You can now filter search results with text. Example: "person: john" will search only person pages for "john".
The great driving and great looks of Forza 5 get buried by bad menus, frustrating AI, and a disappointing number of "opportunities" to spend additional money.
Black Flag takes a sharp left turn from the series' traditional progression, but the ways in which it diverges are what make it one of the most purely entertaining games in the franchise.
The third outing of Capcom's other, more ridiculous zombie franchise ably walks the line between approachability and the series' trademark off-the-wall quirk.
We burn the midnight oil wrapping up the day's press conferences with Jeff Green, Brad Muir, Michael Pachter, Ben Gilbert, and Alexander Sliwinsky.
I missed this live. Glad it was posted so quickly.
Can't wait for this to actually be up for download haha! E3 has been.... interesting so far this year
@Darksaw: You can always go watch the video on justin.tv. The audio is pretty choppy, though. They were having bandwidth issues.
I want to punch the icon SO BAD.
Wait, so the part when it went down is not here?
Tobuscus was sooo bad :(
I missed the video, what went down?
It should be, remember the twitch stuff has a lot of dead air on it.
@Undeadpool: The video went down I'm assuming
It's there between 1:37-1:48
When an analyst is craving for new IP you know that things have been stale for a while.
Yeah Brad stop dicking around on forums during the bombcast :P
Ah! In that context, I took it to mean "It's going down" IE: something is occurring.
God, Alex, just gahhhhH!!!!!!!
Could have sworn this was way longer live. I must have been just shit tired.
What's the fascination with NeoGaf among Giant Bomb folks? From my time spent there it feels like it's only populated by spergy 15 year old fanboys.
@Javes: You probably don't spend much time reading NeoGAF, then. At least among video game discussion boards, it's a pretty reasonable place (with strict moderation helping to clear up the worst of it).
Edit: Beyond the quality of posts on NeoGAF (which I suppose is subjective, but I spend a lot of time there), the website is brought up a lot because it's highly trafficked, many news stories break there, and many members of the games industry have accounts there.
An other Pachter prediction... we will see if he is capable of being right.
It's really odd how in audio this comes across really well, but watching it live it kind of seems awkward, at time cringe worthy, and sometimes a cluster fuck. Weeeeiiiiiirrrrrd.
Love how Pachter injects some subtle sexism into his commentary. Hey dude, young men who aren't into games, dads and grandpas bought the Wii too yknow.
sucks they didn't talk about shootmania. with brad basically saying "let's not talk about shootmania".
even if the game is no good I'd still like to hear some words on it.
based on the Nintendo press conference today Pachter was right about them.
I still say the treyarch ones are shit
Pachter haters can eat a bag of dicks.
Anyone else able to find this on Itunes yet?
Whats a Tobuscus?
God, could Pachter whine more about internet trolls? Was he drunk?
Pachter needs to stop reading NeoGAF. Hell everybody needs to stop reading NeoGAF.
I had never heard Pachter speak before. Huh. Does he always sound so tired?
YO GUYS, UNFINISHED SWAN!
Also: shoutouts to Jeff Green's Grateful Dead tape collection.

Gonna be honest, I found this one to be kinda boring. Everyone seemed completely beat and less than enthused to be there (sans Muir, of course).
Pachter says alot of bullshit but he is a very humble dude. I like him a lot.
In conclusion: Fuck NeoGAF.
Pachter, Jeff green, and Brad Muir is gonna be a tough guest lineup to top.
Pachter is so right. If you disregard Asia the market for MMO's isn't extremely large, certainly not large enough to bank off of monthly subscription fee's. You have these games competing over a market that it's in all likelihood a one game a person market. With ordinary games the market is deep because consumers return for more, I just don't see many gamers willing to have multiple subscriptions, they'll likely choose "their game" and be done with it. That's such a shallow market. Not to mention this whole MMO bubble is essentially built on a bubble one game built. We're not entirely sure WoW wasn't just a phenomenon that hit in a special time and place, MMO's as a whole may be a genre that was limited to a certain time and a certain market that has since passed.
Man, Pachter is obsessed. It was really funny when Alex said "You have GOT to stop doing that" after Pachter mentioned neogaf for the 100th time.
Muir is the best, he could just be one of the crew. Jeff Green was great as well.
Feels weird listening to this while playing SWTOR
Alexander Sliwinsky... I'm pretty sure it's spelled "Alexander Sliwinski"
Absolutely. Typical Polish last name.
haha, sometimes i imagine pacther as a senile old man
Alex Navarro and Brad Muir?
I fucking take that back, Muir's being awesome today.
Boats are the helicopters of Assassin's Creed.
Pachter was getting annoying there. His whole thing on Watch Dogs was quite pretentious and then he was talking about the implausability of the smart phone. ITS A GAME, it could happen in a game. I've seen far more insane premises then that.
Use your keyboard!
