  1. Hey Ross,one thing I'd like to point out that's a bit annoying. The site's feed sends me emails a day after you make these things or more. I'm subbbed on youtube,so I see the videos right away, but sometimes i think there's a new video and it's "oh, that's the one from 2 days ago"

  2. Yeah, Freeman was pointing out constantly the design choices from the developers. Which make sense, kind of, from a video game design standpoint but make no sense in real life. However, once he gets to the airboat, things should start making more sense. Route Kanal was always the weakest, IMHO, part of the game.

    What's your favorite part? I loved the water hazard level as a kid, and ravenholm is a classic, but I'm starting to really appreciate nova prospekt a lot more from my replays. Sending in the antlions to fuck up the combine at the entrance and backing them up with crossbows was really fun


    Also as to my original point, having freeman stare the answer to the puzzle in the face 3 times was just a massive cocktease for me wanting to see the next part. I hope Ross doesn't make him waste anymore time there.

  3. If I may offer one small bit of constructive criticism: Having Gordon spend minutes pointing out the absurd architecture gets a little draining. Route Kanal makes no sense from an engineering standard, but I think FM episodes are great when there's a lot more variety. Thats all.


    Also, if there's one thing I really want to see in FM2 is "original content" like, for example, if in FM you animated Freeman capturing a soldier and interrogating him for the reason why they were shooting him, and thats how he found out instead of him being in the dark for a good part of it. The Mike and Dave reference was great, more stuff like that pls :) In FM2 you could have Freeman capture a random CP unit and get some actual answers. because once Freeman finds out just how fucked Breen is it's gonna be really fun.

  4. Seems like a lot of the time you promise more videos than one a month, they get delayed. My advice was to do either FM or RGD for a particular month, announcing it after the last one comes out. That was I can I imagine it might be better for both you and us.

  5. Just wanna ask if anyone knows, but is there ANY reason on a multidisk game to spread the game content randomly across five disks, rather than sequentially? It almost seems like they wanted to do a modern RAID array, but couldn't because RAID works by having ALL phyisical drives accessible at once... as well as RAID not existing back then.

  6. This episode's release coincides with my graduation from 2-year college. (it was the 25th, but still) I started watching at episode 22, so I was in middle school when I became away of this show. That's how long it's been part of my life.

  7. For anyone who wants to play, I STRONGLY recommend downloading the map pack from Ross's link. UT2004 will try to download the map for you, but either their servers are tied to 2004 speed or something, or the protocol is broken, because it takes like 30 minutes to download them from the game itself.

  8. Think he'll meet Kleiner in the next episode, whenever that is, or will it be two episodes? Also I REALLY hope he can make time to do these once every two months, or even once a month. I know, I know, he HAS to finish the movie, but he's made one, so maybe he can find time?
