Why Nova!? WHY!?

posted by HiggsBoson2142 on - last edited - Viewed by 839 users

I was just browsing Youtube today, seeing Tobuscus's reactions to the Walking Dead, which I stopped after Episode 1 because he never took anything seriously. Then I somehow got to UberHaxorNova, whom I also hadn't seen before because of his lack of maturity. That's where everything goes horribly. I got to Episode 4, and he was at the Bell Tower. Before I know it, he DROPS Ben. That was a sight I NEVER wanted to see! Why Nova?! He didn't even hesitate! I am now depressed!

  • I really like Nova, he's one of the better LPers (imo). I wasn't really surprised that Nova dropped Ben... Nova's biggest goal was to get smooches from the ladies (Lilly and, more importantly for Nova, Carley). Ben is the direct cause for Lilly leaving the group and Carley getting shot so connect the dots, hehe.

    I know you're pro-Ben and I mean no harm but you got to admit, Ben is a pretty big fuck up. It shouldn't really come off as a surprise if someone drops him, especially from a more insensitive LPer... Well then again I'm in the same boat as you, when I'm watching a LP of The Walking Dead and the person saves Doug instead of Carley I instinctively just stop watching the series. It's probably because one of the highlights, for me at least, is the LPers reaction to Carley's death... albeit I could get my kicks out of people's reactions over Doug's death but, I don't know, Carley reactions tend to be a lot more funny in my opinion.

  • I suddenly feel the urge to replay TWD for the specific reason of dropping Ben....

  • I fucking hate every Walking Dead let's play.
    I'm subscribed to Toby and when he started playing it, he instantly knew when everything bad would happen going "Oh no, this is bad" and kept foreshadowing that the St. Johns were cannibals.
    I never saw it coming, so I don't think anyone on their first playtrough would just find out they are cannibals.
    And by the way, do not start any flamewars now.

    Well, Andy and Brenda seemed normal, but you have to admit that Danny is pretty creepy. And when you find that room in the barn you need no other clues to tell they're cannibals.

  • ....Death to Ben! WHY Do you love Ben? ONE REASON?!

    ...(Make it Three)

  • I watch Nova too,and now,when I played 5'th episode..I wanted Novs not see how Ben stood up for himself..

  • I'm no fan of Toby. Or Pewdie. Or Nova. They're all annoying as hell with their affectations, mannerisms and worst of all their voices. Cry (ChaoticMonkey) is OK though since he's quiet and laid back.

    But I'll say this.

    While Toby is definitely unwatchable in the early parts of his playthrough, by Episode 5 it's gotten to him. In the scene with the Stranger he's as defensive of his choices and invested in Clem's well-being as anyone I've seen. And though he tries to play it off as laughing at the end, he sure sounds legitimately torn up when the credits and "Take Us Back" start rolling. It is a work of fiction after all, and one can only cry about it for so long (in front of an audience no less) before becoming self conscious and embarrassed.

    The same was true of Pewdie. As annoying as I find him I really felt bad at his final breakdown. Here's a guy who loved Clem wholeheartedly and without reservation, and I have to admire that.

    However I reserved my greatest fury for the crew of "Video Games Awesome Live." The player on that show (who's name escapes me) was so eager to kill of Duck I became livid with rage. I thought I'd finally found a cold-hearted group of SOBs who the game wasn't going to get to. Boy was I wrong. By the final scene he was tearing up as much as anyone, and during their credits discussion he was still haunted by the fact he had left Duck hanging.

    So don't start at the beginning with these guys. Start with Episode 4 so the game has had time to work its witchcraft and get into their hearts. Then you'll see their human side come out.

  • I watch Nova's videos sometime and he's pretty funny. Just a normal obnoxious guy fucking around in games.

    Pewdie is just fucking annoying. He pretty much creates fads (or catchphrases rather) and make stupid voices and that's why his audience is mostly 9-13 year-olds.

    I watched Toby like 2 years ago and while he can be funny he got annoying pretty fast too.

    Agreed! It wasn't just one of them, they all despised Duck. Then when his fate arrives they actually start to like him. Remarkable how this game can turn your emotions around so much.

  • Gotta say, I don't know who any of these people are that you're talking about. Are there really people who spend all their time playing video games and then posting their commentary and reactions on youtube?
