Poll: Do you want Drew to join the Bombcast regularly? (1811 votes)

Yes 88%
No 12%

Drew seems like a person with a lot of interesting insights on things. Shouldn't he be part of the regular Bombcast and more to the point why isn't he included in the first place?

I like Drew being on the show, but I think he has better things to do than sit for 3 hours every Monday afternoon and occasionally talk.

With Dave being gone, he'll get more chances to fill an empty seat. Though it would be cool for Rorie to be on more often as well.

#152 Posted by punkxblaze (2990 posts) -

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."

Instead of Hey Drew, whatcha been playing, his segment of the what have you been playing part of the podcast will be Hey Drew, what incredible shit have you been pursuing in life this week?

#153 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2570 posts) -

Yes, but he likely has many other responsibilities to be getting on with.

#154 Posted by poisonmonkey (357 posts) -

Hell yes (stupid question!)

Drew is such a renaissance man. And he never really talks about himself outside of stories that involve doing something exciting. Such an enigma. So dreamy.

Rorie? Get him on regularly. (this is not an anti-Drew comment, Drew's a legend, but I'd like to see/hear more from Matt)

#159 Posted by megalowho (972 posts) -

I like Drew, and Rorie for that matter, but I don't need everyone in the office on the podcast all the time. There's something to be said for having a bench to fill in as needed, and I'm sure he's got other responsibilities as a producer that podcast recording time is good for.

#160 Posted by Eli (347 posts) -

Absolutely. Make him a permanent panelist.

After what happened with Ryan Im not even sure I want to listen to another bombcast.

#162 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4235 posts) -

I'll keep listening. It's what Ryan would have wanted. I don't know if the guys will have it in them anymore, though. RIP Ryan. :(

That's just silly.

I think you're right. While this is truly devastating, I like to think Ryan would want the show to continue even without him. It will never be the same, though. =/

When I first saw this thread I said no, not because I don't like Drew, but because I really like him and "familiarity breeds contempt."

Today I voted, and I say yes. He can't fill the enormous shoes--no-one can--but his presence would be very comforting.

#166 Posted by desoda (118 posts) -

Not like this…

#167 Posted by DEARPEPTOBISMOL (21 posts) -

Drew should most definitely be a regular part of the podcast.

#168 Posted by mems1224 (259 posts) -

Drew is so awesome. He always has cool stories or these weird games to talk about.

#169 Posted by Natep0124 (11 posts) -

Drew is a Greek God and dabbles in a bunch of neat gaming niches. No one can fill the void left by Ryan (and Patrick), but I think he'd be a fantastic addition.

#170 Posted by dudeglove (8022 posts) -

Drew has to like code video n'shit, no?

#171 Posted by benpicko (2011 posts) -

Code... video? Encode? Transcode?

#172 Posted by benpicko (2011 posts) -

Also I think that for the time being this is going to have to happen

#173 Posted by localshop (11 posts) -

I think for now I would prefer to keep it as Jeff, Vinny and Brad and then perhaps in the coming months, sure why not. I just think it's too early to be thinking about new additions to the Bombcast right now.

#174 Posted by Perkunas (49 posts) -

@localshop: Well, I don't think it would be too jarring with Drew on for the next one. He was on before and does well. It's not like they have a new person entirely.

#175 Posted by Mushir (2389 posts) -

I think Rorie would be a better fit for weekly podcasts, but I will never say no to more Drew content. I have a serious man crush on him.

#176 Posted by Legion_ (1424 posts) -

Drew is a fantastic guy, and I'd love to hear more from him. That being said, no matter what happens, they'll eventually have to bring in a fresh face in the office. I wonder who it'll be.

#177 Posted by THRICE_604 (210 posts) -

Been wondering whats next for the Bombcast crew. There is now this nigh unfillable void there. It'd be nice for both Rorie and Drew to become regulars. Whatever happens I'm afraid to listen to that first podcast back. Eventually things will settle back into a new normal and probably quicker than you think. But the next Bombcast is going to be such a somber affair. Like I don't want to hear Jeff, Brad, and Vinny try and discuss whatever crap is happening with Microsoft or Sony right now. I'm all for a remembering Ryan episode, I think we all (including the bombers) need that catharsis.

#178 Posted by san_salvador (146 posts) -

Bombcast will never be the same. Which doesn't mean it won't be great. Bring in new folk, try something out and I am sure we will find something that works great.

#179 Posted by iknowthatname (27 posts) -

I want to hear everyone on the Bomb crew! They are the best. I wish Patrick would Skype in.

#180 Posted by VirtuaGrant (52 posts) -

I think they could have a rotating fourth chair, with Rorie, Drew, Alexis or some one from outwith the office joining in when they're available. It could be cool to get some new perspectives with a bit of regularity.

#181 Posted by Brackynews (4094 posts) -

Good job this week Drew!

#182 Posted by StrainedEyes (1326 posts) -

Drew is really good at sounding genuinely interested in everything (probably because he actually is). It's a gift.

#183 Posted by MHumphreys89 (717 posts) -

Yes and make him the host, I don't think Vinny is the best man for that particular job. I think Drew could host in way similar to how Rich Gallup used to host the HotSpot.

#184 Posted by Electric_Zen (99 posts) -

I love Drew, but the Bombcast has been effective by maintaining a balance between the high-energy guys (Ryan, Jeff, Patrick) and the low-energy guys (Vinny, Brad, Drew). Right now, the balance is out of wack.

I agree, in the long term the bombcast needs someone to add a bit more energy into the mix. As it wouldn't work with someone Skyping in (Patrick) maybe Rorie might fit the bill even though I haven't heard a whole lot of him.

#186 Edited by Rittsy (78 posts) -

We all could use a little more Drew in our lives.

...or some infinite Vinny.

I like rorie, but he'll turn it into a podcast about puppies and I'm not cool with that lol.

#188 Edited by DystopiaX (5335 posts) -

Yes, Giant Threecast is too few and I don't think there's anyone else they can bring in other than Rorie. Between him and Rorie I don't care who if anyone gets the slot (or if they rotate in and out).

It does make me wish Dave were still around so that we could have a semi-regular Davecast though.

Team Drew.

#191 Posted by iMort (13 posts) -

He should have been there all along!

#192 Posted by datarez (558 posts) -

What I really enjoy about Drew, besides him being hombre extraordinaire, is that he plays different games than the rest of the folks. It can keep it going in unexpected directions.

#193 Posted by Mockduck (20 posts) -

Drew should be on the show regularly for sure. One just has to look at the trip to Norway to see that he brings a lot to the crew.

#194 Posted by OurSin_360 (937 posts) -

Sure why not? He adds a pretty unique perspective to the discussions

#196 Edited by Itwongo (1217 posts) -

I'd like to change my vote. Drew's pretty good at it.

#199 Posted by AuthenticM (3762 posts) -

As long as he participates more.

#200 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3906 posts) -

Anyone who votes no is a bad person and probably slaps babies.

Ok well maybe that's harsh...but I bet they THINK about it.
