    Fun fact: Resident Evil 4 has an adaptive difficulty system too; which is described similar to how it was claimed to work in Hellblade.

    ((Here's the Game Maker's Toolkit video on the subject if you're curious: https://youtu.be/zFv6KAdQ5SE ))

    Venmo is, like, the easiest thing to set up. Pls, Krispy. You just connect whatever bank account you want. Then, you can transfer all the money that has been sent to your Venmo account to your specified bank account, whenever you choose to.

    Also, I'm loving AvoidingThePuddle right now; seriously building up my Quan for Tekken 7, even though I only dabbled in Tag 2. I haven't watched the feed very often, so idk if you have, but I hope you play some more Tekken on stream, Brad!

    Damnit another podcast talking about PUBG. Ugh.

    On the serious side, I started playing it for the first time last week. Im having a similar experience that Nolan did spending so much time scavenging but not having fun.

    I tried avoiding combat because im new to PC gaming and the controls are already daunting to me because of it, so I figured I would stay away from experts as long as possible.

    Ill try jumping into firefights more from the start and hope that bumps up the fun. But as it is, i feel like Im going long periods not seeing people (maybe they are camping in bathrooms or something?) And its not really fun when I do because when you are shot, its almost immediate so you may not even realize someone is there.

    The idea behind it is cool and Ill keep trying it, but so far, Im not seeing the hype several hours in.

    Allow me to use my lurker expertise to help shine some light on the mistery of "when did Carlos actually show up on the feed".

    He started appearing somewhere around december 2009. He's been seen playing fatal frame along with Brad. He has also been seen attempting to beat BLACK, a ball shaped character on an xbox live arcade game that Brad really loved for like a week.
    Not much else is remembered about this streams, but he gained his world wide known fame around the first half of february 2010.

    He showed up to play some Demons souls along with Brad and created a character named Ramon. If you are interested in Ramon, we've come to learn that his favourite food is tequila and he likes the ladies. He went out drinking with another knight and killed him, then proceeded to knight himself.
    Not much else is known about Ramon, except that he was shit at camera controls.

    Last week i commented on how i felt about Horizon. Focusing on my issues with story/characterization/acting. Which Nick strongly disagreed with.

    I have now finished Horizon, and my feelings on the game did not improve. They deteriorated, but not because i completed it.
    What did change my perception of Horizon was that i played trough what i now consider to be the gold standard for human interactions in videogames. That game is called Uncharted 4.

    Horizon stats:
    Achievement completion percentage: 73
    Time played: 52 hours
    Rating: 2 stars
