Too bad they want to charge for HTML5 access, I'll have to wait to get home tonight to see if it tops his Portal 1 review.

Yeah, he's pretty much dead on. But then how do you follow such a game changing title like that?  If it's too different, no one likes it. If it's too similar, you get yawns.

I'll go back to it every once in a while and say, "Hey, this is really good.  I should focus up and finish it."  Then I don't.

Also, my game list takes too long to load.

Yay!  He justifiably skewered it.  Although, I can't help but think he wasn't harsh enough.  Why the hell did I pre-order this game?  My biggest gaming regret in quite a while.

yeah, he really should have ripped it a few more new holes, plus he didn't mention Team Fortress 2 <take a drink!> enough to get really drunk.

and, just in case you missed it during the Lost Week, LA Noire.  It may contain an ending spoiler, I'm not sure if he's serious or not.

This was dead on, IMO.

He is serious.

OK, so avoid the LA Noire one if you haven't finished the game and don't want minor spoilers.

Honestly, I watched that a week ago, finished LA Noire last night, and had completely forgotten about it.

It might stick now that we've talked about it, though.

And the first Witcher. The inventory and combat system are overly complex. I love his comments about needing a different sword for different mobs and the potions.

I like the limited use of potions, especially since those potions last a long time. But having the meditate to take them is a bit odd.

Even if you don't play through as evil, you owe it to yourself to see the Evil ending, it actually works if you switch sides at the end. If you thought the good ending was emotional, there's parts of the evil ending that will break your heart.

The Shadow of the Damned seemed like he was slowing down a lot. It had its moments, but certainly wasn't worth watching unless you were looking for a review of the game. Also, it could be shortened to : Too easy, not wierd enough, and lots of penis references.
