Is it just me, or has Brad become way more comfortable and hilarious on camera in recent times?

Where did all of the SMITE go?

GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF, MAN. YOU'VE BEEN IN A COMA FOR TWENTY YEARS. SMITE IS DEAD!

I wonder who that lady sitting next to Pope was. She was getting awfully snug with that Yensid Drake pillow, if you know what I'm saying.

Man you guys are doing such a good job with these! Thanks!

@kkjs: Bad questions? Ouch... I think my bat tech question went over pretty well!

Posted by BaneFireLord

The questions part of the panel is always so cringe-worthy.

i hope they screen questions next time. jeff doesn't just read from the top of the inbox when he's doing e-mails on the bombcast.

Yeah, but at least no one asked about an endurance run this time.

Thanks! I wish it still had the laugh track though.

Holy shit. That opening is fantastic. Anyone have any way to get just that part?

Okay, that was another simply amazing panel. A lot of surprises, too. (People like Vinny, surprise!)

Dave Lang was also great, as always, and that fucking donkey, oh man.

Posted by fetchfox

Man why did I watch the stream archive, this is the (insanely) better produced version... Ah well, guess I gotta watch it again!

Posted by Sergotron

Both intro and ending were amazing. Best bookend ever.

Edited by Shergaming

Saw this in person and it was such a fun experience. Thanks for all the laughs!

Anyone else really impressed at Jeff's hosting skills? I feel like he really stepped it up this time.

Is the Royal Rumble panel archived anywhere?

@banefirelord: I believe they mentioned on this week's podcast that it is arc hived somewhere in the pax east footage on Twitch.

You do god's work.

So fun! I so wished they were going to do PAXChicago

I touched the donkey, guys. I also touched everybody that touched the donkey.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the reaction to the body pillow. I trusted the crew would do the rest and they absolutely nailed it.

It also says a lot that a one-of-a-kind John Drake body pillow presented to Vinny was just another segment in this crazy thing. This was genuinely a stacked panel and I couldn't be happier.

Posted by maskedaprentice

That ending was glorious. I wish I hadn't listened to Bombin in the AM before watching this. It would've blown my mind even more.

Side note: I hope that they weren't joking about hiring soon...but they were.

SORRY FOR BEING A COMBO BREAKER!!!!

Posted by GermanBomber

I stayed up all night to watch the live stream and I'm glad I did...I expected nothing but MADNESS...and Giant Bomb delivered. Well done, duders.

Posted by Mistzero

I loved the logo at the end, just like a wrestling episode.

Edited by beard_of_zeus

Excited to get to watch this! It's been kinda busy lately for me, haven't watched much GB content in a few days.

Here it is on Youtube on the Harmonix channel. Enjoy!

Seeing that thing get piledrived onto the table validated its existence.

I preferred the stream camera angle, lol.

So much violence ass violence

Posted by TehChich

Is...is there really subliminal messaging for SMITE? I can't quite remember them mentioning it but for some reason it was on my mind through this whole thing @ _@

That was one of the first things that I noticed while watching this, that he's way more comfortable talking in front of a loud crowd. I remember every year he always had to either drink.. well, maybe this year he's just drinking more, but drink enough to get in the zone and even then he would be a bit shy. I felt a bit brad though that bad got kind of picked on between the least picked pin and the fat jokes, but he seemed to have handled it all like a champ so good on him.

And of course, fine work from @drewbert as always, especially getting that action shot towards the end there. Giving us some behind the scenes of Jeff lying down behind the panel that entire time and a close up on Green on Navarro threats that I missed from the twitch stream.

I felt brad that bad got beat up a little though between the least picked pin and all the fat jokes on him, but he seems to handle it like a champ so good on him!

And just in general, on streams and Quick Looks. Dude's just been killing it lately. Seems ever since he called GTA V "fucking boring" on the Game of the Year podcasts, he's broken free to just say whatever and have a good time. I maintain that he enjoys games more than anyone on the site right now and it really comes through.

I'm so happy I brought Alex that beer during Giant Bomb New York. I definitely laughed.

Great Show!

Posted by MeAuntieNora

This was a great show. The surprises are numerous and hard to pick a favorite. As always it was painful to watch the Q&A at times, but the responses were perfect. To be fair the audience has been many times worse in the past, but for every half-decent question or actually funny gag there are 10 wince-worthy mumbles and awkward topics. Nothing against the askers, I'm sure I'd be nervous as hell. But that's the thing, I know I don't have anything worthwhile to ask them, especially in front of the audience with all that pressure. They've got balls that's for sure..

Enter the Giant Lang zone TM

Posted by Dezinus

Oh my god that end of show logo was the greatest. You're a treasure, @drewbert.

Posted by RoyaleWifCheese

This was amazing. I certainly hope Giant Bomb considers attending PAX South because I live in Texas. San Antonio would put me in reasonable driving distance and I have always wanted to go to one of these panels.

Posted by Daveyo520

I was really surprised no one asked about the ER. I was so proud.

Edited by ShaggE

Totally going to have to watch the Drew cut of this now, since the Twitch stream was so bad with all the banners.
