Drew using his survival skills on that whiskey bottle.

Jeff getting rocked by Samantha was the best. The new champion!

Really good UPF, Samantha's always a great guest. Not sure how to make it happen, but at some point we need a Kalman v. Caravella Windjammers match.

No clue how long she's in SF for or how busy she is, but I hope they manage to grab her for Danswers.

My favorite part was Drew almost getting away with that Starship Troopers reference...almost

I'd be all for Samantha being part of the giantbomb crew if or ever happened.

YES!

Samantha is awesome. I enjoyed her on the podcast a while ago too.

So glad to see love for samantha is now pretty much unanimous. Definitely a treat when they have her on!

That's what happens when moderators start deleting forum posts and making some people feel unwelcome. Everyone tends to start having the same opinion.

Yeah, it does look just a little, tinsy bit odd in the comments.

Always good when Samantha is on. She has a great rapport with GB and the gaming skills to keep up.

And high fives to any mods for keeping this place a positive environment.

samantha is fucking rad- so great to have her on!

I would love to play FFX with Jeff's Seymour voice instead of whoever the real voice actor is

Love seeing Samantha, hope you guys have her on more often.

Holy hell, how have a I never heard of Rising Zan before? That totally looks like something I would've loved as a kid. I might have to track down a copy. It still looks kind of fun, especially as a proto-DMC.

That one guy's wife was so right, Jeff clearly hates video games, I don't know what he's doing here anymore.

I'll never understand this sentiment. Hes the most vocally negative about games he dislikes but he also tends to get excited the most out of many games. He just knows not to build up expectations for games.

Holy shit, it's Samantha! Need her on the Bombcast again too. Great video.

i dont know, even during the stream it was unanimous enthusiasm in the chat (which was awesome). i didnt see any comments deleted and mods dont work THAT fast.

Great UPF!

I, too, would like to see more Samantha on the site.

I'm not saying that this content in particular was the reason, I'm just saying that the moderator's policy of banning chat about certain subjects and certain websites has bred this type of reaction. Before there would have been some sort of opposition, now people who are of a differing opinion have either been silenced or gone elsewhere.

Not really saying if that's good or not, it just seems to make sense to me. I'm not really a fan of Samantha, but considering how many people on here don't like Dan, I'm not going to make a big deal about a single UPF I have to going to skip.

You don't have to skip anything. She is just on the show and talks about things the other guys talk about and per the norm she mentions her game once. I see nothing that can cause a problem with her on the show.

Drew is so pretty, jeffs face is hilarious/terrifying in that pic

@masturbatingestbear:

That's called being jaded beyond repair.

It's almost offensive to look at videos where Jeff doesn't give a game a chance and spews hatred about them. I mean he's a good guy but a tide of cynicism and "meeeeh" towards most games gets old.

S'why we need more Vinny and Dan, people who are positive about games.

But thats actually not what being jaded is... at all. I just pointed out that out of everyone when Jeff is excited he may get the most excited out of all of them, but when hes negative he is very open with this. Again this has been the case for the past 10 years of listening to him. Nothing has changed.

@pudge: What is so bad that you have to skip the show? This UPF was no different than any other.

Samantha K automatically brings +10 coolness to any UPF she is on, this is a fact.

Posted by Daveodeth

Samantha was a cracking add to UPF, more pls.

Posted by ApolloDynamo

@pudge: That was an oddly defensive statement, but whatever you say dude :P

Posted by Lanechanger

Man, after watching Unplugged i really missed having Rorie on this episode. He does infinitely better at manning the chat, although Drew's adventures into Tim Allen were pretty great too.

I want to play Helldivers.

Yeah same here! I may have missed the reason but how come he's never on UPF's anymore? I wanna see more @rorie!

The confusion of defeat.

Posted by tenngu

Who is the guest person? Samantha something? I'm not trying to be rude, I legitimatley don't know who she is, and trying to google "samantha k" comes up with nothing. Why don't they put the guest person's name in the video info?

Posted by ELpork

Jeff's rockin them Kazuya eyebrows in the still there... well done sir.

Posted by Thello

Ahahahaha. Please, please, please play Rising Zan in its entirety.

I found Tim Allen's messageboard and all of his accompanying posts...

She was on the bombcast last year.

On the "Applein" discussion, "Apple" used to be the term for every fruit in Europe. Applesin just means "Apple from China" This is a really good map about it: http://i.imgur.com/tqdArFo.jpg

For languages that call them "Oranges" or something similar, that word has a root in "Naranja" which was the Sanskrit word for orange tree. This is because Sanskrit originated in Dravidian, an indo-european language. Latin (and by extension all romance languages like Spanish and French), English, and Sanskrit are all part of the Indo-European language family. This is because of centuries of tribal migration of Indo-European peoples/warrior tribes into places like Europe and India.

@tenngu: Samantha Kalman, former UNITY dev and now works on her own game called Sentris, has been on GB a few times in various forms, also part of the PAX Royal Rumble roster.

Posted by Jack_Lafayette

Samantha needs to show up and wreck these fools more often! They get complacent.

Rising Zan: The Samurai Gunman should just be called "Dan Ryckert: The Game".

I'm a new subscriber to the site and just started watching the UPF stuff, and I don't really care about all that stuff that's been going on, but one of the first things she says is a crack on ethics in games journalism, which i think pretty much everyone can agree should be a priority. Aside from all the other BS thats going on, I don't see why both sides can't agree on that point. Giantbomb is pretty much the only game site I read and it's mostly because I thought Jeff had some ethics after the K&L thing, but its odd to see "friends of the site" bashing ethics. Other than that bit it was a great show and I hope she makes a great game.

I didn't concern myself but you posted your thoughts on a public forum that people can read and reply to. If you state something but have no reasons backing it people will ask.

No it does not effect my life but again you posted it publicly where you have to know someone will reply. You wouldnt have posted it if you didn't want people to read and reply.
