So I sometimes something just happens inside or outside of giantbomb that reminds me of a game or feature you did during a certain live show that features multiple assortments of random games (i.e. UPF). I can't always remember the name of said game just the moments from the Live Show so I can't always search the site to see which video it came from. But I feel like having the games featured in the video should be part of the description in addition to the vague but funny description given by the Jason/Drew/Vinny. Also maybe a time stamp feature considering how long the streams can be. I think it would help a lot going forward. Just throwing this out there to see if it sticks.

Someone should make a Solitaire x Horse racing game. I know it's weird but I think it would work.

Hey is there still time and room to join this thing? I've never checked out a server that crazy before. Just mostly solo stuff.

I didn't say it already but welcome to the team. Giant BEast needs you. Thanks for filling the void that Patrick left and giving Alex and Vinny some extra hands. I look forward to seeing you and your work grow here on the site.

Take care Pat. Best endeavors on your next big thing. Your presence in the news will be sorely missed.

This is just silly. Why Mine craft? Telltale seems like the company that's just jumping at any opportunity to prove that they can use there style on any game/franchise/whatever. So far they've proven themselves right, but it just makes me feel like their next misstep will inevitably be around the corner. I don't know why they're trying to prove anything, I'd rather see them place their resources in one stack in a project that contains elements in what they know best and just do that really really well. I no longer know what Telltale is anymore. What's next Telltale's EVE Online?

Another thing about Dark Souls lore, which you may or may not have ever read into too much of, is that your character has the curse of the dark sign, is undead, and like Talion cannot die. It's slightly different but complicated to get into detail, but Dark Souls also has a nice story reason as to why all the enemies come back. Everything in the land cursed.

This topic has been an eye-opener for me an I'm really glad you decided to provide a stage to have a stable discussion on. I say this because until last week I had never even heard of GamerGate. It was up to me to decide what it really was from absorbing the surrounding conversation some of which I got from twitter others which I got from new articles like the Washington Post called "the only article you will need to read on the GamerGate". Taking that article at face value along with the other hype and spewed nonsense I didn't realize at first how complex it was. I didn't know what it even was after that. Was Gamer Gate a website like Kotaku? Was it a sub-reddit. Was it a term interchangeable with 8chan? Is it even a URL? Can I got to gamergate.com? Certainly not gamersgate.com cause that's a completely different thing!!! Was it just the name for the banner that a bunch of people were waving for a specific set of opinions or demands like "The Tea Party" had been used for some conservatives? I had no idea. This thing is a mess, it's madness, it's a web of lies, confusion and misdirection. 'It's hard to see 3 feet ahead of yourself in a shitstorm' to paraphrase totalbiscuit on the matter.

Which is why when I saw #StopGamerGate2014, I saw it for being this thing of clear good against clear evil and I opted in. Which I won't do again so easily. I wanted to target to the selfish, heartless bullies and maniacs threatening select people I cared about and never meant to target every single member of GamerGate. But at that time I saw them as no different because I could see what was going on. Hardly either side took any measures for clear and non-aggressive discord, which is why again I thank you @jeff and staff for doing this. This is also why I think so many people caught up in the debate have no idea what either side wants, stands for or even feels. It's important for everyone to get an educated, non-biased story of the matter to see what's going on and if what they think standing for is truly what they are they're standing for. And as it stands, doing that is next to impossible given how complicated and aggravated the truth has become. It's way easier to lose oneself to passion or resentment or give in to either the GG side or the anti-GG because that's where you stood before this all happened. It's unfair and unfortunate that innocent GG people got roped in with the horrible terror that went on because of all this. Now that I have some distance on the matter I can still say I'm not pleased with what Gamer Gate typically does even if they have good intentions sometimes do they ever produce good results? Is the verdict still out on that, I don't know? Anyway Gamer Gate seems to have been built on shitty foundations any way so it really doesn't matter if they have good intentions. If you take great politicians and put them in a government building made of straw you won't expect them to do good work and not get blown down or dissolve from within. It seems like people who actually care about discussing video game journalism/industry/ethics and matters related should grab a life boat and jump of the sinking ship that is Gamer Game. Even if it used to be good or had potential for good I don't see it making any come backs after this. It's proven to not be a very effective tool for open discussion, which is paramount in ANY community (no exceptions).

Thank you guys for listening and being such God damn bad-ass duders.

I don't really care what Mountain "tries" to do. I like it for what it is as a visual artistic piece. He's obviously not making it to please any one and that's perfectly reasonable. He's just doing it for the joy of making something. I can respect that.
