Giant Bomb:

You know, I've noticed several spots throughout the Endurance Run that Ryan and Patrick make some incredibly dumb decisions - not knowing about the Scouters (did you guys not see the pop-up menu after all the counterattacks?), forgetting that they have a flying time machine that can skip sections of 2300 AD, and, in today's part, not trying out other party members when trying to enter Castle Guardia until 20 minutes in.

Sometimes I wonder if they're just pretending to be dumb, or if they're just terrible at the game. Or maybe I know too much about Chrono Trigger; someone who never played it before could possibly get stuck like them...

And now their lack of ability to PAY ATTENTION TO THE TEXT has caused Bucca's mom to be crippled for life. Good job guys. *Slow Clap*

Fallout: New Vegas is getting an ultimate edition. I knew it'd happen sooner or later.

By the way, the comments, as usual, suck.

[up][up][up]I screwed that up my first time playing, so I don't mind that. I do mind, however, that they took so damn long to figure out that you need to leave Robo in the past to help restore the forest.

Part 40. Once again, these guys display great ineptitude, and this time, I'm not sure you can even attribute it to Guide Dang It.

Okay, you have an enemy that counterattacks everything, and evades any attack you throw at it. The 5 flames around him absorb any magic attack, physical attacking the same one will display "Miss: Flame Counterattack", and the boss routinely uses Roulette Shuffle. Is it that hard to figure out at this point?

[up]Sorry, I should've gone into more detail.

I linked to the Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Part 40, where they fight Son of Sun, a Puzzle Boss. I was saying that, even if you didn't know the trick going into the fight, I think there's enough hints given that you can figure out that you have to attack the correct flame to damage the center.

Considering the history behind this website, today's front page is quite meaningful.

Maybe the CT run's faults were because of the different team they used? I don't remember that many issues in Persona 4, even if they unknowingly gimped themselves a lot of the time by not using buffs.

No, if you look at the videos, you'll see that they have an infuriating tendency to not read what's on screen ("Barrier Change/Only Water Damages" "Use lightning!"). For a while I even thought that they had that part of the screen obstructed but they eventually DO read it which makes it even dumber.

Well, they read stuff in Persona 4, so it's probably the different guy they had there.

OK, why is this guy in the top 20 again? Wasn't he a troll over at the AV Club? What gives?

Why would I write that?
In fairness to the Persona 4 stuff, they're also doing commentary along side it and talking to each other as well. As a viewer we just watch, so we probably see more then they do. Also:

They recently had a site redesign, and it looks nice. Also, Brad is attempting to play through the original Devil May Cry and Alex gave the new Aliens game 1 star.

Also, a sizable chunk of the website treats Patrick Klepek as The Scrappy when it comes to doing Quick Looks and writing articles that are a little too heavily influenced by his political and social views. Anyone agree/disagree? I for one think he's an okay guy, though a bit annoying at times.

The only problem I have with Patrick is that he looks younger than me but really he is almost a decade older than me and for that I hate him.

I think the reason people don't like him is that he is super serious when it comes to reviewing and most of the other guys constantly crack jokes about things.

That, and he's a feminist. One look at some of his articles with 1000 comments shows that he tends to look for sexism where there is none and pisses off a lot of people in the process.

To be perfectly honest I haven't noticed much of a feminist slant from him, although the only news posts I could find were for the stupid Dead Island statue.

At least the users on Giant Bomb can state a reason for not liking him. Over on Youtube they seem to have picked up on people not liking him yet don't understand the reason, and then we end up with endless comments about how they hate Patrick.

Other feminist-esque articles include his coverage of the #1reasonwhy Twitter campaign and his article on how E3 Babes need to go away.

They're currently playing some new releases right now.

At this time: Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm.

Drew and Patrick took a trip to Iceland lately to attend an EVE Online related event. It's interesting:
