Their are plenty of female gamers I would fucking love to hear on the bombcast, but Leigh is not one of them. Sweeping generalizations make you look ignorant and foolish by the way.

Giantbomb is a little bit biased to the 360, but Leigh is a Sony FANGIRL.

great diverse podcast : )

@CoverlessTech: probably missed that :D

You know i was listening to her at first and thinking :"Oh, that's really nice, this lady has got some pretty good points and she sounds like an open minded person" but then when she went all bazooka on RE5 and the PS3-Ball-Motion thingy i was like :"OH DUDE, ENOUGH OF THIS, MY EARS ARE BLEEDING. HIT PAUSE NOW"

But yeah, she said sorry so that counts for something. Never get drunk on a Podcast!

Maybe? NEVER.

She didn't talk any louder than anyone else. Everyone was yelling. It was pretty obvious that they were all drunk and rowdy. I don't see why at all she is being singled out.

Kraig was asking some good questions at the end, hope you can get him back for another bombcast.

Shut. Up. Gamasutra. Lady.

It's official!  The bombcast was bombjacked by two complete douches!

Douche #1 - Leigh Alexander [completely ruined the first hour and a half]

Douche #2 - Kraig Kujawa [asked way too many questions from his douche tower, which ruined the remaining half hour]

As much as it pains me to say, as host, I have to lay some of the blame on Ryan. 

"
I usually reserve my comments and opinions, thus why i've been sitting back and watching all this unfold...but i have to step in. That guy was a complete dick.
Posted by Jeffsekai

God dammit shes so dumb, I'm at the part where they are talking about MGS 4 and Ryan is trying to talk and she just yells over him...dumb bitch

Posted by CoverlessTech
@Daawisss: Yeah Ryan actually said "shut up", the rest of the dudes where pretty much saying it in a different way.

Skip to 1:45 to get the good bombcast.

Not gonna lie - Leigh Alexander is so manic on this podcast that I feel out of breath just listening to her

Posted by PresidentOfJellybeans

Good lord, 20 min in and she won't shut up.  let someone else speak!  Need to lock her and jaffe in a room together and see who can talk most.

I don't have a problem with her being loud or even talking a lot. Podcasts get loud when you have too many people on them. It's when she straight up insults games in front of their developers. That and being VERY hypocritical. Either way people are too hard on her. It's not the end of the world that this isn't the best podcast in some parts. The podcast proper will be back the way everyone is used to it come next week.

@Milkman:

No dude, she was like:"I WANNA SAY SOMETHING HERE, YOU ALL WAIT AND LISTEN"

Each time they try to say something she bounces and cuts through the conversation.

I'm 1h 40min in and i think Leigh is a good inclusion in the bombcast. Just don't bring up Metal Gear Solid when she's around.. this rant is a bit much... but to be fair I'm not a fan of MGS so this MGS talk  isn't really in my interests.

Posted by Getter3

Mmm...bonecast.

Posted by Regal

I'm glad people are commenting about this, I thought I might be the only one but that girl does not belong on podcasts that was kind of annoying, all around good podcast tho.

Posted by zombie2011

Wow that chick would not shut up. She seems to love Sony aswell.

Edited by FrumpyBiscuts

this is the craziest . . . gettohest cluster rape of voices I have ever listened to. It was good, but man, I had to take my headset off a couple of times because there was (like I said) just a cluster rape of voices.

Posted by MjHealy

Wow she does not shut up. Let Ryan talk, c'mon. I want to hear some E3 games not a real long and kind of pointless rant about Kojima and MGS.

Posted by Daawisss
@CoverlessTech: Thanks! I was getting tired of that off topic stuff.

well, all this "controversy" over leigh should at least get a comment on the next bombcast :p

Posted by nuness1988

It was a little annoying hearing the one woman trash every game because it didn't fit her needs EXACTLY.  She must have been totally drunk.

Christ that girl's a bitch, don't invite her again :|

Okay, you idiots need to calm down. It's one thing to call her annoying and say you don't want her on the Bombcast. But really? She's a bitch because she was loud on a video game podcast?

My favorite is "I own an xbox 360! I'm not a fanboy - but Sony knows it all"

one her blog she said she was drunk... invite here BACK!  

maybe?

Posted by Haze

Now now. I enjoyed her Metal Gear passion and thought she raised some valid points.  You also have to understand when some people get tired they get hyper! I hope she gets a chance to appear on the bombcast again when she is well rested and sober. Either way she is certainly not deserving of condemnation.

50 min in, wishing she had to go to the bathroom more so someone else could share an opinion....

It's not because she was loud. She was hardly louder than the other guys. Read the comments.

I choose to defend her only because the majority dislikes her! Hear, hear!

I think it's more the fact she tried her damndest to stop anyone else getting a word in edgeways, speaking very fast, not pausing for a second (as a pause would allow interuption) and generally speaking over people.
Posted by bekern

haha leigh was great you guys need to stop hating. She added a lot of energy to the podcast :P.

Posted by Nictel

One word: Awesome.
I seem to be the only one who liked the woman from Gamasutra? Or are all the nerds here offended by what she said?

So....loud? Like I just said...That's fine that you thought that but "that girl's a bitch"...calm down kiddies.

God damn I love Adam Boyes.  Ulf is a great guest.  Leigh makes me cringe, the way she praised the aesthetics of the S.S. uniform was disgusting, regardless of how she meant it.

EXACTLY.   There is a great moment in some romantic comedy--I forgot which one--where two people are getting to know each other and one of them asks the other one "in a conversation, do you listen to other people, or do you just wait to speak?"  That's a question that I would never have to ask this person, as I already know the answer.  I was actually pretty happy to hear that there was a female guest and that we'd be getting a woman's perspective on things.  Then she just wouldn't stop talking.

There were a couple of times where she paused, someone else started to say something, and she started talking over them immediately.  There are points other people tried to make that I'll never get to hear, because this stupid person simply wouldn't shut the fuck up!
Posted by twardybidon

Who the hell is that girl?! I've heard her for the first extremely annoying time. I won't call her names but I think I could be entitled to.

During the whole podcast she:
- said crap about Capcom and their new RE idea
- said crap about Bioware and their 'nerdness'
- said crap about all people who didn't understand the genius of MGS and Kojima (only she did)
etc.

The only thing she talked good about were Nazis. She's not an analyst. She's anal.

And one more thing girl: When Sir Jeff Gerstmann speaks You shut the fuck up!

That line is from Plup Fiction, the best romantic comedy ever! (see Zed + Ving Rhames).

Throwing an annoying **GAMER GIRL** into the cast sure made it lamer.
