I hate it because it means too many phone calls from my parents asking how to do everything all over again

I was fine with it, and my initial reaction was "well, it's about time they did this." I hope the proceeds go to improve the site, that's all.

It's not like Jeff's delivery is pathetic and forced, he fucking goes for it. I actually downloaded the non-premium one for the adz.

I didn't even know that there was another version of the podcast under the premium section. I'll stick to listening to the regular one if the ads don't get too out of hand.

I think it's hilarious with Jeff using his radioman's voice. This is not unlike how Rev3Games does things.

Yeah, I hate in podcasts when you hear an ad and the voice ends up being that stereotypical sales pitch kind of tone which irritates me. Jeff is good at delivering the lines in a way that doesn't sound grating to me.

So I guess this week's Bombcast marks the first one to have an ad? I honestly had zero issue with that even though it caught me off guard at first, but if this means that GB can increase their worth and better convey to the higher ups how popular their podcast is then I support them on trying this out.

I haven't listened all the way through yet so I'm only assuming that there was only the one ad. I wonder if this is going to be become a regular thing or if there will be multiple ones in the same Bombcast.

What are your thoughts on the first Bombcast ad?

I bet the download for that is going to be FANtastic.

Just reload page instantly. Your post/edits will appear like they normally would.

This is what I do.

This whole "we're either working on GB or GS" dance seems completely unacceptable for a company as large as CBS. It seems tough enough for engineers to fix things when they're actively trying, and then all I keep hearing is how there's no one left to work on GB as a result of GS. Hire. Some. People. For. God's. Sake.

@jjweatherman: The reality of working for a huge company. You have to have meetings upon meetings and send memos and lick asses to get anything done. This is great when they do questionable stuff that they would get reprimanded for, but the company's too big to care. It's just terrible when they then actually need things.

I think it was in a recent Unprofessional Friday that Vinny said they couldn't spare a mic because CBS hasn't replaced the stuff that was stolen at E3. Three fucking months ago. If they can't get some new gear, I don't think more programmers is in the cards. (no matter how really, REALLY important it is)

Yeah that's pretty messed up. I really hope things pick up for them because it seems like GB keeps getting the shit end of the stick and it's going to start giving them a bad image for something that's outside of their control.

Wow I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for the full resolution video but holy crap this game looks awful.

It wouldn't hurt to ask how many preorders the place has. Local Gamestop has nearly 1k or so which is enough for me to say fuck waiting in that line ever.

Fuck that shit.

Personally I was thinking about it until I found out there are like nearly 1k preorders at the Gamestop near me so forget wasting my time in that line.
