    Well, he hates turn-based combat and thinks that Dungeon Siege has good gameplay. His tastes are... very specific.

    I wouldn't take him too seriously on the front of gameplay since he's a hotblooded warrior at heart and is good as long as he gets to punch things, but his videos are incredibly informative and entertaining nonetheless. The obscure source material certainly helps too.

    You just have to watch his Deus Ex video to know that he's an absolute bro. I'd buy him a beer.

    We don't really celebrate Halloween across the pond, but there's always the appropriately themed videos to look forward to.

    A few new videos from Ross. I was worried that returning to Freeman's Mind would mean less Game Dungeon episodes, but fortunately, that is not the case!







    This last video made me inspired to play the game (it has been on my list for a long time), since I want to watch the video, but I do not want it spoiled before playing.

    "A New Beginning" is a pretty mediocre adventure game, but it's still better than most of the stuff released in the last couple of years.

    At first I was thinking he was getting a divorce and I thought "oh no, not this shit, not you.". :(

    But that's almost equally bad, if not worse. He's a good dude that deserves support, even though he looks too much like Matt Barton for his own good.

    Incidentally, if he can wait a little bit, I hear there might be soon a room available at Totalbiscuit's house.

    Not a Game Dungeon, but I don't know where else to put this. A few months ago Ross and Tom interviewed Alexander Brandon, and the video got finally uploaded on Tom's channel.

    Uploads once in a blue moon and he had to make almost 1h long video about some Ubisoft overpriced shovelware with one redeeming feature that can die when they pull out the plug.
    Spore video was better tbh.

    also

    Yeah,no.
    He likes dungeon siege because he hates turn based combat and he likes the fact the it is like a squad based diablo.He doesn't go calling it "da best rpg evar".
    He also likes deus ex which is a shit game right?

    That is like saying he hates all the good old rpgs. He is just a popamoleist. Also Dues Ex is a unique and not exactly and rpg.

    You will be surprised how many favorite codexers games are rtwp(not entirely real time but far away from turn based).

    He also said that gameplay in Human Revolution was an improvement.
    :hmmm:

    Ross has weird taste but his Game Dungeons are still more entertaining than most gaming related videos on YT.
