  • ModernDayMinstrel

    Nice production in this one.

  • SkaMP

    FTL YEAAAAAH!

  • ohseanofnoise

    How much is the Bug Porn today?!

  • SkaMP

    Rich ‘Michael’ Evans

  • You know if I had just clicked on “Comments” as soon as I saw this vid was up I coulda gotten first…

  • SkaMP

    So it’s the puzzle element of Super Time Force Ultra that Jack doesn’t like.

  • Sébastien St-Pierre Robert

    I want to see Rich jerking off Jack jerking off Mike jerking off Jay jerking off Josh jerking off Rich, and all of them having their ecstasy at the same time.

  • Wicked Ricky

    This is the new Masterpiece Theater. By that I mean people talking seriously about works that I couldn’t give a shit less about.

  • Bahareh Khosravi

    Talk about The Evil Within and how it’s the most disappointing thing since my son.

  • rizla

    oh come on, tie fighter is a classic, and jack doesn’t even heard about it? and it’s not complicated at all. throttle, shield, targeting are the only things you should care about (and switching between the weapons of course). it has nothing to do with microsoft flight simulator. for example you can’t crash, your ship flies itself automatically. what kind of simulator is that?

    it’s an awesome game with awesome action and story. it’s a shame lucasarts never made another simulator again after x-wing alliance.

  • SkaMP

    FTL is like going on a magical space adventure 😀

  • Mutantstylez

    What does “Produced by Jessi Nakles” mean? Did she let you edit the video on her computer or something?

  • Sully

    Don’t feel bad, Rich. I’m still playing GTA5 on PS3 as well.

  • Charisma

    This video looks BORING

  • YOU FUCKS

    Admit it, we’re all here to see what they said for TIE Fighter.

  • Robby

    I really like the vibe of Pre-Rec. It’s very different from the other review shows here. Kinda surprised that RIch has been playing GTA V since he decries the big dumb dark gaming future we’re all living in.

  • playdude92 .

    All PreRec episodes are edited with the joy of someone who just found out about all the stuff you can do with editing software. It has a surprisingly retro vibe.

    Also I know Rich doesn´t do Multiplayer but GTA 5 has literally one of the best Multiplayer modes ever.

  • Robby

    I’m glad you guys didn’t didn’t about things you didn’t like.

  • Mike’s Palpatine destroys whoever did the voice for that game…

  • Michael Tuthill

    Crusader Kings II. Try it.

  • Do you also write snarky letters to your local PBS station telling them as much?

  • Michael Tuthill

    You can crash into other ships and splode if you play it with that setting on.

  • Michael Tuthill

    TIE Defender should have won the Empire the war.

  • Wicked Ricky

    No. I feel better when I bitch on the internet.

  • Cacktowl

    Replayability and changing circumstances?

    Try L4D2 multiplayer…or the new “Evolve”, which i have not tried out myself yet.

  • You guys should do a making-of video of your set/prop making skills.

  • You need to channel your inner-crotchety old man. Typing up a letter and mailing it the old-fashioned way brings a sense of satisfaction one simply cannot get on a webzone.

  • Super Hans

    Are they high in this video?

  • rizla

    it rarely happens tho.

  • There’s more and more pixelated props popping up in the productions!

  • This weeks comment brought to you by the letter “P”.

  • Palpatine

    I know right?

  • humdiblifier

    Tie fighter looks a lot like Wing Commander, which is a wonderful thing. The Privateer spin-off and Wing Commander 3 are still two of my favorite games of all time.

    Privateer is an open-world experience in the WC universe and if you go out of your way to be a bastard you’re gonna have a great time. Wing Commander 3 is still one of the best cinematic experiences any game can offer while still having really enjoyable gameplay and being a Star Wars fan can elevate the experience even more.

  • Michael

    I played TIE Fighter way too much one summer in the 90’s. One time I collided with another ship and IRL instinctively threw my hands ups to protect my face. I decided I had to quit playing it at that point.

  • Mr. R

    Yeah it’s at 6:40

    I miss Star Wars sims, RIP Lucasarts

  • onenil

    IIRC, the TIE Defender came too late in the war to make a difference, kind of like how jet fighters came too late in WWII for the Nazis.

  • fred

    Something about their background music reminds me of the orgy from Eyes Wide Shut.

  • X-wing and Tie Fighter were insanely awesome. I miss that series.

  • BlowingBubbles

    To quote Tychus Findlay: “Hell…. It’s about time.”

  • its called bleach

    oh my jizz new rlm content

  • Bhazor

    I tried to like FTL. I really really did. I’ve wanted a simplified Star Trek: Bridge Commander for years. But I just can’t make myself enjoy it. The reason being is how fast it ran out of new stuff. After about three or four hours I was just getting the same random encounters over and over. By my fourth attempt I had memorised every single event and how to deal with most enemy ship types. The core combat is still fantastic it just really really really needs more content.

  • Bhazor

    Teleglitch is amazing. Genuinely one of the tensest games I’ve played in a while. Genuinely scary in places, some enemies are just so tough and appear with little warning that the default emotion for the game is buttock clenched terror. The closest I can liken it to is a rogue lite Hotline Miami.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I’ll be honest. I kinda want that instruction sheet mounted on my wall. That thing was insane.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    You’re always first in my book, Mr. Dredd. You. Are. The. Law.

  • El_Runko

    Feedly told me there was a new video on RLM and my heart leaped with joy as I was certain it was a HitB about The Hobbit.

    This is good too though.

    But seriously, you’ll review The Hobbit, right? RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT?

  • Daniel

    No X-COM Rich!? We want X-COM!

  • My ex wife

    Fidelio.

  • Vengeful Eagle

    Hey Rich, you looking forward to Chaos Reborn?

  • Jason

    What I got from this is that RNG is a tool of capitalist oppression and rogue-likes are the robber barons of the video game world, stealing all the resources from the grinder class. We should demand equal loot for gamers of all skill levels! This can only be achieved through a dictatorship of the n00b!
    Casuals of the world, unite!

  • pp

    It’s got my seal approval.

  • fskn

    Edited in record time.

  • fskn

    They have to talk about Smeeeeuugh again, so.

  • pp

    God I just love that outro track!

  • HeySwanSong

    Mannn are these hackenfraudens ever gonna release a new BoTW?

  • That’ll be about tree fiddy.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Variable-interval reinforcement… it has worked for lotteries since the times of the Roman Empire, even before that.

    Also, honestly, watching people play video games IS boring. Not just FTL, any game. It’s also why so many of us dislike recent action scenes that feel like watching someone else play a video game. Which is why people enjoy the streams more for the conversations, than for the actual gaming.

  • Nathan Evans

    No interesting new releases? No interesting new releases? Clearly you guys aren’t Game of Thrones fan otherwise you’d be reviewing the Telltale game that they just released…

  • DanceOfBirther

    You should hire him as your singing double, like when Michael Jackson had Kipp Lennon sing on The Simpsons.

  • memory vision dark crystal twa

    darren aronofsky dug GTA 4. Also I’d love to see who wins that super mario vs. Packard Captain fight; secret: there’s a beanstalk behind Jack

  • unstoppablefarce

    I’d like to see Rich’s girlfriend.

  • memory vision dark crystal twa

    IKR, right?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Press X to experience the illusion of meaningful choices.

  • Nathan Evans

    Oh, sorry… I just saw the episode and realized that you filmed it like 3 weeks ago… but, yeah… you should play the Game of Thrones telltale game…

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    GTA IV was so boring Rich saying it was won’t even cause a bombardment of nerd rage, that’s f’n boring.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Ofc he hasn’t heard about it-it’s not a top down twin stick arcade-y shooter with pixel art.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I would post the “I CAN’T STOP CUMMING” clip but I can’t. Disqus, you have made an enemy. Quick let’s start a hashtag trend on twitter that will lead to a lot of arguing with idiots and censorship #DisqusGate

  • Wizard Phoenix

    *Fiance.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    Rich is so hardcore he installed Tie Fighter on his Apple2. Its 346 floppies and took him six weeks to install.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    that would be like beating a dead horse.not to mention neither of them like horror games in the first place so chances they would ever pick it for a review are slim to none.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I cum for PreRec…with blood and pain.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I know many of us are Star Wars fans. Does anyone besides me and Andrew play any of them?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Well at least I can’t post an Anti-Christ gif.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    *right hand.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    *His left handed

  • Koszper Gábor

    Try the board game Space Alert.

  • Koszper Gábor

    Me, too. And it’s a shame that it wasn’t even revived and we only got the originals ported to new OSs.

  • Palpatine

    Did he give his fiance the Heart of the Ocean diamond as a pre-wedding gift?

  • Koszper Gábor

    It’s a simulator by today’s standards. Also, Jack doesn’t have that many buttons.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    RLM’s Mike Stoklasa “the games you two are always playing look like the blueprints to a house.”

  • BlowingBubbles

    Hey, at least you’ve moved past it like an adult. Oh… wait…

  • dollar store cashier wife

    rlm is selling out for t-shirts part 2:lollapalooza

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I was joking. I know it’s problem with Disqus as whole with many sites and I have to deal with it.

  • unstoppablefarce

    HE GOES WITH MEN???!???!

  • Thanatos2k

    TIE FIGHTER. I knew it immediately on seeing that screenshot. Gog getting Tie Fighter to work properly is one of the best things to happen this year.

    One of the best Star Wars games by far. And it’s not even about the simulation part – the story is pretty damn good.

