    God the Paul Barnett bombcast is maddening

    Minecraft isn't about lego blocks! It's about building homes in the wilderness! It's about exploration! Sure, if you just use it to play with lego blocks, it's gonna get boring! The beauty of Minecraft, the reason it went viral, is because it is such a simple concept and such a simple execution that it means different things to many different people!

    God, I can't believe no video game person over there understands what that game is

    It's insanity

    Weekend Confirmed, at 2:08:45, during their 2011 predictions:

    Jeff: Do you think that, from a hardware perspective, all we're going to see is handheld stuff?
    Garnett: As far as new consoles, no...
    Jeff: Well, any hardware.
    Garnett: I'm completely, you know I'm ...(short pause)... almost dead certain that we'll see the Wii...
    Jeff: The new Nintendo.
    Garnett: ...the next Nintendo home console.
    Shane: (long drawn out sigh [Maybe he's heard this too many times from everywhere else?])
    Garnett: What, you don't think so.
    Shane: We hear rumblings, well, we've already heard rumblings...
    Garnett: We've heard rumblings forever, man!
    Shane: I don't think we'll see that or the next Microsoft home console revealed by the end of 2011.

    Sooooooooooo.....could that mean Sony will reveal their next console in 2011? :P But really, I just had a faint feeling of "read between the lines" with the way that last line by Shane was said.

    I doubt it. Sony of all companies have no incentive to unveil a new console in '11. Unless it's something entirely different from the PS3.

    I'd say Nintendo are most likely to actually do so of the three. Which is to say I don't think it's very likely at all.

    It was pretty stupid the way they talked about Minecraft, though. It's like they think it's purely some shitty 3d legos simulator.

    I would truly be surprised if any of them had actually purchased the game and played survival mode.

    I only just found out that there was an actual game in there like two days ago

    Namely because every time I've ever seen it brought up, someone's like "It's like playing with Legos in 3D!" and my response is "The only thing I can think of that is more yawn-inducing is playing with actual Legos."

    Less so, though, for 4 professional journalists whose business it is to play games and form educated opinions on them.

    It's their business, but not their job.

    They pretty much make their own rules about what they're going to play and not play

    And if that game were described in that fashion (as it often is), I can't blame them for not investing any time in it

    Kind of like how everyone last year went apeshit over Demon's Souls and they barely even touched it, because it's not really their thing.

    Obviously they're basically their own bosses and can slack off when desired, no argument or ill will there.

    It more bothers me that they went out of their way to trash something that they've not made an effort to understand.

    They're not slacking, they're just very choosy of what they cover. They've talked about that multiple times; the whole "we don't have to cover the new plasma gun screenshot of the week, because we only want to cover stuff that seems interesting to us." It's one of the reasons I enjoy the site and their podcast so much.

    All this discussion of the bombcast is getting tiresome, so let's talk about an award everyone can agree on instead: Idle Thumbs won podcast of the year from something called CastMedium, which I had never heard of before now, but they picked Idle Thumbs so obviously they know what they're talking about.

    Really? I thought you guys were all over Idle Thumbs and its spiritual ancestor GFW Radio. Maybe I'm conflating you with the SA podcast thread.

    Anyway, if you want to listen to Idle Thumbs, start from the beginning and enjoy the most interesting, insightful and hilarious game podcast on the internet while it lasts.

    I'm probably a terrible indicator. Idle Thumbs made up more than a few thread titles here, I think.

    If it's seriously in the spirit of GFW, I must preemptively thank you for the recommendation. Thanks!

    Idle Thumbs is pretty awesome, but I don't know

    At some point all the in-jokes and non-sequiturs sort of start to annoy, and they can be a little holier-than-thou 'bout video games at times

    Still, though

    It's interesting that no console exclusive game made GB's top 5 this year. Especially since that list came close to having 2 PC exclusives and GB are not remotely fans of PC gaming.

    You'd think that the expensive first party efforts being made would have had a bit more of an impact.

    Yeah, only God of War and Halo. Oh and GT. Only.

    [edit] Oh and I wasn't really clear. I meant games exclusive to one console. That is I was surprised that the only exclusive games that seemed to get real consideration were PC exclusives.
