Giant Bombcast 07/28/2015

We console our sadness about the broken Street Fighter V beta by, um, talking a lot about Street Fighter, along with the new King's Quest, the end of Ouya, way more Rocket League, super healthy living, super unhealthy clicking, and the war of humans against pets.

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

YES.

A Lunchcast to go with my walk over to Subway for a terrible sandwich. Perfect timing. :D

Feedback for GB dudes: earlycasts are bestcasts. Ensures I've got it for at least part half of the day's commute! damn the other timezones!

It's up early again. It's like it's a slow period for video games or something.

Doesn't Dan selfie and tweet at corporate sponsors asking for retweets all the time? I feel like people who get enraged at selfie-takers are more enraged at themselves tbh

He rarely (never?) uploads selfies and I'm not sure what tweeting at corporate sponsors has to do with anything. Also, he never asks for retweets, he just wants fast food places to follow him :P

Getting mad about selfies is one of the things that is way dumber than taking selfies.

Does it count as a selfie is you are with another person? How else are you supposed to get a picture of you and your significant other when you are traveling and don't trust strangers with your expensive pocket computer?

By just not doing at all? It's a crazy concept to just store memories in your head, I know.

Believe it or not, at some point your memories may fade and you may take joy in seeing pictures of yourself and your significant other when you were younger. Not to mention other members of your current and future family may get a kick out of them as well. I feel like you are making an argument against photos...

Capcom were very clear that it was to be a network code test? Would they have had to state things could have crashed and burned also and that it actually was a beta? We don't have to preorder to enter the beta in the rest of the world, we get it from looking at account flags and whatever in signup. To me it was Thursday Friday Saturday, to so many people including you guys it sounds like it was the last days of mankind before the great disaster struck, from expecting the beta to not be an actual beta.

The situation does suck but still.

The actual reason that ranked mode in Rocket League is way better than casual is because there's no bots. The bots are stupidly good and way better than most of players. Pretty much everytime I've played with bots, they end up being the MVP and scoring some ridiculous amount of goals. It really ruins the game if even one person quits.

I, too, am sad about Street Fighter. Although in a way I'm relieved because it means I have more time to play Rocket League - which, given my intense love of Street Fighter, only serves as a testament to how deep in the Rocket League hole I am right now.

I loved SFV, but maybe I got to play more than most people? Goddamn the game was fun and good breath of fresh air from SF4. Oh and the game, like pretty much all other 2D fighting games, is almost unplayable without an arcade stick.

Not at all. I don't have a problem at all with people that take a picture with a significant other or friends/family/etc. When I think "selfie," I think of one person taking a picture of themselves to post on Facebook or Instagram or whatever to show off a new haircut or for some other vain purpose. I totally understand if it's something like a couple going on a hike and taking a picture of themselves in front of something or whatever.

Not that I'm complaining, but didn't you kinda make a whole video to post on Giantbomb the last time you got a new haircut?

I think selfies are like ComicSans. There's nothing specifically wrong with them, they've just been waaay over used and used badly.

Also if Vinnie shaving people's heads was a premium video feature, I'd probably watch it.
