Which one do you prefer? Ryan and Jeff slapping rabbids around or Matt and Steve getting Scared?

Personally, I've been watching the Let's play Halo:CE Anniversary Co-op by Matt and Steve and absolutely love it. It's a nice break from the crew content.

What do you think?

That's Steve and Daniel doing the Halo CE LP.

I enjoy both sides of content pretty equally. Both could be a bit more consistent in releases though.

Sorry about that but yeah I suppose it could be a little more consistent. Still it was incredibly funny. They seemed a lot more free and open about it talking about all sorts of nonsense while having fun. And that's what sort of, struck me the most. I was watching the Kinect QL's and people were hating on the interns but they just seemed to have more fun with the game than the pros do.

Some of the intern stuff is my favorite content out of GB recently, besides the premium vids. I love Fear Gauntlet and I'm really hoping it returns soon.

Not enough Matt Kessler in my life.

I feel like the Interns don't get enough credit. I know they are interns, but come on, all the guys on Giantbomb started out as interns. It's the way it goes, but I'm pretty much interested in anything that's put up on the site - intern stuff included!

Crew all the way. I like the interns but they don't make me laugh.

I've fallen way behind on the intern content. When's the last time they've even done a Fear Gauntlet episode?

Same here, I've been missing the Fear Gauntlet big time. It was one of my favorite new pieces of content on Giant Bomb. Kessler and Lemon make a wonderful team.

With that said I definitely come here for the regular and premium content from the main crew. They consistently turn out some pretty god damn magical stuff on a weekly basis. I never thought a site like this would spawn that caters exactly to my sensibilities. I've lost count of times I've looked like a crazy person on my subway commute, unable to contain a huge smirk or random laughter while watching and or listening to GB content. The intern content is not on that same level.

The intern content has been really good as of late. I'm skipping the Chrono Trigger Endurance Run and just watching the intern Youtube videos instead.

#10 Posted by oldjack327 (131 posts) -

Yeah, definitely enjoy watching Dan and Perry do Free to Plays, and Kessler and Steve's Fear Gauntlet is one of the best things to happen to this site in a while.

That's not to say I don't enjoy the original crew's work, but the stuff the interns have been churning out is mighty impressive. I think the internship is really paying off. Good work, Giant Bomb, good work.

I like the fear gauntlet and i used to like the lemon lens but i still much prefer the crew stuff.

#12 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

I think Kessler should be in everything. He's got my sense of humor.

#13 Posted by CenturionCajun (1461 posts) -

I like Daniel quite a bit but I prefer crew content all the way. Kessler, Perry and Steve are alright but their personalities just don't click with me.

There is not enough Matt Kessler in any of our lives, fortunately I have accepted him as my lord and savior.

#15 Posted by huntad (1930 posts) -

I only find Matt and Steve funny, but I still prefer the crew's content. I'll definitely watch some Matt/Steve content though!

#16 Posted by dudeglove (7684 posts) -

People will hate on the interns regardless of what they do or do not do. Why some of them have not had a mental breakdown and gone on a forum rampage intrigues me, but I'm still waiting patiently with popcorn in hand for that moment.

#17 Posted by JayDee (439 posts) -

love and miss nick. unquestionably the goat intern, and romancecast was at one time my favorite podcast.

I keep a list of the Fear Guantlet stuff here, if it's of any help to you.

#19 Posted by Jimi (1126 posts) -

The intern content is great but for obvious reasons it doesn't hold up to the crew content. Love em both though

#20 Posted by ProfessorEss (7253 posts) -

Aside from the perhaps Bombcast I think the Fear Gauntlet is the best content this site has created in quite a while. I found the Condemned ER particularly entertaining.

#21 Posted by iFail (236 posts) -

The interns are pretty cool but I find the regular cast a tad more entertaining.

#22 Posted by Soap (3559 posts) -

No offence to any of the interns because they all do great work, but I find they can be a little to awkward on camera for me to really enjoy the content they provide, I imagine it's all practice though.

#23 Posted by GeekDown (1170 posts) -

I liked the Fear Gauntlet for a while, but I got tired of it. I don't really care about intern content unless Kessler is in it.

#24 Posted by spilledmilkfactory (1812 posts) -

I love them both, but because most of the Intern content is stored on YouTube and not on the main site (something that should definitely change) and because of my increasingly busy schedule, I end up watching more of the Crew content. Again, both are fantastic

#25 Edited by Still_I_Cry (2494 posts) -

I haven't watched much of the intern stuff.

When they did the Kinect QL they were somewhat amusing.

I think the crew make me laugh more though.

Particularly Ryan, Jeff and Vinny.

#26 Posted by Brodehouse (9515 posts) -

With no disrespect to Ryan and Patrick, I think we'll look at the Condemned ER as being the top piece of GB content at the end of the year. The only thing I would put up against it are the E3 podcasts.

We should really have a Content of the Year awards show for the staff, just like they do Game of the Year for developers.

#27 Edited by lockwoodx (2479 posts) -

edit: After watching the serious sam 3 quicklook, I change my vote from both to intern content.

#28 Posted by Deadmanforking (566 posts) -

The intern content has been amazing this year, and I would say most of it has been alot better then most of the crews content.

#29 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

I have no way of keep up with the content the interns do because it is all on youtube and is never surfaced here

#30 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

I think the combination of Ryan and Jeff yelling at the interns is the best of both worlds. The investor intro to Betting the Farmville where they berated Kessler for this handwriting was easily the best part of that series.

#31 Posted by Deusx (1902 posts) -

Both actually, the content is awesome.

BUT WHERE IS MY FEAR GAUNTLET THEY HAVEN'T RELEASED ANYTHING FOR THE PAST MONTH GOD DAMNIT!

#32 Posted by BlinkyTM (1054 posts) -

I think they're both alright. Chili Cast (Forgot it if that's not the actual name) needs video though, not just audio.

Hmm... Not a bad idea. I'll discuss it with Dan and Steve and see if we can't jerry-rig something up.

Also thanks for the feedback everyone! You're the reason why we get to keep making our incredibly dumb videos.

#34 Posted by Shikon (175 posts) -

is there an easy way to find all the intern stuff?

i know its on the youtube channel but thats also full of trailers and crew stuff and info videos.

its to damn hard to find what i am looking for.

so yeah not seen a lot of the intern stuff but the once i seen i liked so both is my vote!

#35 Posted by Steve_Ramirez (1257 posts) -

Thanks guys. Really glad to hear the positive feedback on our stuff.

#37 Posted by FLStyle (4506 posts) -

No Intern content for me thanks, I'll just stick to the regular stuff.

#38 Posted by upwarDBound (654 posts) -

I only like the Fear Gauntlet stuff on the intern side really. Steve's bombcast videos can be kind of funny too.

#39 Posted by tadros (181 posts) -

I miss "Internal Affairs" I wish that would make a come back.

#40 Posted by tourgen (4426 posts) -

The Fear Gauntlet was great.  But anyway I guess I never really thought about making a distinction between intern and non-intern stuff.  Seems weird.  It's all Giant Bomb to me.

#41 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

One's better than the other, I'll let you guess which is which
