I love how they play the song with Eric Clapton in the background like... No biggie... Let me just come in for a quick solo in the middle ok? Cool



Edit: Yeah pretty much this lol... From the Youtube comments:
You know you've made it when Eric Clapton plays backing guitar for you.

BAE OVER BAY

Strafer is right

The whole story is as good as pointless if you don’t save Chloe

And if you were role-playing as Max it makes zero sense for her to turn around and give up at the last second

It’s a M Night Shaymalan level twist to save the Bay

And I mean The Happening level Shaymalan[/


I'm glad at least some folks here know the truth.

They should actually play Contra 3.

I am sure they are Contra'd out but there's not a whole lot of non-Contra games that fit the mold of that series.
Metal Slug is right there.

You’d need something that is arcade-y enough to make you want to complete it in one credit and short enough that The Run shouldn’t be much more than 30 minutes. It rules out something like Gunstar Heroes, but it does lead to Metal Slug.

How is the whole story pointless? If you choose bay it's a thematically tied to how no matter how hard you tried and what lengths you go to, sometimes to just can't save someone.

Meanwhile bae is like, what?

Welp I just

Y'all monsters who don't get thematic arcs.
What, so should that rapist still be roaming around? Should all those bullies be allowed to stay unimpacted? Let that girl commit suicide?

The series spent half of its development emphasising how worthless 99% of the Bay was, so forgive me for going Bae.

I'm not against remakes but this Disney live action thing seems like the most transparent banking on nostalgia with little artistry, the movies don't even look all that wonderful or exciting to me.

Before I saw Into the Spider-Verse they played the teaser trailers for Dumbo, Aladdin and Lion King back to back and it really highlighted how bland these movies are especially in relation to the genuinely fun, refreshing and visually dazzling movie I was about to watch.

Disney will keep making them because they’re super profitable. And likewise, you won’t see anything beyond a bog standard adaptation because the audience wants it as bland and similar to the animated versions. It is what it is.

Like, the Netflix Jungle Book movie wasn’t great, but it was a hell of a lot more interesting than the live action Disney Jungle Book from a few years back. But the Disney one was vastly more successful because that’s what people want.
