    It’s like a time machine!

  • ModernDayMinstrel

    I thought you guys were done reviewing Trans4mers?

  • http://www.tap-start.com/ Mirkwood

    Looks like Call of Duty: Halo Edition

  • http://kingengrishkube.deviantart.com/ kube Duke of Anjou

    i cant help quoting Mr Evans.. a lot.

  • dk

    Seems you guys didn’t play it enough to make a review of it…

  • ModernDayMinstrel

    That asterisk scene is so dense.

  • http://www.movieboozer.com Ken Eckman

    I’m curious what is pixelated behind Rich. (though the fact that it is pixelated already means that they’re not likely to reveal it)

  • Ritchie Martin

    They didn’t even understand the parkour elements, it seems sort of ridiculous they would feel qualified enough to try say if it’s recommendable or not

  • Robby

    I actually call it Titan Fail. Ummm, because it sucks?

  • Paulus Cañamonjas

    Wtf is that green pixelated thing next to Rich Evans?

  • http://www.tap-start.com/ Mirkwood

    looks like a yoda head

  • spidertour02

    Why is there a pixel monster eating Rich’s left shoulder?

  • ModernDayMinstrel

    I call it Fitan Tall because you can fight in tall robots.

  • Robby

    IT MUST BE A SPACE COP SPOILER.

    UNSUBSCRIBE

  • Paulus Cañamonjas

    You´re right. I thought it was a koala. Now, why is joda censored? lol

  • Paulus Cañamonjas

    Yoda*

  • Paulus Cañamonjas

    So much effort in this shooters, for nothing…I´d rather play Urbanterror

  • http://www.jasonlefkowitz.net Jason Lefkowitz

    Nitpick: killing grunts isn’t worth nothing. It’s just worth a lot less than killing human players is. (It’s something like a grunt is worth 1 point, human players is worth 4 or 5.)

  • Memoman

    Well, at least it’s not a military shooter about shooting people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

    Is it?

  • Pal

    This was…disappointing.
    The lion’s share of your complaints seemed to be derived from your own unwillingness to learn the mechanics of the game or your disdain for the genre in general. This makes for a poor review by most definitions and begs the question why you even decided to analyze the game at all.
    You guys complained of having too little to talk about yet you offered no particular insight into your actual experience other than “we didn’t do very well.”
    I still have high hopes for this series, and there is certainly nothing wrong with having personal preferences, but unless your personalities are all you are selling here, I hope you can give a more articulated and thought-out account of your feelings in the next review.

  • Robby

    Anyone else catch that?

    http://i60.tinypic.com/nxtn69.jpg

  • No

    Wow, not knowing who is friendly or a red is game breaking right from the get go. Alas, alpha and beta testing barely exists any more, just shove it out there tag on the customer support service info and call er a day eh?
    X-Box lost me at the “need internet connection to play” debacle anyway.

    Really starting to like this series, let me know when PS4 is worth buying please boys.

  • Robby

    Rich, it seems like you have a lot of unresolved emotional issues with Mass Effect 3. Do you want to talk about it?

  • sigaba

    WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOUR FACEdddd SHOULDER?

  • beevbo

    The grunts do count towards your goal in Attrition. When I first started playing a racked up a lot of Attrition points just killing grunts until I was good enough to start taking on pilots. At least that way I was contributing to the team while I was getting better at the game.

    I could be wrong, but doesn’t grunt and specter kills reduce your titan build time?

  • dextromethorphan

    Couldn’t agree more with your recommendation. Also, thank you for not going for the easy pun and calling it a titan fail.

  • Captain Turbo

    Is Jack by any chance heir to the Hewlett-Packard fortune?

  • No

    Yeah cause first impressions are useless in life right?
    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    I think it’s the Teagan Presley fleshlight they have.

  • Anders Hass

    This is recommended if*

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Rich Evans looks like he hasn’t slept for the last few days.

    Nope where?

    Rich Evans looks like he got stoned like a biblical whore

  • ModernDayMinstrel

    Another unfortunate run-in with a cat, perhaps?

  • Permian

    Planetside 2 is free, and you can tell the bad guys apart.

  • L0lwut

    If Rich Evans likes single player games you guys should stream on of the Amnesia games next time you do a live one.

  • Paul Schumann

    If they don’t like it that’s fine. They’re just not the target audience. If you’re not interested in shooting at blue vs red and enjoyed watching District 9 or Alien(s) for the atmosphere, then this game may be for you.
    Its an interesting thing how the shiny cgi of the prequels looks so terrible compared with the aged models of an Alien or Moon. Yet in games, the guys want that bright, shiny, silly vibe.
    I played Titanfall for a few hours using Origin’s free weekend offer. The no falling damage is great for making the game fun (shocker, its not “superrealistic” in that aspect). When I opened the game it insisted that I finish a tutorial before jumping into multiplayer, so I was well aware of being able to run on walls, and super-jump. I can understand their frustration in actual titan-suit battles. I felt clumsy and awkward in the suit compared with the lithe & sneaky pilot. It’s sort of a cheap shot to complain about everything being gray, beige, etc. The colored dots on the minimap are there for a reason… The game felt like they had fixed the climbing/movement issues in the crysis sequel mp and the graphics looked fine.
    All that being said, I would not recommend you to buy it at full price ($59.99). If it’s the primary game you’re going to play for the summer, then get it for $35 sealed on ebay.

  • jaymanxyz2

    So…is that a censor above Rich Evans’ left shoulder?

  • Memoman

    Jacks’ pot plant.

  • Maggie

    Probably a Space Cop spoiler.

  • MrPractical

    Guys, you should play Shovel Knight! It’s an absolutely fantastic throwback to several of the best NES games.

  • troof

    yeah, redlettermedia, be more articulated and thought-out! dinks!

