We have created a society where hurting other people is considered comedy.... it's as simple as that folks.

Do these types of threads get locked? Or is stuff like this just "censored" by the staff for videos and stuff?

Gamer is a word for people that don't identify as nerds. This is just teenager shit.

With the team so spread out I'm not sure that this is even possible.

Also nobody knows how talented Jason is.

The music thing just made me realize that Dan must just love trolling the internet.

Dan is Patrick's Arch-demon of internet behavior. .

Finally got round to listening to the last 3rd of last weeks bombcast and I never heard such awkward bullshit here at Giantbomb before, John Drake should issue an official apology, and I am disapointed at Brad for getting on board. I usually try to refrain from being negative here but if there was a joke it was lost on me, I like Dan for the way he is, thats my 'subjective' opinion. Deal with it.

Also if I wanted to hear someone suck playstations ass I would watch a sony press confrence. I expect better from the bombcast.

Ok, good to get that off my chest. Carry on.

This whole situation highlights the double standard that we have created for how man and women should be treated in video game communities.

I think it's easy to dismiss this as a "boys will be boys" situation, but really it's going be a lot easier to treat women with respect when it is no longer considered socially acceptable, for dudes to be assholes to each other! Also it's not like buddies got little rowdy at the pub, this happened on the mother fucking Bombcast... which I'm also not ok with.

But really Drake is a cool guy, but this was a joke that went on too far for too long.

Whattttttttt...........talk about over-complication. How are you guys getting so worked up about friends bantering? Dan clearly doesn't give one shit and is actually friends with and knows these people.

All I'm saying is if someone did that to a women on this site... there would be a fucking shit storm!

Just because Dan wasn't offended doesn't make it ok.

PS: This quoting system sucks.

The top ten lists for 2014 are going to be nothing but indie games.

There should be a sticky thread with just Dan quotes and gifs.

If Canada doesn't the OTT service I don't give a shit. I wonder if this is some CRTC thing....

No!!! Patrick, stop inflicting so much pain upon yourself.

Dota has more in common with drug addiction than ANY kind of positive escapism.
