    I'm doing this and having a lot of fun, and I thought I'd share here.

    Here are parts 1 and 2.

    Skip to 2:10 in the first one if you don't want to hear my boring mission statement.

    extreme difficulty is for children if you can stop time...

    at this point in your life you should probably kill yourself... or get a life

    stopped watching this shit right there

    solid 'imdeadinside announcer' voice though

    fear would be a good shooter if it was 10 hours shorter, namely the 10 hours in teh fucking cubicles, sooo real! like life!

    Well I enjoyed the heck out of watching your videos. The horror really seems weak though. Guess that's what happens when you make a shooter with slow motion and kung fu and try to make it scary.

  7. F.E.A.R is beatable on Extreme Difficulty without slo-mo.
    It's more fun that way.

    I'm aware it's beatable, but the slow motion makes fights feel about a billion times cooler, and it encourages charging out with extreme disregard for human life. Adopting non-slowmo tactics means having to stay safer, sticking to more cover and such, because you have less time to react. It's more challenging, but not much more fun.

  9. Depends on a person, then. It felt quite refreshing after Rainbow Six series.
    Not to mention that you don't have to stick to cover. Just learn to navigate properly and make yourself less of an obvious target to shoot.

    Why do so few first person shooters have gunplay this satisfying? It's like making core gameplay fun went out of style with the release of the Xbox360.

    Even though that radio chatter makes no sense in context, it's really satisfying to hear them freak out as you engage in firefights.

    sexbad I've been going through your reviews. Your channel is pretty cool man. Some good reviewing going on. You have some very well-balanced thoughts especially when it comes to shooters.

    My only real criticism is that your editing could use a lot of work, by which I mean that the stuff you show in your videos is rarely related to what you discuss at that point in time. Which is a damned shame considering that what you say is often relevant, analytical and well-spoken.

    Regardless, you have +1 subscription :thumbsup:

    Yeah slo-mo throws difficulty out the window but hell, it's fun. And that aside, the fake AI is great -- it really says something when simple scripting in a 2005 game is the furthest FPSs have gone in that regard.

    Keep it coming, Grunker's spot on.

    Thanks, Grunker. I recognize that my video editing is flawed, but I still haven't found a way to cut through lots of different images that are more relevant to individual sentences/ideas and have it be as telling as more prolonged exposure to game footage.

    I'm attempting to be refined with the FEAR series though. Maybe something will carry over to my next video.

    Part 4:
    You may notice narration of educational or informational value in this part. This is to get the YouTube canary to allow it to be monetized. Parts 1 and 3 are under intense scrutiny right now, even though Part 2 got through just fine. YouTube support is now ignoring Fair Use and telling me I need to get permission from the copyright owner (presumably for the game footage and not my narration), so I am in the process of bugging WB Games about my stupid shit.

    Voice reminds me of Patrick Bateman

    Just FYI sexbad you have a great (and sexy voice NO HOMO). I like your videos, also if you have not considered it before, you should definitely do some voice overs for games. You would be a great narrator for a game.

    Yeah, some FPS LPs would be awesome broheme! Don't try to force the funny, just rant off details about the gameplay and such.
