@bagronken: beef broth, butter and flour are the base ingredients really. Soy sauce is optional just to salten it and make it even darker I guess.

Yeah, no. This now looks like any other bigger gaming site or youtube gaming show. What brought me to GB in the first place was the casual couch vibe, right from the start of How to Build a Bomb.

I don't know... the 2.5D look is decent (slightly better than MightyNo9) but still not nearly where it needs to be. There are games out there which nail the perspective (+stage/art design and FOV requirements) much better. Also, the vibe feels off. I love the 90s cartoonish, edgy-cute anime art style of the NES/SNES games but this is too whimsical.

Artistically bankrupt.

This map looks boring, generic and barren as fuck. As if someone slapped together a bunch of utterly mediocre prefab assets in Unity, without any consideration for themes and style.

the hand placement on that run animation is so dumb, given the FOV, it's like the character has his fists about a foot from his face and is just gyrating them pretending to be a train

That too. It looks hilariousy bad.

Some more info on the shooting: The shooting was done with a handgun. The mall where the shooting took place was a gun-free zone. The shooter was aged 24 years and old and was not a resident. Nothing concerning this tragedy has any relevance to Florida legislation.

The shooter brought the gun down with him from his home in Baltimore. Maryland is a state with some of the tightest gun control laws, and the city of Baltimore has additional restrictions on owning guns. The gun laws in Baltimore do a poor job of curbing gun violence.

Ahh, the old "gun free zone" fallacy argument...

The US as a WHOLE does a poor job of curbing gun violence. Gun free zones do not work as intended when the whole country around them basically drowns in guns. America is sick.

Thank you for making the tragic shooting a topic on the Bombcast and also for taking a stance in favor of sensible gun laws!

@yellownumber5: Yeah, I mixed up the coasts. You probably guessed it from the content though. ;)

Couldn't be bothered to watch this more than the first couple of minutes. Nothing about this seems fun and worthwhile, neither the game nor the QL commentary. I'm still commenting just to express how bored (and somewhat frustrated) I have become with most of GB West's videogame coverage within the last year or so. There is so much interesting stuff out there that deserves highlighting and we get this? Really?

I'm hoping for a change stilll, maybe someone at GB reads it. I've fallen off of the gold membership some months ago and at this point I'm close to falling off the site completely (there still is GB East though). If not, oh well...

Man, it's too bad GBeast didn't take a look at this game!

Giant Bomb West has been dropping the ball for a while now - half-assed quick looks, Ben playing stupid for the camera, Jason screaming into his mic... yeah, definitely not why I come to the site these days. If Drew could've done this quick look, then it would've been something special.

I will just say this: I'm still hoping for a Drew/Jason-like hire some time in the future to balance out Ben. Or let Jan do more QLs!

For the first time I did not extend my gold membership when it expired a couple of months ago and content like this will not get me back on board.

I didn't notice the mouse sensitivity, but Ben's refusal to watch where he was driving stressed me out lol

Him constantly crashing into the guardrails for no reason except (deliberately?) not looking ahead just drove me nuts!

Greetings from real Dresden/Germany btw!
