According to Ryan's twitter, the New Yorker referred to the Giant Bombcast as "charmingly garrulous" and said it was similar to "Car Talk" but with knowledgeable gamers. They even directly quoted Ryan Davis talking about the neck and face stabbing in Assassin's Creed II.

Oh sweet. Is this why there are so many new people appearing today?

Charmingly Garrulous.
Goddamn those words sound so posh. I declare that I too am now Charmingly Garrulous.
I think I'll actually rename myself that.

@ThatFrood: So you're especially talkative, especially on trivial matters? 
I had to look it up on Google.

We're famous!!!! I'm proud to have been a part of the bombcast's early days before their world domination plans kicked in full force!

Indeed. Some have even said it to be "charmingly" so.

Hell, they made it in my book when they finally got the first ArrowPointingDown Podcast on the air/internet!

Now we can all truly call ourselves a bunch of elitist jerks. The entire GB community should give itself a pat on the back. Well done all.

The reference in The New Yorker is awesome! I hope the guys don't let it go to their heads.

I need his son.....

#31 Posted by Rinkalicous (1340 posts) -

Ryan's quote made me laugh so much. It's so hilariously informal relative to the rest of the article.

#32 Posted by TurboMan (7813 posts) -

Giant Bomb has made it in newspapers!

#33 Posted by Mrnitropb (2090 posts) -

The funniest part is that even THAT guy mentions that Nolan North is in a lot of games.

I kind of think the new yorker is shitty so... fuck...

#35 Posted by s7evn (1072 posts) -

Congrats to the crew on this mention. Now every high-class civil minded worker who reads that will listen to one bombcast, but little do they know that the bombcast is more addicting than meth. Slowly but surely they will stop working as they listen in, the itch of waiting a week will set in and they won't be able to concentrate, over time the working class of America will break down.

It's better than those nude photos leaked to the National Enquirer... they were charmingly gratuitous.

" Nicholson Baker, novellist and author of the article, also guested on New Yorkers Out Loud podcast. "I tried to shoot him a little bit. In a polite way." "
That's actually a really good interview. The guy knows what he's talking about.

Hope Whiskey Media's servers can handle all the web-traffic from NewYorker readers coming in to check the site.

Ya, I noticed that when a ton of people started following me and they had the default images.
#46 Posted by CitizenKane (10508 posts) -

I still imagine the New Yorker's response to listening to the Bombcast to be something along the lines of this:

#47 Posted by Linkin10362 (591 posts) -
@DonutFever: I believe that is because people want that "Have 5 people you are following on at the same time as you" quest. I've been getting loads of follows as well.
#48 Posted by DonutFever (3553 posts) -
@Linkin10362: I imagine that's it then. Forgot since I went through that so quick.
