Three minutes in and Dan yet again proves he is a crazy man...YEOUCH!

Another three-hour marathon o' smiles, straight ahead!

As a Californian, that boundary plan for my state is infuriating to look at.

The lord of the rings discussion really bummed me out.

Edited by TruthTellah

After hearing what he said in this podcast and seeing what happened during the Mario Party stream, it's clear Dan has a troubling case of Mario Party madness.

He needs help.

I don't know, my interest in Destiny is pretty much zero. I have a feeling they aren't going to make their money back on this one.

Ya'll just want to be like the coolest state in the Union, West Virginia represent!

Basically we said 'fuck those racist slaveholders in Virginia' and made a new state. it was hella sick.

@elwoodan: you guys started your own state because regular Viringia wouldn't let you set couches on fire.

So funny to hear GB West's side of Velvet Sundown.

Jeff loves Mario Party

I shave dry with a bic. It's really not a big deal. The pain is worth not having to lather up and wash off. Too much time wasted.

Man , another three hour podcast, this is awesome.

Edited by Lurkero

2 hours before weekly news. Now you know you're Bombcasting.

I take offense to Dan talking about how resourceful he is after mentioning he uses paper and plastic utensils because he is too lazy to wash dishes.

Brad is really doing the bombcast justice as host.

Posted by MackGyver

So after listening the Velvet Sundown part of the bombcast, besides Vinny, was the rest of the GB crew part of the Velvet Sundown quicklookas well? Which by the way is one of the best quicklooks ever.

bombcast more like longcast am i right woooooooo haha

Posted by RonGalaxy

Is dan even a person? Im not sure anymore after the last few bombcasts.

Lol, Jeff's critique of all things Fantasy.

Just a blanket statement of "it's all garbage".

Also I agree with Ryckert on this one, LotR felt boring when I was trying to read it for a 7th grade book report and I really like Game of Thrones.

Also, wtf is with the GRRM hate when you know nothing about him? Bah, I shouldn't fall for the nerd trap.

Dan is a special human being.

Posted by bboymaestro

As a man accustomed to the ritual of straight razor shaving, Dan's admittance to going straight to face hurt me. Hard.

Edited by SpaceDesperado

@danryckert so was it two mickeys or two 40s.. mickeys are like half a two-six and 40s are double

Shaving cream, put it on the board!

And another hysterical moment is born out of "I like a bargain...a bowl of forks".

As a person who makes not a lot of money and finds a way to buy all consoles it blows my mind that any of these guys (who are paid to cover video games) hold out for as long as they do. I would want my body of knowledge and experience to be as wide and varied as possible.

Posted by TheHT

What! Fantasy's great, don't be crazy.

G.I. Joe sounds like it could be alright. Never watched it when I was a kid because it always looked exceptionally stupid and jingoistic.

I find that it's a very personal thing. Some people need the newest shit as soon as possible, while others don't have that urge. I bought a PS4 for the Destiny beta because I know I'm gonna play Destiny. I usually wait for the second generation of a console before buying it because the first gen is absolute shit more often than not, but the PS4 seems solid enough to risk it.

I feel like the Bombcast has only gotten funnier and funnier since Dan's been around. Holy shit, this guy is a comedy goldmine. The clash of midwest and western culture is palpable.

Dan Ryckert, the Brick Tamland of Giant Bomb.

Mighty Max is the weird toy-driven cartoon that stays with me.

That ending. Man. That was some 90's era nihilism.

Bart Vs the Space Mutants. Fuck. The first level was utter nonsense, but it wasn't impossible. The second level, that goddamn mall, that was impossible.

Pretty sure Bart Vs. The World was also on NES, and you got to skateboard on the Great Wall of China.

I think there was a SNES game called Bart's Nightmare? That might have been the one I liked the most? Or maybe it was virtual Bart.

They were all terrible though.

Next time there's an event big enough to get CBSi to spend some travel budget, they will meet Vinny and Patrick and this will only get better.

Also sad to say, Rust got canned, so California is doomed to become Mad Max.

Special guest Jason Oestreicher next week?

Posted by cooljammer00

Khalil from Champaign is right about Epcot and those shitty Saturn booths. I think it was called "Innoventions" and it was about the inventions of the future, only every game system there was already kinda super old at the time.

I remember playing a lot of Virtua Fighter and The Little Mermaid for hours because I didn't know any better. Also Sonic games, but even then I wasn't a huge fan. It's just that Sega properties were new to me as a Nintendo kid.

Guys, not only did the boat talk in Thunder in Paradise - but Sting was there!

Wtf Dan. Wtf.

The reaction Jeff was railing against at the end of the podcast is called empathy concern. It's what people with empathy have.

Posted by FoxMulder

That sucks if the free version of Velvet Sundown no longer has voice. I had fun with it, but I don't wanna pay $6.

Posted by Jensonb

Oh THAT's what it is that's been bugging me about the beat in 'Fancy'.

It really brought back how much I wanted Jeff Green to be hired by Giant Bomb.

I guess it's more the loud reaction than "feeling" it when it hits someone else.

Edited by Chris2KLee

Dan's stupidity is part of his charm. As the other members of the bomb crew have mentioned, he may be the most American person ever.

Is this not showing up on iTunes for anyone else?
