The science bits are the best fucking conversations on the bombcast! Vinny's scientific curiosity is amazing.

This is... Bombcast. Right?

Anime Dark Souls is for jerks.

Welp, looks like Vinny paid the most attention in high school. My rage was slightly quelled when he mentioned van der Waals' forces over the cacophony of almost right (surface tension) and completely wrong (water repels water) ideas.

That may be my favorite image they've used for the bombcast in a long time. It makes me think of the guys dressed up and cosplaying as various characters from Bleach.

Which Bleach character do you think best fits each of them?

Vinny - Tessai Tsukabishi

Tessai Tsukabishi

Drew - Kisuke Urahara

Kisuke Urahara

Patrick - Love Aikawa

I don't know anything about Bleach, but that fighting game by Treasure is kinda great.

This image can only mean great things.

Anyone who skips the ads in favour of the premium podcast hates fun. I said it.

The DS Bleach fighting games were pretty solid. Too bad just about every other game with the license (with the exception of the SRPG) is complete ass.

There's a comic book where they use feng shui and meditation to time travel.

Can someone timestamp any talk of Demons/Dark Souls, DOTA, League, anime, Drew's type-A hipster self betterment lifestyle activities, Vinny's parenting, Brad's e-sports news and Jeff's complaints about some weekend console update tedium so I can skip them?

Edited by TheManWithNoPlan

Dark Souls? Oh yeah, that hot new release Dark Souls. I can't wait to listen!

Edit: Love me some Giant Sciencecast!

I know things are slow right now in the industry but I'm getting really sick of the pop/pseudo science talk.

Listen to the first 5 minutes and then turn it off.

You can tell a game is good if Jeff doesn't like it.

I think this is like the fourth time Jeff has mentioned how you can kill your party in Maniac Mansion on the podcast.

Water does want to stick together, its called hydrogen bonding.

This podcast reminded me I have a Vectrex with like 20 games and the dumb screen covers that came with them out in my garage.

Hell yeah that Bleach game kicks ass.

This. Treasure's Bleach games are very readily enjoyable with or without an appreciation for the source material. Just damn solid fighters all around. I'll choose to interpret the use of that box art as a sign that it was high time the masses be reminded of their magnificence.

Yup. It's too bad they didn't make any more in the series after 2nd and it turned into some kind of...weird strategy thing, I think?

Kinda bums me out to hear Brad mention that he couldn't get them to record the Strider video because they deemed it too short to bother. Most of us are clawing at any content that might appear on the site as long as the guys are in it - it can be 5 min long whatever guys, no one really expects professional video editing.

Which Bleach character do you think best fits each of them?

Jeff = Kenpachi (Kenpachi pretty much fight the same way Jeff play's video games)

Drew = Ichigo (The strong silent type)

Brad = Ishida (Very clever, but refuse to back down on his ideals to a fault)

Patrick = Shunsui (Ladies man)

Vinny = Ukitake (everybody loves him, but he has a tendency to get ill)

Alex = Ganju Shiba (I love you Alex, but yeah..)

Ryan = Aizen (Master of trolling)

Brad's understanding of attraction between water molecules is completely backwards there. I'm surprised given how interested you guys seem on the topic that you've never fallen into the YouTube hole of NASA videos and Chris Hadfield answering questions and showing off weird low-gravity space station stuff. It's a great time.

EDIT: Man, the Bombcast is always funny but this week has had me uncontrollably laughing out loud on several occasions, and I'm only halfway through. Really great stuff.

If you don't want any of that you should probably not listen to it at all.
