You guys weren't kidding, she's fucking annoying.RAAAAGE!
" I used to like Leigh from her blog page. Now I can't stand her and I want to never hear her again. She sounds like she's on something, talking a mile a minute.Shut the fuck up.Skip the first 40 minutes of this cast people. "
Wow, she really hates "nerds" and the things they enjoy. I wish she'd let some other people talk.
" Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad, we're probably not winning you guys over by insulting your friend, but you have to OBJECTIVELY know she is simply a bad fit for your podcast. I put it to you to avoid hurting any feelings while maintaining the fantastic chemistry and light-hearted humor that your podcast is known for. "
Yikes... Leigh took over. She must have spoken 3x more words than everyone else combined. Some hard core web 2.0 technoblabber for half the show. Also some very weird comments attacking the world for the lack of MGS4 appreciation (it got a 94 on metacritic...).
Ok, here's your homework.I want to see someone edit this cast by removing all the parts of her. I want to see just how short it would be.Over/under - 20 minutes.

She just doesn't mesh well enough with the cast, although I'm not going so far to calling her names and whining about her. "
The nazi discussion was just insane...but i laughed so hard.
Ryan - "I'm going to take off these headphones".Smart man.
The Metal gear discussion and it's "Meta" connection is the most nerdy thing I've heard. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
Her voice is not bothering me too much but some of the things she says is possibly the dumbest things I've heard from a gaming podcast. Talking a lot isn't necessarily a bad thing but when the things you say are straight up idiotic it's a different story.
This is the Leighcast, I lasted 40 minutes. GOOD-DAY.
It's funny how you can tell the guys are just as annoyed when they start to not let her butt in.I like how she's so into Metal Gear and thinks she's the only person that get's it, yet she pronounces his name "Heedio" and spouts shit like MGS was a failure and under-appreciated.
Jeez Leigh, can you let others talk? Crap. I like your blog, but seriously...get a grip.And for the record, you want RE to have romance, you like the RE: Degeneration movie, and you think Metal Gear is subtle? I think you revealed quite a bit about yourself, dear.
While I didn't find her as annoying as some others, I do think it's cool that she can admit she was drunk/etc, and apologize.
1:42:00 The guys just start talking shit over her. Now it gets good.
She was pretty nutty but totally right about the console/virtual world discussions.
1:45:30 Blessed peace at last. Put a chair in front of the door.
" Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor not a bombcast! "
holy shit! please, please, never have Leigh Alexander on the podcast ever again. That chick is like a stupid 12 year old girl on speed. Someone might want to tell that "faux high-brow" moron to keep her shit in check when she is on YOUR podcast. Maybe next time she can tell Miyamoto that MARIO is too shallow a game........idiot!
Those dudes were downing Sparks for the last few days, look at the day 0 videos for proof. They weren't batshit crazy like she was.No excuse, just more BS.
At least she apologized.
In an alternate reality Brad stands up at 1:37:45 and shout, "I'm taking back the Bombcast you scum sucking demon betch" and slaps her in the face with his dynamite powered robo fists of kung fu trademarked glory.
I hope her ego is not such that she tries to get back on to redeam herself. Even a 100% improvement on her part would be unlistenable.
This Bombcast was made of awesome and win.
Some of your responses are fucking disgusting. I understand people saying she's butting in, but personal attacks against her are fucked up.
Summary of today's podcast: More games need Boneing
" @Jothel: I'm listening, and I agree for the most part; but seriously... a lot of people are making a bigger issue out of it than necessary. And on a lot of occasions, I think she made some valid points. She has a lot of strong opinions, and that's fine. It's just a little irritating browsing through the comments, and everything is just negative. I guess I'll just have to accept that the bigger the Giant Bomb community becomes, the more it becomes like everything else on the Internet... "
Did Drew have to wipe all the spit off Leigh's mic?
I love Jeff ripping on all the virtual worlds, sums up how I feel exactly! I don't remember her name but she made me almost turn this off on several occasions. Learn how to let other people speak for longer then 10 seconds before cutting them off to interject your point AGAIN.
