thought I got that edit in before anyone saw it!!

Did remind me that I gotta listen to the new Nick Robinson and Griffin podcast, though. I don't get why Griffin/Justin can't just make a normal goddamn video game podcast, but I guess they used to do one at Joystiq so maybe it's just tread ground for them?

Even when they're doing Monster Factory, it seems like Justin's in a bit of a rush, so they might not necessarily have the time to do a dedicated vidja game show. As Griffin said, they've got their toes in a lot of pies.

Yea between being a dad and MBMBAM stuff doesn't Justin actually have a fairly serious title at Polygon? Like, some level of management not just some writer anymore? I imagine of all the bros he probably has the least free time by far.

This page has him as "editor-at-large". Whatever that means? He is the 4th person listed there though.

Now Lin-Manuel got Rock "The Dwayne" Johnson to tell Griffin that he's doing a great job.

He had a different position until recently that was more boss-like, I think he wanted to move away from that though. I can't remember what it was.

it's hard to overstate how public zeitgeist-y Hamilton is btw

like i remember reading some Onion-esque article titled "Okay, okay, I'll go see Hamilton" that played on the concept of how that's the New Thing everyone tells everyone else to see after they see it like an annoying rear end in a top hat

I've really enjoyed his work with Polygon. Like most people I stopped following game review sites a long time ago and before listening to MBMBaM I only knew Polygon as "that site that made a documentary about themselves that was paid for by Microsoft" but giving him a platform to just be his bonkers self is rad as hell. Even before Monster Factory his casual quick plays and his weird one-offs videos have been great.

I wonder if any of the Ethics In Games Journalism crowd is using the fact that Griffin has so many big celebs vouching for him as proof that Polygon is totes corrupt.

They already hate Polygon because there's a lot of articles about women and minorities in gaming on Polygon compared to other sites, and they let women write op/eds sometimes. drat SJWs ruin everything

Basically anyone outside of the original Besties has bad opinions. It's also just basically turned into a different Kotaku at this point. Hopefully Griffin's vanity projects can save them.

remember that time arthur gies went on twitter bragging about how microsoft paid them 750k when they were starting and they honestly expected to be treated seriously literally ever after that about anything related to the xbox one family of products

it's cool when your editor in chief literally fuckin brags about losing all journalistic integrity irt one of the manufacturers of the products you're ostensibly supposed to critique

Yea one of the best examples about how...let's call them certain factions...don't give a poo poo about actual ethics in journalism is that there are legit things to say 'ok well I kinda don't trust any review coming from you after these past examples of you being dumb and shady' but instead they focus on 'AND IN A REVIEW SAYING HOW GREAT WITCHER 3 IS HE ALSO MENTIONED IT WAS A BIT LAME THAT LIKE ALL FANTASY GAMES IT'S BASICALLY ALL WHITE PEOPLE WITH poo poo LIKE ELVES AND DWARFS REPRESENTING MINORITIES THAT loving CORRUPT LOSER'.
