becoming the new lazy insult.

  • tl;dr

  • Somewhere an editor and a typesetter just completed their suicide pact.

  • Three Stars

    My recurrent comment to these sort of posts is “you’re what editors are afraid is hiding under their bed”. I think mine is better than what you wrote there. Feel free to use it.

  • Crixxxx

    You use a safety razor, not a straight edge, so no.

    Rey is Luke’s mother she’s going to travel back in time and rape annikin before episode 1, commencing his journey into being a whiney bitch. Reys mother is Leia and her father is Lando who conceived her during a foursome with Han and Chewbacca.

  • Jaws

    No way dude, Star Wars is a sexless universe now, didn’t you get the memo. Yeah it’s a Disney movie.

  • fred

    The Stanley Parable would be okay if it was 5 dollars instead of 14, since it is just a glorified walking simulator.

    I got paid $104,000 last year by doing an online job at home a­n­d I did that by working part-time f­o­r 3+ hrs on daily basis. I used a money making opportunity I was introduced by this company i found on-line and I am so amazed that i earned so much money on the side. It’s beginner-friendly a­n­d I am just so blessed that I found out about this. Check out what I do… GOBIG92.COM

    Yeah, I get how text adventures work. It just wasn’t something I was up to doing when it came about in Frog Fractions. I just wasn’t in the mood for a Zork thing.

    Rules of syntax dictate that “thrust” and “Rich Evans” MUST be used close together.

    Well we are what we eat.

    And we are finally on the same page.

    Tis a beautiful moment.

  • Thanatos

    The creator of Beginner’s Guide *is* Coda. It’s basically explaining how he had a mental breakdown after the development of The Stanley Parable because it ended up being too popular.

    And yeah, it’s a bit disappointing, because you instead learn that the creator of the Stanley Parable is a crazy person who hates himself.

    Same for me with Jeremy Soule. His first work on Secret of Evermore leveled it up from other games, made it unique. John Williams style with big 80s flashback potencial. But he tries to avoid that topic, even seems to be embarrased about it.
