4A Games makes impressive strides in improving Metro's core gameplay without losing the pieces that made the original so special.
Blood Dragon has a terrific sense of style and gives you some good extra Far Cry 3-style gameplay to fool around with.
Set phasers to "shun."
We're not gonna lie: guests from Capcom, GRIN, Gamasutra, and Jellyvision make this hands-down the craziest Bombcast ever.
I signed up just to say that woman was EXTREMELY annoying.
Yeah this one was....not so good.
From the not many podcasts I've heard, I'm just going to say that I don't like it as much when there's a lot of people.HOWEVER, I will say I loved the points Leigh brought up about A) Mass Effect being nerds' idea of what is "cool" and how it's kind of sad that it's been hailed as a game with a great story when there's things like the boning scenes that really do ruin the whole thing, and B) that Snow Crash is horrible shit that people need to stop talking about.
I didn't get to listen to it until now, and I'm certainly just piling on here, but yes -- she is obnoxious. Maybe she had something to drink, I have no idea. She made some good points but I was also amazed by the unabashed Kojima/Japan love.
does she run on Engergiser batteries? she is like the duersel bunny.. goes on and on and on. Leigh should go on gamespot, their sponsored by them.. how annoying. She is so full of herself and should stop and listen to others for once. Ego does not take you far. Why would anyone want her around any more considering she just about insulted everyone in the world? If she didn't like the 'geek' side of gaming then why come onto a serious gaming site? go to family nintendo.com. Everyone is intitled to their own opinion but please listen to others.
I love when you have guests. It's like adding something new to a classic.But NEVER have Leigh on the show again. Holy moley.
Funny podcast. I love it when people make an ass out of them selves when they drink. I am not alone.
I'm sorry, but that girl's voice is way to loud and way to annoying!
" I feel like the people commenting here have never gotten drunk or saw a friend get drunk and talk forever. Grow up. She's just a person and had a lot of great points. This is why Giant Bomb is so great. It's not corporate, it's just people who like video games talking about video games. Leigh was a great guest and hopefully we hear more from her. "
the capcom guys voice is soooo annoying, and everything he says is annoying, hope he stepped in front of a bus
Leigh was fine
Leigh was interesting and would be fine if someone just passed her blunt rather than the caffeine before the show. As for the sexy Naxi uniforms comment, come one, everyone knows that is true. As someone mentioned earlier their uniforms were designed by professional designers. Why is that even a debate point. Looking good doesn't make something good.
Shes fine, but she really doesent fit with the bombcast style. She wants to talk philosophy and system wars while the bombcast is about rap, energy drinks and cool games.I think she could be fine when talking with someone like Paul Barnett. She really likes talking tho.
SOME ONE HAS TO SHUT THAT BITCH UP!!!!!!!
oh my god...shut her up! She couldn't go 5 seconds without opening her mouth. The moment anyone else started talking it seemed like she insisted on bringing the attention right back to her...please, never bring her back on :(EDIT: had to turn it off at the 1 hour mark. I don't know how she got work in the industry, I didn't hear a single sensible comment in the hour I actually listened to. Half of her arguments conflicted with previous arguments she made earlier in the show. >.<
BEST BOMBCAST EVER!
Leigh Alexander, owner of the worst manners ever displayed in podcast history:
Awesome bombcast, but damn that lady talked NON STOP.
Leigh Alexander is fucking awful, does she ever shut up? or allow anyone else to have an opinion?Props to the guys for not telling her to shut the fuck up about 30 mins in
damn that girl loves to talk
I am surprised anyone of you thought Leigh was good on this show. She ruined it. I couldn't listen to it all. I had to stop half-way in. It was just too much cross-talk and interrupting. I didn't agree with all her opinions, but I would have listened to them if she hadn't tried to talk over people so much. She just kept trying to talk louder than anyone else talking. It made it unlistenable.
This was the only bombcast I have ever intentionally stopped listening to and said "well, that's enough of that!" Uhg!
Can I punch Craig in the face? That guy is fucking annoying.I actually liked Leigh. Weird.
I liked this podcast, some of it was funny and it was crazy, but this girl was pretty opinionated.Her negativity towards people probably stems from her younger experiances in elementary/highschool where she mentioned she was a video game and anime nerd. She obviously still carries a lot of resentment with her.
wow that chick was annoying! please don't ever have her on the bombcast again!
Leigh was great to listen to. I'm surprised how many people here didn't like to hear the smart points she offered. I liked what she had to say about MGS, but she also had lottsa other great points; like when she talked about the dangers of the gaming industry moving away from its faithful hardcore in the time of a recession. Hardcore gamers will continue to play in the time of a recession; casual gamers won't. Good point.
