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.

OMG YES! I was hoping something like this would happen! Jeff is the best for doing this on his own.

Fuck yes! Now I now which note pad or clock game is coming out each week.  
High-concept comedy to the max!

Nintendo would sell so many more -ware games if they used this in the download stores.

Oh my God. Yes!

The world is a better place with this podcast in it...
Hopefully you can get the others into this as well.

if this isn't added to the top bar, then this is straight DOWNLOADISM.

Wow.  This is actually a thing.

I like how it sounds like Jeff is in a cave

Posted by NickLott

It's like a pirate radio from inside Bombcast's radio tower. Genius!

I'm glad the nintendo downloads will live on, but its just not the same without the other guys commenting on the games.

Jeff, this is the kind of raw initiative that billionaires are made of!  Top notch stuff.  Very funny.  Love this.

Posted by choffy21

To me, this means Jeff likes describing less-than-decent games in an overly-dramatic tone. And I totally love that.

Awesome to see you doing something with your blog. You need to get the music on it, though!

Posted by Hizang

Boo Yah!

hahaha, this is brilliant! XD 
Does need the WiiWare/DSiWare music, but otherwise love it.

They said that there would never be a gaming podcast better than the bombcast. 
What are they to say now?

Jeffery Gerstmann. I love you, for this. That is all.

Posted by gogisha

I was so worried, but this works out. Great job.

Posted by Kajaah117

As if I couldn't love Giant Bomb any more than I already did. You spoil me, Jeff.

Posted by WEGGLES

Fuck yes! 
Shit goddamned yes! 

Posted by Gunner612

Its just not the same without Vinny and Brad cracking up in the background.

Expect your units to suffer losses under enemy fire.

Jesus Jeff, I didn't think you had it in you but way to fight the powers of oppression.  I want this to spiral into a huge thing and have it be a major part of the weekly Giant Bomb experience. 
Make it happen.

Posted by Kyle

I don't know how Giant Bomb always turns things around like this for me. Read Nintendo downloads on the Bombcast? I hate it. Make an entirely separate podcast for the same purpose? Could not be more on board. I just can't resist absurdity...

What did I tell you, what did I fucking tell you.

I'm literally shaking! Thank you Mr Gerstmann!

Posted by XTraFries

This happened and I no longer have the flu. 
Thank you, Jeff.

@Babylonian:  Thanks, it worked for me too.

Loved this portion of the show, but do you think your voice can take it Jeff?
Posted by sandal_hat

I support this wholeheartedly.

Posted by Trilleong

I'll take the Vinny swearing podcast please.

Posted by albedos_shadow

Goddamnit, I love you so much, Jeff.

Posted by drowsap

What !!! This is an unexpected surprise nice job jeff

Posted by ganjaman

Honestly.  Thank you Jeff, but I do really wish that the crew would be apart of this experiment.  Personally, I really enjoy the reactions from the rest of the podcasters.  Shame, but I absolutely admire your desire to please your audience.  It shows how much you care.  Thanks once more.