  • Guest

    Jedi Academy multiplayer and the Kotor’s, i keep coming back to them.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I’d also add battlefront,republic commando and empire at war.

    great gaems

  • With apologies to Jessi, fuck Pre Rec. I’ve got serious blue balls for BOTW.

  • And I, for one, welcome our new exclusively text-based commenting system.

  • Thanatos2k

    Don’t listen to people on streams who say something looks boring. Watching people playing video games is usually boring no matter what they’re playing.

  • Spock Interrupted

    Oddly enough, i’ve never tried them.
    *writing down recomendations*
    🙂

  • Thanatos2k

    Also Destiny.

  • Thanatos2k

    You know how you can activate the hyperdrive with certain ships and that’s how you end missions? Well you can also hyperjump right into other ships if someone randomly gets in your path after you’ve started it, instantly killing you and them.

    I’ve had it jump through a Star Destroyer before, killing it.

  • Thanatos2k

    Screw Tie Defenders, the Missile Boats were the way. You could destroy like 2 Mon Calimari Cruisers yourself with the heavy bombs.

  • Thanatos2k

    The stuff in the background is multiplying….

  • Thanatos2k

    It doesn’t have to be RNGs all the time. MMOs are certified Skinner Boxes as well.

    Turns out people are more than happy to grind for consistent rewards.

  • ikdks

    I got Civilization: Revolution for ps3, and I hated it. I’ve been playing it for six years.

    Eventually I smashed it with a hammer. Then I bought another one.

  • Thanatos2k

    Jedi Knight 2 is still the best Star Wars game.

  • My ex wife

    Jay hates us so much now, he hasn’t even given us the vid on here to spam hate speech under.

  • My ex wife

    Poor Elias, she was bonkers.

  • My ex wife

    Maybe he saved time and just threw it stright into the north atlantic ocean.

  • Ernest Seven of Borg Nine

    Oh man, I loved that game. I played it to death on the 360.

  • New avatar?

  • Put a Santa hat on the bottle of bleach.

  • Hmm, does Mr. Domo know?

  • HUmanBeing

    I’m sure the video review will be a trainwreck, but you have got to play Dragon Age Inquisition. It’s GOTY 2014.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Nice joke.The last time Bioware made something GOTY tier was all the way back in Kotor days.

  • Bayonetta 2 has a higher metacritic than Dragon Age. What makes DAI GOTY 2014, the fact it was declared so at the VGAs? Pfft

  • I guess that would explain the ridiculous popularity of Twitch and the billions of views gamers are getting on YouTube. Wait… what?

  • DanceOfBirther

    Ever seen someone play a Kinect game?

  • DanceOfBirther

    I still play that at least once a year.

  • I think he mentioned a bunch of other stuff, too. Like the fact everything is so distracting on screen that it becomes hard to tell what the fuck is going on, which kinda makes a game with 1 hit kills rather frustrating. I mean, even bullet hell shoot-em ups usually have a sense of order about them (bright, distinct bullets that don’t resemble power-ups, a single player ship rather than duplicates flying all over the place, etc).

  • In The Court Of The Evans King

    “[…]The core combat is still fantastic it just really really really needs more content.”

    Don’t get me wrong, but, it seems to me that you liked the game. You just didn’t adore it as Rich and Jack did.

  • HUmanBeing

    It’s the best RPG in the Bioware mold. If you liked KOTOR, it’s better than that.

  • SkaMP

    I must disagree on that, I very much like watching them play games, especially! FTL 🙂
    Of course the games are only a part of the streams and the random conversations and the game-commentary by Richevans&Co is what elevates the RLM streams above other streams.

  • Excellent use of the hyphenated phrasal adjective in the phrase “variable-interval reinforcement.”

  • DanceOfBirther

    But why wouldn’t you want to post a picture of Sam Neil?

  • SkaMP

    Yeah I thought about commenting on that as well but eventually didn’t, but I suppose I might as well now: Jack is becoming an old man.

    ahw that sounds mean, I guess he’s actually pretty right about it, there does seem a shit tonne of crap on screen at certain moments. yet still.. Jack ‘old man’ Packard professional hack fraud 😛

  • RLMkeepitup

    With the royalties Rich is going to get on voice work for Space Cop the video game, he’s not gonna need a ps3 anymore.

  • SkaMP

    I agree with your santa hat initiative.

  • bassbait

    Super Star Wars, Rogue Squadron, Shadows of the Empire, and Episode 1 Pod Racer too. Yea that’s right, a prequel game is decent!!! Actually no it isn’t but it’s hard as fuck and that’s all it takes to make me want to play it.

  • RLMkeepitup

    Liberate tu tu me

  • Bahareh Khosravi

    Yes my dear fellow! My avatar changes with my facebook picture. because I’m too lazy to create an individual disqus account. I see there are some festivities going on in your charming visage!

  • SkaMP

    GTA 2 still best tho

  • Palpatine
  • Bahareh Khosravi

    I would have thought fans of horror movies would like horror games. Although Evil Within is more action than horror methinks.

  • SkaMP

    Well Jay is the real Horror movie buff, from what I’ve heard Rich and Jack not so much.

  • Mark Bisone

    Well ,there goes another desperate outlet for my creativity. I guess I’ll have to resort to battle raps.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I’ve never played a video game in my life. (Well, does Pong count? Technically, yes it does.)

    I haven’t played many video games at all in my very long life.

    But, I was feeling festive tonight.

    Whaddaya thinks?

  • Shakes_McQueen

    I basically watch Pre-Rec these days, just to see what new, critically well received game they will off-handedly dismiss next.

    Also, while GTA IV had a (slightly) more serious story than previous GTA games, if all you’re doing is driving around and punching people anyway, it’s no different than GTA V. The heist missions are what make GTA V fun.

  • DickNeutral

    Hey guys. Glad to see you’re playing Crypt of the Necrodancer. I do hope at least Jack likes it. I’m not sure if it’s Rich’s thing, but it seems up Jack’s alley, it’s different, and at the least, it has great music. Look forward to the next episode!

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Jay doesn’t hate *us*.

    He hates what *us* have done.

    #Asterisks,’CauseIDidn’tDoAnyOfIt

  • DickNeutral

    For whatever reason, even when I was a little kid, I’ve probably enjoyed watching people play games more than playing them.

  • Shakes_McQueen

    Mass Effect 2 was great. So was Dragon Age Origins.

    I’ve finished Dragon Age: Inquisition, and I would indeed say it’s quite possibly my favourite Bioware RPG since KOTOR. And I say that as someone who thought Dragon Age 2 was massively disappointing.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Necrodancer? Really?

    I kinda dig that. Instead of romancing Death, you just kinda meet Death in a club, buy it one drink, and decide Death ain’t for you. But, with Disco!

  • Flaw Filial

    It’s the one area in which I thrive.

  • bassbait

    Crypt of the Necrodancer looks really lame to me, and I’ve seen extensive gameplay of it. I’m hoping they don’t like it but if they do I’ll hear them out granted that there’s always something I could be missing.

  • Just in time. I wish to cover my ugly fat body.

  • BlowingBubbles

    Bioware is owned by EA Games these days. They’re the Michael Bay of the video game world. All style, no substance. Their next game, EXPLOSION-FUCK:
    The DLC Cash Shop Adventure
    is going to be great though.

  • valou999

    Tie Fighter!! I still have the original release and still play it once in a while. One of my favorite game of all time and easily one of the best space flight sim ever made. It’s pretty hard too, the AI is pretty smart on the tougher missions. Having an actually joystick really *really* helps too.

    Speaking of old timey games, I’m currently playing Planescape Torment. So far, pretty awesome crpg like you don’t see anymore (and I *really* deplore that, everything has to be super fast-paced action in RPGs nowadays – stupid ADD kids…). Not exactly as combat focused as, say, Baldur’s Gate, but if you really enjoy a good, intriguing story it’s a must play!

  • Palpatine

    I think someone at CNN saw the dinosaur BotW and made this list of the worst dinosaur movies of the 90’s:

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/10/showbiz/90s-dinosaur-movies/index.html?hpt=hp_bn9

  • Michael Collins

    OK, definitely going to give FTL a try next time it’s on sale.
    Recently been playing some co-op games with my friends, Payday the Heist, Payday 2, L4D2, GodMode and Splinter Cell Blacklist, all bought super cheap on steam.

    PC ftw.

  • Johnny Orfei

    I love Tie fighter. Aww man. I think playing those games in the 90s is
    what got me so excited about Episode I coming out. The story was great
    in this game…. so by theory…Episode I should be epic (me thought).
    How many times I watched Episode I on that quicktime player.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I have a Body Rap just in case, but I don’t have rhythm like Colin does.

    Damn Canadians.

  • tOmy`

    Man, Tie Fighter… That game is the bomb. For those who (unfortunately) don’t know this gem, I feel like I should add to the mayhem of possibilities and features within the game, that Rich didn’t mention:

    * Torpedos, bombs, missiles – as far as I remember, they also have different features themselves.
    * You can chose which mission you do next
    * You can “walk” through different rooms in the home base, that serve as a “menu”.
    * You don’t get to fly in Tie Fighters only. You get to Tie Bombers, Tie Interceptors and few more.
    * Great use of a comlink in the ship
    * Bonus missions, including “flying school”
    * Promotions (including special order tattoos that Emperor himself burns on your skin with lightening)
    * Databse
    * Great menu in missions
    * For the sake of difficulty (kinda odd, that Rich didn’t mention it) you can set your ammo to never expire and have an invulnerabilty – this is not a cheat per se, as it is a normal option + trust me: That game can get hard even with these settings on.
    * It is not all just “blow them up”, you have all sorts of different missions, that have superb twists thanks to enemy ships jumping from the hyperspace
    * If I remember correctly, it has a demo manager and proper replay, where you can watch all enemy ships and what they do at any point of the game
    * Thrawn is in. Thrawn.

