Jeff: "Heihachi's hands are deadlier than any of the weapons in this game." (~10:56)

Hah, clearly they had some problems with the archive file. Not only is this up very late, they've got "pleaseworkthistime" in the file name! :-D

Oh thank God, another sane person who labels videos by year-month-day, the only correct way to do it.

I have to say, both of these vlogs have been amazingly well-edited and very fun. Great job, Abby!

That new Greatsword that Jason was using (and that you can only get during this event) not only looks cool, it's actually the best Greatsword in the game stats-wise. The trick is to not awaken the fire element and instead stick in an "elementless" jewel, which gives a blanket damage buff to any weapon with no elemental attack. Pair that with its high base damage, white sharpness, and managably bad affinity (-15%... could be a lot worse), and it's got the highest damage potential of any Greatsword in the game so far as I can tell. At least one point in handicraft helps, since its native white sharpness is vanishingly small.

I hadn't played Greatsword before now (I've been sticking to Hammer, Lance, and Bow), but I made this Greatsword and an armor set to go with it this afternoon and have had a pretty darn good time with it! If you want to check it out, start doing the 5-star event quest "Every Hunter's Dream" (HR8). You'll need five "Master Craftsman's Blueprint" from that quest to forge it and then upgrade it all the way.

This was so much fun to watch. One of the best GB streams in a while. Instant classic material.

I recognized that first game from somewhere, probably an arcade in a casino at Lake Tahoe where my parents used to leave me while they went and gambled. I didn't recognize the others, but man, they're terrible in the best way possible.

This was a really good Bombcast. I loved the whole first 45-minute section about the resurgence of Japanese game industry. They talked about a lot of games that are near and dear to me. And the story from Mark at ~32-minute mark about 8-4 almost localizing Demon's Souls is priceless.

Can't wait for him to unlock Saphire Star's Guidance. Now that will be a soul crushing challenge.

Eh, it's actually easier than some of the investigations you can end up getting. I'd rather do Sapphire Star's Guidance than tempered Teostra in Elder's Recess with a 15-minute time limit and no faints allowed.

I also kinda wonder if he'll even get to HR 100. That's a whole lotta hours for a dude with a young kid and a lot of other games to play.

Ended up watching this after Giant Bomb TV started playing the 2014 PAX East Panel this morning. I didn't have time to watch the panel as I was walking out the door to work, so looked it up on the site and found this as well. Interesting stuff... and also kinda spooky considering this was after Quinn started getting harassed over her game, but about four months before Gamergate proper had happened. Anyway, it's worth watching.

One thing I did want to add, years after this thing has been posted. The last question had to do with whether the benefits of sarcasm outweigh the negatives, or vice-versa. It reminded me of John Scalzi's maxim: "The failure mode of 'clever' is 'asshole.'" Words to live by.
