@limiter31: Probably on Monday. It kind of sucks but I know how busy the guys have been the last week and they don't usually do things like fix downloads on the weekend.

And that was E3.

Yep... Johnathan Blow just compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr.

That happened.

That's not entirely fair, I wouldn't say he used MLK Jr. or Einstein as a point of direct comparison - he used them as extreme cases for a point of aspiration.

Also the end of that segment with them all trying to goad her into having an opinion on Mountain Dew was great, although I don't really know anything about Zoe Quinn, what's the context of that one?

Zoe was part of that really sleazy reality TV show that they tried to make about a bunch of game developers taking part in a Game Jam. If you recall the details, the show's producer was total douchey Hollywood sleaze trying to fabricate crap to make the show "appealing", and it was so bad that the developers started to walk off the show.

I don't know any of the contractual details, but it most definitely had something to do with that.

This great passage taken from the article on the Game Jam from indistatik should explain the context. Matti is the aforementioned producer.

And everyone “got it.” It was a reality-kinda-sorta-thing. Sponsors would be there. Mountain Dew would be there. Dramatic tension was likely unavoidable on some level, and the prizes would be dumb. If anything it was just poor planning, and maybe some questionable brand integration. But no one, not a single person there, expected Matti to push the stuff so unnaturally, barring any drink that wasn’t water or Dew from being consumed while the cameras were rolling. Even the development manna that is coffee was barred from set, and if anyone wanted some, they had to leave their workstations and get it over by where I was sitting – an unlit chunk of Rodeo-side work space normally occupied by someone named Brad. Then came the demands.

Davey was forced to take off his nail polish because he couldn’t hold the can with it on. Zoe had to take off the buttons she usually wears on her jacket, but shouted down a PA who tried to make her cover her tattoos. The Arcane Kids were screamed at for not holding bottles right, while the entire group was lectured on how to properly smile like you’re enjoying the product – a product that everyone was enjoying less and less. The slow train wreck of faces flipping into scowls marked only the beginning of what would soon turn into an utter shitshow.

No download options for this one just yet?

This E3 resulted in me buying a Wii U. A an ex-Nintendo fan who bailed on the Wii, I'm back baby!

Rami is amazingly articulate. I think both the raucous atmosphere of some of the other segments and the considered, thoughtful discussion found in the Zoe-Blow-Rami-ND segment have their merits, all that really needs to be done id for the perfect balance between these two types of things to be found.

Alexa is incorrect in her description of Sauron. Sauron took the form of a man when he regained corporeal form in the third age. To quote Tolkien: "Sauron had a humanoid form at that time, large, but not gigantic (Letter 246)" He was never an actual eye, that's more of a symbol/metaphor.

To save anyone else the trouble, all the codes are taken.

I'd like to imagine that they all went to GB Dudes, and not to some screen-scraper.

Edited by fox01313

Great job on these panels everyone, very good to listen to & figuring once they get back to the office this one will be edited down without the breaks. Hope the trip to E3 & back for the GB crew went well. Plus VINNY :)

Also big cheers to the people behind the scenes of the GB crew doing all the videos.

Can anyone tell me what the model sneakers Alex wear?

Edited by AMyggen

@mrfluke: Nah, I'll stick to my opinion that stuff like that is an absolute embarrassment. Did you read the whole comment before it was removed?

My "some people..." comment might've been a bit too generalizing, but I think it's justified if you take into account a lot of the comments on the day 2 video, the chat during day 2 and day 3 and comments like this one. I love this community, but sometimes this shit gets to me.

Need this one on YouTube, Giant Bomb streaming makes the fans on my comp go crazy.

Posted by csl316

What an awesome week of coverage. Well done, Giant Bomb.

Posted by angry_pants

Say what you want abut dungeon keeper and/or EA or what ever, but Paul is awesome and I love when he's on the show...every time.

Darn, this vid doesn't work on my phone :(

Posted by Kovski

I really liked that Ed Boon got his own segment seeing as he been cut off so many times by people who have not as laid back attitude recently. Bombcrew showing that they care about Boonie.

