I never liked the skit humor they do, it never lands for me. Excited for the actual marathon to start tho.

In general I like it because itís a call back to the earlier days of GDQ when it was as much as anything a showcase of the most awkward people in existence.

They changed the game when they made people stop bringing stuffed animals and body pillows.

Nah. There was one year when technical difficulties led to the pre-show not being able to be shown on stream and was posted to Youtube instead.

So I remember last GDQ they said they wanted AGDQ to be in person. Not surprised it isn't, but when was the decision made to shift to online again?

Nioh 1 and 2 have a lot of gameplay elements from souls games with added Diablo like loot system. So yeah, naked with powerful weapons

When the purple Twitch icon is on, I assume it shows their Twitch handle (sometimes it's different than screen handle)

Nioh/Nioh 2 are like Souls with more fluid combat and Diablo-ish loot system and skill trees.

Nioh is like someone said, hey, Barudak, we know you weren't a huge fan of the direction souls games went, what if we went in a direction you liked even less? Thats right, gently caress on off

They had to double back on that like a month later. Around the time the Omicron variant started spreading like wildfire IIRC.

I want to say that it was a bit before that? I might be wrong. I know that it wasn't long after SGDQ that they were like "oh, this... this isn't gonna be better by January, let's go ahead and make the call".

Unless I'm completely out of the loop Omnicron wasn't really a thing globally until like 2 months ago so it would of been pretty last minute to cancel based on that.
