AHHHH WHATS IN THE BOX

Posted by ZGoon

What I wouldn't give to have random people send me condiments and/or treats in the mail.

Posted by Zomba13

Cymru is in fact Welsh for Wales, but its pronounced like kemri or something?? Welsh is weird.

Cum-ree. Welsh isn't weird at all.

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,

Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;

Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mad,

Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.

(Chorus)

Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.

Tra môr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,

O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

(Second stanza)

Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,

Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn, i'm golwg sydd hardd;

Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si

Ei nentydd, afonydd, i mi.

(Chorus)

(Third stanza)

Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwlad tan ei droed,

Mae hen iaith y Cymry mor fyw ag erioed,

Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad,

Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.

See? Nothing at all like something used to summon Cthulhu.

Even though I love the original C64 Ghostbusters, the Master System version is my favourite, despite the music being GOD-FUCKING-AWFUL.

It weirds me out no end hearing Jeff pronounce Cymru (Wales) as Cwmbran (valley of the crows) my home town. To Brad's question most of those crisps/chips are the cheaper end of the snacky offerings in the UK.

It's because of this song.

The town's big redeeming feature for the area, no charge for parking in the centre. That and it's better than being in friggin' Newport.

@funadog: The game arrives Tuesday. It makes sense that outlets would have copies by now, so I'm sure you'll see a Quick Look on Monday/Tuesday.

Mailbag!

Nobody tell Brad there are steak-flavored Ruffles.

Haha thank you. Let's just say they've earned a lifetime Premium Member in me.

I had addressed the package to "Giant Bomb" but last minute decided that was a bad choice and wrote in Jeff's name instead.

Also, apparently the leek is the Welsh National Vegetable, and Cymru (kum-ree) is Welsh for "Wales".

Did somebody just empty several children's lunchboxes into a box and send it to you?

Posted by yyZiggurat

The mystery box is what I'm most hyped for this E3.

Posted by darkest4

I liked this.

Edited by development

I don't know how this is a mystery. It's obvious the new hiree is in the box. Gonna assume he looks like this

Also, this

I can't WAIT for e3

Posted by zenmastah

DAT E3 TEASE THOUGH!!!

Posted by Benmo316

Another E3 mystery. I'm on i.... nah I give up.

Posted by dvdwalker8

That crochet bomb was great. Really nice quality. Definitely captured the likeness. Can't wait for E3 as well. Always love listening to the after hours E3 chats you guys have with friends and developers. Hope things go smoother for you this year.

Posted by cooljammer00

Maybe the guys got one of those office robots they've been talking about on Idle Thumbs.

Edited by MachoFantastico

Jeff holding a knife really makes me uneasy!

Frazzles aren't particularly pleasant.

Vinny's face at the end there though.....

The only reason Jim Ross was out of WWE was because of that story arc where he was hit by a car and they did a 6 week tournament to find the man who struck him.

Edited by Evan223

@freshbandito: GLC has a song about Cwmbran, that's probably where Jeff heard it.

EDIT: its already been pointed out, never mind.

Posted by TREVRAWR

I am all for a Giant Bomb plushie!!!

Posted by ArbitraryWater

@wrighteous86: Wow man, Jeff immediately recognized you two when he saw the pictures, which means your tale of love has even reached the men at the top. You're practically internet famous at this point!

Also, I'm expecting whatever the E3 Mystery Box is to probably involve stupid shenanigans on their nightly live-streams.

That crocheted bomb was really well done.

This might be one of the most random-ass mailbags ever.

Those pillows are pretty great.

Ugh, I don't care about what I can see... JUST WHAT I CAN'T!

Lovely crocheting by the way.

Did anybody else notice the copy of Watch_Dogs to the left of Jeff at 1:07 and 4:21 !?

With the game coming out on tuesday, I'd be more surprised if they didn't already have a copy of it.

Fun video!

Edited by Luck702

Yo Jeff, let me get that Day-Z knife. I know I've played 118 more hours of it than you have.

Sweet Chilli Llamas is my new band name

Posted by somekindarobot

@bboymaestro: it's not Jeff you'll have to battle, I hear "Dat OG Loc" Dr. Tracksuit has the flyest moves out there. I read somewhere he was supposed to star in Breakin' 2 but his "demons" kept him out of the movie. Which is why we got the craptacular that ended up coming out

Posted by bboymaestro

@somekindarobot: I'm so down for that. Dr. Tracksuit is a biter, son! His whole crew is biters! He may have moves in the ring, but on the concrete and cardboard? Get the fuck out of here, I'd smoke that fool!

To the mystery van!
