That time they played the video game and were snarky and sarcastic about it.

Command and Conquer Renegade. 12 years old, poorly reviewed and still anywhere from 50-100 people online at any time, which is more than enough for 1-2 full servers. Also, the modding community for that game is insane and on par with things like Quake and Unreal.
Also, it's totally awesome.
FUCK YA! I'm one of them. Even got a friend who never played the original into it and it blew his mind.
Have been playing the Command and Conquer Renegade X remake non stop for the last few weeks. People loved the game so much that they rebuilt the fucking thing in another engine just so they could keep playing it after EA shut down the games servers. The PC community doing stuff like that is why I love them so much.
I already booked the week off from work, but I'm afraid I won't get it this year as the folks at work are a-holes as of late. Interested in seeing how it turns out. Jeff seems to be pretty down on it. Hope there will be a lot of big news and something to get excited about. Been a while since there was a game that got me excited.
- A stickied thread like this where each day they sit down in front of a camera and read a handful of the suggestions people make and why they are stupid and will never do them.
- A segment called "Knee Jerk". The guys browse various other news sites and after reading an article they give their knee jerk reactions to what they read without any chance to do research or look into it.
- A show called "Time till Brad" where Brad plays any and all games that have a limited/numbered life system like the old Mario games. Brad must then play the game in one sitting until he ether beats the game or loses all his lives. If he loses all his lives and hits a game over screen the show just ends and he moves onto the next game. At the end of the year they total how may games he beat and how many beat him. Alternate show title of "Beating Brad" or "Brad Beats" could work.
- I want them to get special toilet paper that has a subscribers name written on each sheet. Then set up a camera in the bathroom at eye level and every time they go to take a shit they read off the names of each person on the paper they grab before wiping while looking straight into the camera saying "This is what your money paid for."
Or another Endurance Run. I don't know.
I knew the day would come when people would be leaving Giant Bomb, but now that it's hear idk what to think. The place is not going to be the same. I feel like none of the folks being mixed and matched in this set up have a chemistry I enjoy together but time will tell I guess. I have no idea what the bombcast is going to be like now. Brad and Drew never talk so I guess it's just going to be Jeff talking to himself.
Anywho. Best of luck Vinny. Gotta do what's right for you and your family and I wish ya all the best. But on a selfish note, I wish you were staying.
I hope so as Twitch is hot garbage right now. The fact that most archives are only watchable at 720p+ is insane to me. There are more people out there that can only watch 480p then those that can watch 720p. It's ass backwards that they don't start people at a lower resolution and then allow higher later. There's several people I want to watch, but because of the above mentioned I can't. So if Google buying them makes that happen then I'm all for it.
I don't really know what to post, since I only first heard about anyone at GB quite recently and all......I read about this incident on Giant Bombs Wikipedia page, but I never realized how much people thought of this guy...just that thought alone makes me feel sad about this :(
I know it's probably disrespectful to ask this, and I apologize if it is, but I am just wondering.... why, or uhm..how did he...you know...what caused his unfortunate passing?
It was never really made public knowledge to respect family wishes.
His father said it was sleep apnea.
I believe a part of his brain went pop while sleeping due to complications from his sleep apnea. He had been really stressed with his wedding and I remember them talking about how crazy hot it was leading up to it and on his wedding day. All that just lead to it happening a few days after he got married.
I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a few months before Ryan's passing so it hit extra hard for me. Especially because I'm close to his age and in worse shape then he was. So when I go to bed at night, especially after a very hard few days, I wonder if I will wake up the next morning.
