Is Blacklist good? I've never played it because it seemed like such a departure from Splinter Cell but this video makes it look pretty fun.
Yeah, it's pretty good.
You can play it as a "real" stealth game as well but it is kinda easy because you get basically unlimited ammo so you can just tranq people left and right if you want. I played it only using the tranq gun very sparingly and had a ton of fun with it.

Edit: You can obviously also play it as a straight up action game which is also fun

Best stealth action game ever, IMO. As to difficulty and approach you can kinda do whatever you want. It makes a ton of smart decisions about scoring and enemy awareness and yes, it lets you execute some extremely cool things with a little bit of planning.

Gameplay wise it's fun and fine, everything else fucking sucks. The buddy sidekick Briggs was awful and the story was almost as forgettable as Double Agent. I also remember the Blacklist mode (Spies Vs Mercs) being so disappointing compared to Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theories.

I wonder how long Abby is going to wait until bringing up Ellen again, she should set a reminder on her phone. She should be fine after maybe 6 months.

I’m listening to FATT and
something big and scary is happening and Fero’s like “what should we do?” and without saying anything Hella decided to just pick up a beer bottle and throw it at a bird-cop and he fell and he died
this is probably the hardest I’ve laughed in a few days
that moment was amazing

Hella going for it, Fero not even knowing how to fucking react after and going "did you know that guy???", the whole thing was such a beautiful mess

moon's falling, guess I gotta uhhhhhh pick up a bottle and. whoops.

This spongebob game is alright but doesn't really need a full playthrough, there's lots of better games they haven't played.

lol Brad just keeps bringing up sitcom dads dying, first the dad from Alf now the dad from Frasier
I mean anyone who played a dad in a sitcom back in the 80/90s is going to be like 90 now.

Just noticed that Abby has a short Twitter thread about the Ellen stuff (this may have prompted the initial Ellen talk here, idk):


It's a good read.


This is, like, the one time I've really appreciated that GB Twitter feed thing they have on the site.

Thought about reporting it but then shrugged because Twitch is just gonna pull a Twitter.

Rules only exist for everyone else.

Satan bless this world.

Posting a tweet just to make fun of Cate Blanchett’s husband for how he looks was super nice.

This is insane. Check out the Kickstarter...it’s one of those weird games where you just control different types of dragons.

I'm more weirded out that you said " it’s one of those weird games where you just control different types of dragons" like that's a thing that exists. Is that genre like pony/horse games, but for dragons?
