@nakirendral: I'm premium too but I like the little bit of extra banter, even if it is an ad. :)

Between Xcom 2 & Battlefront 2 the bombers have done a grape jorb putting over games that stumbled out of the block but hit their stride a year later to become awesome

I don't have that much time in the week so I only listen to one podcast - this one. I even stopped listening to the Bombcast in favor of the BEAST cast.

Why would I listen to any other when this is the best podcast in the known universe?

Damn you, Carravella

I enjoy that people are annoyed by @vinny giving an on-going update to the games he's been playing.

I haven't listened to the rest yet but I gotta respond. If you built a big iron sculpture it might physically be able to last but someone is definitely going to sell it for scrap somewhere along the way.

In my city growing up there was a problem where people were stealing crappy cars and driving them straight to the scrap yard to get like $50.

If if you built built a big rock monument someone would probably just steal it and make kitchen counter tops out of it.

Boooo! had to look up that super bowl jump, all i found was articles telling me how it was an illusion and the jump was pre recorded. Podcast made it sound cool.

From Eugene to Jamie, the CBS Cinematic Universe is really expanding!

Also #TeamVinny just because I never want to silence Vinny about anything.

My easy guide to finding the GIFs you want in no time flat: Go to Twitter, go to the GIF button on the reply tab, type in 3 most important words of GIF your looking for. "lady gaga jump"

Boom, GIF found in 10 seconds. @vinny

Works every time.

Am on board for more X-Com 2 talk from Vinny... So take that Jeff...

Anywho, thinking about the X-Com 3 talk from last week (they were just thinking about what it would be, not that there any info out about it), and I think that the next X-Com will be kind of like a Doom X-Com that plays fairly similar to the last two (like 2 or 3 new systems, but no major changes). In the sense it will be against a cosmic horror like force. My reasoning for this (and why I disagree with the guesses that it will be an invasion focus game) is 1) They haven't done invasion/attack system before. And to do those, would require a totally different flow to the game. You need to be able to set borders, take areas, etc (if you don't have that stuff, you aren't going to feel like you are winning a war, as much as choosing which areas to mine for resources). And that isn't at all like what they have done before. And 2) I think they are doing a Good, Bad, and Ugly flow to the series. The first X-Com was good (we win), the second was Bad (we had lost), so the third will be Ugly (cosmic horror-ish).

Is that Bellas Podcast producer Dan Ryckert?

For real tho I'm sure the other ones are a blast to work on but that would sap my soul.

@matiaz_tapia: His xcom 2 playdate was really great. I feel like he could be a really successful youtuber as his running commentary while playing is fantastic.
