PAX Prime 2012: The Giant Bomb Panel

#101 Posted by DeF (4979 posts) -

"I'm an astronaaauuuuut!!!" almost had me in tears :D

#102 Posted by DefAde (265 posts) -

WOW... the back of my head hurts from laughing so hard for so long

#103 Posted by emem (1974 posts) -

Never heard of Torque, but I really like Ice Cube (who doesn't...) so I'll check it.

#104 Posted by CookieMonster (2449 posts) -

Damn, the guys were on form, especially Jeff and Patrick. Q&A was pretty much meme free this time too. Great panel.

"I'm an astronaut!"

Don't run this one into the ground, fellow forum folk. Appreciate it, reference it sparingly, design a couple of shirts around it, but this is too good to be milked dry.

the fucker with the YOLO SWAG question deserved more boos.

#107 Posted by Soulblitz (350 posts) -

Gonna be totally honest and say I genuinely don't get the president t-rex joke. Dunno whether being outside of the US has anything to do with it, but yeah, can someone help me out?

This was absolutely hilarious! Better than any straight-up comedy show. I laughed manically on several occasions, so i'm really glad i've been home alone this past hour. All the guys were on top form - it was definitely the best panel they've ever done!

If Giant Bomb ever had a panel in the UK, i would be there in a heartbeat.

Jeff is a funny motherfucker.

Right, so I'm at a turning point. Let's see which dumb question is gonna get me to stop watching the video out of disgust. My money's on the inevitable Endurance Run question.

Was expecting a ER reveal since thats where they said they would have another last year, was hoping someone would ask.

If Colonial Marines was on iPhone Patrick would call it the greatest thing ever.

Jeff looks like he's on the losing end of a bukkake video.

Can not unsee!

Oh shit! They got Invisible Obama to open for "Dave Lang"!

[Edit] And Jeff is amazing in this one!

Obama? Wasn't that meme from the legitimate rape guy from Piers Morgan Tonight?

@Bourbon_Warrior: google "Eastwooding"

#115 Posted by SerHulse (688 posts) -

@Bourbon_Warrior: I think he means the empty chair that Clint Eastwood was talking to during the RNC that was supposed to be Obama. Here.

I think Endurance Runs are well and truely over. It's sad, because I think something like a Dark Souls ER would have been amazing content for GB.

poor brad :(

An awesome panel. Everyone was on top form, but my god Jeff was on fucking fire.

#119 Posted by zombie2011 (5049 posts) -

I would be happy if they stopped taking questions, It seems most the people go up there just because they feel like it, not because they have a good question to ask.

#121 Posted by Fistfulofmetal (686 posts) -

so the Cards Against Humanity thing is the new endurance run!

#122 Posted by Jeric (146 posts) -

Oh, hell yeah! Don't got enough time to watch it all right now, but hell yeah!

People say that after every ER.

Great panel, wish I could have been at the convention for some of these indie games.

jeff was on fire.. i so wish they came to pax Australia.

#127 Posted by Eboria (62 posts) -

Giant Bomb+Cards Against Humanity=Awesome times.

#128 Posted by Falx (347 posts) -

No ska?

#129 Posted by Baal_Sagoth (1297 posts) -

I wondered where this would go with all the talk about the more improvisational nature of this year's panel but it ended up being absolutely wonderful. Excellent mix of content and jokes - I actually don't recall earlier episodes being this amusing but excitement about the new shit might of course figure into it.

I'm also loving the 'Cards...' plan and can't wait for that content to happen!

Perhaps I didn't get it either but I still laughed my ass off. It was just completely ridiculous and they were so into it - if it referenced anything, I don't know.

#131 Posted by Athadam (705 posts) -

Anyone else notice the black blot from the hanging mic on Drew's camera?

#132 Edited by Thiefsie (99 posts) -

Come to Melbourne, Australia and I'm there...!

I'll bring a boomerang and a kooooala bear, and play some Bowie...

Clint Eastwood pretended to talk to an invisible Obama at the Republican Convention, and looked completely insane.

I'm from England and even I knew that, you guys must not watch the news.

Best thumbnail on the site, I couldn't look at it without laughing you absolute bastards.

EDIT- Brad Muir completely awestruck by recieving that donut.

Is there no end of patrick's hipster and snarkiness? 
 
Ugh. Miss Carrie Gouskos.

I have to say that I really liked him on that panel.

#137 Edited by Zripwud (247 posts) -

@Shtinky: You crazy dude?! Only Drew, Vinny or Dave could do a Dark Souls ER and not die. I mean, really die... in real life... from death. And they are way to busy for something like that.

Jeff was referencing a "speech" that actor/director Clint Eastwood gave at the Republican National Convention (its like PAX but for generally rich, white, and sometimes racist people who call themselves a political party). Eastwood spent over 10 minutes talking to an empty chair with an imaginary Barack Obama. That's why Jeff made to joke about the TRex Presidente and looked to the empty chair. And then Ryan talked about how topical it was. And then I wrote this comment essplaining it all.

And then I'm reiterating that Ryan gave that explanation of the joke on the panel thus making it even better and more topical.

Love the dude that gets a donut and tries to high-five the donut guy but can't high-five him since he's holding the box in one hand and a donut in the other. So... he tries to touch donuts.

Good job generalizing there.

And just like that I lost all respect for Eastwood, is he getting senile or is that the most awkward political stunt I have ever seen? The funny thing is Obama is a excellent debater and would of destroyed all those questions, I bet Eastwood is the kind of republican that blames the economy on Obama and says capturing Osama was all thanks to Bush...
