Leigh knows her stuff; I'm enjoying listening to her opinions (15 minutes in)

Posted by supercubedude

Leigh is talking over everyone. Even if she has something interesting to say, JESUS FUCKING CHRIST let others get their thoughts out too.

Posted by Brendan

I agree that Leigh Alexander is a control talker, but it's pretty obvious that most got super offended when she made fun of nerds and started flaming her directly after.  Funny shit.

That chick should have stayed in the bathroom...

Leah's conclusion about PS3 positioning better than the 360 fails for the simple fact that it's price point is much higher. NPD numbers speak for themselves.

@Nasar7: The Bombcast is already the best videogame podcast. It doesn't "need" anything. It's been Jeff and Ryan's mission statement from the beginning to have a game site with a light perspective (the RIGHT perspective) on the industry. Gamasutra is pretty much the antithesis of that mission statement and this editor in particular is Giant Bomb antimatter.

She would fit much better with 1Up's horrible, long-winded, snarky, quasi-intellectual, "talk about crap no one cares about for an hour as if it's life or death" podcast.

This podcast ties with the PAX one in terms of incoherency and chaos. They talk for more than 5 minutes straight about boning.

Also, Leigh Alexander really annoys me. She reminds me of all those weird girls at my school who are way into anime and are usually seen in a dark corner with the rest of their Japanophile friends drawing hentai.

Yeah, she seems to think that talking at ridiculous speeds means she gets to be the only one talking.

@Brendan: I think it was more that she's continued to monopolise the conversation for at least an hour. A lot of the stuff she says is very interesting, but she's not really given anyone else a chance because everytime somebody else says something she likes to butt in again. I think she's spot-on on a lot things, but she really wants to control the conversation.

Less Leigh please. Ever. God I'm halfway through, just got past the "objectively sexy." Yes, you do overuse the word objective. Makes me question if you understand what "objective journalism" means. I don't know if I'll make it to the end of this.

Haha wow, such uproar!

Posted by robio

Leigh Alexander does not need to breathe, she fakes it so people think she's human so they invite her on podcasts, than she reveals her true self and rapes your ears with an unending string of wack ass punditry.  Kill it with silver Jeff, kill it with silver.

She is far too ugly to be that annoying and judgmental.  She spouts unfounded information about everything and crap about things she thinks she is somehow an expert on with no facts to follow up.

When did this become the Leigh Alexander show?  Start your own damn show if you want to talk for two hours straight.

Worst cast yet, please never have that shrew on gain.

I really doubt that. She's in the business of knowing facts; she's basically an industry analyst.

Now she goes off on a 5 minute rant about the home-space yadayada blarghwarblgarble as a reply to buzz on home. STFU . Say something about buzz or GTFO

I don't care about your deep analysis filled with technobabble. BUZZ, HOME, TO THE POINT
PLEASE SHOOT HER

edit: i'm trying to tune her out but her voice drills right into my skull

Ryan need to say "are you out of your fucking mind" a hell of a lot more on the podcast.

Posted by SunKing

lol, "... objectively sexy! Are you fucking out of your mind?!" Ryan on Leigh's comments on the Nazi uniforms.

Edited by Phished0ne

I wouldn't mind Leigh if someone could put a cork in her mouth every once and a while...


I am extremely excited to hear from Vellyvision though, YOU DONT KNOW JACK on all consoles would be badass. I loved playing all those games, i still swing by the website and play the flash ones they were doing. 
Posted by Cammy

Thankfully i'm not the only who thinks shes just the most annoying person on the cast, I mean lets just straight out bag everyone with no facts what so ever!

At one point I didn't even think it was the Bombcast, hell how much did Brad even speak?


Posted by DukeTogo

Wow, stupid comments from a stupid girl that thinks she's smart.  Lets talk about the sexiness of Nazis.

Posted by Jothel

oh man does Leigh talk through all 2 hours of this or do the guests leave at one point to leave the core people?

Posted by WholeFunShow

BAD PEOPLE!!! Shame on you all. I'm laughing so hard at all this. Leigh's awesome, don't let her leave.

Posted by Delta_Ass

Good God, now I remember why I hate anime fans.

Posted by dannyodwyer

Gamasutra lady needs to stop butting in with her craaaazy concepts. She was pretty on the money about the future of the consoles, but maaann she wouldnt stop butting in & giving sh** to the Capcom guys.

Solid cast though.

Posted by Hairydutchman

The bombcasts are better of without guests.

Edited by Venatio

I just cant finish listening to the podcast, she never stops talking, I thought she would be a great guest but she is messing up the whole podcast

Just to be clear, I didnt like her because she talked way too much, it had nothing at all to do with her being a woman

This was a bad Bombcast

Posted by Jeffsekai

Oh my god I'm sorry but that girl needs to shut the fuck up. I'm 37 mins in and all she has done is cut people off and complain and she fucking loud. God Dammit :(

Posted by EtherealSlayer

Leigh was really, really annoying with her Eastern BS until she started talking about virtual worlds.  That was an interesting discussion.

Posted by SmokePants

Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad, we're probably not winning you guys over by insulting your friend, but you have to OBJECTIVELY know she is simply a bad fit for your podcast. I put it to you to avoid hurting any feelings while maintaining the fantastic chemistry and light-hearted humor that your podcast is known for.

Posted by Nasar7

I agree with you Leigh, their uniforms were very sharp. Fun fact: They were designed by Hugo Boss!

Posted by SunKing

I know what she means about the uniforms but it's just the randomness of the topic and way Ryan reacted to the term "objectively sexy".

Edited by robio

Leigh Alexander is fucking out of her mind.  Why the fuck did she just admit she finds Nazis sexy, I mean even if you do, you should probably keep that shit bottled up.  It was weird because she tried to use the word "objectively" to distance herself from her comment, but than immediately admitted she didn't know what objectivity is.  This is close enough to the Godwin principle for me.

She's an analyst according to herself.  She's a bitch with a blog, that's all she is.  You can say you're an expert on anything when you don't have to back anything up with facts or credentials.

Woah, what the heck happened?! Can't wait to listen to this tonight. lol!

Posted by Jothel

oh man the Swedish Grin Olf guy just left after having said like 12 words, i really enjoyed him on the other casts, sucks he left early, Leigh seems to be a female version of Michael McIntyre.....

Posted by Jeffsekai

Does she stop talking? so I can skip all this crap her voice is hurting my ears

Posted by Delta_Ass
@Jeffsekai:

She goes to the bathroom for a while so yes, she stops fucking talking.
Posted by Artemis_D

It seems like all you people do around here is complain about stuff.  I'm really not sure why any of you are here anymore.  She was no more annoying than quite a few of you are around here on a DAILY basis.

Lock her in?
Posted by SunKing
@DukeTogo: She's the news director for Gamasutra; she's not just "a bitch with a blog". Technically, that would make me just as qualified in my own opinions from having my own blog. It would also be akin to saying that those Giant Bomb guys don't know anything; they're just a bunch of guys with a website.
Posted by Metal_Mills

Leigh blabs on way too much and gets annoying. Shes goes on and on and when someone else comes in she yells over them.

Also, wheres Vinny?

Posted by DukeTogo

"Like Bionic Commando, but good".

Sad but true.
