Giatbomb's Jeff Gerstmann on TWiT Today

#1 Edited by zonerover (584 posts) -
Edit: Now that the show is long over, here's the YouTube version of the entire show. You can also get the feeds to subscribe to the audio or video version on the second post of this thread.
 
 
 

I have a tendency to ramble on so I am going to get straight to the point. I've really enjoyed Giant Bomb over the past few years. I've also enjoyed TWiT when I discovered them a few years ago as well. While they have two completely different styles, at their cores, they share the common similarity of having people who are extremely pasionate about what they do - technology with TWiT and video games with Giant Bomb. Well beyond my wildest comprehension, these two things seem to be coming together. Evidence from Leo and Jeff's tweets.
  
Leo: "@giatbomb - Hey Jeff Gerstmann - let's get you on TWiT today. Are you still in Petaluma? DM me"
Jeff: "@leolaporte Hey Leo, yeah, I'm in Petaluma, would love to come through and chat. DM me the details (or follow me and I'll DM you my cell)."
Jeff: "Heading across town to get my TWiT on. I will be sure to properly represent the east side of Petaluma to the _fullest._ http://live.twit.tv/" 
 
Plus Veronica Belmont's tweet:
"Going to be on This Week in Tech with @LeoLaporte @jeffcannata and @jeffgerstmann pretty soon! Talking games, of course. http://live.twit.tv "
 
I was hoping giatbomb was Giant Bomb and it seems like it is. So it appears the people of TWiT, Core, The Totally Rad Show and Giant Bomb are coming together. Go Jeff! Represent the video games!

I think it's in 15 min.

#4 Edited by zonerover (584 posts) -

TWiT starts a little past the hour, so yes, I think its in 10 minutes now.
 
And BTW, have no idea how Jeff found out about Leo's message after sending it to @giatbomb. I reserved @giatbomb in case anyone from Giant Bomb wants it. I doubt they will, but people should always reserve misspellings of your website in case impostors/pranksters are lurking.
 
Edit: I saw that he made the @giatbomb mistake, didn't delete it, and then posted another tweet with @giantbomb. Guess once you have +100,000 followers, you probably have to give up on the possibility of deleting messages since they would have circulated far and wide by the time you try to fix your mistake.

#8 Posted by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

Pretty bored, this is just what I was looking for thanks dude.

Jeff's voice is so much deeper 
 
damn that girl is pretty cute
#10 Posted by zonerover (584 posts) -

The deepness of Jeff Gerstmann's Voice stands out against the 'squeekiness' of Veronica's voice, although Jeff Cannata rivals Gerstmann in that department.

They post these live shows as podcasts, right?  I got to go somewhere right now, but these clash of awesome personalities has me staying put at my desk.

It's an audio podcast which also has a video version. Edited stuff on TWiT.TV and live stuff on LIVE.TWiT.TV

Wow, this woman really is quite something looks wise (sorry to be perving a bit :/ ) 
Glad she's not yelling her point across and giving some good insight and (gasp) letting people speak :O 
Edit: she also has a smile that would melt the coldest of hearts :)

I'll also add to the record that she's also very intellegent. You can find more of her weekly on Tekzilla.

Why the fuck are you guys even mentioning Leigh Alexander?  It's really freaking stupid.

I'm not sure Sony will be happy with Veronica Belmont being excited about the 3DS.

This is old. Can we please leave this thread to the show. There is that thread if you want to rant on about that.

She hosts Core on PSN.

She is well known as being able to have an independent voice. She thought Left for Dead was cool, and I am happy she doesn't have be a female Kevin Butler.

GB stalker alert - secret location [sic] of the new GB offices given away in the pre-show :D

She works on Qore.
 
I like this kind of set up for a live podcast/discussion. Would be awesome to see Giantbomb doing a similar show, separate from the Bombcast, with industry professionals and other journalists.
#40 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

Especially since Kevin Butler is...you know...fake >_>

Leo and our Jeff together! Two of my heroes!

#43 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19304 posts) -

Whoever the host is, he has a freakishly great radio voice!  I've never heard of Twit before, but it seems really interesting.

Hope GB never does this in the long run haha wow.

You're right. I was never trying to argue that Veronica is fake

Since he made it public, either he didn't know that everything went live, they have given up trying to keep that stuff private, or they'll be public offices?
 
Plus there was a Gizmodo joke referencing to Jeff's stolen poncho. Homing beacon's probably still on.

@FluxWaveZ: Seriously! something had to be said about how soothing his voice is!
