These puns are gonna send me into a psychotic rage

I've done that so many times with earbuds...

Vinny, I guarantee that tool exists. I also guarantee that you'll never get you mitts on one.

I think you'll be ok for one day, being that dependent on something is scary...

What, being dependent to the to the point of leaving a comment on a video?

Shut up, I've seen you commenting on shit, and you"re basically the ultimate GB defense force, so reply with something sarcastic and annoying if you want but, I'm not going to bother responding.

Bro, you already responded... too hilarious.

You know my point, and as for you "seeing me around", not sure what you're getting at, you can go to my account and view everything I have ever said. I call people out for being whiny dick holes, sorry if that bothers you. You've got plenty of time to check out my posts since there's such a lack of content today.

By the gods! A microphone lay lifeless at the foot of a monster while my GB brethren bicker like savages! When will there be peace in the land?! ALL I ASK...IS FOR PEACE!!!

Sorry, I've been watching Game of thrones recently.

GOD DAMMIT BRAD

Edited by Godlyawesomeguy

Follow the microphone.

EDIT: Also, I love how much Vinny is absolutely trying his hardest to bootleg fix that destroyed mic. For some reason, I just adore the fact that he's genuinely trying.

It was that microphone's last day before retirement, but he had it coming.

I read the headline.

I was sad this wasn't a random Quick Look 2 for Def Jam Rapstar.

I think this might be the microphone they are using:

$400 on Amazon... no wonder they are trying to do whatever it takes to repair it.

Jesus! Does it come with rainbows and unicorns inside?

Posted by natetodamax

I do that same thing while wearing my Turtle Beach headset. It's super annoying.

Posted by Wacomole

Man, I've done that exact same thing with headphones on a number of occasions.

The added effect being that with headphones you almost break your neck as your head is dragged violently down at the same time, before the headphones come crashing to the ground with a wallet-busting thud.

Posted by legendlexicon

@Lufferov: Perfect.

Posted by Deathpooky

I did the same thing yesterday with my headphone cord getting caught. Somehow the headphones stayed in my ears, but the cord ripped right out of the plug instead of the plug coming out of the computer. Never feel stupider when you have to rebuy something expensive and new that you stupidly broke.

Posted by AlpineHermit

If you are ever looking to open something that has a bit you don't have you can always try taking a lighter to the back of a bic pen until it gets soft the cram it into the thing and let it dry.. Once it's hard you can unscrew it. This has aloud me to open and rebattery many original gb games.

Posted by walterbennet

More videos like this please. Makes me miss the old place =(. So yeah, what Im basically saying is, Brad: Break more stuff and have Vinny stare at it on camera.

Posted by Hells

Looks like Brad needs a Lapel Mic with a wireless transmitter to send the audio back to the Mixer Board. Downside is the investment in rechargeable batteries.

Or get him one of these...

Posted by geekbot

I've had the same thing happen to me too, so don't sweat it Brad! :)

Vinnguyver?

NO TEARS, ONLY DREAMS.

Edited by DoctorWelch

Seems like a lot of work for a shitty mic.

Regardless, this kind of video is awesome and always appreciated.

Haha, Giant Bomb would be a lot more classy if everyone watched too much Game of Thrones

Anyway Xeirus don't you see how I could have been annoyed or offended by your first comment? I just made a quick remark about how there wasn't much content today, and just thought your comment was a little mean, and if that makes me a "whiny dick hole" then I don't know what to say.

And, as for my second comment I was simply saying that I always see you defend GB a bit over zealously.

I don't like getting into internet battles and just thought you were being a little mean, that's all.

I see nothing over zealous about anything I have "defended" GB on. I'm sure it's come off as mean, but in equal parts the things I am replying to come across as childish, or just plain ignorant.

I was flattered when you referred to me as the GB defense force though, it's going to go to my head now.

Alternatively you could just shave off your chest hair...

What!? Don't give me that look. They did it in that movie "Se7en" right?

Guys, you need to start putting Drew in front the camera more. You'll probably triple female subscriber base in two weeks...

@GenocidalKitten: It came across as snarky, it's not that huge of a deal anymore. At the time it was annoying enough to justify leaving a response.

Posted by falling_fast

poor brad. I can imagine he felt super bad about it at the time.

Posted by GenocidalKitten

@Xeirus: Snarky? No I just meant that this cool behind the scenes sort of video almost made up for the fact that they didn't have any other content today, the only reason I replied to you is because your reply was snarky and mean.

Posted by Brodehouse

Seriously, they're working for a major media corporation and they have to hum and haw over a busted microphone. How much could it possibly cost? I have stage performance mics that I was able to afford on minimum wage salary, I'm not a video producing business who can't afford video production equipment. Seriously, what the fuck is going on in there? Why does Vinny have to stare at a broken mic and try to figure out some sort of homemade repair job instead of ordering new freaking mics? At this point they seem more poor and desperate than when they were in the basement in Sausalito. When they had to worry about engorged cans of Swedish fish ready to destroy the entire office.
