Keep trying Jeff. You'll hook them in eventually.
" Hahaha Captain Satonaka of the USS Steakhouse "
You can tell the Giantbomb crew is loosing interest because the videos are getting shorter.
It sucks that the Space War Zone didn't register properly for your quest. I agree with Jeff, Space War Zone is a terrible name for it.
Space Neon Lobster dance party!
Brad, you have to get to Lt. Commander before you can purchase a new ship class I believe. I have to admit that I've been having way more fun than I should be with STO, but I'm a big fan of Star Trek. I grew up watching the series, so they hooked me with their nerd bait.
The beginning of the game changed quite a bit when I played over the weekend. I really like it and I'm not much on MMOs, but I am a trekkie so that could have something to do with it. Between this and the Tiger/PGA Online Game, I could be set for the rest of the year. Outside of the Console Exclusive games that is. lol
yes!! star trek is poisoned by persona 4

Ahh, Jeff's slow descent into madness.
Borg cube is bigger than its shields. how silly.
You guys should do this for every big MMO beta.
Where's Cpt Amagi of the USS Uncontrollable Giggles?
Gotta represent the TalkRadar. It is my 2nd favorite podcast! Behind the bombcast of course.
Effing N.Wildman from Voyager!? Janeway better be in there somewhere.
I noticed Seaman has his skills spread pretty much even across all skills, is this the right way? I've been just dumping to energy weapons for space and turents for ground. BTW, I'm an engineer. Also, give the Seaman two weapons one with an AOE stun and a sniper. Then when about to take on a non-warrior or non-brute e.g. a swordman you can attempt to stun him till that spinning red circle shows up, then pop him with the sniper shot, easy kill. No need to take down the shields and armor.
Dammit, Brad is so easily distracted, it's so annoying. :D
I can barely hear them. I almost always have to put headphones on just to hear them.
Deep space 9 tomorrow.
If you look in the chat box someone said: "It's the duder! That totally made my day. :)" The Giant Bomb team; making people happy, one beta at a time.
These STO quicklooks aren't as fun when Ryan is backseat driving the whole time. All it does is expose how f'ing slow Brad is. Atleast with Vinny and Dave we are distracted from the plodding pace.
I always thought stars were just planets/suns/galaxies way off in the distance, but apparently in star trek you can drive right by them and they are just small bright specs
Dude. you are level 5 in an MMO, dont expect to be able to buy ship parts/gear and/or win a battleground. Its actually kinda refreshing to see a person such as brad whos playing this game like it were a casual RPG. Dude. its an MMO. Give it another 150 hours and check back on those ship parts.
Sometimes it's like: Captain Ryan Davis gives the orders, First Officer Gerstmann provides the strategy and insight, Lieutenant Shoemaker drives the ship. I wish you guys would do more, say, after the beta! After all, Brad and Ryan will have their lifetime subscriptions too!
You have to rank up to Lt. Commander (Rank 11 I believe) before you can get one of the bigger ships.
i got own by the Klingon(player) and borg at this map
I love the slow burn. I game I can't play being played.

This looks really fun, but I don't have time for MMOs.

" Think I saw at the first of K7 where someone was using one of the fire extinguisher items found on one quest where after dealing with a few enemy troops I had to save the scientists with futuristic fire extinguisher putting out the fires all around them. In the ship customization or the character sheet for the ship you can rename it as well as renumber it. Liked in STO that there are some merchant ships you can buy things from instead of escorting them, hoping this stays in the retail game as it's better than running to vendor to buy something. Agreed with everyone in this QL, once I got the cruiser I had a turret in the back as well as rear photon launcher & helped out tons in battle. Only fast travel I saw was in the powers list that had a transwarp to the starbase, aside from that Jeff seems to be right in flying lots in the warp space. "
I'm surprised Brad's the one that picked up on the Satonaka reference...
Oscar Mike is Oscar Mike. I'm pretty sure, at this point, that a good portion of the STO userbase is Giant Bomb.
these have been just terrific :)
U.S.S Steakhouse? Satonaka? That person is the greatest person of all the timez.
