Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

For a lot of sports, as a spectator, it's good to be aware that one's enjoyment can often come down to the specific game you happen to have tuned into that day. One day you can be tuning into an absolute thriller of a soccer game with the goalkeepers getting bombarded all day long, the next day the ...

Re: What Were Your DB10 Highlights?

The whole run was really filled with highlights and good moments. but that surprise hour was really the best moment as everyone lost their minds. It was a surprise, yeah, I didn't think it was going to happen until after the deed had been done... but looking back on it, once the momentum got starte...

Desert Bus Finale Repository

I've had this in a notepad for the past year, and only found the last couple missing videos on Ustream during this year's run (and needed Tally's help on identifying who was holding the controller in DB1; that's a really choppy video). But, now that I have all ten, I present all ten clips of the Des...

Homefront Anti-Misery Raiders [DBX]

Seems this is the place for a Desert Bus-related thing. Okay. So Wednesday night I get around to asking the DB Twitter account about volunteer surveys going out. The response back was that, unfortunately, there likely won't be an open call for on-site volunteers this year. This got expanded on in th...

Re: 18 Games and Counting

Well, it seems now we're on a policy of one-and-done (with a possible exception for Creative). Which means now it's just a matter of keeping track of what's been played. In alphabetical order, and I guess I might as well just update this once a week as needed: Age of Empires 2: HD Edition ARK: Survi...

Re: 18 Games and Counting

Nine weeks in and we haven't repeated a game yet. Despite the 18 slot being crowded around by a lot of the same pool of games every week, given that the cooldown rule only covers four weeks, that's pretty good. But I know the anticipation of the first repeat is building. So because I was curious, I ...

I suppose PPR feedback ought to go here.

Well, it's all the personal streams going on the scrapheap with the exception of Adam's, and he only looks to have kept his on the grounds that they're filming at that time anyway. The first stream of a game does usually turn out to be the best one, so it's not like doing away with streams where you...

It seems, from reading some of the crew's Twitter accounts, that the funeral must have been today.

As far as Paul's comment towards the end, this says that .hope is a TLD up for grabs (the 'free speech' category). So you could, if you wanted, go after desertbus.hope. But TLD's like that cost more than they're probably worth.

I'd argue they did it twice, given Kate and the nope gif. That one wasn't even intentional; it was just Feed Dump being Feed Dump.