    I am pretty sure I forgot something, because this game features a lot of great stuff. I cannot say how much time I spent playing it, but it was certainly one of those games that caught me and didn’t let me go till my eyes bled.

    Lucasart at it’s finest imo.

  • tOmy`

    And seeing how people comment on the good old games they are currently playing, here is my list of the classics that I play more than often (or at the moment):

    * Morrowind (currently trying to finish the game for all classes)
    * Half Life (because, man, this game will never get old)
    * Unreal Tournament 99 (playing for past 15 years on the most “progaming” level you can have in this old game with this small, yet alive, community)
    * Transport Tycoon Deluxe + Roller Coaster Tycoon with add-ons

  • memory vision dark crystal twa

    Oh, so The Emperor was just burning dick tattoos onto Luke. Vader you Cheetos TM vacuum

  • memory vision dark crystal twa

    yeah my wrists allow nothing

  • NicholasRibcage

    Well, you’re from the 19th century, so of course you do.

  • NicholasRibcage

    What’s wrong with your face?

  • NicholasRibcage

    No it doesn’t.

  • El_Runko

    SHMAUUUUUUUGGGHHHHH

  • RLMkeepitup

    I enjoyed gta 4 more since the city was more interesting and there wasn’t an economy to deal with in multiplayer. But I agree with your point they are basically the same game.

  • RLMkeepitup

    They get CNN on the death star yet Palpy?

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I remember playing the demo of a very bad SW game called Rebel Assault. It was back from when CD-Roms were a new thing. The game was all pre-rendered 3d graphics, nice to look at (back then) but the gameplay was poop. The one good thing, in that same disc they included a demo for Sam and Max: Hit the Road, that’s how I discovered my favorite adventure game.

  • Palpatine

    Yeah, but we told them it was a “research station” and that the superlaser was a “gravity beam” used for “moving” planets.

  • Ritchie Martin

    It’s pretty impressive that Rich can learn to play FTL and Tie Fighter properly, but not Titanfall or Sonic the Hedgehog

  • RLMkeepitup

    Pretty sure he could learn any game, maybe the latter two he found frustrating and not worth the investment? These aren’t reviews either, just discussions, so you’re free to disagree.. if you like the other games play them and enjoy.

  • Archfiend_Baramos

    I only watch the ones that are moderately funny, like Game Grumps. I’m a connoisseur!

  • Archfiend_Baramos

  • jnywest

    Ya, tie fighter is one of the best. A sequel to X-wing, of course. A great game too but a bit slow at the start and with a broken difficulty curve. Tie fighter was a bit “easier” than X-wing in my opinion, and a little more fun because your are an “evil” tie fighter pilot.

    Reviews are just “opinions” no matter what popular person makes them. I can disagree with them entirely. The world says “Seiken Densetsu 2” (aka “Secret of Mana”) is a masterpiece. But its color explosion like grafic makes my eyes bleed. Music is also not that “refined”. And the worst of all it is not a true second chapter of Seiken Densetsu 1. More a alternative universe or a reset of the story. (huge middlefinger for the fans of game 1) How could they give such a game an A rating? Whats Chrono Trigger than? Triple S? See,that’s my “review”. My opinion. But of course you are free to disagree. I’m not god. And I don’t think any review on this earth is made by his allmightyness 😉

    Zelda – A Link to the Past. Chrono Trigger, Freespace 2. Red Alert (Best Stalin actor ever!) Mario Kart 64 (still the best battle mode). Age of Empires II, Civilization II. For masochists: Tetris…

    download Civ II for free (its legal) from the internet (around 20mb). Create your own map with huge continents, catch as much world wonders as you can and build up your empire. Than conquer the world with your armada even 50 Nukes cannot wipe out. CivIV is also great but not that stabil with much units on the map. And your people have huge problems with total war for centuries. I wonder why… 🙂

    Seriously, every gamer should know these games… “Tie Fighter” or “X-Wing vs Tie-Fighter”…also “Decent”

  • Crikey Mate Down Under Aussie

    Uhhhhh, give it up.

  • DarkFluffy

    Buy “Guild Wars 2”. Community is friendly and the events are fun. Story is epic, music is from Jeremy Soule (THE master!)- look on youtube for it to test hearing it. (type: “Guild Wars 2 ost”) You will also need no other games for the next 5-10 years. So it is a very good investment. But your PC should not be too old. At least from 2013 to run the game smoothly. World of Warcraft is an alternative and from what I have seen it is good…but Guild Wars 2 made it better in a lot of things. This could be important for you: many people are older than 18 in GW2. Some of them are even 50+. So you are not that alone with your age as you could asume 😉

  • BlowingBubbles

    I’ve never been clear on the idea behind Pre-Rec, so maybe someone who listens to all the streams can explain it to me. Is the goal to create a game-version of HitB where they review new game releases? If so, why are there Zelda 2/Sonic episodes? Is the goal just to explore video games as art, and their themes? If so, why not explore more thematic video games (rpgs, for example)? Is the goal just to get paid to play video games? If so, why not go full tilt and pick whatever will give you the most views? Or is it something else?

    All of these are fine, it’s your show do what you want, I’m just saying I don’t understand and can someone explain to me? I, as a viewer, need this information for entertainment purposes.

    Bahumbug? Is that a Muslim thing?

    True story: The receptionist at the law firm I work for is a ditz. She speaks, and it sounds like a balloon leaking. Well, I passed her desk the other day, and she said to me (now, when you read this, be sure to imagine it squeaky and annoying), “Michael. Hello, Michael. Michael, isn’t December a wonderful time to be a Christian?” Not, Merry Christmas. Not Happy Holidays. Not, even, Don’t you just love this time of year? Nope. Balloon-girl had to shoot first in her own little imaginary War on Evangelicals. I thought it was a weird way to put it, so I replied, without missing a beat, “Yes, December is nice, but I converted to Islam when I was in college.” (I didn’t, but it was the first other faith that popped in my brain.)

    Shoodda seen her face! She changed expressions forty times in a couple of seconds. So hilarious! Later, when one of the co-workers from my part of the office passed her, she asked the girl if she was saved, told her it must be hard working with a non-believer, and offered to pray for us all. So now I’m the Christmas gossip where I work. Good times.

    I have an idea. Pre Rec’s fictional Rich and Jack work at a video game store and repair consoles. One day an old man ask them to fix a console of his. Rich and Jack see the opportunity to rip off the senile old man and barely work on it. Along the way they play games and review them as wacky stuff happens around them.

  • fred

    Except that independent games have the financial advantage over independent films.

  • thekubrick9000

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    That’s a great idea, but I didn’t mean anything that complex 😀

    Like my favorite ‘skit’ from HiTB was the Boyhood meltdown, where the movie was the best thing since the invention of fire. No complicated setups, no elaborate sets, but they presented a great viewpoint without having to explain anything or do anything complex. It was so good that it was worth watching over and over, even though they just chat it up afterwards.

    The streams are them playing games, but mostly talking about random bullshit, and answering questions from the fans. That’s what people tune in for. These Pre-Rec episodes are reviews of some of the games they play during the streams.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I think it can be explained by the same reasons he loves turn-based strategy over real-time strategy.

    I’ve been on a Syndicate (1993) binge plus the American Revolt expansion. Lets see how you deal with that game?

  • whip

    Your mistake was you questioned something RLM did, which no fanboy worth his salt would stand for.

    I understand your question. it seemed quite reasonable. This series is a bit hard to define. It does seem all over the place, and lacking in a decent theme.

    But this is the thing, RLM has gone viral, long ago. And developed a large fan base. At this point, they could whatever they want, and people would watch. You could film Rich Evan’s just living his daily routine, and people would rave and comment and defend it as the best thing ever.

    And I say this as a fan. I love these guys. But I can’t help but notice fanboy trends when I see them. The fact no one really took your question seriously, and the one guy who just basically mocked your comment in a passively aggressive insulting way? Big thumbs up.

    Typical of fanboy communities. When people like something, they defend it from anything and everything. Rationality goes right out the window.

    I didn’t think you were being insulting, or doing anythign wrong. You just asked some simple questions. And reasonable, decent questions.

    The sad fact is, there is not much rationality to be found here anymore 🙁

    Why not create a game that comes with its own controller/keypad system? I used to think it’d be too expensive, but after seeing the shit tons that parents are kicking out for games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity (myself being one of them), I’m beginning to think it wouldn’t be that crazy an idea.

    We just spent $100 on the latest Skylander game for my son and it came with a PS3 disc, a “portal” and a few toys. It could’ve very easily of been a flight simulator game and a specialized controller/keypad.

    I dunno. I think it’s possible, however unlikely.

    At some point, around the relase of Battlefront 2 in 2004-2005, Lucasarts became retarded.

    They stopped producing good games, more importantly they stopped producing PC games, and started spewing out nothing but casual games like Lego Star Wars and mobile garbage. Force Unleashed was decent, but far more games died behind the scenes in development hell. Talent started leaving. More games cancelled. More mobile games. And then they got shut down after they had become a shell of their former self. Basically, they believed the “PC gaming is dead” idiocy and well full on console/mobile development, like Crytek. And suffered for their stupidity.

