Jar 'em up.

There's always time for jars!

Posted by Larsa

Wow, I heard Jeff talk about recording this video on the bombcast like 2 minutes ago. Good timing.

Drinking from jars like a pimp!

jars revenge?

Edited by Crunchman

I sat on a jar once and it broke.

It was my jar of hearts.

This is going to spin out into a " Pic of me and my Jug thread".

Hopefully.

I don't care, there is always time for jars.

I'd love to see Jeff on that show "Hoarders". "No you can't throw out my 2003 recovery disk! What if the old ass CPU in my closet that I haven't tuned on in years needs to be recovered!?" *counsellor tosses disk in trash* TEARS.

My favorite GB video series! Keep it up Jeff.

There's a Dino Rang in my Jar Time!

Listening to Jar Time, measuring snail larvae. I guess it's going to be an okay afternoon.

More like DINO-DANNGGGGG.

There will be jars...and Jeff is ready to dump on DLC haters.

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Oh cool! What a nice way to spend my time before I have to go to work.

Posted by Dragonblade

Yep. Still my favorite pieces of 'premium' content.

Insightful, informative, and a great perspective of reviewing practices and opinions in our gaming hobby.

Thanks, Jeff.

Posted by ItalianStallion

Jeff, don't stop doing these. The world needs more jars, damn it!

Posted by jessej07

Jar time is the best!

Posted by SquirrelGOD

THANK YOU, Jeff. You perfectly expressed how I feel about DLC and the idiots that won't stop whining about it.

Hockey jerseys are better than baseball jerseys

I generally won't buy DLC on Day One, I'll wait to see what reviews and people say about it and then my decision. Having said that, I have no real issue paying $5-$10 for another 2-4 or more hours of a great game, but I do like it better than it's a full expansion, like Shivering Isles, which was awesome and added a lot to Oblivion for me personally.

I do wish the concept pages had some scarcity requirement (i.e. if the concept applies to more than X games it is disqualified). The connection-between-games idea is really cool but totally useless right now.

More people should subscribe because this is some of the best content ever created on the site.

jeff hit the nail on the head with that DLc discussion with regards to value of products.

Posted by Kirklebum

I enjoy when Jeff talks about the journalistic process of reviewing games. I'm a sports reporter at a newspaper and often have discussions with parents and fans about why I do things a certain way. Embargoes are a weird thing which I don't usually run into but every type of journalist has a few strange hoops they have to jump through to continue to do their jobs properly.

Reviews are a strange beast but good journalists, as I consider Jeff to be, are able to maintain their strict code of ethics while working within a complex ecosystem consisting of the media, audience and the subjects they write about. The Jarcast is one of my favorite subscriber features because I like hearing from people in different fields of journalism about the idiosyncrasies of their job.

Thanks Jeff, keep up the good work.

In relation to game of the year and top 10s. I'd love to hear Dave, Drew and Sean's top 10. <3

Posted by SWD

Get the interns to do a group top 10!

Time to dig deeper into Jeff Gerstmann.

Really don't agree with the ondisk DLC stuff.

I really think that if it's on the disk then you paid for it when you bought the game. Day one paid DLC is fine as it's extra content but if it was done before the disks were even pressed they should include it in the high price you already pay for the disk.

I usually avoid DLC unless I really really love the game as all this stuff does my head in.

I don't know how old you are and what your history is but those people who are "whining" about DLC are probably people who still know what an expansion is. DLC is good and fine if done right, I bought a bunch for different games myself, but there is something to be said for good, old school expansion packs.

And I really really really hate it if people call everyone that has an opinion about some topic whiners if that opinion is even slightly negative.

What a great day. Jar video (sounds dirty) and finally picked up Skyrim for the PC.

GREAT. DAY.

Posted by pickassoreborn

Jeff's webcam Q&A sessions are fast becoming a favourite thing on this site. Great stuff :)

Posted by rjayb89

SEGA people, huh. Makes sense.

Posted by periahdark

I completely agree with your view on scores. That's why I really like the Whiskey Media scoring system, 5 stars, no halves. Makes even a 3 star game still a decent game in this age where a review of 5 in a decimal scale of 10 is considered terrible.

Posted by Batmeng

Can't wait for the next console generation.

Can't wait for The Last Guardian.

Posted by prestonhedges

I think this is the eightieth time Jeff's tried to explain what review scores are supposed to mean, and methinks he doth protest too much. If so many people think review scores are important, if you have to explain the true definition to them over and over again, the problem probably isn't them. Consensus is king, bro.

Also you're pandering to people who are willing to spend sixty dollars on a product based on solely on a star rating. These are people who shouldn't be allowed to handle money in the first place. Just don't have star ratings at all.

Those "good, old school expansion packs" don't exist anymore. Embrace DLC because it's not going anywhere.

listening to Jeff talk about the "PC master race" and Sega fans is the best

Posted by joshth

@Milkman: that's simply not true. There are games that still have expansion packs today. Granted there aren't many.

Obviously, there's some. But the vast majority of PC games don't get expansion packs anymore.

Deffineatly my favorite segment on giant bomb as of late. Very interesting and informative. Always awesome to hear Jeff's opinion.

I think there is a silent majority that understands it and likes the way it is now, it's a weird thing to even argue about in the first place, everybody who does seems to have some kind of fanboy type of agenda.
