I guess it really was the staff that made GB what it was for me. If you put any past or current staff member in the seats of these shows rather than the assortment of people they've chosen I'd probably be on board. Like, Albummer sounds like a fine concept but are any of those people even in the games industry? Or have any relation to the staff whatsoever? I'm all for learning about new voices but I just don't even see the connection there. Unsurprisingly, Jan's show sounds like the choice pick of the three but I've got zero interest in Power Rangers.
Happened to my Dad's handi-bus-turned-work-vehicle just a few weeks ago and he lives in a pretty small town about an hour from the city where I live. It was the first time I had heard of it being a thing people do but apparently it's because the palladium in the converter makes them valuable.
He didn't want to go through the hassle on insurance so his mechanic just put a straight pipe in its place (I'm not a car person I don't know the technical details). So apparently it runs normal but it just makes the vehicle worse for the environment because the converter would make the exhaust "cleaner" or something? He didn't care about the environmental impact so he's content with the fix and that it won't get ripped out again as there's no value there anymore.
I'm glad that they decided to continue doing podcasts/video I'm excited to see what's to come. I don't know exactly how Patreon operates but I wish they just had their tiers in USD. If I'm reading everything correctly, I'd actually be saving money (although not very much) just letting my credit card do the conversion from USD to CAD rather than pay the Canadian price of $7 or $13.50 that they have for the first two tiers respectively.
A lot of League of Legends spoke to me but I just couldn't get good at it. Partially due to only playing with friends and never "practising" on my own because of bad queue anxiety in MOBAs in particular compared to other games. For a long time I just kept up with the professional play and streamers and kind of lived the game through that but I haven't really paid attention to League in a while now. I really hope their spin-off games end up being good because I like the characters and universe of League a lot at the time.
I don't think about it constantly or anything, but I wish Naughty Dog gave Jak and Daxter a longer run. I'd trade The Last of Us 1 & 2 for a single Jak and Daxter in a heartbeat but that's just me. I don't think I'd want it to be like Ratchet and Clank where it had sequels spanning multiple generations or anything but at least a few more games (from the original team) would've been nice.
I'm getting the same problem as some people here on my iPad. Safari and Chrome won't load videos (nothing happens when you click/tap the play button). The Giant Bomb Video Buddy still works fine, however.
An office building in my city went under during lockdown and were using a third party to sell 900+ of their Steelcase Leap V2's so I picked one of those up for only a few hundred bucks (Canadian). I enjoy it so far but I don't have a lot of other chairs to compare it to unfortunately. From my research it seems like a situation like this is a fairly common occurrence in metropolitan cities so my recommendation is if you aren't in a rush keep an eye out on Kijiji or whatever your local marketplace is for someone to be offloading some Herman Miller or Steelcase.
