I actually really enjoyed that. Spit-balling with mates about gaming, hey, throw in a box of Steinlager and this is my dream job.

It must be hard to make a provocative video every week

That was awesome. I wanna get paid to talk with my friends about absolutely nothing.

I thought it was cool.  They should have a gaming reality show about the gaming media, toss in a couple of the female staff so theres a mix of fans of the different genres  and then play some fans online in real-time once a week, give out a prize or something for bragging rights if they beat the GS staff.

Million dollar show idea. You're welcome GS.  

You can paypal me the royalties.

I'm gonna go against the comment grain here and say that this episode was sub par. I watch The Point and Danny for his well written and insightful commentary.  If I wanted to watch and listen to random commentary about nothing really all that exciting, I would turn on a baseball game.

Come on guys that was a lazy episode, just two guys ranting about random things relating to the video games world, ok you may have ran out of time and I hope next weeks episode is better but remember what happened to Feedbakula, that show was excellent and it got axed.

Tom is ever vigilant, always watching, remember underlings for he is your lord and master.

The Point made video game journalism look somewhat credible. Two guys talking hot air and avoiding looking at the camera works against that.

"The German one's are easy. We've got Crytek." THAT's where you decide to start? Not Settlers, Gothic or the recent swell of adventure games?

Danny should keep The Point the way it was and then just do some videos like this one where he and the rest of the staff just do brainstorming about random stuff like they did in this video, because this one was funny. And that should be random too, not a weekly show in a specific day, just some random videos coming out of nowhere

this was The Point's version of Seinfeld

Why are there pictures of Tom around the office?  Is Tom some kind of ever-vigilant overlord making sure that people are working?

Giants, Danny, really? So disappointed at you at this moment, I can't even think.

Gotta be the first video of Danny that I've seen in a while where he doesn't needlessly raise his hands in trying to make an awe-inspiring statement. There's always next week.

This is immediately my favorite video ever because Gamespot has my case in the background. Cooler Master 690-II Advanced. Buy it. Shit's cash.

Nice change of pace. The Point is a great show, but as of late, it feels as though it's taking itself a little too seriously.

Danny and Shawn you have the best jobs ever!

Maybe not as thought provoking as usual but I still really liked this episode.

Is McShea the dark master of the GameSpot office? Work hard people. He sees all. The scary thing is that photo of him in a top-hat in front of the White House was actually taken in the mid-19th century.

I'm happy with this episode. I love The Point, but it does make my head hurt some times. it's nice to have an easy-watcher.

Is it just me or is this literally the best video Gamespot has ever done?

Sometimes no plan is the best plan. I loved this weeks "The Point". It was Danny and Shaun at their best. McInnis is a legend in the field of spitballin' ideas. Danny obviously delegates the spitballin' like a CEO.


So entertaining. Ill throw in a fiver to shave McShea's head.

Best The Point Ever!!! Due to Tom McShea cameo!!!

I usually love the show Danny, but this was disappointing. If this was a side video about the creative process or something, good fun. But you've set the bar pretty high for the point, and to have this instead was a bummer. 

There are a ton of huge things to discuss in gaming lately; even if it does break the "this week" theme. So get back to fighting to good fight.

Edit...I'm remembering that the No Man's Sky videos were some of the greatest I've ever seen, so I'm gonna give this a pass. But don't let it happen again son.

@dfernand Feedbakula got axes because it stirred negativity and stupidity in the comments.

@dfernand And you put in 100% every single day you go to work?  They had a Seinfield episode, only better. Its nice to see the staff just hanging out, enjoying the job (and the subject matter), and just generally getting along. We should all be so lucky to have co-workers like that.


The Feedbakula comparison is a bit of a stretch considering how inflammatory that show was, even though I thought it was pretty damn good as well and am still sad that its gone.

@coldscooter Ya, you guys are right, I just get excited when I see an episode of the Point, and this felt like blue balls. But Danny is the man, he deserves a break. And that's why I edited my post above...I remembered that those insane NMS videos were just this week. Pass given.
