I went to videogames new york when I went on a trip to NYC a few years ago. That place is great. I asked about an imported game that was yet to be released and they actually knew their shit. They also had quite a few of the glass logos that are on arcade machines that were fantastic.

I'm pumped! GBeast! Where has videogamesnewyork been all my life?!

Posted by cooljammer00

They're gonna get that Dan guy to do repair videos? Will it be like Vinny's arcade machine repair video? Or will it be more like the Big Live Live Show Tested segment where they fixed a PS3?

Also, I think it's odd but also kinda cool that instead of just going to Best Buy or whatever, they went to a local video game shop to buy the consoles. And also Nintendo World, for some reason.

How to Build a Bomb! Yeah!

I fuckin' love you guys.

That office/studio looks sweet, takes me back to the old "Bomb Shelter" days. I'll have to check out that game store next time i'm in the city.

Also that Robin girl looks cute. Frak Vampire Diaries though, Being Human is the shit if you want Vampire drama.

Giantbomb East slowly turning into gamecenter cx.

If Vinny wants to move on to Ghosts 'n Goblins games after Castlevania to truly make that resemblance whole, I'm down.

I am now confident that having multiple GB locations will work out really well.

This is all the way great.

Posted by SgtSphynx

This was a great video, and I wish I had a store like Video Games NY where I lived.

Awesome, I can see this growing into something really great.

Posted by MyNiceIceLife

So excited for things to come from you two!

Posted by BoZZ0

Oh Yes ! This is be Awesome ! Can't wait To se what Alex and vinny is gona do in NY!

Posted by Yummylee

It's really fulfilling to see what was once just a recurring gag becoming legit. Really excited to see where GBE takes things, and a video series detailing how to repair consoles is a good start. Probably not something I myself would be especially interested in, but hey, at least it'd be something different.

As of now, though, I'm just really excited to see more of these Building the Beast videos!

Posted by cooljammer00

I am so happy you guys went to Video Games New York. I've been going there for as long as I've been living in the city and it's an amazing store. Support your fellow small business men!

Next you need to go to J&L in Chinatown and get the insane japanese import rip-off experience.

Is that anywhere near Elizabeth Center? Because Elizabeth Center is kinda hot garbage. I remember buying a copy of Roscoe McQueen: Firefighter Extreme for the PS1 there and the jewel case fell apart in my hands somehow. Also everything is bootleg.

Posted by Clonedzero

awesome guys. Looking forward to all the dumbshit you have planned!

Posted by FaPaThY

After this video, I feel a lot better about the move. Can't wait to see more.

Oh man those mascot guys were jerks! I'm gonna fire up Saints Row and pummel a few mascots, for justice ... mostly for justice I guess, yeah.

Awesome video, super excited to see what you guys do next.

Posted by Slag

Awwwwwwww yeah

It's on now! Let's see what you got West!

Giant BEAST, why didn't I think of that?

Posted by RedRoach

it has only now struck me that there is likely a vast majority of users on this site who have never watched how to build a bomb.

Posted by MosesWalker

Loved this video. When you guys start expanding at Giantbomb East, that guy Dan from the video game store better be at the top of your list. He let you film, knew his shit when it comes to games, and he was wearing a One Piece shirt. That guy's alright with me.

Posted by TheSouthernDandy

I still miss Vinny being on the couch and on the podcast but this move is already making for great content. Love this, can't wait to see what he and Alex come out with. Also that store was super rad.

Posted by mustachioeugene

This was great, loved the segment with Dan from VGNY

Posted by ZmillA

Robin made me realize that GB really needs a female voice or at the very least, presence.

Posted by ZedsDeadBaby

GBEast is going to only make this site better. Hype!

I so want that shirt that VGNY guy was wearing. Echoes one of the best scenes from One Piece!

Posted by me3639

Nice job guys.

Edited by nomtank

I love seeing these kinds of videos. I want to dive more into video production, but I'm a little strapped in my resources. It really helps to see how someone like Vinny can MacGyver together a video without the highest quality materials. I need to start shooting a lot more b-roll.

Edited by Newfangled

Glad that they got wardrobe nailed down before the camera started rolling—Vinny was POPPIN’ in that fitted black t-shirt. Their new stylist clearly understood that a fitted black t-shirt is *ICONIC VINNY.

Posted by Aetheldod

Well I´ll be damned ... they actually did stuff D: ... its official , east coast is the best coast even if Im 100% home grown / living on a state next to the pacific. @alex@vinny Great vid I hope we get more of those.

Edited by Ratcabbage

I was kinda bummed when Vinny said he was moving to New York but after watching this video I couldn't be more excited to see what he and Alex come up with! GIANT BEAST!

Posted by rufo

That Video Games New York place looks like the Super Potato of NYC.

Not that I don't love me some Akihabara, but considering I live many thousands of miles closer to NYC than Tokyo, this is a good thing.

Can Giant Bomb East re-imagine Insomniac with Dave Attell? Just replace Dave Attell with Vinny and I would love you forever. Thanks.

Posted by trelution

Team Vinny!

God damn that store looks incredible. Having nothing like that here in Delaware. So glad GB East has content up! It begins!

Launch the true PROJECT BEAST!

Edited by Luck702

Great vid! I love to see local game stores show off their wares.

Also, I've never been to New York before. I would surely go insane from claustrophobia in such cramped living spaces.

Posted by nick_verissimo

I never had a want for New York until this very moment

Posted by cav86

Off to a great start, can't wait to see whats next.
