Lol if I were at Download, I wouldn't be thinking "Oh I must update my Facebook status", I most likely wouldn't be thinking anything coherent due to highly elevated alcohol consumption levels.

I gave a fuck. :D

I remember going to see them at Wacken, not knowing what they looked like (only having listened to their stuff), got into the W.E.T stage, saw these guys with gothic stage set-up and corpsepaint, assumed they were just finishing so Powerwolf could come on soon.. then they started playing. :lol:

Just went to watch it because there's nowt else to do. As far as I'm aware none of the first half of that review was true. At least, I've never had any of those glitches happen to me and his control issues are stupid.

People who watch Yahtzee for his fair and balanced reviewing style are doing it wrong.

Yeah but he rarely ever mentions it, which I think is fair enough. There are plenty of people who don't care about multiplayer.

I'm not particularly bothered about multiplayer, I am a bit miffed that he flat out made stuff up though. Or had a different version of the game to me.

Eh, it was pretty clear he didn't get past the first 3 hours of monster hunter.
I greatly enjoyed the reference, Joe.

This.

Yahtzee himself stresses that he focuses on the bad points because it's not an enjoyable review if he just sits there going "Well, the game is kind of good really."

I'm pretty sure he mentions one tiny part of multiplayer but it's brief and not obvious. RDR is a massively glitched up game. I'm on the forum for RDR and there's tons of threads about glitches. Also, it's just a bit of fun so it's not going to be ALL completely accurate. Obviously I don't agree with everything but the glitches and the running into walls stuff is all right.

Yeah, enough fun that you've dragged your phone out to mess with that to distract yourself from the gaping blackhole that is the current conversation and you hope as long as you all stare at your phones no-one will speak but the longer that happens the wider the berth grows until when you do speak it is but a whisper, everyone stares momentarily with a look that says "Burn. Burn you absolute shit" and then back to tapping tapping tapping away.

Or something.

EDIT: Just re-read that shit. I really need to stop typing out my streams of consciousness.


No, keep doing it! It makes the lols...
Maybe I am just the road, dreaming that I walk

I get that, point is he blatantly made up a bunch of shit which...

Wasn't actually made up. Thus rendering my point pointless.

Good part is I have the best copy of RDR in existance where bears aren't annoying and there are ne'er any bugs.

Eh... wait for it. You'll eventually come across something and if you don't you're a lucky bastard. Also, bears are always annoying and terrifying.

Lamest glitch I had was when I was doing some mission with Ricketts where I had to rescue Luisa or w/e she is from that cell. He was arming the TNT and I went to cover behind a crate or w/e, then I was teleported into the room he was trying to blow up. Except the blowing up sequence never triggered and I couldn't open the door. Luckily I was able to shoot Ricketts in the face through a tiny gap and redo the mission.
Other than that, s'been gravy.
