#5 Posted by IBurningStar (2160 posts) -

I want as much as I can get.

#6 Posted by Vinny_Says (5681 posts) -

It's not how long it is, it's how....

#7 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

I prefer the longer podcasts. They're great to listen to while doing something else.

#8 Posted by Red12b (9073 posts) -

quality over quantity, saying that...The 5 hour bombcast from E3 with Eric "Suge" Pope and the Sherlock holmes Sheven was some of the best 5 hours of laughter I have ever had, Jenova Chen duck face

As long as possible.

#10 Posted by Masha2932 (1240 posts) -

The longer the better. The E3 2011 podcasts were some of the best podcasts this year

#11 Posted by ajamafalous (11823 posts) -

Long, and preferably as many tangents as possible.

#12 Posted by Portis (1281 posts) -

Long, with plenty of off-topic banter.

#13 Posted by Redbullet685 (6021 posts) -

Long.

#14 Posted by JayDee (439 posts) -
@ajamafalous: this, fuck boring video game talk
#15 Posted by JJWeatherman (14557 posts) -

You guys seem to all have the Bombcast in mind while answering this question, but maybe I'm wrong. I like the Bombcast long too, but in general, longer isn't better.

A 24 hour long podcast would be amazing. In the final hours we can hear everyone slowly going insane and start speaking in slurred speech. The last few minutes will just be the sound of snoring.

#17 Posted by bartok (2406 posts) -
@Mayu_Zane: Quite a few of the Podcast I listen to like Nobody Likes Onions and Red Bar Radio do marathon shows that usually last 24 hours and it does get pretty insane towards the end.  
I feel like if the content is there and it is funny that Bombcast should go as long as the guys are having fun.  I really have no preference because the July 4th weekend 90 Minute show was just as good as the 2 and 1/2 hour shows.

I like podcasts that go into as much depth as needed on the video games relevant to the period of time which the podcast is released. Long or short doesn't matter so long as they get off their chests what they need to about the games they've played that week and hold nothing back. That usually comes away meaning longer is better, but only if there isn't a freaking hour long talk about something completely off topic at the beginning of the podcast which isn't a review of an energy drink.

#19 Posted by Otacon (2208 posts) -

If it's the bombcast then as long possible, don't really listen to other podcasts

#20 Posted by PenguinDust (12443 posts) -

Longer or shorter than what?  I like them to run a bit over 2 hours but under 3.

#21 Edited by Alphonzo (756 posts) -

It's all about dat girth nahmean
But really, this site has the single most entertaining podcast that I know, so the longer the better

#22 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

Longer podcasts means more chances at awkward jokes, rampant cursing, and Vinny's subtle racist remarks.

#23 Posted by Arath (58 posts) -

In general in regards to the Bombcast I find them too long, I wouldn't mind if they just cut the What have you been playing this week section. It seems redundant and I don't much care for it. I think the Podcasts themselves could be made a little more concise and to the point. I am all for off topic discussion and tangents, my problem is with the regular dead air which is really the result of no drive or focus to the discussion, which means conversations come to an end and nobody has anything to say.
 
I think if they aimed for a 90 minute duration the Podcast would be better for it, but I guess that's just me, I still listen every week regardless I just rarely get to the end, as opposed to a number of other podcasts I listen to.
 
There are exceptions, for example the Game of the year deliberations were excellent, but in general for the Bombcast, shorter would be better.

#24 Posted by DeF (4778 posts) -

As long as the people involved have stuff to say OR are genuinely funny, I prefer longer podcasts. What I dislike are podcasts that force themselves into a 60min format and therefore rush topics or talk about potentially interesting stuff only superficially because of that deadline (sometimes, an hour is totally sufficient, though).

#25 Posted by babblinmule (1262 posts) -

I listen to it on the commute to work and back, so really the longer the better!

#27 Posted by Wildfire570 (719 posts) -

Longer, the podcast is just even better when they go off subject completely and don't talk about video games.

The longer, the better.

#30 Posted by FireBurger (1479 posts) -

Long. It's not like I have to listen to it all at once.

#31 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I lose interest after an hour. So, shorter.

#32 Posted by EpicSteve (6470 posts) -

The ladies like it when the staff gives it to them long.

This. I know why they did it but the 1.5 hour post-E3 podcast just felt too short.

It's pretty rare that I get completely bored by whatever the guys are talking about and I listened to every single second of the 2010 GOTY coverage and this year's E3 coverage.

#36 Posted by Vexxan (4612 posts) -

As for the Bombcast, too much talk not about video games and I lose interest. Sure, it's fun to hear some crazy jokes and listen to what beer Jeff enjoys the most but too much of it and everything just becomes a buzz in my ears.

#37 Posted by Kurtdyoung (1297 posts) -

As long as possible.

#38 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3770 posts) -

I use podcasts to distract myself from the drudgery of work. 
So longer be better. Always.

#39 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -

I never listen and sit down to a whole podcast, I listen in chunks of like 20 miniutes throughout the day, so longer.

#40 Posted by Sparklykiss (1938 posts) -

I listen to a lot of different podcast. My earholes are pretty skanky like that. And I record one with some friends, so I prefer a bit shorter. An hour and a half is usually my limit, but when it's something like the various Whiskey Media podcasts or special event ones (like with E3) they can go on as long as they like. I'll be a week or two behind that way, but I can tolerate that.

TL;DR: Shorter and sweet is nice. Yay variety!

A couples years ago when I had tonnes more free time I was much happier with longer podcasts but now anything over an hour just annoys me unless its especially hilarious.

#42 Posted by Korolev (1694 posts) -

I like all podcasts to be long. I listen to them when I'm doing routine work or waiting for stuff to be finished. Sometimes, during the course of work, I have literally hours and hours to kill - just waiting for things to finish. I can't leave because I need to make sure nothing goes wrong, so I'm stuck there, for hours, waiting for whatever machine I'm working with to finish up. During that time: I listen to podcasts! And the longer the pod-cast, the less time I need to spend fiddling around with my mp3 player.

#43 Posted by Marokai (2792 posts) -

If I love the bombcast, why wouldn't I want as much of it as I could possibly get each week?

#44 Posted by allworkandlowpay (874 posts) -

I want a live-streamed mic in the office at all times.

#45 Posted by Just_an_other_muffin (90 posts) -

The more bombcast I can get, the better.

#46 Posted by Brendan (7670 posts) -

It's not about the quantity...

#47 Posted by DAFTPUNK (1213 posts) -

long

#48 Posted by TekZero (2659 posts) -

Shorter.  I stopped listening to the bombcast because they were too long. I don't have 2-3 hours a day to devote to listening.

The podcast isn't daily. You need 2-3 hours in a week to listen, not in a day.
