This was actually the game that I saw and wanted to play that made me buy a 360 back when this came out. The Thousand Years Of Dreams was really cool and very interesting and had some cool things to say about what it might be like to be immortal and the effects it would have on you and the world etc. Really cool battles with great graphics for a JRPG fan too.

The worst thing is that due to insomnia I woke up early this morning and couldn't go back to sleep, the silver lining here was that it was literally about 10 minutes before Alex was on. It was a great way to start a Thursday earlier than I wanted to! Awesome to see some GB hype in the chat too! Totally awesome that you guys all did this.

It's a bummer that 2 years in a row now you've ended with a sourness in your mouth to say the least. I do really hope you feel much better about 2015. But I think that @kerafyrm is right in the sense that there are good things that happen as well and we have to remember that also, no matter how hard it is to dig deep and find them. They may not feel like they outweigh or counterbalance the absolute essence of shit that is on the other side of the scale, but we can't forget them either. We always have to have at least hope otherwise we've already lost.... man that was really hard to say coming from a complete and utter cynic as well. Progress always seems to be made in tiny baby steps hidden in mounds of other regression.

there was not enough vinny on this website in 2014

Totally agree. I'm always very eager for any GBeast content we get. We've gotten less Vinny and Alex, now we're losing a Patrick, but on the upside we've added a Dan and a Jason. Things won't always be the same but hopefully they'll at least always be good. Here's to hoping for a great GB 2015.

Man... @patrickklepek I don't know why but if anyone is able to make me teary-eyed it is you, sir. You were a fantastic part of Giant Bomb and I'll miss you again (just as when you went back to Chicago and were no longer on the podcast) but I'm excited to see what you do in the future. GLHB in everything you do.

I was just thinking last night about this and how I was dreading having to think about it. As usual the other members of GB have put perfectly into words what I think. Anytime I think about the loss of someone I think of that Chris Cornell song "Wave Goodbye". I hate to say that I hope it gets easier for you if it means losing touch with those memories, so perhaps I can just hope that instead you'll somehow maintain them only without the feelings of profound loss. I also wish I could say something more that would be helpful, but I too feel that I don't have the words.

You said "I can only hope to live a life that touches as many people as those two did. If I do a fraction of what they did, I’ll be happy." and I'd just like to say that I think you are well on your way sir, I don't think you'll ever have to worry about that. Best wishes to you @patrickklepek

Great article Patrick, also thanks for including Douglas Wilson's article it was great to read especially after watching Bananasaurus Rex's over 3mil score run. I like seeing a community of people dedicated to these things and being able to watch it and feel like I'm getting to be a part of something even though I don't have as much time to play as I'd like or watch the streams live all the time or anything like that.

Gamestop has always been shit. I worked there for just under 10 years, I was lucky that I started when I did though, which was back when it was Babbages Etc. They never were a great place to work and have only gotten exponentially shittier since I started back in '98. I worked with a number of different women there (in fact was hired by one) and all of them were treated horribly. I remember the woman who hired me told me one of the reasons she hired me was because I "was the only guy who applied that didn't stare at her tits the whole interview". Sad. And that isn't even talking about any of their business practices. I really do hope they are on their way out with all of the changes in the way games are bought these days.

@rorie Wow that is very interesting as everyone else on here has said, and also you do write very well. Also please thank @patrickklepek for putting this in the Worth Reading which is where I saw it, as I don't generally have/take the time to look at stuff in the forums very often at all.

Did anyone hear them talk about being close to the podcasts you listen to and mention Ryan Davis thanks to a fellow Bombcast/Sklarbro listener write a letter on this weeks Sklarbro Country?! I thought that was great and it is good to know there are other crossover Bombcast/Sklar listeners. It is great to always hear about how much even short interactions can affect you with people. I just thought it was really great that not only did someone write in to them to talk about it, but that they read it and talked about those things that help you through life and how grateful we are for the things everyone puts out there.

For those interested this is Ep 157 and it's at around 57 minutes in:
