Hey... Did anyone else catch the last hotspot? Where at the end... -someone- did a Jeff Gerstman-esque ending "For all your Game (so on so forth) news stufff HOTSPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT DOT COOOOOOOOOM" kind of thing..

Did anyone else feel a little bothered by that? I mean.. that was Jeffs thing. I think maybe the only other person to do it after him was... Eh... no one I can think of. I don't know I guess I just think it's a bit... wrong.

I don't know... Maybe i'm wrong.

havent listened to the hotspot in 3 months.

unsubscribed when they added a bunch of idiots that know as much about games as a wii owning soccer mom.

Poor ryan mcdonald, richardo torres and Brian ekberg, i feel for them

I quit listening for a month and then went back. When I went back Tor Thorson left so... I was pleased. I started to get annoyed by him so... yeah.

I really don't mind it much anymore but... this just didn't seem right to me... whatsoever.

yeah same here. the last time i listened to it was when one of the new guys , name escapes me, said he had never played a GTA game and had no desire to do so.
i mean come on would you listen to a movie critics opinions if he said he had never seen the godfather and never wanted to. fuck no.
im not putting gta and godfather on the same level mind but you get my point

gamespot has some good people still there kvo, mechberg, aaron, thor, so its sad to see how shit is has become

Haven't listened to the Hotspot for at least 3 months, when all the changes happened I stopped listening. Like many.

I do still listen to the GameSpotUK Podcast tho, being from the UK and everything.

Nope, didn't bother me one thing. Not like Jeff has some kind of patent on screaming a website's name....

Same here for exactly same reasons. I would add Homer Rabarra to that list though, that dude is awesome, great energy, he should be hosting the main show, not Ryan.


It's sheer desperation...

if it was done jokingly i dont see a problem with it. It would almost be considered a head nod to giantbomb. Or self deprecating humour.

either that or its coincidence and your making something big out of something small.

All podcasts pale in comparison with "Game Scoop!" and "Podcast Beyond".

And that's the truth. The bombcast has been pretty boring, in my opinion...
