Giant Bomb E3 2012 Reanimated

#1 Edited by Fattony12000 (7522 posts) -

Hey Duders,

Did you miss any of the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo press conferences? Or any of the Giant Bomb chat room experiences that came with those press conferences? Well, bully for you, because I went ahead and recorded 128 gigabytes (or 10 hours and 43 minutes in the new money) of video footage of the fucking chat room. I then took the 720p downloaded versions of each presser (weighing in at 11 gigabytes total, or 6 hours and 28 minutes in British English), those lovely user-created E3 banners, and then blitzed it all up and created this video thing.

Since this is up on YouTube (in 1080p) I also plan to annotate and provide clickable links to the various hyperlinks and gifs and stuff that were posted in the chat room. I will be doing this for all of the conferences this year, and I plan to do more of this kind of stupid crap in the future; if more than one other person finds it useful/funny/watchable/stupid/great/shit.

Let me know, is this a thing you want me to do more of?

@Fattony12000: go forth and create the Giant Bomb E3 2012 Reanimated.

Also, did you just thanked yourself on your own thread? That's some high level shit.

This is phenomenally ridiculous. IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY.

Great stuff!

@Fattony12000: That is some insanely awesome work and I highly encourage more of it. Good work all duders involved.

This is awesome! Good job, duder.

#6 Posted by Grissefar (2842 posts) -

Yes please, that would be cool, man.

#7 Posted by Sweep (8922 posts) -

Now you can all watch the stupid shit I posted during E3. Huzzah.

Also it means we can go back through and ban everyone who acted like a twat in the chat. That sounds like a Dr Seuss book. Twat in the chat.

A really, really bad Dr Seuss book.

Here's the first instalment!

@Winternet: @Tebbit: @joshthebear: @elcalavera: @Grissefar: @Ravenlight: @Phatmac: Thanks y'all, that's more than enough of the encouragement that I needed to carry on with this silly, silly nonsense.

@Sweep: More like The 500 Twats of Bartholomew Cubbins.

@stinky: No worries! We got you covered Duder!

@DeF: I know I'm stupid, I love it as well!

It is staying in the chat...forever...

This is amazing!
#16 Posted by JeanLuc (3591 posts) -

Good job duder. Neat idea!

#17 Posted by beard_of_zeus (1698 posts) -

Turns out there are some dedicated folks making some crazy shit! It's like you've captured the moment that is E3 in a bottle, it almost feels wrong...

#18 Posted by AssInAss (2668 posts) -

Oh My God. *bows at your OCD*

@Ravenlight

Nice work, duder! Now I can catch up on all the stupid memes I missed :D

I second that. Thank you. You know, a lot of the time I just watch the live shows in the archive, because Giant Bomb is something like 7 hours behind us, so it's always live in the middle of the night or early morning.

I miss the chat experience, and the fun of seeing it live. It's great.

HOW COULD YOU GET UPSET THAT SOME GUY SAID THIS PICTURE MADE JOHNNY V LOOK LIKE AN UGLY TRANNY! HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PICTURE! GOD DAMN IT PEOPLE!

#21 Posted by TooWalrus (13236 posts) -

Also, some political correctness extremest posted this up on my wall:

"This is literally (and by literally, I mean metaphorically) blowing my mind. I can't believe we're getting all pissy that one of Giantbomb's guest said "tranny". Christ." - Giant Bomb User TooWalrus, 2012

The chat made me sad to be a member of this community... until, I clicked the "following" tab, everyone there was completely pleasant, reasonable, and excited about what was going on. I love you guys!

#22 Posted by Brendan (7843 posts) -

Holy hell man, nice work. I don't think I want to watch the pressers again but I'm impressed nonetheless.

Someone in the chat said something like this: "How about video games, guys?", and I replied to that with: "Video games? Fuck that! Let's get offended instead!".

Yeah, that episode of the chat was unpleasant to watch.

Holy shit this is perfect. One of the things I love about E3 and live shows on GB is the chat and general fuckery that happens there, and I was totally busy for all of this years E3 so I missed all of it. CHeers mate.

