What's frustrating is how Kyle wants everything to be easy no puzzles just straight to the 17th floor in an elevator. Do u wanna play a game or watch a movie?

Last episodes was one of their better ones actually, mainly because it was so action packed they didn't have time for random chit chat, which made them pay a bit more attention to what's happening.

I can already see them not conversing with Shenhua at Guilin, and just choosing 'let's hurry on" every time.

I have not watched yet but I take that as a way to only fill the silence, like a big baby struggling against a hard boss.

I've confidence that they will listen to main of the Shenhua & Ryo's conversation.

Yeah the episodes are getting better again imho. They do seem to be paying more attention to the game now.

Here is the latest episode for those who haven't seen it

When you're trying to follow the dialog and your buddy presses "skip":

Recent episode... the elevator puzzle. I figured this shit out when I was 9, c'mon guys. Didn't take them as long as I was fearing, but fucking hell.

I thought this episode was pretty fun. That rooftop battle is always entertaining to watch. They seemed to have enjoyed it too.

Kowloon's ending was extremely climactic, I was shocked to realize that it wasn't the end of the game back when I played it. Too bad they spoiled it for themselves by reading the strategy guide...

I wonder if they will like Guilin... It might just be my favorite part about the game personally. But they do seem rather impatient and just want to get to point B... They might ruin it for themselves if they start rushing through it and skipping the optional dialogue... Hell, I can see them skipping the non-optional dialogue as well.

Kyle was spamming elbow assault in pretty much every fight, he even made Chunyan and Doh Niu look easy. Surely this game has a sliding difficulty level, as in when you fail numerous times the game makes free battles easier? I do not remember the fights being so forgiving.

Skipping and doing hurry on. By God is it infuriating. It's my favorite part of any game and I cannot watch this without actually get mad.

Yes, but elbow assault is still OP as fuck (a ton of damage, fast attack/recovery and easy to do/spam).

Surprisingly they're liking guilin, I don't get mad at them for skipping some dialog, while it's nice, it gives some foreshadowing and so on, the writing on Shenmue was never spectacular (maybe they can find some great scriptwriters for 3).
