That was a fucking mess. Joel McHale was just being a total cock and not in a fun way. Who asked for a Borderlands Telltale game? This was absolutely not thread worthy, but we got a pretty good Thief conversation out of it I guess.

It was horrible. At least No Man's Sky looks good. I'll probably try that BL Telltale game too, but we really don't need the company working on four different games at once.

I thought the show was trash fucking garbage. i could only make it 2 hours. it was all bullshit and morons from youtube instead of actual celebs. Last years was way better, and it was still shit. At least Samuel L Jackson was there.

Last years was bad in one of those so bad its good kind of ways. It was fun cracking jokes about. This year was just plain awful. So fucking awful. I couldnt stand it.

The best part was when McHale called it a "video game commercial show" SO FUCKING TRUE.

All of the announcements were shit apart from No Man's Sky, which I'm still very skeptical of. The Division engine trailer was neat and I'm kinda interested in Thief, I tried the originals earlier this year and just couldn't get into them. Oh, Mega64s awards were the greatest thing, I went crazy seeing them on there.

Smosh with their le epic half life 3 gaiz XDDD jokes and Pewdiepie being an insufferable cunt as usual almost gave me cancer. How people watch or think these people are funny is beyond me. Knowing Taletell are now juggling 4 different projects is kinda annoying. Borderlands? Really?

And yet, despite not seeming to know jack shit about video games or what the fuck was going on, he managed to ask better questions than 99% of other people who present this shit.

That bit with Tim Schafer talking about Ellijah Wood being in 3.3 million when Joel goes "So how much did it cost you?" "Oh... Err.. I.." "I mean how much did it cost the backers?". You could fucking see Tim just getting angry and wanting to leave.

Plus he called Dorito Pope out on being a yes man, that was the greatest part of the whole show.

He was horrific at first but by the end I was only watching it because of him.

Everything McHale did, and said demeaned the games far less than Smosh or Pewdiepie did, and he actually demeaned the entire show with it. So I have to give him credit.

He was not the douche the VGX deserved, but he was the douche it needed

He still could have used a felt goatee and a missing arm.

Im going to have to agree with Trip here. Nothing Mchale did was entertaining to me. He wasnt the only problem but he definitely turned the show into a joke. Would have been content with Geoff hosting it by himself. That being said the bigger issue for me was the lack of announcements. 3 hours and we didnt really see much new. Sorry but I dont really care much about any of the new Telltale games.

It pretty much was anyway though. Smosh, Pewdiepie, those stupid fucks involved with GTA5s OST. It'd take a lot more than just removing Joel for that thing to be taken seriously in even the slightest bit.

Completely agree that those were unacceptable as well but I don't think that gives him pass for being an ass. He turned what could have been informative interviews with developers into awkward situations. I might be in the minority but I find it interesting to hear what they have to say and I didnt find his questions funny at all.

McHale said a lot of dumb things, he said some offensive things, but he was on that show the entire time basically calling it shit. Honestly really NOTHING about it was entertaining, but the fact that the celebrity guest host was calling it shit the entire time is great. The whole thing was a huge trainwreck and he stood there pointing and laughing at it. I don't think it was the right way to go about it, but maybe they actually will try to change this shit next year.

I get whatcha mean. I didn't find anything they were showing to be interesting so it didn't bother me. On top of calling out Dorito Pope, Joel also managed to piss off the social justice warriors by saying "he she" so he's all good in my book.



Oh, also the icon for No Man's Sky reminds me so much of the one of the angels from Evangelion, it looks like it has a core and everything. It's so neat.

I have to ask uhm why did people take offense to that he/she comment. He/she's do exist like you know the person posting this comment.

That's one thing (among many) i absolutely hate about SJW's. They get all up in arms about anything remotely offensive to trans people, but leave female to male, and bigenders (like me) to rot. CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE NIGGA

Well really they just shouldn't of hired McHale to be co-host. They should have known he would do this. This is the kind of thing he would make fun of on The Soup. Still doesn't excuse it for me. I still thought just interrupting and talking over devs during interviews was just shitty. I don't think I saw the questions he was asking that were good. They all seemed either clueless or just asked to make things uncomfortable. Most didn't present a good answer. I didn't watch the whole thing, so maybe I missed the good ones, but if it was anything like what I watched, maybe we disagree on what a good question is. If you mean his questions made the thing an even greater disaster and like spiddy you eat that kind of thing up, then I get it. I'm super easily embarrassed for others, so that kind of thing just makes me cringe.

Like Killa, I actually like to hear what devs have to say. And the developers were the ones there that didn't deserve McHale fucking around. They weren't writing the bad jokes on the teleprompter. They didn't book interviews with Youtubers. They didn't make silly skits. They just came on to talk about their games. So I think once he started affecting those demos/interviews he kind of lost me. And this comes from someone who liked McHale on both of his shows and even on talk show interviews like Conan or something. He's a funny guy, but I didn't like what he did here. He wasn't THE problem on the show. Just one of many to me.

At least Killa agrees so I'm not totally on an island... haha.

I feel kind of on the middle ground with McHale, depends on whether I was interested in the game or not though. With Schafer I was interested to hear what he was doing for it and wanted more questions instead of what happened, but with Reggie I didn't need to know anything beyond Cranky Kong being in so it was kind of fun there. I'm wondering if those developers would boycott that in the future though for what he did, I imagine a good chunk of them are pissed over it.

I didn't watch the show, but I find McHale to he very annoying. He has always seemed like a smug cocksucker, and from what you guys are saying sounds like my expectations were right. Whenever I tune into that awards show, it always seems like complete shit though.

I don't really blame McHale for it. Sounding like an asshole is kind of his thing. He was completely out of his comfort zone, and he was just doing what he is good at. The only alternative he had was to not talk. And he obviously can't really do that on a show that he's hosting. According to the credits, Geoff was co-hosting.

Stopped after 20 minutes, not because I quit watching it but because the stream was buggy and kept freezing so I quit. But the show wasn't that good to begin with from what I saw. I bet alot of devs knew the new format wasn't good which is why we didn't see alot of new things.

and honestly, i'm sure they gave him cues, told him or at least gave him an idea of how to act. If they didn't want him to be that way they wouldn't have had him on like that. He got paid for this I'm 100% certain they didnt just tell him to ad lib everything.
