  1. Interesting read from Dave Snyder
  2. I wonder if the giant bomb name is hampering the current team at this point. I’m sure there must be a decent audience out there for what they’re putting out, I just don’t think it fits with what people expect from Giant Bomb. You end up with a lot of the old crowd departing to follow the old crew and not a lot of new views coming in to make up for that. Perhaps it’s time to relaunch it as something new altogether. Then again, I know nothing about how these things work.
  3. Like many here I just don’t even feel tempted to look at or listen to any GB stuff anymore. It’s just not for me now and that’s fine. Last episode I tried I just felt like I was too old for whatever it was they were trying to make. Jeff on the other hand I feel like I can listen to non stop with no problem. Even when he’s talking about stuff I have little interest in. I’m glad he’s having success on his own, he sounds like he’s enjoying himself again.
  4. Ikit was the only vortex campaign I ever actually finished. I don’t think anything is as satisfying as watching ratling gunners completely melt a charging infantry line before any of them touch you. He’s the only dlc lord I think is absolutely mandatory if you want to play that race. The units in that pack make the skaven. You might actually have to enter melee combat without them. *spit* I’m so glad immortal empires is here. I’m going to be playing this for years.
  5. Ghorst is still a silly zombie boy by the looks of things. I am a big fan of leaving some broken stuff in for single player and just balancing the multiplayer. Let people choose the experience they want. @Scruff big boy Kholek is definitely on the list. I played so much WoC in earlier versions that I want to wait a while before touching them again, even with all the improvements. Same for best best rat boy Ikit. my inner emo does pull me towards the bad guy factions though. Hopefully chaos dwarfs don’t take too long.
  6. My last vampire coast game featured noctilus riding a necrofex commanding a necrofex doom stack. I even gave queen bess to my B army. Lots of fun, would play again. Once I finish up with ghorst I’ll be trying Isabella all vampire army. Might try something with living creatures after that.
  7. I’m trying to enjoy this as much as possible before it’s nerfed into the ground. According to Reddit the healing caps are currently not working as intended hence my immortal tide of walking dead. Sure is fun though.
  8. I always felt like Jeff was burnt out on games after doing this so long. Really seems like it was just the corporate culture that he was tired of. Dude is a unique talent when it comes to talking about games. I might finally have to get a patreon account.
  9. Oh yeah I do that all the time. You make the right decision, the move doesn’t come out and you then keep trying to get the move out even though it’s not the right decision anymore. We kage players call it 9k+g syndrome.
  10. I’ve only tried 3 so far. The starting location for the undivided faction is ROUGH. Chaos is auto at war with non chaos, being so close to the south makes this a problem. It also heavily triggered my analysis paralysis so I’ve sacked that off for now. Khorne is quite straightforward. The growth penalty if you don’t keep fighting can make it a little tough to get rolling at the start. I love blood letters on juggernauts though. Nurgle has a lot going on on the campaign map. I haven’t messed with the plague stuff enough to not how necessary it is yet. Seems a little weak on the battle map.
  11. I really want to be playing this more but it is running incredibly poorly for me right now. The campaign map is especially brutal so I’m going to hold off and keep an eye on Reddit etc with the hopes that things improve. My pc isn’t a monster but it is better than the performance I’m getting.
  12. I actually really enjoyed your patience and willingness to actually defend at the appropriate time instead of trying to steal turns like a lot of the rest of us are guilty of. Made me wake up a bit and stop playing on autopilot so much and I really enjoyed all the games I had with everyone yesterday much more. Now I just need everyone to forget the terrible amount of tfts I missed.
  13. Thanks to @Kayin Amoh @Jonster and @Goemon for the games today. Most fun I’ve had since this was released. I actually wanted to go and practice afterwards.
  14. Had a delightful time getting a manly slapping from @Jonster’s mighty sumo just now. Wish more people played this game.
  15. It’s my favourite film of all time.
  16. According to Reddit it’s only the YouTube versions that are edited. I haven’t checked the site myself in sometime so didn’t confirm.

    The Boxing Thread

    Wilder was definitely improved from the second fight and I hope that performance rebuilds some of the goodwill he lost with his reaction to the previous fight. Fury wasn’t as sharp as the second fight. A little too confidant early on I thought. He was letting wilder measure him with the jab and I don’t think the best version of fury allows that. He’s still the best heavyweight boxer on earth right now. wilder a little better, fury ever so slightly worse. Makes for an absolute banger.

    The Boxing Thread

    That puncher’s chance is always there but I think it only happens if Tyson is slacking somehow. If Tyson is properly focussed on this fight and wilder in front of him it doesn’t look too different from the second match. I suspect he’s already beaten wilder again in his head and that costs him a little bit. I think he still wins, a bit rougher than it has to be.
  19. That’s unfortunate because the current podcast doesn’t inspire me to subscribe to their patreon. On the other hand I have been subscribing to GB years and I genuinely couldn’t tell you when I last consumed any premium content. I just like supporting them.
  20. I’ve been trying to play this again this morning-afternoon. Green connections are getting even rarer as I presume the remaining European players are getting bored of no matches and giving up.
  21. Same here. Had this running in the background most of the night. Maybe got five games in.
  22. Apparently the room match bug has been fixed. ggs to kayin and bacon last night, persevering in the face of said bug.
  23. Wife is off to bed so I’ll be around for the next couple hours if anyone fancies some good old fashioned ninja shit.
  24. Most strings in the game are unsafe if you finish the last hit. The idea is the ppp part of it gives you time to hit check and you can stop before finishing. The opponent has to gamble to pressure you after because the canned K will still beat anything. Jacky’s 6PK is an excellent example of this. You block the 6P and it’s your turn, but if you try and take it and jacky finishes the string you’re getting knocked down. You guess right and you block the K he’s punishable. You give him too much respect and he can just apply fraudulent pressure over and over.
  25. friendly reminder that you don’t always have to finish strings. Especially if opponent has caught on that you’re doing ppp sweep and blocking everytime. Do ppp low throw. Conditioning goes a long way in vf. Try not to fall into repeating the same habits and instead look at how your opponent is responding to certain situations, put them in that situation and crush them with the move that beats their response. I suck at every single technical aspect of vf, all my wins come from winning the Rock Paper Scissors game more times than the other guy. Don’t stress about rank. Don’t worry about winning. Have fun with the guessing games and figuring out some set ups that work for you. Winning will take care of itself after a while.
