Drew's a good dude.

What the hell is this thread Drew is the coolest person ever.

#103 Edited by Franstone (1229 posts) -

Yea, what is this blasphemy?
Drew is da shit.

#104 Posted by dopplerganger (84 posts) -

You spelled hilarious wrong.

#105 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1695 posts) -

I literally cannot think of anything about Drew that I don't love. Drew is the man.

#106 Posted by schizogony (988 posts) -

I have never felt an awkward vibe from Drew at all.

#107 Edited by Elyhaym (272 posts) -

Drew is all kinds of awesome! I would not want a Bombcast crew without him.

#108 Posted by johncallahan (730 posts) -

I mean, I could probably find a better way to say this. But if I HAD to try and find something positive out of the tragic loss of Ryan, it would be that Drew has become more prominent on the site. I've always liked Drew and think he fits in real well on the Bombcast. He's more down to earth, kind of the every man. He knows his shit about games, not quite to the level of Jeff, Brad, or Vinny, but that's a good thing. Adds a unique perspective. Plus he usually does the craziest things with his free time. And he had two of the best UPF games, the llama love-sim and the airplane sim. I love Drew.

Honestly my biggest worry is that once the site does get a few new people on board then Drew will kind of go back to being the background guy.

Priceless Drew moment:

Jeff: *Sexual innuendo remark* "See what I did there? Huh? Huhhhh?"

Rest of crew: *various feigned laughter and "Heyooooo!"s*


Drew: I don't get it.

#110 Posted by phantomzxro (1607 posts) -

I enjoy drew very much in any giant bomb content. I would not say awkward but more of a silent confidence in not needing to fill dead air or try too hard to top the more animated cast.

#111 Posted by super2j (2067 posts) -

Drew does fine, I will say that if I had to pick between him and Rorie, I would like Rorie. But again, that does not mean that Drew doesn't deserve to be a full timer, I have no complaints about him.

#112 Edited by AlertTheJ (7 posts) -

It would be so bad if he didn't end every other statement with an upward inflection. Why is everything said like a question??

Also... Why did he go to N.K.? Is he a comrade?

#113 Posted by NorseDudeTR (464 posts) -

Drew is a prince among duders, and I shall hear no argument against it. Also, he’s not awkward, I don‘t even understand where folks get that. Go Drew!

#115 Posted by mems1224 (384 posts) -

Its a lot better than Brad constantly talking about DOTA

What's better is that Brad is the only one who loves Dota and everyone else just kind of smiles and nods when he talks about it.

#117 Posted by TheLastGunslinger (386 posts) -

I enjoy Drew in all of the formats he is delivered to us in.

Haha yea. Everyone is just like, "Uh huh...uh huh...yea...ok....anyways".

Drew is great though, he always has these weird interesting stories to tell.

#119 Edited by DavidMerrick (165 posts) -

Drew can be faintly heard singing something in the latest Bombcast while the duders are talking about the evolution of mobile phones. Anyone have an idea of what it was?

#120 Posted by GodlyOne (153 posts) -

Drew's fantastic on the Bombcast, it's great to see him more comfortable with talking on mic now and it's always funny that most of his references go unnoticed.

#121 Posted by wewantsthering (1652 posts) -

The more Drew the better! Haha. I think it's great that he's finally starting to speak up more. He's younger than the rest too so he gives a different (less jaded) perspective.

#122 Posted by GiantLizardKing (716 posts) -

Drew is easily my favorite millennial

#123 Edited by hi_im_rob (229 posts) -

Drew is awesome. His interest in geo-politics, military tech and simulation games brings something fresh to the podcast.

His face says a thousand words when he glances at the camera when something really stupidhappens on UPF.

#124 Posted by jimmyfenix (3941 posts) -

Drew is good people. Especially on the Bombcast. His one liners are so good.

#125 Edited by Nashvilleskyline (268 posts) -

Drew is the only reason I will keep on listening to the podcast and features of the show. He brings no sarcasm, snarkyness or jadded attitude that has been plaguing the crew for the last year. Tx Drew

#126 Edited by Popogeejo (621 posts) -

@nashvilleskyline: If you can't see some of the snark and sarcasm he's throwing around then that's only because he's subtle about it. Dude is as sarcastic as any of them in his way.

