Giant Bomb |OT 15| I'm mad at god. I curse him. I denounce him and all he has created.....and then I saw Shenmue 3.

Listening to Ben talk about the new Rebel Galaxy and he's literally describing the first game. What a bummer, RB1 was such a mediocre game that I stopped playing a month in... and I can't remember another game this gen I didn't finish.

I haven't heard the pod yet, but that's the impression the RPS review game me, too.

For some reason I was expecting it to be a much more ambitious game alongside the move to 3D. But everything just makes it sound like Rebel Galaxy Remix or something.

There's a massive grind in the beginning of Rebel Galaxy that essentially makes you repeat the same gameplay loop a billion times over. It was torture.

I'm watching the Corridor Crew Youtube Channel they were talking on the Beastcast about VFX artists commenting on fx in movies... I love the content but man some of those guys are reallllly annoying
I watched a few videos and I couldn't tell if it was just intense earnestness on their part or just the typical amped up YouTuber shtick

I feel like Giant Bomb's content has really gone off a cliff edge in terms of quality lately, or maybe I'm just growing out of it.

Ben in particular is starting to really grate on me as 1) He can't really explain why he likes a game much more than "Game good because good" and 2) dredging up dead ass jokes and continually referring back to them i.e. Hand check.

Because giantbomb had never used old jokes before.

They certainly never keep repeating the same stories over over before Ben came on.

And they certainly were masters of taking about what makes a game good before.

I can't quote the post because I'll see the Judgment spoiler, Blitzrules240 , but this avatar change is unacceptable. At least merge Alex & Nathan's faces or something.

On a semi-related note, I'm now two episodes away from finishing the American version of Review. This is really, really good.

Is it the Dan Olson/FoldableHuman one from last night? It was a fantastic teardown if not a little boring because that game in particular is terribly unexciting.

But often, yeah? Ghosts is just worse in that regard. Weirdly the further away from real conflicts they usually get more sanitized but Ghosts in an exception. It's full on "Central/South America got together to invade America so the US built a Wall." And that's just the first couple level.

Joeku first of all, sorry for the abrupt avatar change, had to show Nathan Fielder some love after he got the new HBO deal. As for a mashup Tiamatsword22 was always the mastermind of those.

Secondly, Review is one of my favorite Comedy Central series and Andy Daly performed a master class in dark comedy.

Hey we're at the same spot!
This chapters been pretty good, probably gonna wrap it up tonight. There’s so much to do, so much to see.

THQ Nordic's acquisitions are always such a bummer. I wish actions had consequences, but that's not the world we live in.

I've always enjoyed Andy Daly in bit parts but never saw him lead anything until now and Review works because he's like the most affable man in the world. Season 1 was great but season 2 started with a bang and it hasn't slowed down a bit. It's weird this last season is only three episodes though. What's up with that? Was it like a favour from CC to let them close it out on their own terms?

Not gonna say that the idea of people being damned forever isn't disagreeable to me, but they knew what the fuck they were doing, barely any time has passed, and the people involved seemingly didn't get fired or even reprimanded. 8chan got shut down because it sponsored too many goddamn terrorists, for Christ's sake. It's like there's no consequences at all in the business world.

Mostly that one and world at War. The MW games are just like normal jingoistic xenophobia, the blops games dip in and out of that. AW was PMC bullshit (And a little ethnic cleansing commentary).

Watch more east stuff. I ignore Ben-led content lately and that helps too.

Made it to Chapter 8 in Judgment.

Still holding strong in my end of the year list.

Been catching up on UPF, Business Dave's Top 10 needs to be a weekly feature.

Weekly.

I don't mind the ignore change showing that someone's quoting an ignored person, because otherwise you can have a bunch of posts without any sort of context and at least now I know that they're responding to some dweeb.

I always forget their name but I know that the person handling GB Unarchived hangs out in here... ICYMI, they talk about the recent changes to the streams and the fact that the pre-shows are no longer kept on the server at the end of this week's Devcast.
Why would they do this to me
