I like this setup, everyone trying to figure out how to play the game while Jeff skates circles around them.

They should play that meat bag mode in Skate 2?

As someone who spend probably 1000+ hours across the first four Tony Hawk games, it took way to long to find my groove again. Combos are no joke, but once you get the hang of them, you can pretty consistently get over a million with one. It just takes a bit to get there, less of a gradual thing, and more of, suddenly it all just clicks.

This was so fun to watch. Great seeing them figure it out as they went.

Awesome to see this game getting some more love on the site! Loving this game, also last night on PC got a top 100 global score on Skate Heaven 8) <- that's a cool guy wearing sunglasses since you can tell I very obviously wasted a lot of my youth on this game.

So this is Abby's new office space? I only listen to the Beastcast MP3s so I hadn't seen it yet. It looks seriously awesome. I hope she feels great there.

  1. Abby's new office space is incredible, that chalkboard drawn fireplace is the best.
  2. Roasting Jan over Smart House is pretty hilarious (no kinkshame).
  3. This was such a great stream.

Yah haha it's this amazing contrast of Abby having this entire office to herself and Jan seemingly streaming from a broom closet in his tiny kitchen.

I like the challenge of actually have to revert/manual this time around, adds another layer of excitement when I pull shit off. Trying to keep up with Jeff is another challenge entirely, he is a madman.

@humanity: How did Abby manage to get GB to pay for an office space when the other guys are stuck in their tiny apartments? Is it just a case they didn't complain?

@philipduck: She is probably paying for it out of her own pocket or maybe the company provides an allowance for this sort of thing.

The way people are working remotely right now is somewhat unnatural because you have stationary office workers being suddenly tasked with working from home. Typically when a big company hires you as a remote employee there is a stipulation about costs covered for all the extra electricity you are burning every day. I've been working remotely since March which means I now have my computer on for 8 hours straight on top of all the other usage and this has significantly increased the amount of money I pay for electricity usage, but my company isn't reimbursing that. Renting out office space would probably be a somewhat cheaper alternative than reimbursing my bills, depending on the lease of such a place. In my situation it's impossible since I deal with highly sensitive client materials anyway.

The only thing I would maybe take issue with here is that the reason we are all working from home is to minimize human to human contact as well as to shield you from potentially getting infected. Travelling to and from a rented office, depending on how far it is, how many doors you have to open, doorknobs you have to touch, people you need to interact with to get in or pass on your way to the office, on top of the enclosed shared space with people that could potentially be sick and you don't know about - all of that seems to kind of contradict the point of working from home.

@humanity: Yeah agree with what you've said, is an odd one. I've also been working from home since March but fortunately my employer is contributing towards my electricity and necessary equipment to work from home.

If i was Ben/Jan sat with no office space and seeing Abby travelling to and from an office I'd be pretty disappointed i wasn't able to do the same.

@philipduck: Some people might just not want to go to an office in our current pandemic climate. I don't enjoy working from home very much, there are a lot of issues on top of the extra bills, but I definitely do not want to go to the office and work in that enclosed space knowing how many people still don't treat this with any degree of seriousness.

I went to Hooters when I went to E3 in 2009, just because a) From Australia and b) the people I was there with insisted. It was not a horny experience. I ended up having a chat with the serving staff about whether they enjoyed working there and if it was worth it, and invariably they said no.

Also, they thought we were from England. So we said we were from Australia and they introduced us to another table of Australians. Who turned out to be from England. SIgh.

Deep fried pickles were damn nice though.

@philipduck: You're really upset about Abby getting a studio, huh? It's not something that you need to be concerned with, and projecting your concerns on to Ben and Jan is really weird!
