I really enjoy this crossover show it really brings me back to the old Whiskey office vibe in a way, but all games all the time (which is an improvement)

Yes. Less awkward Comicvine segments, more awesome (but also sometimes awkward) games segments! I´m all for it.

And it was an absolute delight seeing Ryan McDonald on that couch.

Will GameSpot hate replace Patrick hate? It's nice to change things up every now and then.

Just like Patrick hate replaced Alex hate. The cycle continues.

Why can't we all just focus our hate onto 4chan like normal people.

Nope.

Love the new show - this week there were several laugh-out-loud moments.

At first I didn't like gamespot in my giant bomb.

but then

Just like the old days. With different people.

The guy from gamespot... should be thankful that his floundering site can even tag onto an up and coming one like gbomb.

In case you didn't know, gamespot brings in over 6x the daily users that giantbomb does. Even if you are going to look at growth trends over a years time, GB looks stagnant, not like a growing site.

One weird oddity though, is that Gamespot sees a massive spike in users during e3 and giantbomb does not.

this was the first response I actually thought was interesting (as opposed to the majority of you premadonnas who think your shit doesn't smell - this is a game forum where people don't have to kiss your ass). I would think gamespot's numbers are way down from the past 5 yrs where GB is on the rise - or I would hope considering their content is so fresh). It's too bad there is such hatred here considering we're all on the same (subscriber field) but you can rest assured i'll continue voicing my opinion.

The new releases show is shaping out to be a great show indeed, looking forward to the upcoming stuff.

#113 Posted by Darson (425 posts) -

It was fun to hate GameSpot before GB was bought by CBSi wasn't it? Ah, those good ole, shameless times.

#114 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3595 posts) -

Not despise, but to quote Adam Jensen - "I never asked for this".

Yup.

The New Release show.... there are other things I would love them to be doing instead. We already get quick looks of all the stuff there, the other things they play for literally like 3 minutes at a time. Then it's just them shooting the shit with GS guys... which yes, I never asked for.

#115 Posted by Fattony12000 (6357 posts) -

Nope, Chris and Max are nice.

#116 Posted by Ryanmc94 (60 posts) -

Bring back happy hour I say. GB + CV + GS crossover once a week would be hella fun. Also chuck in a little Matt Rorie here and there for some added entertainment. Sigh... I miss whiskey media

#117 Edited by RollingZeppelin (1858 posts) -

Their presence seems mostly benign. I guess I could be like OP and go into the videos just waiting for any slightly off putting remark from one of them and rage against it, but that would be a complete waste of my life, so no.

I despise that I supported GiantBomb with $$$ on the pretense they were breaking away from Gamespot and going to do things differently, only for them to happily go straight back there as soon as the going got tough / there was money to be made. That wasn't what I signed up for in the wake of the K&L scandal. I don't give a fuck who they have on the site content now, what difference does it make?

as much as i think the new releases show is ok, if it means these guys are doing a fat link exchange with gamespot and it brings in more audience for GB then by all means this show gots to continue

but damm GB only has that much people? (that graph is almost straight line also they have had very incremental growth)

i could have sworn during the days when whiskeymedia.com was still a thing and seeing their data, that the audience was at 1 million viewers.

GB has to definitely do both things then to grow efficiently, listen to peoples LEGIT feedback (i know, not all criticisms are legit) and then keep bringing in new people by doing things like these new releases show and the giantbomb gaming minute

#122 Posted by Butano (1683 posts) -

I thought it was fine, other than the lack of Drew TrackIR-ing it up on ArmA 3.

The only odd part to me was listening to the GS guy in the beginning dodge questions about his opinion on the game and what kind of computer he prefers. Like, he wasn't allowed to have an opinion while on camera.

Reminded me how CBS got pissed about CNET awarding the Hopper the best device at CES....

Im with you there. Its was super odd for years hearing NO mention of GameSpot in videos or the podcast, then all of a sudden they are best buddies. I understand that management has changed but I will always be suspect of how things are run at GS. Also the old time GS staff will never earn my respect. After the K&L issue, several people just said "fuck this" and quit. They saw something shitty and left to roll the dice and take a chance with a friend that had been wronged. The people that stayed, misty eyed goodbyes non-withstanding, only seemed to subtly condone what happened by staying.

#124 Posted by eskimo (459 posts) -

@pulledabrad: don't you think that Jeff and the guys probably have WAY stronger feelings than you ever could when is comes to Gamespot? You've trusted them so far, and they think this is ok, so why wouldn't you trust them here?

#125 Edited by Turambar (6485 posts) -

It takes a rather odd person to claim to want to protect a website, and in the same breath, condemn the creation of content that the staff is enthusiastic in.

