    UPDATE – A NEW BUILD WAS PUSHED AND THE MEANINGLESS AI CLUES HAVE BEEN OBLITERATED. They’ve apparently had this build “a while” but test thoroughly hence the sudden release.
    THE LIST –

    The “hello, my name is Moses, what is your name?” Over the radio followed by a “oh god, he’s found another corpse” is both deeply unsettling and excellent storytelling

    Mandy is taking this spooky season very seriously. 2 horror game reviews in 2 weeks and it’s not even October.

    “Heaven is real and it’s also Amazon prime” I’m not sure I was ready for that statement despite it being a stasis video

    • Langton Industries says:

      Rather shallow version of heaven.

    • Ray Anderson says:

      As a Christian myself, I think that’s legitimately the most terrifying concept I can conceive of.

    • Sugewin says:

      That’s easily the scariest thing I’ve heard recently.

    • Lorenzo Pagani says:

      that sentence filled me with such overwhelming dread I need a drink at 10am

    • Dreyri says:

      It would have been scary if a material implant transferring your “consciousness” into a virtual reality seemed even remotely, logically possible. Same with SOMA.
      Seriously, it’s like game developers just read Descartés once and never look back. Never learning about the fact that the entirety of european philosophers, including nobility like the princess of Bohemia, essentially dogpiled on the guy over how nonsensical his dualism is.
      Also, it doesn’t make sense. Assuming god does not exist, which this game implies. Do you really die if your “consciousness” is just transferred into another virtual world which is ultimately based in physical(non-idealist) reality? Isn’t that just immortality? If they can transfer consciousness why aren’t they creating biomechanical bodies for that consciousness?

    “Grief is the final, most painful and purest expression of love.” I was not expecting to find solace here of all places, that line hits really hard as of now, but, in a good way, thanks.

    The Balenciaga bit fucking killed me. So true.

  7. DemonBlanka says:

    Calaban reminds me in a way of Sovereign from ME1. Inscrutable intelligence that views itself as so beyond humanity but still full of those so familiar emotions, and the voice is so damn close.

    • Rafael 'Fig' Figueiredo says:

      Funny how this channel covered enough games to make a pantheon of AI gods from it, from Durandal to Lowry

  8. Heisenberg says:

    3 uploads in 4 weeks gotta be the most consistent Mandalore has been in 11 years

  9. Default_7 says:

    Literally just finished watching the first Stasis video damn this is a blessing

    The callout about the visual elements as a statement of author intent immediately followed by the direct quote from the art book had me in stitches.
