I still don't get the point of this and a potential "steam box." Essentially, Valve wants to make a PC console, which I guess is ok, but one of the things I like about my PC is that when I'm not using it for games, its still a computer. I need a computer for school and my daily life, the fact that my computer ALSO plays games is just an added bonus. I guess I'm just not really seeing who this is for. If I already have a computer, why would I buy a Steam box?

And people seem to be forgetting that all of this will be running on PC's, you know, the machines that let you do quite a lot of shit like running multiple OS's...

Not to be a dick, Alex, but saying 'living room' over and over again doesn't really clarify what this is supposed to do.

A living room, what's not to get? A standard home entertainment setup with a big screen in a big room with a couch in front of it should be the stereotypical image that comes to your mind.

What I get from that is that both systems will look more or less the same but get to that point in totally different ways.

Same message I got. PS4 has a bigger pool of resources, One has more "tools" to help squeeze efficiency. PC keeps on truckin'.

And Ryse (among other titles) is running at a lower resolution (1600 x 900) instead of 1080p which is sad but it is launch so ehh I guess.

Is this the stream where MS backtracks on having a Kinect in every box?

I hate it because it means too many phone calls from my parents asking how to do everything all over again

I was fine with it, and my initial reaction was "well, it's about time they did this." I hope the proceeds go to improve the site, that's all.

It's not like Jeff's delivery is pathetic and forced, he fucking goes for it. I actually downloaded the non-premium one for the adz.

I didn't even know that there was another version of the podcast under the premium section. I'll stick to listening to the regular one if the ads don't get too out of hand.

I think it's hilarious with Jeff using his radioman's voice. This is not unlike how Rev3Games does things.

Yeah, I hate in podcasts when you hear an ad and the voice ends up being that stereotypical sales pitch kind of tone which irritates me. Jeff is good at delivering the lines in a way that doesn't sound grating to me.

So I guess this week's Bombcast marks the first one to have an ad? I honestly had zero issue with that even though it caught me off guard at first, but if this means that GB can increase their worth and better convey to the higher ups how popular their podcast is then I support them on trying this out.

I haven't listened all the way through yet so I'm only assuming that there was only the one ad. I wonder if this is going to be become a regular thing or if there will be multiple ones in the same Bombcast.

What are your thoughts on the first Bombcast ad?
