It would be pretty kick ass if Giantbomb did a "Defend your Game" segment, the same way Screened does and talk about some really obscure games. 

#2 Posted by KarlPilkington (2761 posts) -

I agree, this is a good idea.

#3 Posted by Lotus (214 posts) -

Sure, why not.

#4 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

I approve of this message!

#5 Edited by Redbullet685 (6054 posts) -

Yes. More content is great no matter what it is.
 
Edit: I already know one Ryan would pick. No one can stop Mr. Domino

#6 Posted by Eidderf (507 posts) -

That would be good, just more Quick Look Throwbacks in general would be cool, though I think they are too busy at the moment.

#7 Posted by jking47 (1219 posts) -

I also approve of this, they could show some stuff they really like but dont have a change to talk about much cause no one else does. 
 
Get the Top Men on this.

I approve!

I suspect Navarro and Rorie have slightly more free time on their hands, which allows them to come up with such segments - whereas the GB crew does not. But a regular feature like that could be a replacement for the Endurance Run, who knows?

#10 Posted by jozzy (2042 posts) -

So, it's kind of like the game of the year deliberations where Jeff and Brad nearly strangle eachother over Limbo.

Episode One: Jeff defends Mark Ecko: Getting Up
Episode Two: Ryan defends No One Can Stop Mr. Domino

Well, tell you what, I'd trade some convention coverage for more original content like that. Really, I would. I get very little from GB's convention coverage I can't get elsewhere, but the original content they create is unique and has its own style. The last week and a half has been kind of boring over here and nothing much came out of it other than a couple of messy on-location bombcasts that had frankly unacceptable audio quality. I would personally prefer the "Defend your game" segment to that...

They don't have time for more features - the absence of new WUTANG is an example that they don't have time for the features they already got.

#14 Posted by RecSpec (3864 posts) -

I'd prefer an Attack Your Game segment, where they proceed to just talk as much shit about a game as possible.

Shouldn't that be the other way around?
#16 Posted by DystopiaX (5338 posts) -

Although usually user ideas for content are shit, this is actually a pretty good idea. I'd enjoy hearing them defend their games.

#17 Posted by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

Probably won't see it any time soon with PAX east on now, them just getting out of GDC, the blitz of April and May games then finally E3. Also the rigmarole of capturing gameplay from old devices.  But I agree it would be awesome to this feature.

Yeah.  I would love to see more Quick Look Throwbacks from Giant Bomb.  Seeing games like Incredible Crisis, the Dreamcast Quick Looks like Shenmue and Chu Chu Rocket, and Michael Jackson's Moonwalker pop up on the radar in between all of the new game coverage is a nice touch.

Unfortunately it's just that time of year again :(
#20 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2417 posts) -

If I had my way, they'd just quit covering games I don't care about like Dragon Age II, and do stuff like that instead. To hell with new and relevant games.

#21 Posted by fisher81 (535 posts) -

Fuck yes.

as long as they actually deliver said videos more often then every 5 months.
 
seriously, screened, what the fuck is up with your video content being so scarce?

#25 Posted by Milkman (17071 posts) -

I AGREE

#26 Posted by Gamer_152 (14091 posts) -

Providing that they actually have the free time to do it (which I doubt slightly) and that it wouldn't detract from any of the other content those guys do I'm all for it.

that would be pretty cool to watch that.

#28 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

I hear Chuck Norris approves
#29 Posted by Tordah (2481 posts) -

I like that idea. I really enjoy the quick look throwbacks and other stuff they do related to old games.

#30 Posted by beej (1674 posts) -

More old quicklooks would be really cool even if this idea didn't end up working out (they're probably really busy), the incredible crisis quick look may be one of the greatest ever made. 

#31 Posted by StriderNo9 (1139 posts) -
 
 
@Tordah:
I think the main reason we don't see any TANG features is because a lot of the game movies have been covered. I also would love to see more QL Throwbacks too. I know the guys are busy out with GDC and now PAX so I'm not too stressed for the lack of reviews or news on the site. I did enjoy both podcast very much, a lot of people had some great stories and for me personally, I thought the audio quality was fine. Hopefully when they get some down time they can do something like this. Defend Your Game, I wanna see it.
#32 Posted by Bunnyman (213 posts) -

Good idea. Sure, they are busy, but features will come and go. I hope this one will be considered in the future.

Actually on one of the Happy Hours where it was Vinny, Dave, and Ryan they said that they pretty much don't have time for new features and were asking the chat for which features they think should go since they don't have any free time anymore. They also talked about not continuing TANG and other stuff like QOTW.

YES

yes. I approve

I concur. Good idea.

yes and then as a rebuttal they post a Defend Your Game segment.

#41 Posted by nick_verissimo (1391 posts) -

That'd actually be a really cool segment to do, even if it was only done once a month or something like that.  I think it'd be better if they could come up with two new segments and just run them biweekly so it wouldn't get stale too fast and they'd have more time to prep. new idea's.  I love Monday's aren't really all that necessary, so the time they spend on that could be allocated elsewhere.

#42 Posted by Xeiphyer (5606 posts) -

 I don't remember if I posted in here yet, but yeah that would definitely be a cool idea.
 
Though they have done some similar things with the Quicklook throwbacks, but that is sometimes just random old games, or popular ones.
 
As someone born in 1990, my first console was a snes, so I really don't have a ton of insight into many of the games from before then. It would be cool to see some of the old favourites and be explained why they are great. Although, I suppose Game Room coverage did most of that.

#43 Posted by BeachThunder (12117 posts) -

I would like that, in fact I'd like to see that from anyone, really. Sometimes I'm just baffled as to why people think certain games are good.

#44 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

They already post more videos than any other site combined in a given week. Trimming down quicklooks for that doens't seem like a good idea

#45 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Agreed!
Also, I think it would be cool to "import" the rate your movie (in this case game) over to GB as well :)

#46 Posted by Jazz (2293 posts) -

but who is going to defend Dynasty Warriors Gundam? 
.. 
Just me then?
