Would be great to have him pop in from time to time. Patrick's news segment on the old 1up podcasts was really informative. He works well on a podcast format, but 5 dudes could be too much, which is why he would be good guest, when someone else is out doing video gamez business.

#52 Posted by ExplodingTuba (95 posts) -

I need to hear him first. Once he's on as a guest I'll cast my vote one way or the other. 

#53 Posted by billnyethesciencepie (1335 posts) -

if he sounds like a douche as much as he looks, then no

#54 Posted by DonutFever (3553 posts) -

Not every week, but it would be great to have him on for a fair amount of the time.

#55 Posted by ChickenPants (934 posts) -

I think 5 people is probably too many for a weekly podcast.

Really hope this doesn't cut down on any potential Dave podcast time...

#56 Posted by dungbootle (2458 posts) -

Only if he is really going to become the fifth Beatle.

#57 Edited by smitty86 (699 posts) -

Sure. 5 seems like the max number of people you can fit on a podcast before things get all crazy but he was great on G4's Feedback or whatever it was called. Also the Bombcast never really has "guest" unless one of the main guys won't be in. So it will likely never get past 5 and this gives some cushion in numbers when ryan has another kinect injury, jeff goes off on assignment, or brad......passes out/walks out mid-way though some crazy conversation.

Sidebar - Does the introduction of Klepek finally mean that the season for keeps is officially over? Season 4 on the horizon people.

Also, I predict about a 70% increase in endurance run related post soon followed by a 1000% bitch fest if Klepek ended up on it. I HAVE SPOKEN.

#58 Posted by CptBedlam (4453 posts) -

Stand-in maybe but not regularly. But it's the crew's decision in the end. I'll be fine as long as the core guys are all there - and hopefully Dave will still be on the cast here and there. MOAR DAVE!

#59 Posted by Choffy (443 posts) -

Rarely are Ryan, Vinny, Jeff and Brad all together on the same episode anymore (at least one always seems to be out on assignment). He'd be a great "6th Man," so to say.

#60 Posted by Vinny_Says (5719 posts) -

The bombcast is the only podcast where 3+ people talk and nobody talks over each other. If they can keep it like that with 5 people then fine.

(listen to the E3 podcasts or the gamespy podcast and notice the difference in quality)

#61 Posted by TheSmashing (313 posts) -

nah

#62 Posted by drag (1223 posts) -

Well it seems to be more and more common that one of the guys are away somewhere ... he's be a good filler-in for sure. There's no Alex for that any more. 

#63 Posted by RobotHamster (4175 posts) -

He can be a guest but I don't think it would feel right if he was a regular, it always has to be Vinny, Jeff, Ryan and Brad, FOREVER!

#64 Posted by FesteringNeon (2164 posts) -

Any new insight, way to change it up from time to time can't hurt.
I don't think he has to be in every podcast, but i'd like to hear him contribute periodically.

too early to give a definite answer.

#67 Posted by Portis (1287 posts) -

Sure, as long as no current staffer gets the boot from it.

#68 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4690 posts) -

I would like him on the podcast this week. We can go from there.
#69 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11275 posts) -

I'm still not even sure who the guy is, or what he sounds like or anything. I don't think I've ever heard of him before it was announced that he'd be working at Whiskey Media.

I honestly have never seen or heard him before, so I don't know.

Same. I think an irregular rotation would work. Whenever Someone doesn't feel like podcastin', they can step out for a week and nothing will be lost.
#72 Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious (1641 posts) -

I don't care because the Bombcast is always awesome no matter who's on it. As long as a few of the regular crew is around they always steer the podcast in the right direction.

#73 Posted by Siphillis (1296 posts) -

The very nature of Giant Bomb's greatness is its willingness to re-invent itself on the fly.  Klepek might at a dash of seriousness to the Bombcast festivities, but it could very well be for the better.  Give it a try at least.

#74 Posted by Jayross (2365 posts) -

I'll give him a shot for a few episodes, although I think he will do better on his own video segment.

#75 Posted by Little_Socrates (5683 posts) -

Let's wait until he's a guest member of the non-GDC Bombcast (or, hell, until HE'S POSTED CONTENT ON GIANTBOMB) before we make that decision. PLEASE?

we don't make decisions, we just make opinions that apper like they should be decisions
#78 Posted by Strife777 (1604 posts) -

No, I don't. I liked him on the two livecasts I've seen him in, but 5 is getting too crowded. Having him as a "guest" or replacement every once and then would be enough.

#79 Posted by ptys (1968 posts) -

I actually like it when the cast rotate roles e.g. last week with Dave and Jeff hosting was awesome. I think when Jeff is running the show he is more in control of his ranting and has a more neutral opinion which I really enjoy!

#80 Posted by l4wd0g (1981 posts) -

if the cast goes up to five...

#81 Posted by suntone (98 posts) -

I really enjoyed Patrick on the G4 podcast/webshow when he was on.  The only requirement is that he mentions bonerjam at least once a podcast.

GTFO, Though your Yojimbo avatar(or is that from Sanjuro?) wins you some points so I forgive you.

As for Patrick I don't know, he's a nice guy but I think 5 people is a bit too much for the regular bombcast, maybe I'm wrong.
#84 Posted by Toxin066 (3302 posts) -

I wouldn't mind a monthly appearance.

#85 Posted by Dalai (7040 posts) -

Four is enough. If there's gonna be a 5th Beatle in that podcast, it's Dave.

So you just want to listen to Patrick talk while Brad acts like he's asleep and then acts startled when Patrick mentions his name?
#88 Posted by Lucien_Lachance (214 posts) -

I'd be happy with a "recurring guest" position. At this point you can't permanently change anything on the Bombcast without causing a shitstorm.

#89 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4141 posts) -

No. A ever once in a while guest would be alright. 


And I don't get why people want Brad to go. He's my favorite journalist :/
#90 Posted by Greatgrey (55 posts) -

Personally that Jeff, Vinny Dave episode was the best in quite a while... We should vote on that.

originally i was joking, but now that you describe it, i'm all in for real on this idea

Agreed! Jeff is a good host as he takes a step back and is interested in others opinions a bit more than if he is just there to give his views.
#93 Posted by supermike6 (3586 posts) -

I think that the people who say five voices talking over each other is too much are forgetting that Brad doesn't really speak as much as the others. I think they could easily fit another person in there without having to take away Brad, because Brad is way too awesome not to be on the Bombcast. I don't understand all the hate for Brad!!

#94 Posted by truckington (54 posts) -
I think he needs to be at GB for a bit first.  Part of what makes the Bombcast great is that they all know each and such.  Maybe have him on as a guest soonish though and see how it goes?

personally I'd love to see Dave on Bombcast more
#95 Posted by JeffGoldblum (3706 posts) -

Might as well give him a shot. Never know until you try right?


#96 Posted by PillClinton (3291 posts) -

A regular member?  No.  But an occasional contributing member?  Yes. 

#97 Posted by Trilogy (2672 posts) -

I wouldn't mind him as a guest. But if he has to replace somebody? Fuck no.

#98 Posted by spankingaddict (2697 posts) -

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#99 Posted by demonbear (1860 posts) -

Absolutely, let him do the news segment! He will be the news guy right? and the podcast can use new blood.

#100 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I would do him. Might be a trip.
