OP says he is a PC gamer. I think what's really going on is that last gen went way too long. People started moving over to PC because of the huge fidelity gains over the super old consoles. Now that "next gen" is here, it's not so much of a leap. At least that's how it went for me. Sure stuff looks better, but it's all incremental. I feel like if we all went straight from an old console to a PS4 or XBOne without ever playing or even seeing footage from PC versions of games, we would be amazed at how good everything looks.

Only thing I will missed from them being at the press conferences live was this great video that @drewbert did last year!

I just started watching some of this because you posted it and I completely forgot that the new consoles were expected to have price subsidization with a contract similar to cell phones before they came out. What ever happened to all that buzz that was going around?

All the people saying stuff like "why do you care" and "what does it matter" are being dumb. People care about the interests of the people they are interested in. It's not that hard to make that leap. It's no secret that Vinny is well liked in the GiantBomb community. Wanting to know more about a public personality you enjoy is not a new concept.

@face15: So, I'm using Photoshop. I think I understood most of what you said. However, I actually found the ubisoft logo in black but it had a white background instead of transparent. I cut the white out of the image and placed it into the banner project. I just used the magic wand to do it. Any tips for cleaning it up based on that method?

@baillie: Wow good catch. I thought I proof read... haha. I'll fix it.

Here are my entries. All I wanted to do was keep it simple and incorporate the lines of text you see. I think I succeeded my in my goal even with my limited skill set. Let me know what you think!

@tdot: You took all my feelings and put them into words for me. Alex is a cool guy and all but I mostly skip his content because I'm just not interested. Moving Vinny over to work with him does not excite me. It just makes me sad that he won't be involved in the content I enjoy any more.

This is just like when Patrick left. I loved his presence on the Bombcast and live shows. I barely keep tabs on what's going on with Patrick any more. I long for the old Whiskey Media days of yore.

Also, is it just going to be Jeff and Brad talking with a bit of Drew on the side for the Bombcast now? It was already feeling kind of slim after Patrick left.

Honestly, and this is coming from someone who was not previously that big a fan of Pat or Alex, if you haven't given their Bombin' the AM a shot, you should. It's not as funny as the Bombcast, but both guys work way better when they're not being shoehorned into a more comedic vibe. They have an unexpectedly good dynamic. Just my two cents.

Myabe I will give it a shot. Listen to some of the backlogs or something. Thanks for the input.

Currently approaching 1600 hours in Dota 2. Absolutely the most I've ever spent playing a single game. I also put around 900 hours into Guild Wars 1 when that was in full swing years ago.
