Original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjTa_x3rbJE
  • "Ladies and gentlemen, my name is TotalBiscuit. I'm here to ask and answer one simple question: W-T-F is Day One: Garry's Incident?" [Beat] "Garry with two R's, so you know he's serious."
  • "You hear them? Everyone instantly died. And I have no idea why."
  • "Behold: my amazing fighting technique, passed down from generation to generation in the illustrious Garry line. Anyway, as I was saying…"
  • "Oh look, everybody instantly died again! What the hell was that? What killed me?"
  • "What?! Where the hell did that come from?!" … "Behold! The worst textured panther in the history of video games!"
  • "What the hell killed me?! I had half health! Why did I just immediately die?! I don't understand what's happening!"
  • "Maybe it has quick save?" [Silence.] "…No. Of—Of course, that would be asking too much."
  • "You better save regularly if you intend to play this, 'cause you will just…die. From anything! At random! With no prior warning!"
  • "I'm pretty sure that macaw is also…up to no good…"
  • "Can I… WHAT?! Whaaaaat?! I hit him five times—three times in the back and he doesn't even know that I'm here!" [laughs] "Why is this game?! I'm not even gonna ask what is this game!"
  • "What?! Now he realizes?! Oh—screw everything about this! I'm sorry; I can't take another minute of this dreadful thing!"
  • [groan] "I—It is—What is it with this year and awful video games?! We've had Ride to Hell: Retribution, and we've had this, and I don't know which is worse."
  • "Behold! The Floating Aborigine Tribesman thingy! And his—"
  • "This is a full release…! This is a full release! It is not Early Access! This is not a beta, guys! Seriously, I am not lying to you! And this is after about three patches! This game is a f**king disaster!"
  • "It is a wasted concept [by] a studio that evidently does not have the talent necessary to create something of this complexity, and my god did they screw it up! This is this year's Revelations 2012! And more to the point—it's even got a Revelations 2012 armgun! It's—[beat]—god…! It is…just…horrendously bad!"
  • "This monkey is running backwards and forwards! This tribesman right here—" [starts swinging his machete in an attempt to get the tribesman's attention] "Hi."
  • "Let me guess: if I stand up, he's gonna see me immediately?" [stands up; tribesman attacks him] "Of course."

  • "So, if all you do with WTF Is…? is to figure out whether or not a game is worth buying, you can just stop watching right now. It isn't. You should avoid it like the plague, because it is absolutely terrible. If you're curious as to why, however…" [chuckles] "Oh, I will show you."
  • [demonstrating the pickpocket mechanic] "I kid you not. That's actually Garry's Incident level of terrible."
  • [watching a character's ridiculous idle animation] "Who—? Nobody—Nobody does that!"
  • "Are you ready for the jumpscare? …No, you're not."
  • "I now present to you the fairest maiden—what the hell is wrong with your face?"
  • "Oh, fair maiden… If only I could fix the voids that exist in your fair…visage… Ugh!" [laughs incredulously] "That's one hell of a makeup accident."

  • "'What do you think you're doing?! Helps to have a map!' Also, 'Can you find the missing parts of my face?'"

  • "…Why am I even whispering? It's not like they're actually gonna hear me."
  • "…So really, it's just y—" [enemy player kills him] "—oh, dammit!—you, your gun, and your friends."

The Co-Optional PodcastEdit

Episode 56Edit

Original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2_gzbG-nLQ

Nick "Babylonian" Robinson: Yeah, just put a timestamp in the description that's like: "Click here if you don't give a sh*t about anime."
TB: [amused] "Click here to avoid swimming anime"! "And Titanic references"!

TB: [talking about Assassin's Creed: Unity's subpar optimization] Do you remember when they released the minimun specs [for the game] and everyone thought, "They're having a laugh, aren't they? That can't possibly be real!"

[At that moment, Dodger's call abruptly cuts out.]

TB: [sees it] Whoa, we lost Dodger. She can't possibly be real, either, but nevermind. I'm sure she'll come back eventually.

TB: …guess who likes looking at wall textures? [waves his hands] Meee! They're terrible! They look awful!

TB: …sometimes, they change outfits! And hairstyles! And hats! Out of nowhere! I [ran into] this guy who had a grey wig; [he] was a judge of some description. I get up to him, and he's wearing a f**king flak cap and I'm pretty sure he just gender-shifted! It was ludicrous! I had character models with holes in them! I walked up to this guy; there's a hole where his breast is supposed to be! What the hell happened to you?! My god, the French Revolution was a tough f**king time! This guy had his pectoral burned out! I can see right through it! It's horrifying!

    [TB opens door. Cue jumpscare.]
    "AHHHHH! Jesus Christ. F**k! I hate you so much right now! God-dammit! Anyway!"

This video is no longer available: The Day One[:] Garry's Incident IncidentEdit

Original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfgoDDh4kE0
  • "Critique exists to protect consumers from unscrupulous companies, and is a necessary part of our society. Wild Games Studio disagrees."
  • "'We protected our copyright because TotalBiscuit has no right to make advertising revenues with our license.' Stephane Woods is lying, and here's why."
  • "Stephane replied within 24 hours and gave us a review code. These are the facts. It's unthinkable that Stephane could possibly believe that we had no intention of monetizing the content."
  • "I think you can see this is not an innocent developer being attacked and abused by some YouTuber out to profiteer from their hard work. This is a developer who has repeatedly acted in an underhanded way, and continues to do so to this very day. A developer that not only cannot take criticism, but actively goes out to censor it with the sole purpose of selling as many copies of their wretched disaster of a game as possible."
  • "Critique makes this industry better. But it's under attack. YouTube's policies allow for flagrant abuse of the copyright system to censor review and critique, and it has to stop."

Should you preorder video games?Edit

  • "We as consumers have the ability to stop this bullshit for good. And we're the only ones who can do that. Publishers aren't gonna do it. Devs aren't gonna do it. It's up to you: will you be part of that solution? Will you help fix this? Or will you continue to be part of the problem? I guess that's up to you."

WTF Research Stream for Nidhogg (feat. Genna Bain)Edit

Genna: No—What?! Okay, wait a minute—that's what you get for winning?!
TotalBiscuit: Yes, you are eaten by Nidhogg, the giant snake.
Genna: What kind of dumb game is this?!
TotalBiscuit: Well, it's the one where you are eaten by Nidhogg, the giant snake.

TotalBiscuit: Fight me! Fight me! Uh—don't fight me.

TotalBiscuit: Bullsh*t! TotalBullsh*t!
