    I'm just glad I got to kill Hugh several times on record.

    Gisp and I were dedicated healing machines + chops' heal waves from crags.
    I thought the defense was hosed when we all fell under the stairs.. Who could have called that it was probably what saved us.
    I was laughing like a maniac once I realized that this Onos was hitting the jackpot.. I vaguely recall someone yelling "they doing have any welders!!" :-D

I have to say though, while having banter in a gamespot livestream is cool, I felt it was a bit too much near the middle. Got better near the end, but before that it probably would have been better to focus more on the game than on Charlie's abs.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    It was an interesting situation, you could see 2 generations of media experience in one room. While it is interesting enough for the younger generation to just watch someone play a game and comment his actions (represented by Hugh), even if it's goddamn minecraft lol, Charlie's (and my) generation thinks that videos are more for giving information and tell interesting developer stuff. Or making reviews. Or have any kind of continuous thread of giving more information that you can't get when playing the game yourself.
    One could see that when Charlie asked 'Wait, is it boring for people right now, or...'.
    While I was a little mithered by Hugh always interrupting something interesting Charlie was about to explain, it seems to be really that generation kind of thing. The 'Let's play'-phenomenon ^^

    EDIT: Also the point with the pre-loading.
    -Charlie: 'Well, it's not really that important'
    -Hugh: 'Oh we are so sorry guys, we can't give you that, it's so important'
    -Charlie: 'It is...?'

    I also don't know why someone needs the game 30 minutes earlier.
