@williamhenry: That's not exactly what I meant. Also, no.

@xeirus: I expressed myself clearly, you clearly prefer to try and troll. You could read the rest of what I said on the topic. Or you can just lazily spout internet-isms. Whatever.
Just because content isn't locked behind a pay wall every week doesn't mean there is no content, stop being so dramatic.
There has been plenty of content given the fact that they are all on the road, get over it, it's only 2 weeks... Jesus-fucking-Christ.
I'm not sure where you are coming from with "pay wall" and "drama," but you seem to being trying to lure me into either some kind of argument or bullying me into your line of thinking, neither of which do I have any desire to submit to. I will admit to making the mistake of "thinking out loud" in the comment section. Guess I could thank you for reminding of what I dislike about internet communities, but I won't. I'm off to have a weekend.
@dr_mantas: Yeah, I've been a subscription based member since it was introduced. I originally paid to just support the Giant Bomb and the people that I liked. I just feel like the content is getting farther away from what I liked about Giant Bomb back then. Everyone seems so dismissive and cynical in most of the content, but I hope that new hardware might lessen that. The live streams are some of the only places where things feel less formulaic. It could be (at least in part) that my tastes are just different now. Basically, I want a site that covers game news, has interesting video content, and is generally excited to talk about video games even the bad ones. I guess I miss the old 1UP Show era of games.
@dr_mantas: I agree monotony is bad, but as they just started Unprofessional Fridays and the new Wednesday show (it doesn't even have a name yet) has there been time for monotony to set in? It doesn't really matter, just my personal feelings. I've been trying to justify the $50/yr for membership as of late and stuff like this makes it harder.
@thatpinguino: Well, like I said the bait-n-switch set me against it early on. I'm not a huge fan of RTS games. I play Starcraft sometimes, but it isn't my genre of choice (I'm more of a Civ kinda guy). As someone with limited interest in the genre, I suppose that the game did a poor job of explaining basic tactics. After a while I would just build crap loads of units and throw them at the enemy hoping for the best.
The bait and switch that is Brutal Legend really killed my enjoyment of the title. Thinking you are getting an Action/Adventure game, then getting a poorly balanced and frustrating RTS game instead is quite the shock. I played through the battle with goths that opens up the final battle, but never finished it. I was so frustrated after finishing that stupid goth fight that the dread of the last fight caused me to turn it off and not go back. Just typing this has riled up old feelings.
- Machinarium - Fun game that I finally got off of my pile-o-shame.
- Persona 4 Golden - Ate up the bulk of my game time in January.
- Kingdom Rush - Thanks to Brad.
- SimCity - "Finished" as in 50+ hours played and I've seen most of what it has to offer.
- Plants Vs. Zombies - Played this again after downloading it free from PS+ on Vita.
- Tomb Raider - Just finished this one yesterday. Really enjoyed it. Maybe not as good as Uncharted 2, but I liked it more than Uncharted 3.
That's it so far, but I'm currently playing through Bully: Scholarship Edition and XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I'm pretty far into both games, but I'll probably be co-oping through Gears Of War: Judgement this weekend. I've also got Fire Emblem: Awakening in my 3DS in case I have a 30 minute chunk to play a match. I started Ni No Kuni a while back, but I just haven't had the urge to get back into it yet. In an attempt to interject a little discipline into my hobby, I've made a list of backlogged games that I want to play/finish this year. Hopefully, I can carve out the time.
