It's criminal that they haven't added the Champ yet.

I'm only 24, but drinking has already lost a lot of its appeal to me. So I could give up alcohol really easily. I basically already have anyway.

If you self destruct as 9S, you see his boxer shorts too. I really think this whole "issue" is totally overblown. I also thought her outfit was thematically appropriate as she's a servant of mankind sent to earth to "clean up the mess", let's say. Or at least that was my takeaway. There are far worse examples of over-sexualization of female characters in video games than 2B or A2.

Resident Evil 6. I still remember sitting in my Music History class in college and seeing the scores for that game come in before immediately frantically cancelling the preorder. Now I don't preorder unless I'm 100% sure I want the game regardless of its quality (which is honestly the only right strategy for preordering anyway)

Hopefully this will lead to "a new start" for IGN (that one hasn't been done yet, right?)

Horizon was the victim of an early release date, having its main game release within a week or two of Zelda, and having its DLC release at the same time as Assassin’s Creed. No one on staff argued for that game, and even though it’s my personal GOTY, I’m fine with it not making their list.

Persona 5 got shafted though :P

If I had been on the staff, on top of me being that one guy defending Battlefront, I probably would've got fired backing up Alex on Fire Pro which was a really aggravating moment. I get where Jeff is coming from wanting to have rules in place to make sure the proceedings stay somewhat legitimate, but this ain't the Oscars, and even the Oscars are a joke. Of all the things this site offers, the year end awards ranks really low for me and I can just imagine how annoying it must be for the Beastcasters having to fly out there for two weeks and partake in these podcasts. It's fun having them all there for the extracurricular stuff (I really hope they did another Rock Band special) but they could just as easily do the debates remotely....and to be honest, I'd prefer coast specific ones leading to a grand finale featuring both...but that's just me as Bakalar not being involved is such a bummer. Still though, Alex was right. Alex.....was......riiiiiiiiight...

He's absolutely right. And Jeff seemed to agree he was right. The point is that the time to make that decision was before they started podcasting. I'm sure they were having internal discussions all year about whether or not early access games should be allowed during GOTY in the wake of PUBG, and that all the staff members were involved in those discussions. It seems like they all reached a consensus that this year, they would not consider early access games, and PUBG doesn't qualify as early access because it had a 2017 release date they were taking on faith. I imagine that at the end of the Day 5 podcast, when PUBG inevitably makes the list, someone will half-jokingly say "with an asterisk next to PUBG" and they'll deal with the "what-if" scenario then. If Alex or anyone else disagreed, the place and time to have that discussion was internally before the podcasts started, not 6 categories in while streaming. If they'd decided it was okay to allow Fire Pro on there, then at the very least, the Best Surprise initial list would have to be rebuilt from scratch with other early access games in the running, and that's to say nothing of the other debates which had already happened or were about to happen under the assumption that early access games were ineligible. So while I absolutely agree with Alex's assertions he made during the debate - basically every single one - I also agree with Jeff (and seemingly everyone else on staff) that it was too late to have that discussion.

No. I think all the content where they try to actively engage with their fanbase, while admirable, is their worst stuff (with the sole exception being Mario Party Party 5, which itself has some cringeworthy moments in it), and the thought of them having scheduled "hangouts" with the fandom honestly kind of weirds me out a bit. I also don't think the fans should be telling the crew what to do. Behind the scenes stuff might be cool, but that's something I would expect Premium members to have access to anyway. Also, I'm not sure exactly how much of that type of content they could actually make, both because of the amount of things they could possibly have to show and because of the amount of things they might not be allowed to show since they're working for a large company. I honestly don't know what type of content they'd have to make to justify getting another $5/month from me, and even then, segmenting their premium subscribers probably wouldn't be a good idea. I would definitely feel burned if, as a paying subscriber, I wasn't allowed to access content my money is arguably going towards.

@boozak: Jeff said on one of the Bombcasts a few weeks ago that because PUBG was slated for a 1.0 release in 2017, it was in contention. They REALLY want that game on the list it seems.
