Giantbomb.com is a website all about the magic of video games, flight sims and weird fake creepiness. They're best know for their hilarious (and misnamed) quick looks and their podcast the Giant Bombcast.

Now here's your Giant Bomb starting line up.

Jeff Gerstmann
izWB8VolLtlLb.jpg

One of the longest working game reviewers, he worked at Gamespot as their editorial director until he was fired after a controversial review. He co-founded Giant Bomb with Ryan Davis and Dave Snider. He's been in a lot of more mainstream media, such as NPR and Good Morning America as the go to video game expert.

Ryan Davis

Another Gamespot alumni, Ryan quit soon after Jeff was fired and together (with the help of Dave Snider) they made Giant Bomb. He's the host of the Giant Bomcast and the no longer airing Happy Hour. In his free time he enjoys birdwatching and being a narc. He also enjoys calling people while on It's A Small World and making them listen.

Vinny Caravella

Also know as "The Italian Stallion," Vinny is the video editor of Giant Bomb. Known to do things he later regrets, like the casting of bufu and saying certain words. He's the only Giant Bomber with a child, Massimiliano Rex Caravella.

Brad Shoemaker

Brad is a controversial figure on Giant Bomb. Some love him for his amazing singing voice, his quick wit and his ability to go forward in the face of adversity. Others hate him for inability to grasp simple game concepts such as grabbing. He also dies a lot.

Patrick Klepek

The newest and youngest member of Giant Bomb, Patrick is Giant Bomb's press man which gave him his nickname Tricky Scoops. Disliked by the vile pit of scum that is the Giant Bomb forums, we here at SE++ love Scoops. He also may be a rock god or a dubstep ghost.

    Nah Kerbal was better than Rollercoaster. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.

    Best thing in Kerbal is Vinny detachedly counting off the stages like a real ground control guy.

    There's gotta be a bigger, more powerful rocket than those white boosters they were using. I mean what about those big orange ones the space shuttle would be strapped to? That's gotta be in there, right?

    Those are actually fuel tanks, but there was that giant rocket when they tried to make a shuttle.

    It was pretty great even before they started charging for it.

    My first successful orbit ended up with me way overdoing the thrust and inadvertantly stranding my kerbalnauts on a course for the sun.

    All I could do was queue up Space Oddity and watch the planet disappear into the distance.

    That's my rationale for why I don't hate Yosuke, but it's still sucky they gave Yu that line instead of keeping it as Yosuke's.

    kanji's a really well-written character but i think it's problematic that there's really no voice in the story that says that it's okay for him to question his sexual identity

    at best all he gets from anyone is "well I'll be your friend as long as you don't ever remind me that you might be attracted to dudes"

    in the game that can sort of be solved by the player since charlie is such a blank slate, you can just ascribe whatever thoughts or feelings you want to him, and you can just sort of pretend that he's accepting of kanji

    the anime ruins that by having him say homophobic things in a few places

    it makes sense that a bunch of high school kids would be immature about a classmate being gay, but it also made sense for the violent criminals in arkham city to constantly threaten to rape catwoman and call her a bitch, and that didn't make it any less uncomfortable

    On the whole, I really enjoyed the anime.

    But I don't like how it handled Kanji and Naoto.

    maybe i'm just remembering a thing i read on the internet

    but isn't homophobia a pretty culturally entrenched sort of thing in japan? not in a super bigoted DAMN THE GAYS sort of way, but like a "hey man you're gay whatever but gosh i sure hope i'm not gay"

    again maybe i'm just misremembering a thing i read millions of years ago

    Man. Just 20 minutes into this bombcast and it is awesome.

    I hope that when they do the Big Big Show, that it features (at least partly) the gang getting back together. I'd love to see All of Giant Bomb and all of Tested doing something.. with Jamie all pissy in the corner.
