That hypocrit made a video about The Last Federation?

Bah, maybe something good'll come out of it. But I can't stand that guy. But maybe it'll be good for Arcen.
This is the part where I quote someone in an attempt to look clever? Nah, too mainstream. I used signatures before it was cool.

Whatever your opinion of the man, he wields an impressive amount of influence.  And halfway into the video, he seems to really like it quite a lot.

I guess he does have influence.
I just hope he'll do the research before making his presentation video, this time.

You are doing the same thing you accuse him of doing.... watch video first, comment later.

He does like the game, and mentions the primary bugs, gameplay issues and issues with the GUI ;P

Once they are fixed, the game is going to be fun ;p

Oh the irony of this post.

Its a great video and he did a great job explaning the main concepts of the game.
And for a game like this its not a easy job.

Usually, at this point, I ask out loud about your intelligence.
Because no. Not at all. I judge him on his past videos, not his current video. Just see his Frozen Synapse "test". And compare with his online stat. Notice how he mentions he'll be playing that game all summer. And notice how he played the game TWICE.
Things like that are enough to destroy my confidence in him and his judgement. I wanted a honest review, I got a guy trying to sell the game by exaggerating how good it was and how he enjoyed it. If he can't be honest with a game, then that means he's dishonest. And if I want a dishonest review of a game, I already have Steam for that. Steam and its "that game is awesome" extremely developped reviews with 50 people out of 51 thinking this is a helpful review giving a valuable insight of the limitations of the game while highlighting the possible source of fun in said game.
Some people just don't understand what a review is.

His current video is probably better, if Hyfrydle is right, but it doesn't change the fact that he was phony. Phony being a nice way to say QUACK. Or charlatan, fake, fraud, humbug, impostor, mountebank, pretender, quacksalver. There are many synonyms, and I listed them ALL ! Gotta catch 'em all these synonyms.


PS : Sorry for not writing these in my usual humourous style. But Total Biscuit is just a person that I can't like or respect. Same go for his white knights. I hate them. Now I'm going to check the options, see if I can hide that thread or something, and go post in another thread. Maybe I'll go complain about spikes in A Valley Without Wind. Or about the Acutians being robotic filthy capitalists. That way, I won't be bothered to see that thread (please read those two last words out loud while clenching your teeth, audio background of damned screaming to death being optional but helpful) again, and everything will be fine in the world.

Good day.

Can we please keep the discussion about this particular video, rather than TotalBiscuit himself?  I think there is already a thread in Off-Topic for that.

I don't even know where to start. I probably shouldn't start at all, considering there's always that one guy who has a hateboner against TB for some completely inane reason, and we really don't need another thread like that.

Isn't this a pretty big deal? Very happy about this. TLF deserves this (and more).

Admittedly, I played like 10 minutes in the beta of the game since I was quite busy at the time, so now I have the game for free. Then again, i've bought all Arcen Games up to this point and support them no matter what.

The video made me actually want to play the game for realsies, so I guess he advertised the game well.

I would not be surprised to see TLF do a climb back up the top sellers list on Steam within the next 12 hours.
