Yes. Cybernator (Assault Suits Valken). That game is amazing.

Read and listen to music. Sometimes a little bit of writing.

The potato was discovered on the continent of what we now know as North America, but it took the combined knowledge of Great Britain and France centuries for it to become what it is today.

Also, hundreds of thousands of Irish men, women and children died in the process.

It is not subject to be made light of.

You mean South America.

This is one case where America just has to roll over and accept the metric system. It's the metric system or go home. Oh yeah and as @hassun mentioned it's day/month/year. The other thing is just for crazy people.

It sure is difficult to write something out in the same manner you would speak it.

Well English isn't my native language so if it isn't grammatically correct or just poorly worded that's probably why. I apologize for using this forum and supporting the site. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me.

He means most people (at least in the US) say it month/day/year, and not day/month/year. I don't know about the rest of the world, but July 3rd, 2014 rolls off the tongue much easier than 3rd of July, 2014.

At the same time, isn't your independence day called '4th of July'?

And the "it sure is difficult to write something out in the same manner you would speak it" argument rings hollow to me. Translated to English, we don't say "3rd of July, 2014" but simply "3 July 2014". It is like in the majority of European languages.

@mosaicm80: Damn near everyone is "new here" to me, I signed up a minute or so after launch...I feel old :/. I'm going to go and read some stuff about Bomb Should Have A Face to relive my wayward youth.

Hell yeah! Same here, hence why I managed to snag just my plain ass first name as my username haha

Whose history with the site is the longest you guys?!

I wouldn't work. It would be Giant BWEST and that just sounds dumb.

For some reason I'm imagining Elmer Fudd using Siri to search for porn.

I laughed way too hard at this. Thank you, duder.

Yup. Got that image stuck in my mind now.

@rvone: Are you new here? Jeff was trolling us with the question of whether BRAD AND VINNY worked for Giant Bomb back when the Wiki was just a twinkle in Dave Snider's eye. Trolling us about hires is a fucking TRADITION.

Yes, I'm new here.

You've really got to give Jeff credit for how much he's been milking this announcement.

I think it's kinda dumb. I really don't understand what the big deal is and why they wouldn't just mention who it is at the moment when things were finalized.

Honestly, I think your observation that this is kinda dumb is exactly the reason they've been doing all this. Giant Bomb does kinda dumb stuff and sometimes games, that's kinda their USP

Oh I'm onboard with dumb. I'm just not onboard with dumb.

@rvone: Probably because of a thread like this.

As in that it garners attention, thus traffic? That's a pretty cynical way to operate a website. Then again... this is Giant Bomb.

I meant he enjoys fucking with people like the ones in this thread trying to play detective.
