As a person who didn't start following the community threads until May this year, I hope we continue the tradition of talking about content drought and that we continue/create a tradition of discussing Waypoint twitter/content in these GB threads in the year to come.

I'm curious what the numbers would look like if you cut video podcasts and best-ofs. They had to have recorded at least a few days worth of podcasts since they started taping them.

Also, premium is the actual issue when it comes to content.

god damn it you have me talking about content when I could be playing the game of the year

Jeff is gameplay and mechanics driven, for the most part. If a game that's 80% style and 20% substance has a style he doesn't like, of course he's going to hate it.

Right, right. I don't know why I didn't make that connection.

That's how Syndicate ended up on the GoTY list that year, which was the right move because that game was awesome

And what is there also requires a bit of piecing together (if you're hunting for the full story) which is also not great if you already don't care enough about the style.

It was on nearly every GOTY contributor list so it's not just GB. I personally loved it.

Something I always thought could work. At the very least I think a level based Skate game ala classic THPS would be cool. Some of my best Skate memories are from the demos and their limited areas and just mastering that space.


Do I think EA could make one without fucking it up? Hmmmmm.

I was going through some old videos on Youtube, then I skipped through Son'y Gamescom coneference in 2013.

While he revealed the date, 15th November in NA, Vinny said, so this is a week earlier then Xbox One, right?

And how fast Jeff and Brad said they haven't revealed that yet. Lol, good job guys on keeping it cool.

Yay new thread. Looking forward to catching up with Brad's stream this week (minus DOTA parts)

Edit; Finished this year's Beastcast special. There were some hilarious moments in there but the structure of the game felt a bit too loose in spots, and then suddenly it was over. The 40 floors bit was amazing, though.

The Rocket League Rubber Match just made it plainer than ever how much the site misses Austin.

From across the country, while playing and intense multiplayer game, his interactions with Brad, Jeff and Dan were more interesting and funny than they had any right to be.

It goes without saying that Austin, Vinny and Alex did incredible work together and GBeast has been missing him, but goddamn if it hasn't had wider effects than that.

Obviously we all hope the best for whatever #NewHires happen, but lordy do they have some big shoes to fill.

I finally starting playing Invisible Inc on PS Plus, I think Austin was right about this game wow.

I know it got #10 that year due to the strength of Austin's debate skills, but was it nominated for best style as well? This game looks goooooooood

Hitman looks so much sharper on the Pro (and I assume the PC too)


I should buy the PC version now I got the rig to handle it but I am not sure I want to do the grind again to re-unlock everything + not have my elusive target suits.


Actually maybe replaying all of Hitman wouldnt be so bad...

Astroneer looks cool but after playing a few hours of it, there's not much there. Unless there's a ton of stuff to be added or that hasn't been discovered, it really only takes a few hours to kind of build just about everything there is to build.

I got about 10 hours out of it. For the price, it's worth it.

I am debating starting a new playthrough of Stardew Valley... That game is so good.

The biggest issue with Skate 3 was you were given smaller selections of levels instead of a massive sprawling world to find spots in.

Is there a way to watch any more than 4 hours of Brad's stream?

I only see 4 hours from this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0P_n4FcFXl0.

I haven't watched any of it. Is it worth watching?

I dunno, I thought the level design was just not as good as Skate 2's, and that didn't really have anything to do with how connected the areas were.

Yeah it doesn't feel as nicely classic three-act as fiasco did (despite literally having three acts)

I like Dan, but man... Him saying "none of us experienced it so we shouldn't care about it." In regards to Hitman always online connection breaking the single player when it went down, is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard him say. That's like saying the PC port is borked, but I played on PS4 so whatever...

I like Dan a lot, but come on dude... Guess it makes since for someone that's a ball chaser in Rocket League ;)

I still like you Dan

One of these days I'll buy Stardew Valley. I loved the original Harvest Moon and HM64 but was incredibly disappointed by the GCN game.
