Funny enough i stopped listening to these deliberations after 2 hours of Brad stomping his feet for Skyrim in 2011.
I choose to believe Brad singlehandedly refusing to concede Skyrim's GOTY to Saints Row The Third (which he hadn't played, and everyone who had listed first) is what eventually killed Ryan.

The science is still out on whether or not Brad gave that to him while they worked at GameSpot imo.

Catching up on pods and Brad really captures my thoughts well on RDR2 in the best moments section. A lot of the game feels so impactful because Rockstar actually felt earnest with the story. Some of those chapter 6 stranger missions were just really strong stories without any of the usual Rockstar snark or "gotcha" moments.

Also that D'Angelo song :lawd

Dan playing up his ignorance or trying too hard to play a heel can be pretty obnoxious but holy shit, his derail about triangles this week and everybody else not having it was my favorite thing that's come out of the Beastcast in a while.

Beastcast Ep. 205 1:30:00 - 1:50:00 roughly, There is no clip on youtube.

 I was just annoyed that the beastcast went from goofy fun time when Dan is there to how unions will solve everything to combat game dev sweatshops in Bangladesh San Francisco.
I thought it was boring and a level of discourse that was completely bereft of anything constructive. Just empty platitudes and how the consumer can cope with the immense struggle of buying video games.

I think I'm done with the normal podcast. Just not enjoying it at all anymore, especially bens voice and general shitty points is just a no no.

Beastcast is still pretty decent. Especially enjoying Vinny upsetting Jeff Bakalar whenever he can. Abby can be a bit of a dumb cunt at times, and Alex can be such an emo window licker, but overall it doesn't annoy me as much as almost everyone on the normal podcast, only Jeff is worth listening to there

The only one who's starting to bother me is Brad. He always doubts everyone's words, as if every piece of information has to be vetted by him personally. He's probably always done this, but it sticks out to me now.

Beastcast >>> Bombcast though, definitely.

I‘d just love to see how the average work day at Giant Bomb looks like. Especially out west, since it is pretty astonishing that they have this fancy setup and produce as little content as they do. Prepping for the Podcast or UPF can‘t be what they do, or these shows would be better.

i remember vinny posted about it on gaf before...there was a lot of meetings and a lot of dumb little tasks cause they are the only staff.
https://www.neogaf.com/threads/giant-bomb-dot-com-official-thread-12-anime-waluigi-discussion-webzone.981488/post-153938525

 i think they've said before that brad is the e3 schedule guy and alex does the guest stuff for the e3 shows so those two are probably working that stuff out most of the time right now.

I think they do a bunch of side stuff for CBS too. IIRC, the one setup for something that Vinny and Drew built was so much better that they had it annexed by higher ups and had to rebuild parts of it for just themselves.

I know I've seen Jeff mention that Jason has been working elsewhere when he does some of the videos by himself.

And like Vinny mentions there they do a lot of stuff that's handled by other staff (lots of other staff) in most production themselves. And they always have because they were never in that corporate environment as internet video took off really.

Okay, I guess that covers most of them. I know that Rorie does support stuff and he is incredibly fast and friendly.
However, you cannot tell me that Brad doesn‘t just sleep 16 hours a day.

As part of my "project" where I have been sourcing some stuff (in this case "rumors" regarding the Dreamcast) within old gaming journalism, I took a special interest in Battle Arena Toshinden 3, and to date I have seen very little to no comment in articles on the game regarding Ten Count. It increasing seems as if it took until the establishment of independent gaming journalism juggernaut Giant Bomb to bring this character to his scientifically accurate position within the fighting game world. Which raises the always important first tip at the Jeff Gerstmann School of Gaming Journalism: follow the money.

Who was paying off late 1990's gaming journalists, including GameFan, to cover up the existence of Ten Count? Namco? Capcom? NINTENDO? Unfortunately all gaming journalists from that era except Andy "The Game Dandy" McNamara are dead and he has had Alzheimers since he turned 70 in ~2007 so we will probably never get an answer to this.

Jeff is becoming such a pain in the ass to listen to. Ben is just cringe city. Jan is the only good member on the Bombcast.

Beastcast is shit too. Bakalar is the only good thing on there.

Abby is starting to grind my gears. She is an absolute dolt and yet can’t stop giving her opinion and acts like an expert on every issue, even though she has absolutely no clue.

At least Dan owns it.

Dan just never developed that whole thing where people pretend to know more than they let on rather than admit they have no clue and/or are just repeating what they've heard offhand somewhere. His brain is designed for things he needs to know like Mario Party strategies or Taco Bell menu items. So he's totally willing to believe anything JeffDad and VinnyDad tell him, because why not? He hasn't heard otherwise and it sounds good enough!

That's why he's a national treasure. We cannot allow a Dan Ryckert gap.

Vinny hired Abby to help with production. She has no editorial experience (pretty sure), but is expected (and prompted) to voice her opinions alongside everybody else. Results are within expected parameters. :B

That said: Substantively, I don't mind her input more than all the other production staff's, past and present. It's form where she's completely lacking and occasionally grating. She either can't or doesn't care to learn to articulate herself well.

And she's surrounded by doormats who don't want or feel unable to criticise and/or directly instruct anybody. :doge

Mary Kish is one video game person I will admit being oddly attracted to. And I'm not really sure why.

Sadly, I can't get over the way she puts her hand on the bottom of the bottle when she drinks. So it would never work between us. Don't @ me, Mary.