  • http://hardycases.com/ Hale

    Because he was talking about Mass Effect for the past few days.

  • Nicholas Joseph Martinelli

    Rich, if player vs player duels are your game, download Fistful of Frags. It’s free, fast paced, and fun.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Gotta live up to their prestigious hack fraud title.

  • El_Runko

    Why is there a drawing of Jack on the fridge?

  • dubost

    Since Rich doesn’t like multiplayer only games, what’s his opinion on something like ‘Mario Kart 8’? It does feature a singleplayer, but that’s not the focus of the game. It’s a game meant to be played with others… Would he rather play ‘Mario Kart 8′ just in singleplayer?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Half this review was either not understanding the mechanics of the game, or just not being any good at it.

    It’s pretty much summed up at the end when Rich says he wouldn’t recommend ANY game in an entire genre.

  • vspngs

    Well, it’s just another generation of gamers.

  • senorhuxtable

    Parkour? What’s that some kind of new ethnic food trend? Ah these kids today, I can’t even keep up with the new trends…

  • Rootfish

    Is that Rich’s dildo collection the mosaic is censoring?

  • Dawn Shard

    It was not necessary from Rich for this review to bring up that he favorites adventure Games over multiplayer. What does that tell us about Titan Fall? Nothing…
    Or to use a “Critic word”: it is just “Filler”
    Compare TF to other great (or famous) MULTIPLAYER Shooter like Battlefield, Planetside 2, Counter Strike, Unreal, Team Fortress or even GoldenEye. To give us an impression where TF stands in compare to them. Because that’s what we want to know. And if TF was your first multiplayer Shooter, just tell us your opinion.

    It would be interesting to hear you guys talking about the downfall of the Final Fantasy franchise, or the comical- ziation of Zelda. Dark Souls 2, Xenoblade, Seiken Densetsus cuty-ziation…or whatever. The “shlogg” Kingdom Hearts has become…since the first game actually… (or about Disney and how it sucks on Anime/jap. Game culture to stay alive as the parasite zombie Company it is)

    But you can not bring up other genres to compare a Shooter with them.
    It’s like comparing Chess with reading a book…

    BTW: Rich embodies Plinkett. But the voiceacting in the Plinkett reviews is Mike I think… it’s weird to imagine him saying all this murderer stuff… =)

  • Robby

    It’s worth buying just for Resogun. Mmm, Resogun.

  • senorhuxtable

    Great review, I think you guys might really enjoy Spec Ops: The Line.

    It starts and looks like a fairly generic bro-op shooter (it plays like Mass Effect) but once your character commits horrific war crimes the game really begins to shine. The storyline draws heavily from “Heart of Darkness” and is excellent satire on the whole genre of shooters.

    One of my favourite parts is that the loading screen hints start out very innocent, “Use cover to your advantage” but become steadily darker as the game progresses.
    “To kill for yourself is murder. To kill for your government is heroic. To kill for entertainment is harmless.”

  • Dragonfall

    You look at the freaking mini map if you wanna know they’re good guys

  • Saren Nevac

    Whats that blurred object? Is it a giant green vagina from Spacecop? ;-)

  • Neal Harris

    Gamers from their generation weren’t born into modern gaming culture’s expectations of highly realistic graphics and the styles of gameplay that best feature them such as combat simulators. When they first got into gaming, the world of a videogame was necessarily colorful, simplistic, and playing through it was mostly escapist fun as opposed to highly competitive violence.

  • Wonderful_Person

    They’ve hated every game they’ve played on this show, and while I agree Risk of Rain has its fair share of problems, they just seem to be out of touch or not willing to play the game how it should.

  • senorhuxtable

    Sounds like poor design to me, especially when compared to something like TF2

  • JackgarPrime

    Are you saying you don’t have one on your fridge?

  • thehilblog

    Guys… I love ya… I love this site… I love PreRec… but this video is your low point. You don’t really seem to understand the game, and just because you don’t understand it/aren’t good at it doesn’t make it inherently bad. I feel you on the muted color palette and generic soldier models but you just seem to fundamentally misunderstand how this game works and is played. Still love ya… but yeah, maybe stick to indie/old school stuff in your future videos.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    That’s not Jack. That guy has hair.

  • El_Runko

    You caught me. Of course I have a drawing of Jack on my fridge.

    You have bested me, sir.

  • Dswynne

    I’m just waiting for a good Robotech game…

  • Alex Lee

    That’s one massive fleshlight. How big is this woman?

  • Dawn Shard

    I startet recently with Planetside2 and it is better there but not perfect. Sometimes I find 2 people standing around and one of them is an opponent! But nobody of the two realised it…^^

    The faction colors help most of the time (purple, blue, red) but there are skins and professions (healer) that have extrem different colors (yellow, white)…. also the blue faction is not complete in one color like the other 2 teams. Then it becomes a problem.

    But that makes it also somehow more realistic. I often watched other faction members, aiming at me…but not shooting instantly. They probably ask themselfes (like myself sometimes) “What team is that guy?” “Did he saw me?” Do I have a chance?” “Is he (very much unlikly) frendly?”. War is not only about killing and who is faster with the gun. It is also about normal people in a not normal situation. Planetside has a bit of that “war” feeling.

  • Mark Andrew Edwards

    I think I’m about done with Pre-Rec. If I want to hear jaded people moping about games they’re terrible at playing…actually scratch that. I don’t want to hear that.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    The bottom line is; is realistic fun? Some may think it is, but I suspect the majority doesn’t. Isn’t the point of video games to escape reality in the first place?

  • dabb

    Rich looks hagridden.