Do you reckon you can do this for the e3 podcasts as well?

#25 Posted by bushpusherr (809 posts) -

This is totally awesome and crazy, and I don't want to take anything away from the effort you made. This is really cool.

On the other hand, I usually spend live events with the chat closed because it's usually filled with non stop bitching and assholes. So, while I can marvel at this feat, I have no intention of watching them. Keep on keepin' on though!

#26 Posted by ThePhantomStranger (377 posts) -

This is amazing, you are amazing, E3 was not amazing.

#27 Posted by Grimluck343 (1149 posts) -

Man, I'm not saying that what you did isn't impressive... but why the fuck would anyone want to relive GB E3 chat? I watched the very beginning and the moment they showed Master Chief I wanted to shoot myself in the face reading that chat.

#28 Posted by vikingdeath1 (982 posts) -

YES! I was so Sad I missed the GB Ubisoft press conference experience! YOU ROCK BRO!

#29 Edited by Fattony12000 (7522 posts) -

@JJOR64: You're amazing too, Zach!

@JeanLuc: Ta!

@beard_of_zeus: Yup, I've created and filled a nasty nasty bottle for all of us to sup from.

@AssInAss: That's the first time I've ever been called that, thanks!?

@Obinice: Duder, I'm in the UK too, staying up till the sun's up is all in a day's work!

@TooWalrus: What a scoop! Send it over to Hawktaku!

@Brendan: Thanks a lot, I plan to do this for stuff like TNTs and other live video things in the future.

AlexanderSheen: What are video game?

@Zero_: Unfortunately, I was not able to stay up from around 3:00 AM until 7:30 AM to get the Bombcast chat recorded, I will improve on this in the future though!

@bushpusherr: Thanks for your thanks!

@ThePhantomStranger: You're amazing!

Exclamation Marks!

Here's round two, Electronic Arts...

This is ridiculously fantastic, and yes, this is a thing I want you to do more of.

#31 Edited by Fattony12000 (7522 posts) -

@rebgav: Thanks Nietzsche!

@Grimluck343: You're right, no one was being hyperbolic enough.

@vikingdeath1: Well hot damn have I got good news for you, here's the next episode of Fattony12000's Giant Bomb E3 2012 Reanimated, just click below!

@PillClinton: And you're fantastically ridiculous! More soon come.

Giant Bomb...E3...do do do de do...do do...do...here's number three, le Ùbîsôft.

#32 Posted by Landmine (525 posts) -

I support this.

It's like I'm there.. maaaan.

#33 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Shit got real sexist when Aisha Taylor was hosting!

#34 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Just noticed someone said Watch Dogs? in chat when they were playing that trailer. Was this a known IP before this? Or did we have a Ubi employee in the chat!

#35 Edited by Fattony12000 (7522 posts) -

@Landmine: YOU'LL NEVER LEAVE!

Things will never be completely in sync, bear in mind that things were showing on different people's streams at different times, and my version of the offline press conference is simply behind those people. I've tried to balance it as best I can.

Here's number four for ya'll!

#36 Edited by Landmine (525 posts) -

In all honesty, I just gave up my night watching these. Great work.

EDIT: My girlfriend hates you for these though.

#37 Posted by natetodamax (19212 posts) -

Oh god. What.

#38 Posted by Deusoma (3018 posts) -

The proper Video Thing to use as an example is It's A Website, not the Red Alert 3 trailer remix, but this is still a glorious thing you have created. Well done, good Duder.

#39 Posted by demonknightinuyasha (468 posts) -

I missed most of these...I'm gonna watch all of these....I don't have time for this shit ._.;;;; either way Thanks! :D

#40 Posted by Fattony12000 (7522 posts) -

@Landmine: I hate your girlfriend too! Wait..no...

@Voxel: It's full of stars.

@Deusoma: That's the joke.

@demonknightinuyasha: No, thank you.

WHAT IT IS...part the last...

@Fattony12000: Have fun not working, because that's the only way you could possibly be bored enough to go through an annotate that much footage. If I had any sort of bandwidth available to me, I'd watch the shit out of this.
