Not REALLY appreciating the slam on Southerners.

I mean, you guys are awesome, and keep doing your thing... but... just saying.

Someone sounds like they've got a hitch in their giddy-up.

@retrometal: now you know how jrpg people feel.

Wait, what? I guess I qualify as "jrpg people" and never felt "slammed". It's just no one on the staff is into that genre.

Except for Jeff saying Persona 4 is one of the best games ever made.

The South is for jerks. (I grew up in Kentucky)

Tough titties. They make fun of everyone that's not them in every way and think anything they don't like is dumb. Just because it targets you for once doesn't mean a thing.

#9 Posted by Zalrus9 (117 posts) -

When did they slam on Southerners? I must have missed that...

Also speaking as a JRPG person (slightly relapsed), I found Persona 4 to be one of the best games ever made....

Brad is southern. I am from Scotland/UK they make fun of the British all the time I don't "get my knickers in a bunch" about it.

Also saying your not doing something then adding "but" is an indication you're going to do what you said you were not going to do.

Brad's a southern man, and they were pretty clearly at pains not to cause any offence there.

Also I'm English, so you can't even begin to understand how we feel.

Get in line, buddy, just behind the europeans, the soccer fans, the anime fans, the Canadians... etc.

#13 Posted by csl316 (9509 posts) -

I think Brad converted to southernism purely for the jokes!

As a southern anime fan, I'm just about ready to sue for emotional distress.

It's all in good fun, I wouldn't take it seriously. Speaking as someone from Alabama, it's bound to happen.

You would have had a point if you were a Southern Canadian Anime Fan.

How 'bout a southern fan of anime and JRPG's that also dislikes football and doesn't care much for cars?

#21 Posted by TheKramer89 (423 posts) -

People from the south who are stereotypical "southern" are honestly few and far between. Some states/cities are more susceptible to "southerners" but it's definitely the "loud minority" that gets the most attention and bring these stereotypes out. As with any group of people...

#22 Posted by Hunter5024 (5980 posts) -

I find it funny that they said southerner's were slow a week ago and you're just now getting around to posting this.

Not everybody has the time to listen to a 3hr podcast the day it comes out. I'm not being snarky, being honest.

I'm from the south and I wasn't offended at all, it was just gentle ribbing. If it helps, when Vinny said that southerners were kind of slow (he meant it in jest) I said to myself, "I don't know Vinny, I've seen you play games. You're pretty slow as well."

What really happened has no impact on how funny it looks from the outside, and funny it looked. :D

Us yokels from Texas here just got big softy hearts, so everything offends us.

Looks like a case of "its fun until the joke is on me".

#30 Posted by laserguy (455 posts) -

I'm not from the south, but I did go there this month and got a bunch of "Yall's."

#31 Posted by McGhee (6075 posts) -

I'm from the South and currently live in Tennessee. And yes, all the stereotypes really exist and can be even worse than people imagine.

I don't want to sound like a racist, but... (immediately says most vile thing imaginable)

Well, I heard Mister Young sing about her

Well, I heard ole Neil put her down

Well, I hope Neil Young will remember

A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

That podcast is a week old. If it took you this long to process it, maybe they were right?

Look bubba, we can solve this real civil. If you've told your houseboy to ask his momma to be using the juju on the Bombcrew then call that off.

Bitching, just like a southerner.

The bombcast is totally bitchin', I agree.

And besides, I'm pretty sure he was talking about the cadence of speech, not intelligence. I'm not sure how that could even be construed as negative.

#45 Posted by Zelyre (1276 posts) -

It's better if you read the opening post -really- slowly.

#46 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (6011 posts) -

Speaking for myself, I'm from the south and none of that shit offends me in the least. Never be insecure or upset over the little stuff.

Southerners and Midwesterners are the dregs of our society according to people in The Bay Area...

Let's never forget that Brad has the highest and lowest voice of the Bombsquad. Sorry, California, those dulcetones are only produced in Cacklacky.

This is why the North won and is still superior in every way imaginable.
