    Just downloaded the Sniper Elite demo, killed two guys in one shot. It's pretty great.

    Edit: And now I killed a rival sniper two blocks away.

    Eve might as well be set in 1980's Lebanon.

    Looks like Black Ops 2 will the be the Future Soldier game Future Soldier likely never will be, I'm in. Jeff has an article on it that's pretty interesting. The fake video Zandracon posted got taken down, what was in it?

    And we're getting a Quick Look Supplemental for Trials Evolution, huh.

    all the talk about Eve on the bombcast made me wish there was someone acting as an investigative reporter in that game

    someone who can translate things to the real world

    I predict that Brad and Ryan will not be able to complete a single extreme track in Trials Evolution if they are having that much trouble getting 135 medals

    Ryan proved me wrong by beating the first track!

    Brad did not. Can't believe the dude doesn't know how to do a proper bunny hop at this point. He doesn't stand a chance on those tracks without understanding how that sort of thing works.

    I wish they would have realized that if they went to the proper leaderboards and not just their friend listing that they could have seen actual player runs. Would have been fun to see them watch one of the 0 fault runs people do on those tracks, they're absolutely insane and make no sense

    I hope whoever sent that mailbag works at Cadbury, or some distributor, or somewhere that gets chocolate for free or at a massive discount, because that's gotta be a couple hundred dollars worth.

    Yeah, I feel like while Brad is bad at videogames, this is not a case where someone else is an improvement.

    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it
  • AntimatterAntimatter if you want to talk to me look elsewhere.Registered User regular
    Jeff or Ryan silently filmed Brad play trials before the first quick look and he nailed it

    He does not do well when he knows he's being watched

  • Beef AvengerBeef Avenger Registered User regular
    edited May 2012
    The fact that Brad doesn't know how to bunny hop is kind of a big deal in that game. That's not really a 'being watched' thing

    it's like one of the foundational things that they teach you. He must have had to brute force a ton of levels with tons of trial and error to get that far without it/

    Those levels are tough as shit though, i've completed all but 2, but with a few hundred faults on all of them

    Before I say this, I wanna preface it with I love these guys. Ive been a premium member for a while and its honestly possibly my favorite entertainment website.

    That said, I literally completely, totally can NOT fathom how they continually fail to just read text. Brad apparently missed how to bunny hop, and put his cursor over the bike that says RIGHT NEXT TO IT how to unlock it and says he doesn't know how to get it.

    This is something my brain can't make sense of. Does he think it's there for decoration? And its not just Brad, the other guys do this too. Is it some factor of the sheer number of games they play?

    This got really bad during the Chrono Trigger ER. Took Ryan and Patrick a long time before they figured out they have to actually read things and older games would actually punish you for not doing so

  • rfilyawrfilyaw Registered User regular
    Yeah. I want to say it was just because I knew Chrono Trigger that it was kinda bad sometimes, but I'd never seen Deadly Premonition before the Brad/Ryan run, and that was pretty painful too.

    I still watch and laugh a lot, despite how bad they can be.

    (Vinny, Jeff, Dave and Drew are pretty great most of the time, though)

    I mean this game is all about trying the same thing over and over again with tiny variations on the theme.

    Also it looks like he does know how to bunny hop?

    edit: tChincy, they fail to read the text because they are focused on talking about the game and trying to be funny, not actually playing the game. It would be way different if they were just playing the game with a camera behind their shoulder and no talking.

    And usually they have not played much of the section of the game they are playing before-hand.

    2/3 through the quicklook they talk about the mechanics of the bunny hop and Brad is way off

    and you can tell by the way he handles jumps without ramps, he doesn't know how to properly launch himself

    okay yeah I just got to that part where a simple bunny hop would have solved this part for him but he is just not doing it and hoping that he will get lucky again like he did earlier

    Brad will be the first one to kill his kid.
    He'll raise him to about five years old. Then he'll say, "My son, I love you so much I want to have another child to love so much."
    But then he won't read the prompt and accidentally overwrite his current kid.
