    Gamespot does a Game of Thrones podcast.

    The exact type of GoT podcast GB did as a joke during E3, which was just like 6 minutes of people going "I dunno, I don't watch that show"

    Also GB's fanbase is passionate and pays subscription dollars AND might actually use the stuff they advertise on the Bomb/BeastCast. GB is smaller than GS, but certainly no slouch. As long as Jeff can point at a number of dollars that they bring in and tell the suits to leave them alone, they should be fine.

    Yup, but what about Gamespot?

  • cooljammer00cooljammer00 Hey Small Christmas-Man!Registered User regular
    Gamespot is still pretty big, last I heard. Maybe not as big as in the past, but they have their fingers in so many pies that they maybe make their money elsewhere.

    Then again, there's a reason they fired all those editors a few years ago, and it wasn't cause people were foaming at the mouth for game previews/reviews.

    Also I've had a Ska Pandora station going on at work for about a week now.

    I'm pretty sure I like ska.

    This bombcast was even more negative than I expected, and I was expecting an extremely negative podcast.

    fun fun.

    gamespot.com used to be my go-to site for video game stuff, followed by IGN and some other sites. Sometime in 2006 or so I got more into 1up.com, and by the time Jeff got the boot I had already stopped going to Gamespot with any regularity. It's kind of funny how I didn't really have any appreciation for the personalities at Gamespot until I got to know them better via Giant Bomb. I remember seeing one video Gamespot put out with Jeff in the early 2000s and I came away thinking he was a meathead fratboy type. It's hilarious how wrong I was about him in hindsight.

    Austin saw that Jaden Smith and Shia LaBeouf started up some 4-year livestream protest against Trump and it was close to him, so he went there and had something to say this morning before it got reeeeal crowded:

    Yeah, I'm really happy that the guy is running Waypoint and I think that his voice comes through in a lot of the articles that get greenlit on that site. BUT, I miss seeing him more in the front and the articles that he would write.

    You can hear Austin two or three times a week.

    Waypoint Radio is a podcast he does with Danielle, Patrick, sometimes others.

    And I do, but he doesn't have as much time to do articles and such as he used to himself.

    Also, I'm not the biggest fan of Danielle or Patrick really which makes Waypoint Radio not as great. I don't hate them or anything they just don't really entertain me at all in the way someone like Austin does.

    Alex made a pretty good comment in response to Dan yesterday during Blue Bombin'. Skip to around 1:13:00. Dan tells a story about messing with kids.

    Alex's response was
    "I feel like you're just describing your relationship with the Giant Bomb audience."

    From listening to the latest Waypoint, it turns out that Austin wasn't even aware that that was Jaden Smith (he didn't recognize him), he only found out later when someone at Vice pointed it out to him.

    Amazing. :lol:

    Jaden Smith is a putrid little toad who tells people to drop out of school and who wants to be a religious prophet.

    Shia Labeouf is okay.

    Shia Labeouf is a shithead who mistreats and abuses assistants.

    Jaden Smith is at least good for a laugh, even if unintended.

    Considering all the goodbye stuff Mary has been posting on social media, it's unlikely she's just moving next door to GB.

    Still holding out hope for a move to GBEast but that's unlikely.

    I mean he is literally appearing basically out of thin air to talk into a weird street art protest project thing. What else can you ask for?

    In all seriousness, he does do game streaming stuff too. I'm watching a video of him and Danielle playing Hitman.

    I gotta say, Dan Ryckert puts all the excuses we've heard from other GB staff about content draught to shame

    Dude has consistently put out premium feature after premium feature and just reviewed Resident Evil VII

    Reminds me of the Whiskey days when they were hungry and put out massive amounts of content
