    I think the only thing I have completely watched more than once is the P4 Endurance run.

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Would you use old.giantbomb.com if available?. on the General Discussion board

    I agree that I think functionality has taken a backseat to aesthetics, but I also know that every time something is different I won't like it as much at first, so hopefully it is just refined over ti...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Do you rush or feel pressured to finish games before the GotY podcasts?. on the General Discussion board

    Nah, I just don't care enough anymore. I need 3 more hours in a day to be able to keep up with games, otherwise I just gotta be cool with playing what I can get to.

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Should I buy the game if I'm not playing Pokemon Go ?. on the Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!/Eevee! board

    On the podcast this morning Jan made it seem like a great game in it's own right. He mentioned that it's basically Pokemon Yellow? That sounds exciting to me.

    I didn't have a large collection of SNES games as a kid so I remember playing a lot of Mario is Missing, which is very odd probably.

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic My hopeless desire to have my email read on the bombcast.. on the Bombcast board

    I've written three emails to the Bombcast over the 10 years I've been listening, never been read. Maybe I'm wrong (and my emails suck) but I assume they get sent so many emails that the chances are l...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Is there a turn of phrase used these days that rubs you the wrong way?. on the Off-Topic board

    I'm with most people on here that roll my eyes at "twitter speak". "Big dick energy" "big mood" "spicy take" etc. I roll my eyes because everybody trying to copy each others unnatural phrases immedia...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Do you like the re-design of the site?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm sure it comes from it being new, but...I find I'm having to make more clicks to get what I want, not less. I liked having a snapshot of the forums at the bottom of the main page, and for latest v...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Trouble at Vice, hope Austin and co are ok!. on the General Discussion board

    I don't have time to play the video games I want to. I really don't have time to absorb GB content; I listen to every single podcast they put out and absorb hours of audio while driving/at the gym. I ...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Sony not attending E3 next year. on the E3 2019 board

    Too bad. It's not as fun having multiple events constantly throughout the year...I know it's partly just what I'm used to but I enjoy looking forward to "the show" each year.

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Tetris Effect looks stunning (Gameplay).. on the Tetris Effect board

    This will seem weird but I actual prefer puzzle games that require high levels of concentration to be more barebones. For some reason any puzzler that has cool effects like this that I appreciate fro...

  • Brendan posted a message on the post Red Dead Redemption 2 Review.

    @rerunaway: The problem with this take is that you are such a slave to a shitty system that you don't even know it. Your reality didn't have to be what it was any more than workers at Rockstar's were....

  • Brendan posted a message on the post We're Sorry: Ten Years of The Giant Bombcast.

    I wonder how much it's nostalgia vs how difficult it's been for the Bombcast to reach the levels of quality it was at since before Ryan passed, that is the reason for so many of these clips being in t...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic How often do you think about gun violence in gaming?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm Canadian so I absorb (and therefore think) about gun violence in real life quite a bit but for games that are largely military/sci-fi military settings the two are never connected in my head. The...
