Split or Steal seems like something special.

Before I say this, let me preface this by also saying I totally get why people like the Business Dave Top 10 and Dave himself (seems like a super chill dude regardless) and enjoy seeing his segment on UPF. I however personally can't stand those segments (for the most part) for a variety of reasons of which I won't get into here. Needless to say, again, I get why you and others like the segment and miss it when it's not on during a UPF. I just don't think that segment is for me sadly.
Also did you know the Kansas City Chiefs were based out of Kansas?!? (btw they aren't)
@lordloc: As amusing as the mix up was, being from St. Louis originally and growing up as a huge Rams fan, the Chiefs may as well have been from Kansas for many of us, honestly. Same thing with the Royals.
is there a giantbomb org yet
@catnamedvirtue: RARQYZ for giantbomb org!
Did Business Dave jinx the 49ers last week? Rate on a scale of EZ to 5EZs
@lordloc: Business Dave is the best part of these
I've realized that for months now I scan through the recording to see if BIDNESS DAVE makes an appearance. I mean don't get me wrong I watch UPF regardless but I love me some top 10.
oh how long i've waited to finally see GB crew cover granblue
lowain bros are best bros also are completely busted .
lots of great characters in the game Season one has some decent picks so this game seems like a great way to get new people in to the grind hell that is gbf lol
PATA PATA PATA PON
What the heck is going on: why are they taking about video games?
Forces and Rangers are for chumps. Give me a HuCast any day of the week. Gotta get up there in the thick of it!
Business Dave and Rorie makes UPF...
@theampersand: Yep. Good catch.
That Granblue game is Life.
I never thought I'd see Jasper Carrott on UPF
No Business Dave, no watch.

@lordloc: That’s a valid viewpoint. I personally have not been able to make it through a UPF for what seems like 2 years unless Rorie is on or most recently there is a Business Dave segment I fast forward to. Different strokes I guess!
@katsu044: besides the characters this doesnt have anything to with what granblue fantasy is though right? Im very interested in versus but have 0 interest in a phone app with gatcha mechanics. Versus wont change that. Especially after hearing it called a "grindhell" hahaha thats seems like the worst :)
Man, if i had know that's what Patapon was like back when it came out, i'd have been all over it. That game looks extremely my type of shit.
Really great episode today guys. All the games were total winners. Do a "we learn Gran blue" series I'd watch the shit outta that 🤠
I love how y'all knew it was a "prisoners dilemma" game and still stole....
Indeed The Genius has the best kind of mind trickery, ever seen on TV.
TG is not just the best game show, it's probably the best show ever. The twists, the music and incredibly smart and classy contestants.
Gran blue seems like a good secondary fighting game. Not too complicated where u have to dedicate ur life to it but still has the ingredients for a great fighting game.
@lionsy: Golden Balls was the pinnacle of after school TV
The story/single-player mode has a bunch of mechanics lifted from the mobile game, like building weapon 'grids' to maximize your power, etc.
There's apparently also a gacha (for weapon skins?) but I don't know how it works exactly.
Yo do we have a Giant Bomb org yet for Split or Steal?
@ragingwraith: Came here to ask the same thing.
Regarding GBVS, and Jeff's wondering "why can't I make the fireball come", if you do a special with the heavy button, it functions as your EX version (meter is only for supers), and will put that special on a longer cooldown regardless of whether you used the actual input command or the shortcut button. If you do light or medium fireballs with the quarter-circle command, the cooldown might as well not exist.
@lionsy: Yeah, same. Literally haven't thought about that dude in years.
Just throwing this out there but I don't think there could be a more perfect follow-up to God Hand and Asura's Wrath for @benpack and Jason then Wonderful 101 series. Just a random thought I had during the Patapon segment because I guess I was bored...
Same here. With a few exceptions, UPFs have become mostly the same all the time. In every episode there's at least one or two of these: a fighting game, a brawler, an indie platformer, 8-bit/16-bit games.
I miss the days when they played more random weird games (either from Steam or old PC games) or when they went back to games from old consoles (like PS1, PS2, og Xbox) and talked about those old times.
My biggest problem is with the fighting games though. I never found them interesting to watch and it often seems to be the genre that shows up more and the type of games they spend more time with.
edit: Split or Steal was good though.
I argue that Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution is not horny. I actually got it for my first year of university because all fighting games embarrassed me.
@lordloc: why dont you like business daves top 10 segment|? i personally love it
@brainscratch: @humanity: @lordloc:
I accepted long ago that UPF is something to put up on a 2nd screen while grinding through a game or the like. More to hear the chatter among the crew and the occasional look to see what is being played.
Favorite out of context quote so far: "Is this the one where Thomas Jefferson is a lion?" - @benpack
I was not expecting that Thomas Middleditch reference.
There was a US game show called Friend or Foe hosted by Kennedy that seems kinda like Split or Steal.
Tell me, where is banana bread? In the heart, or in the head?
Is the audio out of sync with the video for anyone else?
I will say, the opening night of PSO2's CBT was a mess. But they got it fixed up later that night, and I've been playing since this morning at 10am est, with little issue.
The music theme of the store for Split and Steal sounds super familiar. I know I've heard it somewhere before. It's gotta be from some royalty-free asset pack or something right? I distinctly remember it from the home screen or "win" screen from some mobile game.
Music starts about 7:45 mins into the video.
Jeff and Ben have such different fighting game faces. Jeff looks pissed, Ben looks totally lost in the fight
