I'm glad I was finally able to see what Faxanadu is. It looks weird.

This is less of an old games stream and more of a "taking your calls" stream.

I hope the staff enjoys their holiday break.

Holidays Holidays

Here's to a prosperous 2015!

Giant Bomb user questions have usually been pretty... sour, in my opinion.

This was a whole other ballgame though! Radio Dave-style quality. They were great!

And that one duder's little girl saying "Hi!" got a very audible awwwww out of me.

Edited by AMyggen

@dprotp: Sour?

Anyways, great stream and podcast. The caller stuff went way better than I had feared :)

Posted by Demonsoul

The skype calls made this video epic. Except for that one kid who almost ruined it for all of us. I'm glad Jeff didn't immediately shut it down. Jeff really kept his cool when that kid asked him that stupid question at the end......he was probably thinking in the back of his mind "the internet idiots strike again".

@amyggen: Awkward, usually--questions that don't have much depth or discussion behind them, like someone trying to be funny when that's clearly not their strong suit. The PAX panels come to mind.

Above and beyond, Jeff and Rorie. Thanks for doing something for us today!

Didn't get to catch this live but I'm super thrilled that my package got opened on stream.

Loved the taking calls part. I wonder if there is a better thingamagiger that works better. UN-MUTE!

Love rorie and jeff together

Posted by Rotnac

this thumbnail makes me want a "Story Time with Matthew Rorie" video series. Give that man some dim lighting, a fancy robe, a pipe to blow bubbles with, and a bunch of silly books!

Thanks guys! Have a great holiday

Edited by wemibelec90

Please never take calls. It's never anything but trouble.

Also, it's amazing to hear Jeff mention Charisma.com by name on a livestream.

kinda excited to see a Puyo Puyo Tetris QL!

Anyone know if it is possible to buy this bean book somewhere?

Yeah, I kinda want one too.

Thanks for taking my call on the Amiibos tonight guys! I really asked myself why I was spending $13 on a Captain Falcon figurine when I could have easily used those funds to buy two #2 combos from McDonald's instead.

Video podcast!

Ugh, user calls can be so awkward, like the ones on the SNES Party, hope these are alright.

Posted by monkeystick

I love the internet. Embrace it in all its horribleness.

If there was a way to screen the calls first, maybe.

Posted by notsonic

I can only hope it was a reference to "how big is Batista's dick".

Posted by CitizenCoffeeCake

Whoever asked that one question, you know who you are, fuck you. Glad Jeff played it cool though. Merry Christmas Jeff and Rorie and the whole Giant Bomb crew!

@citizencoffeecake: Won't get a chance to watch this til the weekend. Dumb request, can you PM a time stamp or what the hell happened?

Edited by pkmango7

Shadow of Mordor kind of horribly good, critics agree.

Apart from that grade school tier attempt at humor, that call section was alright. Although Jeff is a seasoned goddamn vet when it comes to the internet at this point, it'll take more than the lowest common denominator to phase him.

Nice preorder rant, Rorie's perspective as someone who's been on the cutting room floor is always interesting to hear. I think more people need to realize the vicious cycle they're putting themselves through with preorders instead of dumping their poor decisions on the hate bandwagon when a game turns out not to be 11/10.

Posted by JohnnyHalo666

Did anyone else catch that G-spot joke by Rorie during the first game? It was quick and perfect:

Jeff: I forgot where the spot was, I might've passed it."

Rorie: "That's what all men wonder."

I love the quick wit of these duders.

Oh and just...one more thing...

Posted by TehJedicake

That one shitty call by that moronic gal, but other than that, great stream.

Posted by thethingaboutmachines

Happy holidays everyone :D

Posted by Bocam

If the call people are freaking out about has to do with Jeff's snake, how thinskinned are you?

Posted by hollitz

I'm with Rorie. Games are always getting better. If you don't have nostalgia for old stuff, very very little of it is going to be enjoyable.

Chrono Trigger and Super Metroid are the only games that I first played years later that were still good.

@rorie HOW DARE YOU TALK SMACK ABOUT THE QUEEN CITY! CINCINNATI IS MY HOME AND THE BEST

Posted by bhlaab

I think if anyone was going to compete with Steam, it'd be Amazon

Posted by GreatMadness

@rorie... Transylvania is a real place...

Posted by ripelivejam

@bhlaab: ugh now that you say it it seems inevitable. At this point arent amazon in violation of some anti-trust laws?

It's not really a reaction of "omg im so offended" it's more of an "ughhhhhhh"

Eh, as someone who has played a lot of old games for the first time over the past few years, I disagree with both of you quite a bit.

For instance, I played through and beat, for the first time, Castlevania 1, 3, 4 & SoTN just last year and I had a ton of fun. Super Castlevania IV is now one of my favorite games of all time. No pre-existing nostalgia, just old games that still very much hold up. And I've played a lot of Metroidvania's like Outland, Guacamelee, etc. One of my favorite genres, and you could argue that they improve on the gameplay of Castlevania IV by adding all the RPG/Adventure stuff, but I never once felt like that game was "obsolete" while actually playing it.

Here's just a small example of pre-2000 stuff I played in the last five years that have become favorites of mine, despite the fact that I had zero experience with them when they were new.

  • E.V.O.: Search for Eden
  • Secret of Mana
  • Secret of Evermore
  • Chrono Trigger
  • Ninja Gaiden 1-3
  • Mega Man 1 & 2
  • Monkey Island 1-3
  • Full Throttle
  • Grim Fandango
  • Broken Sword 1 & 2
  • Baldur's Gate 1 & 2
  • Freespace 2
  • Another World
  • Thief: The Dark Project
  • Oddworld 1 & 2

I know, read the comments, was wondering what the controversy's going to be about so I watched the video, pissed myself at that part and nothing else happened so what the fuck

Posted by ThunderSlash

Sure, have Karen take all the calls in the new Big Red Phone. I mean, she is a certified Fungineer.

Posted by bboymaestro

Jeff shutting shit down like a professional warmed my heart.

Posted by Castiel

I didn't expect them to upload the video archive at all and certainly not this fast. Well I can't wait to watch this when I have some down time from all the christmas stuff.

Merry christmas everyone and especially the entire GB crew; you made 2014 a much more entertaining year and made some of the rougher times a little easier to get through. Dan and Jason are great additions to the site btw. and it's cool to see Vinny and Alex finally getting a real studio. I think 2015 is going to be an awesome year both in terms of games coming out and in terms of the future for Giant Bomb.

Love my Steelseries Quick mouse pad.

Aww yeah some Wolfenstein The New Order love. Great storytelling and characterisation for a AAA game, to be expected from former Starbreeze. My personal GOTY, one of the best FPS I've ever played since Half Life 2.

Blazko is one of my favourite FPS protagonists in a long while.

Ashley: "Just exactly how big is your dick, Jeff?"

Jeff: "It's alright."

lolwut

Thanks to Noah for the Soylent update! Cheerio dust doesn't sound great, but then after seeing that VICE documentary that was expected.

1:31:10

Thanks Dan for the Q. Great discussion about backlash for recent broken games and pre-order.

Didn't know you could pre-order Uncharted 4 right now and can't cancel it. Pre-orders are dumb.

Can't wait for...

2015: Giant Bomb Touching People

He literally said like one minute after that he was kidding.