I'm sorry, but the majority of you can't help but get in a nice line to give blow jobs to Jeff and sock puppet Ryan. You bring outside voices in, you get a different product than the usual Jeff witticisms (which usually work), Ryan's unwarranted egotism and completely backhanded attitude towards the user base, Brad's inability to come off as anything more than a latte drinking hippie with a Jap fixation, and Vinny's underscored hilarity. And there was jack shit of Vinny, and on this crew he's the second best voice on there.Now I'm sorry if you would love to have the same old stamped out usual shit, but sometimes a change of pace is good. Then again most of the user base comes off as unwashed tools who think CoD4 is landmark and that BROSIVE video games made by Epic are the shit. I rather hear random fireside chatter about game development theory. So Leigh, while I do not necessarily agree with every single observation she made on this podcast, more than did herself well with a group of people who really bring jack shit to the table. But I don't expect myopians to get it. And a majority of you did not fail to disappoint. Go worship again at the alter.

Leigh Alexander has to be the most annoying person on the planet. Instead of waiting for someone else to finish talking she just shouts over them. She did NOT stop talking either. Jesus.....
Haha, this podcast was a weird experience; by after about an hour, I hated Leigh, but then I realized that she's doing a different style of podcasting: I usually listen to the bombcast while I do other stuff, or doze off, so it's good for some funny entertainment while I go concentrate on something else. Leigh makes a lot of sense, but you have to really pay a lot of attention or else it just sounds grating. That said, she could get a little obnoxious at times, but not nearly as bad once I switched my mindset.
She does talk a bit overmuch, but what bugs me WAY more is her incessant Eastern Game fangirlishness. No, RE was NOT better when the characters controlled like tanks. She strikes me as the kind of person who, when she was younger, sat in the manga section of her local comic store reading, but never buying, and then complaining about the lack of quality products. I think it's funny to see how much abject misogyny ALWAYS comes out whenever a woman "dares" to tread in gaming.Don't get me wrong, she does grate on the nerves eventually, but I think it's because she's aggravating personality, not "a chick."Edit: It's sad because she often DOES make some interesting points, I just wish she'd let other people comment on those points instead of moving onto her next point immediately.
Oh man... first Bombcast I couldn't listen trough - no offense to the girl, but try to breath and let other people speak...
"She goes out at 105minute so feel free to skip to there. "
The podcast was one of the best I've listened to. Hearing a fresh perspective on games is always interesting.Also, I doubt most of the people in here could hold such an interesting conversation or be half as intelligent as Alexander when drunk and tired.
God. Damn. This is the worst podcast ever, and I like the show. It's not because of Leighs opinions or such, but man, a podcast doesn't work when people talk over eachother all the frickin' timeeeee. That makes bad bad bad radio. Geez, it's crazy.Podcasts and radio work when people get to speak in order, so people can voice their opinions, calmly without shouting and without driving screws through your ears. This was just horrible. Please EDUCATE your guests before bringing them on. Put up a rule, god, something. The end was good, when stuff calmed down and it became listenable.
Well, that's one heck of a retarded diatribe you've put together there, buddy. "
Yea, all those mouth-breathing retards who play... hey, wait a sec... I don't think that's how educated people spell "altar." "
Hi,Long-time listener, first time poster.Seriously, I don't give a monkey's about Leigh's opinions on army uniforms, Nazi or otherwise. Neither can she necessarily do anything about that whiny voice of hers . But what I can't forgive is the constant talking/shouting over other people, and trying to end their sentences for them (and usually getting it wrong.) Having an opinion is one thing, forcing it down other people's throats is another.I understand you were being polite and accommodating to your guest but please Bombcast, never again.TT.
I'm listening to it again just because I hate myself. It's kinda funny the second time around. It's like a really gory video, the first time you wince, but you can't help but watch it again. Or it's like a lemonhead. It makes your whole face pucker, but you want more.EDIT: OH GOD HER VOICE
Im sorry but that lady really bothered me. She constantly talked over people and yelled her opinion. Also she spent 60 bucks on a facebook app.
Too bad Leigh isn't a character in Happy Tree Friends.
I just got back from a business trip and am listening to this episode now. I don't know what the hell everyone is talking about - this episode is so entertaining. the hatred for this episode is unjust. it's like the hatred for Keys to the VIP - the hatred for that show is also confusing.
I don't know, I found this episode hilarious."Well, Jeff is hyped up on estrogen." Golden.
