You're damned right I was blogging away. Blogging away and eating those little chicken skewers. God, those were good.

Rich, nice Ron Burgundy impression. "Who the hell put a question mark at the end of year?"

Speed Tree interview was obviously the best part but the hamster ball was good too though.

I cannot express in words how much I love these on location videos you guys do.
The coveted SpeedTree interview was probably the highlight, but it was damn close. Jeff and Ryan constantly competing with one another in deadpan humor is always a barrel of laughs.

I could watch GDC coverage all day. I need more!

I think that is the best video coverage of GDC on any site. Ever. Only Giant Bomb would dive deep into the trenches to get the latest news on speed treeing and ball running. Thank you, GB!

Playing video games with a cereal box is the future! The next time I have $10,000 I'm definitely going to invest it into fast trees. Coming soon is GiantBall.com lol. School would've been much better with an Automatic desk LOL. Rich Gallup!!!!!!!!!

So, all this time I wondered what exactly SpeedTree is and apparently it is literally trees made fast.
