Giant Bomb Bomb-All

Damn, what a huge bummer. I hope they can bounce back from this quickly.

And wasn't the space they rented making a big deal about how there was always someone on site watching the place? Sheesh!

Yeah really. Last year was the super-sketchy location that was kind of scary by all accounts and they had zero problems. And they get a proper space this year and get cleaned out. Of all the days for them not to be able to stream. I feel bad for them, I hope Vinny and Drew can pull a miracle today. If any two guys can do it...

Jeff ended up doing a bit of streaming via twitch around midnight PST, tired and frazzled. I've really enjoyed how much he, personally, has started doing so much streaming.

He only does it because it doesn't require him to wear pants.

From the way they talked about it last week, it was far from zero problems. The problems were just of a different nature.

Unbelievable. It almost makes me wonder if some jerk is out to get those poor giantbomb fellows. I mean, sure its LA so of course people are going to break into homes full of expensive equipment, but I just can't help but wonder.

Oh my god. Ghost cops. This sealed envelope podcast is hilarious.

The ending to that podcast is almost apocryphal if I didn't know any better.

Oh man, yeah. Last week's podcast where Ryan said that no matter what happens this year, the worst case scenario couldn't possibly be worse than last year, is kind of cringe-worthy now.

Yup. I was listening to it again this afternoon and I kept shaking my head. Hope today was kind to the GB crew, particularly Drew and Vinny.

So I've got a ridiculous question.

Go to the GB front page. http://www.giantbomb.com/

There's a listing of Latest Stories. Scroll down to the bottom and there's no "next page" link.

How do I view archived "Latest Stories"? Hitting the News link at the top of the page brings up a completely different list.

As far as I know, the front page is a mix of news and videos, so if you want to see what else you have to select news or video (just click the top rather than the dropdown) for the longer lists.

Well that's too bad.

The stories are coming so quick from E3 that I can't keep up when I hit the site periodically through the day.

Once material passes beyond the front page, it goes into its respective category page on the site. Trailers and Quicklooks are in the Videos section, Audio Interviews are in the Podcasts section, etc. It's kind of a pain in the ass, but if you know what you're looking for you should be able to find it.

I just imagine Matt Rorie with a fire extinguisher blowing down the server.

Combined with the site having large issues, the crew has had a run of terrible luck this week.

Day One Livestream is almost ready to go, and the initial rush to get in apparently crashed 6 servers and the Giantbomb site.

People are PUMPED.

Edit: Site and Chat are up.

Edit 2: Stream is LIVE.

butt tumblr...

I probably said this last year, but whatever. I'll say it again.

I wish they'd focus a bit less on having all the guests in the world and more on the Giant Bomb staff with these E3 shows.

Yeah, but maybe it's fun for them. 95% of the site is them, so this gives them a chance to get drunk with their friends and do their thang.

Yeah, but this is the internet and I'm the audience and I'm the one that matters!

Delighted to see that the second half of last night is all GB dudes. Maybe I'm just irritated with Max Temkin.

Well, if my cries for bringing back Leigh Alexander fall on deaf ears then so do your demands!!

There was a certain strange appeal to that chaos, wasn't there? Scandal is interesting I guess.

Are they putting videos up of the live shows anywhere, or just audio versions? I can't find a video for Day 1.

It's just audio (Bombcast) on the site. For video you'll have to hit Twitch.

Also, STREAM IS LIVE.

Ah, right. Found it. Thanks!

Cliffy B has already won me over.

I wanted more straight up analysis and then "butt tumblr" happened. And then I settled in and I was happy.

This is just the best livestream ever. Holy crap.
