** During recording of the second part of the ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' commentary, Lewis had doubts that the PC version's delay was for improving the DRM on the game. At the same time the part went live, controversy was already breaking out about the PC version having the Denuvo DRM.

* GrowingTheBeard: Amanda's commentary in their playthrough of Sailor Moon R was seen as a significant improvement. She's largely quieter than she used to be, her chipper personality is a nice contrast to the guys' deadpan remarks, and her enthusiasm for things she's a fangirl of give her a GenkiGirl appeal. While she still has some quirks to iron out, her reception is much better with several comments expressing a desire to see her more often.

** Many jokes about Ryan being quiet in some commentaries became a lot less funny after he revealed it was because of his Depression.

Added DiffLines:

** Averted with most of their RPG playthroughs nowadays. The commentaries for ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' were released in blocks and went back-and-forth in order to keep either game from dominating the channel. Lewis's ''VideoGame/Persona5'' playthrough was designated as a weekend upload so as not to break the pace of the regular commentary schedule.

* HarsherInHindsight: Amanda mentioned in the Ib commentary she doesn't like to bug people out. And then she found out that she's considered TheScrappy of the group by many.

** Ryan is the one that most often makes factual mistakes about the topic at hand, such as repeatedly stating Pokemon Gold and Silver came out in 2001, when it was actually 2000, and saying Captain Planet isn't in Creator/CartoonNetwork: ''[[VideoGame/CartoonNetworkPunchTimeExplosion Punch Time Explosion]]'', when he is actually the last character you unlock. He also said that Mega Man 9 and 10 were for the Virtual Console, when they were actually for WiiWare. This one could be written off as a slip of the tongue. The team also seemed all convinced that the period between The First Movie and Gold and Silver was extremely brief, when in reality it was almost a full year after the movie came out that the games hit America.

** In Part 4 of New Super Mario Bros Wii, the guys talk about wanting a [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon Luigi's Mansion for the 3DS]] (It should also be noted that they discused potential names for what would become the WiiU earlier in the Playthrough).

** Many fans believe that Ted secretly loves [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Gen 4]] and Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda and may possibly be LetsPlay/BillyMC.

** Ted was, at one point, well on his way to becoming the most divisive member of the crew. Examples include his voice being grating to some (it's probably his accent), coming off as egotistical (both in his [[FanHater intolerance for people liking games against his bias]] and his HolierThanThou attitude toward anyone with [[CantTakeCriticism the slightest issue toward him]]), his tendency to [[AccentuateTheNegative overstate]] his issues with games that he has distaste for, and to some, coming off as preachy and stubborn. It's worth noting, however, due to this backlash, he's stated he's trying to become better about this sort of thing. Despite efforts, he still comes off as stubborn on social channels and remains the most divisive member.

*** Lewis in the multiplayer tends to get a bit of criticism in Co-op LP's, as earlier ones with shared lives meant his lesser play led to more game overs. Not to say he isn't trying, but there are a few instances such as in Return to Dreamland, where he keeps trying to use the boot after losing almost 5 lives, and suiciding to switch off Kirby rather than just use the normal character switch mechanic. Subverted in Little Big Planet, where very often Lewis is the only player left and clears challenges fairly well on his own, and averted with Rayman Legends, where Lewis's gameplay stops impacting the others thanks to the absence of lives.



** Hell, pretty much every commentator is a base breaker to varying degrees - Johnny is probably the only commentator without a significant hatebase. The only thing that comes close is a minority of people sometimes getting annoyed with his "philosophical reasoning" about some things, like his reasoning for keeping most of his Wii U games digital. If that's not petty, I don't know what is.

** Later revealed in the crew's LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'' that they were just teasing Ted the whole time and they did believe him.
*** That didn't stop the fans from running it into the ground, though.

him. That didn't stop the fans from running it into the ground, though.



*** Split 3: Some feel as if the commentary being almost solely Ted is poor due to having nobody else to play off of, with Ryan having nearly no interest in it at all and both John and Lewis having no experience in the Pikmin series at all. They think a guest who enjoyed the game would have been good so that there could be a balance between both opinions, while others don't care or think that the cast didn't need a guest at all, or the most reliable candidate (WebVideo/Chuggaaconroy) wouldn't be available enough. Lewis has actually made a statement about this: they didn't do so because according to him, it would be dishonest, condescending, and balancing tone ultimately doesn't matter.[[note]]Source: a comment on Part 6.[[/note]]

** Although it in itself WAS a CrowningMomentOfFunny... Johnny states in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'' that Hal is making the 4th installment of the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series when in fact Namco Bandai are making it.
