On our first episode of a brand new podcast called Giant Bomb Community Podcast(GBCP for short), @phatmac, @ackbarthegreat, @atlas, @toowalrus, @reddenblack, and @believer258 discuss a wide range of gaming topics that include Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, and much more. We also discuss some Giant Bomb community stuff that is mostly about Ryan Davis drinking breast milk and sitting on cakes. We also discuss Bioshock Infinite in a spoiler discussion at the end of the episode. You can listen to the podcast in two ways. You can view the recording on youtube which is at the top of this post or listen to it in audio form.

But seriously, good job guys. Are you six the actual official roster now?

#3 Posted by ReddenBlack (148 posts) -

Not 100% sure yet, but we will probably have two new people next week, and an occasionally rotating cast.

It's the first episode, so I can't imagine anything being set in stone.

I know that nobody necessarily likes or knows me but I'd love to be on one of these one day

Ms. Bombcast

@demoskinos: I'll (hopefully) be there on time next week to join in, haha, as well as at least one other. The plan is a rotating seat or two.

Can't wait to listen to this myself. If the testcast was any indication, it should be great.

What is this crap? Nah I kid, this is pretty good for the first episode. Need an RSS feed?

#16 Edited by IrrelevantJohn (1174 posts) -

@reddenblack: ok cool. The only thing I recommend for you guys is to lower the bitrate to maybe 64kbps or make it mono. The file is freakin huge!

#17 Posted by ReddenBlack (148 posts) -

@irrelevantjohn: we actually had a discussion about that, thanx for the info!

@mrfluke I think we are looking into it...

Really glad to be a part of this. I had zero podcast experience before this, and maybe that shows, but it was still a lot of fun to do this. And yes, I definitely had plenty of stuff to say about BioShock.

#22 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13807 posts) -

I still have intreast if you want someone else.

#23 Posted by Sander (425 posts) -


Just starting, first impressions: Love the diversity! Sounds like an excellent group who'll be interesting to listen to.

Hope people will try to interrupt one another less.

I'm only the third person to subscribe? There should be many, many more than that.

#24 Edited by ReddenBlack (148 posts) -

@sander: Thanx for subscribing! We discussed some ideas on not talking over each other. It should get better in the next episode

I'll keep you updated. :)

#26 Edited by mrfluke (5799 posts) -

@marino Gots another one that interesting for the community showcase.

#27 Posted by LackingSaint (2118 posts) -

I like this! I agree that the Ghost fights were pretty bunk in Bioshock. If you guys ever need a backup brit, i'm always up for a go-around.

#28 Edited by kishinfoulux (3090 posts) -

If you are indeed open to others being on every once in a while I'd love to do so. Also good work guys.

#29 Edited by Phatmac (5927 posts) -

Cool, we're on the main page of Giant Bomb. :)

#30 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (5347 posts) -

Nice work, I really hope the forums make it back to the front page soon because I feel behind on what the hell is happening in here. Yes I can't be bothered to constantly hit the forums tab every time I want to browse.

#31 Posted by mlarrabee (3663 posts) -

Ha! My question on these forums regarding whether or not ICO stands up is vindicated!

It's all happened so fast. I'm really glad that I jumped on board with your idea early.

#33 Posted by AlexW00d (7265 posts) -

Is this why y'all were in our mumble server the other week? If you want yourselves a private channel instead of just using an established game's channel all you need to do is ask. If that wasn't the reason y'all were in there, think of this as me offering you a private channel if you want. Skype is probably much better though? I have no idea of the bitrate skype uses.

#34 Posted by TooWalrus (13371 posts) -

@alexw00d: We're using skype now, that first week was pretty much 3 hours of 12 people shooting the shit and sometimes talking about podcast stuff.

@believer258 why didn't you tell me about this?! D: I'm hurt!

Oh God. Sorry, it didn't cross my mind to post about this in the PM!

#37 Edited by RetroVirus (1617 posts) -

Subscribed duders. Looking forward this! You all probably have ideas of what to do about cast members and rotations, but I'd be down to come on some time if you were all into that. (Random community guests, whatever). Again, you all probably have planned this out already. Cheers!

You couldn't call this Bomb Should Have a Face 2? Does @mattbodega own the name to the rights or something?

#39 Edited by Ghostiet (5832 posts) -

I wanna be on the next episode. : (

#40 Edited by Phatmac (5927 posts) -

I'll invite you to the next episode Ghost! :)

#41 Posted by Sergotron (575 posts) -

Great 1st go guys. Well done.

Only thing that could have been better was not to be held back by worry of spoilers. I think worrying about spoilers really hurts the conversation.

#42 Edited by Snail (8827 posts) -

Nice podcast guys. I'm actually listening to this, and I don't listen to a whole range of video-game podcasts. It's being a fun listen.

So far the only criticism I have is that six people might be a bit too much for a Skype podcast. Maybe have only 4 or 5 people next time? It seemed that you started interrupting one another a fair bit. For this type of VoIP podcast you were surprisingly well coordinated though, so maybe this is just scrutinous bickering.

When can we expect the next episode?

#43 Edited by ReddenBlack (148 posts) -

@snail: probably either monday or tuesday.

Why is the download version cut off?

#50 Edited by TooWalrus (13371 posts) -

Why is the download version cut off?

That's the first time anyone's mentioned this. I just downloaded the file myself, and it seemed to run the whole 1 hour 57 minutes and end with us bullshitting about e-mailing us pictures of cats. Maybe the download got cut off, it should be 107MB (which is something we'll probably be fixing for tomorrows episode.)
