he doesn't play enough new games and now he seems to be on the friday show most weeks we get to see more of him.
On the bombcast it would be like
"so, what have you been playing, Drew?"
"err, soe flight sim. I also went kyaking and took a metal working class."
"Nothing. I went to space, though."
I wouldn't want a 6th person on all the time but I think it'd be cool if they rotated the rest of the staff for once-a-month guest appearances.
I would love it if Drew joined, partially because Drew is pretty awesome and partially because his taste in games (specifically simulation games) is out there and rather interesting.
I bet for logistics reasons he can't however, more than likely those three hours need to have some productivity for the site and Drew is more than likely editing videos.
im pretty sure hes just too busy to take the time to do it regularly , i mean hes only recently started being audible on quick looks , when clearly he has been talking into their earpieces forever ... plus his more frequent live stream appearances id say hes more prominent than ever .. im sure if he wanted to be on the podcast regularly he would have said something by now . same reason goes for why dave isnt on podcasts as often. (well his new excuse is havin a kid but prior to that he was slaving away.) and probably why we will never see or hear much of ltsquigs .. lots of work to b e done at giantbomb and only half the staff actively do anything :P
I'd love to have Drew and Dave on more, only problem is podcasts are like NFL pre/post game shows. Four is just right, five is crowd and begins to hurt the overall product. If Drew or Dave was a regular member I'd think that someone else would have to go because no way could you do it with 6 people. At least Drew and Dave are pretty laid back and quiet and don't feel the need to talk all the time so they'd be a perfect 5th.
I think 5 people is enough on a podcast, anymore than that, and you run the risk of too much talking over eachother, or someone not getting to talk at all.
I think they should have drew (or Dave) on when one of the other guys aren't around (like Ryan in the most recent episode).
As much as I love Drews appearances on the Bombcast, I'd have to say no. Mainly due to the fact that when the number of people in a podcast goes past 4, it just starts sounding like a cluster of voices. I still think the bombcasts were better when it was just the original four.
Also, Drew is too busy doing video stuff to come on the bombcast every week.
There should be a where he comes in towards the end of the Bombcast and he shares what he's been playing or doing, what he thinks of whatever big news story is happening and what technical wizardry was of interest in the previous week. This way he's forced to speak up, he doesn't waste a lot of time and we get to hear The Drew©.
The only issue I can see coming would be the fact that he may not play enough games to contribute and it may get hectic with so many people in one podcast. If those problems would be proven false, hell yeah I'd be down to have Drew podcasting on the reg.
Drew is like Vinny. The answer is always yes.
