Imagine memetic nanomachines.

That's the real singularity.

The first time I saw a Beam stream was probably pretty shortly after it launched, last year. I was utterly blown away by the picture quality, and the way the streamers instantly responded to stuff in chat was pretty magical. Later in the year, I watched another stream by the same group and it was unwatchable. It would "buffer" (read: freeze) CONSTANTLY, and most of chat complained of the same issues. The streamers had no idea what was different.

If the problem is on Beam's side, and they actually worked that stuff out, then I'm 100% into what they're doing. For what it's worth, the Giant Bomb streams I've watched that used Beam have been OK to great... never in that "Unwatchable" territory. So yeah, I'm totally cool with still trying it out!

@andythemez: He in fact said "firebaww" which isn't a word. Which basically proves he was baiting them from the start, due to it being pretty much the right answer, but skewed slightly (deliberately) to not be.

Very interesting perspective, dude!

I guess that concept can sort of include everything, huh? Much as I appreciate being raised devoid of religion, I imagine even thermodynamics and particle physics kind of can't address what Om does. Or maybe they do, just in different ways, or among other things? In fact, I read that some believe "aum" was the first sound at the start of creation... Big Bang: New Box, Same Taste! I can definitely see the appeal of a fundamental, simple "truth" that applies universally. Personally, I get that from science, but I also respect that some people want something more. Knowing the diversity of Hinduism, there are even multiple different interpretations of Om. I'm guessing that could entail spiritual implications, or even complex metaphysics and other philosophies.

And HEY, there's still a place in culture for ancient epic poetry! I mean, not that I've read it either... I just have faith Kratos will get there some day.

Haha I guess this topic would start getting bumped earlier in the day now...

Also, I'm getting really anxious about it not being listed. Though it's probably like UPF in that, unless otherwise specifically stated, you can expect it at the regular time, even if it's not listed.

These are great. Perhaps some of the most important works in Giant Bomb cultural history.

We've come a long way since ancient inhabitants of this site formed a culture centered on this enigmatic artifact:

Indeed, Giant Bomb puts so much effort into the many, many hours of insane, insightful, and hilarious coverage they come up with!

Thanks duders!
