Far Cry Primal and PewdiePie Feature On Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer

"That badger is a perve!"

24 Comments

YouTuber PewDiePie joins forces with late night talk show host and comedian Conan O'Brien in the latest Clueless Gamer segment featuring Ubisoft's upcoming open-world adventure game, Far Cry Primal. The resulting video sees the two play through certain sections of Far Cry Primal, leading to some interesting adventures with a pet badger, mammoth riding, and some rather misguided owl flying. You can watch the video in the embed below.

Conan recently tackled other big game releases on his Clueless Gamer segment including Fallout 4 and Doom, the latter of which brought on Super Bowl 50 contenders Von Miller of the Denver Broncos and Josh Norman from the Carolina Panthers.

Far Cry Primal is scheduled to release worldwide on February 23 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and March 1 for PC. The game is set in 10,000 BCE and introduces the ability to tame animals, a first in the Far Cry series. The game will have a day one patch that adds a new difficulty setting, as well as other gameplay fixes and tweaks. This patch is 564 MB on PlayStation 4 and 561 MB on Xbox One.

Those who preorder the game digitally on Xbox One will also get a free copy of Ubisoft's World War 1 adventure game Valiant Hearts: The Great War. The free game must be claimed before April 14.

We gave Far Cry Primal an eight out of ten in our review, praising the game's cohesive world and creative Beast Master abilities. To see what everyone else thought of the game, check out our review roundup.

In this video you can clearly see just how unfunny Pewdie is when next to a real comedian.

Not really sure why people get so wound up over someone on Youtube making a successful children's video game show. Of course it's loud and ridiculous...So were all the video game shows that were on when I was a kid. Good for him for making a buck playing video games. I know I wish I could do that.

I'm surprised they didn't make sure to have Conan see people having sex. Maybe they didn't want that associated with their game because parents and whomever else?

I got to know of the existence of this PewDoodie guy a few weeks back when they posted an article about him about being a great personality on youtube. I've seen several of his videos, I saw this clueless games episode, and I still don't understand what's the big deal with this guy, and how he became such a celebrity. There's nothing special of looking at this guy being moronic, acting stupid and being loud.

@Intocable: I think that kinda humour is just what most people watching gaming videos and streams want, or really any kind of humour heavy approach even if it is more mature humour. I prefer detailed discussion of the game, and when I go on Twitch those types of streamers usually have the least viewers. It's kinda the same all over, look at gaming sites like Gamespot, viewers like the funny stuff.

However more specifically on your nothing special point, yeah there probably were/are many others in the same style so I don't know how Pewdiepie managed to stand out, or maybe he was one of the first? Perfect timing, good business sense that perhaps other popular people lacked, some unknown luck factor, who knows :).

pewdiepie is a cool guy, guys. He doesn't shout in all of his videos. I'm not an avid viewer of his channel but I have seen some. Its just strange to see people call him an asshole just a few comments below mine. He has litterally never done anything to be considered an asshole. Conan is funny too, but he does some stuff in his comedy that is kind of like asshole moves, but its an act or what ever.

@mtm2490: I don't think he is an asshole, i think he is a very poor/boring commentator/entertainer. I have watched a few of his Walking Dead videos and cringed so hard at his reactions that i'm pretty sure i'll never click on one of his videos ever again.

There are many much much better "Let's Players" out there.

@nadsat-77: I would agree with you on the better letsplayers. Im just saying that he isn't always like that, as if its just an act for his audience. I am also saying that he is farthest from being an asshole/ other negative things people were saying about him.

I still prefer to watch other shows though. lets plays don't really do it for me.

@retron57: one is a seasoned vet in comedy the other is famous for acting like a child in videos.
One wrote for the Simpsons and Saturday night live, the other is famous for jump scares.

Aaaaand there went the itty bit of admiration I had for Conan, giving that turdlet camera time, let him fade into obscurity like he deserves.
