Been a member since the first year. Can't believe it's taken me this long to come to the premium side!
Any particular content I should watch first and immediately now that I have full access?
@jeff: Jeff, your quicklook of Yakuza 0 is one of my favorites in recent memory- is GBeast going to do a continuous playthrough for the series? Would you be playing any of it?
I'd LOVE to see you play more of that game. Your epic comeback clutch victory against that boss was legendary.
Yep, this list is a pretty good one.
If you need a place to start, just watch Vinny and Dave's Phantasmagoria playthrough. It's still probably one of the funniest things on the site (though you should also check out the GBeast Phantasmagoria 2 playthrough, which is... definitely a trip.)
The post linked by liquiddragon has floated around during membership sales and stuff like that. While that post is more of a collective look at premium offerings, I would probably point to more recent stuff. Such as...
There are other series and one off things in the land of Premium content, but I would start there. For my money, the real gold is in the series and play throughs. The current ongoing series are Blue Bombin' and the upcoming Yakuza 0 play through Alex and Dan are going to tackle. Also, Vinny and Dan just finished playing through Contra on This Is The Run, which is both a hilarious and more bit sized premium feature. However, the premium features I linked above still hold up really well and all have their own unique brand of Giant Bomb magic.
I have my personal favorites, but yours will probably be different. (I really liked the Life is Strange play through, but I also love Life is Strange, as an example) So I would take a dip in a series that sounds interesting and then tune into the live streams as they happen.
I think the very best stuff has three duders. Contradiction with Vinny Austin and Alex, that dark souls 1-second half playthrough with Rorie, Vinny and Ian. Not to say that stuff like Metal Gear Scanlon isn't great, but with three it combines the best elements of quick looks with the banter of a podcast.
Thanks me later. Well maybe not for the start of part 2...sorry
I mean, This is the Run (http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/this-is-the-run-contra-part-01/2300-11794/) is probably one of my favorite premium things already.
I joined premium about a month ago and I spent my inaugural week binge-watching the Mario Party Party series. The combination of Dan's glee and everyone else's misery made for a lot of great (and sometimes awkward) moments and it'll probably always be my favorite series. I'm slowly working through Metal Gear Scanlon and Demo Derby as well!
