Giant Bombcast 08-07-2012

This week we do battle with dodgy technology to bring you "Brad Shoemaker", the triumphant return and immediate retirement of Energy Drink Taste Tests, Iron Brigade for PC, the future of Persona, life after Mass Effect 3, and more! #crackinwise

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

Been waiting all night for this man, gotta settle my evening the proper way. Listening to a group of guys who I will probably never meet discuss something I am only lightly interested in with more vignettes and distractions than a fly on a turd.

Hmm, is the hashtag a joke or a new way of tracking audience numbers? Not objecting to it just curious.

"Not for city boys" reminds me of a sticker on a pickup I saw once. It was Calvin peeing on the words CITY BOYS. I couldn't help but wonder if it was almost some sort of goddamn artistic statement of inanity.

Currently on the "The Book of Unwritten Tales" conversation. 
Love the mention of Sam and Max hit the road. 
Anyway, The book of Unwritten Tales, is actually a pretty decent adventure game. It "borrows" a LOT of jokes from Monkey Island (you may not notice if you havent played it  alot but I can name 5 jokes off the top of my head they totally use and the exact same way). 
 
The amount of references the game makes to World Of Warcraft as well (sometimes directly) is staggering. 
 
Beyond those 2 things, the game is actually alright. It's pretty funny at times, does what it does well, feels a bit like a 90s adventure game (which is cool) and it's often self aware (which I like). 
 
The game is pretty cool. I think it's alright. I almost finished it so I may do a blog on it when I'm done.

I just realized that if someone just started listening to the Bombcast with this episode, they would be confused as hell.

I like the Bombcast a million times more when they talk about dumb, random shit. Jeff's room mate and housing stories are priceless. Video games can wait.

Jeff's stories about his old apartment are BAD ASS.

If only we knew about how he got that name plaque from the former mayor of Petaluma...

I know Ryan had to work some data recovery magic to get this to work, so I'm glad to have it at all this week, but there's stuff missing at around 1:53:30. They go from talking about the ME3 ending, then the audio skips, and suddenly they're talking about Sim City.

Edit: Also, duck sized horses question again? =(

I literally couldn't catch my breath, I was laughing so hard at Vinny's Gamefly discussion. Especially the nonchalance of Ryan's "You are history's greatest monster."

Was there a cut when they were talking about Mass Effect 3? Suddenly they're talking about Sim City 3.
