  • Where have you guys been all my life?! I was in tears. Bravo! The baby part at the end... 🤣 Returnal is my favorite PS5 game. Do you guys try to platinum games too? (Subscribed. I'm in!)

  • I’m watching this video and my daughter (6 years old) right by me died laughing at the “wittle baby” bit at 6:15. That was pretty great😂.

  • I know its sarcasm about beating this game in 18deaths, but this game relies heavily on luck. I got so luck it would put Dreams Minecraft Speedrun to shame. I beat the second and third boss throughout in my THIRD run, I suck as shooting games (only one I played is Last of Us). I had 300% HP and consistent 50-60% protection with huge damage buffs, the third boss which is considered hard was laughable easy and I intentionally got hit on purpose to see the cool particle effects, until i killed him out of boredom, once again I did not deserve that victory, I kept loosing to my way up-to the first boss by dumb mobs. Please don't count deaths as a measurement of skill in this game lol and just have fun.

And the -2 seconds for the alt fire jeezus. I’m not a gamer. I’m a regular person experiencing what it’s like to be a gamer and gets frustrated. Gimme my diapers now

  • I mean i don't usually hate Girlfriend Reviews, but Days Gone is a great game specially if you play it now. You just have to play a bit longer and do not stop at a couple of hours after you start playing it. Actually its easily one of my favorite games of all time. I played a lot of games believe me, since ps1 era until today. We don't always see an open world zombie game with great design and story these days.

Ok, let's press play and.... "GIT GUD SCRUBS!" Seriously guys! FML :////////
