    • Чувак, без обид, но завязывай с английским юмором. Возможно, англичане от этого в восторге, но ты же не только для них снимаешь, надо полагать? Наверняка тут большинство (смотрят этот ролик) не из Англии. Жаль, что ты видео снимал для казуальных игроков. Ну уж совсем, как-будто для школьников 10-15 лет или домохозяек. Рассказываешь не плохо, но настолько поверхностно, насколько это вообще возможно. Мог ведь углубиться. Я не имею ввиду то, что тебе нельзя озвучивать, а то, что можно - оно тоже всё было поверхностное. Если правильно запомнил (видео смотрел пару часов назад) консоль у тебя неделю. И это все, что ты нам хотел рассказать? :((

    • Xbox is beating their war drums and they sound out a dirge of inevitable victory in the console wars. The subscription wars have begun, and so far, Xbox is the the only faction capable of fielding an army (GamePass). I’m also really looking forward to playing Starfield on GamePass.
