Patrick is a great guy and all, but I prefer the original team.
I think it's great when he fills in the empty space when one of the regular four is absent.
Like a lot of you have said, we do not want to spoil the great chemestry that already is.
However, I was sceptical when Brad and VInny joined as well, and I couldn't possibly have been more wrong!

All four of them have been do this stuff together way before Giantbomb. It's also why I'm confused people getting all uptight about Alex doing stuff for the Giantbomb site, he is also part of the original crew.
Patrick fits in well and is extremely knowledgeable. If not for the entire ~2 hours, the very least he could do is jump in for the news section.
@Jiggah: Thing is, before Giant Bomb, I didn't listen to The Hotspot. In fact, I didn't listen to any podcast. I only watched the liveshows (On The Spot).... yeah, stupid, I know.
For some reason I didn't know who Vinny was, and Brad I only knew from the shows. The main reason I went to Gamespot was because I enjoyed Jeff's reviews. I really started to get into Gamespot around E3, the summer before most of the crew left. So basically I followed them here, and I've loved every bit of it.
I guess I'm just scared of everything new (was for Patrick at the start as well), but for every member that has joined the WhiskeyMedia crew since Jeff and Ryan the experience has only gotten better! Really liking Patrick now aswell. :)
Nope. Never change a winning team. Feels odd already when listening to Podcasts where one of the four regulars is missing. If they would have to fill a seat once in a while get Dave, Alex or maybe Norm or Will. Would be more entertaining in my humble opinion.
I'd actually like something like this. Klepek is much better at running down the news than anyone else on the 'cast, but he doesn't necessarily have to be around for the full duration every week.
How about he walks in after the "Hey Vinny..." segment, spits the news, drops the mic and walks out?
Imagine it's late November and all the AAA titles are upon us and there's just so much to talk about... adding another voice in the bombcast will make it way overcrowded, busy and diluted.
If it's a slow time, like this week, he would be good.
He definitely has the news chops so bring him in at the end.
As for Brad the Bombcast needs him because he balances it out by being mellow and not attempting wisecracks and jokes every moment. Not that wisecracks/jokes are a bad thing, it's just that the cast has plenty of that.
OFF TOPIC: Why did Alex move to the East coast? And yes I would like Patrick on, he is far more insightful then Brad and he doesn't just quote other peoples opinions from other websites and forums, instead he has his own well thought-out opinions.I could be wrong but wasn't it so they could have a Giant Bomb guy over there to cover events for them?
