It's supposed to be 'You be soft'.

" now, start updating the list with possible reasons why he pronounces things that way...obviously "Frah-gee-lay" is a reference to A Christmas Story..right? "
I would love to if I had the slightest idea. I could post in user ideas, like yours and ColnelT's.   
This is obviously a fair bit after A Christmas Story but I'm pretty sure I remember Homer Simpson saying "frah-gee-lay" at some point (although that itself could be a reference to ACS). "
yeah well that point it just turns into a chain, Homer saying Frah-Gee-Lay would be a reference to ACS, so even if Ryan was referencing the simspons, in the end he would be referencing ACS......my head is going to explode.. "
To make this worse, both ACS and The Simpsons could be referencing an older use of this joke. Groucho Marx in  "Animal Crackers" from the 1930's. Mr. Davis is either an old soul, or he is the undead Groucho Marx

Dude you are missing how he says "barcelona", it's something like barfelona. Watch the wheelmen quicklook and see.

This is suggestive.

Just a quick note - "robit" is also from Homestar Runner.

Saying "Neen-ten-doe" like Iwata is enough of a flourish in my book.
edit: Also Kah-Nah-Dah is historically accurate.

Woops! Thank you sir! Fixed it! 
@Brackynews: I've been wrestling with whether or not I should add this one. I will now, since you have created demand! Haha.

I've been known to commonly use robit, Batmin, and zambie, ever since I started listening to the wonderful words of Ryan T. Davis.

Sonic Colours?

The entomology for "Oh-Hi-ooo" might be a reference to the Neil Young "Four Dead in Ohio" song. 
Also, I might be mistaken but I think his pronunciation of nintendo might be more related to Mario than Iwata.

Such win. And true, too.

Pretty interesting unique list.

#41 might be a reference to 1943's Warner Bros. short Falling Hare starring Bugs Bunny.  

  ...at the 1:30ish mark, Bugs pronounces 'Diabolical Sabotage' and I've long adapted that pronunciation, as such whenever Ryan uses sabotage all I can think of is this old cartoon.

I don't know if it's been mentioned but I think the "Min" prefix is a call-back to when carrie gouskous said "Ray-min" once on a podcast instead of 'Rayman', without a hint of irony, and was subsequently mocked thenceforth for doing so.

Number 16. It's a reference from Kindergarten Cop.  Arnold- I have a headache. kid- maybe it's a tumor.  Arnold-AAAGH IT IS NOT A TOO-MAH. IT'S NOT A TOO-MAH

In the Garshasp Quick Look he says "camera" as "calm-ah-rah". It's at around 6:10

Posted by Conny

He probably says "piratas" on account of it's the Spanish word for pirates. 

Posted by BisonHero

Ryan consistently pronounces Ubisoft as "Ooh-bee-soft". He very occasionally seems to remember that it is actually pronounced "Yoo-bee-soft", like in this week's podcast (7/19/2011).

Nier Quick Look. 23 minutes and 30 seconds. "Path is blocked" is pronounced by Ryan in a flourishy manner.

Query - "kwair-ee"

Posted by gakushya

if i gave you the IPA for every word would u put it on the list?

Posted by hazyship

Pirates, guerrilla and hurricane all seem like Ryan using the Spanish equivalents of those words, with varying degrees of success.

Posted by Deusoma

Fuck, Ryan Davis. RIP, big guy, your verbal flourishes are just one of the many reasons you'll never be forgotten.
