I don’t get Jim Sterling’s gimmick, but I catch the occasional video by him and they’re always on the mark as far as lambasting profiteering corporations go

the gimmick is making the same video over and over so dont worry

I was always kinda bummed when giantbomb got picked up by CBS. I kinda started to cool off on giantbomb when ryan davis passed away and vinny moved, i guess they had a whole another run of it afterwards. Its funny i was just recently thinking about how giantbomb cant go on forever.

As much a bummer it is, and all the memories of GB i have, it's been in slow decline since they got bought up an Ryan died. Each new person was slightly less entertaining and stayed around for less time than the last. Having to do the same poo poo during the pandemic probably took away they small amount of passion they had and the corporate behemoth still slowly sucking the life out of them.

Maybe that's the lesson to take away in life... everything that starts good slowly gets shittier until it gets a lot shittier really fast.

Thanks for all the memories GB

yeah its a pretty obvious conversion of sniper elite but its cool

Pretty well done how they incorporated it, although I haven't played that series either and usually avoid sniper classes– but it's really satisfying in Zombie Army 4. I was looking for a L4D kinda vibe and I think it really nails it

You don't need to watch every one of them.

I don't watch if I'm not interested but I still enjoy seeing which of his takes are too spicy and get backlash from the community or some insane game developer.

sleep apnea is equivalent to having someone strangle you every once in a while while you're asleep. if it's mild it's not really a risk, but the longer the oxygen deprivation lasts obviously the worse it is.
