    Is this actually live? I keep refreshing the live show page and it still says "OFFLINE" in the top left. My membership just lapsed, but I was under the impression this was non-premium.

    He tried melting egg shells. I love this son of a bitch.

    Dan unwittingly marked himself down as a professional driver. I'm really sorry man, but that's the funniest thing I'm going to read all day. Bless your heart.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Do you enjoy Drew's awkwardness on the Bombcast?. on the Bombcast board

    I wonder if this thread title is even accurate anymore. Since Jason was hired Drew has been really outspoken and assertive on the Bombcast. Never thought having an underling would turn Drew into an a...

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Best Bombcast Sound Bites?. on the Bombcast board

    I can't remember if this was from the Bombcast or a Quick Look, but somebody described a game as "if Jeff Minter had discovered _____ instead of llamas." Anyone have any idea of what I'm talking abou...

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Is Zelda - Skyward Sword really that bad?. on the The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword board

    Keep in mind that Skyward Sword isn't an awful game in the grand scheme of things. There have certainly been much worse games. But when you have The Legend of Zelda attached to your title, you have a...

    Wait, were people actually disappointed that it wasn't Dark Souls or Skyrim? Because if I remember the Internet chatter at the time of its release, it just wasn't up to the standards of the Zelda ser...

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Is Zelda - Skyward Sword really that bad?. on the The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword board

    I thought it looked great. I know a few people were denouncing the aesthetic leading up to the game's release, but impressionism isn't a style you often see in big polygonal games so I was happy to se...

    I need to set aside some time for this latest Sequelitis, but I'm glad to hear someone else criticizing Skyward Sword. I think if I had heard more criticism before I wouldn't have spent $60 on that g...

    Oh my God, they just used that new Brad GIF in the best way.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Freedom Stream. on the General Discussion board

    Jeff and Dan play off each other really well. If I can be honest, I haven't seen Jeff have this solid a rapport with someone since Ryan.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Giant Bomb hires Dan Ryckert and Jason Oestreicher. on the General Discussion board

    Man, this is going to be at least another two weeks of learning to differentiate between Dan and Jason's voices on the Bombcast. Took me a month with Jeff and Ryan (yeah, laugh if you want).But since...

    While I disagree with Mister V's use of the term "pissing match," I realize now that this was the wrong thread to bring the topic up, and I'm sorry for derailing it.

    If it is Dan, good on him. I haven't seen a lot of his work, but his stuff on the Bombcast has been thoroughly funny. But after seeing some of Elizabeth's Simins' tweets on the E3 Bombcasts, I really...

    It's funny, without Jeff on the show for this week's Bombcast, Drew is a lot more talkative and assertive.That's right.Drew is being oppressed.

  • DavidMerrick posted a message in the forum topic Russ Pitts leaving Polygon (Insert GB hiring joke here). on the General Discussion board

    The amount of Polygon hate is really saddening. For every great, in-depth feature Patrick writes, Polygon has three. Granted, they have more people on staff able to write said features, but it really...