    Seriously, all I want is a port of Tie Fighter with ONLY the graphics updated.

    Why do all of these movies need to put a face to the “Killer Computer?” Terminator Salvation did it, Resident Evil did it, even the Matrix did it.

    I think it’d be far creepier if the characters found Skynet’s source and it’s just a beige box sitting in a room, the whir of cooling fans the only noise in the room. It doesn’t have a face. It doesn’t speak. It would just be an unassuming box that decided the fate of mankind in a microsecond.

    It wouldn’t need to speak. It’s a machine. It doesn’t need to justify its actions to someone it sees as only a number in an unending string of calculations.

    Blah. This movie is getting dumber by the minute.

    “You’re gonna need to find some pants. I know you can do it, because you already did it.” Lol. “John keeps sending terminators, he’s lost his mind.” So at this point why not send the terminator back with a package of Johns little Johns and just program him to bust a nut in Sarah Conner. Clearly we saw terminators have junk in 1984, so is this a plot hole? Robot rape jokes, I love it. Another thing that bothers me at this point in the franchise is how its even possible to save John when time travel keeps happening and we’ve seen armies of terminators that could go back. Find another way to prevent Judgement day or gtfo.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    There is, and it won’t be on Justin.tv like last year. It will be with a different service.

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    Oh, let’s have it on Justin.tv again! It would just be a blank screen, so it’d be SUPER artsy.

  • fred

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Not as artsy as Horse Vomit.

  • My ex wife

    So I just watched Blade Runner at the cinema and it was really rather good.
    Nothing more to add, I just had nobody else to share it with.
    As you were. 🙂

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    That’ll do, pig. That’ll do.

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    I was going to ask this too… but I had already used my one reply-token.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    “Palpatine’s behind it all!”

  • Oh no! Now I truly know what ignorance is bliss means. Where is that styrofoam?

  • My ex wife

    The final cut, the best one in my opinion. I hope that was the correct answer.

  • DanceOfBirther

    It is, but “workprint” is the most interesting.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    “I hope that was the correct answer.”

    . . .

    Oh hey! Love your santa hat!

  • My ex wife

    I thought I’d go with the flock. 😀

    What was the right answer? If you say theatrical release your wrong. 😛

  • I think that the computerface in Matrix is forgivable. The machines are in living in a dependent state of humans. The Matrix is a machineworld and they have adapted to human means of communication. But I would have preferred that it would be faceless.

  • DanceOfBirther

    The quit even producing games before that. I almost want to say that Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II was the last thing that they produced in-house.

  • My ex wife

    I have it so I must have watched it altho probably 7 years ago now. I miss the unicorn and hate the voice over so I mostly just watched the latest version.

  • My ex wife

    Don’t worrie about that, if people talk to me then it’s almost like I actually exsist. /happyface

  • DanceOfBirther

    The workprint has the least amount of voice-over short of zero, a 2.21 aspect ratio, grease marks, some incomplete VFX shots, and much “looser” cuts, and takes not used in any other version.

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    Yea! That’s the spirit!
    Also, you misspelled both “worry” and “exist”. …You nerfherder.

  • My ex wife

    I’ll reacquaint myself with it over christmas.

  • My ex wife

    Rich dam it! The one time I don’t copy my whole comment into google for spell checking! I cannot be left to my own devices.

  • DanceOfBirther

    It even has a different Ladd Company Logo as I recall.

  • Firebrand

    I also was a bit put of by Super Time Force at first, mostly because I thought it was too easy (30 lives per level + the ability to control time). You gotta go for the extra stuff (glorbs, shards) for the system to really make sense, because with those you’re using the time mechanic strategically. The “looker” missions are hard as fuck though.

    I think it’s worth a play through just for the very humorous dialog and of course the incredible presentation. I laughed out loud several times during the game.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I tend to split it. I’ll watch the workprint halfway, stop, then put in the final cut for the latter half. It’s just a personal preference, and I like telling people that so I don’t sound like an asshole.

  • Thanatos2k

    Instead of sending terminators back in time to kill John Connor, why doesn’t Skynet just put more effort into killing him in the present? Like…I dunno….nuke him?

    Or if your time machine can teleport people wherever, teleport a terminator into his closet 2 days ago and kill him there. Having knowledge of the immediate past is FAR more useful than throwing them decades ago into unknown situations.

  • Noah R.

    Don’t we all…. What kind of Rich would you be enjoying?

    Not particularly. I can forgive a computer needing to use human language when promoted to communicate to a human, that makes sense, but a generic Stephen Hawking-like voice would’ve been better.

    For Terminator, why does Skynet need a face to speak. Why not have a Terminator do the speaking for it? Better yet, why not have several Terminators deliver the information via some twisted Greek Chorus-style of delivery?

    I dunno. There are more effective, scarier, more creative ways of doing things.

  • Some Twitch stream chats are just terrible. By that I mean almost every single one. There’s no culture, it’s just a bunch of morons writing moron things next to a stream. On the other extreme, sometimes you’ve got a stream chat where people are just chatting about random nonsense and noone seems to even pay attention to the stream. It’s bizarre. Kappa
    I don’t know about Pre-Rec, it’s been a long while since I could catch any of their streams live, and I think it should be pretty okay, but there seems to be some bizarre stuff going on there (calling someone “retarded” is something that will get you banned).

    The only really, really good stream chat I know of and I get the opportunity to partake in every now and then is Bro Team Pill’s stream chat. It’s pretty sick because only weird people watch him do things live (occasionally he just streams himself editing his videos for Youtube). It’s the type of chat where you’ll find people who’ll agree that Bioshock Infinite was an overrated piece of shit, there’s constantly some guy who mentions how he has been homeschooled, sometimes people share their stories where they killed some mugger in the desert, and there’s barely any regulations on what you can say. Also, noone posts any Twitch emotes, “china faces” (XD smileys and the like) are a bannable offense, and Sub Mode is never ever used. People are also pretty funny in the chat, and Bro Team himself has admitted the chat has become better than the actual stream.

    So, in gearing up for finally seeing the Avengers I’ve watched Captain America: the First Avenger Movie, Iron Man 2: Electric Boogaloo, and Thor: Too Hammered to Have a Subtitle. Iron Man 2 was pretty tight. My favorite part was when the bad guy said “By the way, all these machines are going to explode in 5 seconds, please don’t use your rockets and fly away.” My OTHER favorite part was when one of the machines started ticking down right next to Pepper Pothead and she just stands there going “Durr, PRETTY LIGHTS!”

  • the corpse of Andrew Thompson.

    i just cant care about comics… all i know is i would rather watch Marvel than D.C. and that the massive waste of money offends me. RLM cold make a a million Spacecops for the cost of a single modern franchise. and the only one i’m waiting for is Spacecop!

  • Ernest Seven of Borg Nine

    Honestly I don’t care much about Marvel films either, I’m only watching them all because this is the first time AFAIK that multiple movies have lead up to one great big movie. It’s usually the other way around…

    Its easier to convey a concept of a ruthless killing computer to general audience if you personalize it. Otherwise, you’d have to work out a creative way of making the scenes work on every level and it would still not be as accessible. Its called “the easy way”, and it usually comes with sitting in your chair with some coffea, making one-dimensional blue elves, overusing CGI and appealing to dumb moviegoing masses. “If you want your movie to make money, you gotta aim for average.”

  • Ernest Seven of Borg Nine

    I’m pretty sure Dracula, Frankenstein etc weren’t created with the intention of bringing all the characters together for one movie. Same for Gojira, Rodan, Ghidora etc. coming together for Destroy All Monsters. I’m not saying its the first time a bunch of characters have been brought together for one movie I’m saying its the first time whole movies were created for the (secondary) purpose of bringing them together for a specific future project.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    my god. it’s full of stars…

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    That’s why I said the “intent aforethought” thingie.

    Although, I’d quibble with “whole movies were created for the (secondary) purpose of bringing them together.” I’d let you go with “this is the first time they came up with the advertising gimmick of post-credit stingers to string a bunch of non-sequels into one (sorta) coherent thing,” or “this is the first time they stuck a bunch of characters no one really cared about into an IRON MAN sequel’s plot because they had something in mind for down the road,” or, “this is the first time they suckered an entire generation into thinking they’re fooking brilliant”, but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t sound quite as impressive as you think it should.

  • Ernest Seven of Borg Nine

    I think we have very contrasting ideological/cynical view of what The Avengers represents. I was under the impression that CapAm, Thor, and Iron Man 2 were written specifically to set up The Avengers. There’s the stingers and the extra characters but the point is it feels far more organic than just some shit they crammed in to sell a future movie “down the road”. Maybe i’m wrong but that was my idea from the get go and I haven’t seen anything in my recent viewing of the films that contradicts that.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    “Maybe I’m wrong” is just something you can automatically apply to any post I make. Heck, it’s kinda part of my nickname.

    But, yea, our views contrast. Verily. The three movies you mention have had to have been written to stand-alone as movies, I think, with the added extra, um, some would say “benefit” of including pieces of a larger puzzle. Though their intent was more predatory than anything we might be accustomed to, I, just me personally, refuse to give this much more credence than I would the early movie serials or the Bond films.

    Or the STAR WARS, LORD OF THE RINGS and POTTER things, if I want to get real itchy. THE AVENGERS is, and always has been, a larger incorporation of individual characters, so I don’t really consider it any more “separate” from its individual parts than other bits of literature that have been adapted for the movies. Marvel really hasn’t done anything, seen from that perspective, that wasn’t first popularized for the current generation by Lucas.

