Man, seeing the amount of upcoming premium stuff makes not having a premium subscription look so shitty. The day they come up with a regularly scheduled free live show (that isn't just two dudes just talking to each other) is the day I resubscribe (mine was supposed to have run out a few days ago).
Jesus Christ, Giant Bomb. Are the meetings you guys go to forcing you to do nothing but premium live streams?
the day they make a free show is the day you start paying? wtf is wrong with your brain?? that'll show Giant Bomb. keep holding your money hostage...i guess?
I know what these motherfuckers are capable of, that much should be known considering I have a subscription still active for whatever reason. What passes me by is how do people, people who just happen across their content on YouTube or some person who hears of Giant Bomb on the radio first (somehow), who don't know what can happen on a live stream, which I think are their best pieces of entertainment in how unhinged and unlike the rest of their output can be, what's going to push them over the edge and not make them seem like people who just pick up a game for the first time and stumble over it, and never come back?
With how little chance that a playing-video-games live stream will be uploaded to YouTube for archive purposes, why not make another one of those chances be something from a live show? Out of the few comments I've seen on YouTube when the video player here is being busted as fuck, they're calling out these guys on being immensely inept and jaded as fuck for a feature called a "Quick Look." It is called a "Quick" look after all, so you just have to hope that these guys can pull through and pull some random guy in with something even remotely entertaining. That ArmA III Quick Look took awhile for it to be finally entertaining, but if it were anyone else who didn't know who Giant Bomb is, they would have shut it down in a heartbeat because it was immensely boring for 75% of length or so.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'll drop money for these guys soon. Ain't no rjayb89 Giant Bomb shutdown here, I love these guys. These guys are the only people who output anything worth entertaining here on the video game side, but I do worry for them. And from the other side, this site can seem pretty by-the-numbers, but I know what they're capable of.
