    There should really be more GB radio shows.

    Or a special sim podcast with just Dave, Drew and Vinny.

    God, yes. I love it when Dave is on the podcast, like this week. And those quick looks of ridiculous simulation games with the three of them are always amazing.

    I've fallen a few weeks behind on Weekend Confirmed somehow even though it's part of my daily commute podcast triumvirate of the Bombcast, This is Only a Test, and Weekend Confirmed. I'll probably catch up on Weekend Confirmed while I level an alt or run daylies on my main in SWTOR. That said, Weekend Confirmed is my least favorite of the three, and more often then not if I haven't finished an episode by the time the next Bombcast comes out I don't finish it.

    Speaking of SWTOR, I've been listening to and catching up on the old episodes of Startalk and The Smartest Man in the World while I've been playing and they're both great. I've also stuck with The Smoking Tire podcast, and now that they've stopped talking about smoking pot and gotten straight to talking about cars and general non-directly-car-related topics it's it's way to being really good.

    Interesting. I thought more people would be annoyed by Cannata than Lee. What makes Giant Bomb's podcast so good? (I'm not near a place where I can sit and listen to it at the moment)

    Here's a few choice clips for when you can listen to some of their stuff, sort of picked at random:

    I hate to sound sound like some prick with a weird sense of entitlement about these free podcasts, but honestly you'd think Giantbomb could have waited to have the "Mass Effect 3 podcast" at some point when they can, you know, talk about Mass Effect 3.

    Pretty sure the next 2 bombcasts will be talking about it for a while.

    I've tried giving Idle Thumbs a chance, but I think I heard some clips once or twice and it didn't hook me.

    Care to provide some clips?

    I've tried to listen too, since everyone loves it so much, but it's tough listening to them talk about games that came out four years ago. I figure if I can get into it and get to know the personalities then it won't matter so much, since I'm sure I could listen to old episodes of the Brodeo and still enjoy them, but it's getting over that initial hump that's the problem.

    While not strictly video game podcast I have been listening to This week in Geek for a long time

    http://thisweekingeek.net/

    It's basically 4 guys talking about geeky news from the past week as well as topic shows about everything from Video games, to Star Trek to Junk Food.

    One of the guys does his own video game review podcast review a day where he takes 1 game a day (more or less) and discusses it

    Ugh, Weekend Confirmed is awful. I listen to a lot of podcasts, but that one got the cut months ago. The Whiskey Media podcasts are my favorite, but I still torture myself with Rebel FM every week.

    Ehhhhhhhh

    I mean, the Bombcast is basically the highlight of my week, but Behind the Screened Door...Rorie is great but I really hate Alex Navarro. If I saw him I'd punch him, no lie. He's a total ass.

  • AntihippyAntihippy regular Registered User regular
    I don't think he's a total ass, but he is very snarky and cynical, which could rub somebody the wrong way.

    His writing is very good though.

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow regular Registered User regular
    I really prefer his writing style when he's doing game reviews instead of film

    Less of his personality seems to seep through somehow

  • AntihippyAntihippy regular Registered User regular
    I actually do really like how his personality seeps into his writing.

    I think him, matt and brad are the only writers/reviewers at whiskey media whose writing style flows really naturally. The other's always felt a little bit awkward when reading.

    Oh, pish posh. You wouldn't punch him, just like you wouldn't punch any other internet personality if you met them. I've seen/met Alex Navarro a few times now, and he's never been anything other than cordial.

    Also, his articles are the best on GB. Very Onion-esque, if they weren't real.

    I really don't like how Giant Bombcast and 8-4 Play just joked and glossed over about how much of a douche Phil Fish was and the reason for this was that he was their friend. Does anyone really think they'd have the same reaction to that incident if it were someone they didn't know saying that shit?

    So does anyone here bother with Geekbox Radio anymore? I can't remember if I posted about it in here but I got really sick of them about a year ago, probably because both Fitch's are idiots, and I was wondering if they'd gotten any better.

    I thought that the Bombcast was recorded before that happened? And they did mention that he's kind of an asshole. It's annoying that they didn't have the usual content on the site this week, but didn't do any GDC podcasts either. Those are usually really good.

