This is probably the most sophisticated margin-call ever. Google Image searches on your projector. Things are getting serious.

This look at the 'game' is far better than the game itself. This is quickly becoming some of my favorite GB content.

It's almost as if they did this on purpose. "THEY WANT AN ENDURANCE RUN, LET'S GIVE IT TO THEM! BUT IT'LL BE INTERNS AND FARMVILLE! THAT'LL TEACH 'EM!" Good thing this is actually pretty interesting in digestible chunks like this.

These videos are a true testament to the talent at Giant Bomb/Whiskey Media. They can take a game like FarmVille and make a hilarious series out of it. I fucking love you guys. Keep up the good work!

The football in Vinnys rundown was a nice touch, I also agree with others that this is one of the best produced video content released by Giant Bomb.

Not gonna lie. Lemon's farm is far more interesting than Bodega's.

I thought it was a missed opportunity that Vinny wasn't in the background talking on his mobile, but the coffee shop thing worked great too.

This is some of my favourite video content on the entire web, let alone GB, keep it up!

Yes, it's official. Giant Bomb is the best video game website of all time. It's probably the best thing related to video games.

Glorious episode. Kessler is the min-maxing supercotton god, but it seems like steve's luck is changing in the form of a jolly british pilot. THE PLOT THICKENS. 
 
Looking forward to part 5.

I love how behind him is a google search for pie charts. And how he has an obvious mic cord.

Great stuff.

A great schism will form in the GB community when people start to take sides. Farmville will become serious business.

Today this has changed from cassualy mocking the Farm Ville to actively promoting it... people here will sign up for it and some portion even sink money in it. I enjoy these videos, but I think you shouldn't have opened it up.

Kessler has supercotton but Steve has an airship. I just don't know which side to choose.

At least they never actively asked people to help the interns. Who wants to do it may do it. I don't care at all, I just want to watch these videos.

Thoughts:

  • I love that there's just a Google image search of "pie charts" being projected in the background for the investor call.
  • Vinny ordering a coffee in the background and Ryan playing with the football were great.
  • I'm intrigued to see how opening up the social element to the GB community will go and it's probably a good thing if this series wants to show what Farmville is really like.
  • The curveball of an airship suddenly coming out of nowhere for Lemon was brilliant and spices things up with a crazy random element.
  • How did Lemon get his farm up above 12x12?  This wasn't addressed but surely is a pretty big deal.
  • No idea who's going to win :)

Vinny is totally selling it as an business man. Sounds eerily real.
