I don't get the joke. Like I understand that it's a gimmick deck based around a bad card, but I don't understand why it's funny to make a bunch of copies of a bad card. It doesn't do anything!

I guess it gimps the opponent by inserting bunches of pointless cards into his deck making it less likely that he is able to draw what he acually needs and not a pointless 1/1 for 1.

The fun thing(to me)is that Crendor decided to make a deck that relies on drawing as many cards as possible,against TBs deck that relies on making the opponent overdraw.Thus Crendor was actively helping him.

Oh I got that part. It's typical Crendor suicide. I just thought the weasels had more to do with the fun part, apart from TB using his 101,1 WEASEL voice.

Crendor does seem to have a long history of playing humorously badly in games with TB

While its fun making fun of Crendor,lets be fair to the goof and show how awesome he can be:

Crendor attempts one amazing thing,but does another (even more) amazing thing instead.Dont read the title of the video if you want to be surprised.

Guy, guys I think we have just gotten the best LP ever.

GeoP (previosly mentioned) plays and his crew comments on Asura's Wrath: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... v-4MSufffg

This game is like the fighting Anime, the video game. It extensively uses quick time events for the best reason to do ridiculously cool fightscenes. The art is also wonderfull for the limitation of the system it was published on. And while there are janky sections, the plot is good and the ramping of it is great. Any other rough spots are smoothed over by the crew doing the commenting on the game. Seriously you should watch this.

Also looking at it this game does a LOT of things right especially with the variety of scenarios it throws Asura in, from punching normal sized dudes, over smashing spaceships fleets to blocking planetoid sized fists, I'm surptrised there is not more of these. There are quite a few janky parts, where they reuse mook fights to padd things out and those are nowhere near as fun, but the rest is ... great. It might be annoying to play at times, but to watch was an expirience.

Steve Sinclair is the lead developer at Digital Extremes which makes Warframe. He also doesn't really have to answer to anyone since he's also basically the owner. He is playing through the game as a new player and making notes and sharing it on Twitch. He gets into the details under the hood. Like he'll open up the source code for sections he's talking about and show it. DE_Steve stresses all the problems, visual artifacts etc he finds and any other problems with Warframe. He also compares Warframe to other games and says what kinds of ideas and elements he wants to lift and put into his game.

Basically if you want a Let's Play that is interesting to developers and would be instantly killed by the legal dept in any other company, this is the stream for you:

TheDarkId's Let's Play of I am Setsuna is finally, finally, finally completed and added to the LP Archive. It's probably going to occupy my free time for the next few days at least, so if you wanted to air your grievances, trade recipes, or have me officiate your wedding, I'm afraid it will have to wait. Sorry.

Still in The Witcher 3. Now that I've upgraded, I'm enjoying cranking up all the settings. I can even turn on the hair. I could live in this game forever.

But I won't because I just picked up Dishonored 2 half off, so I'll be starting that one soon. Hopefully get through most of it before Spoiler Warning does their season. I'm so glad they wait. I guess this is the one thing that makes me thankful they're doing Life is Strange now.

By the way, Dishonored 2 was half off yesterday on Steam. Probably still is.

So I managed to blaze through TheDarkId's Let's Play of I am Setsuna in only a couple days, so ravenous was I to finally wade through it. And then, at the very end— in the last paragraph of the LP, in fact— Id, my favorite Let's Player of all time, whose work I've followed for years and years through good times and bad, announced that he just didn't have time for LP's anymore, and that I am Setsuna was to be his last.

One week ago, he started an LP for NieR: Automata, the sequel to my favorite DarkId LP of all time and, hell, the sequel to one of my favorite games of all time.

This should be my cue to finally break down and get a SomethingAwful account of my own, so that I can actually follow along with the thread. Fuck, I need one anyway for... reasons. But then, I have enough respect for NieR and its insane creator that I should play the game before totally spoiling myself on Id's take of the game.

AAGH I'VE NEVER FELT THIS MUCH AT ONCE.

So,TotalBiscuit has another cooptional lounge with friends,playing an interesting board game:Sheriff of Nottingham.One of the players was Crendor.Shock of all shocks,he screwed up.But this time,he screwed up in less than 15 minutes.Its hilarious.

Im sharing this before continuing the watch,so I dont know if Crendor fucks up again,but its likely that he does.

EDIT:Everyone fucks up.And the accents!Dear god,the accents....

EDIT2:Wow,that final play,just amazing.
