@trombonetony: Try unsubscribing and resubscribing to the premium RSS. There was issues or changes done to the link that made it not work for some (including me).

@rorie: Just popping in to say that the podcast is downloading just fine now without the brackets. Thanks guys!

I'm having the same problem with Doggcatcher on Android. I can download every other podcast from the premium feed except for the Bombcast.

A clue came in the form of this error message:

"java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal character in path at index 57: http://v.giantbomb.com/podcast/Giant_Bombcast_04_08_2014_[Premium]-04-07-2014-3324709291.mp3"

I'm not sure what changed on the feed but it maybe it's the square brackets.

The feed appears to have updated a little earlier today with URLs like the following:

  • http://www.dev.giantbomb.com:8080/videos/maybe-enemy-starfighter-is-the-space-shooter-we-ve/2300-8723/

This doesn't appear to be reachable for me (times out after a while).

Let me know if you need more info.

With it being on sale for a couple more hours now on Steam, I was interested in picking it up. Have the issues been fixed in the last couple months?

Starting around the mid life of Counter Strike but didn't play it much back then because I was terrible. Played mods mostly.

I really got into Source though. Never competitively, mostly pub.

I submit this for the uninitiated who might have heard it in some recent electronic remixes. I remember it much more fondly 4 minutes ago then I do now.

CS:GO took me a bit to get used too (hitboxes mostly) but I have the game in the cart now and will probably play a bunch once it's out and I find a good server.

Personally I don't think it should. Not the review score anyway.

Also I'm not a reviewer so I'm not going to pretend to know about or speculate on how they do their fucking job.

What do you mean by virtual memory?

It's basically a section of your hard drive that is used as RAM. This is especially useful for people that have a small amount of physical RAM. 3GB could be close to the limit, depending on the game you are playing.

To check what Windows has set your virtual memory too, right-click on Computer > Properties. On the right side, click Change Settings. Click on the Advanced tab. Under Performance, click Settings. Click the Advanced tab. Under Virtual Memory it should show a value. Currently mine is 3965 MB. If you go into Change... it will usually be set to Automatically manage. If so, that shouldn't be your problem.

This could be your problem. I read a forum post saying that the power saving feature that was introduced caused issues with Windows XP. That should have been fixed with Windows 7 but who knows. If you want to take a look, head here

My quest to have a completely unique username goes on so I probably will be changing it. I think I have a good one lined up.
