Swery gives me motivation to do things in life.

Giantbomb has done a great job getting this Interview, fine work lads.

(Yes I am wearing a generals uniform and smoking a pipe while writing this, however the uniform has no pants and the pipe is full of bubble bath)

Nice! PR make a good interview team. Get it? PR?

Aaaanyways! I love SWERY. It seems he is just made of sincerity. And coolness.

Posted by seamuspaxman

Can't you guys find some way to replace Patrick with Swery?

Posted by Tebbit

SWERY is the most adorable man I have ever seen in my life.

Also, thanks to bunch of whiny wankers in the comments, I feel compelled to impart this thought yet again:

The other dudes hired Patrick, they like him, they obviously think he fits with what Giant Bomb is all about. That means if you don't like him, you ain't as Giant Bomb as you'd like to think you are.

Spoilers: Patrick calls him an asshole

HAhahah, I dont think no one will ever let him live down for that terribly awkward attempt at humor. Unfortunately first impressions are a doozy. Im sure Paddys a great guy, but he does rub some people the wrong way, and there's just nothing anyone can do about that.

I have no idea what's going on in this comment thread, but I gotta say I'm happy you guys interviewed Swery. I would love to sit and talk story and game design with that guy.

Agreed! And he is an adorable man, to boot! I just want to give him a big ol' hug.

Posted by Plaguelord238

Really cool feature. I've always been sorta interested in this game since Boston on TVGP had been talking about it. I'm definitely going to pick it up.

@EOT: Nothing. He had to do with loving Deadly Premonition, and is a valued member of staff.

Congratulations to the people complaining about the only guy on staff who spoke up and said "yeah, sure, let's interview Swery while he's in town." You're all Grade A truth-tellers who totally get us as people, man.

Thank you, Jeff, although it really saddens me to see you having to step in people and shed that one iota of light onto the situation. I'm not even entirely sure where this firestorm comes from, I mean, do I think Patrick is funny all of the time? No. However that does not diminish the content that he produces. I don't always agree with him, but I shouldn't It what makes him a journalist and makes me a cautious informed reader. If I wanted a website that just regurgitated my every opinion, I'd lock myself in the basement and start filming.

The Patrick hate is pretty funny. I must admit he's not my favorite member of the GB team, but lay off the poor dude

Wanted to punch him in the face repeatedly after the Nolan North interview.

Why that Nolan North guy was insulting him the whole way though the interview, it was just harmless banter.

Posted by ExplodeMode

I'd really like to see some kind of video or at least images for a game only a few months out, especially if it bullet points improved visuals.

Why Patrick? the only guy that didn't play Deadly Premonition in the Endurace Run does the interview..

He has played the game. I get the impression he actually likes it more then the staff.

I think Patrick is part of the staff...

I don't

Despite seeing Giant Bomb's last interview with SWERY, I don't remember noticing the facial tics he has while talking which I think is fascinating. Such a stand-up and fun guy. Glad to see some positivity and interaction from a Japanese developer with the Western audience.

In his immortal words: I LOVE YOU ALL!

Posted by Connelo

Yo Patrick, do yo thing boy, I ain't mad at'cha.

Seriously, i thought the Patrick hate was a joke for a while but christ, whats going on. If you don't like him, that's fine. People sitting there badmouthing him are idiots, not because they don't like him, but because they feel the need to comment about their dislike. It's easy to feel insignificant in this world, and maybe thats why people like to complain about things that niggle at them.

Giant Bomb is great.

Stop being assholes.

Awesome to see swery back in the office, dude is fantastic, great interview always nice to see games that deserve it get a bit of time in the spotlight, After watching this i went to google to see if there was any news on a pc version and bloody amazon UK had the PS3 version listed under the wrong header so it showed up and I got so excited.

Only thing i can find is that rising star would need a backer to bring the game over and i hope that happens since my xbox is broke and i dont have a PS3

Posted by JoeyRavn

Wow. Talk about taking a shit in a delicious coffee, vocal anti-Patrick section of the GB community. Stay classy like this and I'm sure we'll get many more nice things.

