Great video, This is the exact type or fun that I have when I go out shooting. I'm a large framed guy, and disabled, so not able to do the bows, even though I've always wanted to do them. Thankfully though, I can enjoy handguns and rifles at the range. I don't hunt as I can't do the eating of any animal thing, so I settle for targets, paper or different bottles. It's all great fun. Congrats on the new hobby:)

If this is from the Wipeout Developers, I'm sold:) I have no idea what caused the Sony people to decide to close down that studio, and it saddens me, because it's really the only industry where a group can be a part of your company for so long, and make great games that get great scores, yet if one of those new games comes out and doesn't reach some benchmark, or metacritic score, they are cut. It's sad, and it really bothers me, because they were one of my favorite companies from Sony. Every time a Wipeout game released, I got it, and played them like crazy. I've still got the Vita version and the PS3 version, it's a shame that they didn't think about releasing it again on PS4, because I wouldn't have taken five minutes before placing the order. But, if this is the same team, I'm glad that they have managed to continue making their games, and if I'm correct and read that the game is fully funded now from Kickstarter, then I'm happy that I'll be able to play this new game soon enough:) Thanks for the great memories guys, and can't wait to make new ones:)

Yeah, I agree with the guy on the video, this woman is a lunatic, and she has to be, to be super happy for what she thinks is the end times. She's nothing more than a racist religious fundamentalist psychopath.  It's painful that I have to live in a country with mentally ill people like this person, Michelle is painfully stupid.

Isn't it amazing that these teachers and that district moron are allowed to get away with this type of crap for so long simply because they feel entitled?

If there are any people who require psychiatry it is himself and fellow scientologists. Hail Lord Zenu! ROFL  His cults founder was so insane, he created his entire world around his ability to imagine fantastical worlds far far away,

lol, this poor guy was very sad. He's literally shown how poor his mind works, and just how horrible his education was. He may actually be mentally ill, because he didn't even show a second of doubt on what he was saying, as if it's so true that there is no need to consider it before spewing it up.  It's a video where I literally felt bad for the subject.  Wow

I wonder if I, a liberal, democrat, thats physically disabled, could hang out with Russel Brand and show him why even liberals love our guns. It's not as wild wild west as it seems. Yes, there are too many gun crimes, but in my opinion, if you take away the guns, the killers will find something else to use, like their car, or a fork, anything. The guns aren't the main issue, its that there are people who are sad, and alone and they feel like the entire world has turned them away. Taking the guns away is tantamount to taking cheeseburgers away from a fat man, there are other food items, it won't solve obesity. As for the Sarniev son, I don't know which is worse, I would hate both life in prison and the death penalty, so I have no ground to stand on there. Both would suck. He and his brother killed and injured too many people for no punishment though, so what the courts decide is what happens, they wouldn't have faced either penalty had they not decided to act out on their hate/anger, whatever reason they had.  But if there was a sad angle to this story was the mixing of the news on this death penalty, and trying to use it to paint a bigger picture that guns are not necessary for the general public. It's been over two centuries of guaranteed gun ownership laws, the general public is never going to give it up, its a lost fight, like the drug wars. There is no chance of victory there, because it's not just right wing republicans who love their guns. We began our love of guns when we grew up with Red Rider BB Guns, it's never going to leave our system as it has elsewhere, it just won't. I worked in Armed Security, and I know the difference a gun makes in a life or death situation, most people aren't going to sign that away. If anything, when anyone brings up murder statistics, all that does is solidify in the gun owners mind that they need a gun to be "safer", as your still not truly safe. The gun is just another defense barrier to some, and to a criminal, its just a tool, its not the mind behind the crime.  And trust me, I love Russell Brand, its no knock on him, its just that I don't think he gets it, our perspective that is. If he were ever in my area, I'd love to show him that guns aren't all used for crimes, sometimes, they are used for nothing more than a collection, or self defense. If we are to fix the problem with crime in the US, we need to focus on people who are screaming for help, not people who are just everyday people.

Hey Guys, the dudes in this video mention that herbalists sell the respec potion, but could not find it with any herbalists, The witch that gives you the lamp, and the talking box sells it in her house. I'm not sure how they missed her, but after you do the mission with the lamp, and go visit her as she invites you to visit her afterwards, she sells the potion there as well, she is the witch that helps Geralt when he does the fight with the first wild hunt guy, where you defend the witch from the wild hunt dogs while she breaks some spells during an ice storm spell. I am sorry for forgetting her name, as the game is off and I'm heading to sleep, but I wanted to help people find her so they can get the respec potion if they need it. Her house is south west of the bloody Barron castle if I'm remembering correctly, and may be marked with an herbalist marker once you explore that area. She is the same witch that helps Geralt look for Ciri/Siri? and has a romantic relationship option.  Good luck everyone:)  You can't miss her as she is a quest to find a witch where the villagers refuse to turn her in, as she's a good witch:)

Dude, seriously. People are telling you to get over things, because it's the mature thing to do. It isn't because anyone is necessarily taking his side. It's this way. If a grown man is in the store, and a baby talks up and calls you a poopy face. You don't look at the child and say, "Your a poopy face", you walk away. Because, your the adult. In this situation, people were telling you to get over it, because A. You definitely got upset by something that was clearly a childish joke. B. When you responded to the video, you were inviting hate from the other guys fans, because they could see that you were clearly upset by a childish joke, and you were also then making fun of him by talking about how fat he was, so they were hitting an equally low blow by making fun of you for your love of Transformers. It was just a tit for tat situation. 