    Man, I haven't listened to the Geekbox in more than a year. It got insufferable after a while.

    If it helps, Alex Navarro just wrote on his twitter what I had been thinking this whole time, that Phil Fish needs to ship a fucking game before he starts saying anything to anyone about anything games-related.

    I still listen to the Geekbox for some reason. It'll be the first to go when I need less podcasts to keep me occupied during my long commutes, though. Adam Fitch needs to shut the hell up and think about what he's saying. Or just shut up. I did kind of enjoy the one where both Fitches were on at the same time, though.

    It's probably been a year since I quit listening to Rebel FM and I remain satisfied with that decision.

    They joked about it at the very beginning of the Bombcast, with Patrick sarcastically calling Fish racist and a hipster but that was about it. I'm pretty sure they never called him an asshole, seeing as he's their friend and was hanging out with them at GDC.

    That sounds about right. It's funny how each brother contrasts the other and yet they both come across really poorly in podcast form. I guess if you combined the two of them together you'd actually end up with a functional person.

    It's possible that they agreed with Fish, you know, as I do as well

    He wasn't being racist or anything like some people are claiming, he was asked what he thought of Japanese games nowadays, and said their games fucking suck

    I haven't played a decent Japanese game myself since...I think Street Fighter IV and its iterations are the last I gave a shit about. I find their games industry to be completely soulless and lacking innovation. Nintendo is in the shitter quality-of-games-wise as far as I'm concerned and has been since the GameCube, Dark Souls is awful and I don't really care how many people want to tell me the contrary, anything out of Capcom other than SF has been a horrible mess (Dead Rising, Monster Hunter games, anything Resident Evil-related), Square-Enix hasn't put out anything decent on their Eastern side in years.

    It's telling to me that in the Japanese games that seem to offer unique experiences, the gameplay is never the reason why. Sure, check out Shadows of the Damned or Deadly Premonition or Catherine or 999 or Nier - all intriguing and, conceptually, I'd say they're at least good tries, but the gameplay in all of them is roundly terrible. I'm looking forward to Lollipop Chainsaw myself, but purely from a stylistic standpoint; everything I've seen of the gameplay so far looks as shallow and creatively bankrupt as No More Heroes did.

    P.S. At the same event, Inafune said basically the same damn thing as Fish did, he just wasn't so blunt about it and so no one jumped down his throat. Maybe there's something to be said for tact or presentation, but his point was valid.

    Fair enough, I'm just offering that up as a reason as to why it was "glossed over" (because it was a non-issue)

  • Local H JayLocal H Jay regular Registered User regular
    he's free to feel how he wants about japanese games and answer questions how he wants, and i'm free to continue to not care what he says or does. he hasn't released a single game ever, but talks like he knows things. clearly he has never contained an ounce of professionalism and he comes across like a hack because of this. phil fish shouldn't even be reaping the rewards of publicity when all he has done is A) spent years making the same game and B) said slightly controversial things. if anything he deserves whatever scorn he has drawn so he can get some humility.

    and fez looks boring

    Seems a bit overblown to me.

    He was rude at first but from the reports from the people who are over there he apologised in person immediately and expanded his argument a bit more than "your games suck".

    I guess he was an ass on twitter, but people on the internet seemed to have taken only part of the story and ran away with it.

    I don't know what it is about Bombcast. The episode I listened to just didn't hook me. I'll give it another chance this week, I got a long solo road trip coming up so I'll throw it on the iPod. I almost want to believe that I'm simply just wrong, given that not one person has defended Weekend Confirmed against Bombcast. I really enjoy Jeff Cannata, and I find Garnett Lee entertaining.

    Brad is clearly gone, Vinny has at least dipped his feet into it because he's giving Brad renovation tips and the others to at least some degree.

    Although last night Brad's game apparently crashed while it was saving, losing all progress he had made that day. He's not sure if he wants to go back to it now.

    That DayZ/Minecraft video was depressing. You could really tell Vinny was getting discouraged after all the bandit deaths, disconnections, bugs, and servers being full.

    What did everyone think of Adam Sessler on this week's Bombcast?
