Overview

As requested by @alexisg, @jeff, and even @ltsquigs! As mentioned during the Extra Life live stream the staff and engineers have stated that they would like to see new emoticons for use in the chat. Currently the most popular emoticons are from the Giant Bomb x Persona 4 fan art project like:

Brad
Ryan
Alexis

Common requests included giving Alexis a better emoticon beyond his embiggen one as seen above, as well as giving one for Ian. Also, we should probably have a "Sleepy Brad" emoticon as well.

So file your requests here and let's see what the engineers and community can come up with!

Top Requests

  1. Sleepy Brad
  2. Last Canadians
  3. Alexis, Ian, and general emoticon for the engineers
  4. VinnCo./CEO Vinny

EMOTICON CREATION TIPS!

  • We auto resize the images so you don't need to create them to emoticon size.

I think we should have a cool baby one

Is there a list of emoticons which already exist? Kind of envious at seeing images of the GB crew appear magically next to text of others.

We need a CEO Vinny, courtesy of VinnCo.

I'd love to see a Drew emoticon if one doesn't already exist.

A Vinco emoticon would be amazing, and quite useful.

It's been off an on, but mostly on from my experience. Not watching the stream currently, so I don't know what it's doing at the moment.

Maybe ones for the Giant Bomb Sports Team and Giant Bomb Flight Club? And maybe something from Bioforge, perhaps the main character, or a flute, a fork., or something.

Cool Baby

I feel like any Alexis .gif has to be based on that picture of him driving a forklift.

I would like to see a Will Smith cum face. When he was on Brad's steam yesterday that's all I wanted to post.

Pls no. Removing the chat and working around the sites shit resizing options is already hard enough. It's like you're trying to turn this into chaturbate or some shit.

I really don't understand emoticons or their purpose. The fuck is wrong with text? It's chat, not pictochat.

@zombiepie You have lost your spirit if you would rather a shitty icon, over the "iconic" <>

Oh you mean like when some starts a thread like "PS4 frame rate issues!", then writes 800 words about nothing, then someone puts up a WAAAAAmbulance image or something barely related. Yeah, it's getting old.

50% of responses are people putting up that fucking Michael Jackson eating popcorn gif or some stupid YouTube video.

If they nail it with the right meme it can be hilarious, but most of the kids here have no sense of irony.

#41 Posted by ThunderSlash (1548 posts) -

I'm pretty sure there is an Persona 4 style version of the Will cum face, I'd like to see that as an emote. Also, there needs to be a :salt emote for those fighting game streams.

#42 Posted by Aegon (5401 posts) -

A fork.

There must be :afork

please

Also :creeperjeff

You're taking this whole thing way to seriously.
