Very cool! I'd be interested in analyses of other GB features...

I would love, love, love it if he wrote a comedic collection of anecdotes called Tales from the Compound about his quasi-shady exploits living with a bunch of other people last decade, what with the violent parties and turned over cars and police raids. When he has spoken about that part of his life he's always relayed it in an engaging and intriguing manner. He knows how to structure and deliver information in a way that's just naturally funny.

Wouldn't 'gamer comedy' be huge if it were a thing?

And true, anecdotes are funny but wear out quick. I think good comedy is about observation and reacting. If you see things in a funny way, you can be a comedian and theoretically always have access to material. And Jeff makes things just seem funny.

I was skeptical at first but made the switch w/ a new computer. After a day of use the Windows 8 quirks weren't a problem. It's just not that big a deal, imo.

It's so rarely we see active consumer protection these days that you sometimes forget accountability is even a thing that can happen. I wonder how much the settlement is worth in total. Probably not a huge dent, but Sony as a whole is already struggling.

Totally. It's refreshing to see the FTC interested in benefiting the consumer.

its really subjective as it depends on what games they are playing.

any involving drew playing simulators, cinny playing fmv or when they just playt retro games are all my favs.

I like when they play 4-player stuff. Gang Beasts, Samurai Gun, etc.

I think many of the recent ones have been pretty stale. But the one where Jeff was out somewhere and Dan played Dota 2 was brilliant! Guessing it was like 8-10 weeks ago.

This was the 9/19/14 UPF. Pretty good! For me, it's hard to beat the ones with the original GB crew (Ryan and Vinny). I love Rorie on this year's streams, though.

Steam version fixes a ton of the issues. Game starts slow but after a couple hours you'll need to see it through to the end. Great game :)
