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.

Wait... They were serious about cutting it from the Bombcast? Well, I'm glad I saw this post before I figured that out, otherwise there would have been rage of gargantuan proportions. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, RYAN DAVIS, VINNY CARAVELLA, AND BRAD SHOEMAKER?!

The guy who sent in that letter requesting this to be taken out of the Bombcast is a punk ass bitch. Real Talk.

This is the best podcast in the world. 
I do miss the really over compressed WiiWare/DSiWare store music playing in the background. :(

Just listened to the intro. This is pure genius. Thank you Jeff for letting me know my Subscription money is going towards GREAT things like this. 
And if that sounded sarcastic, it absolutely wasn't.

Best thing ever!!!

I own no Nintendo systems and this is my favorite show segment.

Posted by ganjaman

Also doesn't this somewhat bring back the good old days of early Giant Bomb, or even the Arrow Pointing Down podcasts.  Everything was just done impulsively.  Beautiful

You're a fucking asshole, Jeff.

Fucking amazing. But there's no straightman Ryan to make so much funnier :(

WTF? I gotta listen to this. It can't just be the reading we've been getting right?

Is it weird that i started humming the wii store music in the middle of this?

Posted by Ghost407

So fucking ridiculous, but so fucking awesome!

Posted by BaconGames

Jeff is the best asshole in the world.  I dare anyone to say Giant Bomb isn't the greatest video game website and not be struck in flames and lightning upon such sacrilege!

Nothing stops the Nintendo downloads podcast.

Posted by Demoskinos

Ah, terrific.

Posted by Rox360

Holy crap, that worked out nicely! And I'll be damned, Animal Boxing actually sounds like a product. I ended up hopping on Youtube and looking up the trailer, and ... I don't know how it plays (I suspect poorly what with the control scheme), but I think it looks cool. It's like if someone took Animal Crossing, made the critters slightly less deformed and thew them into some kind of first person Punch-Out. That's a concept I wouldn't mind seeing more of. You could say that game's existance has inspired me to perhaps do something about that at some point in the future.
And that wouldn't have been possible without the.. ND.. X... Wait, what was the name of the podcast again...? Anyway, I owe that to you, Jeff! Well done!

I'm behind this 100%
