It's pretty funny. Something about his ignorance and unwillingness to attempt to understand vidya actually makes for good reviews. He points out a lot of problems with video games that other people might overlook.
This. His segments are of a clueless simpleton, but that affords him the opportunity to say something relevant whether he truly realizes it or not.
Also "QUICK, name our second president"
Shit's hilarious, yo.
It's pretty dumb. Just publishers thinking they can sell to whoever the fuck even watches late night talk shows. Sometimes he'll make a funny observation sure.
If good is a woo-pi-di-doop and bad is a whomp-whomp I give Clueless Gamer a high-dee-high-dee-ho. Preorder now at on xbawx.
I haven't found Conan funny since Late Night.
Call me a hipster, but something about that time slot and platform just worked. I lost interest as soon as he did the Tonight Show, and the TBS show doesn't look appealing at all.
You know, I think once you get that earlier time-slot you have to be funny in a much broader way to appeal to more people. They have these late shows down to a science... I have no doubt that they have a whole different approach to comedy when they go on earlier.
A younger hipper crowd stays up for the very late shows, but the Tonight Show timeslot is pretty much the entirety of America before they go to bed, so they have to write the kind of comedy that can make Joe Anybody chuckle a bit as he gets sleepy for bed.
>something about that time slot and platform just worked
It could be that he was trying to send as much crap under the radar as he could and the combination of a late timeslot but network oversight gave him the impetus he needed to be truly creative.
I personally really like Conan even though he's a shark like the rest of them.
His observations are pretty spot on, despite him playing very few games. I also like the nonsense scores he does at the end.
Also we both
graduated from the same High School albeit about 30 years apart
>making fun of Kevin Spacey's glazed lifeless eyes in CoD, a problem in many games that reviewers tend to gloss over for whatever reason
>laughs uncontrollably at Press X to Pay Respects
He's pretty amazing in my book.
I loved the Brawl and the Halo one where he points out how fucking lame it is that the dude can tell you every single nintendo character but not the second president, or that anyone gives a shit about the Halo story when its just a shitty contrived excuse to shoot stuff.
Yeah, because those aren't Japanese words you fucking dolt. Any other brilliant opinions you want to shit out?
I watched part of one video.
The WASD controls were being explained and he tried to be funny saying "oh that makes sense. W for F-F-FORWARD" etc.
Yes, Conan. The movements keys should be FBLR. That makes sense. You're so funneh.
I haven't watched his show in a couple years, it feels weird to see him still doing the same jokes
>that and the crowd reaction
It was fucking glorious
>constantly perving at Lara
Not that I can blame him.
Best bit was when he saw that Kevin Spacey was in the CoD