#127 Edited by MeatSim (11003 posts) -

He never really came off as awkward to me. He's just more mild mannered then everyone else on the Bombcast and he has a great deadpan sense of humor.

#128 Posted by Foggen (941 posts) -

Drew comes off as a super interesting and confident dude with a unique and fascinating perspective. I think he's both a better fit and a more interesting perspective to have on the podcast than Patrick..

#129 Edited by Corvak (1312 posts) -

He's a good counter for when Jeff gets stuck in review mode :P

#130 Posted by phantomzxro (1607 posts) -

I enjoy awkward drew very much. It mixes the dynamic up when you have everyone else being chill or funny.

#131 Posted by 8bitBaldSpot (10 posts) -

Drew is great! I wish I had half the hobbies and interests that Duder has. He ain't akward, he's just Drew.

#132 Posted by Itwongo (1540 posts) -

I think Drew's great

#133 Posted by believer258 (12964 posts) -

He isn't awkward if anything he has gotten better on the mic and in front of the camera since this last summer. Him and Vinny were made for each other. If drew ever moved on before GB dissolves Id be extremely disappointed.

What if... uh... what if Vinny sort of moved on?

Of the many adjectives I could use to describe Drew, "awkward" is not one of them. "Quiet", yes, perhaps "reserved", but not "awkward".

#134 Posted by vocalcannibal (221 posts) -

Drew acts like he could secretly also be a famous Evel Knievel-style stuntman.

I'm cool with that. I don't know how not to be cool with that.

#135 Edited by Sen0r_Awes0me (125 posts) -

They are all showmen and Drew's shows might be the most mysterious of all ;)

#136 Posted by thewizard05 (9 posts) -

@jiggajoe14: "modern day Chuck Norris but more awesome" That is perfect. Drew and I are the same age. So sometimes I feel like I would be asking the same questions he does. Also, I think he proved himself when he said "that's un404fortunate"

#137 Posted by Relkin (220 posts) -

I don't think hes awkward. Less talkative than the rest I suppose, but not awkward.

#138 Posted by pweidman (2446 posts) -

Drew is a shining star and an awesome addition to the Bombcast.

#139 Posted by DavidMerrick (165 posts) -

It's funny, without Jeff on the show for this week's Bombcast, Drew is a lot more talkative and assertive.

That's right.

Drew is being oppressed.

#140 Posted by ZmillA (2352 posts) -

I don't think awkward is the right word. I'd say he's an understandable level of reserved given the company he his conversing with. Drew is a producer and a producer knows to let the talent shine. I think Drew purposefully tries to play the accompanying role, perhaps to a detriment to himself.

I think these character examination threads are way more awkward than Drew is.

#141 Edited by Substance_D (149 posts) -

Drew in general is underrated in general. I don't think many users realize how crucial he is to keeping everything running at Giant Bomb in regards to the video content, especially now that Vinny is in New York. I would listen to the podcast if it was only him talking, and I'd watch UPF if it was just him playing flight sims the whole time.

Also, I totally agree with @mocbucket62. He's just as awkward as anyone else who works at Giant Bomb. Everyone's awkward in their own ways.

#142 Posted by Naoiko (706 posts) -

I love when Drew is on the podcast. He reminds me of some of the people I hang out with.

#143 Posted by ShadowSwordmaster (667 posts) -

Drew is on the same level of awkwardness as everyone else there.

#144 Posted by BongChilla (268 posts) -

These threads are weird. Who are we to analyze the staff like this?

I also don't like how people simply state what goes on at Giantbomb as fact even though they have as much access to that info as any other user of this site (outside of the staff and possibly the mods). Drew may be the cornerstone of the site or just simply a piece, how the hell should I know and you guys don't know either so please stop stating that as fact. There is a lot of this in those complaining threads about the site also and it's always botherd me.

#145 Posted by decko5 (181 posts) -

Drew is the best person outside of GiantBomb East.

#146 Posted by ShorefireMS (11 posts) -

Drew is awesome. Fact.
