Hell yeah. I've really missed the cross coastal folks mingling. A couple times a year was never enough and even GOTY discussions were their own thing.

IDK Vinny at the beginning was killing me, maybe needed to stop at a menu to talk about things rather than trying to do both and just pratfalling for a while. Looks like another impressive entry.

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters is one of the greatest shows of all time. Fact.

Fungus. Pustule. Fungus. Pustule.

I might not agree with greatest, but this slander is fully monstrous.

Lion King is bullshit. Scientifically, Scar would have been king as lionesses have an instinctual preference for dark hair in their mates over lighter hair. Whereas Aladdin, which is set in China and about Chinese people, is about as historically accurate as can be imagined.

The "salt is not a rock" declaration, and subsequent justification for it, is the most headache-inducing scientific statement that has ever come out of Giant Bomb, and it wasn't from Dan.

(Yes, there's a very technical distinction between rocks and minerals where the former are considered disorganized aggregates of the latter (+ other detritus) - but that distinction was fifty miles from whatever was going on in that explanation.)

I did like Level 2 Dad Vinny forestalling Alex and letting Dan walk himself through what pasta was though. Dan has lived a largely incurious life. Encouraging him rather than berating him will ultimately be better if you actually want him to learn. And this from someone that is often outraged by Old Dan.

This game is pretty cool so far. Its less Souls-y than I was expecting though, and its much more Diablo and Left 4 Dead.

For people who never liked dark souls originally and didnt "get it" and mostly thought it was hard, clunky, boring, and had limited progression or incentive to play along with not telling you enought about what to do....im surprised giantbomb now years later likes dark souls like games so much. Heck even other sites originally hated dark souls now its the bees nees. I think death stranding will be the next genra reviewers dont "get" then years later its hailed as the game ever game is.

IDK, Gamespot had Demon's Souls as their GOTY in 2009. Would actually be interesting if that would have changed if the Bombcrew were still onboard. Still, Vinny at least liked it. By the time of Dark Souls I think Vinny was a big fan and had probably talked two other Bombcrew into being neutral.

@wardcleaver: California Bay Area definitely has an undercurrent of cash only.

Not to be rude to guests, but competitive smash is always 1v1. It's been that way for idk...a decade. Also, I'm kinda tired of the smash isn't a fighting game thing. It has footsies, zoning, guard, guard that can be broken (stun), frame data that matters, etc. It's a fighting game.

Everyone can have an opinion, but I found that aside and the underlying logic as kinda CRAZY. Like I can even be generous and grant the comment (given the Overwatch talk) is about having more than two forces in opposition (ie teams). But as a person that grew up on arena shooters and RTS, chaotic mass attacks between upwards of dozens of people is how I like my competitive multiplayer.

Then of course I might have just been a crazy old man with my 20 year old memories a few years ago except for a little niche genre that popped up called Battle Royale. Like I wonder if this is an age thing and that's why maybe PUBG grabbed a hold on the older Bombcast team (and folks like Will Smith) and maybe the younger cast coming in just don't connect with that kind of multiplayer. But I found the comment literally a crazy thing to say.

And that Nintendo press conference is why they stopped going to E3 and why Bethesda and others fill the audience with fans and shills.
