@flawless2c: "You're overweight, you drink and you smoke! Get healthier!!" isn't very insightful or helpful, especially when it comes from some random dude on the internet.

So what, you're upset the 40k ripoff is being ripped off? Too bad for them.

Damnit. Don't tease us with your mice, Will Smith.

Wow, this is probably the most serious and chill Bombcast that I have ever heard them do. Almost no joking around at all. Obviously understandable since they all came back from a very busy week and are probably all kind of sick, but it's still weird. 
 
Still a very informative and entertaining podcast though!

I can't stop laughing at this part in the video.

because you're obviously not telling him anything that he doesn't already know.

You know how shitty it is to put on the spot like this?  You're an asshole, bro. "
He's not being an asshole, IMO. As a former obese dude myself before I lost 80 pounds (and counting!) I have been sick once in the past year since losing this weight. Before, I would get sick on a monthly basis. And don't forget back problems. I played american football in high school as a lineman, so that didn't help either. Look, it's his life, and he can live it the way he wants to. But it's going to be a shorter life if he doesn't make a change for the better. It's not being rude. It's just stating the facts.  
 
Sometimes people don't understand constructive criticism.

If Ryan was thoughtful enough to realize his current lifestyle is drastically reducing his quality of life in the long term then he would have already been in the process of changing his bad habits. But so far that does not appear to be the case.
 
What I don't get is that here is an anonymous internet user wishing that it would be a good idea for Ryan to start living healthier and you are belittling him for it? Most people consider themselves lucky if they get just one person to care for them and Ryan's internet fame has allowed him to be in a position where even people he personally does not know offer their well wishes to him. He should consider himself extremely fortunate for that.

@flawless2c: You can always send him a pm if you're actually sincere.
 
@Three0neFive: I think Ryan doesn't take our comments seriously enough to be offended by that.

You guys need to realize he's not trying to offend anyone here but rather giving some sincere advice.  I agree with this man.

Torchlight in one ear, and the bombcast in the other. That's my morning SET!

" Damn, i hope ryan gets better. I kind of expect him to become ill more than anyone else with him being a smoker, drinker and lets say someone who enjoys a large quantity of food. But its still terrible to hear about him not being well. "
Ryan smokes? ... weird. But him being sick so often in such a short time makes me think he just didnt recover right from his first sickness due to work. He probably just needs a week off for full recovery and he will be fine.  
 
And to everyone just saying "you are overweight, loose some of that!" ... with all due respect: fu.

@K9: Drug addicts know they're drug addicts yet they still use.  It's simple minded to think its as easy as not wanting to be fat to make a person to suddenly start living like the p90x guy.  
 
The fuck is wrong with you all, everyone seems to be sick in the office, not just Ryan.  So he's out sick; the only person that should be giving him shit is his boss which I highly doubt isn't.  It's none of your business or your concern that Ryan is taking some days off.  Fuck off people.  Enjoy your bombcast.
Edited by Zabant
@2HeadedNinja: i agree with the weight comment.
 
There is a difference between being concerned for someone's health and fitness as an admirer and somebody who wishes them a long life and "LOL FAT PEOPLE IN MY LOCATION PLEASE EVACUATE XD"

So excited for the 3DS. Hopefully I'm able to acquire one. I froth at the mouth just thinking about getting the 3DS box, opening and taking apart its insides one section at a time. Manuals, cards, charger, etc. and then the portable itself. Then I'd make sure to read and look at everything just to stall the inevitable awesomeness of powering on the console for the first time.

Best wishes, get well soon Ryan! Watch No Escape on netflix instant queue for an instant health boost!

Posted by Ithmoliar

Some of the comments seem really inappropriate.... I thought we were here to listen to games talk and random nonsense (damn I miss the energy drink taste test!!!) 
 
Keep reaching the stars boys, another great podcast!

Posted by karmaghost

Haven't listened to the podcast yet, but if Ryan, Brad, and perhaps other Giant Bomb staff are sick, I think I can pinpoint the exact night I too became ill. 
 
Get well soon, everyone!

I really don't see why expressing concern for someone is getting the kind of vitriol that it is. Ragging on someone for that is seriously weird.

Only an hour and 22 minutes. :(

Everyone seems really worn out after PAX. If course, they also just had GDC, and for some they had DICE right before that. Luckily there isn't much going on for a little while.

Best possible Bombcast picture.

I claim at least partial responsibility for Brad being so hungover on Friday. I brought the boys beer on Thursday for Rock Band night (I'm A Wizard, This Is Witbier and My Notebook: Amber) and since Brad was on the sidelines for a few we definitely put a dent in those growlers. Sorry Brad!

Man, I would love to try some I'm a Wizard, This is Witbier.

The character in Prey 2 is NOT Tommy as was announced when the game's concept was revealed.  I like the concept as the only thing cool about the first Prey was the native American parts.  Oh, and vagina doors.

Besides using that great photo of Brad behind the monitor, the one main thing that keeps me from going to Pax (ye olde Pax Plague) strikes again. Hope all bombcast/whiskey media crew gets better soon. 
 
Plus agreed with Jeff, I can understand a few publishing deals or other things going on at places like Pax but WTF on the preordering stuff, that just seems stupid to put at an event like that.

@flawless2c:   Yeah I saw this video of him when he was younger and in his early early Gamespot days I think, but I couldn't find it.He was a lot thinner in that vid here he is kind of bulking up.So question is....if was so fit.....what made him change that.I was shocked when I saw it because that meant Ryan could go back to those days.Just needs some dedication.

Ryan's immune system gets a 2/5.

That's the part where I totally lost it. I bust up laughing through the entirety of the rest simply because I was still thinking about terrified/confused Brad face.

Where is season 4 gentlemen?

Posted by MeatSim

Ryan sure is on injured reserve a lot. He is the Greg Oden of podcasting.

@xXwindoverXx:  Yeah, I wanted to say something to that effect to Ryan but thought I'd get flamed. It's only 'cause we care Ryan! It would be awesome to see you lose weight.

I usually pre-order games when I know it will be limited like Atlus games, where I can't them on shelves in bestbuy or other stores.