  • thelionroars

    Titanfall is the one game I still load Windows for instead of Linux. Some notes:

    1. You are the first people I have seen walking everywhere in Titanfall, in about 200 hours of play. You do realise the movement is parkour and double jumps? It’s like you skipped the beginning tutorial.
    2. If you walk around everywhere in the open, you are going to get shot.
    3. Not enough colours? Not much I can say here, except people play FPS for the gameplay, not the colours. And Titanfall’s gameplay is really quite good if you are actually interested in playing an FPS. The fact that pilots are hard to spot is a deliberate mechanic to help even out pilot vs titan combat.
    4. There are different mechs(titans) with different levels of armor vs mobility. Also with chaingun and several other guns, you have critical damage areas when the shields are down that are highlighted in red.
    5. I only play on PC, I know people do play it on console but damned if I know how… the overhead showing friendly doesn’t lag on PC.
    6. Grunts do score points in Attrition(Team Deathmatch), and with the appropriate loadout you can get a high score from just killing them. They also indicate where pilots are respawning.

    7. If you have no interest in a genre like FPS and are not at all interested in learning the basic mechanics, don’t fucking review them! I don’t know if this was a response to requests to review this game but you both had no insight to offer for this game other than you don’t like the genre.
    8. Not actually bothering to learn the game, you missed all of the great moments in titanfall like the aforementioned parkour movement, rodeoing a titan as a pilot and taking it down by machinegunning its weak spot, running for your life when you’re caught out in the open vs a titan, the epic cat and mouse strategy, etc etc.
    9. If you don’t like the genre that’s fine, but don’t put up a 10 minute review of a game you played for 10 minutes.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Aww. His face looks so soft.

  • blau

    Rich sounds like one of those people who joins a MMO and then wants to solo. But about this game, why review a game that you didn’t bother to learn the mechanics? Like, you couldn’t bother to look at the mini-map. Even during your enemy or friend segment, you can see on the map who is a friend and who is an enemy. This is the third game that you have played where you hated it because you couldn’t figure out how to play it. Maybe you should play the games a little longer than 15 minutes. Good thing you are doing Sonic next. It’s for children, and requires no skill or ability, so you should do fine. Anyway, I find these interesting. You’re still new to this whole game review thing, so keep at it guys. I’m sure you will get better. Please don’t stop.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Wow. I can’t believe you idiots felt that way about this game. You’re clearly wrong. *Inset game title* was clearly *insert opposite opinion of Rich Evans and Jack*.

    Seriously, stick to talking about moopies.

    UNSUBSCRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIBE!

  • fskn

    Great little song there at the end… Also, sex support?

  • Boehm

    Titian Fall? More like Titan fail

  • dollar store cashier wife

    i’m not sure what age has to do with simply being informed on the subject they’re “reviewing”

  • Dawn Shard

    Maybe it depends on the genre how much realism you need. In case of PS2 I would say “yes, that kind of realism makes fun”
    because it creates interesting situations. You realise that there is a person behind that ingame soldier. Not just a moving target.

    A bit of realism is essential for every game, I think. (Sky with clouds, people that interact with you) or you have to be very creative to tell a story. But since I played a flight simulator I’m also not a fan of hyper realism, that’s for sure ;)

    “Playing games to escape reality”? Some of us (like myself) use them for that purpose. Diving into other worlds and exploring them is one of the greatest gifts of our time! But others play games to have fun or just doing things with other people. Firing a gun without cleaning it afterwards^^. They don’t even know what the game is about nor are they interested in it. What I cannot understand but that’s how it is.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Does this game have a single person campaign mode?

  • milath

    Guys.. guys… for the love of god, if you talk about a game for 10 minutes, include it! Don’t tease us! Please! It doesn’t matter that it wasn’t Titanfall.

    Just a thought but maybe have like a little segment where you just talk games in general or something. I wanna hear opinions. Not ‘we’ve been talking about X for 10 minutes!’ then we get like the last 10 seconds of that conversation. Or maybe release it as an ‘extra’ or something if you didn’t feel like doing it every time.

    Otherwise I enjoyed this. I feel the same way as Rich on the whole multiplayer thing. I want an empowering experience, not a constant reminder of how crappy I’d be in a real war. heh

  • Sully

    I agree, you should be able to distinguish between friend or foe withOUT having to glance down at a fucking mini-map every two seconds. It shows lazy game design.

    Oh well, it’s a gimmick game, designed to sell Wave-1 next-gen systems. It’s currently scored at 6.2 out of 10, so I’m guessing you’re not alone in your opinion of the game.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    Mass Effect 3 has been a minor recurring joke in RLM for a while now which is probably why they didn’t include any footage of it.

  • milath

    Yes, I’m aware of the recurring joke which is mostly just Rich bringing up the ending real quick. I still wouldn’t mind some more footage of them chatting about it either. Clearly Rich has some pretty strong feelings on the subject since he’s said he’ll never ever play another Mass Effect game.

    Eh.. whatever. I like this show and I like hearing them talk video games. I’d love to hear some more. That’s all I’m saying. :)

  • milath

    Looking at a mini-map is hardly a replacement for making it so you can tell quickly which team the guy you’re looking at is on. What happens when there’s a large bunch of guys in the same area? By the time you figure out whose dot is whose on the mini-map you’re already dead. I’ve been there myself more than a few times in Titanfall. It’s a valid criticism that this game doesn’t do enough to distinguish teams, in my opinion.

    I’m also pretty sure they played the game longer than 15 minutes. But whatever. They aren’t ‘professional game reviewers’. They’ve said many times this is a side thing they do for fun cause they like talking about video games. And most of us like hearing what they think, even if they aren’t spending the required 100 hours of playtime to give a full pro review or whatever.

  • Balgor Vern

    His Japanese dildo miniatures collection, yes.

