    @papacheeks: Thank you for the link and the embellishment--I appreciate it. SoM has definitely got a lot going for it, I can say that. Heaven knows mainstream gaming needs this level of innovation. T...

    Very generic, mechanic-plagiarising, gore-porn. Seems like it's been designed by consortium, and the boardroom's opinions have been aggregated to the nth degree, such is the absence of any resounding ...

    @gantrathor said:This video of him playing League of Legends is pretty amazing. I find it so endearing that he reverted to his 'Command & Conquer Sneak Strategy' in DoTA, too.

    But really, it's FMO, or, at best, FoMO. Can't be doing with upper-case function words in an acronym. Personal gripe, as 'of' is not part of a multi-word proper noun here.

    Haha, when Mary starts giggling I can't help myself from laughing along. It's contagious. GB need her mixing it with the regular team more often. 'Carl Crunch'!

  • Newfangled posted a message on the post Giant Bombcast 09/23/2014.

    Dan's stories remind me of what was special (and hilarious) about the old Bombcasts. All of Jeff's (and, with respect, Ryan's) stories were played out long ago--there isn't that surprise factor with t...

    Mr Gerstmann is half of the reason we have the endlessly entertaining, irreplaceable Jeff to brighten our weeks. I am so grateful to Jeff's father for the son he raised, and am dreadfully sorry that h...

    Almost like when you meet a mysterious new character in a RPG named "???", but here, everything is, and will forever be, "???".

    Haha, this was pretty hilarious. Laughing with you, not at you, @patrickklepek. It was most amusing when you began to flap your hands about to emphasise what was likely a very meaningful insight, now ...

    Older GB users are probably thinking, "Dave would probably start roughhousing with Dan over this."

  • Newfangled posted a message on the post Quick Look: Destiny.

    I'm delighted that we're in an age where I can halfheartedly watch footage of a game I'm mildly intrigued by, feel that my curiosity has been satiated after the video finishes, and save myself a whole...

    Rogue Legacy. Sound design isn't that game's strong suit.

  • Newfangled posted a message on the post Quick Look: Velvet Sundown.

    I think it's fantastic than Dan, a new acquisition for Giant Bomb, has essentially enabled a piece of content to transcend greatness and reach the upper echelons of legend so soon after joining. What ...
