Thursday Night Throwdown

Thursday Night Throwdown: 11/08/12

Drew Scanlon leads the charge as we venture deep into Halo 4's multiplayer only to encounter more Ghost Problems.

It's Thursday night and it's time for you to go up against us in a weekly throwdown of decidedly humble proportions.

This was an awesome TNT through and through.  I usually get bored watching FPS's on these things but this was excellent.  Possibly due to collusion.

Wished they did the whole thing with custom game modes, was trying to get Patrick to tell Drew the whole time, all it took was a PM to Jeff. 300% speed with big jumps and only Gravity Hammers would of been cool on a big ass map.

I actually like the look of Halo 4's multiplayer, I wasn't going to get it until I watched this. IMO it changed in a positive way

Holy fuck Drew is ACTUALLY good at this game, in stark contrast to most of the GB staff with a lot of games...

They should do a custom game type only Halo 4 TNT with of BLOPS2, because Blops2 will get boring after an hour.

Dshban (dishban) is a co-host from the Smart Wrestling Fan Podcast. It's a long time running (and amazing) podcast that I listen to weekly. If you're a wrestling fan, you should be listening to this already.

Anyway, it was so weird seeing the WWE13 quick look with Ghost Problems , then hearing the SWF podcast where Dshban said he made a story called "Ghost Problems." My two worlds collided. Coincidentally, Dshban is a big Giantbomb fan, so no wonder he used Time Rock in the sequel.

I'm not sure he was trying to spell out the map name in that way...just CS denoting that he was talking about counter strike.

I find it interesting that Drew uses the DMR almost exclusively in regular matches. It seems like the BR would go better with his lone wolf, close to mid range play style.

Imagine how weird I felt waking up after making a dumb little joke story a few days before and having it be the thumbnail of a Quick Look.

The framerate chugging in multiplayer is goddamn ridiculous. That should be one of the highest priorities, especially for a game like this.

Well, other maps have the cs_ prefix (cs_office / cs_assault) so I'm guessing he got it confused with one of those. It's a grave error and he needs to be reprimanded for it.

what does the podcast cover? i don't watch WWE/TNA/ROH anymore but i stopped watching it religiously a couple of years ago. still have a heap of wrestling knowledge, though and i always hear good things about wrestling podcasts done right.

grifball is made by the rooster teeth guys, which make the web series Red vs Blue(which is a halo machinima that has animation too) and Grif is a character on that show and he is wearing yellow armor so that's why when you're holding the ball the armor turns yellow and also that's why it's called grifball.

Just so ppl know.

Only way I've liked Halo 4 online so far was in Slayer Pro with none of the unbalanced powers and stuff.

I'm not really interested in Halo so I thought this was going to be one of the "less entertaining" TNT's. Always good to be proven wrong.

Absolutely great.
