    Jeff is kind of the anti-Ryan. That is why they played so well off each other.

    I was listening to old Bombcasts while playing some Civ V, and it is just brutal hearing Ryan talking about playing Watch Dogs and such.

    At least he doesn't have to go to Vegas.

    I "marked as played" all the Bombcasts I was missing from before July.

    I don't think I have it in me to hear them.

    GB has put up some charity Fuck, Ryan Davis shirts with profits going to the widow.

    They're looking into a more family friendly version.

    Edit: They're also looking into a general donation thing, too.

    Aw, I was hoping for a shirt I could wear around at like PAX and stuff.

    I would imagine PAX would be one of the very few socially acceptable situations where you could wear a "FUCK, RYAN DAVIS" shirt.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    Eh, in I would't feel comfortable wearing it, in deference to the fact to not everyone wanting to see that language in a public setting. I'm not going to tell anyone else not to wear that shirt, but for me personally, I'm okay with showing more tact that is probably necessary.

    As is, if I bought that shirt, I'd probably only wear it at the giant bomb panel and nowhere else.

    I like the subtle change from the original Fuck Ryan Davis shirt.

    Newest Bombcast is up
    Bombcast! continues with some bootleg high-pitched music, video games to play when you barely feel like playing video games, and... Dota 2. Yeah, again.

    ...No?

    It's just not as active as the SE++ one

    Maybe you're confused!

    Nobody posted here since tuesday; are you sure you're not getting confused with the Social Entropy thread?

    Yes, I totally got this confused with the SE thread.

    Time to shuffle off hoping no one notices me...

    The new Bombcast is still tough to listen to, but better. They waited an awful long time to talk about video games.

    That's pretty much par for the course. It's not unusual for the first mention of a video game to be nearly an hour in.

    That's why I love Giant Bomb. They're people who love video games and love to talk about video games, but they also talk about all sorts of other things. Makes them seem like real people and not video game information spewing machines.

    They seem to be getting past losing Ryan. Are they still doing Austrailia PAX?

  • Options
    Undead ScottsmanUndead Scottsman Registered User regular
    No, Aus PAX was just going to be Jeff and Ryan anyway, so not much point now.

    As much as they're getting back into things, I can't imagine Jeff could take a trip that was meant to be just him and Ryan at this point.

    Some of my favorite bombcast bits have had nothing to do with video games, like Jeff's stories about his roommate(s), and Patrick's stories about almost getting beat up for jukebox trolling in bars.

    I know that. But this episode was different.. they were audibly hesitant to discuss gaming.

    The DW8 QL was pretty fucking dire

    Mostly just because of the godawful 360 performance issues though, holy shit how did they even release a game in that state

    I took a page out of John Mulaney's life and jukebox troll with What's New Pussycat. According to Mulaney, no one ever says "Why is What's New Pussycat playing over and over", they say "Wow, What's New Pussycat is a way longer song than I remember it being."

    Patrick's "Worth Playing" Quick Look was horribly boring. He's just too dry by himself.

    I love Patrick, but yeah he is probably the least "entertaining" on his own.

    Was wondering why this NCAA QL was so damn long. They're seriously riffing on every single team name and logo? :-P

    Patrick is about the weird and indie. If he keeps that going, he will be fine.

    Heh. Here is a QL of the Pacific Rim video game.

    http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/quick-look-pacific-rim-the-video-game/2300-7702/

    It is a cheap cash-in. Typical.

    They generally don't necessarily do one every week, most weeks but not every week.

    Bombcast is available: http://www.giantbomb.com/podcasts/giant-bombcast-08-20-2013/1600-558/

    For those that didn't know, Patrick and Alex are doing some new video content. I liked the first one they did with the creator Dust: An Elysean Tail.

    I kinda dig the the three man quick looks they've been doing. A lot of them also have Drew piping in from control too.

    In times like these, the GB guys seem to have banded together to do 3.5 man Quick Looks.