You sure the GB guys want to really be buddy with GS folks? I think that's a very big assumption. One of the biggest consequences of selling to CBS is playing nice with GS. I'm not entirely sure that GB really wants these guys in their videos but now their hand is forced.

#127 Posted by Nightriff (4349 posts) -

Yes but I just don't watch that specific content. I don't see a purpose in the Wednesday show and it isn't even that entertaining. In the 45 minutes that I could stand watching yesterday I was utterly bored. So until word of mouth changes for the show, I'm just going to avoid it and pray for interesting content again, even UF's are hit and miss without any GS guys.

#128 Edited by ExcessDebris (146 posts) -

No. Not really. GS is fine.

Yes, I am in fact quite sure. My source? The staffs' own mouths.

That would be really nice since I know nothing about them and can ignore it easier.

#132 Edited by ImmortalSaiyan (4655 posts) -

I like the feature, even If I just skip through it. The gamespot staff is a welcome change of pace. I like a lot of the people over there.

#133 Edited by punkxblaze (2878 posts) -

It reminds me of On The Spot, and I'm okay with that.

#134 Edited by bobafettjm (1255 posts) -

Anything that helps them put out more content is fine by me, plus I have quite enjoyed the videos so far that include the Gamespot guys.

#135 Edited by Hockeymask27 (3667 posts) -

No I enjoy life to much to despise something out of my control.

#136 Posted by Maginnovision (481 posts) -

@delt31: I just hate when people use the term so I wanted to say, it's NOT pre-Madonna. It's prima donna.

#137 Edited by Redbullet685 (5980 posts) -

I like the Gamespot guys. I especially find Chris Waters enjoyable.

uh... if they hadn't gone back to CBSi they would have shut down. I hope you know this

Also, they clearly explained the scandal, the people that did that don't work there anymore, what's the big problem exactly? Are they not still doing things differently?

#139 Edited by Breadfan (6586 posts) -

Not at all. I actually think it is pretty awesome. It's nice to have a couple of new faces in the weekly content.

#140 Edited by sdharrison (475 posts) -

What target audience is Gamespot supposed to serve? Their big gun is VanOrd. They have no chemistry with each other. It smacks of a heavily corporate environment. The GB crew are enjoying their own careers, while Gamespot seems to be about working a shitty job with weird hours.

The release show makes me realize how I take for granted the chemistry on Giantbomb. Vinny and Ryan could carry ANYTHING. They could host sports talk radio and make it amazing. The Gamespot players just seem disconnected and somewhat joyless.

#141 Edited by Funkydupe (3293 posts) -

I have this impression that Giant Bomb caters to an older average age user-group (don't confuse that with a more mature user-group!). I like that it is more shoulders down than GameSpot seems to be in a lot of ways. I don't dislike GameSpot but their content doesn't appeal to me in the way it is presented. I have to say that I wish Giant Bomb would be able to expand in terms of core members soon; as that'd make more content for us that appreciate this site's way of talking and learning about games.

#142 Posted by supamon (1327 posts) -

No I don't mind it when GS people come over to GB content every so often. It's nice to get a little variety and get different perspectives on games that would otherwise have been dismissed by GB. Like Brad is the only one on GB that is into Starcraft 2 so it's great that he gets to talk about it with someone who has the same amount of understanding as him like Eric Tay from GS.

#143 Posted by Onced (106 posts) -

I really enjoyed this weeks Wednesday Live Show. Eric Tay seems like a total bro and Waters isn't half bad either. I'm optimistic this may grow into something good and the cross-pollination between GS/GB will not only bring in more diverse content, but additional viewers for Giant Bomb.

I don't want to hear that from you.

#145 Posted by Kinapuff (244 posts) -

I actually liked the last Wednesday show. It felt a lot more natural and I have absolutely nothing against incorporating them more. Had it been stale like the first one, then I may have had some reservations but they make a nice fit. Maybe that's just Vinnys charm working on everyone, though.

#146 Posted by HistoryInRust (6215 posts) -

That Maxwell kid is a riot.

#147 Posted by probablytuna (3445 posts) -

I'm kinda indifferent to the whole thing, I'm fine with it as long as the videos provide good solid entertainment.

#148 Posted by Winternet (7936 posts) -

Hey you guys, I'm going to say something, but this is all very hush hush. Top secret stuff. So, be cool and act normal ok? You're ready? Here it goes: the Giant Bomb duders like Gamespot, like, in a totally not sister-like way.

Duuuuuudes, I said act normal. Now, don't say anyone I said this and . . wait, what are you texting? Oh great, now everyone knows.

#149 Edited by envane (1156 posts) -

@fattony12000: you just like anyone named max , but then again i cant find any examples of a bad max ... so ... well played

Chris Watters plays great with Ryan, Kevin VanOrd is cool and hopefully Giancarlo shows up for the next show. PEACE OUT!
