Giant Bombcast 06/24/2014

Drew and Jeff are joined by a pair of guests as we discuss table flipping arcade games, the mysterious appearance of Vince, EA's UFC, Primal Rage 2, floppy disk versions of Strider, and "football."

The Giant Bombcast is the world's most beloved video game podcast, and now it's available in video form.

Damn it @alexisg we need HIGHER framerates! Do not be that guy who doesn't want 60fps just because of how it looks.

Higher = better.

Solo Jeff ads are definitely... flat. Also, I doubt many people get the premium versions of the bombcast.

Look out boys, it's the Game Cop!

Also I always enjoy some Alexis chatter, so good to have him about.

Of course not! This week's wasn't as exciting as it was just Jeff, but the two-man bits are well worth their time, even if they are an advert.

@drewbert

@jeff

The cheapest 1080p60 capturing device of the kind that uses the computer for crunching so that the incoming video isn't lagged by several seconds costs around 21,000 yen ($200 US) and is called the MonsterX U3.0R, a USB3 box that requires certain top notch USB3 chipsets (Intel, Renesas/NEC).

The cheapest internal PCIe card that gives 1080p60 of this lagless kind is the 512n1 that goes for about 33,000 yen ($320 US), and that one can also be picky and choosy. These two devices let you record at rates that require up to 900 gigabytes for an hour of footage (requires SSDs in RAID).

Like everything else good in the world, you get these two from Japan exclusively, and there is no Mac support.

And my experiments in video capturing think that 4mbps for 720p60 is 100% fine but 8mbps is stretching it for 1080p30 if the game is moving a lot of pixels like a racer, so 1080p60 would be a logistical pain.