This makes me sad that Jeff had to come in here and say this. I hope all the people whining like 5 years old are embarrassed that Jeff had to scold you like children. Have some class, I come to GB to get away from all the whining 13 year olds acting like entitled pieces of shit. Patrick is cool and brings a fresh look to a lot of aspects of GB and if you simple minded idiots can not deal with change get out and go to Kotaku and pollute their site. Ugh, I am done my food is getting cold.

Quoted for all of the truth!

Hope that they're embarrassed? I didn't even watch this video or read any of these comments until the hoo-hah was all over and I'm fucking embarrassed. I feel like I did something wrong and I generally like the entire editorial staff as plain old dudes (even when I don't like or agree with some of their content, which doesn't happen all the time or anything).

I thought maybe the comments were just never addressed, but after I raised this in another thread tonight, it was explained that the comments which are just mean and not constructive actually are handled. It is unfathomable how much crap that means there must be if we're just seeing the garbage that still is left behind or that is in the limbo between being posted and finally processed. I am hesitant to ask for an opportunity to ever see what the feed of comments around here would look like in an unfiltered state.

I feel almost obligated to, like, do something. I wish there was something I could do. I'm as old as these guys and would genuinely love a way to collectively reinforce the community's appreciation for the work they do. Even though you know on an intellectual level that the bullshit is just coming from a vocal minority, it's that loud minority that fucks your shit up and sticks in your head. If there was some sort of a money-button that we could just keep hitting that kept giving dollars of appreciation (other than just a plain old subscription, which I already have for years ahead), then I would hit the shit out of it.

You never want to see that. When shit like this goes on and it's on the live chat, oh man, just don't read the chat because the comments from that minority are just cruel and uncalled for. To give you a taste, one guy brought up Patrick's deceased father by @ ing him on the chat. Pretty horrible shit that I wish I never saw.

@Branthog: In that thread your talking about. I was about to lay down some of the worst comments towards Patrick I saw, in that time Gamer shut it down. I shall send a PM giving you an idea of what it really it like now and in past.

I'll race you for the platinum. Though I skipped the 'hard' achievement on the Xbox version. Crap.

Swery just seems like such a likable dude and his enthusiasm is pretty hard to dismiss. Even if you never intend to play Deadly Premonition, he's one of those guys that you just have to be grateful that he's out there making stuff. I do wish that and had more time to speak with him, though.

Also, all three of them look like SUPER NERDS on the couches, there. :D

there is a man named SCOOPS and he fucking OWNS. gotta agree with Gerstman on this one.

Posted by Kinapuff

Great interview guys. Well put together, and you covered more or less all questions I had about the upcoming PS3 edition.

Shame there are still a bunch of wankers on here whining about Patrick. Pretty pathetic, meanwhile mildly entertaining knowing that Patrick is here to stay, and that people are taking it to heart.

Thanks guys for having Swery over for a cup of coffee!! I saw on his Twitter he was coming to SF so I'd hoped you would. I don't have a 360, so I've been waiting almost 3 years for this game. And thanks to the Endurance Runs, I know what I'm in for. It also made me watch Twin Peaks for the first time, what higher praise can you give?

My pleasure ya'll =)

just adding my voice to the chorus saying thanks for posting that feedback throwback. i miss having abbie heppe's voice around on the press' side of things, but you can't blame her for going on to respawn. it's also fun to see patrick's OG coverage of that infinity ward flare-up- i think people forget that the dude was instrumental in all that.

I thought Deadly Premonition was garbage but I like this Swery dude. Hopefully his next game turns out good.

Someone should give SWERY a team of 200 talented people with a budget of 100 Million dollars and let him design his dream game.

Patrick didn't work here when the Endurance Run was going on.

Yes, you've just illustrated the point that Atwa was trying to make. I'm not bashing Patrick here (a statement that is now a requirement whenever saying anything involving Patrick) but a lot of people have fond memories of the crew playing through that game and it seems only appropriate that one of those guys would conduct the interview.

It's probably because they already interviewed him. Patrick probs has actual questions.
