Dan is a wonderful addition to the podcast. I would've loved to hear Ryan's reactions to the unbelievable shit that comes out of this man's glorious mouth.

Also: @johntdrake, you make me a happy individual.

Interesting.

For my choice of documentaries, I'd go for:

  • Last Guardian
  • Deadly Premonition
  • Resident Evil 4

Mainly I want to know how does the internal team handles multiple restart, changes in direction, and just plain weirdness.

That was my question I sent in to them. When he said "he then goes on to name a couple other games in that vain..." referring to Ocarina of Time, I also named Resident Evil 4 and Metroid Prime. It would be really cool to see how they all have to completely reinvent the games and tackle all the issues that come with going from 2D to 3D worlds, combat, and all that good stuff. I was really glad to hear my question asked and to hear all their good answers. Makes me sad though that there aren't more documentaries following the making of all these great games that come out.

This was an absolutely hilarious Bombcast. Drake and Dan were on fire, and Brad and Drew held it down as always. The last five minutes, after the music, had me rolling around.

The seedbank you were talking about is on a norwegian island called "Svalbard"

Finally got through this podcast and god damn it Dan please write an auto biography or maybe your philosophy of life.

Edited by ki11tank

holy fucking shit team @johntdrake all the way! i echo pretty much everything he said on this cast. man i wish GB had the funds to hire him, i assume that's the reason as he's kind of a suit. god damn hilarious and witty as hell. kinda fills the ryan and vinny void :(

Edited by KaneRobot

I know there are a few people that do animations of clips from the podcast, so PLEASE someone who pumps those out do a cartoon version of Dan's post-credits apocalypse story. Rigoddamndiculous.

Now that I've finished the episode, I'll reiterate my fantasy that Drake is at least a semi-regular on the show from here on out. He is an incredibly perfect balance to Dan's...stuff.

What's the email address BRAD!?

Anyway, is there always gonna be a secret Dan story at the end of every podcast now?!?!

@johntdrake: I think most people understood that it was a joke, no worries dude! For the record, it seems like most people thought it was a great episode!

Great? It was probably the best episode of the entire year. I normally love some T-Drake action on my Bombcast but together combined with Dan's incredible stories I listened to it twice - something I pretty much never do. Not to mention that the first time around I tuned out when the credits music came about so imagine my surprise and glee to find out there was an entire extra Dan story after the credits? And man.. WHAT a story.

Stop harping so much on Dan you guys.

Posted by TessaWracked

Nice bombcast guys! Dan you are a super cool and nice guy, and I hope you know that we love your stories. I don't wanna see people making too much fun at your expense :)

So, anyone else not able to download this episode with their podcast manager? Beyondpod says that it's 11kb, whereas every other Bombcast ever has been around 89mb. Tech issues still persisting?

Posted by Luxus

Man, the last two bombcasts have been so funny. Keep it up! Loved the Drake/Ryckert combo

Posted by CornBREDX

I really like this new, middle aged, Brad.

So much different than the Brad that was falling asleep all the time, disinterested in stuff, and leaving early.

How times change- in a good way.

I HAVE NEVER ASKED YOU FOR ANYTHING INTERNET, BUT I IMPLORE YOU. LET'S MAKE THE DAN RYCKERT VERSUS JOSE CANSECO HOME RUN DERBY/ARM WRESTLING THROWDOWN HAPPEN. WE CAN DO IT!

Posted by huser

Dan is growing on me, (not that this matters all that much) but I think Drake nails it on the head in regards to his bold declarative statements with no room for diplomatic couching. I'd say that's half the reason for the vitriol that comes in the emailbag. At least in recent days Dan's run afoul of Jeff leading to comedy.

Posted by LazyEkans

Can Dan just keep topping himself every week?!

Great Bombcast! Thx Brad!

John Drake is so full of energy and positivity it is both infectious and exhausting. :D

Matt Kessler is the Littlefinger of the video game industry.

I always saw Joel from the last of us as Josh Brolin. So thank you Dan! Finally I agree with you.

Dan you are out of your tree about Taco Bell. It's barely even food much less the best thing you've ever eaten.This is irrefutable fact with no room for opinion.

Edited by xite

Dwayne "Turok" Johnson is one of the funniest things Brad has said in a while.

Edited by LegendaryChopChop

You know, I really like John Drake, but the whole Sony shill aspect rubbed me the wrong way. I know a lot of it was in jest but still, some of that "Sony is awesome!!!" stuff was a little jarring.

I'm also not a big fan of the Bradcasts but I love the hour email bits. Easily the best part of the Bombcast these days.

Yup. This bombcast was a delight to listen to. Now if only they could get John Drake and Matt Kessler on at the same time. Hopefully with Jeff present.

Josh Brolin as Joel? Ehhhhh. I'm not so sure.

But.. Hugh Jackman would be perfect. How do I know this? Because he has played the part once already! In Prisoners, just take a look at these:

His role is basically a long audition for TLoU.

Posted by BenderUnit22

Dan's need to call everyone an idiot or dork is getting mildly irritating. Good show though, especially the surprise ending after the credits.

I'm not sure I could manage that combination! Overstimulation, you know! O:

Brad is cool.

Posted by Ares42

This episode.... I don't even know where to start, so just gonna leave it alone.

Although I have to say I genuinely felt sorry for Dan with the glasses story. There was something in his voice there that really grabbed me. Also, sort of a dick move to bring it up if you already knew the story ?

What's up everybody? Is there a way to get this comment input box to the top of the comments section?
