    I'm guessing that means he found someone to pick up his lease?

    From what Dan has said on previous podcasts he probably talked his way out of it somehow.

    Some British person is taking it. He is leaving behind his giant TV to sweeten the deal apparently, and has to pay a few weeks of rent as well after he leaves.

    This is from today's bombcast

    Glad things worked out for Dan.

    He will be missed on the Bombcast but I'm sure Hitdan will carry on at least.

    And it will be with Vinny this time so it'll be good

    Yeah, I'm sorta surprised Demo Derby is staying a GBWest feature, but I guess it makes sense. Dan was just the guy who came up with the idea, and Jeff was the fountain of knowledge. They don't really NEED Dan except for his stories about ignoring some of the stuff on the disc cause it wasn't cool to Kid Dan, or playing some game a lot at Funcoland.

    And now that Brad actually cares about playing Hitman right, he refuses to do Hitman Elusive Targets on camera, at least on his own account. Hitman content, if it continues into the new year, will likely involve Vinny somehow? Maybe coaching Dan like that one time? I feel like since the first season ended, Hitman content has sorta understandably tapered off on the site. Elusive Targets are usually messed around with on UPF, and it's Dan being terrible at the game because he doesn't know how to play but thinks he does, or that 4 player ET they did last week.

    No Single Agent/Double Agent stuff at all.

    As far as Hitman goes, I would much rather watch Vinny "coach" Dan than watch either Dan or Brad coach each other.

    And Demo Derby should absolutely stay with GBWest, so I'm perfectly happy about that.

    I'm betting even money that Jeff won't actually like P5. He'll appreciate the style but the ER was the only reason he got super invested in 4 to begin with.

    I guess you should've bought more.

    Yeah, it's something you actively could have saved if you just bought more.

    This is why you can't have nice things.

    Is that the same as the frito chili cheese burrito? Because I'd kill a man in front of his own mother for more of those fuckin things

  • GONG-00GONG-00 Registered User regular
    It was their chili, cheese, and some sour cream wrapped in a flour tortilla. It briefly returned as the chili cheese burrito which sadly has also vanished.

    Jason going on about Haggar on the newest Bombcast made me laugh harder than I've laughed in a good long while. Something about the way he says it just cracks me up.

    The last 2 are significantly shorter than previous mario party games. I think Mario Party 10's longest mode is shorter than most quick looks.

    Not really. He didn't seem super gloaty about it like his other life situations, and he at least had to sweat for a little while, if schadenfreude is your thing.

    Some British dude is getting a free TV and couch out of it, too.

    The lack of Tombstone representation on this week's Bombcast frozen pizza discussion bums me out

    Easily the best frozen pizza

  • lionheart_mlionheart_m Registered User regular
    If you want to brave Neogaf; Vinny answered some questions in the GB thread. It was pretty insightful.

    Look, I can appreciate Totinos as much as anyone else in the right circumstances but it is absolute garbage tier when it comes to frozen pizza.

    Tombstone is definitely my preference but nowadays if I do get frozen pizza I get the Kirkland brand one's at Costco which are really good.

    vinny's average work week:
    I think I've hit this before but I'll give you my quick and dirty:

    Mon - Sorting emails, about 3 hours of meetings (this includes our weekly production meeting, meeting with my boss, and my time to go over West coast production stuff with Drew). Extra time is usually used for trying to prep any games I'll be QLing or hosting for the coming week. We've tried to shift to making Monday more of a prepare your recordings day as once the week starts rolling it can be hard to find time.

    Tues - Email and fix broken stuff. In general this is our dedicated recording day, but how successful that is varies. This week I had a lot of catching up to do from being out of the office. For example, it took me around 3 hours just to get my expenses done, and then I had a bunch of studio maintenance to do (clearing space up, cleaning up, making sure software was updated, or wasn't going to update 10 minutes before a recording, etc).

    Wed - Email and fix broken stuff. This used to be when we'd have a live show, but now use it as a swing day for recording, meetings, live shows, etc. Today I processed this Sat's best of video from Derek, worked on making a vector version of Giant Bomb's logo in different colors for new merch, tried to figure out what our recording schedule will be like for the next 3 weeks as Alex and Jeff B. figure out holiday plans, got the studio up and running for Blue Bombin', started processing that archive, responded to people on NeoGaf, and... we're current.

    Thurs - Email and fix broken stuff. Beastcast day. If we can squeeze something in for the morning we try. Usually prep in the morning, emails, news stories, etc. Spend 30 minutes yelling at the printer. Record around 2pm. Finish around 5:00 when all is said and done. Process and export podcast and anything that was shot.

    Friday - Emails and fix broken stuff. Get anything done that was missed during the week. Live show from around 1 or 2pm. Usually done around 4pm. Process and export. Try to archive the week and clear space for the next week.

    Usually there are things that pop up throughout the week. Every week there's probably another meeting that gets scheduled in, or a technical change that requires some work, or a piece of gear that breaks, or stuff isn't going to YouTube, budgets that need to be made, making the case for a bigger, badder, Giant Bomb, planning, getting used to the new studio, and that damn printer. Also, sometimes people take a day off, which, no joke, throws this whole thing out the window. Not kidding.

    There's a few newer brands that I rather dig. Don't know if they're available everywhere, but I do dig Screamin' Sicilian and Bigfoot pizzas. The former also has some amazing frozen stromboli.

    Well, as it is their site, they probably don't want to fuck up that kind of conversation.
