I don't understand the appeal of TBFP. They don't have any intelligent insight over the games, the whole thing just ends up being a meme-fest. I really don't want SH being degraded like that.

They have an appreciation for silent hill 1-4. It may get lost in their banter sometimes but it's there I assure you.

Have you watched their silent hill 2 lp?

The last LP I watched of an old game (resident evil 3) I tried to watch of theirs, they didn't seem to understand what they where doing and there was talk of multiple recordings and edits. I just don't find them sincere enough to trust with something like SH2 unless they toned down the memes.

They are big RE fans as well. If you don't like their style it is what it is but I assure you, they have a lot of resoect for both franchises and criticize them accordingly.

It looks like they chill out a bit later in the first episode. Might be a good playthrough.

Very more-ish this series! New videos uploaded. Currently up to Heather's apartment. I hope they do something else with a Silent Hill game when this is over.

I have 3 essays to finish in 5 days, I might just marathon this in the 2 hours I have before passing out, hopefully they are uploading a new episode everyday.

Man. Pat couldn't spoil things harder if he was trying. He was way too unsubtle talking about Lisa.

Glad I've already played the game. xD

For some reason I never really realized just how dumb the M.O.A. boss battle was, which is weird for one of such significance. She can fire an uzi one-handed, sideways, and with little recoil, as well as block katana attacks with her bare arms.

I'd say mainly because it's way too outrageous for such a meaningful battle. She might as well be wearing a backwards snapback and shouting "I'mma bust a cap in yo ass!". I hated it when Walter did this too with the dual pistols. Also why would an Alessa monster be able to hold it one handed no problem while Heather still has to use two hands?

The attack blocking thing is more of a gripe I have with any game that does that, Downpour did it too. Your bare arms are still vulnerable, it should still hurt when I hit them.

That's not how I look at it at all. That type of image of her wearing a
backwards snapback and shouting "I'mma bust a cap in yo ass!"
is something that doesn't seem to fit really. I mean the symbolism in the boss battle kinda takes away any sort of thought like that for me in the first place.

She uses what's at her disposal and is able to block attacks because this is a boss battle against a manifestation of Alessa's mind that wants, above all else, to stop "God's" birth. What does it matter if there is or isn't recoil from a machine gun? I mean this entity is the Memory of Alessa. So how do the laws of recoil physics or blocking with a manifested arm even play a part?

I think Matt unintentionally stumbled onto revealing to their audience that the MOA fight is, at least from a gameplay point, flawed. Yea there's a design strategy for defeating MOA but Matt won the fight, quite easily too, by just melee stun locking her. I was actually kinda stunned because I've never taken the time to melee her, always with firearms.

And if she isn't stun locked, she is programmed in the same way that most human enemies with firearms in the series are, that boss firearms become melee weapons themselves if you're close enough. So MOA's sub machine gun is actually just as deadly as a pipe if you lame it out like Matt did.

They're games. They aren't perfect. It's a programming problem in many other games. Bosses and enemies with firearms can be lamed out if you can just get close enough to them.
There was a SIGNATURE here. It's gone now.
