A few of these guys are seriously slacking off. Like I said, wtf do these people do all day? Please tell me they're recording GOTY or are on vacation or something. This is the number of minutes they've been on stream/video/podcast the last 7 days. Keep in mind, they've been on the clock for 2400 minutes (I'm assuming 8 hours x 5 days).

Ben: 624 min (respectable)
Jeff: 476 min
Brad: 358 min
Alex: 166 min
Dan: 166 min
Vinny: 140 min
Abby: 54 min

I'm sorry, I can't tell if you're honestly trying to explain their lack of effort or just being sarcastic.
A little bit of both. I read or heard since they got bought by CBS, they had to do more meetings than they used to. But even if they had super long meetings every week, that still wouldn't explain how unproductive they are. It's not like their making game reviews where they are writing scripts and editing. The gamegrumps are more productive for no other reason then they put out a shit ton of videos a week.

Ah, OK. I wasn't aware of that. It really looks like he isn't taking medication or he fucking needs to go see a doctor. Ben also looks like an unhealthy fuck (and I don't mean his weight) but at least he looks like he is working condition.
I don't like to speak on appearances, but Ben looks like a big pasty warm-milk drinking sack of shit.

Ben is just a mongoloid. He could be a picture of health and he's always going to look like that.
What makes it funnier is he seems to think he’s this hip and trendy hipster type. Like, really cool. Even down to how he tries to speak.

But, he just looks like an awkward and hideous giant nerd.

Speaking of other podcasts, I believe someone on here may or may not have recommended them, but the gigaboots podcast is pretty sweet.

It has the fuck to do with your obsessing over how many hours they're working in a day vs how many hours of podcasts they're outputting. Chill out.
Dude, that took 10 minutes of my time, at work. I never indicated that I don't have enough podcasts to listen to. My point is these fuckers are overpaid and lazy as fuck. Chill out.

Oh let us bitch and moan, for years GB was a big part of the entertainment life of a lot of guys in here.
Watching the website go from a carefree crew of actually well informed guys having a laugh at the latest videogame, to a politic driven gaming "themed" assembly of zoomers with little to no knowledge of the subject matter kind of stings, and bitching about it somehow brings back the good community feelings we lost when everything turned into leftist propaganda and cancel culture over there.

Agreed.

Also, this is one of the last bastions of truly free space where people can speak their minds about this shit show.

Everywhere else you’d be fighting the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda before getting silenced and banned.

I say it time and time again, I make it my mission to call out stupid and call out hypocrites. Current day Giant Bomb definitely qualifies.

Jason has health issues. I believe vision in one of his eyes is failing him due to diabetes in which you will notice he has begun to shut one eye on some videos when playing games.

While we here do have a safe space to express ourselves, I feel it is important to keep things on track: We all care about GB in some respect. Talking down on people, of which if you read my first post I am guilty of, is going to happen as we are all opinionated. When it comes to the brand, or the community's health, I hope for some turnaround as it has stagnated. I was listening to some old Bombcast clips and they were informative, funny and on brand. How I miss those days.

Saying that, I wish no ill will upon anyone on staff. I am truly concerned for Jason. Diabetes is no laughing matter, and I hope he is doing ok. He has a wife and a child of only a few years. Damn the world if his affliction takes over.

Nice. Paul is a fellow that I would genuinely like to hang out with and have a beer together. A great blend of intelligence and laid back "whatever". Dan and Bdonk? Yeah, a match made in heaven.... or was that hell?

From the 18th to the 29th here are the numbers I got;

Ben--1062 mins
Jeff--913 mins
Jason--735 mins
Alex--696 mins
Jan--616 mins
Abby--584 mins
Brad--556 mins
Vinny--526 mins
Dan--466 mins

Using your metric, which I'm assuming was from the 22nd to the 28th since you made your post Friday morning I got these numbers;

Ben--627
Jason--508
Jeff--478
Brad--359
Dan--321 mins
Alex--321 mins
Vinny--295 mins
Jan--267
Abby--209 mins

I don't understand why our numbers are so different, I just used to website to see the cast of each video then the cast of the podcasts and
totaled it up.

Actually kind of looking forward to the virtue signaling PC centric shitshow the GOTY discussions will be this year.

Next year will be even better with Trump’s re-election 🤣

Making fun of their stupid sjw arguments will be the only fun thing about the goty talks, and at this point I am fine with just getting that to trash them here afterwards, cause they ain't giving me actual good goty deliberations anymore. xD

Last Friday’s Beastcast was very chill and entertaining to listen to. During the premium membership sale Abby said “Thank you for allowing me to have a job”. That kind of humility is what I feel like has been lacking in their recent attitudes. It goes a long way for me. The line in the sand politics and soap boxing from much of the industry and fans is why I’m here; cause it’s alienating and way crazy to me. It was nice to enjoy them and not have all that divisive baggage.
But Ben. He’s the only thing I just can’t get on board with in any way. I’m down for more of Jeff’s Mister stuff.

Controversial opinion maybe? Jeff's appeal never had anything to do with the games he was playing. His tastes are mostly bland or of the "ironic" brand. His appeal was in the humor arena, but now he's mostly just lame.

I don't understand.

You've said he's lame, but then posted a video of him clearly being fucking awesome.

I had to pause and come back to the most recent Bombcast when Ben started prattling on about politics in games. Christ I hate him. I mean. I'm sure he's a lovely chap in real life. Away from a microphone, or any kind of ability to have his "ideas" permeate through society. But he fucking drags the podcasts down so much.

I miss Ryan.

Take your own advice, Ved. You don't want lose it and "I'm out" yourself from this forum, too.

Jeff's rap schtick has always been lame. It's even more pathetic considering how much of a pandering cuck he is these days. Very much not gangsta.

I’m not denying that Jeff has boring and shit tastes in games, but he also has a history of shilling his mate’s games. Divekick comes to mind.

I’m not suggesting he’s getting paid for it or anything like that, but he’s definitely done it in the past. I get that he’s one of the “best” of a bad bunch, but I don’t believe for a second that his integrity keeps him above that sort of thing.
No offense but i think Jeff would be the last one to shill.

About the only thing that remains ok with GB

Why would I be offended? That’s your opinion.

My opinion is he has shilled, multiple times. Not for monetary gain, but for people he knows. Publicity.

Ben being in the most Giant Bomb content is a fucking crime. It was actually bearable when he was on holiday.

Jeff needs to wise up, but sadly he doesn't give a shit anymore.

Im sure he probably gives somewhat of a shit but he can't just fire the dude for being an unappealing, unfunny retard. That’s not how the gaming media works nowadays.
