Giant Bombcast 508: Xfinity Heavy Industries

Nov. 21st 2017

Loot boxes keep rearing their randomized heads all through this podcast, but we also manage to chat at length about our GOTY cram lists, Battle Chef Brigade, the perilous fate of the Trap Trebek, baby shampoo taste tests, and definitely not what the best Metal Gear Solid is.

Having an additional producer's already paying dividends.

The government is removing net neutrality regulation, what a shitfest that will be.

In other news, the government is looking into regulating video games. What a shitfest that will be.

1) Shout out to Jan!

2) I hope they video record GOTY talks as a series of premium podcasts. I NEED that in my life during the month of December: because audio only captures so much tension. I need to see the furtive glances and the knife fights during this most cutthroat of seasons!!!

@nameredacted: They did video podcasts last year for GOTY (free for all too, I believe) so I'm sure they'll do it again.

I would watch you guys doing an analytical game playing stream.

Even if its you running into boundaries and checking textures.

Platinum trophies are way more impressive than gamer score which could be boosted playing easy games.

I notice the same. Video keeps pausing every 20-30 seconds. No skip in audio just video glitching.

Seeing Jason just sitting down doing nothing makes me think something is going to go wrong. Like waking up in a plane and seeing the pilot sitting next to you.

Great podcast this week, and I'm sad we have to wait so long for all the fun GOTY stuff ahead.

I have one small thing extra to note about the NieR fishing and Justin McElroy discussion towards the end of the podcast. Yes, I agree that the ridiculously easy fishing minigame in Automata is a Yoko Taro joke reaction to the criticism of the original NieR's fishing. I also am convinced that ending K is a completely related Yoko Taro joke. This is the one where Jackass gives you a Mackerel to eat as an experiment and warns you that if you eat it you might die. Of course, eating it gives you ending K. Mackerel... McElroy.

@dryker: I get a similar issue when streaming any giantbomb video while playing a game on my computer. Video pauses and loads about every three seconds in a consistent pattern. Have not experienced this with any other streaming service (youtube, netflix, hulu).

Surprised and disappointed that no one intends to play Doki Doki Literature Club before GotY. I think that's a front runner for best story.

For me it's not really "Best Story" in its content, but it's more like Her Story in that it deserves some kind of "Best Use of Video Games to Convey a Story That You Couldn't Tell In The Same Way In a Different Medium" award.

Then again, Luftrausers won Best Music for essentially rearrangements of a single track, so all things are possible.

If the thing I accidentally spoiled my self on plays out how I think it might (it was about four words out of context so it might not; playing today or tomorrow), it could certainly be my Best Moment of the Year. It sounds _wild_.