    Again, maybe.

This pales, btw, when compared to the first-person experience which is daunting and addictive. All in all a great value.

  • GeneralFailer

    I don’t think this bundle is anything near a good deal to Rich considering he not only owns a PS4, but also doesn’t really care about newer consoles. I’d personally consider even $30 for this bundle a bad deal if I owned a good gaming PC like he does.

  • Brack to the Future

    I suppose it might’ve been smarter to wait to get a PS4 until a new fw platform and bundle came out, but to each his own. I like to buy when the time is right, Jack! (Plus considering the surveillance, buying at Black Friday helps me hide in plain sight, after all I’m a goddamned alien.)

    I don’t know what you’re talking about with regard to the technical capabilities. I had to downgrade my interocitor with a Rosewill HDMI to use the PS4, whilst my PC clogs up like a stuck drain just taking that bitch Chop for a walk.

  • Ernest Seven of Borg Nine

    I just noticed you missed an edit in panel 2. YOU HACK! Also what is thing??

  • No one of consequence.

  • You mean Duke Nukem Forever? That game was announced in 1997 and didn’t release until like 2011, but even it didn’t have 16-bit pixel art in it. By the late ’90s games had already moved into mostly 3D polygons.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Right? Won’t even sniff a crotch.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    No, because The Honeymooners were poor white trash, and if they were presented as poor black trash that would perpetuate a negative stereotype, which is correctly frowned upon these days, except on MTV and Bravo “reality” television series.

    They should remake The Honeymooners with Republicans and sell it as Faith-Based.

    The whole first episode is up on Youtube, legally, in good quality, so I recommend everyone to watch it. It’s like a million times better at doing this type of thing than Robert Rodriguez’ has tried for most of his film career. It’s at least on the same level as Black Dynamite.

    or…
    you can ignore it. no worries.

    o.k My Weird life. (No LIES!)

    most evidence of my birth was destroyed by fire in 3 years of the supposed event. most of my blood relatives are dead… so is the doctor who delivered me. (He drove off a cliff called the Devils Elbow overlooking the hospital.) i would tell you the rest of it but after this its a bit unbelievable…

  • Ernest Seven of Borg Nine

    I’m, uh, sorry to hear all that. Incidentally there was a place called the Devils Elbow near a place I used to vacation as a kid. I used to wonder why the Devil only had the one. Now I know where the other one was.

    Oh. Right. So is it just me or have Star Wars games followed the trend of the films in that they start out being about normal humans with a couple Jedi and Sith thrown in and then progessively become more and more about “The Force” and less about mundane affairs? Case in point: Dark Forces 1 vs Dark Forces 2. Or Star Wars Galaxies, which staved off introducing the forces for years but eventually gave in.

    Welp, it seems my thumbnail/avatar/Robert Bresson has finally been stricken with this infectious thing known as a Christmas Richmas hat. After righteously slaving away in MS Paint trying to make this damned thing, I gave up and went the easier route using Photoshop. Even though I was feigning reluctance at this recent RedLetterMemia, it was actually quite fun to make and I somewhat enjoy the colourful hat on top of the monochromatic background. Now that I’ve finally gotten those papers done [handed them in on Friday] and only have one class left that I need to get work finished in, I’m starting to get in the festive mood.

    I wish you all a very Merry Richmas this holiday season! Let us go carolling our favourite Christmas tunes from the lovable misfit Mr. Plinkett himself!

  • They keep saying that, but I’m not sure what they mean exactly with that. You can definitely make something that’s like a crappy 70s/80s exploitation movie, Black Dynamite did it and everybody loves that movie. I think they mentioned it one time on a Pre-Rec stream or something as well, but I’m not sure what they said about it.

    It’s just that if you just make something with a low budget and have a weird title (Asylum movies) or you just do whatever you want with your movie (Robert Rodriguez), that’s the wrong of doing it. You need some actual creativity and batshit crazyness, and I think the people behind Danger 5 have that. I’ve seen the second episode now, and the ending is just baffling.

    I want a holiday called atheistmas. On top of christmas, of course, as I wouldn’t want all that lovely food and the presents to go away.

    There is nothing wrong with the logic of calling anyone who is not of your faith/denomination/sect/belief a nonbeliever, though, because they technically do not believe in the same thing.

    They don’t actually believe that they do not believe in some of the same things, which most of them do (they all venerate Moses and the Old Testament, for instance). The way you interpret it, is as if they do. Which by that definition would have to be either any of the non-Abrahamic religions or just atheists.

    Nonbeliever=someone who doesn’t believe in the same thing as we do. A.k.a. a difference of opinions/beliefs in regards to certain things.

    Wiki’s take on it: A nonbeliever is someone who is basically not a sheep and makes up his own mind based on rationality and reason.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonbeliever

    Nonbelievers are those who don’t share the beliefs of the majority. A tyranny of normality, as Papa Roach says.

  • Sully

    From an era when games were games and not cinematic experiences.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Thing is, there’s no way BLANNIE can be made appropriate for this generation. A story which is meant to be about a coy child teaching a sour billionaire the true meaning of life can only work during a time when people aren’t completely, utterly, totally entranced by materialism. Otherwise, it’s just turned into a story about a coy little brat whose dreams all come true because all of her dreams are all about bling.

    So, it might surprise you, I have hope for the generation of Blue Ivies and North Westesses. These precious little snowflakes are bound to rebel against their parents — it’s instinctual. And, the only thing they’ll have to rebel against is the money-hungry, “I’m An Über-Brand” lifestyle.

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    Everyone’s a critic!

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    Arg, I’m feeling so inadequate with my lack of hat!

  • Grand Wwyf Tar King

    No matter how little the kids in the video have played games, I find it a bit jarring how they’re confused by the most obvious game mechanics, such as spikes that hurt if you step on them and enemies who can’t be damaged once they raise their shield. There’s a reason why something like spikes are one of the most common hazards in video games; because they immediately inform the player of danger. It’s like someone stepping on a hedgehog and saying “ow, no one told me that would sting!”

  • Sully

    They’re used to game mechanics where prompts on the screen tell a player what to do. Games like Uncharted. Basically it’s paint-by-numbers, gamer style. They’re light on skill and heavy on graphics.

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    Even though I tend to hate the Fine Brothers React content, it’s a pretty good article (and the video is less drenched in ignorant mewling than most of them).
    I tried Megaman 1 & 2 for the first time not too long ago (never got to play much NES as a kid)… and the learning curve is pretty punishing. I wouldn’t say it’s really even fun right off the bat.

  • Jack “Red” Skellington

    Yeah I think the point they’re trying to make is lost a bit in the fact Megaman games have a pretty steep learning curve, no matter how old you are.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    At least put a hat on the burro.

  • In The Court Of The Evans King

    Yeah, it’s not fun. It is lots of fun.

  • Palpatine

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I felt the point was, despite difficulty, kids will play difficult games if given the chance. Everyone is fully capable of rising to the task, and people will keep trying if they see improvement in their abilities. You don’t need various difficulties of play to make a game accessible to everyone.

    It’s either that or “You can make really easy money by shoving a NES and a teenager in front of a camera and watching them rage.”

  • Jennifer Elise Bunnell

    I could see it getting more fun over time, but I was mostly experiencing frustration. Couldn’t even make it through one level. *face in hand* Maybe I picked the wrong ones to start on.

  • RLMkeepitup

    What we’re playing now: With ourselves, because no new RLM vids.

  • In The Court Of The Evans King

    Personally, I would recommend you to start with VI or V. Despite those being not remembered that much by the fans of the series, I find them very enjoyable and easy to play without great skills (the game itself gives you plenty of lives to continue through the hardest levels).

    Not only that, but the level design, the “new” feature (now Mega Man can charge his mega buster) and the difficulty curve is a lot similar to the first and second games from the X series, which are generally more forgiving.

  • Sully

    The Hobbit: BOTFA will released (US) on the 17th. My best guess is we’ll get a new HITB shortly afterwards.

    Perhaps we’ll get a BOTW between now and then.

  • In The Court Of The Evans King

    Classic, but my favorite of the series is the ninth. I know, not a very common opinion, but despite the nostalgic value I had the most amount of fun with that one. Speaking of Mega Man, did you try some fan made title? I played Rock Force recently and had a good time.

  • Palpatine

    But I thought John Carpenter looked like Jack Skellington?

    9 was awesome too. i played it to death. naw no mods though

    Is anyone excited about the Hobbit movie and subsequent review, though? I’m going to see the movie and want to see how they feel about it, but I’d rather see them review Annie, to be honest, just for shits and giggles.

    Action games were action games. I would argue Hideo Kojima Has been making cinematic games since the 80s, they just weren’t action games.

  • Django Plimpton

    I think that’s about the same age I was when I originally saw Star Wars [well, all three films]. They blew me away! I saw the first and was begging my parents to let me watch the other three, but alas I had to wait until other nights to watch them.

    The prequels came out shortly after. I only have vague memories about watching TPM, but I can recall seeing AotC somewhat and I remember seeing RotS rather clearly [I saw it twice, first film I’ve ever seen twice in theatres; don’t judge, I was a teen and thought this was the last Star Wars film I’d ever see in theatres].

    As a dorky teenager, I preferred RotS over the others because of all the light saber fights and Anakin turning into Vader. I think this is evidence of how much people can change leaving adolescence.