  • Jake

    Nice episode guys! It’s cool to see the RLM family grow and evolve.
    also
    does anyone know what that song was at the end? A link to soundcloud or something would be awesome

  • milath

    It has a ‘campaign’ which is mostly just radio chatter before and after it throws you into a multiplayer map. So, no.. no single player.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    You gotta take it for what it is. Pre Rec is just an RLM experiment/fluff between their main stuff. It’s 2 guys who have an established fan base from doing something completely different who sit down and play a game for an afternoon so it’s hard for me to take too seriously. I kinda enjoy the occasional “fish out of water review” element, if that makes sense. If it’s real game reviews you want go watch JonTron or someone. (Or you hacks go making some more Gamestations *cough*)

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    (your username)

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    It would be nice to know what it is they want from a gaming experience. The 3rd review in, I know they hate muted colors and that certain genres don’t interest them. With HiTB, they don’t care about visuals or the experience; any genre potentially works so long as it has a cohesive story, non-cliched characters, and something to feel invested in. Pre-Rec is the exact opposite of HiTB, and it’s frustrating to work around that.

  • Rick_Berman

    Saying Jack and Rich are a different “generation” or they aren’t the target audience may be somewhat true but it doesn’t make their opinions incorrect, They are OPINIONS.
    It’s good to see a review from their point of view because they see games for what they really are, Uninfluenced by friends or internet Hype.
    If you aren’t instantly very good at multilayer it can be fustrating, and its not instinct to stare at the minimap to know what to shoot at.
    I like (not love) Titanfall but understand their POV.

  • Epifanes

    I don’t like it that you upload these things straight to YouTube. It makes me feel less special.

  • Thanatos2k

    Playing a first person shooter with a controller? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Jackie Chiles

    Next week, Red Letter Media does a review of the new game Halo: Combat Evolved

  • Thanatos2k

    I know. It’s so distracting. What is it?

  • Thanatos2k

    Also the complaint about being unable to tell who is who is absolutely valid. Compare with Team Fortress 2 where Valve actually did research and experimentation into the character models and silhouettes.

    In Team Fortress 2 even from a long distance you can instantly tell what team a player is on and just as importantly what class they are and what weapon they’re holding.

    These crappy generic FPS games don’t care and don’t bother.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lATk530jVOs Boss Nass

    Yea, the dark ages of gaming.
    There is such a difference between a mouse and a controller. I played Halo3 with some friends on a console last year, it was an ok experience but you are so much more imersed when using a mouse.

  • Manioc

    I totally play Team Fortress 2 for the colors. Blu 4 life!

  • Manioc

    I just want to knead it like dough. We may need to confront the possibility that Rich is a larval pizza.

  • StealsYourWaifu

    I love these. Though I also was one of the few that really liked the Gamestation eps….maybe a crossover of the two, like half in the bag? eh? eh?

  • david blane

    the problem with designing a multiplayer fps is once you’ve addressed all the common complaints you end up with team fortress 2, which people can already play for free

    oh, you get to that in the video. it’s pretty unavoidable

  • Maggie

    Oh! I think I figured out what’s blurred! It’s probably the alien masks for Space Cop. The final painted versions.

  • Azriel24

    I want to play “Good Guy or Bad Guy” now.

  • http://www.twitter.com/kzap333 Andrew Coleman

    Yup, I had to re-wind it and re-watch just to check I wasn’t going mad.

  • NotRickBerman

    It’s gonna be great.

  • Paulus Cañamonjas

    It´s so dense, every single cheek has so many things going on.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Yes, please. We need a 50-minute review of why you hate it.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    The pixels are in muted colors. Therefore, I hate it.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Immersed? I get that it’s more accurate to use a mouse for aiming, but what I’m playing the game with never affects how immersed I am in the game.

  • Thanatos2k

    He’s not entirely wrong. Being able to mouse look is way more immersive than stick turning.

  • Jason Ross

    How about der hackenfrueds play Naked Robber or throw darts oats. Adam Sandler portrait upon the wall.

    THOSE are REAL juegos!

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    You sound like my ex-girlfriend.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I, for one, want a realistic Mario game.

    Those mushrooms need guts, yo. When Mario gets hit, I wanna see some blood.

  • TexasDice

    I case you guys watch game of thrones, you should check out the game:

    http://www.gameofthrones-rpg.com/index.php?lang=en&rub=home

    The graphics are outdated, the gameplay and interface is miserable.

    BUT THE STORY IS REALLY GOOD! It’s a really well told story, that isn’t already spoiled by one the books, because it’s written for this alone.

    The plot is well written, the characters feel like real humans, their motivations are believeable and every twist, every initial hole makes sense at some point.

    Do I recommend this game? Yes, but only play it once and like the show/books. Bite yourself through it, like a cold pizza.

  • WJF

    Well, he’s certainly not hair to the Hewlett-Packard fortune…

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Again with the not-gays?

    I assume she too first joined an MMO but then wanted to go solo. Geddit?

  • Lat

    Immersion is entirely up to the game itself. The controls don’t determine how invested you are in the characters and whether or not you feel a part of the game.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Begs the question =/= raises the question.

    Begging the question is a type of logical fallacy where one of the premises assumes the conclusion is true. It can be a type of circular reasoning.

    I had a longer comment written out about the plasticity of language [and defending your usage against my comment] but Disqus, being Disqus, deleted it.

    My Asshole Senses® were tingling and I just had to shit on your parade [Get it? Asshole. Shit. You get it. Laugh.].

    Anyway, I offer you a pre-emptive ©anadian Sorry.

    Sorry.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    That’s not new. That game came out in November, 2001. That’s like 20 years ago.

    Check your facts!

