I enjoyed it for the most part. It was classic puba, it got the job done and was good, although I would of liked it to be spectacular or at least different from the norm, I can't complain.

And not to mention it was a 10+ mins video, regardless of how well the video was edited, it's not always an easy task to complete a relatively big project.

well done to both

This. Even if you have problems with the editing style, you have to give Puba credit for making a video that long with that much attention to detail and work put into it. This video clearly represents a lot of man hours from both Dutchy and Puba, and most people can tell you from experience that motivation gets sapped over time... I admire Puba for putting an equal amount of hard work into every second of the montage. NONE of it felt rushed and I think that is a pretty huge achievement for a project this big.

Soundtrack

To be honest, I found the soundtrack a bit disappointing/meh, especially for a final montage for such a big name. I found it to be missing that one big song. That one song that makes the video. That one song that no matter where you hear it, you think of the montage it was in.

I did like how I wasn't familiar with any of those songs (I've never heard that version of Pursuit of Happiness), but none of the songs are anything I'll remember.

Editing

This isn't a knock down on the editing or gameplay, but I don't think the editing matched the gameplay. The editing has a much more seriousness to it than the gameplay. I've always felt montages of mostly social clips should have much lighter editing. An all MLG montage with high ranked players would've fit this style of editing (toned down a bit) much more.

All the text throughout the video is just annoying and cheesy. Too much flickering and too much of those quick little zoom-ins. Didn't like all the glowing either.

Gameplay

The only way to knock down Dutchy's clips is if you absolutely hate social clips, but even then, you have to admire the string of kills he puts together. You think the clip is over, but he some how keeps going. I've never gotten a clip that could match a single clip in this video. I don't know how he does it.

The first 2 clips honestly had me thinking "Oh my God, is this going to be Killionaire only montage?", which it probably could've been if he really wanted it to.

Unbelievable! Dutchy, this is obviously the best halo 3 footage recorded, congratulations on that. The footage was so insane that I felt disappointed when a clip featured you no scoping for a MERE jaro.

And Puba, awesome job. There's so much detail in your editing, I really respect how much time you put in. You matched themes with each song and kept it fresh all the way. Great clip placement too, I wouldn't know what to do if I were editing a vid with 5 killionaires. Great layout, great everything. yi
