I have been listening to the bombcast and other whiskey media podcasts for a while now and I've been wondering, how come i have never heard of a comic vine and giantbomb collaboration podcast? Like with what Will Smith did in the latest episode, maybe i missed it.

Maybe the giant bomb dudes just aren't into comics much? Occasionally there are videos with them though, especially when there is some type of comic based game coming out.

They've done stuff with Norm from Tested and I assume they've done stuff with Screened (I don't visit either site so I don't know for sure). They are fairly popular compared to Screened and Tested. Screened and Tested are tiny and their staff appearing on the more popular sites helps their sites. Comic Vine does almost as well as Giant Bomb so they don't need the support of GB. They are successful on their own.

liking comics or no, there have been a few videogames based on comic characters over the years. it would be something different i guess ..

Sara has expressed very strong positive opinions about many comic book based video games, but for some reason they've never had her on to talk about games, nor Tony. I guess the thing is that Giant Bomb is the Whiskey site with the largest editorial team, which has only grown this year with the addition of The Klep (my new nickname for Patrick), and as such they don't really need to rely on other Whiskey editors for content. Will Smith's appearance was an anomaly; the Bombcast seems to have become a five man show now, and Vinny was out of town.

Everyone from Screened and Tested have worked on games or in games journalism at some point. All of them also seem to play a fair amount in their free time, giving them things to talk about.

Maybe Ryan is the most knowledgeable of the GB crew about comic books, but the problem is that Tony isn't much of a gamer. What would they talk about? Each side would just talk about what they know: comic books or video games, but not both.

Also, no Babs, please. She's obnoxious.

#9 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4704 posts) -

Because who cares about comic books?

Also I'd really rather not have either of them on the Bombcast, thanks.

#10 Posted by falling_fast (2208 posts) -

the comic vine duo probably don't play many video games.

#11 Posted by PirateNeal (268 posts) -

We all know everyone is just to scared to talk to Sara cause she's a pretty girl.

on a serious note, i would appreciate their feed back on comic based video games. Having either Tony or Sara on a occasional quick look would be really cool I think

#12 Posted by 1p (760 posts) -

I always wondered why they don't have Tony or Sara sit in on those comic book game quick looks.

#13 Posted by Superskrull86 (2 posts) -

Hmm...Good question.

#14 Posted by Dagbiker (6964 posts) -

Ryan and Sarah hate each other.

#15 Posted by AlexW00d (6235 posts) -

I am pretty sure Tony is probably the busiest of any of them, save the engineers. Maybe.

With Brad leaving, I'm going to guess we'll see more guests from other Whiskey sites to try and fill his place.

You almost got me there.

Not sure if serious or just perpetuating meme.

I would guess ...

GB guys are too busy to be on the CV podcast with any regularity - and only Ryan is really up on comics.

GB podcast records late for whatever reason- CV guys, assuming they are invited, would likely want to get home. Also Sarah would likely just get lewd comments and Tony hate - in the comments.

but itll be even harder for comic vine to be on the bombcast because sara is going with brad.

I follow Brad on Twitter and have seen no mention of such a thing. Also, I read through his tweets for the last month, no mention of leaving.

Are you trolling me. Because if you are, you fucking won.

#22 Posted by Jolt92 (1551 posts) -

@Harkat: Seeing that you might be a pretty new member of the site... "Brad is leaving / for ***" is a hilarious meme in the GB community.

I really like Sara and Tony, and I think they'd be an aid in certain quicklooks...but the Bombcast is already huge, no need for guests unless they are from outside Whiskey or subbing for regulars.

In saying that, I'd be happy with Sara featuring in all the Kinect QLs...don't you judge me!

#25 Posted by coakroach (2490 posts) -

Would've been a good idea to bring them on for Arkham City discussion.

#26 Posted by Doomed (196 posts) -

Brad and Sara will be back in 6 months, tops. A wrestling-focused wiki site just isn't what the market is looking for right now. (Why do you think Jeff isn't going with them?)

Shit like this is why they don't go on the Bombcast. People from Giant Bomb would do nothing but bitch.

#30 Posted by SpiritGoat (127 posts) -

Ryan and Vinny just showed up on a January one in 2010, back when they had to podcast underneath the stairs

#31 Posted by deathstriker666 (1337 posts) -

Without Giant bomb there would be no Comic Vine podcast, motherfucker!

#32 Posted by Brackynews (4060 posts) -
Fly that 2006 flag.

Tony's (About) 3 Minute Expert videos are phenomenal. Particularly the editing.

All the Whiskey sites should follow that example should they need bite-size content, but then it wouldn't be quite so special. :)

#33 Posted by solidejake (484 posts) -

Babs loves games! I am her friend on Facebook, and Batman's not the only game she references.

#34 Posted by Seroth (717 posts) -

With the recent release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, it'd be interesting to see some...discussion...thing about the game involving Comic Vine and Giant Bomb. I'd love to know who the hell some of those Marvel characters are, and let's just hear Giant Bomb talk about Capcom stuff. Comic books and video games, yeaaah.

It would be like asking Rorie to sit in on coverage of movie-based games - probably entertaining but kind of a waste of his time.

Sold.

Wait... sorry what were you saying?

Comic Vine didn't create 3ME, Tony "followed the example."

#38 Posted by Brodehouse (9848 posts) -

I don't Tony or Sara feel they have much to contribute, and they don't want to antagonize the rage kids here who will get super pissed that they aren't video game experts.

#39 Posted by harinosho (594 posts) -

Why do i get this feeling Comic Vine is shunned from other whiskey media sites, they seem so..isolated..

Agreed...on both points.

Also, do either of them really play many games anyway? I'm curious as I don't recall either of them even mentioning their gaming habits outside of DCUO earlier this year and a few of the Arkham City-related pieces I believe Tony wrote. There's nothing wrong with that or anything, but if they're going to have a guest on a gaming podcast, I would assume that guest would probably have to know about/play a lot of different games. Meh w/e.

They have mentioned a few games that they're playing. however they normally do it in passing and when they attempt to get into it, they would be cut off buy comic news from G-Man.

This has happened a few times. Im not saying he shouldn't do that. I like how they stay on track. Whiskey Media has a gaming Podcast already, doesn't need another one.

Doesn't mean they should do more collaborations between whiskey media sites. Even more so when the food website comes alive.

Comics and video games, like movies. Don't mix. But cosplay girls...

Nope, the busiest (aside from the engineers) would be Rorie.

Or just anyone that could give another opinion on comics other than Ryan. The Bombcast don't all agree on every game, it'd be nice to have someone else then to at least bounce ideas about comic related games.

I mean weird crashing of ideas and opinion altering happens a dozen times on every Bombcast, and because I'm paying attention there have been questions before that someone with an ear closer to the ground might have been able to answer.
