Praising them for this is actually pretty hilarious, it really shows how used to the opposite people have become. What is so special about this exactly? That they are decent enough to aknowledge the obvious issues the game has, and are saying what is being done to fix it in a pretty straight forward way? Wow, time to pop the champagne allright :P
Widely accepted last year to be the "neutrals" choice due to brilliant, fast paced style of football. Do have a little bit of the underdog too as they spend less other top teams such as chelsea, man city and man utd. These team also I would avoid as I would call them a bit soulless and unfortunately represent the more money buying success of football these days.(Although this summer that isn't true as we got a lot of money from selling our best player).
I'm biased - but great history and fans, currently very well run by the owners.
Would be more to chat if you needed any help or info.
Your match against Real Madrid in the CL is going to be really fun to watch. No question who I'm supporting in that one... :D
I'm a serious Barcelona fan myself (La Liga), so I would of course recommend becoming a Barca supporter first and foremost (watching Messi every week is incredible).
But if it has to be the British Premier League, I'd say go for Arsenal. Most of my friends are Arsenal supporters, so whenever I watch the Premier League I root for them. They play an attractive football that is kind of Barcelona-ish anyway (very technically oriented with passing triangles etc). But then again, most teams have adopted this style after what Barcelona achieved in the Pep Guardiola era. :p
Jeff obviously got annoyed with the reductionist point Brad made about FPS only being left-right trigger, and kept deconstructing and going after his statement longer than he would had he not been "ticked off". No big deal, people get annoyed and bickering happens. It seems Brad can sometimes be a little bombastic, or other times behave a little weird in a way that can annoy some of the guys. I remember the tea-bag episode during a recent episode of unprofessional fridays, where it seemed everyone got a little tired and annoyed of the weirdness he was doing, but Brad just kept going and almost seemed to enjoy that it became more and more awkward. :p
I disagree with most of this, I think giantbomb has a LOT of both fun and good content, I remember there was a period a couple of years ago when I would refresh the frontpage a few times per day, and there were barely any updates to speak of. There is a lot more content now, which is good.
However, I agree that some of the content can seem a bit lazy and like they don't care enough that people pay for it. The podcast is great, but I agree that they should at least try to focus it in a bit more sometime. Random ramblings can be great, but when they are not funny, uninteresting and go on for 15 minutes, at some point they should stop and think "wait, we are actually recording this for people to listen to. What are we doing here?".
I also agree about unproffesional fridays. Some of the greatest moments on GB can be seen there, but they are rare, and it's mostly very boring games and the guys being very tired at the end of the week. Here as well I think they could give some more effort. Why not bring back more known and loved games and play them again? Why not have more fun multiplayer moments (like this week?). Again, it's great that it's laid back and not supposed to be proffesional, but I'd appreciate more effort being put into it actually being more fun to watch.
Bottom line though is, I still think giantbomb is awesome, and the extra content now adays is a good thing. There is lots of stuff that can be improved, though. :)
Keep iterating on the handheld consoles and make games for them, and move the console gamemaking to other consoles. I'd love to see a full HD Zelda for the PS4 with awesome graphics made entirely by Nintendo. At least we can dream...
