Bosman at Home - Official Discussion Thread



  • @marcel love his personality! I become gametrailer fans after Final Bosman.



  • @marcel I LOVE THIS, it really makes me want to rewatch the whole thing again, 8.4



  • @ObbyDent I love that Bosman tribute video. Makes me want to go back and re-watch all of TFB, this lad is a treasure.

    I wish he brought the show to EZA though, it's the only thing that's missing. Hopefully he has a change of heart.

    I think at the moment he's too busy to commit to doing a regular Bosman show for EZA which is why we have Bosman at Home and its sporadic release schedule.



  • snip I was going to write a comment about crowd funding Bosman at home's production value, but realized it'd probably be more helpful to get EZA's Patreon funding up to 50k a month. DO IT! snip

    I always -have- enjoyed the somber atmosphere in Kyle's videos (even while some of the backdrops/drapes were a little grandiose - loved them too!).



  • @ObbyDent Love this one. Youtube Video



  • @Hoken How have I never seen that before? Brilliant



  • @ObbyDent Look at that guy's channel, some amazing things there.



  • I was a big fan of Final Bosman and have been enjoying his new show as well..

    All of his episodes are well written and delivered in sort of professional manner that's still fun and interesting to watch.. as opposed to the loud, fast cuts, crazy stuff that makes up most of what's popular on the internet these days



  • @Hoken Awe man Absolutely the remix vid.



  • The Final Bosman really got me into watching other GT shows regularly. His critiques on the industry are always insightful and well thought out, not to mention hilarious. I'm really looking forward to some kind of post-E3 impressions show if he decides to do one.

    Could we see a one off return of Battle of the Bands? Or something new?



  • Really looking forward to the next Bosman at Home..
    The Final Bosman was my gateway to the GT realm and I watched every episode at the time at least 10 times before they closed down. He's such a great personality and he respects games so much, and he takes a real honest perspective and gives honest opinions without worrying about what the internet will say; because he's thought about it maticulously and objectively(most of the time) ;p I really appreciate all the time and effort he's put in, he makes me laugh too hard some times.



  • Updated the OP for Episode 5!



  • Cool to see he got an episode out so quickly after E3. Loved his takeaways and in particular the part about conference speak. It frustrates me so much and it's one of the reasons that I always tend to dislike the Microsoft conferences.

    These bonus bits get me every single time.



  • Great E3 episode.. I think he took a page from John Oliver for the bonus bit this week.. that must have taken a long time to put together!



  • I think it is interesting that Nintendo spun a weakness into a strength, if you could call it that. They only had on game going for them. It was Zelda, so that's all they showed.

    I have to say that I'm not a Zelda fan since N64 days, so when I look at Zelda and pit it against Horizon, God of War, Days Gone, and all those open world games that are definitely not going to Wii U or NX, I just see it literally has X number of games versus 1 Zelda. I think people rate Nintendo's showing really highly, but I would personally rate it 1/10 because the lack of games is a poor showing. It doesn't matter if Zelda is a really quality game because Sony has dozens of quality games, or, imo, better quality games than Nintendo.

    So I staunchly disagree that Nintendo did a good job, because a good job means having more than one worthwhile console release a year.



  • @Whoaness I get where you're coming from, but I still think Nintendo did well. To me, so long as the NX is going to stay projected for Spring 2017, it seems that they had the foresight to not show the NX in the midst of all of this Scorpio/Neo news, and staying out of all the inevitable console comparisons throughout all of E3. My guess is that they're essentially done with making Wii U games and have shifted focus towards NX games, but are holding back on those for when they do officially announce the NX.

    I know that I'm looking on the optimistic side of things, and you can definitely view it as that they're just not ready in the slightest, but that's how I see it at least. They had the guts just give people one long demo into their most Nintendo anticipated game (being cross-platform), and not divulge in showing everything they have planned for next year while everyone is talking about the upgraded consoles. Plus, people seem to have loved the Zelda demo and are able to call it quality, and I think pulling off a one-game-show counts for something.

    But still, I see your point since it is essentially quality vs. a quantity of quality at this point, Playstation definitely had a great lineup that I'm also pumped for. I just like to play the optimist when it comes to Nintendo.

    We wouldn't let off Sony or Microsoft for the same reason. If they are purposefully making a game lineup drought to save games for their next console, we'd grill them badly.

    There's also no reason to save announcements. Sony announces games that probably won't show up for years. It doesn't matter. For Sony, specifically, there are always exclusive games throughout the year for every year, so they can announce games far into the future to get us excited. We don't need a reminder of what games are coming like what Microsoft does. Nintendo could show off all of their games for NX at E3 and we would be happier. The thing is, do they even have games other than Zelda? I really don't think they resolved their third party issue, so I remain skeptical that Nintendo has games ready.



  • I'm convinced that blender box means something.
