What is Chili Day?

I'd imagine PUBG didn't happen yesterday because they just don't want to do custom games every week.

@retrometal: When Gamespot bought Giant Bomb in 2012 there was about a week of no new video content without explanation then they did a "chili day" video on the Monday.

Here's a short video from Chili Day, back when I Love Mondays was still a thing:

Thank goodness it's not another Wedding Weekend. I'd take a hundred Chili Days before another Wedding Weekend.

Vinny is on vacation so it would probably would have been harder to do a PUBG stream with both coasts so they probably just called it off. If I had to guess, their mixer/caster hardware is probably broke.

I don't even want to think about what another "chilli day" would be now.

The darkest timeline: IGN buys Giant Bomb >< :D

Jason is out, so there is no one to run the livestream.

Some of you guys have some abandonment issues. I don't think it's productive to look at any break from routine and think "This is it! Another chilli day!"

Why are people referencing chili day and the CBS sale? That was announced over pancakes.

Unless I'm completely misremembering.

Chili day was the limbo period before their announcement. They couldn't use the old Whiskey Media office stuff anymore.

I'm going with, "The recording equipment is on fire." Or, perhaps California.

I heard something about California being on fire. Hope everybody is okay.

Maybe they were splicing in that 500th episode clip show into today's podcast!

I think 'IGN has bought Giant Bomb', has a more contemporary feel about it.

Can't keep bringing up the past....

They're streaming Destiny! Giant Bomb is ruined forever!

@thisisacooltag: Aw, bummer. Hope things go well, Jason!

Hopefully the new hire comes in soon. GBWest could use an Abby/Drew type to handle these types of unforeseen issues, but also Jason could use a break. You can tell when Vinny is overworked. Not because the product is lessened, he just has less time to participate in other cool stuff. I feel like the teams do best with 2 full time video peeps, which is obviously tricky to manage and why Abby and Ben have been a great help.
