 I looked for a similar thread but found nothing, if there's one just give me the link please :) 
 
Is GB recording TNTs and make them available for download? If not, will they do this in the future?  
 
I sometimes don't have time to watch them live so it would be nice to have them for download, maybe only for paid members.

Yeah, I feel like GiantBomb doesn't do a good enough job of letting people know that you can find them archived on Justin.TV.

I thought at this point it was common knowledge that they archived.

GB has to cater to more than their established loyal userbase. To reiterate my point in another thread, sometimes even I have a hard time finding their TNT archives. It's not even linked in their TNT news story page. I end up relying on a usermade page to find it. And how many new or casual GB watchers are going to know how to find that? I think GB needs a tab or page advertised on the front page where people can access the archived versions. Doesn't have to be archived video hosted on the site, it could just be a list of links to each of their archived JustinTV videos.

Agreed - I keep meaning to catch up on those that I missed out on but the hassle of tracking down the video usually makes me not bother when there's already so much other content on the site.

Thanks for the link!  I've also found the TNTs difficult to find.

I think the general theory behind TNT is that its a one off thing once a week. 
Sorta something they do for funzies and something for the power user who is on giantbomb anyways. 
 
If anyone is serious enough to watch all of them (like me <.<) without actual interest in all the games they play would put 2 and 2 together to do so 
 
With that said every now and again, despite being on this site so much and for so long, I stumble upon something it seems everyone else knows about

Would be nice if they could at least host them on their own servers so I could watch it at a lower quality.  On my college campus Wi-Fi I can usually stream a Giant Bomb video without waiting, but the TNT videos I have to give upwards of 10 to 20 minutes, and usually that's not even enough to watch an hour-long-plus video without stopping.  Or, I could be blind and I'm completely missing the quality selector on justin.tv's video page. 
 
I'm sure part of the reason they keep those videos on justin.tv is to save a bit of server space and bandwidth, not because they think the only people who want to watch the archives are the kind of people who are "dedicated" enough to know that they're kept on justin.tv's website.

I wish the TNTs were available for download. The sound is busted on my laptop at the moment and I like streaming Giant Bomb's videos to my Xbox anyway.

A 20-25 minute montage of the best bits would be much appreciated. 2 hours always feels like too long to watch anyone play video games.

@Vager Alright, but we can still ask for it, no harm in that.
