Best moment was Will Smith.

Posted by Duckbutter

dont get me wrong, I SAID DONT GET ME WRONG! you better not be fucking getting me wrong, i like Ryan. he's funny and articulate and all that.

but does he either not know he's fat or doesn't know horizontal stripes makes people look fatter?

or does he wear horizontal striped shirts on purpose all the time for ironic hilarity?

I really wish these guys had a better barometer of what's entertaining sometimes. You really need to have one or more of Jeff, Vinny and Dave, the power triplets.

Entertaining by whose standard?

I believe he is referring to humour of the side slapping variety. Content that has included a lot of such things have generally been best remembered and loved by the community. These moments are often the cause of Jeff or Vinny. He's trying to say that they should always try to have one of the funny guys in there to keep up an "entertaining" running commentary which will lead to memorable moments in videos.

Brad seriously reminds me of that annoying braggart friend we all had when we were 10.

who cares? what fantasy world do you live in where fat people don't have a harder time in life? if Ryan doesn't know that horizontal stripes make him look fatter, then he needs to be told, to ease some of his fat-people burdens.

There's no fourth option of "he really doesn't give a shit"? "Fat people burdens"? He has a job many of us would love to have, he's engaged to be married, and he's surrounded by good friends.

Clearly he's obese, and I'm sure he's aware of it. I suspect he's just not obsessed with his self-image. And his life seems perfectly unburdensome either way.

i dont care if his job is an ice cream taster and he's surrounded by fairies that sprinkle blow jobs and he's engaged to Megan Beyonce Kardashian, he's still gonna be charged extra for 2 seats on a plane when he doesnt have to be, still gonna get extra mocked by kids, and all his horse jockey applications denied, all because he's wearing horizontal stripes. somebody needs to tell him.

and how could someone's life seem "perfectly unburdensome" when you dont even know him and only see him in quicklooks? Patrick could be punkin Ryan for his lunch money every day. you wouldn't know, so just stop, dude.

If this is all you have, I rest my case. I've watched enough TNTs, seen enough justin.tv car streams, read enough tweets - to have a pretty good idea of whether or not Patrick and company are shaking him down for lunch money when the cameras are off.

It's an atrocity that this game doesn't have /dance.

Is it just me or does Alexis remind anyone else of Mark Ruffalo?

Posted by Deathpooky

God damn I hate those flying guys that shoot small guys. Hard to hit even without lag and if you get a spot of server lag you can end up dead in seconds because the game traps you in their fire.

@Arthurd said:

Just a public service announcement. Take advice from a guy that has way too much gold on WoW. Pick everything up and sell it. It adds up. Brad I don't think is much of a gold maker.

It doesn't really add up here. Non-magic loot is less than 10 gold a piece. Magic loot is 30-150 gold at most by level 20. After a few hours you pick up the same amount of gold off the ground when you open one chest or kill a set of guys. It's strange, but it's pretty much designed so that non-magic loot is pointless, and magic loot is only good for grinding into materials, unless you get something good enough that it can sell in the auction house.

I have to say, this is a bit of a piss-poor TNT. They should've just made new characters and played. Or already had characters that finished the Skelly King and continued on from there. Watching someone power-level, isn't all that exciting.

Did you watch the video with him about the site? It was two hours of incredibly insightful information about how he and Dave pretty much designed the whole website... Just because he is not funny doesn't make him not interesting.

Also, humor comes in all sorts of forms, be it pulling super obscure references (Jeff), acting like a derisive asshole (Ryan) or making quirky comments (Vinny). If it was all the same all the time, it wouldn't be interesting.

But he's got nothing to say about video games. I was referring to his constant appearances in GB videos about games. Not about the website, where he fits fine.

Alexis hits none of those categories. Even with these different styles, we can still point to something they've said and say it's funny. You can't do that with Alexis.

@ThePickle: His job on this TNT wasn't to be funny or talk about videogames though, he was to simply to read out question from the chat as the interns once would. Which he did without fault and without being intrusive into the core team in anyway.

Alexis is awesome, and what does it matter if he has anything to say about video games he is web designer for the stars. also he does not really try to be funny its more small comments that work for me

I found that if you enable Vertical Sync, most of the stuttering goes away.

Posted by Draxyle

This was more entertaining to watch than I thought it would. Running back into act 2 was a good decision, some actual slaughter in both directions. Will's quips were fantastic too.

I'm really warming up to it as I play. It is a bit too easy (especially with it's very lenient death penalties), but everything else about the game is mostly top notch, despite some "WoWification" going on. I am eager to play more of it at any moment I'm not actually playing it.

Glad to know the Giant Bomb community is there to remind me that Ryan is obese and Alexis isn't funny even though he never claimed he was and is simply helping out with questions and/or hanging out with his friends because he's a normal person that enjoys spending time with people he's familiar with and doesn't want to be the one dude at work that's a total drag and goes home when everyone else is going the extra mile to please their audience. So maybe let's cut the dude some slack?

Soo...Diablo III, huh?

Yeah, I learned to stop reading a majority of the comments on the site because of stuff like that. But yeah man, I was really close to buying Diablo III when I was watching the TNT.

When I'm dying I hope Brad is around.

Posted by ReaganStein

I like how 90% of brad's questions to the stream were things from Diablo II that didn't get changed. Seriously, starting a new character on nightmare? Brad, you are missing the point of this game.

Yeh but I can't use the built in vertical sync, it locks the frame rate at terrible 30 FPS... I just leave that off and force vertical sync on nvidia control panel, solid silky smooth 60 FPS and no tear or stuttering whatsoever.

Posted by Nihilius

@onarum: Yeah, I agree I would rather it be 60FPS, I'll give it a try in the AMD control panel and see if that works.

What you seem to be missing, is that you have zero evidence that any of the above ridiculous scenario is actually happening.

We have mountains of circumstantial evidence suggesting these guys are all good friends, who by and large treat each other with respect. We have no evidence (of any kind) pointing to your absurd scenario, or any variation thereof.

And so we come back to me having rested my case.

Posted by Rexicon

Let's talk about the real problem with this TNT, why didn't everyone start with a new character instead of Brad being bossman and everyone else stuck not doin nothing of note besides dying. Brad is kind of a control freak.

Edited by RichieJohn

I wish this game wasn't so overpriced.

It's £45 here. I've never spent that much on a game and Torchlight 2 and Grim Dawn have both been pre-ordered for less than £15 each.

It actually looks great but I can't justify the excessive cost.

In TL2 is doing fine. It's been near the top of Steams top sellers since preorders opened.

Alexis barely talked. And when he did, it was to relay questions from the chat. Hardly "bringing down our entertainment value."

If it did for you, then you are easily disappointed.

you really think that people that say Alexis is boring are only referring to this specific TNT? the guy is boring all the time. when Alexis is on the couch we yawn. when Will comes in, we cheer. my money is fueling Jeff's Skylander addiction so in return, i wanna cheer, not yawn.

it's just an opinion that happens to be negative. you people need to get over it. Alexis isn't crying himself to sleep every night. all Giantbomb staff members are trained to ignore comment disses.

"don't like it, stop paying"

if everybody did that then Giantbomb would lose all their subscribers and would have to shut down the site and have no clue why. then Vinny would starve and have to eat his own baby. is that what you want?

how many times has geek Dave dorkly said out of his nerdy mouth that Whiskey Media adjusts the site due to our community input? 17 times.

that means we voice our opinion, Giantbomb adjusts, we get entertained, no subscriptions are lost and the site flourishes. see how websites and communities work now?
