I'm not sure if this belongs in this thread or the other, so here, this video's full of great insight.


Now I know it is definitely the right place to post this, as it is certainly more reputable, than either of the reviewers just mentioned prior.

I'd rather it'd been something more like Dead Space.  I avoid FPS games.

Maybe we will get something like that in a few years time, I'd be very onboard.

It should be set in a space convent.

Well, that's a relief.

The "wooden planet" then, not exactly for rather obvious reasons, in terms of inspiration.

The big chunky jaw they gave Stompy compared to the original will always be what keeps me loving that bastard.

That was my reaction to their video too. It's almost as if all of the background knowledge that they have when it comes to movie-making helps with their primary programming being viewed more positively, something that can't really be said for their video game reviews.

AFAIK, neither Jack or Rich have actually programmed or published any indie game themselves. There's also a latent bit of "video games kinda need to be like this for me to like them", along with a bit of odd AI exhibited on their streams.

I've never had the Alien ever behave the way it did in their videos. I dunno if they used an unoptimized version or something, but I couldn't replicate it. I still tried to glean what little constructive I could from their review, and the only thing I could gel with was their critique of length and how Amanda's story is concluded.

It's also kinda insulting that they blatantly ignored constructive criticism in comments and instead made a reply video punching down at a poorly grammatically constructed sentence, that could just as easily have come from a deaf person non-fluent in english or ESL foreigner without the proper grasp of English. Either way, I'm glad their show's dead. They're better at movie and tv reviews anyway.

Nicely put.
