  1. Yeah, I definitely think that's true. The level of discourse on the bombcast is much more reflective of how game journalists tend to approach games, whereas you can definitely tell that the Thumbs are game designers and think about the medium in a fundamentally different way. But when someone (usually Jeff) actually engages with some facet of weirdness in this industry, his perspective is absolutely fascinating! I just wish it happened more often.
  2. Y'all are nuts, those were the glory days. The bombcast started to go downhill when they actually started talking about games instead of energy drinks, beer cans with shotgun tops and Jeff's run-ins with the Petaluma cops.
  3. I had trouble with Jake and Sean for the first few episodes too, for what it's worth.
  4. Destiny

    I just got back into this, I'm always up for strikes or crucible or whatever! PSN: nayatooo
  5. Honestly, I wonder if the running joke about nobody knowing exactly what Firewatch is might endear more of Giant Bomb's audience to it than just coming out and saying that it's a 1st-person exploration adventuring mystery game. Marketing can sell a game, but dank, chunky, organic, naturally-grown memes? That'll blow your game up.
  6. God, the 'tap to accidentally skip tutorial' thing happened to me, too. Drove me nuts.
  7. E3 2015

    I'm not unsympathetic - I like Metroid, and I'd love a game that recaptured that Super Metroid feeling - but, like... come on.
  8. Destiny

    I tried to launch Destiny and... I'm getting a 90-day countdown to the expansion launch with no option to actually start the game. Seems like it's happening to a few other people. Weird.
  9. Plug your shit

    Would it be, like, completely inappropriate to plug my ongoing live E3 press conference commentaries? Because we're having a ton of fun, our chat is small and queer, and we'd love some company. The schedule is here, and our stream is here! You know, in case you get tired of Giant Bomb.

    Steve Gaynor on the E3 stage! Tacoma!!!!! I'm smitten.
  11. E3 2015

    I will not hear a word against mo-cap dog, prince of our hearts and our twitter feeds
  12. Jeff LEGOldblum a.k.a. LEGO Jurassic World

    Dahnasawers!
  13. I almost hate to admit it, but Dan is kind of growing on me over the course of Jeff's mixlr drive to LA. He seems like a really fun dude to take a road trip with.
  14. Feminism

    Yeah, "everyday carry" is an already-existing term for gun people.
  15. By the way, here are some of the quotes from that Goodreads dude. They're awesome. His name is Dylan Saccoccio, and his book is The Boy and the Peddler of Death, which was mentioned on the podcast.
  16. Dota Today 17: Aui_2000

    One day we'll emerge from the podcast trench.
  17. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    Yeah, I think part of the problem with reddit is just that it's huge, and every subreddit is this weird insular self-perpetuating echo chamber. The cooking and diet subreddits I follow are just fine, but I wouldn't dream of heading outside of that bubble.
  18. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    I know that it's probably never going to happen, but KiA being banned would just be... *kisses fingers like a chef*
  19. The Last Guardian

    Wow, did Keita Takahashi come back to games? I thought he was off designing playground equipment and painting and being endearingly odd.
  20. Idle Food - Cooking!

    I've never heard this from anyone, but if I did, I think it would shake me to my core.
