Sorry, Pachter. It's just bad luck that you were matched up against Rich.

#4 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3906 posts) -

Pach attack gets whacked. Rich takes no prisoners.

#5 Posted by jakob187 (21691 posts) -

Man, Pachter got a raw deal on this one. LOL

As for the second competition, I'm torn. The Lang Zone is a magical place, but being from Texas, I feel like it would be a sin to not vote for someone nicknamed "Cowboy".

Richard K Gallup is the fucking man

#7 Posted by Welding (145 posts) -

I love Pachter but the win definitely has to go to Rich here.

Gallup/Lang 2012.

#9 Posted by Little_Socrates (5683 posts) -

I know I'm voting Lang, but I love the other two.

...roommate says Pachter, I'm siding with him. Sorry, Rich. I love you, but Pachter offers something literally nobody else who visits the site can offer.

Gotta go with Gallup & Lang, it was tough though.

#11 Posted by Icicle7x3 (1189 posts) -

I want to go to the Lang Zone.

#12 Posted by Olqavtoras (227 posts) -

I feel sorry for Pachter =/

Gallup & Lang for this one!

#13 Posted by AlisterCat (5635 posts) -

Nooooo, Pachter. Wanted him to win but seems unlikely.

#14 Posted by SmasheControllers (2551 posts) -

If Pachter wasn't matched with Rich he would have easily won.

#15 Posted by S0ndor (2716 posts) -

Have to go with Pachter. Gallup has a history with the guys, but his actual involvement in the community is limited to a handful of appearances to plug Amalur.

#16 Posted by JoeyRavn (4995 posts) -

I can't stand Pachter. Go Gallup. And I guess... Cowboy? I don't really know this Lang guy, and I've seen Cowboy a couple times around GB.

#17 Edited by KaneRobot (1689 posts) -

I will never vote for Michael Pachter for anything, unless it's "Who do you never want to hear from again, ever? EVER?" You should do that poll next.

The next time Pachter says anything worthwhile on games will be the first.

The Devil's eyebrow and Dave Lang.

#19 Posted by Demoskinos (15019 posts) -

Pachter got robbed!

#20 Posted by BonOrbitz (2216 posts) -

Is JJWeatherman going to vote for himself?

#21 Posted by Winternet (8025 posts) -

There's still 24 hours left for you to vote on your favorite. Will that be an old time duder or a wacky analyst? A guy with its own zone or a guy with cowboy right in his name?

#22 Posted by ChrisTaran (1644 posts) -

Had to go with the Gallup/Lang ticket.

I love me some Pachter, but Rich is a no-brainer for me.

#23 Posted by Ben_H (3384 posts) -

I saw an article ripping apart a comment Pachter made the other day, it wasn't game related or anything, it was about something he said regarding a hooded sweatshirt Mark Zuckerberg was wearing being inappropriate for the thing Zuckerberg was at.  The person who wrote the article certainly seemed to have a bone to pick with Pachter though.

#24 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Have to say this is an easy one. Gallup and the Lang Zone.

#25 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

You better call Kenny Loggins, 'cause YOU'RE IN THE DANGER LANG ZONE

You really selling it. Right on!

#27 Posted by Turambar (6813 posts) -

Voting Pachter and Lang, but we all know who's taking the first competition.

#28 Posted by UnrealDP (1223 posts) -

I like Pachter, but Rich's got to take it.

#29 Posted by GirnBlanston (102 posts) -

Tough draw for Pach-man.

#30 Posted by Kaiserreich (711 posts) -

Pachter sucks.

#31 Posted by FateOfNever (1848 posts) -

I had to vote for Gallup and Cowboy. While not spelled the same, the humor of having Gallup (gallop) and Cowboy paired together made me chuckle.

#32 Posted by ajamafalous (12040 posts) -

People picked Pachter over Rich?
The fuck?

But what has Rich Gallup done for me lately? Aside from awkwardly mention KoA: Reckoning DLC that nobody gives a shit about on the PAX East panel?
