My wife thanks for the spotlight during this tumultuous GOTY season. Much appreciate it!
@jagubrah - I'm replaying the campaign with the DLC right now and there is a lot of new stuff even without it, after lots of free patches.
The character builds were changed, the pilot skills were revamped and made more useful. The survivability of mechs was also tweaked so cover and positioning (which go well with new tanking skills) are much more important now. The economy was also redone a bit, with more quests of different difficulty in each zone you fly to, so no more 20-day flights just to get to one or two mediocre missions.
Flashpoint DLC content made the mercenary aspect of the game more fleshed out, with branching short stories and fun conversations with your crew. The missions vary in quality, from ok to very good, they are more interesting than the random ones and give better rewards while also giving your pals on the ship some limelight.
All in all it was worth a buy, thanks to all the changes introduced in patches and the DLC the 2nd playthrough is not boring at all.
It was a good year.
Jupiter was my crush in primary school.
Always the best.
Now just make an official mobile app (although Video Bomb is fine by me) and replace placeholders with some graphics in old series like TANG or Metal Gear Scanlon and I'll be elated.
That's a great, sleek and readable design.
Oh man, all the feels.
The bat vs knife debate is the one I always play to someone who asks me what podcasts do I listen to.
And Bombcast was my first podcast ever. I followed Jeff and Ryan on GameSpot, but never felt the need to get into podcasting, as video content was already starting to gain momentum on GS. When Jeff got fired I was checking once in a while what that guy is up to and created the account the day Giant Bomb started. And then checked the podcasts, just out of curiosity, because I liked what that Gerstmann dude was doing previously. I've never been the same ever since.
I've known my wife as long as I know Giant Bomb crew. We met only a couple of months after GB launched and my current life is and probably always will be connected to this site. 10 years is a fucking millenium in Internet years. I've never missed a podcast. Not once. You were there with me when I was driving to work, when I was driving long hours to my then girlfriend before we moved in together, you were there when I was cleaning the house, mowing the lawn, making a trip to my family, when I was moving out and in during my college years and after it and you were there with me literally any time I had at least a couple of minutes to myself. I've wasted countless hours on watching you guys do stupid shit and I love this site for it.
My wife during Christmas knows I need a few hours a day to listen to your furious GOTY deliberations and appreciates that you were responsible in a very serious way for my personality, character and a sense of humor, so she doesn't have a problem with it. You formed my opinions since the day I've listen to the fist Bombcast. And I will always support you. I was 22 when you started, I'm 32 with a wife and kid now and I still have you in my life. My tastes changed numerous times, my life changed dramatically, many of my favorite things changed or disappeared.
There is only one true constant in my life for the past decade and it's this website. About video games.
Reading Jeff's opinions always reminds me how I miss his written reviews and thoughts - he's an eloquent guy on the podcasts and in videos, but there is something more in the text form, he's less salty and way more informative, while still being hilarious.