    (can’t understand sarcasm)

  • Tukka

    Controls can absolutely determine whether or not you feel like you’re a part of the game. The controls are what directly connect you to your character (or whoever/whatever it is you’re controlling). Bad or awkward controls can break immersion. Very natural, fluid controls can help you lose yourself in the game.

  • humdiblifier

    play counter-strike for a bit then try playing call of duty or some other shite generic shooter on a console. you’ll notice a huge difference…

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I understood your sarcasm, matched it, and raised you an RLM reference.

    Your ironic reply is just icing on the cake.

  • Chris

    Guys. Shovel Knight, please. I can’t fully like the game until I see that you like it. Until then I’ll say “It’s a well-made, fun love letter to the 8-Bit era” on internet threads. Once I see you that like it, I’ll say “It’s quite possibly the best game of the year.” If you don’t like it, I’ll say “It’s a fun, but ultimately frivolous, mediocre attempt at capturing that Famicom charm.”

    The clock is ticking.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    It’s Peter’s last name in the new ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ franchise.

  • Lat

    Touché. I’ve only ever played on consoles so I guess I should butt out of this conversation lol

  • Lat

    I like TitanFall. Frustrating at times, boring maps, and generic gameplay are all still overshadowed by BEING ABLE TO FIGHT IN GIANT ROBOTS. That’s awesome I don’t care who you are.

    It becomes exponentially more enjoyable as your skill increases too. It’s maddening when one first starts playing it, but as time goes on it becomes more and more fun.

    Edit: Not worth $64.change though. Don’t buy it unless you can overlook the aforementioned downfalls to be able to pilot giant robots.

  • TheZaius

    “SPOILER ALERT: YAAAAWWWWWNNN.”

    That’s just the best.

  • Dr. Blake Downs

    Mitch, I don’t think you can ever quit these guys.

    Well, one thing that isn’t an opinion is when Rich says the bots serve no purpose but to make bad players feel good. I haven’t played the game, so correct me if I’m wrong, but that is inaccurate, is it not? Killing bots decreases your titan build time meter and directly impact the score of one game mode. I also imagine they could be used to screen player movement, or that they will expose the position of players who are shooting at them.

    Beyond that, the bots give the game a little more atmosphere by making the maps feel a bit busier without keeping the actual player counts low, which is helpful for certain technical and gameplay reasons.

    And while it is kind of nice to have a different perspective, I have to question the point of having someone who doesn’t like multiplayer games without single player games review a game that fits just that description. You normally wouldn’t you publish a review for a popular sushi bar by a guy who hates sushi who says, “eh, the tempura was pretty good.” There’s not much value in that.

    With Half in the Bag, Jay and Mike seem to do a reasonably good job of going into movies relatively uninfluenced by hype, while at the same time being informed movie-goers who understand something about film-making (plus with HitB you get some entertaining interludes and a bit more character). Rich and Jack are basically a couple semi-casual gamers whose opinions and insights never stray too far beyond what you might find on your average gaming forum.

    Still, I definitely feel where Jack is coming from. I like the idea of the dynamic challenge of playing against another player, but I also am not so good at FPS games. It definitely is cool to see someone like me give voice to some of these frustrations in a video with some good production values. We could probably use more reviews from people who are “uninitiated,” but still know how to articulate their experience.

    I guess the short supposition I would give is that the Mass Effect trilogy is like (not exactly) Star Wars OT. The first one is relatively low budget, fairly successful game that establishes the lore. The second is very well done, builds on the established lore, has many compelling characters, and has higher production values. The third gives you all the action you could want, but there’s too much in it and it magnifies the shortcomings of the ending.

    Personally, I’m not mad at Bioware largely because they did try to fix it with the expanded endings..Obviously, it doesn’t fix everything, but it’s an honest attempt when they could have easily not make those DLC or worse, charge us for the better endings.

  • Booger

    Love the episodes. Great variety of games. Would obviously love to hear your thoughts on Bioshock or maybe an obscure one here: Robot Alchemic Drive for the PS2. I played RAD as a kid and I loved it. Looking back I think it was ahead of it’s time. It was an open sandbox game like GTA where you picked your own character and your own giant robot. You battled invading monsters and robots between exploring the town and upgrading your robot or building new ones. How well you defended the town decided how the story played out and effected how much the city payed you in taxes to customize and repair your robots. But here’s what I think made it you unique. You control your robot from your (the character’s) perspective. It gave the game an amazing sense of scale and atmosphere to see my robot throw another robot through a sky-scraper (I explored mins ago) from a second story building a few hundred yards away. Only to feel terrible about the death and destruction and realize I lost funding. And you got to choose how and where your robot engages the enemy and where you view it from. Sometimes those elements became an active part of gameplay (battles cover a lot of ground) lending to the atmosphere (as do the funding mechanics). It felt epic to climb to the shoulder of my robot and square off with another giant robot with the city at my back. Sorry for the rant but I’m the only person I’ve met whose played this game and in retrospect I think it’s really unique..but if I remember the controls are not great (appropriate for the robot) and I admit a some obvious nostalgia.

    Try to headshot someone with a controlstick and you’ll know what I mean, It is just frustrating without a mouse and when you pull it off you wonder how much blindluck/autoaim the universe provided for you.

    Or when you know you are facing two enemies on opposite sides of yourself and you finish of the first guy you don’t have to wait thirty minutes while turning just to be able to shoot the other guy.

    Every move you make is instant. So immersive. So much more fun.

    Not olny that how the hell do you think to make a review about something and 80% of what you say is simply wrong. Rich mentioned several game mechanics like killing grunts and simply ignored that thay do guive points to your team and reduce bild time, and that you can use other stuff to increase those effects. Thats only one goddamm example. The entire video feels like this

    Their opinions are still more straightforward and honest than most gamer critics.

  • Drain

    I don’t know what to tell you guys, but FPS have always been about twitch reflexes and who shoots who first, never any kind of skill or intellect. You mention “ambushing”, ya, welcome to FPS. That’s the entire genre, shoot them before they shoot you. It’s pretty damn repetitive and boring, yet people eat this shit up year after year, with each title being a best seller. They go out and pay 60$ for what is barely any different than what they already paid 60$ for not even less than a year ago on the last one. But yes, basically this is just CoD Mech Warfare from what I’ve seen and heard. It’s another copy/paste with a new gimmick added to appear different. They know shooters are getting stale as tap water at this point, so giving it a different pair of trousers is a solution to the problem. I wonder when we’ll get another one for Star Wars, at least that has a decent universe with differing factions behind it. A newer Battlefront or CnC Renegade could be something fresh again, but instead of getting anything like those, we’ll just keep getting military shooter after military shooter.

    “YAAAAWWWWWNNN” is right. I wonder how long it’ll take for this fad to lose enough popularity for us to get something different. There is a pretty big hole in the market right now for someone to actually make something different and be very successful, not only with shooters, but also MMOs and RTS’. But instead of even trying, everyone just wants to copy/paste, and throw in a new gimmick or two.

    You’ve been hustled megatrol. If the grunts aren’t actually a threat to players, they’re still just window dressing that don’t really mean anything. Players are being a fooled a lot now days, simply believing that because something is there, it’s adding something to the game. Good examples of more window dressing is the A.I. in RE 6 and Bioshock Infinite(Elizabeth). They add absolutely nothing to the game, but players are fooled into thinking they do. Look, Helena is shooting! She’s totally helping! Ya but she’s doing zill damage. And she can’t die. She’s window dressing. Look, Elizabeth is summoning in stuff I can use! She’s helping! No. That would have been in the environment already. It’s just window dressing. Cleverly disguised window dressing on a stick, and as Rich said, these(Titanfall) just make bad players feel better as if they’re contributing something.

  • DanceOfBirther

    No, it isn’t. I learned that lesson from Rainbow Six.

  • Drain

    Some people like the realistic colors, while others like more colors or cartoon graphics. I don’t know why you’d argue over this. What should disappoint you is the fact that the market is flooded with military shooters that are barely any different from one another. The main reason TF 2 stands out is not because of its colors, but because there aren’t 50 other titles just like it all released a few years of each other.

  • Drain

    I too was wondering why they censored the side of the screen; it had to be to prevent some kind of copyright on a poster.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TwoAwfulGuys Liam Harrison

    Exactly, that’s why I said it was subjective.

    That is why I like Titanfall, it is still a military shooter with at least one foot in the real world populated by the Battlefields and Call of Dutys, but it has jetpacks, wallrunning and robots and the speed and frenetic pace of a Tribes or Counterstrike, without being that “hardcore”.

  • Drain

    Putting aside the fact that your definition of review is very narrow minded, where did it say this was a fully educated in depth review? Or a review at all? You seem to be one of those idiots that think EVERY video on EVERYTHING is a review, then complain when it isn’t. That said, if you don’t want to see their opinions, perhaps you should cease watching their videos, or take your own advice, and keep your opinions private, as you certainly didn’t add anything to other people’s knowledge.

    But I don’t think a new Battlefront will be any good. Seeing what DICE and EA are doing with BF: Hardline, Battlefront 3 might just be Battlefield with blasters.
    It’s sad that the devs won’t experiment anymore, they rather want to appease the masses with another average shooter (AKA the same game as always), rather than produce something that’s fun and is a worthwhile experience. Brothers in Arms was an example of this, but sadly it was put away on a shelf. I am still glad that ArmA exists, cause it requieres some actual thought put into the game.

A Plinkett review ( in my not so humble opinion) requires the movie to be successful or anticipated but highly disappointing in one way or another, with the dashed hopes of movie goers clearly being felt round the world. Like ‘Baby’s Day Out’ or ‘Cop Dog’.

    it’s true that we see a lot of safe movies and games these days that do really well in the box office etc., but I think we have to remember, that back in the day not as many movies or games came out as frequently as they do now. I don’t mind if the unwashed masses get their shallow media gruel, as long as they keep making “niche” movies like Drive, Edge of Tomorrow and Dredd to satisfy people who watch movies as art or stimulation of the heart and mind as well as the adrenal glands.
    Maybe studios were wrong to put all of their faith into Auetuer Directors, but they were also wrong to reign in all of the power to the studios.

  • Charon

    I can see why you feel disappointed, but have to disagree with your “unwillingness to learn the mechanics of the game” comment. From what I’ve gathered, myself, Jack and Rich are gamers of the “Golden Age” variety. Video games were a completely different beast for our generation, I won’t even go into the vast technological or artistic variances. With the distinction of aesthetics aside, having the basic mechanics be somewhat intuitive was a plus in its’ own right. When you think about the fact that someone took the time to just to beat the LJN Beetlejuice game on the NES – as in, devoted more than the actual run-through time that it took him to eventually beat that impossibly cheap and buggy game – one begins to see that Titanfall is oopy-goopy, video gaga, in that respect. In Titanfall, you can glean the learning curve in a few hours, and get bored while watching mechs ‘splode each other.

    Honestly, the last good FPS was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, especially on Legendary difficulty. That game started all this grim-dark, action-jackson, bland-palette swapping gun porn without the intention of doing so. How? What “demographic” is asking for this time-travelling, paramilitary ego stroke-job that is the contemporary shooter genre?

    Do you even Medal of Honor on PS1, bro?

