Not to be mean because I love your videos. However, at 1:47 you say 18 deaths but the screen says 19 deaths. Comment?

@Girlfriend Reviews On another note: to one point in your video: I was on the fence but after your video, I gave Returnal a chance. Solid recommendation.
Girlfriend Reviews
Lol! That bugged us too. Matt didn't think to check his death stats till after he ran back in and died one more time 🙃

If you want a new favorite rouge like of all time play hades. It ain't super hard or long, fixes almost all the major problems with rouge likes and has an engaging story.

I’m watching this video and my daughter (6 years old) right by me died laughing at the “wittle baby” bit at 6:15. That was pretty great😂.

I know its sarcasm about beating this game in 18deaths, but this game relies heavily on luck. I got so luck it would put Dreams Minecraft Speedrun to shame. I beat the second and third boss throughout in my THIRD run, I suck as shooting games (only one I played is Last of Us). I had 300% HP and consistent 50-60% protection with huge damage buffs, the third boss which is considered hard was laughable easy and I intentionally got hit on purpose to see the cool particle effects, until i killed him out of boredom, once again I did not deserve that victory, I kept loosing to my way up-to the first boss by dumb mobs. Please don't count deaths as a measurement of skill in this game lol and just have fun.

24 deaths and about to give up, I finally beat phrike. 9hrs 34 minutes in, and I had the stupid regenerative parasite on that basically gives you 33% health if you get low. And the -2 seconds for the alt fire jeezus. I’m not a gamer. I’m a regular person experiencing what it’s like to be a gamer and gets frustrated. Gimme my diapers now

This is just an ad for Returnal... I'm having a hard time believing this a real review.
Girlfriend Reviews
That's probably because it's not a real review. Our catch phrase is literally "this isn't a review". It's a comedy video dude. Not a conspiracy.

I mean i don't usually hate Girlfriend Reviews, but Days Gone is a great game specially if you play it now. You just have to play a bit longer and do not stop at a couple of hours after you start playing it. Actually its easily one of my favorite games of all time. I played a lot of games believe me, since ps1 era until today. We don't always see an open world zombie game with great design and story these days.

Oh I'm sure the wonderful people that were able to explain to the angry community what a beautiful game TLOU2 was will now give a nuanced take on how games with a single selling point of "we're very hard and most of you will pay and never finish our game and if you're disabled you can just go f yourself from the start". Ok, let's press play and.... "GIT GUD SCRUBS!" Seriously guys! FML :////////
