These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Growing the Beard: Lampshaded down to referencing TNG in the 4/2/2013 Bombcast by an email concerning Patrick's beard growth and the start of the Interview Dump Truck. Brad then name drops the trope by looking up the TV Tropes page on his phone and reading its opening paragraph.
Hilarious in Hindsight: Davis' hatred of the NDX-press is funnier when you realize he brought it on himself. Originally the Nintendo downloads were read on the Giant Bombcast by Ryan with no backing music, eventually they started having the marketplace music, and Ryan got tired of reading the releases and passed the job onto Jeff. In the end the Nintendo downloads were cut to save precious time, leading to Jeff singlehandedly creating the NDX-press and Ryan's anger.
When they suggested that Sega stop trying to appeal to mainstream American audiences with the Yakuza series and just bring the series over in the original Japanese with subtitles, with all the niche-y Japanese quirks intact. Guess what Sega ended up doing?
During the Far Cry 3 QL, they joke that Ubisoft should start integrating their franchises into a single universe and Vinnie remarks that the Abstergo logo should be somewhere in the game. In one of the special pre-order missions, you DO find a folder with the Abstergo logo. There's also this.
A number of things from the Persona 4 Endurance Run have become memetic largely via Jeff and Vinny bringing them up in unrelated Quick Looks and the Podcast. Jeff and Vinny's interpretation of Mysterious Fox has come up a number of times, and hand-to-hand combat characters in magic or power-based games have been referred to as "Chies" on occasion.
#YearOfTheBow for the large showing of bows in 2012's videogames.
From the Big Live Live Show: Live 3, CHINA DON'T CARE, FUCK RYAN DAVIS, and #TEAMBRAD. After Ryan's death, FUCK RYAN DAVIS was changed to LOVE RYAN DAVIS and FUCK, RYAN DAVIS.
"Small Business Man", which comes from the ad skits Jeff and Vinny perform on some 2014 Bombcasts, where Vinny plays as the technology-challenged Small Business Man.
Many sitegoers were less than ecstatic when the crew decided to include intern Matt Kessler in on some of the Quick Looks. It got to the point where he seemed to have gathered quite a hatedom. It's calmed down, but there will always be the one or two people complaining about Kessler's inclusion in just about any video he's featured.
A similar case has been made as Patrick Klepek increased in prominence.
The site was purchased by CBS Interactive and put under the same leadership as the Gamespot site most of these guys got away from. Naturally, this trope is making the rounds.
