It's pretty crazy how much the content suffers when Jeff isn't around. Glad to have you back Neo Papa.

I think this was prerecorded before Jeff's leave but I could be wrong...

This was recorded before Jeff went on parental leave. I can tell by Ben’s beard. He was pretty clean shaven on Friday’s UPF

I want Jeff to be back, but the heart knows this was most likely recorded before Jeff went on leave.

@null_subject: I mean I'm happy to see him too, but I can't say I really agree with him being the backbone of all content. Plenty good shows happen without Jeff.

In my head cannon there is this Giant Bomb mother that exists off screen (like Peanuts or Muppet Babies) and forces the other kids to let their little brother (Ben) play. We all know his humor is off and he is constantly breaking things but Mom forces them to let him be part of the show (or there will not be a show at all.)

@the_nubster: I guess with Ben doing so much they needed an intern. I'm curious as to his views on Funko Pops.

I'm seeing thoughts that this was recorded before, fine! I miss Jeff, I'll take it whatever way I can. Even if I don't normally watch gametapes.

Man, I played a lot of Force Commander. It was buggy as hell but it did some cool things. But I think I mostly just liked playing a Total Annihilation-esque RTS that was Star Wars units.
