In the past week there has been a lot of content, with Giantbomb west,giantbomb east and Giantbomb midwest churning out content. I am now having a really hard time running through all this content, there is soo much! But its a great problem to have.

Awesome job staff, really appreciate having new content always ready to watch.

It's been nice having Vinny back in more content again. His presence has been missed as of late.

If the last week is the norm, then everyone that bitched should be happy. There was a shit ton of quick looks, averaging at 40-60 minutes, along with all the other usual content.

The only thing I can think of now that would get me to definitely re subscribe is more premium content. I miss unprofessional fridays and power bombcast, but if there's another weekly premium show, I will do a year subscription.

The past few weeks I had to ration which videos I would watch before bed because I didn't want to run out of GB videos to watch but I can see now that won't be a problem anymore.

If you're talking about the thread I think you're talking about, then yeah the main issue was with premium content not overall content. There definitely needs to be another weekly show, and I think the best thing is a lets play type thing. I think it's time @jeff did his own series similar to breaking brad, load our last souls, spelunkin with scoops, etc.

What I'm most exited about is the weird, new things appearing, like Danny teaching Drew FIFA, or Vinny's bot colony stream that was independent of the Quick Look. That's what I'm glad to see more of.

Yeah, it's been pretty awesome

yet in a week or two when there's only a couple videos going up for an extended period of time there'll be at least a few people proclaiming the site's on another downturn.

I'm talking about in general over the past year, not specifically premium or anything. And it was true, we would get maybe 2 quick looks and then unpro fridays as far as video content. But from the looks of things, that's not how it will be anymore

It's pretty great, with the Tour de France Quick Look and Teach me Fifa. Looking forward to more such content.

Yeah, it's been great. Especially happy that they now seem to have enough capacity to start covering more niche/weird console games like One Piece and Tour de France again. I feel that those were the first to get dropped when they were swamped.

Because of your display picture and the excitement you put into your post, I imagined the Objection theme playing in the background the whole time while reading it.

At this rate there will be complaints that there is too much content coming out and subscribers will threaten to unsubscribe because there is too much equally free content.

I'm just saying, it's crazy we're at the point where them producing the same amount of content as they used to is an amazing feat. I guess it's a bit negative, but don't get me wrong I'm happy about it

For the first time in forever I can genuinely say I can't wait for fall games season to hit. I'm more excited to watch duders play new games than I am to play them myself. MY HEART BELONGS TO GIANT BOMB.

Not gonna lie, when we got a Monday Quick Look last week I knew things were changing for the better.

I can't wait until Giant BEAST gets more situated so they can really pump more stuff out. There was so much content last week I could barely keep up.

This.

I'll never forget the first Random PC Game when Vinny and Dave just decided to play some Daggerfall or when they all played Dota 2 or those set of Pathfinder streams. It's great to have something that isn't yet another formulaic Quick Look or Unprofessional Fridays.

The QL explosion has been awesome, so thanks GB for that, but the premium content seems to be a bit slow, anyone know what plans they have coming up for it?

Yeah there's straight-up too much content for me to consume right now, but that's great. I'm happy about that. I like to have choice, rather than taking what I can get.

@slindz Nothing specific, but after Vinny and Alex get their equipment and after Dan and Jason are totally comfortable I'm sure the Premium stuff will appear.

It's been one of the strongest weeks or so in a long time, Giant Beast killing it especially.

Also this weeks bombcast with Brad was fantastic listening, that Samantha Kalma should be on again sometime, she was awesome.

The only thing I can complain about is that I don't have the time to watch everything they produce.

There's also a more diverse lineup of content now, which is great.

I was just thinking there must be a forum thread addressing this sensational amount of content. Things are looking beautiful. New things are showing up almost errday and I can't even watch all of them. I don't remember this being the case since, well, since Ryan was around, and this seems like a lot even compared to those times.

I remember there being complaints about over-long Quick Looks taking up too much of people's time, so I wouldn't put it past the Giant Bomb community to find something to bitch about in this situation.

Classic Jeff and Brad, enthusiastic Dan, comedy duo Vinny and Alex, Forum Justice Rorie, Newshound Scoops, and the UPF get-along gang have been knocking content outta the box! The steady drip has turned into a gushing flow and it feels great. I'm not complaining here, just suggesting, but I'd love to see more Encyclopedia Bombasticas and some simulator type games from Drew and Vinny. I find them so entertaining and educational, in a way.
