As a dude who loves the bombcast, but doesn't and will never care about a handful of often discussed games, series and topics, I would greatly appreciate time stamps in the description of these shows.

Destiny 2, anyone?

Boy I love it when GB talks about Destiny. /s

Really, really wish GB did timestamps. I genuinely do not want to hear them talk about it.

@sodapop7: I don't think they would have stayed silent. They aren't silent now, so there you go. And when I was referring to the out rage machine, I was more referring to this community.

They explicitly said so on an old bombcast, circa 2009 or 2010. It was a remark made by either Ryan or Jeff, but I can't remember. You are free to not believe me, I don't really care. Even if you don't, it's hard to deny that the site used to be much less political. A lot of that has actually subsided too now that Patrick and Austin are running there own site that is basically just that very particular brand of politics and world view, just applied to video games.

Remember when the ethos of giant bomb and the broader community therein was intentionally and explicitly apolitical?

No, I don't, because that never happened. For GB to be explicitly apolitical, there would literally need to be a page on the website that said something like "We here at Giant Bomb pride ourselves on having politics-free, fun times conversations about video games." I really don't think there was any time earlier in the site's history where the staff deliberately stated that they were going to stay out of political discussions.

But the non-stop outrage machine is pretty fun too.

This game isn't much more than a very pretty, and very empty open world. The combat is okay but the weapons you use to fight with are *terrible*. They break...about 10 swings? Maybe more but that's what it feels like. I really don't see how people are so enthralled by what strikes me as yet another open world game just with bad systems and middling mechanics.

This game merges together the formulas of Zelda, the souls games and shadow or mordor and does each of those bits worse than the source material.
