To this day, Link’s Awakening is the only Zelda game I’ve really ever been invested in, so I will join the Grubb partisans in the great ranking war.

Are Users allowed to Tag games mentioned in Bombcast episodes? I was trying to add HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed and keep getting an error message.

Personally I was way more interested in hearing Grubb finish his zelda thought of "its the game that taught me that games could-" than I was in hearing Dan shriek loudly over him about how his opinions on the rankings of the zelda games was correct. Maybe let the substantive discussion occur instead of meaningless obnoxious behavior? Huge bummer when this happens.

@noises: I remember him talking about this more in depth in something else, it might have been on their ranking of Zelda games? (on his youtube channel) I'm not sure though

I'm the exact opposite in regards to Stranger Things and Westworld.
Season 4 of Westworld started recently and it is back to the great mystery/sci-fi show it was in Season 1/2. Season 3 wasn't very good, it just felt like set up for something bigger that didn't happen. Westworld (and Severance) is still one of the coolest tv series in a long time.
I stopped watching Stranger Things after episode 1 of season 3, it just stopped being interesting. Hearing of these 2.5 hour episodes deters me me even more.

Shitting on nooks and crannies? Have these motherfuckers never had an English muffin in their lives?

Also isn't New Genesis the relaunched, massive revamp to PSO2, not the decade old PSO2 Jason is talking about?

Going to be such a shame when Xenoblade 3 comes out and all of GB just ignores it.

I feel like people are leaning into the “Dan doesn’t know that?!” Too much. Save it for things that are actually a shock. I’m sure he’s there for it, but it feels more like bullying than it used to. Maybe it’s just me.

@endofastart: I feel like it’s gotten better since the Beastcast, personally. The final few months of Dan’s tenure at East was like “Dan says a thing, Alex/Bakalar/one more person immediately jumps down his throat”. Nowadays, I think Grubb does a really good job of moving past that initial phase and immediately getting to “figure out a good Dan brain way to explain it”. I doubt any of it is mean-spirited since Dan and Bakalar are good friends, but I agree that it gets to be a tedious bit after a point.

Heh, weird to hear Bakalar complain about some of the acting in Stranger Things. Watched all of Season 4 and can’t say I have a clue about who he’s talking about being that bad on the show. Maybe he confirmed who he was talking about and I simply missed that part.
