Who's gonna play it on the Bomb Crew

#1 Posted by Krockett (509 posts) -

Who on the Giant Bomb crew do you thing will actually play it and better yet actually beat it...

Im going to say maybe Brad, Patrick, and the Vinster!

Now the big question is who's going to review it...or will it even be reviewed :(

#2 Edited by Snail (8770 posts) -

I think Brad and Vinny are very likely to play this. Oh and Alex too, since this is Studio Ghibli (I think he really likes their movies doesn't he?).

#3 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2037 posts) -

Jeff seemed at least mildly excited about it on his tumblr. I imagine Alex will review it, if it gets one at all.

If it's anything like the rest of their post-Final Fantasy XIII JRPG coverage, the game will receive a Quick Look, maybe some discussion on a Bombcast, and then never be mentioned again.

@SirOptimusPrime: Yeah I forgot that one of Jeff's favorite games is Persona 4, I dont know why I get it in my head that he isnt into JRPG's.

also whats the link to his tumblr would like to check it out!

He's a creative mastermind. Also I don't think he likes JRPG's, but he really likes P4.

Chief Anime Editor Brad Shoemaker will have to play it.

Indeed. I'll be playing it, though...

So how was the reception to the community GOTY podcast? Maybe we should resurrect the community podcast. It doesn't need to be a weekly thing, Giantbomb's already got that covered, but more of a spoiler cast that gets recorded after major games come out.

Brad since he's the anime editor and no it won't be reviewed.

I'd say that's the treatment may games get anyway, but not being the type of person who listens to the Bombcast regularly, I only have half the information necessary to make that statement.

I'm gonna guess Brad. I remember him sounding really excited about it in a video a while ago

Makes sense since it sounded like Brad will be trying to get through Dead Space 3 in about 2-3 weeks.

#16 Edited by Krockett (509 posts) -

Well regardless,Im pretty excited for it! First time I've been excited for a JRPG in some time. Don't have a reason in particular but, I made it a point to pre-order the strategy guide and game on Amazon to get the two additional familiars!

I dont know why!

Aren't there like multiple community podcasts out there?

Are there? I dunno. There's one about Guild Wars or something, I think. Link me to 'em, I'm interested.

@TooWalrus: I wouldn't know where to look I only remember seeing people randomly say they put out their own podcast made up of certain users.

You'd think they'd be posting in the forums when new episodes go up, eh? I'm on here quite a bit and don't remember seeing them since... well, Kessler's.

@TooWalrus: You're probably right, when I say remember I'm most likely thinking of stuff from a long time ago.

#23 Posted by Slax (1006 posts) -

I just hope there is a quick look soon. This seems really interesting, but I don't know a lot about it.

#24 Posted by Krockett (509 posts) -

I just got done with the Demo and thought it seems rather simple but, fun/Interesting! What I hear from other reviews it seems is that it gets more intricate and challenging after the first few hours!

#25 Edited by me3639 (1991 posts) -

I suspected PK, but surprising to hear maybe Jeff, Alex or Brad.

#26 Posted by Raven10 (2050 posts) -

I would assume Brad would be the one to review it if it got reviewed. Vinny might play it. Patrick might try it. Don't think Jeff, Ryan, or Alex would be interested although as a film buff I'm sure Alex loves Studio Ghibli so he might play it for that reason alone.

#27 Posted by MiniPato (2807 posts) -

I get the feeling that Patrick will be playing it?

#28 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2353 posts) -

I'm going to say Alex because Brad might be preoccupied with Dead Space 3 and Jeff might not care enough to devote 40 hours for the game (judging by IGN's count).

#29 Posted by Dizzyhippos (2086 posts) -

Brad's reviewing it jeff got a spare copy and was apparently going to try it out

#30 Edited by Venatio (4654 posts) -

No review and a 30 minute QL with Ryan and Patrick, calling it, anyone wanna take that bet?
 
EDIT: After reading the thread I might be wrong, Pat and Brad QL then

#31 Posted by dropabombonit (1541 posts) -

Chief anime editor Brad will be looking at it, in his job description

#32 Posted by Picard (260 posts) -

Who cares? - It's not like they'll be reviewing it.

I'll have my copy tomorrow - I can't wait! I've been looking forward to this game for months.

#33 Posted by GnsDemon (126 posts) -

Patrick me thinks. Brad will hopefully finish it. And Vinny won't.
