An interview!

Dammit! I was going to post this.

5 mins in and Patrick already breaks the guy off then goes on some dumb spiel. Unfortunate. :\

That's Patrick for you, talks a lot without saying much.

WHY ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO THIS THEN

We finally get the BioForge interview that everyone has been waiting for and the comments are still filled with bickering idiots arguing about nothing.

The internet is the worst.

I think the complaint is valid, even if it is being put across a bit aggressively here. Patrick isn't the most nimble or concise speaker and if he wants to improve on that, as I'm sure he does, he's gonna need the listeners to give him feedback. Nothing wrong with that.

Words fail. Thanks so much, Patrick. Great work!

Yeah, I guess he should have just not provided you with any content in the first place.

Finally, waited for this!

Yeah I'm an idiot for wanting to hear the Bioforge guy rather than Patrick waffle on.

It's not like I'm attacking him personally, I just don't like his style and I am just putting my opinion here.

Fantastic interview, some really interesting insight in to the game I'd easily say is responsible for one of GB's best ever video series.

Posted by Gaff

Not sure if I should listen to this interview or... just rewatch the whole Bioforge endurance run.

Posted by Superkenon

This interview wouldn't exist if Patrick hadn't gone and made it happen. Just sayin'.

Posted by eccentrix

Epic memes! He sounds like a cool guy; I didn't expect him to casually mention something like Kongregate.

Sweet interview Patrick, had been look forward to this a lot. Really makes you want to watch the whole series again. Hearing "Vincent" is fucking hilarious.

You have made your point, I have seen it. Let's focus on the interview now?

Excellent interview Patrick!

Good to get to the bottom of the flute.

YES!

Edited by mrsmiley

What a great interview. Patrick is so good at having a meaningful discussion with the people he's interviewing, instead of just asking a bunch of questions. This was incredibly interesting!

Thanks Patrick

Sounds like an awesome guy :)

Pc games from the 90's are a breed of their own, and I love seeing and hearing about them. Brings back odd memories of childhood.

Thanks for another awesome interview Patrick, really enjoyed this! Aside from the Persona 4 and Deadly Premonition Endurance Runs, the BioForge videos are my favourite on the site.

@rcath: Vincent is Vinny's evil twin, obviously. Rival to the Vinco Throne.

I really enjoyed this interview, thanks Patrick.

I had just replayed through Bioforge about 2 weeks before it's appearance on Unprofessional Fridays (similarly, because I saw its rerelease on GOG). I had played through it originally when it was new and remembered it being great. Upon replaying it, I can't believe I could have ever thought it was good. The trial-and-error gameplay, the clunky and overly complex fighting system, the awful movement.

After that, it was uplifting to see it played in a context where people could laugh at (and with) it and enjoy it in that context, versus me playing it in a serious manner by myself and sadly destroying my nostalgia for it. This interview has added a nice cap to the whole experience.

@patrickklepek:

You're getting much better at the things you have setup up for yourself. Coming from a person that had the hardest time liking you my god that is saying something. I really am enjoying your content that you make for us now and I cant wait to watch you play Outlast in a future Spookin. <3

Thanks for a great interview, Patrick. I really enjoyed hearing about the backstory.

Posted by NPfeifer

The interviewer should not be talking more than the interviewee.

Edited by thatdutchguy

Fuck...Yes.

Edited by PimblyCharles

Oh man, this is so great. Thanks Patrick for this, you did a great job in the interview. That's amazing that he actually watched you guys play the game on GiantBomb as a premium.

Yes Patrick, if only you knew how to do an interview. The point of an interview is to hear the person that is being interviewed. Your role is to provide short and concise questions in a meaningful manner. Nobody wants to hear you drone on about your own stuff (at least in an interview). Maybe prepare better next time and don't talk down to people who are giving feedback. Also when the interviewee fails to understand the actual question it means you're doing something wrong as the interviewer.

Jesus Christ calm down. Patrick works so god damn hard to bring these interviews and content. Weather its interviews, Worth Reading/Playing, Solo quicklooks he brings us content. If you are criticizing a mans interview skills you should try and do it since you are such an expert of how you should do an interview.

Clearly the most important work Giantbomb has done. Not joking.

Cant wait to listen to this, I loved the bioforge videos though I will admit I had never heard of the game before the unprofessional friday it was on

I like Patrick more and more. I think he's had the luck and misfortune of getting into this industry way too young. I don't think there's anything wrong in pointing out opportunity areas for improvement. He likes long rambling questions where he sorta loses himself a bit too much, but you can tell he's passionate about what he talks about. Doing interviews can be very difficult, but there's an art in being concise, rather than just hearing yourself talk. I don't think Patrick is trying to hear himself talk, but I know he's received this kind of feedback before.

We just want Patrick to be the best he can be, that's all.

FUCKING YES!

As silly as this game was and as many goofs as there were, I genuinely loved watching this game be played through. Really brought me back to the old school RE games.

@vinchenzo: There's more than one type of interview. It's somewhat ignorant to consider your view, whether its a more mainstream representation of an interview or not, to be the correct way to do one.

It also seems clear people on this site sometimes don't know how to give good criticism. Being snarky or condescending is not considered criticism. If you want him to actually consider what you have to say then saying "Wow Patrick needs to shut up" is not the best way to do it.

Posted by hawkinson76

This is the first one of these I've heard (I generally find Preview coverage to be uninteresting), very surprised at the overall quality of the content and the production. More please!

Posted by Superkenon

Just finished listening. I didn't know what to expect from this interview, but I came out pleased. Props to Ken! He's a cool guy.

@vinchenzo: As long as you're telling Patrick to be like the vanilla-default interviewer, you should probably consider that this thing is 50 minutes long. Even if Patrick is talking for half of that (which he's not, but I'll humor you here), that's a whole heap more from Ken Demarest than you would've gotten in a standard format. Personally, I feel like the conversational nature this style improves the responses you get from the interviewees anyway. It's a lot less dry this way.

But to each his own, I suppose. You're free to criticize. I'm just stoked that we had such a lengthy interview with Mr. Bioforge.

Posted by Evilsbane

Fantastic interview don't let the kids make you feel like this was anything short of amazing I was sad when it ended

Posted by ThePickle

GODDAMNIT GIANT BOMB USERS THIS IS BIOFORGE THIS IS SACRED.

Posted by leinad44

Ugh comments... You are all free to criticise, it's how things get improved upon. However, that isn't really an excuse to start acting like a bunch of know-it-all assholes.

Edited by dAVydov

Thank you, Patrick! This is awesome.

Edited by Jayxeno

I enjoyed this a lot - go figure the guy who helped create Bioforge is a strange cat :)

Edited by MMMorrowind92

@vinchenzo: You do realise that the more Patrick sounds like a real human being when interviewing someone, the likelier they are to be at ease and feel more forthcoming. Unless you'd rather he sounded rote and boring. He does a good job of setting the tone near the start and for the rest of the interview, does a good job of letting his subject speak.

Edited by extragingerbrew

Thank you SO much Scoops! I will never forget that flute solo for the rest of my days. "A fork." "Eat light you stupid machine!" Pure gold.

You guys know what the Interview Dumptruck is right?? Normally, these audio interviews would never be heard, and we would only get the written transcript. They throw it up on the site as a podcast because some people just want it raw. By all means, if you don't want to hear Patrick speak, or somehow think that this raw interview that would normally never be heard is supposed to follow some strict format, then don't listen. Read the write up.

I would love to hear more interviews like this from all that goofy games that get played on this site.
