    Aloha
    MightVision

    ps: my name is MightVision…. mightVISION…. i am the man that the gunnars deserve, not the one they need. So i will wear them, because i can take them, because i am not a hero.
    I am a loud neighbor, a almost blind gamer,… i am the Dar…. oh i mean… MightVision!

  3. i wanna wear it while i playing PWI , QQ i think i should have something to protect my eyes since my gaming time is 14 hurs+ a day

  4. I will use them while i work at night time getting trash, while driving a golf cart. I will be fighting the trash monster that comes at night no joke! I will provide a Pic!

  5. I would wear them at work, I’m sick of headaches, and maybe they will actually work. Of course when I am gaming, and don’t know, if I like them I will wear them all time, they actually look nice, I like them ๐Ÿ˜€ (this is the real thing)
    For the funny one: I would wear them while I sleep so I can see my dreams better :))

  6. Hey Magicman !

    Just wondering if you and the cast were out of Sandy’s path.

    Don’t quote me on this , but for some reason i thought you lived in NJ.

    To the Community & The Host’s, my heart goe’s out to all of you that are suffering through this ordeal.

    Hopefully see alot of you back here again soon.

    Peace

    Inflictious

    • I am East Coast and Sandy made life exciting this week. Thank you for your well wishes. We are all fine and not as impacted as those in NY/NJ are.
      Thanks!

  7. I played Flyff Philippines a couple of years ago, they where running this event about Nescafe where you collect the ingredients (coffee, milk, sugar, etc) to create a Nescafe coffee that gives you a buff. I don’t know if they are paid for it or not but I did earn a lot of in-game currency for selling the ingredients.

  8. I used to be a gamer like you, but then i took some Gunnar Glasses to the face.
    -Where would i be wearing them?
    -While gaming and doing free time stuff like cinemas etc.

  9. I would wear them while sleeping, going to college (even in winter), dancing, going to my own wedding and of course for gaming…

  10. I would wear them when I go to meet my girlfriend’s parents for the first time. Cause you know, they have to know I’m a committed gamer!

  11. I would be willing to wear them on The back of my head while I wear all of my clothes backwards and walk around on the streets in my local big city of Fort Worth, I would also get a few photos with some random passerby

  12. I would build an big fat pumpkin and gonna play there computer with the an energy transformator, which gets energy from the pumpkin. Then I’m gonna play with my new cool glasses ^^

  13. I๏ปฟ am willing to wear them in a night club , in a hot tub with my girlfriend.. Pretty much everywhere I go. Because I can’t buy gunnars in my country,,,

  14. I would wear them in the gay bar ( but i’d never go to the gay bars ) and also on the parties. ๐Ÿ™‚ MagicMan i love your show and i would reaaaaaaally need those glasses ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I’d wear that to school and go up to a random person and say: “‘I’m a gamer” (take off glasses) “A MMOBomb gamer.” And hopefully I’ll be able to get one of my friends to play that YEAHHHHHHHHHHH song-part-thingy as I walk away. XD

  16. Magicman About ad supported gaming. Square Enix has made it so you can play Hitman: blood money with ad support. The more ads you watch the more time you get to play the game. http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/29/square-enix-coreonline-offers-top-tier-games-on-the-web-for-free/

    I tried it, it worked pretty well and its easy to “fake it”. I was basically watching TV and played some ads, didn’t even watch any of them and racked up a couple hours of game play. Easy. That’s could be seen as a problem to advertisers when doing this, the game is free because of eyeballs watching the ads and there isn’t a way (unless they make you have your camera on while watching the ads) to prove you watched them.

    I came up with another way to ad support games, but i won’t get into it because I hope to develop it sometime.

    • LMAO , that is to awsome , Forget F2P, Foget B2P, Forget P2W &Forget Sub’s

      We now have the Next Big Thing .. Watch to Play – W2P !

      Definately W2P for the Win !!!!

      Inflictious

  17. hey magic the gunner glasses sooo WTF is your day job just asking? any is MMOBOMB a company or just a small site and youtube channel.

  18. I’ll wear them while eating a turkey leg, and being spun around in a giant pumpkin/gyroscope as the entire world watches me while spinning away from slenderman

    Because in my dreams is the most important place to wear them shows they’re always on my mind like my PC

  19. Thanks for the Show.

    About ad’s in gaming, Maiet has sorta done this in Gunz, When they added the weapon shop map they added a few poster’s of thier upcoming game RaiderZ… When i first seen it in the game thats when i started doing research on RaiderZ, Year’s before it was released into a beta stage.

    Inflictious

    • One more thing, About those glasses. I personnaly would not want them.

      Why : They would not fit over my 3D glasses.And at 49$ for a pair of 3D,That;s just where my gaming has gone to now.
      I only added this for there areAlot of F2P game’s going 3D or already have it implied in the programming.
      Grabbing Tridef’s trial 14 day, then reactivating when expired is 3D cheap and easy.

      But good to see you all are starting to do give away’s, This just ain’t for me even though i am not state side. Eh !

