it took me way too long to realize the laughing was because of something happening way off screen and nobody was reacting to what they were saying

The story Mike Bilder (Jackbox guy between Boyes/Lang, former Midway) told about JV was goddamn hilarious though. Also Drake calling Boyes' giant head "an NBA Jam cheat code". :lol

Weird mix of guests for each night but the standouts to me were Phil Spencer, Respawn guys, Mark MacD talking VR/Teris, and most of Night 3. Sean Krankel talking about his experience making the 50 Cent games was :rofl

Quit listening to the bombcast for a few months and I’ve turned it off after an hour or so of the last two after getting bored of the Moba / Battle Royale Report Show. I’ve never longed for Brad to read boring industry news more.

They've hired a couple kids. Austin ran off to make his own thing, as did Patrick. There's Abbey, and Dan now, sorta? They never went super ham on jrpg stuff anyways, just got really into Persona for some reason that one time.

Made to day 3 of Giant Bomb GOTY 2018. I don't think this format of talking about games before actual categories really worked.

“Someone told Hideo Kojima about Dan Ryckert not understanding these games have politics in them, and he is now treating his audience like they are the dumbest motherfuckers alive.”

Nah they’ve been really pushing that shit all year. Giant Bomb is looking pretty dire right now, their growth is pretty bad and I don’t see them pulling in much more of an audience with these shitty new hires from the last couple of years effectively acting as dead weight. Nobody on staff has been relevant for years and let’s plays for boomers is a pretty niche genre. Oh yeah also they’re really lazy and bad at their jobs.

jan is the best staff member on the site not named jeff and he's new :maf (dan doesn't count since he's leaving)

also i don't mind the podcast format change but the solo videos in lieu of the group stuff is a real bummer. would honestly take a couple less pods to get more group videos. however jeff spending 2.5 hours talking about wwe faces was pretty good.

Yeah, they said something about this on a Beastcast. They used to go over to California for two weeks in prior years, which was nuts to me. Now it's just one, which obviously leaves less time to do group stuff.

Speaking seriously, if they really only had a week in SF to do the GOTY talk, I don't know how you can spend 3 days speaking about the release schedule and cut even further down on the categories. IMO, cutting categories for worst game, most disappointing, or Please Stop for 3 days of what is basically a large bombcast isn't what I'm looking for in GOTY talk.

The segment where everyone collectively complains about Three Houses being too easy despite Ben having selected Easy as his difficulty and no one selecting Hard made me want to cancel my premium sub.

No permadeath is not the solution to making the game more difficult that would be the difficulty option called “Hard”. Permadeath is a grognard option for grognards.
