Conan O'Brien will have the first review of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on his show tonight.
If I was the developer I would put these reviews in my ads, more credible than IGN and Gamespot
Hell of a lot funnier too... in-terms of viewers, he's technically the biggest Videogame 'journalist' on Earth. It was his 'review' of 'Tomb Raider' that sold me the game... his reactions to the death animations are hilarious.
Or the Tonight Show. I like them both. Conan a bit whackier and Jimmy is a bit more serious b/c he's an actual avid gamer. Glad they are up on their modern culture.
@joab777 I would agree to a certain extent about Jimmy, but I find he barely talks about video games now since Microsoft threw their dirty money his way. Each time I watch his show and I see the guest wait in his "xbox lounge" it makes me cringe. Good on Microsoft on noticing that Jimmy is popular with the youth (gamers) and having their brand associated with him is a plus for them, but I would've rather he had not took that money, so he could still objectively say his real opinions on up coming games. He won't be inviting naughty dog to show a uncharted demo and force them to wait in the "xbox lounge" lol! I love Jimmy, but after selling out his famous bit with Justin Timberlake to apple and now selling out with Microsoft with the "xbox lounge" I'm afraid we might never know what he really thinks about the latest gadgets and games.... I guess we still have Conan even though I don't think he plays much of anything. Lol
Same with me for Tomb Raider. That one was ridiculously funny.
@Fries Couldn't agree more. Gaming journalism keeps getting less and less about the games, and more and more about industry politics. By the way, do i need to know the backstory to play Witcher 3? Ive never played the first two.
It helps, but no you don't really need to. Better off watching gameplay on youtube. Not too much watching in my opinion.
thanks. I am trying to stay away from anything related to Witcher, I want to be completely surprised. I don't even want to know what the game looks like. But i was worried that the story is something i ought to know.
This is exactly what is needed for both sides. For developers, offering up their games to a party that isn't suspected of favoritism, corruption or outright "pay to review" is ideal. And for late night, this kind of exclusivity keeps the show relevant and will pull in more views to an already-growing audience. Kudos to both, I'll be watching.
But the demos on those shows can be enhanced like Forza 5 was. YouTube is a pretty solid source but you still have to look around first and the quality is a little below what it will be (but better than it being better so I'm pleasantly surprised should I buy the game) Conan's reviews are hilarious though, I'll watch them for gameplay too :)
im suppose to take this serious....unless he played the whole freaking game....no
The skit is called the "Clueless Gamer", you're not suppose to take him seriously.
They're so funny! Looking forward to this.
You're asking whether you should take a review from a late-night comedy show seriously? Are you serious? One of the reasons why his "reviews" are "good" is because he's not a gamer. He doesn't give a f*** and his 'scores' are just about as respectable as any other serious reviewers out there with a 10 point decimal system like IGN. All their scores are really just arbitrary numbers. They don't mean anything. They can't sit there and tell me that a game that got a 9.9 deserves .1 percent more or less than what they give and actually mean something.
Luckily u don't have to. It's TW3 and it's gonna rake in the 10's and 9.5's. I'm already saying it will be one of the highest rated meta critic games. Actually, does meta critic count this review.
Isn't his whole thing Clueless Gamer where some fat dude who has played the game actually plays it and he sits there doing stupid stuff or not caring about the game in general? Last I checked, you can't call it "the world's first review" you morons
I take it humor school isn't going well?
Same.. Bubs up
Haha. Awesome. +bubs to you guys, too!
He does play the games...
"Fat dude" its Conan O'Brien. And to top it off he is really tall and skinny.
I'll definitely be checking this out. At the very least I'll probably get a few chuckles out of it.
Wish he still wrote for the Simpson's.
That's actually really interesting, didn't know that :) do you know when he stopped? The Simpsons lost its humor a while back, and while I never followed it closely I looked at an IMBD chart showing viewer ratings over time and you can see the distinction between seasons. I wonder if he was what made it pop, he's a hilarious guy!
https://simpsonswiki.com/wi... Through Seasons 3-5 and Season 9 having different roles/jobs.
Can't wait to watch this. No doubt in my mind that The Witcher 3 won't score in the 90's for metacritic. GOTY contender for sure.
I wouldnt check it out it will be spoiler heavy, and he dont take the game seriously look on his other reviews first. Its like leting a 2 years old play a game and trow in few jokes thats it.
I love Conan. At least he admits to being a clueless gamer. Jimmy Fallon is still trying to convince us he's a gamer.
Dont need reviews if you played the first 2.
Just sucks he had to play it/see it in 900p/30fps :( sucks that microsoft paid the company to show it on their inferiour machine.
Yes because people are going to see the difference in 180p watching this on their TV, through someone else's TV... Good luck with that.
@bigjohn221 really? In the words of the Joker "why so serious?". Just enjoy the comedy and laugh a little.
Lol @ Conan's reaction to the sex scene.
You can tell the other guy was kind of frustrated with him repeatedly pressing A to talk to that chick.
I usually want to choke my friends who do stuff like that at my place.
here's the link if you want to see the video: http://teamcoco.com/video/c...
One of the best he's ever done. I was dying.
Not a review you can take any deciding factors from though is it, we will still have to wait my friends, not long now.
That was so funny, however there are some spoilers in the video. Watch at your own risk.
That was fuuuuuny, if I hadt seen any videos of the game I would say it didt help to sell it to me.
