^ Was there anything written on it? Maybe the dryer left you a message.

It's a piece meant for humour people... HUMOUR! Relax, it's not a real review.... don't take things so seriously, sheesh. You do realize he gets paid by the publishers to look at their games right...? If I had such a setup I'd probably not be too harsh with any game, however bad it might have been...

Of course he got paid? That's the whole idea behind it?


He usually says something nonsensical when scoring the game at the end (e.g. "out of an 88, an 88 being pretty good, a 110 being excellent, a 150 being awful, a 3 being not bad... I would give this a 26C.") This one seemed to be a much more direct recommendation, as if he's plugging the game, which wasn't the case in his previous reviews.


All of you saying that there's nothing out of the ordinary for the way this review is handled with the direct 'plug' are missing the entire point of why I said what I said in post #2 and what Daedalus reaffirmed.

Watch some of his other reviews. This is the first time we're missing the dumb score at the end and usually Conan rags on the game 90% of the time. Watch some of his other reviews. His other reviews are hilarious and don't give the feeling of listening to a radio show host doing a radio spot talking about his favorite plumbing company or male enhancement pill like this review does.

Conan O Brian is from the Conan O Brian show, not from Clueless Gamer. Clueless Gamer is a segment of said show. Get it right, TC.

I wish less big names would pay for the promotion. He plays the same kinds of games a lot.

Saying that it's a game for basement nerds doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement to me. Or did you just hear "you'll REALLY love it" and forget all the rest of the words he was saying?

Well DAMN. Looks like Conan is about as honorable and accurate as every other game reviewer. They should add him to the metacritic list.
