I don't post much here in the forums but I have watched and listened to Giant bomb for a long time.
There's nothing more I like than sitting down and watching Unprofessional Fridays on a Saturday morning (Europe here, thanks to whoever dev'd the XBMC plugin), and I used to enjoy TNT in the exact same light. In fact, they were my favorite shows and the entire reason I started paying for premium content which always was, nothing short of hilariously amazing. In particular I really like the way Ian (Thanks Ian) puts the guys in the studio on the game screen.
Unprofessional Fridays has gotten even better for me in recent times as I really like the addition of Drew to the mix permanently. He's got a unique perspective on the type of games that the other guys aren't as interested in. Vinny's current FMV game binge is one of my favorite things to watch ever. Watching unprofessional Fridays is one of the activities my girlfriend and I look forward to every week. She's not interested in clips where you can't see the dudes talking and get their facial expressions. She watches more for the genuine humor and not so much for the actual games. I totally get that and I'm sure she's not alone on that one.
Now to the negatives.
Whatever happened to TNT? The current premium content doesn't interest me too much as it's changed a lot in recent months. I know there was the tragic loss of Ryan during this time and that most likely contributed to a reshuffle in the site and the way things were shot. however it's with a heavy heart I'm considering leaving the premium status of the site as I don't think it speaks to me as it once did. The site has changed greatly since I originally joined.
It's not entertaining to me to watch one person talk through a game on their own (spooking with Scoops). I have no interest in DOTA (although I do enjoy the ribbing that Brad gets from the other Duders) and certainly I have no interest in listening to a premium pro wrestling podcast from a video game website. Even Scoops and the Wolf I just find uncomfortable. I feel like I'm caught in the middle of two people having a conversation and I'm 3 inches away from both of their faces.
So, fellow members of the Giant Bomb community, I ask you; Has the site changed or have I changed? Am I the only one that misses the other valuable premium content from the site? Where are the show's like TNT, endurance runs and even mailbags?!? Hell, I'd even be happy if they just brought back I love/hate Mondays.
How do we all feel?
