    I don't understand why Burnie says that games like "Shadow of Mordor" and "Destiny" feel next gen to him. Sure, both of those games are a lot of fun to play, but what exactly makes these next gen in his eyes? Especially since every game he listed has a current gen counterpart that are only slightly less good looking, slightly lower FPS (sometimes), and slightly longer loading times. If these are "next gen" titles, then I think the bar has been set fairly low.

    Totally with Ashley on not playing horror games ever - I can't even watch the RT and AH Lets play's in horror games... I tried but just no... never going to happen - have almost never watched horror movies either. Really can't see the attraction to be honest!

      I guess the attraction is the thrill of this scary thing. In the back of your head you are scared and that gives you a thrill but really you know it's not real. I just love all the classic horror movie and game tropes. They make me laugh when I notice them. Like in Dead Space 1 you walk in front of a corpse the first time and you are weary of it but it doesn't jump... but of course it's gonna jump when you pass it a second time and it does. Or when ever you think you are finally safe the movie or game finds a way to pull that victory right out from under you. Like in the OG Nightmare on Elm St where Freddy tricks the main character into thinking they won only to murder their mum in the last ten seconds and render the past twenty minutes of movie clearly still a dream. Those tropes are classic and funny as. smiley6.gif

    Burnie has some vinegar in him this episode. Which . . . kind of makes him sound like a bitch ("Everyone is being mean to me!"). But hey, jokes on me - I watched the whole thing, and will watch all subsequent episodes, just like I've watched all past episodes. Good one, Burns.

    TL;DR Orcs are what the race is, Uruk-hai are half-orcs half-man made by Saruman, and Uruk (Black Uruk) were essentially the original Uruk-hai made by Sauron instead of Saruman.

    It is actually harder than I woulda thought to find a decent hourglass that doesn't cost a small fortune and that is actually an hour long hourglass (wtf is a 5 min hourglass?).

    Never heard of the place, and even this one is a little pricey, but with it's exterior protection/frame, 45 bucks isn't too bad;

    Wild Orchid Quilts Nautical Ship Sand Timer

    Please think about it. Would buy it and send it to you guys if I could, but on the cusp of an XB1 purchase right now, finally. The Patch deserves a fancy-ish hourglass smiley0.gif !

    At first I thought it was disrespectful of Burnie to play a game this while podcasting but if it were audio only i wouldn't notice him playing. But i guess it was just a mindless slasher game.

      You both have an unpopular opinion. It really shouldn't be surprising that people thumb down your comment. It's a indicator of agreement, enjoyment or belief in a comment and people disagree with you. If this was Youtube you would have twenty idiots swearing at you for having a different opinion. It shouldn't be sad or offensive but a great sign that we're a part of an amazing community where the worst "abuse" you'll get in the comments section is a thumbs down (which really is only important if you value other's opinions more than your ability to breathe.) I like the game, I love the Rocksteady/Ubisoft combat system and I love Lord of the Rings. Good day sir, thumbs down only ever mean that someone only THINKS that you're wrong, rude or unpleasant. It doesn't mean they are right. smiley1.gif

      I'm glad SOMEONE besides me has a critical thought about this game, but people down vote you for it? All I hear is non-stop praise about Shadows of Mordor and the gameplay I've seen looked decent, until I saw how basic and boring the combat actually was.

      Destiny (the streamer/youtuber) reviewed this recently and tear the game apart, but he did provide good points on why he was so disappointed. However in his follow up video he does not hold back and it is quite hilarious.

    FYI: The only person on my Friends list doesn't play Shadows of Mordor and I have no followers because I'm totally not a cool person and yet I get Vendetta popups. Might be that it prioritizes friends for the system, but you can definitely get people outside that group

    Burnie giving some props to Winamp! That's how I found Red Vs Blue, I was searching for porn and saw a channel that said "funny Halo paradoy" and it was playing season 1 of RVB!

    If you don't want to play 'borderlands the presequel' on the old generation of consoles, it's also on PC mister Burns. The controls might be off putting for a console gamer but you mentioned playing a lot of PC during the post nextGen consoles lull. smiley8.gif

    EDIT: Welp I commented too soon. Note to self: Don't comment before you've seen the entire video.

    Windows Phone is awesome, I've loved it since I had my WP7 as week after launch.

    I had an iPhone 5 all last year, and earlier this year I gave it to a friend of mine in exchange for a copy of Titanfall an South Park and bought myself a cheap Lumia 920 to use till the 930 came out and I could get one through my telco.

    WP8.1 puts it on the level of iOS in my view, its just as good...well better to me, but yeah as @jinx said...it still lacks app development, . The one and only thing I miss from iOS is The Simpsons: Tapped Out, otherwise....no regrets whatsoever.

      The ultimate irony is that developing for Windows Phone is a lot easier than on iOS and Android, at least in my opinion. WP even outsold the iPhone in 24 countries last year.

      Bringing Minecraft to WP is a step forward but it's going to take a while until it's on the same level as the other platforms, appwise.

    so let me get this straight... Video game news that made the Business sections front page in the sunday NY times doesn't make it on the patch?

    Is this really news here or just RT babbling? Because they try and represent it as news.

    • tanukivilla FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      The Know barely constitutes as news. It's an aggregate that has no problem repeating other news site's rumors and does nothing to verify the information it "reports".

      The Patch isn't a news podcast, originally at least. They rebranded it into a "news" podcast to help garner interest in their new The Know channel, which they moved The Patch to. Just watching bit of the The Patch makes it obvious that is it just some of the employees opinions on games.

      The Patch is just a podcast, not a news show. The Know is where you will find news

    Orc's are like the members of Lazer Team. Uruk-hai are like @alanritchson.

    You know, I'd have actually bought the Pre-Sequel if its writer didn't respond to criticism in such a passive-aggressive and immature manner.
