@oldguy: I work from home, and only part-time for a school work study, so even when I am working it's mostly spent tabbing between emails and whatever nonsense is up on GB that day. I imagine there's a lot of high schoolers and early college kids with not a whole helluva lot on their hands.
And I really wish I knew what Brad does all day at work.
Oh we all know what Brad does everyday *cough* dota *cough* and Alex just looks at porn, but what exactly does Jeff do? I mean, besides writing a four star review every few months. I'm not trying to sound mean or whiny here. I'm legitimately curious about what he does on a daily basis at work.
Well, Jeff is sort of the boss, isn't he? I also see him in the majority of Quick Looks. On top of that he hosts the podcast and basically every live show. Vinny and Drew have always been super busy as behind the scenes guys producing things and doing set up/camera work. Patrick and Alex handle most of the writing and put up the trailers and various stories.
But what does Brad do? Not trying to bash the guy at all, but it seems like he just disappears. You see him do Breaking Brads once in a great while, but for the most part he is either a quiet contributor on the podcast or a nearly silent addition on most streams. Maybe it wasn't quite so obvious when the office was filled with people back in the day, but it is starting to stand out.
Meetings, emails, conference calls (?), and everything else that comes with working in a drab office building. At least that's my guess, since I doubt people literally sat at their computers all day doing nothing except for hemming and hawing over mailbags and Quick Looks.
Seriously considering buying the physical collector's edition from Larian just because of how excellent this is. I think it really deserves to go up in my Moneyed Hall of Waste.
It's really the best game this year by miles. It's just high quality where it counts (encounter design, freedom of choice/solution, etc) and excels at making the game feel like playing it isn't a totally trivial, wasted glob of hours.
The base game is very disappointing - it's railroaded, thin on what I expect from this sort of game, and clearly designed for few of the classes. Still haven't gotten to Dragonfall but I have little faith in it, despite what others say/said about it.
Unless it loses a massive amount of steam in the next 30 or so hours, Divinity: Original Sin is easily the best game I've played in the last two years. Might & Magic X wasn't bad either, but I still haven't technically finished it despite really enjoying it (mostly due to the game performing like dogshit at launch). Wolfenstein and Age of Wonders III were pretty good too.
