Really exciting to see Jeff on IGN of all places, just after he switched to Gamespot. I guess all the sites are more open towards eachother these days, with new shows such as the IGN meta review show, where Giant Bomb has been mentioned before.

#2 Posted by Chris2KLee (2334 posts) -

Nice. I think Jeff has said in the past, most staff from different sites are actually very cool with each other, it's just the communities that tend to go to war.

#3 Posted by 71Ranchero (2738 posts) -

Yes. Exciting.

#4 Posted by AlexanderSheen (4969 posts) -

1 minute in and I already disgusted. This is not funny, I hope Jeff makes a difference.

#5 Posted by WMWA (1160 posts) -

I'm actually really surprised at how much I enjoyed this. Greg could use some work on his timing, but Altano is hilarious and his writing shines here. How long have they been doing this feature? I need to check this out

#6 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5143 posts) -

The "jokes" make me cringe.

#7 Posted by scalpel (314 posts) -

It's like a fucking high school project.

#8 Posted by 71Ranchero (2738 posts) -

What an awkward show. Its like watching one of those late night talk show monologues when the jokes dont get any laughs and the host gets visually nervous.

"I meet people on planes only"

"AHAHAHAAHAHAH"

Alright.

#10 Posted by AlexanderSheen (4969 posts) -

This is like a poor video game version of the Daily Show.

#11 Posted by Mister_V (1267 posts) -

I like Greg Miller I really do. But this makes me cringe.

#12 Posted by Humanity (9055 posts) -

I've seen that show before and it's pretty horrible. Mostly because that guy is like a weird mix of a baby and an awkward adult.

#13 Posted by BrickRoad (702 posts) -

Wow people really dislike this show. I thought it was alright, frankly. I mean it wasn't TV quality produciton, and some of the jokes were a bit lame, but when has that really not been the case on the internet? The interview with Jeff was pretty good, and they didn't get his name wrong, which is always a bonus.

#14 Posted by CollegeGuyMike (389 posts) -

I don't really Greg all that much. Sure the production seems fine, but there's just something about him that really rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it's his awkward timing or the overbearing "Laugh with me because that was so funny!" laugh, every time he makes a joke. Surely, this is only because the 'show' is in it's infancy but I think I can wait til they figure it out a little bit more before I pay any real attention to it.

and IGN haters start showing up in 3 2 1...

#16 Posted by EuanDewar (4893 posts) -

Dude looks mad like Frank Howley, also the ending is pretty good

#17 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

So, "Weekend Update"/Colbert Report but not funny?

I was honestly going into watching that with an open mind. I like Greg Miller and as far as podcasts go, I think IGN does a decent job. But that was pretty painful to watch. Not a fan. You can't force jokes and putting forced laughter in the background only makes it more uncomfortable.

#18 Posted by WalkerTR77 (1360 posts) -

Eugh, that was atrocious.

#19 Edited by Coafi (1483 posts) -

Someone please pin point the exact time the Jeff interview starts, I don't wanna watch the whole vid with that guy failing to do a good joke.

Edit: Found it! The interview starts around 7 minute mark!

#21 Edited by gla55jAw (2687 posts) -

Greg is one of my favorite podcasters and personalities along with Jeff. Yeah, the show is kinda cheesy, but the interviews are great. Looking forward to the full interview later.

#22 Posted by NegativeCero (2995 posts) -

The interview was fine, but everything else was kind of bad.

#23 Posted by nail1080 (1975 posts) -

Why promote this utter crap here?

#24 Posted by NicksCorner (415 posts) -

Sure, it was cringe inducing at times. But over all I thought the show was OK. Some of the jokes were (a lot) better than others and most failed on execution.

But hats off for the effort. Producing a show with just video game material must be tough.

The interview was the highlight of the show. Really felt like Jeff's personality helped the show ease into a more comfortable state.

#25 Posted by Raven_Sword (3444 posts) -

I thought the suit thing was kinda funny and the ending with jeff was great.

