Huh, after reading this post I guess I'm in the minority as "mr. positive", because I've liked Patrick since the first introduction, and think he adds a valuable resource to the site productively and creatively. Don't agree with him being longwinded or "stating the obvious" like has been mentioned, I generally think he's a good addition to the podcast with interesting stuff to say, though I can see him taking up a little bit too much space with the amount of stuff he has to say sometimes.
By all means, I'm not opposed to having a discussion like this though, if the GB crew reads it I guess there's stuff they can take from it and try to improve. I just want to make it clear that I'm really enjoying this site and the content they create now as much as ever, and if they improve on the stuff you guys feel is currently lacking, that will just be for the better for the all of us.
Can't wait to see the next generation of consoles and games covered by Jeff and the rest of the GB crew! :)
