I think this is kind of weird, she wasn't very self-aware on the podcast and she apologized on her blog for being drunk and loud. I didn't really mind her myself and I kind of feel bad for her.

Linked.

Haahahaaah

xD
#3 Posted by JakJ (999 posts) -

I didn't mind. It's just one bombcast, after all. It's not like she killed Brad or anything.

#4 Posted by AltDimension (257 posts) -

Yeah, this has been posted multiple times now.

Goddammit! THAT BITCH!!

I knew the ER would end someday, but.... but not like THIS.

I thought she was entertaining.

#9 Posted by Delta_Ass (3276 posts) -

Good.

Honestly, if I were her I'd fear for my job security after putting on a performance like that.

#10 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2402 posts) -

Yeah people are pretty harsh in that other topic. She was annoying in the first half, but whatever, it's just a podcast. Chill ya'll.

Seeing how she's kind of her own boss, I think she'll be alright.

I find it amusing on the last day of E3, the majority of the Bombchatter is about Leigh Alexander...

No. She works at gamasutra. That blog is just a personal blog for her.

Right, but she's News Director over there. And Think Services mainly runs the blog as a way to sponser the job postings and general information. Chris Remo is really the only person who might "fire" her, but I really don't see that happening. There's nothing here that really calls for her to resign.

There are a lot more people involved in that company that can fire her. Nothing that calls for a resign? How about the fact that she pretty much made a fool out of herself when she was attacking capcom? Capcom could easily say "we are never giving you news again as long as she works there" and they would be just in doing so.

Do you guys think her being intoxicated at a podcast was acceptable? I still haven't heard the podcast yet, but if she was drunk it really makes her like a disrespectful guest. This is coming from a guy who is never invited anywhere. >_<

Well seeing how it was Jeff who gave her the Sparks she was drunk on...

Nah, drunk is fine. Inappropriate is not.
#19 Posted by Guerrilla_Mason (479 posts) -

I didn't mind her that much, minus the discussion about MGS. My God, she came off as such a snooty bitch (not calling her a bitch in general) during that.  I think my jaw dropped on that part, it was so ridiculous.  'No one has ever written about all these parallels he's drawing except for me, and I don't even write about it!'  If that's not a head scratcher, I don't know what is.

#20 Posted by Hannibal (863 posts) -

She was just really loud.

I'd still like to say this is one of my favorite podcasts since you can totally tell everyone is like, "jesus we know the gaming industry" when she's talking.

Also the burn on the GRIN guy was amazing.

#21 Edited by Jimbo (9800 posts) -

OK, so the bombcast was pretty much a write-off (imo), but some of you guys could try and have a little class.  She screwed up, she's apologised and I'm sure she'll apologise to the Capcom guy.  If she was being all 'sassy gamer chick' about it, then your righteous fury might be justified, but she totally isn't. 

If Capcom acted how you are suggesting, they would be no better than Eidos over the Jeff/K&L thing.  You can't have it both ways.

I second that. 
#23 Posted by 1_879_116_9420 (96 posts) -

I agree with things she said; she made good points on the podcast.

#24 Posted by Claude (16255 posts) -

She was fine and no apology was needed. She even said she was flaming a little bit.

In any case, I never heard of a drunk girl getting her way with several men. :P
#26 Posted by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

I'm not going to listen to it, sounds like she was being a real douche though.

Please KEEP THAT BITCH on a leash from now on.

You guys are being dicks. She made it more entertaining, really.

man listen to yourself.  She was a guest and she was freaking awesome, made for some great quotes from the guys and really let us know who she was.  You either want a toned down podcast that doesnt have real opinions in it or you get the BombCast.  Next time the guys have a drunken podcast, I will be sure to let you know because you probably cried on the last one with Rick Gallup. Go back to Gamespot please and let the opinions and craziness that is the Giant Bomb reign supreme.  Bye.
#32 Posted by DBZ_Fanatic (132 posts) -
@TheHBK: Dude letting people know who you are is great and letting your opinions known is great as well but the podcast title was E3 DAY TWO not Leigh Alexander bitches about stuff and talks about how she hates home so much
#33 Edited by Agnogenic_delete (1034 posts) -

It wasn't that bad. It was only one podcast anyways.

EDIT: I take that back... it was pretty bad.

#34 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2402 posts) -

Some of ya'll need to grow up. It's fine to voice your opinion and such, but don't start taking personal stabs at the person or begin name-calling. Provide your criticism and move on.

