It's just placeholder text for the time being. They did however said that Vinny would probably be out for around one more week and that their video production should speed up again next week, so it's certainly a possibility.

Vinny's return coinciding with the release of The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition?

... I'd believe it.

Lmao. Just what I was thinking.

Vinny or not, hope they do something for the enhanced edition next week. Quick look would be sweet.

He's probably ready ro come back, changing dirty diapers must surely lose its appeal after a week.

Tricky was real keen on playing it on the 360 so I'd say there's a good chance.

Ok, I am new to the whole endurance run thing.

I started with the deadly premonition one. I have been watching them in the order that they have put out. I'm on like number BR-08, and it seems like BR are way ahead of VJ. VJ will do like a 20 minute episode, then BR will do one that is an hour. Seems to be like this lately.

Is the best way to watch this Endurance run is by going in the order that they put them in? Or should I just stick to BR or VJ, then once I am done all of that one, switch it over to the other one?

Also, my God I can't stand watching Brad play.

Just watch VJ. They are the superior team.

And then watch Persona 4, because it is the best.

GB's lack of content in the last few months makes it very easy to not resub. Plenty of games they could do it for. Crush3D, hell I'd even take a Funky Barn.

Yeah, I was thinking about dropping BR. VJ do seem like the best. I do like Ryan a little though.

I'll give BR one more video. If its not great, I'll probably drop them.

And yeah, I will definitely go to Persona 4. No doubt. Heard a lot of good things.

How is the Chrono Trigger run? Worth the time? Mind you, I played CT to Hell and back.

I thought content was flowing consistently 2 weeks prior to the move. It was the week of GDC when the content started to trickle out.

Kind of a dick move on Drew's part to leave for vacation when Vinny's still out on paternity. I would have waited the extra couple days for him to come back if I was in that position.

If you want to watch some good videos about games there are other places to get the fix.

If he's booked travel and board then changing plans would cost hundreds of dollars.

Could have been planned for months, don't blame the guy. This is assuming Vinny didn't tell him half a year ago, but they're probably not that intimate.

You really have no idea what's going on in Drew's life or why he's taking vacation right now so that's a dumb statement to make.

Oh please. Say what you will about Patrick but he certainly puts out plenty of original pieces. And I'd rather have his news posts than Alex's that are coated in several layers of cynicism half the time.

But the cynicism/snark is the best part! Alex gets a lot of hate, but I absolutely adore everything he writes.

I probably would have enjoyed Alex's writing when I was a teenager. The constant snark and sarcasm just gets tiring.

Any time a viewer is asking questions at a panel/on call during happy hour/during radio show it's basically the literal worst.

That said I understand why they do it so I just fast forward/skip when it's OH GOD bad instead of just cringeworthy.

Q&As are always hideous. There's no filter, and moreover they spend so much time already addressing questions; their own forums, formspring, member-stuff, etc.

You're absolutely right, so incredibly selfish "ooh ooh it's ME time! This is my fifteen minutes I can't wait to make a mark on the internet!" I was dreading the Q&A the entire time I was watching it, and I didn't even have to hear one question before I rolled my eyesódid you see the people run up to the mic the very second they were allowed to, as if they were children racing to cut in line for the ice cream truck? Waja.

Took a break rom the Persona 4 ER but started watching them again. So far I am at episode 64 and I am really enjoying it. The episode with the power going out was great just because at the end you could tell they were in a hurry to get it done before the PS2 shut off.

It is kind of weird watching it later though because you hear them talking about things like the GiantBomb app and Brad playing Velvet Assassin. It definitely seems in a lot of the episodes I have watched recently they just start to talk about what they are playing on their own. I guess that is to be expected because you can only make fun of the same things so many times.
