Soul Calibur's character creator continues to be a helluva thing.

...I really shouldn't be dropping 80 :can currency units on Soul Calibur 6 but I'll be damned if I'm not a little tempted if there's Gritty to be had.

Not surprising that a lot of the clips people suggested were from the Ryan days. Man it was weird hearing his voice again introing the podcast. A little sad there wasn't any of the classic DSI-ware bits.

No DSIWare and no AUSTRALIAN BEEF is unfortunate. Still love all those stories about Jeff's party house though.

Alex is finally at a spot in Mass Effect where I WILL DESTROY YOU! starts happening with hilarious frequency.

oh and the new site beta is up

Today's GBE Playdate for some old Nancy Drew game. It's really something. :pac

I guess they figured out how to get old-ass Windows and DOS games working properly again 'cause there's been a lot of those lately. My head's still reeling from Total Distortion.

Haha yeah that one was certainly a thing. I didn't play a lot of games from that era but one of these days they'll cross paths with my experience and it's gonna be weird af

oh jeez they're getting back into terrible licensed "budget" games



"budget" in quotations because (in a Ryan Davis voice) forty dollars.

e: on the other end of the spectrum: how about that nearly six hours of Red Dead coverage that went up today, yikes

I started watching that Nikelodeon Cart Racer quick look and as not much of a cart racer it was actively hostile to my eyes, not even Dan and Vinny riffing on it could keep me for the duration of the QL.

Yeah, it's baffling to me that people are still making not-Mario, not-Sonic kart racing games, after everyone else seemed to realize it was a bad idea, like, in the PS2 era. And forty dollars is just... whaaaat.

Today's GBE Playdate is for Gitaroo Man so somewhere out there C6's ears are burning.

Wow the latest Tactical Tuesdays has the new XCOM updates, and the loadout screen playing 'Dogfight' from UFO Defense is hilarious and kind of too much. 19 min mark.

oh shit I missed a Tactical Tuesday :psylon Jumping on that now.

I loved some of the battle music from the new DLC that I YouTube'd before but yeah, I kinda figured that particular old remixed track would be extremely extra. It'll be interesting though to see how the new music in general changes the overall tone of the game.

Did you catch the Battletech portion of their recent charity stream because yikes

Haha yeah that duel was great, Rob's mind games swung it in his favour but it made for great TV.

Couldn't quite tell from that video, but if they do bring in dynamic music that'd be hella rad.

Just in time for Halloween (for you in the past types), GBE playdate is the Silent Hill HD collection... and the crew have some great costumes.

Yeah that was a moment to be sure. Clearly the most unsettling font, maybe it was the intent.

I don't know how, but Giant Bomb Austin looks different somehow to Waypoint Austin.
