Or Professional Wednesdays or whatever it ends up being called.
Anyway I like the idea of this show, I'm appreciative that Giant Bomb is starting to crank out new shows. Especially a long one like this one. But I've got one major quibble with this show, it feels pretty redundant when many of these games are going to be Quick Looked or have been already anyway.
So my suggestion is to change it to a show where they only cover new DLC releases. I think there's a market demand for that kind of content and it would help further differentiate the show from others the Giant Bomb crew already has.
Let's face it DLC is likely not going away anytime soon, like or not. Giant Bomb might as well turn this trend to their advantage.
DLC, I feel as a consumer, is something that is a very risky proposition to buy and something I'd really appreciate more critical coverage of. Great games can have some of the worst DLC. So the base game is no indicator of quality.
A lotof DLC seem to be utter garbage and since they don't receive the coverage or marketing the full blown releases get it's hard to truly know until you purchase it. I feel like there usually is a lot of buzz out there on whether a game will be good or not. But DLC? That's a crapshoot. The few times I've personally bought some in the past year have generally ended up being severe cases of Buyer's Remorse. I don't think I'm alone in that experience. .
I.e. I don't need Giant Bomb's opinion on the new SimCity game (which I knew I wouldn't like) nearly as much as I do Sleeping Dogs: Year of the Snake (which looks surprisingly decent).
And DLC is often short, which means Quick Looks of them often probably show much more of them than really needs to be seen or perhaps even should be seen. So perhaps the coverage of DLC would better suited to an aggregated format show anyway.
So in short leave the game coverage to Quick Looks and make this new show a runthrough of new DLC.
