That's a good assortment of Korean snacks in the last box. My favorite are the maple syrup puffs. The C64 stuff was nice. Was that a PC engine / turbo graphics controller on the desk at the beginning of the video?

I always love a good mailbag. Exciting. A lot like Christmas.

Also, Brad looks like a badass still, and Dan should really stick with that bearded space nazi look. Classic.

MUCHO AZUCAR!

I totally sent those Ice-T-movies. It's a shame Jeff didn't read any of the synopsis from the back covers to uncover the remarkable amount of horrible one-time rap artists doing bit parts in those movies.

Man, I wish someone would send me a 4GB 770. That's still a great card.

I like Dan's new future leather-man look

Hello to all you wonderful Kite Co. people. You're all crazy and I love you for it. Keep doing what you do, and bringing us tales from the EVElands. That story of your people helping HERO to take out that TItan late last year was magical.

i like how even jeff is barely able to restrain himself from calling the people who send this stuff in crazy

Posted by Ascara89

Wow that was long, where do people get these things that they send in? Everything old I have I want to keep and anything else is gone.

That chocolate wine is garbage and I love it. Tastes nothing like wine, more like alcoholic Yoohoo.

Posted by HatKing

Chocolate wine is fucking repugnant. I can't wait for them to try that garbage water.

Too much stuff

Poor Dan probably just narrowly missed an anxiety attack because of the protein bars. They look axactly like in the movie. I'm considering sending them my 400 disk demodisk collection with disks from German magazines. Tey even have full games on them from the early 2000's forward.

Give Drew that 770! Better than what he has. I have a 760 3 GB right now and plenty good to run the Witcher on a mix of medium-high settings at 60 fps +.

Exactly. They had a "it's okay" attitude but it's a pretty damn good card. Like I mention above, give it to Drew. Think he said he is running a 500 series on the podcast. It's a better card than I have and mine is good to run almost all games on high settings still. Unless you're running 4K on a TV or a huge monitor or something the older graphics cards are still just fine.

I know I shouldn't care. I've gotten over it but seeing the Splatoon Amiibo 3-pack on Jeff's desk made me slightly angry that it's basically impossible to find atm.

The lack of 'joey' in this episode upsets me greatly

Posted by LarryDavis

Fans continue to send them literal garbage. Is this a scheme to force another cleanup stream in like 2 years?

Giant Bomb will end with the great Mailbag avalanche of 2017.

Posted by DF-1

they have a gtx 670 in their main gaming pc, they call the 770 old..... its one series behind the very latest (there was no 800 series for desktops).

Posted by Deusx

Man, Brad looks great with that haircut. He should stick to it.

Yeah, The 770 isn't old and it's a fantastic card. I don't a reason to go higher when I can play everything maxed out.

What a cool fucking dude.

Is the Giant Bomb: Mothership moving offices/floors?

"... Does this computer not have a disc drive in it?"

I love you Dan.

Posted by Art_Vandelay

Jesus, he found a gtx 770 when spring cleaning and gave it away? I bought one last year for a lot of money (granted it was bad timing). Its always sad to see expensive hardware getting old.

Posted by ketchupman36

Dan please wear those glasses during the next Mario Party

Posted by Applegong

Wow Jeffery looks more like Timothy Spall

Posted by Homelessbird

I LOVED that Magic the Gathering: Arena novel as a kid. It's a pretty good direct translation of stuff in the game into a coherent fantasy world. Also a lot of schtupping. Man, I should see if I can find that thing...

Posted by sravankb

So can we get Dan to wear those future shades at all times?

Posted by MissAshley

Fuck yeah, Chocovine! Make sure it's chilled!

Posted by bburch87

Why did they need to cut away? Something about taxes?

Perfect timing as @drewbert wanted a new video card for Witching and the 770 will handle that game pretty well for the price of free.

Posted by NeoZeon

Seeing that Microprose logo on the back of all those C64 sims took me way, way back down memory lane. Good times. Great mailbag as always duders. Keep that "garbage" coming!

Posted by Art_Vandelay

@humanity: Yeah. I'm playing Witcher 3 with my gtx 770 4 gb. Have to lock it to 30fps though. I wish I had something with a little more power now. But the card is pretty good overall, especially for free :3

can't wait til they excitedly try that chocolate wine and find out how repulsive it is

Posted by 1momosauky

Jeff lost a lot of weight, good for him.

@art_vandelay: I'm playing on a 7870 and I'm surprised at how well it works with mostly everything on high. I thought I wouldn't be able to run it at all but I'm getting 45+ FPS consistently out in the world it's a little nuts.

Posted by Hippie_Genocide

TIL Christopher Lambert is French.

Koreans are big into hand gestures.

Posted by Art_Vandelay

@humanity: Wow, thats crazy. I have most settings on high, some on ultra and I get almost the same performance as you. Would've never guessed that the 7870 is still such a viable card.

Posted by Humanity

@art_vandelay: I'm as surprised as you are considering radeons typically perform worse in most games and I usually have nothing but problems with this card - but likewise I kinda got it at a super steep discount through my brother who works at ASUS and you can't beat a good deal.

I'm seriously debating on getting a 970 though but I hardly ever game on PC these days so it seems like a waste of money.

Posted by Art_Vandelay

@humanity: Same here. It's more the thrill of unboxing and testing nice new hardware, with the occasional gaming spree. I think the smart thing would be to wait until the 980ti comes out in july, or until the new architecture will be released next year, since all cards will probably drop in price then. At least it is easier to justify spending money on something you don't need when its cheaper ;)

Oh there's Jason and his Naruto ninja gestures again

Posted by Bollard

Give Drew that 770, he said he needed a new card to play the Witcher on the Bombcast.,

Posted by LikeaSsur

Every time I see Brad, I expect him to break out in song and dance about a car he's been working on in his garage.
