Anyone else wish they would kind of mix it up with the Quick Looks more often? Of the last 29 Quick Looks Ryan has been in 19 of them. It was just kind of annoying until recently with games like Quantum Conundrum and Lego Batman 2 where he got frustrated at the game and it really brought everything down. He also hosts the Bombcasts and TNT so we get a lot of him there as well.

I don't dislike Ryan, or any of the crew. I just wish they would mix it up a bit. Anyone else feel this way?

Not really, I like Ryan.

#3 Posted by CaLe (3943 posts) -

I like negativity in my quicklooks thank you very much.

#4 Posted by jking47 (1209 posts) -

I think Vinny, Drew, and Dave should do every quick look, and from now on we only do quick looks of obscure PC games.

#5 Posted by RenMcKormack (1074 posts) -

Don't try to take all that Ryan at once. Spread it out over time and let the experience last. Plus prolonged exposure to Ryan can cause priaprisim.

Patrick is in too many.

ryan brings a great energy. right from the sun. always raring to go!

I just wish we had more Dave content. I feel like since the move we have had less videos with him. I enjoyed having him on TNT last night.

At least we don't get Patrick and his awful habit of sitting at menu screens while he talks about the game. I like the guy but that is one habit he needs to lose.

#10 Posted by simkas (354 posts) -

I require more Jeff. He barely does quick looks anymore.

Don't like Ryan? Fuck on off to another site. Problem solved.

#13 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

@Roger_Klotz: Well, he's busy building a new website!

Really, all of them have funny habits while they try to talk and play. Talking while playing a game really isn't easy; maybe they could try having a third person start playing the games while other people talk during the Quick Looks? Or go ahead and record the gameplay and then talk over it? Neither of those sound great but it's getting annoying seeing them sit at menus or run around in circles while trying to explain something. And all of them at some point do such things.

I dont mind but I havent watched too many quick looks lately.....

#18 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

They have to use all of those spare Ryans though , thankfully they melt pretty quickly so we won't have to worry about having surplus of Ryans in the future.

i can't believe you took the time to count them all

#21 Posted by wjb (1653 posts) -

Meh, I don't notice stuff like that. Any Quick Look is better than no Quick Look.

I'm sure they discuss who does or wants to do what, and I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the person's strengths or their experience with the franchise or genre.

#22 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3050 posts) -

As long as Alex stays out of them, I don't care who else is in the Quick Looks.

I adore the Vinny/Jeff duo that doesn't happen that often anymore. But we definitely need more Flight Club and Random PC Games.

You're kidding, right?

I just did the first page. Most are labeled in the video comment so it was pretty simple.

Now if I did all of them I'd be crazy. Or a statistician.

But I don't wanna. Ryan's awesome. But too much awesome does exist.

Ryan reading this thread.

As long as he isnt yelling at interns.

That was the only time I found him unbearable.

Fuck on off for a little while until awesome becomes awesome again?

#32 Posted by Yorkin (142 posts) -

I agree, Ryan's cool, but so is Vinny, Drew, Brad, Dave, and Jeff. I like Patrick too, but there doesn't seem to be any shortage of him on the site either.

#33 Posted by iAmJohn (6114 posts) -

Oh look, another one of these threads. And it turned into yet another "let's bitch about Patrick RUNING THE ENTIRE OPERATION" thread. You people are so predictable.

#34 Posted by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

Ryan fatigue is the least of my worries. I've had Brad-fatigue for nearly 2 years now, can't stand the dude.

Man, that thread is wonderful. He's bitching that people have differing opinions and then in the next sentence starts arguing that we're all staff sycophants? Hahaha oh wow!

I thought all of these threads were threads complaining about Patrick taking over the site?

Watch less QLs?

#40 Posted by Aaron_G (1611 posts) -

By complaining about Ryan you have thus brought more Ryan to the site. Congratulations.

That and "I hate ______________" threads.

#44 Posted by SmilingPig (1337 posts) -

Right now I am just thankful that they can do quicklooks at all. It’s a rough time for GB it seems.

#45 Posted by fox01313 (5069 posts) -

Well the last couple of weeks around E3 had a lot of people going off to do other things so they couldn't be around to do some of the quick looks, it seems things are returning to normal.

#46 Edited by Cloneslayer (1626 posts) -

wait... Ryan? I thought everyone hated Patrick?

and even thats crazy!

At least this one isn't just a bitchfest about Patrick though.

#49 Posted by Hunter5024 (5598 posts) -

Ryan's one of my favorite quick lookers, but I can see what you mean about spreading the love around. I also like it when they get more than 2 guys doing it together.

#50 Posted by The_Tolman (430 posts) -

I love every single person involved with Giantbomb. Any quick look is a good one for me.
