I just bought a Ring Fit, it really is awesome. Glad it has a long tail to it.

Today I was thinking about how it would be cool if they released DLC for it, with new exercises and things like that.

I love Rorie's justification for building a new pc. Hard drive need to be re-seated or replaced? Better get a new processor and mb. I can relate, just upgraded from skylake to ryzen 3rd gen as well.

Actually agreed with Rorie on something for once with the Geoff Keighley E3 announcement take, then at the very end he ruins it all disparaging Tater Tots.

They should make a Ring Fit except with powerlifting , barbells and all. If they can get the $1,800 expense into $95, I'd buy it

So the Sonic movie is super just a boilerplate kids movie, right? I don't trust the audience score because Sonic fans are insane.

On loud vehicles. In Melbourne when the F1s still had the louder V10 engines, you could hear them on the other side of the city pretty often. Over 5 km (3 miles) away.

Groundhog Day is more of a Soulslike. He learns enemy patterns and follows them and also keeps what he learns but not his souls.

Odd that the trouble is taken to add descriptors to the discussion in the video itself but no timestamps.

Ring Fit rules, and I'm glad Ben is sticking to it. Came at the perfect time because Chicago winters kill so many of my outdoor cardio activities for months.

I got the impression Geoff isn't comfortable just acting like the ESA didn't dox thousands of people last year with no real, proper response from them for make goods.

Rorie talking about how hot it is at E3 every year makes it sound like the climate is changing or something.

Y'all need to keep Rorie in the podcast rotation, otherwise it's just Jeff and Ben talking for the majority of the Bombcast, despite having others in the studio.

@deadstar: Vinny is talking about it quite a bit on the Beastcast. It may just be that no one on the west coast has really dug into it enough to have something meaningful to say about it. I wouldn’t interpret it as a deliberate snub/omission.

Such a weak cast, this podcast is a shadow of its former self. Unless Jeff and Brad are both on to carry the rest of the crew, I just skip most of it.

So depressing :(

"Hello, my name is Rory, I state things about Sony's first-party that don't actually hold up to scrutiny if you actually look at every release for the past three (or more) generations. I also ignore what MS's first-party currently looks like and what some of those studios have produced."

Yes, how silly of me to expect something better - meme-ish, fanboy-driven logic is the rule! (and no, you don't have to be one to just accept things on face value that you should, ya know, question - especially if such things are heavily warranted given your job). And yes, this is Giant Bomb, where most of them cannot be bothered to be even partially well informed, and blah blah blah.

Still gonna whine about it in the comments. QQQ.

I agree, but I think Brad done is less negative than Jeff gone, but really, the rest of the crew almost doesn't matter wrt show quality - you need more than just those two, but you definitely need both of them if you want peak beastness.

Also - Rory being there is almost a negative modifier on top of all of that.
