Towards the end, when talking about relationships with developers, it got me thinking of Double Fine. A couple times recently they seemed just a bit too friendly with the staff. But it's not like GB was exactly kind to Brutal Legend, and it didn't make things wierd. So they're one of the good guys making games, it seems.

GB is also diligently lowering the overall metacritic ratings of most of their downloadable games with their 4/5 stars.

I sometimes get a very CWC vibe from these videos. I don't know why. Maybe it's because the only other person I've ever watched talk for long amounts of time in front of a computer is Chrischan.

Yep! More of what I am paying Whiskey to see! It's almost scary how informative Jeff can be alone with a camera, scary. Tho these are points I've already made in comments like this like 6 years ago.

So..

Very much appriciated! Thank You!

My account got hacked this monday as well. 110 charge. Xbox support was surprisingly awesome but I'm pretty much locked out of my account for 15 days + which sucks quite a bit.

Insightful and hilarious as always sir.

Didn't Jeff tell a story on the Bombcast about finally ditching his local IP because he decided he really needed the download speed? And he said they were hella cool about it? Maybe he had second thoughts...

Yeah, I said "hella." So what?

Edited by I_smell

Watch Jeff wait for a download, write a text, tell you to get your brakes checked.

For a sec I wondered if I was crazy for watching this, but yeah-- no, YEAH, I AM watching this. Compared to some actual high-production show where they take in Twitter questions like fuckin "do you have anything on Battelfield 3?" or "Tell us about batman!!!!!", compared to everything else out there this is classic Giantbomb casual-ass real-as-it-gets shit. This is talkin about videogames like you do in real life, and not pandering to forum guys.

yeah no, fuck it, I'm still watching this. Punk-ass guerilla radio shit is what this is.

Thanks for answering my question, I have to agree that cartoon porn is dumb, but for some reason I can't get enough of it. Also, you pronounced "Rance" correctly.

Man he gets me every time, after a couple of minutes i just get really interested in what hes talking about. I like how its always stuff you wonder about the video game industry but not really stuff that would be talked about in normal video coverage. As always great video Jeff you really do have a talent for speaking to an audience.

I don't know where this idea that getting into League of Legends is some kind of hellish experience came from. Matchmaking in that game only lets you play with people who are at the same skill level as you, you're never going to be playing with people that are way above your skill level.

I think when he mentioned LoL it was more in reference to people yelling at you for playing the game wrong rather than getting your ass kicked by higher level players.

Favourite part of Giantbomb. Loooove it.

Posted by President_Barackbar

@MauveForest: But that doesn't really happen either because most people at your level are as competent as you so you don't really run into a lot of people telling you you're playing wrong unless you are really bad.

What Rich Gallup thing? I don't think I'm gonna stay up to watch this tonight- fill me in!

One of these day it would be amazing if Giantbomb would do one Tokyo Game Show and go video crazy with Japan stuff. Don't know care about Tokyo Game Show stuff as 8-4 covers me there, but video of the arcades, shops and other awesome stuff could be amazing.

Oh Jeff, never change who you are. I may watch some of the end of the Tested stream as well just to see what you do. Let us know an approximate time so we can be sure to watch the magic unfold.

All the more reason why more people should play Single-Player Campaigns.

Duders make noob accounts all the time to try out different tactics/not mess up their battle record.

There's a Garou board on ebay right now for 93 shipped. :(

I am saying this once again. This is easily one of the best features GB has ever had, and Jeff is easily the most honest person I've ever come across in this business. The answer regarding relationships with developers (and the like) influencing scores and opinions was really well told, and felt like it came straight from the heart.

I would love it if Jeff kept doing these videos for as long as he feels like it.

I love chill out time with Jeff. I love that he's answering our questions. I love the crude nature of the videos being filmed with a webcam in a bedroom or wherever Jeff happens to be. I even love that he doesn't care about leaving in a minute or so of him pushing buttons on his phone. Why? Because it feels like I'm actually hanging out with him. I don't mean that to sound weird and pathetic, I simply mean it's nice to have the fourth wall broken down rather than just be talked at about games. In short, this type of content is why I'm already putting away money for next year's membership.

I couldn't agree more. I salute you.

His eyebrow was a makeup thing he did himself when on-camera as a career move to get people to recognize him, or remember his face or whatever, so he stood out.

I know people do that, but... I can't decide if this is true or not.

Jeffs biggest waste of money was that over expensive version of Madden 09.

Y AKNOW SIC'S A RELATIVE TERM

In regards to that racing game AI question: giving each other car on the track its own AI, where hundreds of calculations need to take place, would be impossible alongside the current prereq of having your racing game look state-of-the-art. There just isn't enough memory or processing power to do all of that at once. Same goes for why Football games don't exactly look great. Each of those football players does have their own unique AI, so graphics need to suffer.

Dang I love these videos. Also I kinda hate Jeff for being able to say he knows nothing about snowfall.

Posted by YOUNGLINK

I love these.

Posted by Owlright

I'm constantly impressed by how engaging Whiskey Media employees are. I generally don't care for "q&a" type videos but I love watching Jeff, Will Smith, or Matt Rorie answer questions from the communities. They're all extremely intelligent and honest people and it makes content like this awesome.

Thanks Jeff!

That is a fucking SICK phone card.  I've never seen one up on any auction site.

Posted by NathHaw

If you have wondered whether you should subscribe or not and if you're on the edge of doing it, do it. These videos of Jeff answering questions is great. He's a smart man and he's fascinating. It's worth it for most of you, I'd imagine.

This is easily becoming one of my favorite things on Giant Bomb now.

It's not. Rich actually got embarrassed by the attention it brought him from time to time.
