I've never heard this dude speak.
Where do I hear him speak?

Yeah. I really dug him on Feedback, and think the news segment would be a lot more cohesive and filled with more, you know, news if he was included. While I think five people would still work, four is probably best for a well-rounded discussion, and I'd be fine with a rotating cast. I don't think the Bombcast loses anything when one of the guys is out on assignment, so I doubt much would be lost if one decided to take a bye-week.
I can't make a call until he does it once...this poll would be better to make after he guests for a few times. Personally I'd rather see Dave (as a PC gamer) or Drew (as awesome) as regulars first; they've been there for awhile and every bombcast they're on is awesome.
I'd like a regular 4 person bombcast. I don't mind who is involved yet. I'd love to have him on a couple times though. Perhaps he should fill gaps? Or they should surprise us with a team of 4. Basically I don't want too many voices, but I don't want Mr. Klepek left out
I do not think he is here to replace anybody per se as to rather develop the demension GB felt it should be covering in a AAA way but obviously wasn't. It's nobody's fault, or if it was, it was GB's lack that it now is trying to rectify. Brad Nicholson was doing probably exactly what he was hired to do, but the news coverage needed to revamp several orders of total change with a whole new approach. I understand this, and that is going to be Klepeks sphere of endeavor. It's I'm sure a full time job.
This has probably been a pretty intense thing to put forth, justify to whiskey Media, and make happen. I suspect I know the level of professionalism they wish to reach, to be on par or better than the News Departments of other top notch Gaming sites, I do hope this is the result of Klepek's hire and wish him and GB, and Whiskey Media, the best.. I also hope this goes in a positive fashion for GB staff , and seeing how whiskey Media has acted in another matter, I do not think there is rude news to be anticipated. Jeff won't find his belongings in the hallway tomorow,..again.
" @Marz said:Would rather have a video news thing than a podcast news thing." too many voices on the podcast already. He'd be ok to fill in for one of the main guys if they are on vacation or something. "This. Occasionally on yes, but not regular, too many people, but maybe his own newscast? Definitely. "
" I'm 50/50. I like Patrick, but I wonder if 5 people on a podcast at once is too many? I certainly don't wanna replace any of the existing guys, but I wouldn't be opposed to a rotation... maybe. "Kinda this. I like the idea of him joining but it increases the chance of people talking over each other and general chaos. Ah screw it throw him in there why not.
I think it would be awesome if Patrick became a regular on the Bombcast. It would add a fresh perspective/opinions and it already seems like he remembers the details of games and events a lot more vividly than the others. His youth is definitely a bonus as well. I also hope that he likes games that the Giantbomb crew does not like; it would add more to the podcast and the website. Specifically if he likes Final Fantasy, that would be amazing. (I know Rorie does, but it doesn't seem like he'll ever join Giantbomb.)
I think Patrick clicked well with the crew and he wasn't silent or afraid to jump in with a well-informed opinion (thinking of the BradN guest spot here, where he said all of five sentences in two hours). I like him, and I think this latest Bombcast was probably the funniest one in a good while.
" Not really, I prefer having the odd guest from time to time.On the flipside 5 could mean a longer podcast in general since an extra person has to speak about what they've been playing. But that could mean they have to cut down other segments if they have a time limit. (I don't think they do though) "They seem have to some sort of desire to keep it from going into the 3 hour mark which could be tough with a whole new segment.
