I foresee them wiping on there at the latest. It's a tough mission for the unprepared, and the new EW units will make sure they aren't.

To be honest, I'll be surprised if they even make it to and past the mission with the chryssalid attack. Not that it's hard necessarily, but if they're caught with their pants down, they're done for.

Edit: uuuughhh I'd forgotten how good some of the soundtrack in XCOM EU is.

I don't know much about Nick so I'm not surprised one way or another, though still disappointed. McElroys? I'd be flat out gobsmacked if they were. Especially given how well they respond to people giving them other points of view. Open minded people can also be assholes in private but between the Adventure Zone representation feedback and the generally more accepting and open tone they have taken on MBMBaM over the years, it would be a huge shock.

I mean, Griffin has that running vore joke, but he's pretty much stopped doing it after people told him it made them uncomfortable. I'd be devastated if it turned out they were shitty.

Can anyone explain the conceit behind exquisite corps? I was hoping beforehand that it was each of them controlling one character in an XCOM squad - not in a place i can watch the video right now.

In the spirit of this being a shitty day I'm going to give the humble monthly games I own/don't want away instead of selling them for sweet, sweet profit. If you want one then I want you to draw a piece of super rad MS paint art that's super positive and GB related. I'll pick my favourites after UPF ends because I think that's a little fairer than first come first serve. You can only pick one game per entry (and can only win one game per person!) so mention what game you want in your post.

Games you can choose from: Pillars of Eternity, NBA2K17, Killing Floor 2, One Piece Burning Blood, Overcooked, Nongunz.

Also as I love the game I'll throw in a copy of Fire Pro World but you need to make a GB wrestling related pic if you want that bad boy.

Post images in the thread and I'd suggest pming me a copy too just in case I miss it here.

Edit: If this makes no sense it's because I'm super ill.

Today is a full ship, but every episode from now on will be Vinny along with one of Abby, Dan, or Alex. They'll be picking up where the last one left off.

Ah, so just more of a normal playthrough. Alright that's kind of a bummer, but I'm sure it will still be plenty of fun.

They start a game (The first game being xcom) and everyone has to finish the game, but seperately. Abby is first so she will play the game, save at a certain point and pass the save off to someone else (Alex or Dan) and then that cycle continues until they complete the game. Vinny will be coaching/monitoring them while they play.

That's good. I thought it would be pass and play XCOM where they each control one character and they play together.

Dan's got the most experience.

Granted, that likely means that he has sent the most soldiers to their death.

Also it's been so many years since I played the first XCOM tutorial and it is still the wooooooooooorst.

Having listened to all of MBMBAM, TAZ, and Rose Buddies, I think the McElroys are still a safe follow.

-TAZ is pretty inclusive, has multiple LGBTQ characters, including Justin's character. Also, the best NPC happens to be trans.
-On The 'The Adventure Zone' Zone, they have frequently and sincerely discussed how they've fallen into the traps of certain race/sexuality tropes or stereotypes, and how devastated they've felt. They pivoted in a few ways to correct this.

- On MBMBAM, whenever the idea of people listening to their earliest episodes is brought up, they kind of universally go "oh god no", because it was a different era and they had a long way to go as people back then.

-On Rose Buddies, they have been forced to discuss some pretty horrific racism and sexual assault surrounding the Bachelor franchise this year, so much so that they said they felt almost complicit in hurting people by introducing their fans to the show only for it to suddenly get MEGA problematic. The agony in Griffin/Rachel is palpable.

Nick, Griffin, and Justin all work for Polygon and Nick/Griffin have podcasts and multiple Youtube series together. I don't think they had to have known about his behavior, but I understand why people bring them up.
