E3 is about a week away and one of my favorite parts of the Giant Bomb E3 coverage is the drunken, late night bombcast spectaculars.

(Taken from http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/u8uwz/i_am_geoff_keighley_from_spike_tvgttv_amaa_about/)

Image is me asking Geoff Keighley if he would have any interest in being on a E3 bombcast. Of course he wants to. I mean, who wouldn't?

I think it would be interesting to have Geoff Keighley, especially to talk about the 'science' of covering games - with Geoff doing the "final hours of", and maybe a discussion of the values of exclusive scoops.

Of course there are loads of dudes who I want to make a return (See: http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion/30/giant-bomb-golden-duder-world-championship/545303/#166)

So, duders, who would YOU like to be guests on the bombcasts? Do you prefer mainly developers / PR or other game journalists?

I doubt she will, Ryan said she wont, and I doubt Ryan has a reason to lie about it.

Rich Gallup motherfuckers!!!

McElroy's would be awesome as usual and throw in David Jaffe for 4 hours of hilarity. Can't wait for the E3 podcasts, my wife is gonna hate me for a week because of them.

#12 Posted by JasonR86 (9763 posts) -

I think it would be cool to see some of the gameinformer guys on there. They had Dan Ryckert last year. Jeff has mentioned that in the early days of E3 he would spend time with some of the older gameinformer staff like Andrew Reiner and Andy McNamara. I think they would be a good fit on a bombcast.

I wonder if Molyneux knows about "his balls". His thoughts on the MolyJam would be interesting though. I'm sure they're already out there though.

unrealistic, Jack tretton. Realistic(ish), Cliff Blezinsky (I think it would be fun if anything)

It doesn't matter, they'll all just talk over each other anyways.

Peter Molyneux is keenly aware of his balls.

I want Leah, but only if Jaffe is there to rip her a new one.

#19 Posted by Deadmanforking (579 posts) -

I'd like a podcast that didn't have 50 people talking over each other.

#20 Edited by Master_Funk (740 posts) -

Definitely prefer other journalists to game developers since they can be completely candid with what they say (though there are exceptions like David Jaffe).

Bring back Justin Mcelroy, who is the funniest game journalist outside of the bomb.

There's not a ton of videos of it (that I can find), but Leigh was basically being loud and was drunk.

It got real old, real fast.

#25 Posted by Sbaitso (558 posts) -

@ThePickle: Yes. Make it so. Basically a "best of" of old E3 guests.

#26 Posted by Sbaitso (558 posts) -

@The_Nubster: I think it was her insistence on interruption and not wanting to move on to a new topic, choosing to simply drive the same one into the ground as hard as possible, until another opinion popped into her drunk mind and she decided to drive that one into the ground too.

Agreed, I think Sessler would be awesome to have on an e3 show. Jenova Chen is a good choices as well and Jaffe will always speak his mind. If anyone from the 8-4 was coming back to America for e3 they would be welcome as well.

But my own pick would be to see if they could get Scott Sharkey. He would be a fresh voice and nice point of view. http://gamevideos.1up.com/video/id/26778

This. 
 
The event podcasts always suck if you're not drinking and chatting live while watching. All the guests are better when they're in the studio and there isn't a dozen of them, with the exception of Johnny V making an ass of himself. The event podcasts are good for nabbing guests they can't normally get in house, such as indie developers and folks on the east coast.

After the events at 38 Studios, you have to have Gallop on there to talk about it.

@Anwar: E3 podcasts tend to be very little about E3.

#46 Posted by Zor (664 posts) -

Huh, i can't really think of anyone (other than the bombcast)... for the most part, designers/producers are kind of boring since all they do is promote their stuff, and have no ideas about other games. The best conversations are when the guest talk about games that they didn't make (but not in a glowing generic way of saying nice things, by not saying much at all).

So pretty much, i want conversation/arguments about game design/concepts/purpose, and not people saying, "that game look great, but i didn't get much time with it. Oh, i haven't play that game, my backlog of games is fairly large. etc..."

Any excuse to repost this, I will. Molyneux would also be very entertaining to have on the cast.
