    Yeah was trying to figure out how EPIC needed that 1.5% investment, but I don't know Tim Sweeny really really liked that PS5 SSD, light years beyond anything on PC he says... maybe that was $250 mill...

    I know Ben got shut down by Jeff pretty quickly, but to think at all that $70 games is going to reduce crunch is laughable at best. I also agree with Jeff this spread out thing all summer has really m...

    I've seen it brought up in a few video game outlets that people are worried that the Harry Potter game might be cancelled because of JK Rowling tweets. You can still be against supporting it Jan and ...

    One thing I hear Vinny bring up and the Alex rant, and I've seen it other places. They aren't "mixing" Mixer and Facebook, pardon the pun. Mixer is going away, I'm not sure why this part is hard to p...

    You guys can be down on them if you want, but Jeff just saved my sanity with the Win 10 store. Finally got my Halo MCC to not error out at the end of a full install by renaming a folder. I would have...

    I'm not claiming Minecraft Dungeons is great maybe not even good, if it wasn't on GamePass I'd probably feel somewhat bad about my purchase if it was more than $30. I know Jeff says he "finished" it ...

    I also don't doubt MS on their claims with HDR on old games. I was blown away by Red Dead Redemption 1 in 4k on the One X, it felt like a brand new game. They didn't offer a ton of 4k Xbox 360 games b...

    I did the get a record player and got about 10 "pieces of vinyl" (haha) and I have no regrets Vinny.

    I loved the usual boring email about "Movies" it really highlighted everyone's personality and man Vinnie is the best dad. Hahahahahhaa baldcast

    I'm sure there is somewhat of a "marketing" deal in place between Sony and Epic to show Unreal 5. Going off Tim Sweeny's twitter history the last few years, it would have been incredibly surprising i...

    Alex was somewhat correct, I think Ubisoft might have sent some mixed signals to MS as far as what they were getting to show. The creative director for AC Valhalla, in his twitter responses, flat out...

    I think Jeff and Brad are exactly right when it comes to these SSD drives on the new consoles. It's still going to be better overall as far as traditional load times, but honestly I can only really s...

    early comment of the year candidate from Jeff "I'd assume if you're are someone that likes 311 you're probably used to it by now"

    Sitting here listening to the Bombcast and hearing Ben "oh just build a PC" as Pillars of Eternity crashed on my computer for the 3rd time in the last hour. Farking thing.

    Actually agreed with Rorie on something for once with the Geoff Keighley E3 announcement take, then at the very end he ruins it all disparaging Tater Tots.

    Why do so many Podcasts get the same question from some weirdo? That rate 1-5 question was at least on Game Informer or MinnMaxx last Friday. It happens all the time. They were all bad questions also...

    @drachmalius: I still wonder about the MS involvement with it, announced in conjunction with them and the beta on Xbox One and the next one supposedly also available through Windows 10. Maybe it's som...

    What about two HDMI out ports? I definitely don't think it will be on the next Xbox since Phil has pretty much stated no interest in VR. I kind of hope the PS5 might have two HDMI out instead of this...