#26 Posted by AdMordem (458 posts) -

I was disappointed with the lack of Greg caressing Jeff's leg.

#27 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

nothing against IGN per se, but I had to turn it off after about 1 min. fake newscast announcer thing the guy has going for it and the audiance "laughter" makes it cringe worthy to watch. Its not bad because its IGN, its just bad

He actually made one good joke on the interview last week with Gary. He was summarising all the things on the show and said "all this! And my Dad still isn't proud of me!"

Unfortunately as I said... only the one good joke. Well I laughed when Gary had a go at him for touching his leg but that was more like the joke was on him.

I AM FROM GIANTBOMB AND I HATE EVERY OTHER VIDEO GAME WEBSITES! ESPECIALLY IGN! RAWR HEAR ME ROAR!

It was okay. I mostly just came for the interview which was fine for such a short show. Relax internet please! I know you guys hate mostly everything, but come on.

#30 Posted by DonutFever (3551 posts) -

I love Altano so bad.

I don't really Greg that much either but I do know a guy who does

so we cant hate something that is shit just because we should be above being like the internet... gotcha

I love IGN as an editorial staff, but as a website it became increasingly hard to use with each redesign.

#34 Posted by AdMordem (458 posts) -

Actually the Mr Bean costume is kinda funny.

#35 Posted by Phatmac (5725 posts) -

@Rhaknar: You can do whatever the fuck you want. I'm just speaking to people that come on here and hate anything IGN related or any other gaming site. It's not perfect or even that good sure, but still the interview was okay. If you didn't like it than fine. Still, no need to act like a dick about it. Guess I'm expecting too much from people.

#36 Posted by Brendan (7768 posts) -

Not bad, I've seen it before and I enjoyed it for what it was.

#37 Posted by jjnen (661 posts) -

First time I watched the show to the end (skipped through most of the cheesy jokes) and interview was pretty solid though too short. I didn't know they posted full interview separately later, maybe I'll continue to follow those.

Hating IGN doesn't help anyone here, it just makes you all look like fools.

#38 Posted by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

Interviews are the best part of the show, I loved the one with Gary Whitta. But like others i'm not a fan of the constant bombardment of jokes; but didn't find it cringe worthy.

I think this one was a lot better than the episode with Gary.

One thing though: how can Jeff be a guest AND part of the audience? Did they actually clone him? is that where the CBSi money went? not hiring new people but cloning the ones they have? GENIUS I must say.

I wish they would make content for Giant Bomb instead...

#42 Edited by Nentisys (889 posts) -

This show is fucking terrible. The "please give it up" and "make some noise" every minute was so stupid. Jesus christ this is terrible.

The actual interviews are ok, depends alot on the guest obviously.

#43 Posted by TheRealJpoe (134 posts) -

IGN & Giantbomb are my two favorite gaming sites. So it's pretty awesome to see Jeff on there. Also, Beyond!

#44 Edited by Sanj (2372 posts) -

The ending after the credits is hilarious. @16:40

#45 Posted by jelekeloy (456 posts) -

The part with Jeff on it was alright. Can't handle the rest of it. I felt the same way when Gary Whitta was on the show.

#46 Posted by tonnous24 (43 posts) -

I don't think I like Brian Altano. He seemed like an okay guy, but he is always forcing humor, and most of it is a miss.

#47 Posted by WMWA (1160 posts) -
@tonnous24 He's way better on podcasts. I think he's just out of his element on video. It does feel forced on this
#48 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4710 posts) -

It was alright.

#49 Posted by StrikeALight (1114 posts) -

The episode with Jenova Chen (around the time Journey released) was really awkward. Jeff gave a great interview though.

#50 Edited by ProjektGill (752 posts) -

I think what IGN is trying to do with their Start channel is great.

IGN has seemed to have this revolving door mentality where editors would either get laid off or leave right when readers were beginning to get to know them and with these new shows, they are able to give their site a bit more personality (other than what you can get from the podcasts).
