But at least I know, in my heart, that they are working on something Great.  It's good to have a site you can trust.

Crysis 2 Quick Look. I'm pretty sure that counts as a video.  
(Frodo likes what he sees...)

You're very perceptive.
 
But no, seriously, while it is weird that theres no videos today (other than the quick look that I saw live) the duders need to rest after the month or so of insane trips. I don't mind if they don't do that much this week and relax; although, saying that, I assume it's really because they are doing other stuff and we'll have a ton of content later on in the week and next week because of it (because they have a history of working to hard haha).
 
TNT Tomorrow and Happy Hour on Friday, so you know, theres always something to look forward to on Giantbomb. I don't know if you noticed but they recorded the podcast the same day they released it. Thats 'cus their schedules are all out of whack from all the travel and i'd imagine sickness factor as well. 
Man, the world tour is gonna be grueling (on them) i can already tell haha

There have been a few days here and there without videos.  
 
But a review did go up and despite no videos it never means they are just chillin in the office. 
Also, weird thread.

Every other whiskey site records the podcast the same day they release it lol. 
Anyway, they do a lot more than just make videos/write reviews...Jeff talks about talking to companies to get previews, get review copies, make sure everything's coming in, etc., so there's a lot more behind the scenes than just creating content.

This is not Ign or gamespot you can't expect daily content but you can expect high quality content.

To be honest, it does seem that total content has gone down since the subscription introduction.

Naw man, he probably meant "No videos is today!".
Totally makes sense.
 
I like videos, but I'd rather the video crew makes them pretty, rather than just pumpin' 'em out.

Well guys, we did have three big conventions in a row, and there really isn't a plethora of noteworthy games this month. Just give it time, I'm sure things will pick up.

How do you guys think the Giant Bomb crew chills at the office?  If we could see that long room during lunch, QLs would never be the same.  Well, that is to say, they all get along and spend down-time there.

Did you see the actor playing Bilbo?  Perfect came to mind.  Think the whole new director thing was hype?

@DystopiaX:  GB usually records it early (they actually used to record it on Fridays the week before but I suspect since they are bigger they may not anymore, most recently it seemed they were recording it on mondays) but ya they may start recording it same day, I dont know.
 
As for the other stuff, ya I know. It's all part of creating content  haha They couldn't have early quicklooks if they didn't have review copies, or get Devs in the door to show off their game in a quick look EX if they didn't do all that stuff.
 
Ya, they use them for reviews too, but GB's best reviews are what we see in quicklooks. You get a pretty good idea of how a game will be in the first 20+ minutes of a game. Granted it's not going to tell you as much as a review, and reviews are still an important part for researching if something is worth your money, but I think more so than that people come for the quicklooks and the podcast. And of course the other content that they started doing as well.
 
There's a lot they do, and it all stems from them speaking with developers and publishers and getting their look of the game, advanced review copy, or whatever. 
 
It all comes together to create the content. =)

My fault, sorry about that. I must've not checked Giant Bomb until the morning after.
