The Bombcast has clearly entered a new golden age with the dawning of the Bradcast and Dan bringing in a new, crazy energy into the room. That being said, how crazy will the game of the year podcast be?

Will the game of the year deliberation be 10 hours since the Bradcast is not afraid of running long? Will the combined forces of Giant Bomb San Francisco, Chicago and NY be united, making for a lot of people talking over each other during deliberations? Will DOTA 2 win game of the year since Brad was not able to get it through to the top when Jeff was moderating? Will Dan be able to get a WWE game into the top 10?

Asking half-jokingly, and half-serious since last year's GOTY deliberation was when I fully realized how far down the darkest timeline the site had gotten. Like I said, the podcast has entered a new golden era and is must-listen for me again, but I really hope my highlight for the podcast's year is reflective of how entertaining these guys can be again.

I honestly can't tell if Patrick is being sarcastic with this article or not. If he is, hilarious. If he's not, then he's being a mouthpiece for the games industry: There's nothing wrong with the games industry this year! There's totally cool games coming out this year! Not everything is being delayed until 2015! We still have Call of Duty! Right? Guys? Guys? Where is everybody going?!?

Is it possible somebody can make an audio version of this? Want to hear their thoughts, but don't have time to watch 2.5 hours worth of video.

Modern Warfare 3 has such a good cast. I'm amazed they never try to use that as selling point. It's like with Black Ops; while Sam Worthington was obviously one of the last to the project, I'm sure it would have had some larger crossover appeal had they mentioned him as starring in it.

I don't think major actors doing voice work is a draw to a game. For mass effect 2, it is a nice mention that they got all of those big names but I doubt people are going to be drawn to it because Trinity has a voice.

Trinity, no. Arnold? That's something you might try to put in the ads.
Also, it would his first post-Governor role, not counting Expendables.

Internet Movie Database is kind of unreliable for cast listings for projects pretty much up until the project is released, and sometimes not even then. Still, this one is kind of intriguing. 
 
There's absolutely nothing to back this up, that I can find, but IMDB lists THE Arnold Schwarzenegger as voicing the character of "Goku," of course tagged with the listing of "Rumored." If true, he'd be joining an already impressive cast that supposedly includes Tobey Maguire, Christopher Meloni, Corey Stoll, and of course, Craig Fairbrass.

Now, it's probably not true, but could you imagine if it was? Would Arnold in a Modern Warfare game be the best thing ever, or BEST thing EVER?

Everybody should seriously watch it. It's literally better than every video game movie, combined.

I'm confused by the question. I mean, Quentin Tarantino might put "Yes" because he worships feet. Is that what he's supposed to put?

They said a 2012 release date but no director or casting for it.

I don't think they even have concept art yet, because the other two on the panel showed concept art.
 
At this point, if they keep a steady pace, I think a holiday 2013 release or spring 2014 release would be feasible.