  • Sully

    I’d like them to start reviewing random movies from the 70s-present. Not just direct to video shit-fest, but just plain ‘ol run of the mill bullshit movies that everyone’s heard of.

    Maybe they could make a new segment in the vein of BOTW where they watch 3 movies and pick the Best of the Mediocre.
    Or maybe even devote a segment to reviewing movies that would never get made nowadays. They could call that “They Don’t Make’em Like They Used To… But They Should.”

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Shiggles.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I watched this last night. This is one of the less cringe-y episodes I found, but it still annoyed me how little they knew about how to play simple games or simple game mechanics. There are only TWO buttons you can press aside from the D-pad! Somehow, though, a couple didn’t figure out you could shoot until really far into the game.

    I’d be a lot more lenient on them if I could see that they understood what was going on and what needed to be done yet lacked the skill to pull it off well, but it seems they couldn’t even figure out how to kill enemies or dodge/hide from attacks.

    That said, this game did indeed seem difficult, but they were performing very terribly. Heck, watching this made me want to play this game. I tried to play Super Mario Bros. on my girlfriend’s NES a few weeks ago, but it went to shit. We [mostly she] tried to turn it on for about half an hour, only for it to work for about thee and a half levels being glitching again and dying. She tried for a long while after that to get it working gain, but gave up.

    I’m a bit jealous of their NES since it seems to be working reasonably fine, but I’ve got a friend who collects gaming systems and games and his works flawlessly it seems. Perhaps I should give him a call. Haha.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Strong, the givingness of the season in this one is.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I loved when they reviewed Return to Oz as a comparison to a current film remake. Could you imagine them reviewing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or The Dark Crystal in comparison to current children’s films? That shit’d be so awesome.

    Seeing Rich Evans react to “Bring out the Childcatcher!” or the child slave owner King trying to kill his BDSM-loving wife would be wonderful.

  • Sully

    Star Wars (A New Hope) came out the year before I was born. I wasn’t even 2 years old when my parents took me with them to see The Empire Strikes Back.
    I’m not sure if it was the film itself, or if it’s the fact that it was my first cinematic experience, but that movie has always had a strange affect on me. No other Star Wars movie has had that affect, just that particular one. Whenever it comes on, I get that coming home after being away for a long time feeling. It isn’t nostalgia. That’s a longing for home. It’s that feeling of actually being home. It’s strange.

    It’s also the movie that made me want to make movies.
    Most filmmakers I’ve noticed will site King Kong as their epiphany movie. Mine was Empire.

    IMHO, it’s cinematic perfection.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    It would be interesting to hear Mike ramble about PTA.Remember this bit in Plinkett’s Titanic review?

    http://i.imgur.com/bGxi7d2.png

    So according to Mike There Will Be Blood is brilliant,complex and challenging.Maybe he’s a bigger fan of PTA then Jay?

  • Sully

    Every few years studios will compete to make similar movies. They could even review those: Dante’s Peak/Volcano; Armageddon/Deep Impact; Capote/Infamous.
    Or movies that are similar by the same actor/director: Kickboxer / The Quest / Bloodsport.

    The possibilities are endless!

    Ya, like Jennifer said, I don’t like watching Fine Brothers, but my husband found the article and rarely sends me links from work. He even titled it “For your RLM friends,” which was really sweet of him. So I felt compelled to share.

    Original Gameboy Tetris, type B, level 9, high 5. Good times.

  • RisingZan

    The GOG.com release includes both the original 1994 (’95?) release and the 1998 collector’s edition, but I don’t think they have X-Wing vs Tie Fighter available yet.
    I have been playing their -rerelease of X-Wing and the difficulty on that game is brutal. The collector’s edition even has replacement versions of many of the missions to make them easier to pass. As I recall, Tie Fighter was more fun than X-Wing mostly because it remained challenging without being soul-crushingly difficult.

  • Sully

    SPOILER 4: This man has no dick.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Did you also get goosebumps when Jay played Tetris during The Avengers HiTB review? No? Just me? Okay, then!

  • In The Court Of The Evans King

    It would be nice if they did and Anderson’s recap, like they did with Tarantino when Django Unchained was released.

    But I have to say that I don’t think Mike will like Inherent Vice. I haven’t watched yet, but it seems to me that the film has a very thin structure and, as we all know, Mike loves structure. I wonder what he thinks about Howard Hawks’ classic ‘The Big Sleep’.

  • the corpse of Andrew Thompson.

    i was talking to someone about that recently. he said similar things about not being able to play old games. not because of the graphics but he didnt have the necessary skill set to play them properly.

  • Not entirely accurate. The original Ninja Gaiden trilogy, arguably some of the most fiendishly difficult games ever made, also featured lengthy cinematic sequences in between every level in what was dubbed the “Tecmo theater” (Tecmo being the game’s maker) at the time.

  • Yero

    Week 4 of no new HITB, BOTW, WOTW, Plinkett review, Grabowskis Season 5 or anything really. Pre-rec is ok, but it’s not what people really want.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    The Annie Trailer just makes me furious. A fucking orphan lives in a nicer home and has nicer clothes than I do. Do they not understand how to build sympathy for a downtrodden character? Everything in her life, from parents to living conditions, is supposed to be horrid so that her happy demeanor shines all the brighter. Annie in this film even has a nicer wardrobe than Ms. Hannigan.

  • Sully

    True but not like many of the games today. I’ve played games where you’re literally watching 20mins of cutscene, play 5-10 minutes, watch 15 more minutes of cutscene, repeat. And sometimes the gameplay isn’t much more than watching an action cutscene and pressing A or B when prompted on the sceen. Ninja Gaiden, at its core, was still game-based.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I remember seeing the trailer when I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2, great film by the way go and watch it, and it wasn’t terrible but it didn’t look any good. I thought as long as they update the story to fit modern times and do it at least half decently it could be enjoyable. Then I googled the film and found out Will Smith is producing it and originally wanted his son Willow Smith to be the lead until Beast of the Whatever girl was cast. Just based on that fact I knew that the trailer threw all the best jokes, all adult based, in the film at us to cover the fact that Will Smith is producing this crap. Will Smith is almost as bad Richard Linklater when it comes to understanding young kids. Even in School of Rock the kids weren’t real kids.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I like it. The character in the comics is a sarcastic ass who happens to be an assassin with a heart of gold, always needing to do bad things for his daughter, and Will Smith I think is perfect for that role I believe. Not as much as Leto as the Joker or that girl who has a crush on me as Harley but you can see him as the character. And it feels like he’s doing Suicide Squad because he realize that his recent films are not that good, or any good. Signing on to a movie with a great cast and a great director at the helm is a sure way to earn back box office success based on quality and not just a name.

Then focus on whatever game they feel deserves an actual discussion on Pre-Rec.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Perhaps I was harsh on you before, but honestly, RLM pretty much make up their own schedule. They asked for donations to help them get things accomplished and you can bet your ass they’re hard at work making content and grateful for those who donate, but to think you’re going to get special treatment or privileges to content because you donated of your own volition reeks of entitlement.

    Perhaps I haven’t noticed as much of a slump in heir content because I myself have been busy, but some patience and faith in them will go a long way. For all we know they’re juggling a bunch of work at the same time.

    Their t-shirt video they posted? Yeah, that background was most likely a set for Space Cop, so we know they’ve been filming more of that recently. I’m very certain the extra money helps them a lot, but there’s only so much a small crew such as RLM can do with the amount of people they have on top of other responsibilities they have as adults.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    “Don’t fuck this up!” True encouragement.

    After reading that article [I admit I didn’t read it before and just talked about the video I had seen before], I am more swayed with the author’s opinion but I still feel they’re ignoring some faults in the teens. Overall, though, they made a good case and I am more sympathetic towards these kids.

    The thing about Andrew Johnson (the president) is that, while some American presidents have driven the country into the ground through good intentions, and some have done it through selfish ones, AJ is the only US president I can think of who DELIBERATELY set out to sink the government. It comes from the fact he was a Southern diplomat during the Civil War (That’s right, there are seppos even among the Seppos), and Lincoln made him vice president after the war to try to restore some order between the North and South. Then Lincoln got shot, and we had a Southerner for a president, one who hated the North and the North-controlled congress. So yeah, his regime was one big **** you to the United States of America. The more you know.

    I don’t think so much a wheel of the worst as much as a wheel of WTF?. Not a wheel of terrible games, but a wheel of obscure and bizarre video games. I loved the stream where they played The Amazing Mr. Mosquito and I think it would make a great regular thing for them if they allowed themselves to be befuddled more often by devs with fever dreams. Things in the vein of Chulip or Yume Nikki or I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, or frog fractions, etc. Things that are totally unconventional in terms of narrative, or art style, or gameplay for better or worse. Sometimes they would find a game they detest in all facets, sometimes they will find themselves surprised by how well a weird concept works, and sometimes they’ll just be amused or in hysterics over how bizarre and awful the whole thing is.

    That would be a million times better than making them play shitty early access troll games like air control, ill conceived and buggy as fuck second tier Triple AAA game clones like Ride to Hell (GTA clone in this case), or other well known franchises known for ridiculous storylining and art design (the later final fantasy runs and really any Squeenix jRpg after 1999), etc.

  • Sully

    [Warning: You’ve activated Rant Mode]

    My demographic is fairly simple. I love movies in general, but I prefer science-fiction, fantasy, and/or action/adventure films.
    But I like them not based on any form of previously released literature, shows or games. The reason is this; I know what’s going to fucking happen!

