    The RUN GFB twist should have been really funny, but I was way more interested in seeing Samantha complete her kickass streak. Genuine skill trumped by planned collusion. This is what it must be like ...

    Jeff's. As entertaining as Dan's tales are, especially the ones used to close the last Bombcast, they primarily involve Dan doing something stupid/childish, and hijinks ensue. Which isn't bad--I've l...

    Brad, this is great. Thanks a lot.

    Alright, we need to start using a different term than "objective opinion" or "objective reviewer" because these things do not exist. I'm not even talking about "100% objectivity," I'm talking 10%. Yo...

    Hey, hand up here. Used to be an arts editor for my university's newspaper, and while that's not the most prestigious of jobs it was still paid and entailed ethics and free copies of movies/CDs and t...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
