Please let there be a 'Dave Fortress' style video for Eve Online. That would be excellence! Call it.... 'Dave's Bayou'?

DAMNIT, @snide! I've been getting calls from a Mini-Cooper dealership for someone named Wu and I couldn't figure out how it happened, but NOW I KNOW! There are PEOPLE on the other side of that +1 number, you monster!!

Just listening to this after watching the Sony 2013 reveal, hah. First of all, a big kudos to Dave's work ethic. I can't imagine all the debugging that must have been necessary to get things running.

I really like the non-gaming convos. Vinny's life stories are so relatable, and the Ryan is pretty introspective sometimes. I like his vocabulary. And Brad... oh, Brad. On top of this, nearly everything is coated with a sense of humor and that makes the Bombcast so fun to listen to.

Then I am your comrade in fiend'osity. No fake, I'm straight up torqued for the next Bombcast. That being said, I'm straight up torqued for every Bombcast.

Speaking of putting down fake numbers, my number looks super fake. So I got a call from a hospital last week. "Hi this is blahblah hospital, Gabriel, we need you to come in for surgery tomorrow at nine, bring your bag."

you got there in time right?

Hey @snide, when DUST 514 comes out I will fight the ground battles over your space truckin' routes.

What am I missing here? I can't find that level of depth inside the wiki search. There was talk about being able to search for games that have both dungeons and dragons in them, but from what I'm seeing, there's no object/concept/etc search box. The only things you can actively search for is developer and publisher? @snide

Edited by FrostedMiniWheats

"Is there any other news? Any new games this week? Any Aliens news? Any Crysis news? ...Any video game movie news? Nope? Okay emails."

Jesus, what does Nintendo have to do to get attention from these guys? They announced a sequel to Giantbomb's 2009(?) DS game of the year in a new Mario and Luigi RPG alongside a bunch of smaller scale projects like Mario Golf and three new IPs on their eShop service. Beyond any sort of fanboy rage nonsense, is the worlds biggest video game publisher announcing 6 or so brand new games not even a blip on the radar anymore? Could six new games from any other console game publisher be similarly forgotten?

Bombcast including Dave? I'm in! :D

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Nothing quite like the lack of Jeff and Patrick to turn the bombcast into a discussion about the crushing onset of middle age. Also, Brad openly says, on the record, that he is a graphics whore.

These days, I rarely use printers, but the annoyances that comes with inkjet refills and such is why I switched to a laser printer 3 years ago. Hell, stock toner in that same laser printer, a HP unit, only recently went empty, and even then, the replacement toner was only about 10 bucks on Amazon.

With that being said, I went ahead got another laser printer recently (actually, I am waiting for it to arrive in the next few days), because Amazon had a Brother WiFi unit on sale, and I am giving the old HP unit to my little brother.

Land of the free, for the longest time had people die of curable diseases for the sake of retaining the freedom to choose a health care provider without restriction - must keep your lawn within strict parameters and make sure to purchase the type of seeds that are accepted by your community.

Yeah, I'm with you.

EDIT: Don't get me wrong, not criticising the "land of the free" part, just being weirded out by how the hell it's legal to force you to keep your own front yard in a certain manner.

Is there a lamer old person band than Guns N' Roses? Don't get me wrong, Appetite for Destruction is fantastic but for every hit that they had, they had six horrible ridiculous cover ballads to cancel them out.

I honestly thought that chinese democracy wasn't bad... prostitute is a great song.

Yeah, honestly, Chinese Democracy is a decent album. It's just not a good Guns N' Roses album. It's Axl Rose's solo album in everything but name.

Dave Mustaine's been doing that with Megadeth for well over 15 years now.

Just sayin', as a scandinavian duder, guns and roses pretty much suck.

@nardak: Maybe they haven't played it yet since Alex was the one who reviewed it and not around the office. Would love to hear what they think of it too.

The concept of "no cycle" customers was an interesting one to touch on. We all think generation to generation, but it's logical that companies see consumers even more narrowly, SKU to SKU.

Think about the iOS line... people want to get the "new iPhone", the new thing. Sometimes that has a number, sometimes a letter, sometimes just the word "new" (iPad). Brad's right, when you skip a version, you really notice the difference, but for the millions of consumers who "keep up", it's incremental.

Think about all the times this generation that we've had hardware refreshed... "hey here's the new $250 thing on the shelf: it's the PSP-2000, it's the PSP-3000, it's the Go, it's the 360 Slim, it's the white Star Wars one, it's the Lite, it's the XL, it's the ultra slim, hey the hard drive is on the bottom now, it's the Wii Mini, it's the Wii U..." wait a minute... they just slipped that one by.

Now take the idea of a subscription-subsidised console, letting them keep that sweet spot price. And they don't want to take 360s or breadboxes off the shelf yet either... it's just another SKU. Some people want the new games, so "let's go pick up the new thing, it's about the same price as the old ones last year... wow this looks way better". But they don't see the shift as generational, in that it's 8 gigs of RAM instead of 512 megs, they see it as "looks as good as my buddy's expensive computer."

New consoles will look as good as today's PC games right? But much better? I'm not sure how. The plan seems to be off the shelf parts, not try to cram a Silicon Graphics workstation in there. Until resolutions need to change again, all of that processing power can start going into better AI, procedural worlds, the uncannyvalley... better made games that are also easier to make... or at least not have to fight the hardware.

Fascinating stuff. Good marketing study.

The last thing that needed to be done for buying my house was for them to get rid of the piano. I said oh no problem. I played for 7 years when I was young. Thinking of getting back into it. They were creepily happy about that. Fast forward a few years. I had to pay like 200/300$ to have it hauled the fuck away. It was quite busted up and I couldn't give it away for free! Before you think you can give a piano away for free please go to Craigslist first and run a search for "free piano".... or " I will blow you if you take my piano!"

This COULD be the Sega Saturn / Atari Jaguar no man's land hardware release. Who knows if either SONY or Microsoft will be successful. Maybe these systems will bridge the gap to different tech.

1) Dust 514, while giving me more fun than BF3 PC, is not QL-ready in its current state. After the next build comes that reworks the graphical side of things, stability (server) and smaller patches bringing in more goodness I think it'll be time for a QL and a TNT. It's mouse and keyboard capable and you should probably play it if you're tired of the ordinary arena shooter action FPSes or even BF3. (The F2P model is perfectly fine, you'll have to eat a lot of bad luck and make a lot of bad decisions to get broke.)

2) They say playstation "three" in Japan, we'll know within hours if they'll be saying "four" or not, but what makes me doubtful is that ふぉう makes "foe". If PS4 paywalls online gaming I'll be whining about it, if it adds region locking to the 360s level I'll be raging, we all should. But if it ends up working like the PS3 with a dual SKU offer and wants PS+ sub to use Gaikai based PS3 gaming then I'll be perfectly fine (because I live in good-internet-land Europe). The thing begins at 8 AM Japan time, and they'll get their own presentation later on the 21st.

3) Analcysts said that this generation would be the last one and they all pointed to iOS gaming as the one reason for it. Look at what companies they fellate, look at what companies they call dead or dying, you'll find that the majority of these analysts are really peculiar in what they say and do.
