There were two! Both Giant Bomb East and West represented, it was glorious. The best I've seen in a while!

Great point on how awesome news doesn't garner as much coverage, if any. I definitely end up stumbling upon really cool things on news feeds from time to time, but coming across them always takes a lot of digging and for some reason all that awesome doesn't get spotlighted outside of the very rare gems that go viral over social media.
Deep down, I do want to share the sentiment that things will inevitably get better once this turn of bad happenings pass, but I feel like we've still got a long stretch of bad to go down before we'll be able to turn it around. Between the emergency meeting to be held with the UN Security Council coming up on the MH17 incident and a ground offensive unfolding in Gaza, this is where I'd go so far to say it'd take a miracle for things to suddenly get better.
On a somewhat(?!) lighter note, this may be completely out of context, but...
Honestly, I think we see miracles every day.
I couldn't help but think about a certain Insane Clown Posse classic after reading that.
In recent memory, though, and answering the question based on actual merit of games I've played, I think Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was the most fun and joy I've had playing a game with the word "Cry" in it for years, so that'd have to be my vote. Far Cry 3 vanilla would've taken it, but the story in Blood Dragon was far more fulfilling.
It's like tragedies compounded upon tragedies all over the world in recent days. What were the chances of everything transpiring like that, down to the 108 passengers who were top AIDS researchers?
Hopefully this recent trend of impossibly terrible moments gets balanced out by some miracles. I'm typically super pragmatic about world affairs, but I feel like we're overdue for a miracle now more than ever.
I remember how Jeff and Patrick played Atelier Ayesha once when they did premium new releases shows with GS (58'50); it looked nice but I don't think their playing of it did it much justice, sadly. I did appreciate the music, though!
If I wanted to give the Atelier games a shot, where would I start?
Valkyria Chronicles is definitely something they need to bring back stateside and perhaps even put something in development for the next generation. I know the sequels didn't fare so well in Japan, but I still feel like we should've seen them all stateside, as well. I've been itching for a new Valkyria Chronicles for forever.
Think of the Christmas scene during Persona 4, but that's the entire game.
Some of this didn't really need to be in spoiler tags. Like the parts describing how crazy the VN industry is over there by straight-up selling endings, I didn't know they were that bad about it! Kinda cruel!
EDIT: Weird, the WYSYWIG editor broke the spoiler tag in quotes, here.
I dunno he needs to be more animated when he streams, that whole performance was a little too chill, .
I see what you did, there.
I love how all the staff tweets on the front page are SUPER excited about this.
Wasn't Alex tweeting about setting himself on fire? That's pretty hilarious though.
I'm actually interested in seeing how his streams hold up, I don't think I've listened to Limp Bizkit since... Wrestlemania 17.
I was just looking it up since it was mentioned earlier in the thread and it looks like in previous years they had Hatsune Miku's music playing and only had videos up on those gigantic screens in the lobby area of the game. Kind of underwhelming, I expected her to actually be in the lobby in person?
Still, there are indeed unprecedented levels of anti-Miku sentiment here that needs to be addressed with some Hatsune Miku:
