No new episode in almost 3 weeks. Did they just give up on the idea?

Looks more like a lot of vacations came due and it'll just be back when everyone is available again.

I haven't followed the series so I thought that clip of them all cheering and Mike Mahardy almost fainting was the moment they finished the game lol.

@bonelessspirit: it would have been a good note to go out on. Burgle was a good idea with a lot of production work that went into it but they really underestimated how not-fun and boring it is to play. There is no shame in cutting your losses, they do it at GB West all the time when their shows don’t work out or they just don’t feel like doing it. Bring your B Game was actually a cool idea that they axed too early so they can really let Burgle go.

Unless they announced it dead, there is usually a significant drop in content leading up to the holidays with new games being out, GOTY stuff, and vacations.

@humanity: Yeah I miss Bring Your B-Game but the discussion always devolved into what constitutes a B-Game in the first place, both between the staff and the chat so I can see why they ended it lol. Nobody seemed to come to a consensus.

@bonelessspirit: I think they should have just turned it into a running joke and used the show as a vehicle for showcasing games that the general public didn't really care for but they found enjoyable. It was already kind of heading in that direction, but they didn't have the flow down yet and were bringing games even the "driver" wasn't all that interested in playing.

Anyway, there was some sort of promise there. I know there are folks that really like Burgle, but me personally, I find myself always switching to another tab within 10 minutes of the show and doing something on the side because what they are doing doesn't have the same sort of tension or fun that Mario Sunshine had. I mean thats just me of course, I dunno how the general public feels I see both comments of love and dislike.

Abby was on vacation and then Vinny took two weeks off. No conspiracy here.

@humanity: Yeah if they really leaned into the whole bit that could have been golden. Also, the title itself was too good to just dismiss so soon.

Burgle is a ridiculous and entertaining fever dream and anybody saying otherwise is a heretic.

Burgle My Bananas without Vinny would be a death sentence for the feature.

They’re waiting for him to come back and continue to carry the feature by finding a way to prevent actual gameplay.

Fun fact: Kiki first appeared on GB on the March 2012 Heretofore Unnamed Member Podcast video.

I haven't been on the site much lately, but I was honestly hoping to read this and find that the answer was "yes". Mario Sunshine was a fun game to watch despite its flaws, Donkey Kong 64 is nowhere close.

I like it, but the craziness really threw me off sometimes. Plus I have no affinity or background to Donkey Kong Country (never had much Nintendo stuff growing up), so maybe that explains it.