      Inflictious

  20. I would wear these glasses in the woman’s bathroom at a crowded mall.
    Though it may sound creepy, this would be the creepiest thing I would ever do.

  21. I been in mmobomb giveaways incluiding beta keys , since the first one ever made , i never get a shit , its only for the people from the state mmobomb its been founded , so doesnt worth even try it lol..

    BUT , good luck to all ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Ah! I’ve been wanting a pair of Gunnars so desperately!
    I’d be willing to wear them while watching more MMOBomb videos bahahah.

  23. Iโ€™m willing to wear my gunnarsโ€ฆ.. everywhere the shower bed while beasting on games swimming during sex while I drive on top of the house while I practice my dragon shouts I would wear them while I fly even in a fight against friza I owuld go super sayian with my gunnars on I would never take them off even while I snipe my enemy’s from 6 miles away BOOM HEAD SHOT !!!! GUNNARS MORE THEN SHADES THERE A LIFE STYLE ; )

  24. I’d wear it around my school during class and act like Oprah saying, “YOU GET A GUNNARS AND YOU GET A GUNNARS… Sike” And get detention. ._. Like last time.

  25. If I become a sniper in the army, I’ll be sure to wear those glasses. They might make a terrorist’s day end very badly.

  26. I would Were Them in a Public Bathroom on my bare feet lol sounds weird but im up for anything…. MagicMan great job on the show .. MMOBOMB FTW

  27. Oh yeah…speaking of lawsuits, was the one between En Masse Entertainment/Bluehole Studio & NCsoft resolved? There’s sketchy notes about people being guilty and all, but I’m not sure whether that lawsuit has been done and dusted.

    About ads in games, I do think it could be a viable complementary way of earning revenue besides cash shops, but perhaps only when logging in, logging out & maybe even in loading screens (though the latter would definitely be pushing it).

  28. They expect me to take it all off, but I’d wear them in a massage parlor. Knowing how good I’d look in them, I am sure they will understand why I can’t take them off.

  29. in true fortune cookie fashion… I’d wear my gunnars in bed while playing 3DS, because thats totally hard core gaming right?

  30. I would wear them coming out of the sewers manhole with a PS3 controller in one hand….. ^_^

    (favorite game backwards? rebmoB tneliS )

  31. im willing to wear my gunnars at a feminin underwear shop, so i can have the truth in-depth vision… however, i would have to wear a tuxedo and look like some company CEO, otherwise i would look like a perv and that’s not the point at all…

  32. Hey Magicman. Another great episode. Its good to see you staying busy making content for all us junkies!

    For the contest: I’m willing to truck surf wearing the Gunnars on one of my 16′ box trucks! I’m sure my employees would love to get a chance to throw me off while doing it, so I will have to make my choice of drivers carefully lol.

    Question: What are your thoughts on gamer ADD in the current market? Seems every bounces around a lot without any loyalty to one game.

    RAWRRRRR

    • Ye I think that is a really good question as well, in the F2P market people to seem to bounce around from game to game bc all they have to do is download it without any commitments. And then they tend to give games bad reviews bc they didnt get to any of the good stuff, new form of trolling I guess -_-

  33. There are alot of games that uses ad’s to give free cashshop coins/money to players that have to watch, click or register on these ad’s.

    • I love that you are the one to do this lmao.

      I agree that ad based games could be a bad move. I for one am not okay with joining a game and creating my Orc Barbarian fighting off trolls and on my way back to town I get a loading screen that shows me a 30 second commercial about McDonalds. I do however believe that it wouldn’t be as big of a deal if it only showed it upon logging in or even upon choosing your character. I just think that if you are going to make a game with it’s own, fantasy based, lore you should try to stay to that lore.

      On another note, I could see it on some of the modern based games. Like if Call of Duty decided to create a F2P model of their Modern Warfare series you could make a map where you run through a city with billboards covered in mountain dew and monster energy drink or even the gunnar glasses. Maybe even on a subway level with posters around for other games they have released that are B2P or P2P. I wouldn’t throw the idea out just yet.

      If they did implement ads in a fantasy world however, how do you think they would go about it if it were as simple as a picture ad and not exactly video commercials?

      As always keep up the great work I love watching your show and visiting the website. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Magicman, don’t even….

        As far as ad-supported F2P games, they are already doing that, mostly in browser-based games I think. When I used to play Quake Live, I always had to sit through a Verizon(?) ad before every match. I guess Id was banking on its nostalgia factor to ensure eyeballs on the screen. As for it being successful…who knows? The ironic part is, you can pay to NOT see the ads.

        Lastly, “I wear my Gunnars at night…”

        Yeah, I’m old…

        • … so I can, so I can
          watch WoW weave and breath story lines~

          lmao, my dad is addicted to old music so yeah…… I am only 19 though (soon to be 20 D:)

          • ^^ you get cake (no beer though)

            “And I wear my Gunnars at night
            so I can so I can
            keep track of the dailies in my eyes”
