Not that I necessarily agree with them, but Giant Bomb isn't Giant Bomb without those cats. How long have you been here?

It's not really what I expected from the Giantbomb community, I'm a little disappointed in the people here. One guy shows up on the Bombcast and people are ready to bail? Cripe. Relax, folks.

He sounds like he's on a walkie-talkie? He's not in the same location? Buy a new speaker.

Yes it is. People are replaceable. Giant Bomb is a video-focused gaming website, run by people with good senses of humor. Every hire for in-office operations WM has a great sense of humor. If Brad left, it'd still be Giant Bomb. Same if Jeff retired. It'd be different, but it'd still be Giant Bomb, a website about video games with a good sense of humor and a great video sense.

I won't be here the day after one of those guys leaves complaining about how it just isn't the same. Whiskey has always hired awesome people, and have faith they'll continue to do so, even when they're replacing someone.

Man. They need to find a way to have a five-man podcast without so much crosstalk. Unexpectedly, most of it came from Jeff and Ryan; Brad couldn't get a word in edgewise. Patrick seemed totally well-behaved, though, even a bit understated.
Posted by EVHKwick
@Napalm: Exactly.

Also, dug the Bombcast this week. Hope they'll give Patrick full reign during the news segment.

Yay!

On the DS version of CoH, you could go to caves or places there were random encounters and grind XP and resources there.

Keep Patrick!

I'm so excited about this. Sitting here in my college apartment hearing about Mortal Kombat is making me cry inside...with joy!!

Posted by SpunkyHePanda

Hey. You can go back into the elf campaign after finishing the elf campaign. I did it.

I realized recently that playing Elder Scrolls games as a pure warrior is boring. Magic son, that's where its at. Levitating. Invisibility. Summoning. It makes the game way more interesting.

A few people including myself express our thoughts on Patrick being included on the bombcast and suddenly:

1. I must believe the entire site is broken because of it.
2. I hate Patrick and everything surrounding him.
3. I'm a total whiner with nothing legitimate to say.
and 4. I'm apparently now threatening to leave.

Spoiler: None of these things are true.

People need to stop immediately retreating into the safety of "HATERS GONNA HATE" one-liners and make more constructive comments than just assuming any detractors are fit-throwing whiners who hate everything. Is a comment only valid around here if it's praise?

Posted by Zero_

I like Patrick, he'll settle into the podcast fine.

Posted by Little_Socrates

Sort of half-listened to the podcast, half-not. Some good discussion in here, and also an adequate way to find out about how awesome MK is!

Posted by CharAznable

Patrick made an excellent addition to the team, you fools are crazy. I actually thought this was the best Bombcast in some time, it was great.

Grandma's Cookies will never be the same again to me. *tear*

I liked Patrick on here. I think a permanent five man band could work. A new dynamic and a little shake-up sounds nice.

Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to stop being reasonable on the internet.

Hmm. If this new guy can make the news here on GB like that of RockPaperShotgun (though obviously on a different range of topics than they do), I'll be very happy. RPS is where I go for my PC gaming info, and is the second site I check every night when I get home from work, right after Giantbomb.

Those guys know their stuff, and know their audience. I can't think of a better site for the new guy to emulate when it comes to gaming news coverage.

Good luck, new guy, and welcome!

Posted by fox01313

Well think that what I thought was true, after being on G4's Feedback podcast for a while, being here he did a pretty good job. Not sure if he or other GB crew will fill in for a 5th slot more often but definitely was entertaining & informative as always :)

skyrim better fucking have more than one dude voicing the black guys this time

@Marokai: Bravo on that post, sir. And as I said earlier, I totally agree with all of your sentiments.

This seems to be taking its time showing up on UK itunes, I need it before I go to work  :(

Posted by supermike6

I like Patrick and change is good. Haters gonna hate.

Posted by MachoFantastico

Great to hear Patrick. Change can be a good thing folks and I would like to hear more of Patrick on the Bombcast. He fit in well. 

Plus this made me want Mortal Kombat even more, which I didn't think possible. 
Posted by GalacticPunt

Goddamn, Vinnie started with a show-stopper.  "Grandma's cookie" indeed.  I laughed my ass off.

Posted by Warihay

Happy to hear Patrick on. A great addition to the team.

@Brad New Zealand retailers aren't shipping to Australia, I have to get a friend to post it in a non descript dvd case.

Posted by Slaker117

Dear Mr. Davis,

Thank you for making good on your promise to me to ensure fuller Speed Tree coverage on this podcast by holding Mr. Shoemaker's feet to the fire for his failure to do so. My trust in you has not been misplaced.

Posted by Burn1n9m4n

Just FYI, you guys can go back to previous campaigns in Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. You just have to finish the first few minutes of the next campaign, exit the game, and then just select the previous campaign from the map screen.

Posted by Nev

As enjoyable a Bombcast as usual. Thanks, guys.

Posted by ky326

Bring back Patrick.

I'm totally fine with keplek, but yeah, people on this site need to learn about criticism.

Do people WANT GB to turn into an insular, inbred-like community like TGWTG?

I like Patrick, he fits in nice with the other duders.

Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials

I liked Patrick on the show. I think he would be a great stand-in for the next time someone is on assignment.

But I still don't think more than 4 dudes should be on at once after this. It's just too many people trying to talk in a lot of cases.

People need to learn about criticism on both sides. As long as half the critical comments on this site are phrased in the bitchiest way possible, half of the response to the criticism will continue to be blindly defensive (referring to no one in particular either way, in case it wasn't obvious). And then that just encourages the bitchy people.

So it's pretty much going to be this way forever.

I wonder if any of the bombcast crew have ever played the single player campaign of Blazblue, because that game has an amazing story and cast of characters. You can tell a  lot of care and attention went into creating the world of that game, and the characters just have a ton of personality. I haven't played MK yet. but Blazblue and its sequel have had the best story mode of any fighting game I've played thus far. 

Posted by Valkyr

Ryan sounded a bit rude with his sarcastic comments about Brad coverage of Rage and Skyrim, isn't he the same dude that went to Valve and didn't get any scoop or important piece of information about anything?. I don't know, it sounded to me like he was trying to make Brad look bad only to make his subpar trip to Valve look better.

Posted by Etrips3

 Rage is bringing Interstate '82 back! ;)

Posted by kalmis

New guy was pretty good. Would have preferred to hear bit more where he came from. Going to bunch of E3's is not really accomplishment in my eyes.

I can think of no worse fate.
Edited by CptBedlam

Wow, Patrick fits in really well. Much better than I expected. I guess it helps that he and Brad know each other forever, Brad appeared to be more lively, too.

Have Patrick on the bombcast as often as possible!
