Paul & Adam. Sorry Norm.

#4 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

After a slew of easy choices, 2 real tough ones at once. Man, I... I just don't know.

#5 Posted by Maystack (906 posts) -

Barnett was an easy pick, but I was split at the second one. Had to go with Norm in the end though.

#6 Edited by MooseyMcMan (11003 posts) -

Why can't I vote for Adam Boyes and Norm Chan?

Edit: Never mind.

Had to vote for Norm and Paul, because the amazing grudge match TNT between Norm and Brad in StarCraft II was great, and I love the trio of Paul Barnett Quick Looks from 2010 (that was him in that Game Room one, the X-Men one, and the XBLA Quake one, right?).

#10 Posted by FLStyle (4694 posts) -

Voted for Paul and Boyes. Would've voted for Norm if he was up against Paul, ah well.

#11 Posted by Winternet (8018 posts) -

@MooseyMcMan: you are right on those quick-looks.

I wanted to vote for Adam and Norman; but will instead vote for Bob and Adam.

Sorry Jose Roberto Colayco, you have been out-gunned sir.

As for Chan vs. Boyes, I gotta go for Chan as he hits Whiskey Media closer to home.

#25 Posted by bybeach (4826 posts) -

Just vote for Norm..what about Will Smith and Norman Chan. Miss those guys....no slight mean't to the other guys really. I simply regarded Will and Norm as participants for GB, I know they had their own thing.

#26 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1246 posts) -

Have to go with Barnett and Chan for this one. Was a tough one between Adam Boyes but I have never heard of Colayco.

#27 Posted by Seraphim (104 posts) -

@JohnDudebro: **salutes**

#28 Posted by ZombiePie (5665 posts) -

Bob Colayco is the reason why the HotSpot was created. His efforts were what introduced me to Jeff and the rest of the staff in the first place so he wins in my book.

All you whippersnappers with your new podcast guests and your baggy jeans and your rap music. Why, in my day, our podcasts always starred Rich, Jeff, Bob and a rotating guest! And it was an hour, all news, none of these three hour pizza discussions you get now! And goddammit we liked it that way!

RESPECT YOUR ELDERS: VOTE COLAYCO

#31 Posted by kristov_romanov (459 posts) -

Why is more than the one, true, choice?

#chan

#32 Posted by Little_Socrates (5677 posts) -

You guys know that voting Adam and Chan would just pit them against each other on the next level of the bracket, right? You're just being asked to make the decision one step earlier.

Also, glad my roommate shares my sensibilities, as I can't vote multiple times from the same IP. Barnett/Boyes. Norm is a fine choice, but the dynamic between Johnny V and Adam Boyes is almost unstoppably fantastic. Those not voting for Boyes must not have watched those livestreams from right before Johnny got married.

...though, then again, someone could criticize me right back for not watching any of The Amazing Test either.

Barnett is going to take this no matter who he's up against

That's the best rhyming cheer I've ever heard.

Damn putting me up against Paul Barnett? I think I wouldn't even vote for myself against Paul Barnett.

#37 Edited by Matthew (1912 posts) -

Threw in my vote for the Boyes/Barnett ballot. Chan is awesome and all, but when it relates to Giant Bomb, the only thing he has going for him is the Brad Starcraft thing. Adam's sole involvement is with GB, and we all know how that turned out. Tell me, has Chan been in a video THIS impactful??

#38 Posted by sopachuco13 (392 posts) -

Adam and Norman should win this grudge match.

#39 Posted by JoeyRavn (4973 posts) -

Paul & Norm.

This is GIANT BOMB Golden Duder.... NOT, Whiskey Media Golden Duder.... Why are people voting for Chan in such high numbers??? - Yes i love Norm too, and also feel very loyal to him.... but come on, he hasn't contributed anywhere near the amount of awesomeness to Giant Bomb that Adam has... Think of all the amazing moments that Adam has bought to the Bombcasts, Quick Looks, the many random videos, and particularly the E3 'late night beer cast' specials...

Sort it out duders

This, so much. I wasn't taking it too seriously before, but shit just got real.

#46 Posted by ComradeKhan (687 posts) -

I want to vote for Adam and Norm.

#47 Posted by Winternet (8018 posts) -

Unfortunately, this poll will have to be closed earlier than usual. I'm not entirely sure when it will be closed, but it will be in the next 4 to 8 hours (as opposed to 11 hours from now)

Also, Day Six will be up earlier than usual, again, in the next 4 to 8 hours.
