Why is the image a paper print of the Bloodborne disc? Guess I'll find out.

Edit, damn rebox thief

Yay!!

@danryckert: you wouldn't have brought anything constructive to the discussion.

probably.

I don't get Jeff. For people who usually watch the WWE, this year's Mania was pretty much as good as it gets; which hey...it wasn't perfect, but as someone who likes wrestling we take what we can get with these things.

If THAT event didn't do it for him at all, I just don't know why he bothers keeping up with it. He just seems to absolutely hate every aspect of it, and every time the topic comes up he just drags everything down with the incessant negativity; which is usually aimed at the things they actually get right.

Not that it's my place to tell him what to do with his time, but...why would you keep watching? It it just curiosity? Because the Attitude Era isn't coming back, and I'm sure he knows this.

Yay, Jason!

Brad knows that he wants to open pandora's box and get into wrestling. Embrace it man.

Posted by Matiaz_Tapia

A bit sad they are still not at "that" part in Bloodborne. Really wanted to hear their non-spoilery reaction. But there's always next week! At least it's exciting that they still don't know :) ( Tho they could still be disappointed, that stuff is hit or miss depending on how much optional content they play)

Posted by EngineNo9

Man, I really wish they would keep all the wrestling talk out of the Bombcast, at least the vast majority of it.

Posted by dgib

me and jeff have the exact same feelings on wrestling, its uncanny.

Nah, it's pretty minor. Most of us are alright with it.

Posted by SkullPanda1

@engineno9: I don't like wrestling, but I like that they discuss what they're interested in. Helps keep things fresh without feeling fake.

What's the Haps? Someone is stealing Prime Time Sam Roberts gimmick.

Posted by NoneSun

@spiderjerusalem: I guess some people just have more of a cynical or pessimistic mind about things? And maybe talking about it out loud for the podcast make it sound worse than how he feels about it in his head.

Also, a few weeks back I got Darick Robertson's autograph. He was nice. Saw him with his wife and kids too.

Is wrestling the old Dota?

Posted by zeo12

Cool they are doing the whole live commentary on the e3 press conferences again, the EA one last year was the funniest specially with the smoke at the end.

Posted by Libb

@logan528: Look at you, dropping Opie & AnthonyJimmy references on GiantBomb.

I love Jeff, but man... he sounds SUPER BORED all the time on every content he is in...

I miss old peppy Jeff

Posted by Insertcoins

Based on how Jeff described watching wrestling I've come to a conclusion. WWE=Anime.

Posted by valeo

I thought I accidentally clicked on the new Powerbombcast. Get that shite off the bombcast, please.

There are long running dramas that are practically the same thing disguised for different audiences.

  • Soap operas = women
  • Wrestling = stereotypical Men
  • Anime = "geeks"

All equally ridiculous.

Posted by MajorToms

GTA V, coming on PC in 2 weeks is great, but still no Red Dead Redemption port is pretty lame. Welp, at least Witcher 3 looks like it will be a more beautiful RDR.

Edited by RecSpec

I quit Puzzle and Dragons and ended up playing the Japanese Puyo Puyo Quest, which is a "clone" of it. Apparently it makes SEGA over 500 million yen monthly (Over 4 million dollars). No wonder console development is being abandoned.

Edited by voordewind

This early opinion on Bloodborne is so naive. They definitely have no idea what's coming. Now I can't wait for the next week podcast.

I don't know that works. I mean, there's anime and there's... you know, "anime". There's anime as Japanese TV and movies that happen to be animated, and in that list there's a bunch of stuff that is just movies and TV and works as well or as poorly as any other TV show or movie.

Then there's, you know, "anime". What people say when they derisively say "anime", which is almost a genre unto itself, or rather a few genres. Creepy fetish weirdness or long running action shows for obsessive teenagers.

Wrestling and soaps are wrestling and soaps and I can't stand either ever. There's never a time when you can claim either of those happen to also be an award winning movie or a really solid TV drama. I don't feel "it's Japanese and animated" automatically slots alongside those.

Posted by divergence

yeah I'm so sick of the box art with the guy holding some weapons looking down. Please. Just make the cover all black with gold, silver, or white font of the title and nothing else.

Audio is only working in the left speaker on my headphone.

@nonesun: I get that problem too. If you dl it and play it in your own music player it should work fine.

Edited by BisonHero

The Axiom Verge hype is real.

Also, I still think Metroidvania is a bullshit term because they really just mean Super Metroid-like 99% of the time. All Symphony of the Night added to the formula was RPG shit like XP, RPG stats that scale up, equipping random loot drops, etc.

Except OH WAIT most "Metroidvanias" other than the GBA Castlevanias don't use those elements. The vast majority of them are just games like Axiom Verge or Guacamelee that have no grinding or RPG mechanics and just have the usual Super Metroid action platforming mechanics and a finite number of collectibles to find.

Edited by hollitz

Well, I'll get to Axiom Verge eventually. But I can't see myself putting down Bloodborne for the next couple months.

So weird hearing people say Bloodborne's not grabbing them. Very few games can take hold of me the way that Bloodborne has. It's certainly the only Souls game that has. I do think Dark Souls is maybe the closest thing I've played to a perfect game, but I appreciated that game a lot more the more that I thought about it. Bloodborne gripped me out of the box.

.

That's a really dumb comparison generally made by people who have had either a very limited exposure to or no real knowledge of anime as a medium pretty much like someone basing their opinion of the entire medium of film on a few michael bay movies .Sure there's a very popular genre of anime that tends to be on the more ridiculous side of things called shounen which is aimed at a younger audience around the age 10 to 16. These bar a few expectations such a hunter x hunter tend to be rather bad,examples of bad shounen being Naruto , Bleach , DBZ and Inuyasha.There are however completely different genres within anime such as Seinen and Josei which are aimed at adults and are far more mature and varied in tone,themes and execution. Some examples being Monster, L.O.T.G.H, Mushishi,Serial Experiments Lain, Nana ,Baccano, honey and clover, Kino's Journey,Tatami Galaxy, Tehxnolyze and a boatload of other shows have great nuanced writing ,realistic multifaceted characters and depth things you just cant say about the WWE.

Oh please. I've watched anime for 20 years. I feel like you wrote that because you just wanted to prove you can list a bunch of anime. Most anime plots are nonsensical and some are appealing - just like everything else. I haven't watched every anime, but an all around good anime is difficult for me to find. Of course this is all opinion based, but even among the list you provide I thought the plots were nonsense - especially Baccano.

Most people who view these comments won't know about individual anime so I listed anime as a thing rather than trying to list specific anime that exemplify long running dramas for "geeks". There is also science fiction and fantasy that are even more difficult to categorize, but those genre have their ridiculous dramas too.

I would also mention mainstream Western comic books, but those things can be even crazier than the craziest anime and WWE plots.

@noelveiga: You're both right. I should have specified what I meant by "anime".
