    I don't think that's 100% fair. Just reading how a Vinny week goes (he's posted it twice in NeoGAF) it's a miracle he can get stuff done. The great thing about Dan is that he doesn't have to answer to anyone but Jeff so he has more time to put out content.

    Yeah, the reason Dan can spearhead so much content is because he doesn't really have anything else to do. The only other ones who can really say that are Brad and Alex. Alex is there alongside Dan, and while Brad's not producing on the same level, he's still getting stuff out there.

    In addition to managing the team, Jeff has to deal directly with management, which anyone who's worked with management can tell you eats up time like a motherfucker, and everyone else is a key part of the production staff, and so are constantly balls deep in shit needing to get done.

    I was more thinking editorial staff like Brad and Alex

    Jeff probably sits in meetings all day and I don't blame video producers for anything

    Brad also produces the podcast.

    Brad also produces the podcast.

    He does?

    I was under the impression that that had largely fallen to Drew and Jason once they switched over to video. I knew he hosted but didn't seem like he had much else to do with it.

    My mistake.

    Video handles the live production, and Brad does the audio editing in post

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    From what people have said, Brad does a huge amount of behind the scenes work, so really west coast now has zero people who aren't tied down to a ton of other things. Jeff is probably in meetings 80% of the time, Brad is doing all that stuff he does, and the video guys are doing video things.

    Yeah, I haven't really paid attention to any of Twitch's original programming.

    I'm excited for the eventual montage video that comes out of This Is The Run.

    I don't mind Rorie or Will Smith that much.

    But both at the same time without Jeff might be a bit too much for me.

    Yeah Jeff mentioned it on JEFF.ZONE somewhat recently. Or maybe Jar Time. Either way yeah that's in the works.

    Hitman has a mode where you can create your own missions, known as Contracts mode. Every couple of weeks IO Interactive adds the best contracts as Featured Contracts, available to everyone no matter the platform. Here's today's batch:

    I'm surprised they didn't somehow add an optional objective to pull a guard through a wall/throw a mine into the fashion show/throw knife off roof/etc.

    Today's This Is The Run:
    Much to my surprise, they made it to the final boss of the game! A lot of stupid deaths on the way there, but that's part of the fun. I actually started to think they'd beat the boss, but nope! They could very well beat it next episode.

    I can't wait until next week's canadian correction avalanche.
    It's not even that that didnt know the word and then pronounced it wrong, it was the 5 minutes of grinding upwards ramp trying to remember the word, and then all falling over the falls in congratulatory agreement.
    ..tobogan?... toorg...toupe? no... TOKE! YEAH THATS IT, TOKE! TOKE TOKE TOKE!

    I feel like Dan's entire side of that argument is because he read that Calvin and Hobbes arc.

    He actually RT'd a fan who mentioned that Calvin and Hobbes strip and was like "See?!" so he might not have known about it until just then.

    Like, I remember when I was a kid, propeller hats were known as beanies, but I've also heard people call wool hats beanies as well.
