My Happy Hour cherry

I lost my Happy Hour cherry today, and I feel dirty and awful. 
 
Ok seriously... I've never watched a Happy Hour before... but if they have a female, is the chat always that bad??  I mean, I get that Sara Lima is attractive.  But jeezus.  No wonder there are stereotypes about gamers and nerds, people.  The previous segment with the Asian chick wasn't a whole lot better.  (Of course Sara's tube top helped really derail that chat.) 
 
But besides that... holy crap the chat is tough to keep up with sometimes.  I think maybe I'm glad of it though, because if it were easier to keep track of, I might be there too often.  And I already spend far more time than I should messing around on GiantBomb/Screened and not doing work.
 
Also:  What are the odds that the IT department at work would be able to track the streaming activity to my computer?  That's why I don't really ever stream videos.  Concerned about getting in trouble.

Please don't refer to it like that, makes it uncomfortable for everyone. 
P.S

There is nothing uncomfortable about popping cherries.

@melcene: I hope you see here that your euphemism for a hymen has turned into a conversation about mouth herpes and have learned a valuable lesson here.

I watch the video in fullscreen for the most part so the chat is not an issue. I recommend this approach.

A... tube top?

Posted by Marino

It would help if our mute/ban controls worked more reliably. I try to mute people whenever I see lewd comments, if I can catch them as they scroll by.

I had four chats open. You need to mix it up girl. Giant Bomb, Screened, Tested and Comic Vine were open for business. Nice.

@melcene: Yeah the chat is a real clusterfuck when that many people are watching. Normally its pretty tame and a lot slower.
Posted by KaosAngel

On on AnimeVice and talk to the normal people there. 
 
As fucking ironic as that fucking sounds.

I was only commenting on Sara because she looked like a cheap prostitute. Seriously, she should just wear a neon sign that says "I'M DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION".

I don't see it. I think it's her style. She knows who she is.

Thats why I ether ignore the chat or use the screened chat. There was a lot of hate going on between screened users and giantbomb users when the giantbomb chat was down and they starting visiting the other chats. Seriously guys were all one big family here.

@melcene: There's a useful chat on/off toggle option which I exercise during the comic vine segments. Also, check out the other chats on tested and screened. People are less annoying over there. I think the chat tends to get more crazy on the free Happy Hour days.

Or just go on AnimeVice.

Where is the Happy Hour? There's no video archived and I can't find it on JustinTV (if they even host it there.).

@wasteguru: Ohh come on , we all know we are just playing as many screened dudes are also GB dudes (myself included)

It'll be up later, I'm sure. It was a free Happy Hour. But, there were some technical problems.

Cool. Cheers for the information.

The technical issues probably messed up the JTV archive. I imagine the Whiskey Media archive'll be up tonight or tomorrow.

Tested chat is the place to be for a Happy Hour.

Screened was pretty cool. But Comic Vine...I knew almost everyone.

Oh yeah the screened guys sure, but the some giantbomb only users I'm not so sure about.

I had to leave that chat off for most of the show, that thing was too crazy.

Posted by Sweep

We can clean up any inappropriate posts but we can't predict which people are going to act like idiots. If it's a serious problem then i'd recommend using one of the smaller chats like Screened or Tested. They tend to get much smaller crowds and are a lot easier to control.

Tell me about it. Stupid thing never works >:(

As a regular Giant Bomb member, I have gotten so sick of the memes and vulgar shit posted about Sara in the Giant Bomb chat, also the people spouting hate at Comic Vine annoys me. I stopped going to giantbomb.com/chat a LONG time ago.

Posted by Afroman269
@RiotBananas: I'm about to make the move too. I don't care for comics but people spit acid on that CV segment for no reason. I'm not sure what's so hard about looking at something else in the meantime instead of being selfish. Oh and those Sara comments really are annoying, I'm starting to question if parts of this community ever saw a female up close.

The answer is no.

@melcene: If yer going to watch the Happy Hour, I HIGHLY recommend you avoid the chat all together. 
 
@KaosAngel: HEY.  Don't smack talk Anime Vice.  It may be filled with weirdos, but we're a bunch of nice weirdos.
Posted by Afroman269
@Kyreo: I think that's what he's saying.
Posted by Aetheldod

So I didnt know that the GB chat was that rude .... I guess I never stayed on GB chat on Happy Hour enough as I must of times end up at screened or CV chats

I normally watch the happy hour on tested or Comicvine because I find the constant complaining and perverted Sarah comments during the comicvine section annoying.

Posted by damswedon

I've used the Comic Vine chat since the Big Live Live Show Live. 
The GB chat is to be frank fucking awful most of the time.

Posted by Bigheart711

I normally use Screened's chat most of the time when I see the Happy Hour. I lost my HH Cherry a long time ago & have been a slut for them ever since. :p

Stop trying to get attention by making constant "HEY GUISE LOOK AT ME I ONCE GOT LAID" posts, it just highlights how much of a virgin you are.

Ya don't bother looking at the chat and if you must go to another one. All the rude little kids hang out on giantbomb chat- it's only going to keep getting worse now that it's streamed from the main page. That's just how it is since gaming appeals to the largest audience.
 
To those asking where the JTV archive is, you wont find it. The JTV page for whiskey media (which is what the happy hour streams on which is why it doesn't have resolution changes- not sure why that's different but it is) is set to private. It doesnt allow you to look at archived streams last I checked.
 
I could be wrong, but I have never been able to do it.

@melcene: Yesterday was probably not a great impression of the chat because it was a free Happy Hour and usually those are the worst when it comes to it