As a side to the issue, I didn't ever say anything with the intention of demeaning you. I was saying it because I wanted to try to help you avoid further complications. So I know you weren't referring to me in the response video, but I feel that it's important to lay out my own reasoning behind my own advice. And when watching this response video, you went out of your way to hit him with your own low blow by making fun of him being fat. That was one of those generic blasts that spreads out to include other people. I myself am fat, and don't really see how it helped the situation to go ahead and spit on fat people in general if for no other reason than to find something to attack him with. And as far as calling him insane or mentally ill, that one can offend someone who is clearly suffering from mental illness or insanity, because if anything, he isn't insane, he's just crude, so the joke just seems to be hitting at or making fun of  people with mental issues. 

As for the apology, dude, seriously, he apologized.  Even if he did so and then continued to keep things in a joking mood, that was because he isn't going to stop his "character" to do a video where he acts completely straight face and say "I'm sorry", because if anything, that would literally come back and make your case look even worse. I know you may not feel that way, but think about it, again, use the poopy face analogy, if that baby were required by his or her parent to walk up to you, as the adult and deliver a serious apology, that alone makes the adult look even more childish because anything less would leave them feeling hurt. But worse, once you acknowledge that sending fans to his video page to attack him was probably the worst decision in the entire group of decisions, you continued to bash him as being mental.  That now comes off as being even more childish.  The challenge was in my opinion, nothing more than a way of trying to smooth things over in a way that fits the character, because it wouldn't work to switch to a straight face "anything". 

But the saddest part, for myself, is that you've decided to label this guy a degenerate. What that says, to me, is that if someone isn't an extremely straight lace, no foul language, no crude humor sort of person, you label them a degenerate. The idea of calling this guy a degenerate is that you've now labeled a "type" as being a degenerate, which means that other people that fit into that type are also a degenerate in your views. The problem there is that in those broad terms, I would also be a degenerate. I curse, I'm nearly forty years old, and I have only once in my life had someone younger than myself try to tell me that I need to clean up my mouth. Now, while I know that you've clearly let the emotion get the better of you in this case, others may feel that what you've done here is to belittle anyone who acts in the way that this guy does. Now, I can guarantee you that not only do some of your fans behave in a way similar to this guy, but there may actually be a large amount of your fans that act like this guy, so when you attack him and label his persona and behavior as that of a degenerate, your also by default labeling anyone else that does the same a degenerate.  This may end up loosing you some of your fans.

Now please, please understand that I am not trying to scold you. I am not trying to chastise you.  I am very simply trying to help you because I don't want to see you go through any of this awful crap.  From someone that knows, because I have people do the exact same thing to me, because I myself respond to people all the time, where I make broad generalized statements about people, because I am an atheist, and I make statements that are very loose and broad that attack people's viewpoints when they are christians.  I can't tell you how many times I hear something like, "So you said that that person is dumb, Are you saying that I'm dumb?"  To which I often time have to take the time to respond and say, Absolutely, Yes, I do think your dumb.  I had a girl, one of my best classmate friends from elementary school ask this very question when I said something to the effect of, "Anyone that believes that the bible is correct in everything and has no faults clearly hasn't read it, because a smart person would know the area's in the bible where it clearly says things that either contradict itself, or simply make no sense, and if that's your position, your dumb.  To which she just had to ask, "So what your saying is that you think that my family is dumb? As if that was going to back me up and force me to take some separate position, or where I would have to retract my statement for fear of saying anything negative about her "family". So I cleared it up by telling her, "Yes, I think your family is dumb, and retarded as well."  Just to be sure that she knew, if she thought that my response would change for fear of hurting her feelings on her family, she was wrong.  I mention this, because in the way that this girl thought I was belittling her family with my broad statement, which I absolutely was, in your case, your absolutely not, but there will be those who think you are.  Trust me, I get heat from this position all the time, and I defend it, because at the end of the day, I would rather that people know the truth, than think something that is wrong. In your case, I want to help you avoid heat for what you said in the video's, because while "I" know what you meant, there may be those that don't understand it, and yet others who don't care how you meant it, and are going to feel that you were taking a swipe at them when they had nothing to do with the situation. 

