    Ah the Limp Bizkit Conundrum. If you aren't dunking on Limp Bizkit anymore, is it really Limp Bizkit? I wonder then if the attempt at being "in on the bit" is them actively reviving that key component...

    Pro-tip: Don't in fact go to Hawaii! The native peoples of Hawaii have long been calling for a halting of the tourist industry but it reached a breaking point after COVID. The one-way traffic of touri...

    I'm really appreciating the lessons that are becoming apparent across the arc of the show. Namely that virality is not neutral and something we should increasingly ask whether we want at all (because ...

    The YouTube channel my nephew puts on almost every time he visits is some super annoying let's play/family vlogging account. It has all the stink of desperate YouTuber scthick (shock faces! yelling ov...

  • bacongames posted a message on the post VoidBurger's Hot Takeouts: Why We Can't Escape Firewatch.

    This was 1) very good and 2) made Firewatch seem way more interesting than just a mystery that fails or succeeds to pay off. I suspect Delilah as this disembodied companion voice also heightened the e...

    The irony is that Dan's harebrained egg plane idea is not too far off from what giant wind turbines are doing today. Right now even bigger off-shore wind turbines are being developed with rotors upwar...

    The crew here are absolutely zeroing in on what it is about this that is gross on a moral level. Seeing the naked cynicism of a broken internet built to serve attention as a commodity by monolithic pl...

    I think it says a lot that people would rather stamp their feet about being paying customers or hand-wring about GB content than express concern over the treatment of workers and how busted it is to m...

    Just from this series alone we can see how much of a total crap shoot it is when things go from visible and tangible to abstract. It continues to be harrowing and fascinating.The secret best show is a...

    I think my favorite tidbit was Dan asking what all this spinning accomplishes because it's a good question. Orbits are the balance between objects pulling in toward each other and an object having an ...

    I want more non-white male talent brought up and showcased by the site and the audience not to embarrass itself in the process. Even compared its peers at other game sites, GB is sorely behind in grab...

    Going even beyond the bait and switch part, you can see the psychological manipulation in the pull-the-pin style ones because they all show the floating hand messing up the puzzle. So it's like this l...
