@shadgandel: I hate getting involved in this sort of discussion but this time I do agree with you. I actually think GB having a SWERY list (especially after this years events with him) is offensive at the least and grossful ignorance at it's worst. GB always strives to be inclusive etc which I applaud completely, but having a guy who espouses seemingly transphobic stuff in his games seems quite opposite to that narrative.

Well, I was wondering what happened to Cloth Map, haven't seen anything new in awhile so I guess knowing how the pandemic affected things for you Drew it makes sense to close up shop on it. I also had no idea you joined a game studio, so late congrats on that one. As usual, a fun list of games with an interesting Arcade portion that I wouldn't have guessed in a million years. Especially since I grew up with arcades, and there must be so few actual arcades left now, it's sad :(

@tadthuggish: Wait are you saying Greg pushed aside critics of Colin, or something else? Because unless I'm missing the context, if Greg steamrolled critics of Colin, that means he overwhelmingly brushed them aside. Is there something Colin did or Greg did that I'm missing? I mean I know about the "sexist" stuff Colin said in the past (which wasn't sexist imo, but whatever) and him leaving Kinda Funny etc.

@vizruy: White nationalists telling you that when you are at a BLM protest is one thing though. And they can fuck right off, since it IS your right to protest. And you should protest, considering the bullshit garbage dumpster fire the US police system is. However, again this isn't a free country/website (and I hate saying that again lol) it is theirs and they have rules everyone has to follow etc as I'm sure you'd expect. And don't get me wrong, you pointing out things you feel important to you about GB is fine and all that - but not when Rorie etc have said no more discussion on that subject and what not.

If you have further complaints or worries about the thing you brought up, I say go for it, but like Rorie said, do it in the forums, in private or email etc. And again, fuck white nationalists. Just sayin.

@vizruy: Guess what, this isn't a free country. It's their site, their rules. Don't like it, don't come here anymore? And before you question me, yes I'd say it if they said the same thing about something important to me etc. It's their website, not mine or yours.

@vizruy: And how is any of that Vinny's fault? He doesn't run GB you know. He doesn't make hiring decisions (though I'm sure his opinions are taken into consideration) nor does he make firing decisions I'm sure. And a sanctimonious rant? How does going after insurrectionists make him sanctimonious?

@400lb_gorilla: Yeah not sure why Savage Garden is getting ripped here. Truly Madly Deeply is a terrific song, only problem with it is it got played SO much on the radio, but that's about it.

As for Cher's Believe, another awesome song and Cher (not so much anymore I guess) was an awesome singer. I dunno, I feel like the GB crew, specifically one person in particular (heh) might have issues with these songs. And that some of the uh - *younger* crew haven't heard some of these anywhere near as much as Jeff/Vinny/Brad/Jason so probably aren't as jaded so to speak. Maybe.

@robubie: I liked Dusk quite a lot but Prodeus is so much better in nearly every way. Unless you don't want new fangled rendering style tech in your old school style FPS, nearly everything about the game is old school but with new modern twists and the whole package is just awesome. Now honestly, the SP right now (dunno if MP is gonna be involved at all) is fairly short but it did just come out in EA after all. As other people have mentioned though, the community maps and even campaigns are pretty good (some are even quite impressive actually.)

Also for what it's worth - Prodeus' guns feel and sound so much better than Dusk or any of the old school retro FPS games really. I mean some of those games are great fun mind you so don't think I'm just bashing them or anything. Also the music kicks ASS :D

I was about 15 when this came out and it still scared the crap outta me back then lol It definitely still has some great practical effects and gruesome deaths (that down the sink one is the one that freaked me out the most heh). Also I had a huge crush on Shawnee Smith back in those days and the really weird thing is I just finished watching The Stand today again (I usually rewatch it around Halloween time yearly) which she's also in.

This series continues to be the best, gonna miss you so much Abby!!! Thanks for all of the laughs and the crazy frights!

Is she leaving GB or something? Or do you mean 2020's 6CF is almost over?

It's not really on the GB front page, but it's covered here:

https://www.giantbomb.com/articles/the-community-spotlight-20201017/1100-6027/

and here:

https://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion-30/abby-is-leaving-giant-bomb-at-the-end-of-november-1888226/

both of which link to Abby's tweet about when she will be leaving. Also Abby mentioned it on the most recent Beastcast (episode 282).

Aw man, that sucks. Yeah, haven't watched the most recent Beastcast, nor have I checked the forums in a bit. I guess it's about that time though, 4 years is a long time to work as a video producer/content creator for a major gaming site like this.
