@humanity: .... Ugh, you're one of those people ....

For example,

  1. "I want a JSON representation of every game in the database where the Genre is FPS"

I thought the query for that would be something like,

"http://www.giantbomb.com/api/games/?api_key=[MY KEY]&format=JSON&genre=fps"

But that returns:

{

"error": "OK",

"limit": 100,

"offset": 0,

"number_of_page_results": 100,

"number_of_total_results": 42273,

"status_code": 1,

"results": [ array of 100 game objects ]

}

None of the objects in the results array even have a "genre" property, much less does it look like it's actually filtering properly.

  • How do I filter by genre, what would the query look like?

While we're at it:

  • How do I filter by release date, I.E. in a range, "between 1980 and 1990"?
  • How do I filter by giantbomb rating, I.E. "above 3 stars"?
  • How do I filter by whether or not GiantBomb has any videos uploaded for that game?

So many questions, so little API documentation with answers!

Hey folks, guy-who-has-very-few-hours-to-enjoy-giantbomb-each-week here hoping somebody might be able to point me in the right direction as to when / if they talk about their equipment theft in any of the podcasts? I listened to E3 day 3 bombcast but they don't talk about it.

Do they at all?

Let me know, thanks

Wow. Listening to this after, well, the incident... it's rather unfortunate that those words came out of Jeff's mouth in that sequence just a few days before.

I bought NFS:MW yesterday and I have to say I'm disappointed on 1 aspect; the drifting.

Short version is this;

I played and beat NFS: Hot Pursuit last year and loved it for the drifting. Smooth, arcade-y, SUPER-controllable drifts... by the end of that game I was drifting corners so tightly and beautifully it was like I was a trained Gymkhana driver.

I played the death out of it until I got bored and anxiously awaited this game NFS: Most Wanted. I expected to jump in and have the drifting identical to NFS: Hot Pursuit, but alas, it seems very different.

(PS3 Version)

The drifting feels very... weighty, and is much harder to do than it was in Hot Pursuit. As a result, I'm not having as much fun since what I loved most (and expected out of NFS:MW) was drifting like Hot Pursuit.

SO my question is, given that I'm still early in the game - are there any cars, or upgrades for cars, that make the drifting similar to Hot Pursuit?

Say, Darkfall Online?

I'm always looking for PvP-focused MMOFPS's. They're a rare breed but are the most fun I've ever had on a PC.

That being said, they need to meet a few criteria in order for it to be called "my kind of game". I'm not entirely sure where PS2 stands on these criteria, and I was hoping somebody might be able to help me out.

1. Is it an open world?

2. Is it a persistent world?

3. Is it "loot based", and do you "lose your loot" on death / "loot your enemies" if you kill them?

4. Or, is it more FPS-style? (Jump in jump out servers with player caps... essentially battlegrounds)

Anyone care to fill me in? :)

It simply pulls the file up in an in-browser streaming thing. I want to download the actual MP3 file to put it on my Android for a 3hr drive I am about to do.

So I just finished mass effect 3, and as with any other game I finish, I'm looking to find the bombcasters opinions on it... problem is I haven't been keeping up lately; does anybody know which podcast(s) they talk about ME3? Do they talk about it in multiple? If so, which ones?

Oh and the big question - do they ever discuss the ending?

I stopped working on it in February because I got busy, but I've been anxious ever since to start it back up again!

Let me know what you think!

Except: we couldn't find or think of a clever logo (or name, for that matter). So... yeah we know the logo, and possibly the name, are terrible. Don't judge.

NOTE: 3 people total were on the project.
