Sure, but get him a better mic than he had in the last one.
People absolutely hate change but I'd say he deserves to at least be involved on the Bombcast until after E3. He knows his stuff, he actually plays videogames, and is funny. You can't really judge something on one event. If they could just get him a better mic then it would already been better.
I voted yes before, and if I could change my vote...I wouldn't. He was great. And while at times the Bombcast sounded like there were too many people trying to say too many things at once, I think that's something that could easily be ironed out in time as they get a feel for each other.
" Yes. He should replace Brad. "Pretty much.
" 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. "Same. I can keep all of the voices separate, that is not the actual problem, it is just way too congested if there were 5 people on the show regularly.
"He was the reason to watch the G4 one a while back (along with Adam Sessler).
I haven't heard him in any podcast, so I don't know."
Here is my take on Patrick:
I think this poll is a little messed up, because a lot of votes were made before his appearance on the Bombcast last week. You will notice that the "yes" option significantly pulled ahead since then. I bet a lot of people would be willing to change their votes.
I love Brad more than the next man, but he doesn't talk all that often when you think about it. Patrick talks more, but he also doesn't talk so much that you'll hear his high, girly voice the whole podcast. I think together they mesh into the perfect 4th chair.
Also, Patrick doesn't have a girly voice. I just said that because someone up there apparently doesn't like it. I don't know why, though. He sounds average to me. Maybe a TAD high. But that fits into my theory, too. Brad has a booming voice that complements Patrick's (I don't wanna say high) not-booming voice.