    Rich I loved the shit out of Mass Effect. Loved it to every last moment before the Deus Ex Machina Star Child ending followed by that senseless Luddite delusion that the writers thought awe inspiring. I agree with you after all that investment through two other games that hasty shit show sucked hard. Especially after EA comes along afterward to go though our pockets with that buy our dlc’s message at the end. It sucked. It was easily the most disappointing thing in gaming to watch what was once an RPG powerhouse (Bioware) turned into another dead generic cog in the assembly line production empire of EA. I can’t empathise enough about how hard It sucked after easily hundreds of hours sunk into characters of previous installments.

    But you know what, I stopped talking about it months ago. Time to move on Rich. There’s a whole world of new things to be disappointed by.

  • NotRickBerman

    I know that feel.

  • Stupid Wizard

    I thought the people on that Machinima video were lying about the Na’vi fleshlight. To quote Prometheus “We were wrong, we were so wrong”

  • Stupid Wizard

    I’ve played Witcher 2 and I like Triss’ character and her tits aren’t the reason why. However Elizabeth I think is a better written female character. She’s a tough strong character, not a love interest, not their for fan service, and has an arc. Triss is almost the opposite for me at least. Maybe it’s different The Witcher books but who gives a fuck because the game has tits.

  • Stupid Wizard

    Get ready for a fucking shit storm. I can’t stand Jon Tron. He seems like a nice and all but he doesn’t do what people Nostalgia Critic, AVGN, Plinkett, or any other famous character critic does is analyze. He doesn’t go that deep into reviewing a movie or a game and does minor research when he does research. And I can’t stand his New York accent or his Jay Bauman wannabe beard.

  • Percy Gryce

    I’m back, bitches. So I go away for a couple of weeks and find that all hell has broken loose. The Eugenics War has broken out. New sets are being restored in dubious fashion. And, worst of all, Rich Evans is dead.

    Now I know there hasn’t been a public announcement or anything, but all the signs are there. He was absent from the last HITB. He looked almost lifeless in this episode of PreRec. There was that strange pixelization over his left shoulder (theories vary on that one, but I think the pixels hid Mike’s hands working Rich’s dead corpse like a puppet). And the clincher was the message that RLM left front and center:

    “is ded”

    Well, just see for yourself:

  • ModernDayMinstrel

    OHHHHH MY GOOOOOOD

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Those first two words are supposed to be “I’m curious”. I must be drunk without drinking anything. It’s probably osmosis from Mike’s perma-buzzed state.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Also, I just passed the 3000 comment milestone on RLM [without me realizing it until after the fact]. My 3000th comment was a Monty Python reference. I’m okay with that.

  • http://www.codeofthewild.com/ SeanJJordan

    Pre-Rec is starting to find its footing, and it’s nice to see an episode where there’s a natural end instead of a forced one. It’s also nice to see a game featured that people have heard of, though I’m a little worried about the next episode featuring Sonic the Hedgehog. (Is there really anything left to say about that game?)

    It’s also nice to actually hear what Rich and Jack are looking for in games – this helps to qualify their reactions a bit. (In HITB, for instance, we know a lot about what Mike and Jay are looking for in movies, so it makes their recommendations more relevant since they have context).

    I still think it’d be a good idea to feature two games: either a popular one and a less popular one, or two titles that are similar, but which have different approaches. (Titanfall and Mass Effect would have made a great pairing here since both are sci-fi action games with RPG progression elements, but could not be more different in execution.)

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    A married couple is lying in bed one night. The wife is curled up, ready to go to sleep, and the husband turns his bed lamp on to read a book. As he’s reading, he periodically reaches over to his wife and fondles her special bits. He does this a few times, but only for a very short interval before returning to read his book. The wife gradually becomes more and more aroused and, assuming that her husband is seeking some encouragement before going further, gets up and starts stripping in front of him.

    The husband is confused and asks, Why are you taking off your clothes? His wife replies, You were rubbing me downtown. I thought it was foreplay. The husband says, No, not at all. His wife asks angrily, Well, what the hell were you doing then? I was just wetting my fingers so I could turn the pages in my book.

  • mk741

    There’s plenty of other problems with ME3 besides the ending.

    Namely the poorly written narrative/ dialogue, monotonous side quests, numerous instances of sterile, streamlined gameplay (see the COD-inspired turret sections/ “fight” with the Reaper), and abandoning the already-streamlined mechanic of “choice” or consequence to the player’s actions (again, this goes beyond the ending, as your choices from ME1/2 are rendered obsolete in 3).

    There’s also the major failure in attempting to actually characterize the Shepard character into something more than a “Letz beet the bad guyz” speech machine/ empty muscle bound power-fantasy for the player. The embarrassingly mawkish/ hamfisted scenes of Bioware attempting to depict post-traumatic stress disorder with Shep will always haunt me.

    With streamlined Gears gameplay, progressively dumbed down RPG mechanics, and a dialogue system that destroyed any notion of ambiguity/ tension/ consequence, Mass Effect’s real strengths stemmed from its universe and interestingly-written characters of numerous alien races (this goes for all 3 games).

    However ME3 saw fit to shit the bed in all of the above and more (bad writing being the major factor).

    The Shepard trilogy (not just the dunce-cap wearing ME3) deserves a real Plinkett retrospective to go over its highs, lows, and failures.

    Hmmm…I’m not sure you can criticize his knowledge of gaming. He’s clearly been an avid fan since a he was young kid and and it shows in his videos. He’s comparable to the RLM guys in that he prefers quality over quantity and he talks about aspects of gaming that used to go over my head. His passion for gaming is comparable to Mike and Jay’s for film. He also does a great job of getting his point across thru metaphorical skits as opposed to straight up saying it. I don’t care much for Game Grumps JonTron, but JonTronShow JonTron is the shizz. And he’s from California so idk what you mean about the accent.

