The first 10 minutes of episode 150 of the P4 ER are worth watching again, 10 years later. Vinny makes a mutual JO joke, Jeff makes a eating jizz of a cookie joke, and we get the traditional Vinny “zip!” line when their Charlie avatar is about to have sex with their favorite teenage girl character on Christmas Eve.

That Gears talk on the bombcast was maddening. Jeff was so exaggerating how much time it takes to get from one point to the next on the skiff. It literally takes less than minute to get to any mission.

Blowing it so much out of proportion to the point that brad is saying yeah I think I won’t even play the the campaign.

Like what? This is the best Gears campaign in 10 years.

borderlands was never funny and every quote coming from bl3 sounds indistinguishable from every other shitty game in that series

Pretty baffling. It's also such a minor aspect of the game, no idea why he concentrates so much on it.
And Brad just blindly agreeing... it's nothing new sadly.

Is a Shenmue 2 ER ever happening? I'm probably never going to play those games myself and want to see what they're like. 3 seems like it's going to be prime Vinny material. I would by far take a Shenmue series over Burgle My Banana.

oh shit oh fuck an alan wake expansion would mean that i need to buy control
I was going to buy it anyway once it was a bit better performance-wise. Not sure I trust my 1060 6gb to perform well enough atm.

In regards to Control and Alan Wake, Remedy bought the IP back a few months ago right? I wonder how differently all of the Easter Eggs/Expansion would be if they never bought it from Microsoft.

I hope robotrock is ok and wish him good luck. Quitting different social platforms is often on my mind, currently taking a break from actively using Twitter. Maybe it's a similar thing.

... I guess I should go and actually finish Alan Wake while I’m waiting for Control to become affordable.

Hot dang. My employer gave me 5 straight days off! Plenty of time to catch up on GB content, will watch Get On My Level and Burgle My Bananas and play more Fire Emblem.

I've thought about quitting this forum numerous times, but unfortunately it's how I stay up to date with a lot of things. I can't help but feel like I would miss out on a lot, but that's probably just some bias at play. The internet can be incredibly addictive and mind consuming.

Ah man robotrock requested a user ban? Dang. He was a good dude and was fun to discuss topics with within this thread. Best of luck to him.

I don't know Mr Rock very well, but I wish him the best all the same. American Vandal was a good show. RIP

Any Siege-heads stoked for Ember Rise today? I'm excited to use the grappling hook once to immediately get in the point, get mowed down, and never play Amaru again.

I really need more self-Control (‘cause my inability to resist the temptation to go into Control threads just got me spoiled on some stuff that should’ve been tagged yaaay.)

Really don't understand Jeff's complaints about Gears 5.

He says the open world is dull and empty.
but also says it disrupts the flow and pacing of the game.


I just beat Act 3 and really enjoyed my time in the open world segments.
This side missions are short and enjoyable. The traversal was fun.
MORE open world would have maybe interrupted the pacing. But Gears can so often be GO GO GO, that I liked spending 5 minutes on a skiff between missions.

always excited for new operators. But, right now im not sure i am in love with either of them. But should shake up the casual meta for me nicely! lol
