    here's a little tip, RT. If you're ever going to question the integrity of any gaming journalist, make sure it's not the guy who literally lost his *job* because of an honest review.


    and you're actually wearing a damned pip-boy while doing this?? SHILLS!

    Pretty sure I've listened to my last Patch after the unwarranted disrespect to GB for no real reason. All because fans value a man's opinion? Who would ever take The Know seriously when you guys take childish jabs at other gaming news outlets?

      ..... Maybe it doesn't happen on the patch very often, but they take jabs ("childish" and MMA boxing jabs) at everything and anything they feel like. They could be more professional sure. But that's not what makes them unique and awesome. <3

    Just to put it in persepective.....in a years time no one is watching fallout 4 on twitch, starcraft will have the viewers still....also starcraft players are less likely to watch when the game is new, they will be playing it. If anything I bet starcraft viewing figures are down now compared to 2 months from now.

    Man, I love Meg, but she was super naggy and argumentative this episode. Sometimes too much is too much.

    Your thoughts on the reviews are about as stupid as the people who think reviews should be objective... Just because you can ignore problems a game has on consoles doesn't mean a reviewer should, plus a 3/5 review doesn't mean a lot of people(even the reviewers) won't have a great time with it, read the words not the score, shills.

    Gerstmann gave the game 4/5, how is that considered low?

      @SeanTFlynn Giant Bomb scoring doesn't work straight stars to percentage. 4 stars is it's fun for fans and others might enjoy it. 3 stars is fans will like it, but others might not - this is all in loose terminology.

    Not terribly impressed with the whining about Fallout 4 getting lower scores and trying to paint such opinions as illegitimate. We get it you love the game that doesn't mean other people have to share your opinion of it and that people who disagree with you are just pretending for ratings. Especially if it's as much of a buggy mess as nearly every other game Bethesda has ever released.

    The last couple of years there are so much games that just feel unfinished. Tons of bugs, frame rate issues,... Don't these guys test their games? Is this the new standard publishers and developers are setting for games? Cause if that's the case i fear for future releases.
    I think the problem is the release dates, they set a certain release date and if they don't make the deadline they'd rather release a buggy game instead of manning up and postponing the release.

      Except that with fallout 4 they didn't need a release date because when they announce the game it was basically done

    You can't tell other people what their ratings should be when their business revolves around game critiquing and being critical of the pros and cons of games from a non biased perspective. It's very clear Fallout is something a lot of the podcast peoples both on and off this episode hold dear to them. Bethesda gets away with murder when it comes to glitches, crashing and falling short of standards that others have placed in front of them as well. IGN said it well "With Bethesda it's "cute" with others it's "game breaking". There is glitches that ruin 20 hour game plays, there is parts of worlds that don't load and so on and so fourth. These are all negative aspects of the game that should be taken into account. Some people review games based on a ‘day one quality’ and others on a ‘best standing’ of the game. No one is wrong or right. Critiquing and rating something is purely personal opinion but RoosterTeeth has shown time and time again they are biased and also not journalist nor do they strive to be so when companies or channels that focus on that aspect of the gaming world give something a non perfect score because people are having bad experiences it’s not unjust or wrong. It’s saying what needs to be said because that’s how this works.

    There is a lot of negativity being thrown out there with aspects of Halo 5 but I don’t expect to see RoosterTeeth diving into this or anything that really reflects Microsoft, 343, Bungie and the like in a bad light. They’ve said they don’t talk about the negatives in games, they prefer to highlight the positives and talk about what the love. Which is why I loved this podcast. It was different than the rest. Either be journalist or go to your roots because as of late it feels negative and highly uninformed. What’s the point in describing characters or game details when you’re saying it wrong. Talk about what you know and what you love. It would make for a better quality podcast. I think you guys need a negativity jar because Ryan would be broke. I think I would love to see hosts who’s day jobs are to be involved in gaming news and journalism like FunHuas (who are actually funny guys), just because you’re around games or play a lot of them doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your homework. I love you guys and have been a fan for a long time. Just saying what I and some friends feel the show has come to.

    The bugs are fucking ridiculous in Fallou 4, Gus just really likes it. I've had graphical glitches, subtitles freezing, and many many more game breaking bugs...all on PC. It is bullshit that people are giving Bethesda a free pass but as soon Ubisoft releases a broken game, you make them give you free DLC and lose millions. Every Bethesda game since Oblicion has been a buggy mess with the exception of Dishonored. People are too easy on them because "I MEAN I'M PLAYING FALLOUT 4". It's not an excuse.

      I haven't had a single game-breaking bug. Frequent subtitles glitching and few graphical glitches but I'm chalking that up my gtx650 getting old.

      Bugs occur at random, some people get none, a LOT of people get multiple.

      I've had very little problems (especially nothing game-breaking), and i'm on pc as well. I think that bethesda gets a bigger pass for glitches because of the sheer scale of their games.

    To be fair to people giving "low" reviews, most reviews give waaay too high scores. "9/10 has some serious flaws..."

      But don't forget there are also review done like IGN. Game is perfect 7/10. But agreed bugs imo need to demote a score big time especially if the bugs are consistent.

    Of course, everyone's experience is different, but like Gus, the only bug I've seen in Fallout 4 (on Xbox One) is a small glitch on the subtitles. Everything else has been user error (I couldn't cross a gap I knew I was meant to cross, so I had to do a weird platforming thing that was definitely not meant to happen; turns out I just can't see bridge activation buttons).

    I agree with Ryan. My siblings used OSX for the majority of their life, but I introduced them to Windows 10 and they are all obsessed with it now. Apple is making like Steve Jobs and adopting PC.

    I am a huge Metal Gear fan and originally I did not like the ending. At first I thought the only purpose of the ending was to deal with a plot hole from Metal Gear 1 and 2 that most people would not even know about and fewer people would care about. However, the ending did manage to do something that the series needed to do. It made Big Boss rather evil. Somehow we needed to go from Naked Snake to Big Boss in Operation Intrude N313. Upon reflection that ending managed it. Overall, not a great ending but still way better than Peace Walker (I thought MGS2 was the sappiest most melodramatic story I would ever see, I was wrong).

    So you'll totally load The Know channel up with clickbaiting, bullshit titles, then turn around and bitch that someone had the audacity to give Fallout 4 a lower score for the sole purpose of getting attention. Pretty fucking hypocritical.

      I find it hilarious that they call out Gerstmann, the LEAST pretentious journalist out there, who even lost his original job at Gamespot due to simply giving his honest opinion (which he still does to this day). The Know has always reeked of corporate apology, and this video just affirms what a bunch of fucking clowns this channel is filled in.

    I've said this before on another video, but the Warcraft movie trailer looked good to me. The only issue I had with it was that I went from the live action / CG nature of the film trailer, immediately into the WoW: Legion trailer which was full CG. I'm hoping the movie isn't bad, because that would be a monumental letdown to the fans.

    I've never liked Ryan more than in this episode of the patch. He's absolutely right about gaming on Macs. If you want to be a gamer, you need to own a PC. If you're expecting to be able to play every game that comes out on your Mac, you're simply delusional.
