If you left within the first two months of launch the game has changed in a lot of ways. The core gameplay is still there but they've added many QoL changes over the past couple of patches along with tons of content. If you haven't played since 2.1(December 2013) or before there's more then enough to fill your appetite now. The grind that was present in 2.0 with only 1-2 dungeons is no longer a thing neither is only leveling off fates. Weekly capping has a bunch of options Dungeon Roulette's (Multiple Types), Hunts, PvP, Endgame Coil, CT/ST 24 man raids, Treasure Maps, etc. Not to mention leveling has its own Roulette's along with weekly challenge logs and dungeon XP was vastly upgraded to compete with fates. If you enjoyed the game but the CM/Adampor grind turned you away its not an issue anymore.
There will always be people who just don't get it and feel the need to claim superiority by putting down things others enjoy without giving the subject matter a chance. As a kid I continued to watch cartoons into adult hood and was made fun of all while growing up. Now as I've gotten older many of those people have come out of the wood work and acted like they've always loved it. I learned well into my teens don't knock it til you try and it stop caring about the haters who will continue to hate it. Well written post by the way I'll have to check this Kill La Kill out.
Truly the only changes I would make would be something like this...just let the GB text and logo stand out with some white. I see online that places that make patches allow for nine colors. I think with nine colors patches based on this would be AWESOME.
This is a fantastic idea @rorie should make patches happen!
All the best Vinny I know you and Alex will do great things in NY. While I'm bummed that the Bombcast will be down one more person I know this will only lead to better things. I'm glad you were able to stay with Giantbomb while being able to be back with your family. Can't wait to see what you and Alex come up with whatever may come down the road I'll keep tuning in week after week.