    Whenever Hollywood does an adaptation there are only four possible outcomes:
    (1) They do a near perfect translation of the work (which is rare, but it happens), which makes the movie pointless. 300 is a prime example. It even looks like the fucking graphic novel.
    (2) The movie is decent… unless you’ve read the books. LOTR and Harry Potter fall under this category. I’ve never read the Harry Potter books and I thought the movies were decent. My wife has and she has never watched any of the movies more than once because they “piss her off.” I had a similar reaction to the LOTR films. You just sit in the theatre and question every filmmaking decision that was made. “Why did they cut that part out?” “That didn’t happen in the book.” “Who da fuck is this character?” Jurassic Park is another example.
    (3) The book contains a crazy plot twist, which, once you’ve read it, would ruin any interest you could possibly have in seeing it on the big screen.
    (Imagine if The Empire Strikes Back or The Sixth Sense were books first)
    This prompts Hollywood to do one of two things: (a) keep the shocking twist, which results in [see above], or (b) they have the balls to change the ending, which completely shits on the reason for adapting the work in the first place [see below]
    (4) Hollywood drops the ball completely and ruins the work in which they were trying to adapt. M. Night’s The Last Airbender (cartoon-to-live action) and Francis Lawrence’s Will Smith vehicle I Am Legend (based on Richard Matheson’s novel of the same name).
    I Am Legend was so fucked up I’m certain the screenwriters and Director didn’t understand the source material at all. ROBERT NEVILLE WAS THE MONSTER, ASSHOLES!!

    I like my movies original works. Things like King Kong, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Matrix, hell I’d even take Cameron’s Avatar over a book adaptation because it at least transports me to someplace new.
    The shitty thing is, there are literally thousands of original specs out there, but there are no balls left in Hollywood to produce them. Original movies will always surpass adaptations because it can only succeed or fail on its own merits. It doesn’t have to live up to any source material– to someone else’s imagination. It is what it is, and everyone watching on the big screen is in the same boat when the movie begins. They’re all along for that ride together, and I think that was the initial point of film. It was a mass experience, and that’s why that ol’ Hollywood magic seems gone now. People are already divided, they already expect the film, and so there is no slight of hand, no wonder.
    I dunno. Maybe they’ll get it back someday.
    They say specs are back on the rise. Let’s hope so.

    Rant over.

    So I received my Half in the Bag shirt yesterday. It’s soft like baby skin. And I’m disappointed by the lack of Boyhood stickers.

    ♪ ♪ DA-DA-DAAAAAAA ♪ ♪

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I agree with all your points. Well-made, Fox. It’s rare, but it can happen, that written source material is adapted into a great film. JAWS, PLANET OF THE APES, Lean’s GREAT EXPECTATIONS, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, but that is completely dependent on who’s doing the adapting. I know that sounds like a “Come on, really? Duh!” point, but it isn’t. It’s rare for works to be adapted with the kind of care required. Most usually some nitwit with lotsa money just buys something well-liked and says “Give this to somebody, and make it snappy.”

    I’d like to add, the whole idea of Demographics is anti-art. Market research. Audience testing. These are things that cater to commerce. And these are things that are crap. But, that’s how business is done these days. Sigh.

    I’m amazed that there are any movies made any more, ever, that appeal to me. Look at something like THE WIND RISES. An animated film that is a historical romance and is neither aimed at nor aimed away from children. Made with EXTREME care by an artist who is personally invested. Granted Hayao Miyazaki can do what he wants, but it’s amazing to me that a film like that is.

  • Sully

    Those are great exceptions you mentioned; Jaws specifically is one of my all time favorite films. That being said, all of the movies mentioned fall under the “They Don’t Make’em Like They Used To” category. Could you imagine what Jaws would be like if it were made today? Even if it were still done by Spielberg it would be chocked full of unnecessary CG and blue screen sequences because it’s “more economical” “more marketable” or “safer.”
    Look at the recent Planet of the Apes movies. They’re not terrible movies, by any stretch, but they take no risk. In a way, the new films fall under a new adaptation category; An Adaptation of an Adaptation. As I mentioned earlier, there’s no real point to these movies because we know the outcome. The effects are great, the stories are *meh*, and we go to watch them and then forget them within a week.

    The question is, what do you blame for the fall of Hollywood cinema? Is it over-saturation? Is it that apathy has become endemic to modern society? Is it over-marketing? Declination of artistic vision? All of the above?

    I’m not a cinema pessimist though. I believe that old magic can be restored. We’ve got the bottle. We need only that hint of static charge to induce Lightning!

    That lightning will come in the form of some unknown spec.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Ooh. Now, by mentioning the recent PLANET OF THE APES movies, you’ve risked flipping my rant switch. I happen to think these are probably the only reboot / requel / whatever-res that don’t need to justify themselves against the original. But that’s a discussion for another time. (I consider myself just left-of-highbrow, as far as my personal taste in movies goes, but PotA ((and anything Batman)) are my geek-fetishes.)

    As far as blame goes, I avoid that argument for the most part because it seems chicken-&-eggy to me, but I really AM a pessimist. At least as far as mainstream entertainment goes. Look, I’m a child of The Seventies. I envied The Sixties. But, there was an explosion of creativity that certainly carried on over into my developmental years. Then, The Eighties happened and nearly everything started to turn to crap. It’s my opinion. I know it isn’t shared by many who are younger. No need to even admit that. But, for me, music, movies, everything, quickly started to go sh!t-direction (that’s widdershins, if you’re pooping Down Under). The things that goosed me became more and more infrequent, while the things that infuriated me became more and more successful.

    If I were to really assess blame, then, the target would be Success. Money. Blockbusterism. The audience that is addicted to that. And the careerists who cater to that.

    The genie has been released from the bottle, and he was mobbed by a buncha numb-wits who craved more, more, big, loud, more, more, big, loud, more. So he granted their Greed Wish, told ’em all to fyuck off, and refuses to go back in his bottle.

    Now, I don’t deny that lightning might strike. It happened in music with Nirvana. I just don’t see it really happening, ever, in movies.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but people who don’t believe in Wikipedia are people who are completely without any knowledge of history. Yes, it may be biased, but so are all books in history.

    And I am on the completely other end of the spectrum of modern politics. Yes, that most hated spectrum. I am also a historian. And even I agree that a majority of knowledge on Wikipedia is true.

    People who claim Wikipedia to be untrustworthy only come across as uneducated nutjobs. Sorry to say. All people I have spoken to have confirmed this as well: most of them do not have any knowledge of history at all. Completely devoid.

    These same people have propagated this belief that Wikipedia is unaccurate or false, and that anyone can just write shit there. Which is not true. Why they do this is because no one can confront them on their bullshit with facts. It is a fallacy. They just attack the source of facts and therefore render the match as a draw. Or at least they convince themselves that it is. In reality they always lose and anyone educated see that.

    That U.S. history thing went over my head. I am not American either, so maybe that’s why. So did that Christianity vs. Sprititual Inquisitiveness.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    North Korea is the biggest failure of a country in the modern world. Did they really not expect their country, ran by an incompetent over weight child like idiot who lets people starve to death, not to be made fun of? In fact isn’t making moronic claims to have terror attacks because of the movie make people want to see the movie even more? Hell, I was, I preordered a ticket to an AMC Prime to go and see it. I actually think that canceling the release of the film is a horrible idea because this movie will make a lot of movie just based off of what happened. And I swear to you once North Korea is proven to be behind all of this Sony will release the film because North Korea is North Korea. They can never attack any country because they know the retaliation from others would destroy them before they end up destroying each other. By the way, AMC, give me my $25 dollars back.

    Rant Mode: ENGAGED
    *Don’t Stop Me Now by QUEEN blares through the webzone*

    Movie studios are so anti-piracy that I don’t think they could see any potential benefits from it and instead keep using old, dumb tactics that don’t really work to try to fight it.

    This is a convenient back-fall for Stony, though, as some of their key films haven’t done so hot [The Amazing Spider-Man 2, White House Down, After Earth, The Mortal Instruments, etc.]. I mean, their biggest domestic film from last year was Grown Ups 2 [*Mike and Jay starts bleeding profusely*] and worldwide it was Smurfs 2. That film was only saved by overseas markets yet it was a large drop from the first film even if they made a profit from it. Hell, Planes made more money than Smurfs 2 did domestically and that was supposed to be a straight-to-DVD movie and some shitty off-shoot from Cars!

    They’re going to use this as an excuse as to why they’ve lost money when they were already doing rather poorly. On top of that, though, this leak has exposed just how poorly secured their information was. I mean, they saved passwords under the title ‘passwords’? WHAAAAAAAAAAT?!

    What about all those poor employees, of which there were tens of thousands, who had a bunch of personal information leaked? It’s also funny how the media, and people in general, seem so keen to devour this leaked information as if it’s perfectly morally fine to comb through it and criticize people for things they privately said. The celebrity hack was a breach of privacy and so is this. The difference? The news can get away with showing words, but not nudity. They still profited from the celebrity hack, though, just couldn’t show the photos. Pretty damn hypocritical if you ask me, and I’m including myself in this. It’s okay if privacy is breached and we gobble it up, as long as it doesn’t contain nudity!

    I thought we reached an agreement that a black version of Annie would be abbreviated as Blackie.

    From Caroline Davis (the model). She admitted she was paid around 250£ to dive into an ice cold pond for Natalie Portman. Twas actually for liability reasons and had nothing to do with the need for a body double.

