She just wont shut up. At least after listening to this, she realized her mistake. Hopefully she stops being so abnoxious and defensive on every topic

" The problem is that she was preaching "objectivity" and being completely  bias. Lets not mention she was BASHING Capcom products on the Giantbomb's podcast directly to Kraig Kujaw, the  Director of Design at Capcom US, thats just bad form.  The bitch was being totally rude.  Having people pull that shit on your podcast is not good for Giantbomb. "
Fuckin' A.

She needs to shut the fuck up and let other people talk once in a while. I'd never heard of her before the podcast, and frankly, would never want to hear of her again.

People who are blaming it on a drunken stupor have to realize the other guys were almost positively drinking as well and were able to control it. She either knew she was going to be like that after drinking and ignored it, or is just a really fucking annoying person.

It's nice to have guest on the podcast and get their opinions on things, but I agree with some people she is annoying.  hell even she thought she was annoying on her own blog, and she apologized to the giantbomb crew.

Damnit guys!!!!! BOMBCAST IS LIKE SETTING SAIL ON A NAUTICAL VOYAGE.......DON'T BRING WOMEN

Does she EVER shut up! Let some one else talk. God! You like yourself! We get it.

I've never fast fowarded through a bombcast before.  I just couldn't take it.  Did they even talk about E3 at all?? I missed about 75% of this episode.

Even Leigh Alexander thought she was annoying. She says so on her blog.

hey does anyone know how to tell time in the fable lost chapters game?

I liked leigh... She's like a female shane bettenhausen

wow never fast forwarded a bombcast, but man this was really bad.  

Posted by swomar

Not only was she super annoying, she also fucked up a show about E3. We got almost nothing about what we wanted to hear about... that being E3.

I have to disagree with some people who are saying that we are being annoying just like her by bitching about it, because feedback is important for making better future podcasts.

There are far better and less annoying gamer/nerd female journalists out there.

Even Leigh Alexander still has no idea exactly HOW ANNOYING she was.

do I smell a boycott on Ms. Alexander???

Posted by hakunin

OK, just finished listened to the whole thing. Loved it. Actually got a little boring after Leigh left.

She was fun to listen to. Obviously drunk off her ass, just shooting the shit speaking her mind. Refreshing.

Leigh Alexander was pretty crazy...crazy in the way that Paul Barnett was crazy in the GDC podcast.  But I think I liked it because like Paul, you had no idea where the convo was going until it got there and then you were left with a big, "Hmm, I guess that kind of makes sense".

Paul Barnett was not slamming the products of others in the room, sure he was a little schizophrenic but he was not down right rude.

It's a shame because I really liked some of Leigh's articles on destructoid, now I just can't think anything but negative thoughts about her.

I agree with Lee - I want a controller. However, for me, Natal doesn't represent gaming; it represents convinience. I won't use it to play but I would love to sit down, say a game or a movie, and it does it for me.

I enjoyed that, thanks for doing that, from what I've heard about the rest of the bombcast it really wasn't worth listening to. That was an enjoyable 33 minutes of podcasting, that guy was getting on my nerves trying to force Brad into giving an answer for disappointing moment of E3 though, he didn't have an answer, get over it, you're only a guest after all, calm down.
I guess he was only half as bad as this Leigh person.

Its been said before but: damn that chick is annoying, attention-whoring and not funny. Some of the Giant Bomb crew seemed to agree and I'd have left too if I was in that room.
Made the whole podcast hard to listen but hey...

Posted by MrRedwine

Lee talks really fast, and a lot.  She makes good points, though.  Brad, you are the Switzerland of video game journalism.

I'd have to agree. Not the best selection guest-wise for the podcast.

I had not actually expected it to be this bad.

I agree that this was the craziest Bombcast I've heard yet.  I also agree there's not a whole lot of E3 stuff in it.  I blame Leigh as well for far more non sequiturs than a normal bombcast. Didn't they say she's not a commercial media person but a industry media chick?  If so I hope she's a LOT different in the written word and published works.  I know we all write and speak differently but she comes across as crazy fan chick with nothing between her ears really quickly.  


Now personally I'd probably enjoy a conversation with her face to face because I can be really over the top and in your face like she seems to as well.  But on a regular podcast, especial an E3 specific one?  Sorry no.  Epic Fail.

They where running out of time thanks to Leigh and he was trying to get as much real E3 talk in as possible.  I agree he should have dropped it and moved on though. He has been on before(I'm pretty sure) and has been fine.

Rarely will I jump on a hate band-wagon, but Christ, I must agree with the Leigh thing.

I suppose that's true.  It sounded like everyone was hectic and taking shots at differant games.  I blame the alcohol thought that isn't a valid excuse.  Still, it was crazy and had me wondering who would be the first to start flinging chairs and flipping tables (had they been on hand).  I guess its fine to have one of these types of podcast every now and again.

BTW, this could happen every single bombcast and it would STILL be the best weekly podcast on the internet.  You guys kick ass despite any god awful guest you have on the show.