Trust me, Optibotimus, I absolutely love your video's. I had never seen one of that other guys video's. And while I understand that you may feel that I am trying to attack you for your actions, I am definitely not trying to do that. I am simply trying to help you see the mistake or misunderstanding in what the video's are doing or saying about you.  While the adult is supposed to take the high road, You abandoned the high road the instant you made the first video, because for you to do that first reply, you had to sink to that level to respond to it. Worse, you followed it up with a second video that looks just as bad, if not much worse because while the other guy saw that his fans defended him, and he decided to do what he does, which is to make a video in his style to reply to yours, you continued your attack and did so in an equally poor taste, by including the attacks on his mental health, and then followed that up with attacking him for being overweight, which there are just too many of us out here that fit that bill.  Look at Boogie2988 as an example, he makes video's with serious messages, and does an alternate character he calls "Francis".  His Francis character is obnoxious and horrible, but it's done in a humorous way, with humor intended in the character, even though it is an obnoxious personality.  I think that is the intention of that guy as well, his character may not reflect on who he is at all, but since it's his character, and that character is popular enough to get him all of those followers, he continues that character. It is simply not practical and seemingly entitled to think that this person is going to clean up his character to fit a mold that you would consider to be acceptable.  People were trying to get that point across, when they said that you needed to get over it, but they didn't explain it in a way that made the point in a non confrontational way. 

So at the end of it all, I am just trying to explain it so you can understand what it is that they are saying, or were saying. I am not trying to scold you. I hope that you understand it, and for my own mental health, I am going to drop it at this point, because I am not trying to beat a dead horse. I'm not trying to offend you or upset you. I was only trying to help you to see what was happening, so that you didn't end up with egg on your face.  I seriously hope you understand, because regardless, I am your fan, and the reason behind that is that I like your character. Your goal, which is to review something you love, which is Transformers, is something that I also love. I have loved them since I was a kid, and I still love them at 39. I don't care if people think that I'm a grown up and need to dump my toys, because if they don't like Transformers, they aren't forced to buy them. I do love them, and I continue to buy them, as long as they aren't combiner wars figures, because I seriously hate how cheap and awful they designed these figures, with hollow arms and hollow legs, horrible attachment pegs clearly visible on the chest with terrible hands and feet:)  Sorry, I just seriously hate these new figures, wow, did they go overboard with the cheap factor there.lol  I have been in awe that you've managed to acclimate to them, while I know you must secretly hate them at your innermost core.lol

Hey Optibotimus, don't sweat that guy. While I don't have issue's with cursing, since I do so myself, I'm 39, so I can.lol  What I can best say is this, I watch your video's because I love transformers, more than most I would assume. What I saw in the other guys video was extremely idiotic, because I, again, even though I curse;  when in public, and online, I treat people with respect.  The problem though is that this guys type, not only are they not going to be moved by your impassioned speech about his low levels of good taste, they are immediately going to show that he won again, as he got under your skin. It's irrelevant what he says, ignore it. I discuss atheism with people all the time, and think I've done a video on here as well, and if I could count the number of times a Christian has told me to kill myself, or die and burn in hell, I'd be a 80 before I was done. My own friends freak out and say idiotic things, and they are my friends.  Mind you, I tell them the same right back, but that's not here nor there.lol 

The point is just that in this type guys case, you are better off ignoring it, because it shows your a better man. And sadly, I want to be real with you, this video comes off very badly, as if it were crying about it, and I think that may be some of the majority who are giving it a thumbs down are trying to say.  Your best work is when you talk about the things you like, because that is exactly what your fans like. This video is bad in that it also shoots people over to that guys page, who probably never heard of him. I hadn't seen even one of his video's, and now, unfortunately, I have.lol  But worse, his video's may now appear on my list, and that would suck, because I would prefer to stay away from his humor. It was just soooo ear piercing in its annoyance levels, it sounded like he was doing some Jersey accent, maybe Italian, and then he twisted it into some ass of a character that I myself would never enjoy. But if there is one thing I know, there are going to be a ton of people who will. It's the reason we watch Rediculousness, to see others suffer a fall off a bike, or crash into a roof, it's that same side of people that feeds this guys viewership. 

Hell, even my seventy six year old mom and seventy eight year old dad love watching the Hodgetwins on youtube. And they do toilet humor as well, so it's amazing what people like. So don't sweat it, just ignore it. He is the one thinking of doing things to toys after all.lol  And any man that can dump on Transformers while liking a Wrestling figure as if it were polar opposites, is clearly not thinking straight. So like I said, don't worry about this guy, any emotion you waste is only feeding his ego. And worse, it makes you look bad. We are your fans, not his, so avoid sinking to his level. Trust me, it's not worth it:)

+John Garza this video had bad juu juu written all over it.  I know it bothered you, but his fans have a fair point, humor is humor. Look how everyone responded, its sucks to think about it this way, but were it not for this response video, there would be a ton of people not hating on each other, and innocent defenseless gay people would not get thrown into the mix:)

Hey Armoured, I'm a huge fan, and agree with you on a ton of your views, but there are supposedly trees that are several thousand years old, so it may be better to list those, instead of just saying that there are no trees that are nine thousand years old, they may think you mean that there are no old tree's:)  Here's a list I found that may help anyone needing to know how old they can get,
