Wonderkarpyeah. even being pro gg, I still dont boycott. Its stupid. I still go to Kotaku. Though I have a BS filter up. But I am addicted to their deals. 11/26/2014 - 9:36am
MaskedPixelanteI dunno, it looks like a Modern Warfare clone. Probably because the link you posted links to a screencap from Modern Warfare 2.11/26/2014 - 9:34am

Matthew Wilsonthey know if they dont, someone will.11/25/2014 - 8:40pm
Sora-ChanIt's a HBO show, which to be honest, considering it's HBO, it's actually surprising they even put any up on youtube.11/25/2014 - 8:36pm
Andrew EisenI imagine they hope the clips they do host (some of which are rather long) are enough to entice viewers to watch the show on whatever channel it airs on.11/25/2014 - 5:54pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's odd that these videos are missing from the official Last Week Tonight page.11/25/2014 - 5:51pm