#35 Posted by billcosby2004 (108 posts) -
@TripMasterMunky:

For reals.  It's a video game podcast.  It's all supposed to be in good fun anyway.  Y so srs?  The chick apologized, time for the community to move on amicably.  There will be more Bombcasts, afterall.  
#36 Posted by slinky6 (567 posts) -

I just called her a bitch and now I feel kinda bad.

#37 Posted by Babble (1270 posts) -

At some point she said "shh" to Brad when he tried to talk. :P

#38 Posted by cool8man (28 posts) -

Holy shit she is a disaster of humanity. Things must be really bad at Gamasutra if this is the caliber of person that they hire.  I'm in disbelief that she has a job in this industry. The bar must be set really low for female game journalists if this girl can get a job.

Haha, yea... because out of all the Giantbomb guys, Brad's the one who really won't let anyone get a word in edgewise. He's just such a blabbermouth all the time.
#40 Posted by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

I think that Leigh Alexander was definitely the most interesting thing about that podcast.  Some of the points she made would have been better if she was guesting on Idle Thumbs (which is also great) but either way the majority of the hatred directed toward her on the comments board is rather pathetic.

Yes very interesting points on E3...... o no wait all she did was say she wanted romance in resident evil and say no one else but her sees the genius of Kojima 
#42 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

I actually didnt think it was that bad the first time I heard the podcast, but when even her apologized, i went back and listened to it, and it was pretty bad indeed. the kojima / mgs4 thing especially had a HUGE forum-posting-blind-fanboy rant vibe. With that said, its a podcast, a videogame podcast in fact, in a site known for above all else, having fun. so chill the fuck out with the personal attacks on the chick

and for the people that go "OMG HOW CAN A JOURNALIST ACT THIS WAY"... this isnt CNN, its videogames. I can make a website, write about games, and that doesnt make me a journalist. Im not dissing the guys (NEVER!) or anyone in this profession, hell, its my dream job to be fucking honest, but this reminds me of the other day with the dude accusing jeff of being biased against sony and how can a professional act that way... its like, dude...they play video games and then tell you what they thought. they arent in wars reporting from the front lines.

except the console wars of course >_>

Actually she commented on a great number of things. If she'd really only talked about romance in RE and Kojima then there wouldn't be this supposed controversy, would there? As for her being self-important about "seeing the genius of Kojima", well if someone such as Shane Bettenhausen had been on the podcast doing the same thing I bet half of the people here wouldn't mind at all. Such hypocrisy.
#44 Posted by Derios (423 posts) -

When does it start getting really bad cus im like at the 1:40:00 mark?

#45 Edited by FlipperDesert (2083 posts) -

Wow, some of you are real dicks. Maybe she did talk a little too much but it was her first podcast and she was likely nervous, and she did have some valid points. Seriously, personal attacks on her and saying she should be fired? Stop playing the podcast, take a step away from your computer, count to ten, and breathe. You shouldn't be listening to something supposed to be entertaining if you're that emotionally unstable.

The First Rule of Everything: Drunk chicks are awesome.

If it weren't for drunk chicks I would have never...

Ummm, let's move on shall we.

#47 Posted by JJOR64 (18954 posts) -

I didn't mind her but, she did talk a little to much and got off topic a lot.

Exactly!!! Perfectly said!
#49 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2402 posts) -

I saw some people left comments on her blog calling her a cunt and such.

Too bad some of you don't have anything better to do.

Thanks for representing the Giant Bomb community so maturely.

#50 Posted by cool8man (28 posts) -

At first I said they should NEVER have her back on again, but I take that back. I think they should have her on again without a mic, and just berate her for 2 hours.  Then she could begin to understand how we felt.

  • Calls Bioware losers, when she is an anime nerd, a blind rabid MGS fangirl, who spent years of her life organizing virtual world conferences.
  • Demands romance in Resident Evil from Capcom developer.
  • Spends an hour explaining why Second Life is not the future of the internet.
  • Without irony claims Nazi uniforms are sexy, especially on anime characters? Disgusting.
  • Spends another hour explaining without irony and in great specificity why Hideo Kojima is the most underappreciated genius in the game industry (possibly in the world).

I'm not sure whom I'm more angry at:

A.)  This immature ignorant fangirl who has no self-control over her mouth
B.) Giant bomb guys who never should have allowed her to do what she did (or even invited her on)
C.) Myself for sitting through this painful 2 hour ear raping (The previous episode of the Bombcast was hilarious - I NEVER expected this)


I don't condone violence against women, but there was seriously a point during the podcast where Ryan needed to reach across the table and slap her.
