Hey fellow GBers, I need your help. Remember those good old days of when Matt and Alex were working for Screened? It was basically the Giant Bomb version for movies, and it was magnificent. However, once they left, that website became incredibly dull and boring with very few reviews of new movies being posted anymore. Also, most of those movies are blockbusters, so I never get to find out about some of the lesser known movies that Alex and Matt would write about from time to time.
During the golden era of Screened, I became a lot more interested in cinema, but now I just simply can't find any other place that would be like it. I used to visit Spill from time to time, but their website has been recently shutdown. So, could anyone recommend me any websites that would be the Giant Bomb version for movies? By that I mean a place where writers aren't solely serious, like to have fun, introduce a little bit of comedy in their writing, maybe have some video features as well. If you know of any similar websites, could you please share it with me and the rest of this wonderful community?
For everyone who is talking about "what happens if the money stops coming" as a reason to stop making videos on Youtube... isn't that an argument for the Giant Bomb staff to stop making videos and get real jobs? What if their audience stops watching, stops subscribing, stops buying merchandise? Their jobs are as tenuous as any youtubers'.
Are you seriously comparing the GB staff with youtubers? First of all, GB staff has tons of contacts around the gaming industry. Second, they don't only make videos. You know that Jeff, Brad, Patrick, Alex are also writing articles pretty regularly? Not to mention all the stuff they're doing behind the scenes. Then you have a ton of website designers, people that are responsible for different aspects of video making and so on. You want to tell me that it would be hard for them to get another job if GB went bust? It's not just shooting a random video with your camera, doing minimal editing and uploading it to YouTube, it's much more. Not to mention all the live streams, event coverage, interviews and so on.
The Bombcast is enough for me really. I mean they talk for nearly 3 hours a week there, what else could you want? The other gaming podcast I listened to is Gamespy Debriefings, but it wasn't really because of game talk.
