It was really, really good until you got to SSFIV. 
 
There's 35 SSFIV characters. You just said the number of characters SFIV has. And I'm sorry but your "Street Fighter expert" is completely useless. Is he just button bashing or what?

What he said, everything was fine up until SSFIV. I'm actually very lenient towards beginner players if they want to cover it, everyone does at the moment. What I was actually annoyed by was the lack of research. Things like guessing the amount of characters during the game-play session is only going to damage the show.

That was great, especially the Spanish commentary pack.

Fair enough on the number of fighters. I guess we don't think is as much of a deal to people who aren't die hard fans of the series (it's a little nit-picky).
Honestly if thats the only thing you guys didn't like then I think we're doing somthing right.
Appreciate the feedback, we'll take it on board. Keep it coming!

That's good stuff Danny. The humour was spot on in tone as usual from you guys,makes a big change from humour in pretty much every other gaming show.I've been following CG since the beginning so I know this is what you guys always aimed for.
 
One complaint would be that the background music is sometimes a little too loud at times and kind of drowns out the speaker - that's one of my pet peeves.Background music is a bit on the repetitive side too , though that wouldn't be as noticeable if the volume was lower.
 
People complaining about the number of characters mistake need to get out more. The GB guys constantly make mistakes like that during the QLs, it's no big deal in that 'live' setting.

This is awesome, pretty inspirational stuff to be honest, especially from a fellow irishman.

That was pretty damn good and surprisingly funny. Good job.

I'm also kind of curious to know more about the credit you gave to the Gamespot staff, what kind of stuff have they helped you out with?

For the Killzone skit, I hope you got pink eye! 
 
Good episode. Pretty ballsy to show Mo playing soccer like that. The indy stuff looked like good fun, too. 
 
Keep it up.

Thanks very much for the feedback guys, we really appreciate it. We plan to better the show with every monthly episode, and maybe make somthing really memorable (or at least make people forget about "Game Damage" ugh.....)

The site was founded years ago before Giant Bomb was created. The guys on this site, and on Gamespot have always been cool to us; lending us support and feedback on stuff we've made in the past. Considering many of the sites staff members came together from the Gamespot community all those years ago, it felt right to thank their staff (past & present) for all their feedback, help & inspiration. We have great admiration for Giant Bomb and Gamespot.

Congrats.  I thought it was really well done.  My only personally issue with it is the same I level at the Giantbomb cast.  Why swear?  I reduces the amount of people that can get exposure to. it is also slightly stereo typical of how people that play games are viewed. 
That being said, I thought it was really well made and it did make me laugh.  I look forward to seeing more.
