Brad's ridiculous flakiness with playing games wouldn't be so unbearable to listen to if he would at least just cop to being a flake. His weird insistence that he will play games, that everyone knows he won't finish, only for him to not finish them and then get pissed at people who expected him to, is one of his worst aspects.

Also, it's not the game's fault if you disappear from the game for a few weeks and then come back and forget what happened. I get that that's not fun to see everything in context; but that shit is on you.

This particular episode does not seem to be appearing on the feed list? Despite deleting it from scratch and resubscribing. ? I've had to manually download it.

32" Samsung LED-LCD TV I bought during Black Friday has 2 HDMI ports and only has 1 hybrid component/composite input.

Also, Blu-ray players, along with Roku, have pretty much phased out component. For that matter, I am pretty sure the BD playback on the PS3 via component is limited to 480p.

Let's face it. Component is on it's way out. Makes sense the consoles would follow suit.

With that being said, I would be surprised if these consoles did not still have composite.

I listen to the Bombcast on a SanDisk Sansa Clip+ (4GB).

Advantage being, much more lightweight and portable than a phone.

@ch3burashka: No. Apples vs. Oranges is literally apples vs oranges. halo 2 vs burnout is figuratively like apples vs. oranges.. Don't worry, though, this is a common mistake.

No, I'm pretty sure Burnout cars look, feel and taste like apples, as much as Halo 2 faces taste like oranges.

@vegetashonor: I've never understood why people do that. They have until midnight in THEIR (the best) time zone to get it up and still have it be a Tuesday podcast. They still have 4 hours left!

@wikitoups: 10:40 pm here in WV. Tick tock, tick tock! :)

Brad Shoemaker here

Jeff's off to New York cause he's going to see the future of Playstation: Home 2.0.

"Anyone go see that new Die Hard movie? Because I did. Fuck that shit" (1 hour of talking about Die Hard 1-5).

Although Jeff not being there I am not sure how much Die Hard talk there will be.

Brad: "Car models peaked, like, 10 years ago."

What...

I think he was talking about how for quite a while, rendered cars have been a lot closer to being indistinguishable from reality compared to, say, rendered Triple H's hair.

By the way, the Crysis 3 Quick Look is sort of podcastish, while we wait...

Yeah, Brad can usually keep his hyperbole in check, but I mean, come on, this is just nuts. Hell, just look at Forza versus Forza 4 or Forza Horizon. That's 6-7 years and a HUGE difference, much less 10 years.

@krataur said:

What...

I sort of vaguely see his point. Burnout 3 cars still look good. Granted that's like eight and a half years ago, but I'd rather look at Burnout 3 cars over Halo 2 faces any day.

Isn't Burnout 3 cars vs. Halo 2 faces literally the case of apples vs. oranges?

@jeff and crew tend to make a lot of timeline assumptions based on fiscal years, but in fact companies set their own fiscal year-ends, and thus their fiscal quarters. Activision starts its year on January 1; Nintendo, Sony and Ubisoft start on April 1; Microsoft starts on July 1, their Q1 ends September 30; and the U.S. Government starts on October 1 (the only example I could find quickly).

Retailers like GameStop and Wal-mart, start on February 1. They have no need to conveniently align with calendar quarters, when accounting for holiday returns is the priority.

Even if the majority of companies are consistently April, fiscal quarters are still a bad estimate for release windows. That's a lot of data to keep in mind. (pardon my Pachter, but I've been taking accounting classes all year. No more, thank god. ;)

Fascinating. I agree that it's too easy to jump the gun and make those assumptions

Yesterday was a holiday so it seems they were recording it today and just finished. Probably going to be a late one this week.

I'm having a Godawful week, and the only cure is new bombcast.
