They haven't had too many british dudes on the bombcast, and the ones they have had are mostly developers. Anyone else like to hear him have a discussion with the GB crew?

#2 Posted by Animasta (14713 posts) -

god no

(also technically he is a developer)

#3 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

They haven't had any real interaction before so no.

#4 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

No thanks. Vastly different type of reviewer. His reviews are as much entertainment as information.

#5 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

He's also her in Australia last I heard, so that would probably add some difficulty.

Mayhaps he'll wind up on a podcast if they come out here for PAX?

#6 Posted by Nightriff (5156 posts) -

No....I like his videos but I wouldn't want to hear him talk with the GB crew for a whole Bombcast

#7 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2056 posts) -

Just put Gary Whitta on the podcast.

#8 Posted by Little_Socrates (5683 posts) -

I'd listen to it if Croshaw didn't show up "in character" and just had a regular Bombcast conversation. But I'm certainly not clamoring for it.

I love Yahtzee and would really enjoy hearing him on the Bombcast, but I doubt that is gonna happen.

E3 2013.

After Alex Rigopulos, no one is off the table for an E3 podcast.

Where's the Seanbaby collab?

#12 Posted by impartialgecko (1631 posts) -

I like Yahtzee, but he's at his best when he's behind the production of his videos. I doubt whether he'd be nearly as entertaining without his script. Anyway him and the GB crew are very different types of reviewers, he wouldn't get along with Patrick for one.

Let's have TotalBiscuit and the Yogscast on as well while we're at it.

Now i want Yahtzee in it just to hear him and Patrick debating.

This is an idea that does not appeal to me in the slightest.

#16 Posted by pyromagnestir (4327 posts) -

I'd listen to it. But then I listen to every bombcast so that isn't saying much. But I'm sure he'd be fine. As an aside, anyone else think the quality of his video's dropped significantly when he stopped picking songs relevant to the game and instead got a proper theme song? The songs really added something extra, for me. Now I just mute the theme until the talking starts.

He actually has done a lot of "straight" writing before his Yahtzee thing took off.

He wrote (writes?) for Hyper and PC Powerplay in Australia (prominent magazines when magazines were actually prominent) for several years in a relatively straight role. He's also a pretty nice dude based upon my singular meeting with him many years ago.

sometime between Racketboy and HuguesJohnson

#19 Edited by LaszloKovacs (1152 posts) -

No thanks.

If he were to appear as himself instead of his "Yahtzee" persona, I might be interested, but I doubt that would happen. I doubt that's what Yahtzee fans want from him anyway.

#23 Posted by Jrinswand (1711 posts) -

Absolutely not. I got enough of Mr. Yahtzee like 3 years ago, when his shit was still relevant.

#24 Posted by ToTheNines (755 posts) -

The people that say no to this idea are laughable, the people that think this could happen are even more laughable.

If this does happen someday, I'll pour ketchup all over this post and eat it.

#25 Edited by believer258 (11999 posts) -

Nah, I don't think so. Besides, Ryan is enough of an asshole to go around.

...

...

...that didn't come out quite right.

(Sidenote: I should probably mention that I do not, in fact, dislike Ryan. He's awesome.)

EDIT: All right, I feel I should give a serious-faced answer. Look, I really like the Bombcast, and I really like Yatzhee, but they would go together about as well as gravy biscuits and bananas. Yatzhee has said before that, while his schtick is for entertainment, he also doesn't express opinions that he doesn't have. They may be exaggerated, but he doesn't seem to think along the same lines as the Bomb crew, not even close, and I think they'd walk away from that podcast slightly annoyed at each other. I just wouldn't bet on it being a good mix.

That guy is still around bitching about how old obscure computer games are better then the games of today?

If that's true then I would actually maybe enjoy hearing the discourse between him and the crew.

They've never spoken about him ever. Also he sucks.

So very little of both?  I kid, I kid.
 
But seriously, I doubt someone is going to fly out from Australia just to appear on a podcast.
#30 Posted by DocPorpoise (113 posts) -

it has potential to be interesting. has there ever been any mention by a GB dude about him, veiled or otherwise?

#31 Posted by Rowr (5824 posts) -

im not sure how that would "gel"

Giantbomb crew are ridiculously American.

#32 Posted by D_W (1179 posts) -

Yahtzee is a bit strange, as he doesn't like to be referred to by his "real" name for whatever reason. Having him on one of the E3 podcast would be interesting as he's actually fairly laid back outside of Zero Punctuation and has a sense of humor not altogether dissimilar than the Bomb Squads (go check out his LPs on the youtube. They're pretty damn funny in an almost ER way. Though the commentary and game play are recorded separate.)
 
Personally I'd rather see him and the Game Station crew do something together.

#37 Posted by Dalai (7042 posts) -

He should be in every Bombcast, but I haven't listened to the Bombcast in a few years so I'm in favor of it clearly to piss off a lot of you.

#38 Posted by CornBREDX (5631 posts) -

This would be my shortest response if not for this starting sentence. 
No. Thank you for coming. 
 
@Dalai: This though I am ok with. =)

#39 Edited by SathingtonWaltz (2053 posts) -

Er.. no. Maybe I'm biased because I've met the guy in person but I really don't care for much of anything he ever has to say. I don't even know how he can say that gaming is his hobby when he doesn't even enjoy 90% of the games he actually plays.

They have a Brittish dude on every week. His name is Brad.

Also, of the very few people I might like to see guesting on the Bombcast, sure, Ben Croshaw would be one.

#42 Posted by bchampnd (108 posts) -

I wouldn't mind if Yahtzee made a guest appearance on a Bombcast but I'm not sure how well it would go. Real time discussion and debate is a very different format from what he usually does. There are some strong personalities on the Bombcast so I could see certain crew members jumping all over something he says without giving him a chance to defend his point. I'm not saying they shouldn't call him out on things - because that's part of what makes the crew great is that they are quick to point out bullshit - but I'd just worry that the force and tone with which they do so might end any meaningful dialogue. If the crew is in a light-hearted, joking around mood it could be great. If they're feeling snippy, it could be a disaster.
