Ihop has a really good philly cheese steak. We used to always end up there at 3 am in salt lake after the bars and one day out of the blue I got the philly cheese steak and it was super good.

Jan and Abby got great chemistry. A show with the two of them would be very interesting.

As a longtime GB fan I can say with some authority that none of us want content at the expense of the staff's wellbeing. If the vlog is fun then do it but if you need to edit it next week or scale it back or abandon it to get more sleep then you should do that without hesitation or any regrets. It's really fun to watch but not if it's making it harder for you to enjoy your time there.

Those steaks look grey and disgusting, I would have sent that shit back because the grill was definitely not hot enough.

Abby I swear these vlog are my favorite thing about e3 this year.

Edit: If doing these are too much stress for the rest of e3 then don't worry about it. That said, I have thoroughly enjoyed every one.

I'm just curious what color the steaks are that you eat? Isn't cooked meat usually grey?

Yes and no.

The steaks don't look great, but as Dan said, it seems to be price over quality. No one is going into the iHop expecting 'good' steak.

The issue, as someone not from America, is that the steaks haven't been rested properly (hence the blood and colour), there seems to be no seasoning (personal preference I guess), and the quality of the meat.

They are oddly thin, leading to a total grey colour, and the fact that they need to be medium rare to be tasty shows the lack of quality.

Kinda wish the empty days between press conferences could have been used to record videos of playing competitive games with eachother. But I'm sure people had appointments and needed breaks in between.

Why would you ever order something from IHOP that isn't a breakfast item? That's like ordering sushi from a KFC. Of course it's going to be bad no matter how cheap it is. Also, you guys can afford to eat at a restaurant that doesn't give you diarrhea, especially during a stressful work trip. Unless you enjoy that sort of thing.

Love seeing Jan's production tips. I've been making gifs with ffmpeg like a pleb. Here's hoping we get a bit more behind the scenes Jason action, if he's not otherwise preoccupied catching up on his shows in his downtime.

Jan: Wanna see how I make Gifs or Jifs, whatever...

Abby: It's pronounced Gif.

Jan: Not according to Will Smith.

Are we sure we should take pronouncing advice from a man who says Exec-u-table?

Those were some sad looking steaks, I don't know if Dan just really hates the idea of being a "fancy" person but how can you want to pay money to have that steak served to you...

Steak should have a nice brown crust on the outside, with a pink/red inside, depending on personal preference.

And yea, as a general rule steak should be rested for as long as it was cooked for.

Abby's got such a solid vibe. Would be amazing if she was on the west coast bombcast.

What's the Brad/Abby dynamic like? Team Brad!

I'm loving these vlogs Abby, and I'd be happy to watch them after the show if that helps you keep your sanity on the trip. There's so much stuff coming out of E3 I'm not going to be able to get through all of it this week anyway ><

Really enjoying these vlogs, like everyone else says health before vlogs. I'd be happy watching the rest after if that's what you need to do.

The vlogs have been great! Don't worry about not posting videos if you feel stressed about it, like everyone else has said before, your health is more important!

I wouldn't mind a several-days-in-one video posted when you're back in the office tbh.

Keep shooting footage and edit it all together later once you take some rest after E3 and return to the office, that's totally fine!

I thought he said less busier. That's how I first heard it, and going back I still hear it. Of course the closed captions are useless

Thanks for these, Abby - they've been so great so far! Like everyone is saying, take a break and take care of yourself first!

There is so much content coming out of these next few days, that it honestly might even be nice to have a break and see some of the behind the scenes after the fact once you're back in NYC.
