Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer segment has made a return after a lengthy absence. The segment features Conan having a go at Ubisoft's upcoming hack-and-slash game For Honor, which is due to release on February 14th for home consoles and PC.
The video is up and available over on the Team Coco YouTube channel. It starts with Conan and sports reporter Erin Andrews poking fun at the cold weather during most football games and how Conan was going to have the special effects team add cold breath in post production. I have no idea what that had to do with anything, but, eventually, just a minute into the video, Conan finally takes a seat with Tom Brady from the New England Patriots, as they have a go at Ubisoft's For Honor.
Conan and Tom Brady go one-on-one in a three round Duel match in For Honor. The Patriots' quarterback picked a Viking (as expected) while Conan ended up going with a Knight. Brady did most of the butt kicking but ended up getting stabbed off a bridge, and died in the first round. He cornered Conan and wailed on him in a corner in the second round until he died, and then used the spear to knock Conan off a ledge in the third round.
Later in the video Atlanta Falcons defensive end Dwight Freeney joins Tom Brady and Conan for some additional banter and PvP action. The three joke about Freeney sacking Brady on the field, and how the two should apologize to each other, which results in Brady ribbing Freeney.
Eventually they get to the character selection and Freeney goes with a Knight's Peacekeeper. Despite whipping out some sweet moves on Brady, it wasn't enough to take down Brady and his massive Viking hero, who steamrolled through Freeney.
But that wasn't all. The For Honor shenanigans continued when they brought in Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski. Gronk and Lynch go head to head, with Gronk getting the better of Lynch after they pick two huge warriors from the Knights and Vikings side.
Unfortunately, no one seemed interested in playing as the Samurai. I was waiting for someone to pick one of the technically skilled swordsmen, but they mostly kept it to Vikings versus Knights. I guess it makes sense given that, as football players, they probably wanted characters who seemed to represent how they play on the field... and Vikings match the closest out of them all.
If you want to play For Honor you'll have your chance starting next week with the free open beta between February 9th and February 12th. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC starting February 14th.
