I feel like they are just messing with us at this point. "Let's change it to a 6.3 next, that will really fuck them up!"

Then they'll take it down to 1/10 then bring it up to 12/10. Then just delete the whole review and replace it with a video of Justin McElroy masturbating while reading his own articles.

That's weird, I thought they already opted out a long time ago?

I laughed at the one thread where the OP declared that there would be a "war" if GB and GS continued to collaborate together. A lot of people claim that fans of this site are blinded by their loyalty to the GB crew and defend them from criticism, but it takes stalker-levels of obsession to be in such a outrage when GB does something different.

That's pretty hilarious. I wonder who was making those claims?

Dude's last two games were Ultima 9 and Tabula Rasa

ya, those were both reaaaaaaaaaally good games......

I liked Tabula Rasa a lot but it wasn't fleshed out enough at all. But yeah I put about as much trust in him as I put trust in myself not eating a pizza pie that steaming in front of my face.

It would be better if I didn't have to ditch a bunch of high settings to keep the game running. I also noticed huge frame drops at 1/4 through the game for no real reason. It still looks a lot better than the console variations but not as good as it could be.

The show was good. Carolyn and Kevin (the one with Jeff?) seemed a bit stiff. Chris Waters and Mass Effect-guy-whose-name-slips-my-mind were funny, even if the latter got a bit too info-happy. Everything involving Videogame Village was amazing.

It was rough around the edges. It needs some work. It's new live content that isn't taking away from existing QL's or other live shows. Watch it or don't, but don't ask for it to be gone, because it isn't doing any harm.

Because Flight Club and Random PC Game take Drew, Vinny, Dave and sometimes Alexis to sit around for 2+ hours, doing something that isn't their job and taking away from other jobs in the building. When those features are happening, no site support or design is happening, no video content is being filmed or compressed aside from what's happening on-screen, and no other QLs or shows can go on (effectively robbing the rest of the crew of their job).

They can't just sit down and spend that much time without first clearing it with the rest of the GB staff, because they need to make sure it isn't impacting anyone's schedule adversely. You have to understand that being on-camera and recording videos isn't Vinny's (primary) job, nor Drew's, Alexis' or Dave's. They're video crew and site techs, respectively.

Whatever. Those are just examples. If they can get the new Wednesday show to work for the majority of the community then great. If they can't get anything squared away then I'd rather they have nothing on that day. I'm not so desperate for content that I'd be happy for something that makes me want to tear my eyes out. But like I said before; if the show ends up sticking and I still don't like it then I'll just skip it all together. I'd prefer if they ditched it all together for something different, but that's just like... my opinion man.

Plus, when even China agrees that NK is not doing the right thing, you know the North is gonna back off of anything.

That or send them over the edge.

I've started playing SimCity 4 because of all this hoopla. Man even on easy the game is hard as fuck if you don't know what you're doing.

with the comments disabled to prevent it from being a discussion.

in the interests of full disclosure: she was also the victim of a sustained harassment campaign by a load of cretins. that can be interpreted as a convenient way to stifle dissent- but let's be real- she had comments on at the start, and it's not like the discourse was predominantly civil nor astute.

Not all negative comments were sexist, and she could have disabled them once the vile comments started. Instead she left them so she could point at them and say people are trying to shut her down. That garnered her more contributions to her kickstarter. She actually was the damsel in distress.

Yeah. Look at Patrick. He gets a lot of hate on comments all the time too but he doesn't go around turning off comments. He's had some pretty hurtful comments thrown his way too. If she wants to show that she is strong and independent why would she hide behind control like that? Can't she be the better person and just ignore the bad comments and start discussions with the good ones? That would ultimately kill her whole purpose in life though wouldn't it?

Quality over quantity asshole

ya, lets abandon a pretty decent idea because its not perfect the first time. great logic.

I don't like being called ungrateful for not liking a segment and that I should just shut up and be happy. I'd much rather they kept up with random ass pc game or any other show they've done before than have a show that kind of goes against what they wanted in giant bomb (which is not to cover everything but what they want to cover). Watching the stupid naruto shit and baseball was terrible to sit through. And I shouldn't be shamed because I don't like the idea of the show by people like the op. I wouldn't mind if they tried again, but if they keep it just like the last show then I don't think I'll ever get used to it and I'll probably just skip the Wednesday live shows all together.
