Thank you for pointing out to Dan how narrow his definition of a "badass", and a cool hero is.

I'm almost scared but mostly delighted to hear what he thinks icebergs are or what he could possibly not understand about them.

Oh no. I don't know if my heart can handle this.

I feel so out of touch when people talk about wanting to visit specific buildings and landmarks in these open world games. They're all just the same to me. Oh, and then they talk about the tone and feel of New York which again all these big cities blend together for me.

Also Spider-Man is 100x more interesting, endearing, and entertaining than Batman ever, EVER will be.

It's honestly not that exciting, though it was quite funny to hear Dan defend his description of icebergs vs glaciers by saying "well, icebergs aren't known for moving!"

"New Dan" never was, never will be.

But I'm grateful to him for: Curly Sue.

You'd think a guy who is so happy-go-lucky about the world and lives in NYC would appreciate Spidey, who is just a normal dude with powers but who helps people out.

Dan saying he wishes Spidey was more like John Matrix is just so on brand for the dude, he's become a parody of himself, and I'm glad everyone else in the room vocalized their opposition to his silly boneheadedness. Especially since in the same breath, Dan is comparing Spider-Man unfavorably to the new Bubsy game, AND not realizing that John Matrix and Spider-Man are basically the same guy because they both make jokes/puns before dispatching their enemies. Matrix just murders people instead.

Everyone is going to talk about Spider-man and Batman, but the derision around the pricing structure of the Nintendo switch online service kind of sucked. $20 for some people can go a long way so having cheaper options is nice; it's helpful to have the option to just pay $4 on a case by case basis.

Is it just me or is it weird that a lot of people have forgotten that AC2 has already been remastered?

Dan. If you're so caught up on Spider-man being Spider-man there is an accessibility setting on your TV.

It's called the mute button.

Every time Dan talks about "badasses" I recall that he was disappointed in the ending to Zero Dark Thirty because "they just shot him" and he expected the SEALs to, I guess, perform a Cool Guy Glory Kill

You guys should totally do a Film and 40s for Mandy. It's literally the craziest thing Cage has been in this millennium and its available on VOD now.

If it's not video game takes and specific video game knowledge, Dan knows nothing. :P

I used to think it was a shtick....

Overall I do enjoy Dan as I feel he provides a good contrast to most of the other members of Giant Bomb and his ignorance to things that most people would find as common knowledge can be hilarious to listen to, but sometimes his views are so narrow minded and like that of a 13 year old child that it really tends to irritate me.

I can totally understand Spider-Man's quippiness being irritating, but to say the character isn't badass or cool because he's not a generic, big, grizzled, muscly dude drives me nuts. I was glad to hear him get called out on it.

Dan's dislike of the fundamental characteristics of Spider-Man helps explain why he was so quick to dismiss Homecoming. Makes sense the only heroes he likes are grim-dark Batman and The Punisher.

Spider-Man jokes around so much as a defense mechanism. https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/12/121988/3865802-1381584_600250903364306_302931344_n.jpg

Maybe because this guy was the only thing that anyone covered in relation to that remaster.

I reeeeally liked that stealth stuff in Spider-Man and didn’t find any of it difficult so I’m not sure I see the complaints about it really

It's refreshing to finally hear someone with guts to speak the truth on Spiderman. Thanos did the world a favor.

I see based on these comments that New Dan is the same as he ever was. Can't wait to listen!

@dtk79: I have to imagine Dans thinking on what icebergs are known for looks like this:

1. Sinking the Titanic

2. Having more iceberg below water than above it.

3. Sinking the Titanic

4. Being very cold.

5. Not for moving.

How someone that has consumed that much professional wrestling can have a problem with a character being mouthy is beyond me. Great show all, thanks.

Start at the 33 minute mark, and you will also get the context of why it was brought up.

Dan's opinion on Spider-Man is silly, but honestly, I don't see the problem with adding a wordiness slider. Its not changing the character for anyone who doesn't want it changed, and giving players more options is always good. Sliders are a good thing.

You're missing out on the best Podcast in the multi-verse, but as far as the iceberg thing goes ehh as has been said below it's nothing too special. Dan says that icebergs are known for not moving and then they google that they move and thats about it - then after that comes a long debate about what glacial pace is actually referring to but the Dan bits are pretty tame as far as "what in the world.." Dan stories tend to go.

I have longed for a pro wrestling/movie talk slider

Personally I skipped all the circuitry and radio tower puzzles after the first ten or so. It's not exactly riveting stuff.

The mention of Tom Nook always reminds me of Starbomb's Book of Nook.

It';s funny because the stuff that makes Batman interesting has fuck-all to do with the stuff Dan knows or cares about.

Whilst ignoring any actual complexity of the characters. He just likes that they beat/kill guys.

Is Spider-Man still a corn-ball at 23 in the comics? When does he grow up?

Also Sam Neill turned 71 literally today, his birthday is 9/14/1947

@raynorshine: He's around 28~29 in the comics right now and is still a cornball. He had certainly grown up a bit in the 90s and early 00s, but then Slott really regressed him during his run. I guess selling your marriage to the devil will do that.

@hiimzev: I would call him open minded ignorant. He seems to notice when he doesn't know shit and accepts it, and that makes him likeable again :)
