If this has been addressed, then I apologize, but I was searching for the "GAAAAMES!!!! LIVE" show that the guys did at the end of 2010, only to find that it no longer exists now that Justin.tv has switched over to this twitch.tv thing. I noticed that some other stuff is no longer there as well. Do we have sort of a community backup for these classic moments in Giant Bomb history, or are they now lost forever? I'm not sure if a world where I can't watch Jeff and Ryan attempt to play Sewer Shark is one that is worth living in.

The justin.tv archive is still here.

Ok, that's weird. So they are still there but don't work? Must be a bug then.

Only live moments lost are end of MXO, some area of the Xboxalypse, and the beginning of E3 2010 Day 2 Livecast. A lot of the TNT's are on Youtube but that link doesn't seem to work. :( "GAAAMES LIVE!!!" is one of the best things GB has ever done.

@mnzy: Well, the thing is that if you just go to http://www.justin.tv/giantbomb, it now automatically redirects you to http://www.twitch.tv/giantbomb. From there, if you go to their archived videos, you'll find that a LOT of stuff is missing. I don't know if other old justin.tv archives are having the same problem, but the loss of some of this stuff is a MAJOR bummer, and hopefully we have some users that have backups.

Sadly, other people I watch have also had stuff disappear.

I hate ustream and Justintv. I can never easily find what I want to there and it seems so sloppy.

#14 Posted by SquirrelGOD (501 posts) -

@Bocam: Please share how you were able to download it. The website that I use to occasionally download justin.tv videos couldn't find this video.

Does that mean the Cards against Humanity TNT is lost? Damn. Even if they are doing one this thursday. Damn.

@SquirrelGOD: I made a list. Not sure if the links still work, though.

Directed here from another thread, and thought I'd ask the same question.

Isn't this the Giant Bomb Holiday Nostalgiafest 2011? http://www.giantbomb.com/giant-bomb-holiday-nostalgiafest-2011-part-01/17-5466/

While it is a subscriber video, it is still archived on the site. If this is the correct video, then just like TNT, having dedicated archival video of it is part of the subscriber bonuses. They make no guarantees with Justin/Livestream/Twitch, which is good, because those sites delete stuff at random.

Edit: Disregard, this isn't the video they're looking for. My apologies.

It's there, I watched it earlier this week. Let me poke around.

EDIT: Bamalam.

the old streams are on youtube.

#24 Edited by FLStyle (4660 posts) -

@rkofan87: Don't post in old threads, it's been frowned upon for as long as internet forums have existed. I'm sure 20 months ago before the old streams were put on YouTube that these users didn't know that the old streams are on YouTube, but like I say, that was 20 months ago. We all know this now.

@flstyle: But you just posted in old thread too. Now I have too. Oh noooooooo!
