Giant Bomb News


So I Heard You Wanted A Nintendo Downloads Podcast...

OK. Let's do it.

If you've been following along on the Giant Bombcast, then you know that the rest of those jerks made a command decision to totally cut the WiiWare and DSiWare portions of the program. This is the same portion that was nominated for an award last year. Last time I checked, "Vinny saying curse words' didn't get nominated for jack nothing! "Brad spoiling games?" Nada! Zip! And don't even get me started on the "Ryan mispronouncing game names" portion of the show.
But I'm not going to complain. I'm going to do something about it. And so, it's my great pleasure to introduce you to the rogue operation I've spent upwards of 35 minutes putting together:

If you'd like to subscribe to this obviously superior podcast, the RSS feed for it is RIGHT HERE. THROW DOWN THE SHACKLES OF YOUR OPPRESSORS AND LET FREEDROM REIGN! 
Next week I'm hoping to get a special guest on the show, but I don't want to spoil it! Stay tuned, WiiWare and DSiWare faithful! Stay tuned.

Hell yes! Love the artwork - obviously superior I might add.

Needs elevator music.

Seriously, this might be the one cause worth supporting in this entire world. Screw the whales, get DSi Ware back on the cast! 
Looks like you've proved there's plenty of support for that extra twenty minutes Jeff :D

I think Jeff has mind jacked me

Jeff reading the Wii Ware and DSi Ware stuff by himself is quite boring. This awesome section needs to get back on the Bombcast.

this is pretty much the best thing

I think this is a good idea, but I really think you need a duder or two to play off. It really help the Gherstmagic work :)

I just hope this doesn't go back into the bombcast. I always had to fast forward through that part. It was horrible.

Again: YES.

I think you need to drag someone else on the podcast to suffer with you. The best part of the Wii-Ware section was having a group of people laughing at the stupid descriptions.
Still, it's nice to see it alive.

This is a thing?  This actually happened?  An entire separate podcast for the download readings!? 
...I have no words for the hilarity of this.   
I love it.

I disagree, the whole idea of a guy sitting alone in a room talking about nintendo downloadable releases and sighing every other minute makes this much funnier.

I haven't read the rest of the comments pages, but I'm assuming I'm at least the 1000th person to agree with this.

I'm not gonna lie... this is AMAZING!

I need to throw my hat in for this being the greatest addition to giantbomb since TNT.  Keep it up.
I need to express my desire to hear the WiiWare channel music in the background. 

Posted by ShaunassNZ

Can we get this on iTunes soon?

Posted by Pop

holy crap I didn't even know there was an episode 1 hahaha xD. I need to listen to both of them.

best thing ever

Gnarly.  But where is the music?  It was integral to the experience.

How the fuck did they remove this from the podcast this is media GOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by DG991



Bring this back.

Posted by Hailinel

Bring this back.

The entertainment value is gone. Why people thought Jeff reading game descriptions in super slow motion was funny in the first place, I don't know.

That's the beauty of comedy duder. The entertainment value isn't gone, you just don't find it funny anymore. I do.

It could be incorporated back into the bombcast at least. Doesn't need it's own cast, that's true.

... I found this reeeeeeeeeally late.

... I found this reeeeeeeeeally late.

Well they really are just as bad as they ever were (I mean seriously "Candy Match 3" was released on a non-open platform) so if they ever wanted to bring them back I'm sure the good people at Noooooooo would be happy to produce My Notebook: Ebony and Ivory or something for the occasion.

Posted by TheManWithNoPlan

Dammit! I thought Jeff was finally bringing this back. Just a necro...

Posted by villainy

How dare you resurrect this and get everyone's hopes up :(

Hey let's not necro super old threads. Hey let's not see a resurrected thread and then post on it how we wish it wasn't resurrected.
