The clock strikes the hour and the web traffic begins.

I wonder how much Dr. Tracksuit will come out as Jeff reads off Best Styyyyyyyyle during the video recap.

I'm guessing Hottest Mess will be Most Disappointing with Unity replacing Destiny.

Edited by Nightriff

I look forward to listening to this one, nice and short and HOTTEST MESS is always a great discussion.

EDIT: Anyone know how many days there are going to be? Typically it is 5 but are they doing more?

Yeah! This is the first year that I've actually kept up with these each day, so I'm just sitting here refreshing iTunes since I got to run and want to listen in my car. Anyone know when it will go up there?

Edit: Got it! It just showed up.

Posted by RWBladewing

If someone can post the times of when "Best Moment or Sequence" begins and ends it'd be much appreciated. Still in the middle of a few things that seem likely to be spoiled during that section.

I'm doing the same thing! It normally goes up about ten minutes after it shows up here, but today it seems to be taking a little longer.

EDIT - Also these podcasts are absolutely amazing and thank you so much to the guys for making them.

"I said anyone, not you". Fantastic!

Edited by Sen0r_Awes0me

@alo81: Much appreciated. Gonna store some segments in a vault until Feb

Edited by Nightriff

Not loading into iTunes for anyone else?

Happened yesterday for me and I gave up on trying to listen to it as quickly as possible and it eventually downloaded when I wasn't paying attention.

EDIT: Downloading now

Best Local MP sounds like a category made for the mounting of friends.

Thanks, that was the one I was worried about. :D

@brad Downcast can't see the new episode yet, rss may not have updated.

Edited by alecman

@august: yeah me too, can't see the new episode in my iphone.

Edit: nvm it's there now yay

Posted by RWBladewing

@alo81: Thanks a bunch. Considering Hottest Mess ends around 20:00 that's actually a much shorter segment than I'd have figured. Maybe something was so awesome there was no debate. Really curious about what won now...

Posted by Sterling

only 90 minutes? wha? Tomorrow better be 4 hours and there better be some hot debating.

Edited by Mystyr_E

doubt it would've won or made the list but was hoping somebody would mention the ending to Shovel Knight

when Shield Knight walks over having survived the last battle and just lays beside you

You shoudl add which game that is spoiler for :) Not a prob for me, but just in case :)

Assassin's Creed wasn't even that fucked up... Jeez... I knew they were gonna shit on it in this category but it's still pretty annoying. I sound like a broken record saying this, but I went through the entire game with only one glitch which was falling through the world... You still can't fucking play Master Chief collection consistently. Halo was easily the hottest mess this year...

still playing up MCC's failings i see...

@nightriff: 5 days, 4 categories each day i believe.

Sunset Overdrive really appeals to me with its style. I don't have the same hangups about the 90s and that pop punk as these guys seem to. Old/ageing punks and modern hipsters seem to have a real problem with it.

Playing up? How is it even possible to play up that game's failings? The online straight up didn't work for a lot of people who played that game for well over a month. It's Halo, that just should not happen and is hugely embarrassing for MS.

Wait, how was Lethal League not even MENTIONED during best local multiplayer?!? What the hell?

already did, did wrong formatting first time. Wish site had a "preview message" thingy

I still find it so weird that the GB crew likes South Park. I mean, I can totally see Dan liking it, but South Park is such lazy, base, first-draft comedy.

Best moment or sequence ends at 37 Mins in

Edited by Brodehouse

My Best Moments were the In Your Heart Shall Burn reveal in Dragon Age Inquisition, the late game sequences in Transistor where Royce Bracket calmly explains the nature of the Process and the Transistor, and the Tinker Knight boss in Shovel Knight. From the fake-out fight to falling through the floor and the reveal of his mech.

The opening of Valiant Hearts is a best moment for me. You watch your middle aged Frenchman Emile reenlisting, the sergeants scream at him to move forward and everyone does and you get handed a standard and everything looks as pristine and gallant as 19th century warfare ever was. And then you run out towards the enemy, the rallying cheers quiet, the skies darken and the 20th century industrial warfare meat grinder begins.

Patrick's "Oh Jesus Christ" response to Jeff's "You could get good at it but fuckin why" is maybe the most resonant thing I've heard Patrick say.

Can't believe Ubisoft did not win hottest mess. That company released a series of steaming piles of shit this year.

Thank you.

Posted by Phished0ne

That best moment catagory really fucked me off. Valiant Hearts should've won but its just so easy to pick a lighthearted 'funny' scene from something over something that is a downer, but the way that scene was done is amazing.

Edited by NeoCalypso

The fact that Alex actually tried to negotiate Luftrausers off the Best Styyyyyyyyyyle category is absolutely absurd.

I am the internet. I am super angry about everything. I super lucky that I happen to have all the right opinions because it informs me everyone else has the wrong opinions.
