    On the technical side, they still haven't totally fixed the distortion that sometimes happens when people talk at the same time which made me switch to the audio version to get a clearer discussion.

    Ben was the last one on staff that regularly uses Twitter and he was great at it. RIP GB staff tweets feed.

    I know it's not technically GB, but people saying there's no content for Monday obviously haven't been listening to Brad and Will's Techpod.Regarding the amount of content, I find it hard to criticize...

    That's why they invite a bunch of friends of the site to write about their favorite games to supplement the game of the year discussions.

    This setup is probably gonna be close to what they do for GOTY so hopefully all the audio issues can be ironed out by the time they record.

    The audio version is the way to go for this episode.

  • sicamore posted a message in the forum topic Abby on the MinnMax show talks leaving GB and the future. on the General Discussion board

    It's not possible to be popular and have a "good" community at the same time. The US elections have proven that approximately 50% of people suck, so statistically, trolls are unavoidable. If a communi...

    It's never worth the performance hit to use ultra graphics settings, especially if you're streaming. Besides the difference usually being insignificant, the video bitrate will not be able to show wha...

  • sicamore posted a message in the forum topic I'm getting tired of GB's dismissive attitude towards the new consoles. on the General Discussion board

    I disagree with your assessment that they haven't discussed it fairly. The reasons to wait vastly outnumber the reasons to buy a new console day one, especially with this pre order mess or if you're ...

    Vinny, I think you should compare stream settings with Brad. The black levels and colors in the Breaking Brad video after this look more accurate to me.

  • sicamore posted a message on the post Episode 271.

    Seems like they fixed Abby's audio issue. Another thing I'd like to point out is the slightly blown out contrast on streams Vinny hosts.

    It doesn't matter how negative or positive they are, as long as it's their honest opinion.It's always the same - people seek validation for liking something and feel bad when GB doesn't give that to t...

  • sicamore posted a message on the post Episode 266.

    The one new thing Vinny said they were going to do for "E3 Season" was a weekly news wrap up thing, so I'm guessing that they decided to scrap that idea.
