I missed Hitsmas this year, but this'll do. Thanks for the good times in 2019 Giant Bomb! It seems like we all have 2020 vision now...

@conceited: You're really missing out on those short personal vids they made, then.

Hey all! Not an excuse but an explanation, with a shorter week I was in rush for production shtuff so the audio unfortunately suffered from that. That compiled with a lot of moving parts (missing files, corrupted audio, etc.), I wanted to try and salvage what we had.

I hope y'all enjoy the Winter Games despite the audio issues.

I object to this video being uploaded on Friday instead of on Christmas day. Just... botched execution.

So is it supposed to be a bit that for these GOTY videos, everybody is clearly mic'd up, but nobody's microphone works?

edit: Ah, just saw Jan's comment.

I don't know any video producer who hasn't lost something important and had to cobble it together for a deadline, so I get it.

Such a shame the audio on this and the fued one have both been awful, absolutely love the videos with everyone in!

EDIT: actually once the games start playing it's not that noticeable in this one, just the intro threw me off. Great video, love the goty group stuff

@janman: Its always great to know the behind the scenes stuff even though i know nothing about producting. Just like why i listen to the dev cast despite knowing nothing about deving(?).

edit: RIP in peace Brad. He left us too soon. Mini-games will eventually kill us all. Also, great ending after the terrible slappers only. Amazing moment for Abby.

@lebdrift: It was for a couple minutes at the start. If you are such a hot shot producer, why didn't you apply for Jan's job?

Great video everyone. I hope to be as happy about anything one day as Abby was about winning.

Abby's moment of pure elation at figuring out the 20 questions answer was hilarious.

I did that typing test and holy hell has my typing speed slowed down since I'm not on IRC every single night for the last 15 years!

76WP/M with 95% accuracy, I used to be well over 100!
