The spaces between realities!
What happened?


Long ago when the game was coming out they said Mass Effect was nothing more than an 'interactive movie' and nothing else.

Mass Effect (and the original Trilogy) were some of the best games I ever played. I played the the first ME when I was in college and it is STILL a game I play just for how good it is.
YES It has been over a decade. I hold grudges.

They get stuff wrong now and then. Jeff hating Quantum Break because he played it as a cover shooter and said it was a poor one.
The guy was so set on it that everyone telling him it wasn't a cover shooter hence the minimal use of cover wasn't enough for him to drop the complaint and said you could never flow the powers together.

This resulted in loads of videos/Gifs being put up showing that if you actually play it like you should the flow works and looks great.



But they don't hold back and Jeff will have a field day with Spencer if he gets to do interviews any time soon....

You have to keep an open mind when it comes to them discussing games. It's all opinion based and sometimes they are just bad and/or lazy. There's good content in there and some funny videos. Again, nothing they say is gospel. It's all entertainment with some decent insight in there.

I stayed away from Quantum Break for a long time because I heard it wasn't a great game. Finally picked it up last year or something and enjoyed it very much.

I think much of the staff enjoyed Mass Effect in the end, but yeah, they can get some things wrong sometimes. You can only take what they said and then do some follow-up on your own.

I love giantbomb, but f*** Alex is annoying me every time he opens his whiney mouth... I still remember a few years ago on their GOTY thing and he kept trying to get a game in the top 3 that didn't belong there according to the criteria (think it was a remaster or something) and he kept insisting on it being there... Then he tried getting it in the top 10 even though Jeff (or Brad) had made it clear it didn't belong because of it not fitting the criteria. He whined like an annoying 6 year old until he finally gave up. Can't stand the guy.

He can be alright but it was hard watching videos over the last couple months because he was constantly complaining about games with certain themes coming out during a pandemic. (The Medium, last of us 2....)

And how due to that he didn't want to play them so rather than just not play them he would then constantly s*** on them.

Did they say why? Is it their new corporate overlord? Will they continue doing game podcasting?
I only saw a small portion of their stream today and skimmed twitter for further details. Not much at the moment.

Going to try and watch some more, but doubt they mention why.

Jeff is staying, but I suspect it's going to be vastly different.

Maybe Patrick and/or Austin will do a news piece?

I love Vinny. Would wish he'd do his own stream or something.

I wish them all the best.

The speculation is pointing towards the buyout not to long ago. It seems there was a comment made by Vinny that there is disagreement about the future.

My hope is Jeff is just staying on to help transition to new people and him, Brad, and others start something new.

Lets be honest. The heart and soul are leaving and it’s going to take a lot to save GB.
