All Systems Goku made me download a batch of Dragon Ball Z Kai episodes.

Oh lord, the latest Exquisite Corps... Dan's inattention
Spoiler :
Got Donna Tello and Gita Jackson straight up fired instead of removed from the party.


Also Jeff and Dan talking about episodes of DB Kai as a new podcast makes me maybe want to watch Kai.

I'm only about 20 minutes in but

Vinny: "all I can say to myself watching this is DON'T OPEN TOO MANY DOORS AT A TIME"
Dan: "have you seen how well it's gone so far?"

Good, cautious advice from Vinny = Dan doubling-down in risky behaviours "because it's working so far" is a disaster waiting to happen :pac

OH CHRIST

my own inattention didn't catch that either until someone put a clip on twitter. Bloody hell, that's a new one.

I guess it's better than being sacrificed to keep the Abomination safe.

Spoiler :
Is it a bug that the mind-controlled Dirt Bike didn't do anything? I seem to recall that might have happened to me too.

I never got deep enough into Within to field MECs that often, but it could totally be an expansion bug causing that particular effect just not working on them for whatever raisin. Which is lucky as hell considering the situation Dan found himself in there.

Hey Layfield in lieu of GB's Exquisite Corps you could always fill that void with Waypoint's XCOM 2 run, which I guess is now a regular weekly deal.

e: maaaan that's not the delivery I expected from John de Lancie.

XCOM is most fun when there's a healthy dose of chaos in there.

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.

https://www.giantbomb.com/tv/

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.)

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.