Posted by PLWolf

@tuftymctavish: Looks like they haven't updated the raw data file yet. Since they're all most likely off today, it probably won't get fixed until later in the week.

Edited by tronz303

Guys, I love the heartfelt honesty that you capture from these developers. Keep it up!!

Edited by Castiel

Oh fuck it, I'm just going to watch this on my computer then. I was hoping for a download version but I get it; they have all been crazy busy.

Posted by ProfessorEss

Boon's still the coolest, smoothest, baddest dude in the industry.

Posted by MatthewRoberts

Downloadable version ETA?

Edited by captainduncan

The live show was great as always, but I have to thank the engineers and web devs behind the scenes who have worked on the video player in the past few days. The video player hasn't crashed all week. Great job and keep the site as slick as we've been spoiled to expect it to be!

GB: I pay you guys over $50/year. This video is 5 days old. Still no download or YouTube. What gives?!

Edited by Stackboy

Still waiting for the downloadable version. I'm guessing the breaks need to be edited first?

5 days old and you can't download it yet?! That's 68 cents you spent, just flushed down the drain! Let me know if you need me to wire you some money so you can eat this week!

Why do you need an update when you know full well why the video isn't downloadable yet? There's unpacking to do, there was a weekend in between those 5 days, one of those production guys is setting up shop on the other side of the country, and these things don't just happen because someone snaps their fingers. It's not complicated.

Posted by Metal_Mills

Why is this video 5 hours long but the audio version is 3 hours 41mins?

Presumably there are gaps in between the segments, ie dead air? I duno, I haven't seen it yet but that would be my common sense guess.

Hey, I wish it was available to download too but I know how tough it must be for the team!

Will trade 2 hours of Geoff and Zoe for 30 minutes of Vinny!

Edited by unique

To all those trolling me, $50 is a real number, and is a significant amount for some people, including myself. I love GB's content (otherwise I wouldn't be here), but one of the features I pay for specifically is a downloadable version of each video, and I shouldn't be faulted for expecting that within a reasonable timeframe, E3 or not.

Edited by TheLegendOfMart

@unique: You aren't the only one who pays for the site and $50 is a lot to me also.

E3 ended on Thursday, probably took them a while to pack everything up and stick it on the truck, then they had to wait for flights and get into cars to get home. After a stressful week they probably kicked back and enjoyed their weekend.

Not sure what happens on a Monday but historically they hardly ever put videos out on a Monday and I wouldn't be surprised if all their kit was waiting for them when they arrived at work this week so Drew would have to unpack everything and being on his own now I would imagine it takes a while to set up.

Your $50 a year probably pays one persons wages for half an hour, stop acting so entitled and just wait for Drew to sort it out.

You're getting that downloadable video one day very soon and you know full well that you're getting it. You're also smart enough to understand the logistics of what's going on and why that video -- one of hundreds that your $50 annual fee goes toward, so let's not act like you paid $50 for this video, okay? -- hasn't been prepared for you just yet. So factoring that in, combined with the fact that you can still watch this video right now in a slightly less ideal form, you sound like a spoiled child. The fact that you spend 13 cents a day on this site doesn't give you the right to wave it in the staff's face every time you feel like you're owed something. I don't care how significant that money is to you.

I'm glad Brad didn't go for the pre-E3 haircut.

Edited by kinetix

Broke my volume knob trying to hear a few of the panel guests. Worth it though.

Posted by PLWolf

@unique: I feel you. My problem is the fact that I can't even click on the video to watch it, in this format, as this site continues to be more mobile unfriendly.

Edited by Heycalvero

Thanks for the awesome work on the video side of things Vinny and Drew! Editing was hilarious as usual.

Like others, I'll wait for the download version. No need for an unfriendly discussion about that though, please stop it guys.

That seems a tad unrealistic.

Pretty sure Patrick is hammered in that last segment LOL ;)
