Always puzzled which tweets get picked up and which don't. One day, the Woke Gamer will do a top 10 of his own tweets and they'll all be the ones with 3 likes apiece.

The first episode of their new Sims feature is a premium unlock if you wanna get a taste of that madness.

GB just launched Giant Bomb TV, a 24/7 livestream of archived content with chat and voting features. Right now the videos are all YouTube pulls but the chat is limited to premium.

Heh, whatever Demo Derby is on GBTV right now has BOF3 stuff in it.

Cool idea, hope it doesn't end up coalescing into the same few videos getting voted in repeatedly.

I'll sadly never truck with GB's super dismissive attitude towards most every RPG. I get they make for poor 20-40 minute videos and are hard to fit into a game journalist schedule but, maaaaan.

srsly P5 got robbed in every category last year ffs

They could use a Jeremy Parish or a Gita Jackson or a version of Shane Bettenhausen who isn't in the pocket of Big Playstation to get in there and talk RPGs. (Or just more Rorie maybe.)

oh christ I forgot they put music videos on some of these demo discs. Jeff's riffs on these are really great.

Can I say I'm getting a little tired of almost every GBE stream becoming a "shoot the shit" podcast session?

Can you elaborate on that? I feel like the Sims episodes are pretty focused.

13 Deadly Sims is about the only one that is, along with Exquisite Corps, most of the time. Blue Bombing was the main culprit, Who's the Big Boss does it a lot too. Most every GBE Playdate is also this.

Ah right, I'm not watching any of the old game streams because if it's not you playing I just can't stay interested.

I'm just starting to watch the latest Waypoint XCOM, in which the ship defense mission is called Sweaty Paramour. That's quite a name, but the ship is in the warm embrace of that EMP beacon thing.

I can't remember if I got deep enough into XCOM 2 to hit that mission but it looks like a goddamned nightmare.

The latest XCOM episode is a doozy, as tends to be the way as soon as Dan hands off to Abby she gets the hardest missions, in this case the base defense. Two and a half hours, but super intense.

Watch Dan get Newfoundland for a full team-wipe. Though I wonder if that mission can spawn after the base is attacked. I feel like I always saw it before that.

I believe so, it's surprising they haven't had it yet to be honest.

so that dumb ESA meeting with Trump happened and apparently all they did was watch a bunch of old YouTube clips. Among them was like five seconds of Dan Ryckert playing Fallout 4. probably from his personal YouTube I guess, I don't remember him playing F4 on a Giant Bomb stream or anything.

which one of you had "the fucking president" on their degrees of separation game card for Dan 'cause I think you just won some kinda prize

It's a good second screen experience video series, typically what is happening onscreen isn't terribly engaging so like Layfield has said before it basically is a Beastcast light. Suits me for this series.
