  1. Criminey, It's Christmas (2015-)!

    Is this thread supposed to be reverse psychology or something?
  2. They're taking my Freeze Peach!

    Yeah me too. I hate this goddamn thread title.
  3. Other podcasts

    I wish she would just entirely abandon the phony California accent (or whatever it's supposed to be) already. I find her real accent much easier to listen to.
  4. An email I sent to Giantbomb

    I mean, I needed reminding of it and was glad to see it. But whatever; if people want to ascribe the worst possible connotations to everything the guy says then I guess that's their prerogative.

    I don't think that's what he was saying at all and I think Sean's reply was incredibly obnoxious. In context I think it's pretty clear that he wasn't trying to dictate what games can or can't be; he was just saying that even though a bunch of awful shit happened around them, video games are still a great way to have fun.

    No one should ever enjoy anything as long as there is anyone else anywhere not enjoying something.
  7. General Video Game Deals Thread

    This year's sale sucked. The only thing I bought was Legend of Grimrock 2, and that was only discounted by like 20%. They didn't even do anything interesting with the trading card crap this time. A shitty sale to cap off a shitty year for games. Bah, humbug.

    At this point my opinion on Dan has pretty much completely turned around. He seems like a nice guy. Jeff's cynicism is becoming pretty unbearable, even for me, and I never give a shit about anything Brad likes to talk about, so I've come to rely on Drew and Dan. The Metal Gear Scanlon, Demo Derby, and Mario Party Party videos are by far the most enjoyable part of Giant Bomb for me right now. The thing that's refreshing about Dan is that he actually seems like he enjoys playing video games. I don't really share his tastes, but it's just nice to see someone actually getting excited about something. Some of his ignorance is still kind of irritating, but it just seems like weird gaps in his knowledge rather than thing he's stubbornly refusing to learn (for the most part), and I think he's kind of playing it up a little bit because he thinks it's funny.
  9. I Had a Random Thought (About Video Games)

    I find the Logitech G27 to be more than adequate for my Euro Truck Simulator needs. (pushes glasses up bridge of nose)
  10. Recently completed video games

    I don't remember Donkey Kong Country being very difficult to beat, but I think it was kind of a pain if you wanted to get exclamation points on all the levels, because some of the secrets were hidden in pretty obscure places. I feel like the Donkey Kong Country Returns games are much harder than the original, but it's possible I've just gotten old.
  11. Movie/TV recommendations

    My initial read on it was closer to SuperBiasedMan's, but
  12. (superlative) adj. + boxart

    Yeah, people give it a lot of shit, but it did at least get my attention enough to make me pick up the box and look at the back of it to see what the hell the game actually was, so I deem it a success.

  14. 2015: Year of the PS3... and Back to the Future II

    Persona 5 is coming out on the PS3 in 2015, so it might be the year I finally get one. Year of the PS3 confirmed.
