I loved when Chris was trying really hard to hype up Gamespot's coverage of Gamescom and Jeff just shot him down. Really funny and also the reason why I trust Jeff more than any other gaming journalist out there. He doesn't fake excitement, he doesn't try to rack up views with ridiculous hyperbole or stupid lists. If he likes something he says it. If he doesn't he'll say so.

This website is so slow and shite now, sign in and it takes me to the sign in page......... just have a pop up for suck sake, now I have to scroll through to find out where I was before. 


Also stop mixing highlights with the full show list, just makes it hard to find the full shows.

What happened to all the other livestreams Gamespot does? Megabit? Multiple Players? Random Encounter? The Shaun Method? Are they all done?

Wonder if Risen 3 will be as good as Divinity: Original Sin.

@catsmeat_baby If you mean Jeff then nah, he is always like that. He's just a big bundle of cynicism. The best times are when he gets super into a game because the guy doesn't even try to pretend to like things he doesn't think are good. When he was on the pre-E3 show on Gametrailers instead of hyping all the games that didn't look so good like everyone else on the show he just straight up said he wasn't looking forward to a single game except one he couldn't even talk about (which turned out to be the new Mortal Kombat). So while it can sometimes be a bit trying to watch him when he isn't paired with someone like Chris or Dan who get really into everything, I always know that when he says something is great then he really truly believes it. Not many people in journalism of any sort that you can say that about.

@saturatedbutter Sadly, after the layoffs I believe they are reinventing some of their web streams and shows. I'm sure in the next couple weeks we will have possibly a new lineup...or some news on what's to come.

@RenegadesXG As someone who owns both (and I've played and own Risen 1 & 2) its safe to say Divinity is the real gem. Though Risen 3 has made improvements over Risen 2 while bringing back concepts from Risen 1. In my opinion it's a decent RPG that's fun, but nothing tremendously new in terms of RPG mechanics that outshine the genre.

@Kalmaru I hate how they cut things off like that with no word about it. GameSpot always does it that way and it's so annoying.

@Kalmaru @RenegadesXG Piranha Bytes has always reminded me of a grandmother who ends up baking an undercooked pie but you eat it anyway because it's packed full of love and warms.

@saturatedbutter  Indeed! It's already unpleasing if they canceled those shows, but they could at least say something about it somewhere. I feel like I'm more annoyed about the cancellations than I should be just because they didn't warned us. Maybe the canceled shows were the ones related to Benito? Sadly he got fired and I remember seeing him or the hosts talking to him in most of those shows.
