Man, at first I was annoyed she was being talked over; then she would not stop talking over everyone.


I think I'd have loved her on the show if she wasn't talking over everyone being so obnoxious.  One person should talk at a time, and be considerate of each other.

All in all, though, I think that is part of the problem of having too many people on a show; you can't fit that many people on a show comfortably and this bombcast is a perfect example.

If I say that I found this podcast extremely annoying because of the girl talking over everyone and veering off of E3 podcast topics into her own personal twenty minute diatribes, then I'm suddenly sexist and we're all a bunch of mean males in a male-dominated arena. It's a real catch-22, because I'm all for a diverse casting of viewpoints and contributions. However, sometimes an annoying prattling patronizing bitch is an annoying prattling patronizing bitch, regardless of the sex.

Then again, after all the badmouthing and insulting she did of other gamers (you're all a bunch of sad pathetic sexless losers that use avatars because nobody loves you!), I don't really give a shit how my criticisms are taken.

I really wanted to like her in the beginning. She seemed like a fun personality to have guesting on this podcast. At first. Maybe she needs to go start her own podcast and let Jeff and Ryan and Vinnie run their own.

Also, isn't it interesting that when it's a female, the response from those involved is "we get it - shut up and move along!". Remember, it's mean to talk negatively about females, even if their being female has nothing to do with why you disliked them. So we should all tuck our penises between our legs and go away and come back when the next person that rubs us wrong has testes.

This podcast would have been difficult no matter WHO was on it, if one of the people had never stopped talking, interrupted people, stomped all over their comments, insulted people, patronized everyone, etc. Of course, it's easier to respond to criticism by saying "you're a bunch of sexist jerks!" instead of contemplating the fact that you're awful.

" @DukeTogo: She's the news director for Gamasutra; she's not just "a bitch with a blog". Technically, that would make me just as qualified in my own opinions from having my own blog. It would also be akin to saying that those Giant Bomb guys don't know anything; they're just a bunch of guys with a website.
"
And being "news director" of a blog makes her king shit? Who cares. What particularly makes her qualified above anyone else that we could have heard of that would have been insightful and NOT talked over people? Look, talking over someone briefly (as in, you both start your sentences together) is understandable. She will interrupt someone several words into their thoughts and then talk for entire paragraphs while the other person is still talking, making both unlistenable.

If she's such an industry luminary and expert, she should have the fucking professionalism to shut her fucking mouth and learn how to participate in a god damned conversation like every other civilized human being. That she has tits (and I don't feel bad for phrasing it that way, because she clearly POSITIONS HER CAREER on that hinging fact as many people do) is not relevant. If the Eve Online guy had been so inept at having conversations and destroyed the podcast the same way she did, I'd be talking shit about that guy, too. Except he didn't. Because he couldn't get a word in edgewise.

One of the worst podcasts ever.

Fuck that bitch is annoying, she ruined the podcast by herself.

Why, woman? Why must you be so hysterical!? ._.

Her voice reminds me of the shirt Jeff was forced to turn inside out.

Goddamnit. I can't finish listening. That woman is HORRIBLE.

I liked her "Girls don't take dumps, they excrete rose petals from there navals"  comment

I'm a bit late to the party but I just heard this Bombcast and felt compelled to comment.
 
Here I was hoping for a comical bombcast with the appearances of the GRIN dudes again but it pains me to say that this was the worst Bombcast out of all of them.  Leigh can single-handedly take credit for that.  She makes 2 guests walk out, makes an unnecessary Nazi SS uniform sexiness comment, wouldn't let anyone get more than 3 words in and wasn't paying attention when she allowed the others to speak... "Oh I was zoning out"...   I wish she would've zoned out a lot more, maybe there would have actually been a discussion.   So contrary to what Leigh says, girls DO take dumps, in this case on a perfectly good bombcast. 

Sure maybe she had an interesting point or 2, but it was overshadowed by her hyperactivity.  Next time Leigh's on, it will be a huge pass for me.  The fact people were actually excited to have her on? And she's actually got fans & a following? It truly boggles the mind...

To her credit. The Nazi SS uniforms were designed by Hugo Boss and are excellent looking uniforms. Considering all the terrible things the nazis did... they rolled with style.

The minute Leigh described herself as an "objective" person, I had a feeling she was so far up her own ass she would ruin this podcast with a long rant fueled with her own agenda. Low and behold I was right...

@WEGGLES: exactly...its well known... she just didn't explain/know the context well enough. hail hitler.

Her schpeel about RE sex was the most annoying thing ever. Just because 2 guys touch each other, doesn't mean it's a homo erotic act. Grow the fuck up woman.

Worst Bomcast ever. Horrible, horrible, horrible; too many cooks spoil the broth.
 
 The only part I enjoyed was when they completely ignored that annoying Alexander women by enumerating different kinds of goths.

LOL. I decided to listen to this podcast again while I played MW2. When you realize what's ahead, Leigh's insanity is hilarious. She is so full of herself.

Edited by warmonked

what the fuck. Leigh Alexander does not know how to stop talking. Please don't ever have her on again.
 
This is the first bombcast I'm not going to finish because I can't stand how she won't stop talking over everyone.

Posted by JokerSmilez

It really is too bad she got really drunk and ruined this podcast. She's actually a good writer and games journalist, most of the time.

Posted by Cheapoz

Still my favourite Bombcast moment ever is Ryan's tone of voice after Leigh leaves. 
 
So, so terse.

Posted by ZmillA

one of the best bombcasts ever. Some of you people need to get out of the house

Shit bombcast, not really just because of Leigh, but just overall kind of passive aggressive and lame, I love every other Bombcast I have ever listened to, though.

Edited by Karmann

Re-listening while I work, honestly I didn't remember this podcast, 40 minutes in, she's actually quite interesting. Way better than 2010, at least 40 minutes in, let's see where this goes... 
 
EDIT: 1:40 in, she's in hyper mode now, but at least she's talking about games, pretty annoying, but not as bad as 2010 though... 
 
EDIT2: 1:45, she left, not that bad, talking a mile a minute, but not the sloppy drunken mess of the 2010 Bombcast.

Edited by SavageM2

I thought it was kind of interesting hearing Leigh. Some of her input, there was a ton of it. :P

Going back and listening to a lot of old casts that I never got around too.  Geez this one was terrible.  I thought she was just drunk in the other E3 cast Leigh was on (2010?), but no she just likes to hear herself talk.  She wins the award for Most Interruptions in 2 hours.  I'm halfway through and shutting it down...will have to skip any future shows she is on.  "I'm objective..." followed by 2 hours of judgement.

Yeah I just listened to this and.........jesus fuck. She talks for minutes on end. I wanted to rip my ear buds out in the middle of exercising and smash them on the concrete.

You Don't Know Jack before it got made and talk about general stuff from Jellyvision. That dude should be invited again.

Jesus Christ! Now I remember why I didn't listened to this when it was fresh or watched the stream in 2010. F-ing Leigh Alexander!
