    This was the best run so far. Their reaction to the new boss they encounter and the ending is hilarious. It's just too bad the comments are ruined by armchair scientists.

    I came to the comment section to read about the hilarious ending. I am disappointed. All of the people talking about science ruined the fun.

    So, I think it may have been a little unfair to do a Quick Look before the servers were online. I didn't expect this, but the semi-competitive stuff in the Rally mode is pretty addicting.

    I played a bit of this at San Diego Comic Con. I was pleasantly surprised by the mechanics and it seemed like it had the potential for being a decent game. However, after No Man's Sky, I finally real...

  • SlinkDickens posted a message on the post Quick Look: Bound.

    Man, the last few east coast quick looks have bugged me with how much they go off on tangents. I like quick looks as a casual discussion of the game as it's played. I don't mind the occasional tangent...

    I'm thinking about pre-ordering. I'm at a point in my career where I have more money than I need and $600 doesn't represent a huge amount of money to me. I'm not saying that to brag, but just to point...

    @hassun: Anyone who thinks the GB crew wrote off Hotline Miami 2 for simple reasons clearly didn't listen to the podcast.

  • SlinkDickens posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Episode 27.

    It seems like this year more than ever, it's popular to hate on Black Friday. People still recycle videos and stories from 2008 and older and try to play up the violence. It's actually kind of despica...

    The new PvP mode in Destiny is pretty fun. I don't think Brad should dismiss it so fast. I never got into Destiny's PvP, but the new mode is cool. It's like a mini tournament that moves really fast. I...

    Listening to them talk about mortgage and there's one major point they have wrong. When you get a mortgage, you own your home. The bank does not own it. That's part of the reason there's a stack of pa...

  • SlinkDickens posted a message on the post Bungie Details Destiny's First Expansion.

    Given how lean the base game is, I think this expansion should be free. Personally, $20 is nothing to me, but I think it's enough of a barrier to make a lot of people skip it, which will translate in...