  • Sully

    To be fair, that scene is the only reason anyone I know even watched that movie. I’d say that’s worth 250£.

  • Robby

    I think that was around the same time as Black Swan, when she was pregnant. I just assumed she was showing and that’s why they used a double. Not that it matters. If I wanted to dock my canoe in Natalie’s port, man, I’d just watch Closer or (especially) Hotel Chevalier.

    Also, I have to dock points off of Plinkett’s reviews for clearly plagiarizing Eli Roth’s review that he wrote on some obscure fan forum 15 years ago. Does the RLM hack-fraudery know no bounds?

  • BlowingBubbles

    What if this whole “Interview” fiasco is another Adam Sandler-esque movie scheme? What if, they never actually made the movie and only made a trailer with no plans of ever releasing it? Then they could embezzle the $150 million it cost to “make it”.

    The movie about this would be better than “the Interview”.

    She not only is in the Thor movies, she is the absolute worst part about the Thor movies. When they have the Asgard people interacting, the movies are faily entertaining… then they cut to Natalie Portman and her friends, or Thor has to talk to Natalie Portman, and the movie just dies. I’d go as far as to say she is the biggest miscast in the whole MCU.

    What’s that? Previous movie in that trilogy made a billion dollars? Oh…

    It’s an excuse for theater chains and SONY to avoid the costs/loss on that one.
    They both know it will suck.
    Theater chains would end up showing it for free (as any money made from its showings in that short time frame would go to SONY), when they can instead make money having more screenings of actually successful movies like that latest J-Law flick or whatever else is making money for THEM this week.

    SONY on the other hand KNOWS it will flop and this is an opportunity to write off MORE as a loss and to get MORE from insurance – because terrorist threats.

    ‘Spooked’ is supposed to be ‘spoofed’, by the way.

    Taco’s being candid tonight. Also, my father just called. For some reason whenever he calls me, he’s always talking or doing something when I answer. Typically he’s talking with his girlfriend. This time he was humming something. This means I have to wait an extra few seconds because he doesn’t realize I’ve answered or is distracted by something else. Small pet peeve, but if you’re going to make a phone call, don’t start talking to the people in the room while it’s ringing.

    This has nothing to do with anything, but yeah … just waiting for new RLM content.

    Oh, speaking of Richmas being cancelled, it sort of is for me. My dad stopped doing it last year [gifts, that is]. Heck, while living with him I haven’t decorated in about 6 years [this will be the 7th without decorations]. No tree even. It’s also the first time I won’t be going to my mother’s Christmas morning to see both her and my sister. I don’t even know what I’ll be doing Christmas morning. Perhaps I should go to a soup kitchen or something. Christmas evening I’ll be eating dinner with my dad’s side of the family, so there’s still that.

    Matt Damon was unavailable for comment at the time but our sources tell us that he later made the following statement: “Maatt Damon.”

    Hey, I wrote a reply to this, but it’s disappeared.

    What’s that about? Am I being randomly censored?

    I can’t be bothered remembering and rewriting my entire train of thought!

    Weird.

    Definitely Catsup’s fault that time, le cadaver d’ Andrew Thompson.

    The “eat a dick, cunt.” Meme was going to far. its the 2nd or 3rd last image, and i agree with the Mods. that is “Uninviting.”

    its going to be Grate.

    As someone said. *people*: likes pushing buttons. and Andrew has loose buttons.

  • Sully

    I suppose that all depends on what part of the world you’re on.

    i surfed bells years b4 the movie came out.
    in the 90’s my high school graduation class booked out the closest caravan park to Bells for our end of year break. well the surfieAltGrunge kids did. we didnt invite dickheads.
    and we all mentioned how bad the portrayal of Bells was. “Wheal git im when he cums beck in.” is to this day an australian catch cry of bad accents.

    As featured in a movie where Nicolas Cage is completely and totally NOT coming off as a creepy stalker and an occasional casual pedophile.

    now due to a teenage trauma i am hesitant to click on that… is it Ironic? cause it isnt.

  • the corpse of Andrew Thompson.

    YAY! it wasnt what i thought… oh wait.

  • the corpse of Andrew Thompson.

    unfortunately i dont think the Mods have ever seen or heard of “Home & Away.” so the ironic swearing is just insulting. that said i dont think anyone in the Americas knows what i’m talking about. unless they remember the “Event” in question.

    I was going to ask if it’s still pedophilia if the baby is dead first.

    Invading Korea would be a reference to another time Korea was invaded, you know, the Boer Wars!

    I’m glad you also noticed the ‘spook’ thing. Now let’s drop it before Blannie calls us racist. Wait, Blannie? Fyuck consistency.

    Well, Jennifer was asking for it, not wearing that hat n’ all. Your work environment sounds like it has some pleasant people. Has the other lady received her Moham-ukkah gift yet? I hope it’s the Grown Ups 2 action figure [aka a piece of poop, coincidentally something roughly ~30,000 people ordered from Cards Against Humanity this year; Google it, I got a small laugh].

    I’m not too worried about Richmas not being the same. I’m just not sure what to do. I could sulk, but I honestly don’t feel too bad about it. Plus, hell, I live in a first world country and am wealthy enough [relative to the world, that is] to be comfortable and not have to worry too much about anything. There are plenty of things that could be worse, like one my Ferraris could need new tires or one of my swimming pools could need maintenance or one of my lies about my wealth could be called out …

    I’ll probably be here around Richmas time [aka I never leave; ’till death do us part, RLM].

    See? I said “whisper,” and everybody heard that.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I’m sorry, fa-fa-fa, my good man, fa-fa-fa. I asked the boy to bring me a dirty martini, fa-fa-fa, and he brought me something green with an umbrella in it. Now, fa-fa-fa, I have to find a new one. Boy, that is. Fa-fa-fa. And with all the illegals scared and hiding these days, it’s such an inconvenience, Fa-fa-fa. A fa-fa-fa-fyucking inconvenience. Anyway, you were saying… a little smoodgens in the pool? That’s nice.

    Well, I bought my Wii as an early Christmas present and downloaded Megaman 2. Ahhh…. nostalgia. Already took out 4 of the bosses. Holy shit quick man is a bitch without using Flash man’s power. Also, FUCK PAL SLOWDOWN! Why do I have to listen to these bitching tracks like they’re on a walkmen that’s about to run out of batteries?

    On that rotating image thing, there was a boy happily holding what appears to be an automatic rifle within a crowd while admiring Kim Il-sung.

    Nah… That’s a toy.
    Though child soldiers are nothing strange in countries that went through a revolution of some kind (How bout that little minstrel? Or Gavroche?) and their often heroic deeds become stuff of legend in accord with the Leia Organa principle, post-revolution children are usually taught that it’s not the guns that will defeat the foreign inva-doers but science and math and love for your country.

    It seems you think of me almost as much as I think of Jay. That’s so sweet… and kinda creepy. Thanks for the tip for my inevitable kidnapping trial!

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Yeah, yeah. All that is nice and all, but where’s the next Plinkett review?

  • I’m_Your_White_Knight

    Did you also play X-Wing? Or how about X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter?

  • ¡David Oakes! 

    STFU ?

  • Charon

    That was really hard to read. Eli Roth is an asshole.

  • I know this was filmed three weeks before it posted, but you should try Dragon Age: Inquisition if you like RPG games! Granted, I’m having more fun with the character conversations than I am with the combat mechanics, but damn if this game isn’t so much fun.

  • Kyle

    It seems that concepts Jack thinks of as new or unique were actually originated and popularized in free online Flash games. The time traveling mechanic of having a bunch of copies of yourself moving around on the screen at once has been around. And definitely the top-down line-of-sight thing where you can’t really see around corners. It’s funny because the original GTA kinda looked like Teleglitch with the 3D walls towering towards the screen.

  • Malevolence

    If you like Tie Fighter’s gameplay, play Star Fleet Academy, very similar controls, but you’re able to reroute power to different systems like, Taking sensors, teleporter, life support offline temporarily to super charge your photons or phasers, or even to increase your shield strength, whichever. The inbetween story mode is lots of fun too… you can also focus damage control to particular systems like in FTL…. it’s such a great game 🙂

  • Paul S.

    TIE Fighter… *swoons*
    I used to play that all the time on our win 98 gateway machine until we tried to put a new graphics card in it (lol) and it started freezing all the time and we just up and replaced it with an XP machine… which couldn’t play the game!!!
    Finally I can play it again! Love crushing the Rebellion.

  • Kyle

    There’s also an old PC game called X-Wing. Is it like a counterpart to Tie Fighter?

  • DarkFluffy

    Pretty sure X- Wing is the predecessor of Tie Fighter (full title would be nowadays “X-Wing II: Tie Fighter”). Both games lead to “X-Wing vs Tie Fighter” (ergo full title would be today “X-Wing III: X-wing vs Tie Fighter”).

  • DarkFluffy

    They made pretty clear with their last reviews about “modern games” that they don’t like them… or don’t understand. The Last of Us would probably be to long! “20hours?? Who has time for that??” Child (Ellie) would be just annoying, Grafic would be way to bad (new games have to look like real movies because they have no excuse of beeing made in the 80s…) and it is not first person but you have to shoot something…sooo…real crap. And the zombies are too fast and the whole fungus infection mombo jumbo is way to unrealistic. 4/10 probably.

    Do you still want them to review (rape) one of our most beloved games?

  • LameSame

    Yeah, but it’s not nearly as good. It’s the first entry; lots of rough edges.
