Drew looked like he was gonna choke up at the end ever so briefly; that was a really thoughtful gift.

I know that it's tossing a big ol bump to a "competitor", but is a bummer waypoint's 72hr launch stream this whole weekend didn't get one mention, even w/jeff, vinny and austin kicking it off near the start. :(

@rorie: I'd like to thank you along with @bisonhero and @metaigearrex, because I have a very specific memory of asking if gravity pushes or pulls matter in 6th grade science class. For some reason half the class laughed, and the teacher gave me such a vague, textbook answer that I never dug into it further. It's kinda great that GB comment threads can lead to real elucidation here and there.

vAbove everything else, I am stunned Dan's only seen Robocop once and it didn't stick. Of all the 80's movies, the fact Dan passed that one by and otherwise hooked onto Predator, Cobra, the Rocky series, the entire John Carpenter milieu, etc. Robocop is Dan's movie.

I say this as someone who's grown to love Dan as a monster over his tenure at GB, and as someone who has watched Robocop 30-40ish times (Robocop 2 aboot 10-15). I just assumed it was in his wheelhouse from the get-go. Good god Dan, embrace dystopian Detroit. You have so many fresh quotes to deploy...

I'm sorry, did @drewbert make a T&E reference @ 14:26?

@brad: I think it's OK for you guys to experiment with a spoiler cut-off point in Quick Looks. Not just saying 'turn this off if you don't want to be spoiled', but doing the QL more or less spoiler free as normal, then have a thing come up that says something like 'spoiler zone' at the 16 minute mark of this video and continue to show off the stuff you wish you could but 'can't'.

When it's hyper-clear, I think people can/should make their own decision if they want to keep watching or not.

Alright, this comment gave me the idea of making someone else who's finished the game sit down with me later this week to replay some of the more memorable sections so we can gush about what we liked. Wouldn't work so well for every game, but this one has the easy chapter select + insane moments that would make it appropriate. Someone help me think of a name.

In general I'm more hesitant to show off too much before a game is out for purchase. Five hours after release there will be full playthroughs posted on YouTube, so post-release feels like a more appropriate time to dig into more of it if people want it.

Why do you feel the need to delay this type of feature, though? I think it's a great idea too, but there's no need to assume your users don't know what they want and that they "need" a delay in spoiler-ish content because they can't decide for themselves (there was actually a study recently that showed people tend to actually enjoy things more that are spoiled for them ahead of time in many cases, oddly enough). Frankly, in this case, people will have beaten it the day it comes out anyway, or even before in some cases.

You might as well mark it as a spoilercast and release it ASAP. Otherwise, people WILL go to YouTube for that type of content when they can't get it here.

In this specific instance, Brad was the only one in GB that had access to play the game before the recording of the video. I think that's doable for games where more than 1 person gets pre-release, but for this that's not feasible. I don't really want a Spoilery QL solo, either.

I am surprised @alex made a Shrimp and White Wine joke, but didn't comment on the Napple a few minutes later.

Anyone else having a problem where stopping and playing the bombcast mid-stream causes the player to hang up? Reloading the page lets it play from the start A-OK, but skipping ahead from there just results in the spinning tape spool w/no other response.
