    That large hour glass is too much. The other is the perfect size and doesn't cover up anyones face. I don't want the video podcast to be all about some random prop. I would rather there not be one at all and use the video timing that was created but if you are into having one at least go for the non obnoxious one and definitely not two.

    Is it me, or is Ryan just good at lightening up possibly volatile/controversial discussions?

    Meg should do that cosplay idea she had just to see how long it'd take to annoy the hell out of Gavin.

    So many topics covered and I loved every minute of this Patch. Could the sand glasses not be so large and intrusive to the view? I know it's a petty thing but I find them distracting. Just a thought.
    Anyways new Blizzard game Overwatch has my interest, hoping on the next Patch Gus might talk some Warlords of Draenor, maybe?
    Halo: MCC matchmaking is still a little wonky, did a big group get together of it online that had issues which sucked since we were just playing custom games amongst ourselves.
    I remember when Aeon(Aion?) came out my mom got it for me for my birthday while I was deployed, never got to play it because I didn't have reliable internet overseas so when I came home I completely forgot about it.
    I am so excited for a Majora's Mask remake for the 3DS, hoping they do some sort of bundle because I will absolutely buy one.
    Also GoT by TellTale may be my first game by them I actually play since I've passed on the Walking Dead game so far. Will see.
    I know it's been said before that he is busy when the Patch is filmed but would it be possible to get Jack back on? Also Ray and/or Ashley?

    I feel Meg is just naturally high energy when it comes to being on podcast. She has relevant information to the topics being discussed, but is quite annoying at delivering it. Ashley used to be a frequent member not too long ago. Wonder if she might appear again alongside Ryan and Gus.

    Meg is great when discussing serious topics or getting passionate about games she loves. But I agree her go to goofy voice can be toned down a bit.

    Meg's alright, don't really have anything against her. But can we get less Meg on the Patch and more anyone else.

    Don't waste money on Crunchyroll! Tried it for a few months and streams constantly lagged to buffer or froze entirely, and episodes were always late. Kissanime is free, has no ads and, if you have a Wii U, the mobile version works great with the gamepad.

    Great podcast, and I have to say, I've really warmed to Meg since she first came to RT. She's one of my favourite people in the company now, and even if I don't watch everything The Know do, I'm still quite happy to know that it's around! :)

    Also, does anyone else find the noises that only a dog can hear that Meg makes all the time annoying? also what does Megs real voice sound like cause shes always doing stupid accents..shes perfect for Gavin..also ladies if you want a job at Roosterteeth just fuck someone that already works there and you are in!

      Your timeline's wrong there. She didn't come over to Roosterteeth and move to Austin until after she and Gav got together. Not saying that's why she got hired (it isn't, she got hired because she's a well known internet personality), but it was after she and Gavin became a thing.

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

      Meg was hired by Rooster Teeth before she started going out with Gavin, dude. Similarly, just so you know, so was Lindsay. Sometimes you should probably actually research your BS before you go putting it out there.

    no MMO is successful in comparison to WOW? Really? then you've never played Final Fantasy XIV. Long live the Warriors of Light! Huzzah to Hyperion!

      Really...your comparing FFXIV to WoW?. FFXIV 3 Million active Subscribers and WoW 7.8 million active Subscribers. Now don't get me wrong the WoD release has been a shit storm, Hackers ddosing and Blizzard not making free realm transfers from High pop realms with 5k plus ques. But in terms of successful the Warcraft series is 20 years old this year and WoW is 10 this year. At this point the only thing that can kill WoW is WoW.

    Halo 1 Legendary is pretty rough, yeah. Once you get past Truth and Reconciliation, you're golden. The bit after the grav lift with all the sword elites is the hardest fucking thing.

      It's pretty goddamned tough, but you can get through it. Be on-point with your sticky grenade throws (those will still kill them in one shot), especially when they're occupied butchering the marines. Throw at center mass, I've found the hitboxes can be a bit wonky between the old graphics settings and the new ones, which occasionally will make it look like you've just thrown a grenade straight through them. Maybe even sneak a melee assassination in if you're lucky. Try to clear the groups of grunts and jackals quick as you can with frag grenades and your assault rifle. They can cut you down almost as fast as the elites if you don't pay attention to them. Don't forget there's a health pack and active camo in a corner (though you might wanna save the health for after, you'll probably need it), and you can retreat up one of the side passages if things get too dicey.

      I've been stuck on that part for 2 days. No matter what I do, no matter what strategy I try, I can't get past it at all.

    The thing in the crunchyroll ad about dubs needs to be taken out. That's just absurd. There are a decent amount of people that prefer English because you watch a show to watch the characters not read stupid subtitles.

      Unless it's available in the UK I don't give a damn... (and would prefer not to be reminded that this is the most useless place on earth to get anime from :(

      And the quality of dubs has drastically improved over the last 20 years.

    Bioshock 2 just never seems to get its fair due whenever it's brought up on The Patch. I found it just as good as the original, with a lot of notable improvements (a more personal story, better developed characters, better implimentations of story decisions, improved gunplay, etc.). Plus, Minerva's Den was one of the best DLCs of last gen. Even with its own legitimate flaws, Bioshock 2 had way too many good things to offer to simply write it off as "horrible".

    On the plus side, I'm glad they got to talk about more Nintendo stuff this time. smiley1.gif

    • Matt317 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold the guy

      2 years ago

      To be fair, I think alot of that was simply because it was a hot topic. But yeah they do talk in great detail about why they did or didn't like Infinite, but the most I see about Bioshock 2 is a cursory remark that it sucked (like in this case).

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

      What's really weird was all the Bioshock Infinite hype/love, while still bashing Bioshock 2. Like... what?

    • Matt317 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold the guy

      2 years ago

      I know, right? I think the most you can say against it is that the story admittedly starts out kind of slow (which I also think might have turned off a lot of people), and that it sometimes follows the first Bioshock a little too closely at times. But even then it's still a great game in its own right. I can tell there was a lot of talent and effort put into it for it to simply be a cash-in.

      I think they should atleast give some concrete reasons as to why they don't like it as opposed to just saying "it's horrible" or "it's total shit". I mean they've talked about why they did or didn't like Infinite in great detail, and even the first game, so I don't see why Bioshock 2 should be any different (provided that most of them have played it of course).

    • Burnt2Shreds Metal Gear

      2 years ago

      I agree. Sadly I think a lot of people wrote it off as a cash-in. The gameplay improvements alone make it worthwhile to play since it makes using the environment, traps etc. more worthwhile. A nice story where your choices actually matter and Minerva's Den, by far my favorite DLC from last gen, is just icing on the cake

    4 minutes in and Meg is already talking about female representation, just fuck off, Gus brought up a factual anecdote and you made a completely irrelevant statement about a woman's boobs. You know what Meg, the dudes behind the girl with the 20 inch biceps, ridiculous abs, 7ft stature and pecs like concrete blocks kind of seem over-sexualised too, but maybe that's just because I'm not a bias fuckwit.

    • John41

      Dude, she made a one sentence comment, two seconds long, that Gus agreed with, and it was perfectly relevant to the conversation.

      @edwardcoate Doesn't matter. It still doesn't give you the right to fling insults and treat her that way.

    • Drummin003

      2 years ago

      She's perfect for the liberal bias that exists in that god awful town and among most of the RT staff (especially Jack). I've just learned to avoid watching any video that she is apart of because she will, at one point or another, open her mouth and start spewing absolutely biased nonsense.

    • edwardcoate

      2 years ago

      @Matt317 No I think she is a fuckwit and will always take the women's point of view, Burnie and Gus always try to look at it from both angles, not her though. They need to find a woman who actually likes facts and doesn't treat subjective things as black and white.

    • edwardcoate

      2 years ago

      @NicKenny Bias fuckwit means someone who is bias and a fuckwit, I don't get your confusion.

      Hey now, I think we can do without the insults, here. She even agreed with Gus that they were a step up from WoW's female character models. You're free to criticize, but leave the childish insults out of it. No one, especially no one at RT, deserves that kind of treatment.

      This isn't Youtube after all.
