The Giant Beastcast: Episode 81

We get ready to depart San Francisco, but not before we talk about a whole host of Nintendo news, China caring about loot boxes, the best time to play Final Fantasy XV, and of course, what we wear to bed.

The Giant Bomb East team gathers to talk about the week in video games, their lives, and basically anything that interests them. All from New York City!

NOTHING, you wear nothing to bed(well, except for underwear)! It's your one chance to be naked for a while and you're going to blow it?

Bedtimes means no clothes. Nothing at all. Though, I do live in Southern California, so we don't deal with below 40 degree weather.

I've got a purplish mattress here in the US. I think the white thing is just a marketing way to say "Look this mattress is brand new! Nobody's filthy ick is on it, don't you see how whiiiite it is?"

FFXV certainly is missing a lot of context near the beginning of the game that is in Kingsglaive and Brotherhood, but the problems don't just end there. I have to believe they also mean the second half of the game as well because the story in this game is barely there and what's there is a complete mess.

If the FFXV team were actually putting some soft dates on the upgrades, I'd consider holding-off. As it stands, the game has enough issues that I can't see putting it aside for what could very well be negligible improvements to the story, more so knowing they're also working on paid DLC that will need to get released. Not that I'm in a rush to finish the game, but I also don't want to find myself just starting a proper playthrough around this time next year.

We should have a Patreon for one year where the Giant Bomb San Francisco lives in a four bedroom apartment/home. - "The Not-Real World "

They really just keep their own places but they live and work M-F in the apartment, and film a few small segments. With four bedrooms they could easily house four couples...and a baby or two in there. Plenty of rooms for staff and spouses.

We'd only need to raised $16,500 for apartment, some utilities, and a Putzfrauen.

They did NOT change the ending to Mass Effect 3. They added some stuff, but the basic problems with that story remain. Though, they were certainly not in a position where they needed to due to player dissatisfaction. The ME3 Ending is stuff god-awful tripe written by a committee of robots.

Haha. Talking about the FFXV patch, Drew's low key comment, "Put some more cylinders in that car..." made me laugh the most for some reason.

Still waiting for the Mass Effect 1-3 PC DLC to go on sale. To buy all that stuff at full price is nonsensical.

So having never played bully I would love to play it on my phone but um isn't the screen going to be waaay to small? I mean I would love to download some of the older FF games or the first KOTOR game but it seems like the screen would be to small for that.

Is this not an issue? Also I would love to find a good controller as trying to play evoland on my phone was frustrating but then the phone is even farther away from me which seems like it would make the screen size even worse....I don't know.

I wasn't sure what I was going to wear when I finally left my apartment this afternoon, but now I know!

@monkeyking1969:Where are you getting your $16,500 figure? That $15K rent listed is monthly, meaning an entire year would be $180,000.

But the question shouldn't be when "was the last time you made a decent ham", it should be when was the last time you made a fucking good one!

I would be okay with hearing Drew sing the whole FF6 soundtrack.

...No, YOU'RE weird.