    While I like Nostaglia Critic he’s prone to going a little overboard and occasionally be hypocritical. He’ll blast a film for doing one thing, and complain for lack of that same thing in another film just to pad his video. NC is by faaaaaaaar at his best in his Editorials when he’s calm and 10 times more articulate, but overall he’s my backup when I’ve OD’d on my usuals. Interestingly enough NC was JonTron’s biggest influence but I digress. New HitB this later today so I have to go cancel all my plans.

    I have mixed feelings about Titanfall. On the one hand, I’m not fan of Multiplayer modern FPS games. But on the other, I can see how fans of this genre would really love this game. I mean, it took an established fun-thing and added cool bits.

    It’s almost the complete opposite, for me, than Bioshock Infinite. There’s a fun-thing I was all really into and then they removed all the cool bits.

    What I’m saying is that Titanfall did for the modern FPS what I was hoping Infinite would’ve done for Bioshock.

    They would give up so fast on Super Meat Boy and blame it on bad mechanics. But it’s ok bc they’ll like the art design.

  • Jordan Santacruz

    Lets be clear, Titanfall has massive problems and its hard to argue with your stance on color and character design, but how can you critique a game with mobility as one of the biggest draws and you only figure out the jump button half way through your review? Did you take the time to play the tutorial? It feels like you knew exactly what you wanted to say about the game before turning the Xbone on, and that doesn’t make for an entertaining video, it makes you look like an asshole.

  • Thanatos2k

    Honesty means telling the truth. Do you think they’re not telling the truth?

    Elaborate on your mysterious definition of honesty.

  • Tegiminis

    Being inexperienced does not make somebody honest.

  • Thanatos2k

    It does. They don’t know how to lie about stuff like this.

  • Tegiminis

    Still not what honesty means, and if you genuinely think that “inexperience = honesty” then you are naive.

    Does that mean the main RLM reviews are not honest, because they have a lot of experience with movies?

  • Mangalores

    multiplayer shooter feels like ambush, ambush, ambush? Well, yes, the thing is the skill you aquire is how to avoid ambushes and how to create ambushes faster than the opposition.

    The idea it needs no skill is a bit laughable. That is _the_ skill. At the start you run around like a headless chicken and get shot in the back, in the end you know how to run so you are the guy showing up in someone’s rear and force most opposition to take you head on and you get your mano a mano fights.

    It’s a bit of a problem to review multiplayer games like other games. As Rich points out himself, they simply work entirely different and appeal to a different interest. I certainly don’t play any MP for the same reason I do play SP which is mostly about what Rich is interested in, .

    I’m with Rich on this; I play a game primarily for the single-player because I like to immerse myself in a good story, and just enjoy playing at my own pace. If that all works out fine, then I’ll venture onto multiplayer and get pissed the fuck off for the rest of the experience. More often than not, multiplayer quickly becomes a frustrating monotony.

    The best DLC wasn’t even about Shepard at all, either. It was the Omega DLC, and that was a part two for a comic book.

    I agree that the turret stuff was stupid. I can order my squad to blow stuff up with dark energy, fire, electricity, and cryonics, but I guess it’s better to shoot the enemy with bigger bullets. I guess it’s more efficient than all those interesting ways (it’s not). Overall, it does feel like a rushed game. The final mission of that game has the worst aesthetic, which is only magnified by the visual creativity (as far as a hallway shooter can be) of Rannoch, Tuchunka, and Menae.

    Really, it’s just the Return of the Jedi to me. By no stretch of the imagination is it anywhere near as bad as the Star Wars prequels, it’s just that it’s too stuffed with too many things that happen in it.

    Jake, my man! The song is titled ‘Do or Die’ by Stuart Bogie.

    You can thank @tissn:disqus for posting it in these comments, who himself found it in the comments on the YouTube video.

    I don’t like Titanfall; it’s honestly just Call of Duty with mechs and
    parkour right down to graphics and animations. If you want a good first
    person shooter, then you can never go wrong with say Team Fortress 2 or
    better yet Unreal Tournament. Especially since Unreal Tournament 4 is
    free (not free to play) and is being developed almost entirely by the
    modding community.

    I just got done listening to the whole song, awesome! Thanks for your help Mitchell and kudos to Daniel.

    Maybe you guys should review the “Big Names” first, you know:
    Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Batman (Yes, again – It was a shame that gamestation was cancelled)…

    Those reviews would generate more views and more viewers.
    Those viewers, in turn, would get acquainted with your style and taste, developing “trust” in your reviews, and then would come back to see what you have to say about the new games.

    Presently, as a gamer and a viewer, I have this connundrum:

    – I don’t know the game
    – I don’t know what you think about the games I played
    – Thus, I don’t know what to make of your reviews

    Half in the bag, I think, and the following RLM programs benefited from the Plinkett Reviews – not only in numbers, but also in content. People already expected the opinions to come from a certain place – and things evolved naturally from there.

    I don’t know, it’s my two cents.

    Anyway, I’ll keep watching.
    Good luck and lots of success, Jack and Rich!

  • Lance barfman

    Is it,sad,or karma…that the best RLM program has become ‘game station 3.0′. ie Jack & Rich’s Pre-Rec. no hack frauds here. Mike / Jay.., take note!!!

  • Gallen Dugall

    I agree with Rich, multiplayer games are not generally fun, however if you’ve got a group to game with then multiplayer games can be fun.
    I also agree with Rich about Mass Effect. Aside from the dumbed down gameplay it was pretty clear they didn’t have any idea what to do with the story beyond ramp, ramp, ramp… um, kill everyone off.

  • Itsthisguylol

    Pre-Rec is shaping up to be really good. I have the same tastes in games as Rich, so I agree with all of his feedback.

  • Stef Sarch

    What was the Game Station 1.0 even?

  • Old Ben

    When are you guys going make Jay play Night Trap?
