Farming, eh?

IM BETTING.... ALL THE FARMS

Edited by Asadasa5

Oh god the investor meeting is beautiful. Pie charts!

Edited by CptBedlam

Oh my god this is so awesome! The investor call was the best thing ever!

Welcome to the Butt Barn! We harvest cats!

Saturday morning cup of coffee and some virtual farm work. Country living.

Posted by JTHomeslice

I fucking love that they just google searched pie charts.

I wished Ryan was wearing a suit with that bluetooth.

oh jesus....

This is probably the most sophisticated margin-call ever. Google Image searches on your projector. Things are getting serious.

So it seems that this is indeed our Endurance Run for 2011..

Posted by Daveyo520

God damn Ryan was great. Pie charts mean business! 

Posted by SomethingClever

This look at the 'game' is far better than the game itself. This is quickly becoming some of my favorite GB content.

It's almost as if they did this on purpose. "THEY WANT AN ENDURANCE RUN, LET'S GIVE IT TO THEM! BUT IT'LL BE INTERNS AND FARMVILLE! THAT'LL TEACH 'EM!" Good thing this is actually pretty interesting in digestible chunks like this.

This series is brilliant!

and now the devious plan is revealed, get your users to play farmville

Edited by SpartanAmbrose

These videos are a true testament to the talent at Giant Bomb/Whiskey Media. They can take a game like FarmVille and make a hilarious series out of it. I fucking love you guys. Keep up the good work!

Yip. But i'd rather see another installment of WUTANG instead.

Posted by AlisterCat

Ok, so who is going to make/join the Kessler and Steve Farmville Guilds?

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

By far the best episode yet. Love the investor calls, and the beginning of Steve's turn was awesome. Matt needs to step his game up soon!

Posted by CountMacula

I am getting a serious Forrest Kaysen vibe from Kessler in that hat....

Posted by Kingloo

Opening 30 seconds this is already the best video on GiantBomb.

Posted by Brendan

"Welcome to the Butt Barn" will be the tagline for when this becomes a feature film.

Posted by Hizang

The football in Vinnys rundown was a nice touch, I also agree with others that this is one of the best produced video content released by Giant Bomb.

Posted by Silver-Streak

Long shots of serious Ryan drinking out of the cup is hilarious.

Posted by leebmx

Kessler is becoming the pussy master..................sorry.

Posted by dantey

This is awesome. I love the fake/real investor calls.

Posted by Meyers09

Fuckin A MAN

Posted by Jackhole

What just happened?! Lemon pulled that out of his ass.

Posted by kollay

Not gonna lie. Lemon's farm is far more interesting than Bodega's.

Holy shit, man!

Posted by Philzpilz

I thought it was a missed opportunity that Vinny wasn't in the background talking on his mobile, but the coffee shop thing worked great too.

This is some of my favourite video content on the entire web, let alone GB, keep it up!

Posted by ThePickle

Yes, it's official. Giant Bomb is the best video game website of all time. It's probably the best thing related to video games.

Posted by Thor_Molecules

Glorious episode. Kessler is the min-maxing supercotton god, but it seems like steve's luck is changing in the form of a jolly british pilot. THE PLOT THICKENS. 
 
Looking forward to part 5.

Posted by Master_Funk

Fuck yeah cmon steve

Posted by louiedog

I laughed out loud at the GIS for pie chart or whatever terms they used. Great!

Posted by blaakmawf

I love these features! Not only is the review and news stuff great, but original Giant Bomb content kicks ass.

Posted by Yummylee

This is getting sewious.

Posted by dr_mantas

I love how behind him is a google search for pie charts. And how he has an obvious mic cord.

Great stuff.

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

Whoever pitched this idea is a genius.

Posted by heavyplay

if i werent so lazy id start an account to help crush kessler

Posted by PatVB

The Google Image search of pie charts is amazing.

Posted by XcL

From what I understand , Money never sleeps.

Posted by SolidOcelot

These are quickly becoming my favorite thing

Posted by DrDarkStryfe

A great schism will form in the GB community when people start to take sides. Farmville will become serious business.

Edited by Quipido

Today this has changed from cassualy mocking the Farm Ville to actively promoting it... people here will sign up for it and some portion even sink money in it. I enjoy these videos, but I think you shouldn't have opened it up.

Kessler has supercotton but Steve has an airship. I just don't know which side to choose.

Posted by artofwar420

Ok, that airship was kind of awesome. I'm starting to lean on Lemon ans his long term plans.

At least they never actively asked people to help the interns. Who wants to do it may do it. I don't care at all, I just want to watch these videos.

Thoughts:

  • I love that there's just a Google image search of "pie charts" being projected in the background for the investor call.
  • Vinny ordering a coffee in the background and Ryan playing with the football were great.
  • I'm intrigued to see how opening up the social element to the GB community will go and it's probably a good thing if this series wants to show what Farmville is really like.
  • The curveball of an airship suddenly coming out of nowhere for Lemon was brilliant and spices things up with a crazy random element.
  • How did Lemon get his farm up above 12x12?  This wasn't addressed but surely is a pretty big deal.
  • No idea who's going to win :)
Posted by Linkster7

Vinny is totally selling it as an business man. Sounds eerily real.
