Don’t have a ton to say and mentioned this in the discord but, it’s hitting me now that I don’t think I ever truly understood just how much GB and these staff members meant to me. It’s been ~10 years of my life, never missed a podcast, watched a ton of everything else and always looked forward to it. Has always been a consistent source of comfort and entertainment.

I want to thank the entire staff, current and former, for putting themselves out there and creating something incredible throughout such wild circumstances. I will never forget it.

Thank you. I wish everybody the best of luck and am interested to see where GB goes from here.

I was actually able to get a 3080 when Best Buy dropped some last week. There’s a bot (StockDrops @BotRTX on Twitter) with a discord that I joined and signed up for alerts in. Worked pretty well, only took a couple of different drops for me to get through.

Unfortunately now though I am waiting on a new PSU so I just get to stare at the graphics card in my closet.

You will be missed! Really appreciated the voice and energy Abby brought to Giant Bomb and she created some of my favorite features on the site as well.

Good luck!!

We have a 55C7P, and while I haven’t noticed any burn-in I am and always have been super worried about it. There is some mild vertical banding which can be visible in certain situations which is a bummer. I’m also scared to watch GB through my Roku because I’m worried about the stream layouts/talking heads burning in.

It’s a shame, because this TV has ruined all other TVs for me it looks that good. Hopefully by the time we need to replace this those issues will be ironed out.

The latest episode of Clue Crew, Water's Edge Part 3, is no longer appearing in the Roku app—it was on the recently played listing, but once that got shuffled out of rotation I went to look at the Clue Crew show listing and it's not there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My wife and I bought an LG OLED C7P a couple of weeks ago from Amazon on sale and love it. Before purchasing I was aware of reported burn-in issues, but I couldn't really tell if it was the smallest percent of people who own this TV being the loudest about their issues. As a lot of the crew has this TV, and seemingly so do a lot of people on this forum, I figured this would be a pretty good place to ask.

We don't have cable, so the TV is used for streaming shows, movies and games only. I don't think you can get burn-in from letterboxed content on OLED because the black pixels are 'off', but is that something I should be concerned about? I know HUDs in games could be an issue, but have any of you experienced issues with it? I've also been hesitant to watch any GB content through my Roku because the stream set-ups are pretty 'static' frames of talking heads, and haven't gone back to Fallout: New Vegas because I'm worried about the HUD when I fall into a longer session (3-4 hours).

We've logged 107 hours into the TV, and I've been looking closely and haven't noticed anything so far after playing a decent amount God of War and Stardew Valley. I know burn-in is possible but I really don't know how worried I should actually be about it. Am I just being overly paranoid?

@godzillasbrain: You may be interested in this: https://www.amazon.com/Mad-Max-Chrome-Feature-Blu-ray/dp/B01LTHM352

- John Wick 2 discards much of what was interesting about the first movie (playing with and relying on a deep knowledge of action movie tropes) and in doing so becomes a pretty boilerplate almost boring movie with some decent sequences.

@dadmiralackbar: I ended up dropping the money on the BDI Arena 9972. Hasn’t arrived yet (also haven’t bought the tv yet...) but based on the reviews I read sounds like it’ll be perfect and easy to assemble. Thanks for the recommend!
