Bombcast Breakdown!! - 5.31.2011 - #37

Because two exclamation marks means you're super serial about it!

I have this weird goal of going through each show and taking copious notes, as this whole college thing has taught me. You can find all of the previous entries in this series via my blog, the Bombcast forum, or simply by searching up top. Whenever there is pertinent discussion on a given topic/game/person, I'll do my best to link that individual Breakdown to that particular page.

This is a fluid list. Beta as its popular to be known as. Things are going to be dynamic, pertaining to formatting and such, until I get a feel for how things are going to turn out. Categories may be added, renamed, or simply taken away on 'cast to 'cast basis. Let me know if you see something wrong! This is as much mine as it is yours!

Legend:

  • Voices - obvious enough, who's in the podcast
  • Reviewed - initially going to be reserved for the taste testing they did early on in the series, will see how things turn out later when they start phasing it out
  • Movies mentioned - despite being a videogame-centric podcast, these guys have some serious debates on movies and people/ideas pertaining to them
  • Games mentioned - games/game series mentioned on the 'cast. Listed if the game has some type of discussion or context behind it, not simply if name dropped
  • Companies Mentioned - these guys spit knowledge about companies like nobodies business. best to catalog it all to be held against them
  • Names dropped - much like the games mentioned, people mentioned if it pertains to the 'cast
  • Out of context quotes - the tiny crazy bits we all love our boys saying. taken directly out of context makes it even more hilarious
  • Timestamps-the parts of the 'cast that are fairly easy to distinguish with Ryans segway ability. Oft times these will seamless lead into a bigger discussion on the topic
  • Definitive quotes - the bits where they're all business, and give their honest opinion/prediction on a topic. If you were to jump to a time in the 'cast, these would be it
  • General notes - ideas I've garnered from the crew during the 'cast
  • ******* - multiple astricks denote a few minutes of the 'cast you'd do well listening to, if for nothing else than the hilarity/gravitas of it all
  • 1+ - denotes where they talk about a certain topic for more than a minute, instead of simply dropping the name in there for no discussion.

Yeah, I'll admit it, you have to be a certain kind of crazy to do what I'm doing. But these guys say a ton of amazing things that are too often coming true (having been said in the past), or is just an amazingly accurate observation, or a crazy accurate prediction. Or they're just too funny to pass up. Vinny saying something about fisting multiple guys? I totally spaced about that one, and its just hilarious out of context. Plus, I PM'd Jeff about it all towards the beginning, and he didn't have a problem with it . . . soooo . . . . . :P

You are a crazy person.

Posted by DoctorWelch

This is awesome, and I wish it was something they kept track of themselves. I wish they could like link or associate their podcasts with the games they talk about. Sometimes I go back and play 3 year old games I missed and I want to hear what the GB guys thing but its always hard to know exactly what bombcast it's in.

Edited by Datajack

If you would accept breakdown episode submissions from other people, what criteria would you require?

Id imagine the following areas:

Barebones Structure:

  1. Ep# and posted date
  2. Names of the voices in attendance
  3. Location
  4. Timestamps of discussion subjects-
  • News of the World
  • What have you been Playing
  • New Releases
  • Emails

Extended Structure:

  1. Companies Mentioned
  2. Names Dropped
  3. Games Mentioned
  4. Movies Mentioned
  5. Drinks Mentioned (early shows)
  6. Video games shows (E3, Tokyo, GDC, PAX, etc)

Up to debate submission structure:

  1. Definitive Quotes
  2. Out of Context Quotes
  3. General Notes

Thanks!

@DoctorWelch: Yeah, linking a game to a page from this thing would be pretty boss. If you actually go to the blog page with which this is associated, you can scroll to the bottom of the entry and see which game page I link it too. So in this episode, they talk about Metro Last Light for more than one minute (which is the requirement I put down for a subject to be linked to a page), and so I link it to the Last Light page. You can find where I link it here, just the News and Blogs tab on the left hand side of the page.

@Carryboy: The Internet man....bad for my health since '98.

@galloughs: Eh, yeah, instead of just taking information in the whole time I browse, it sucks that I share a thing or two with 2000 other people or so.

@Datajack: Yeah, you could just copy/paste the whole key/legend thing above the actual breakdown giving you a basic 'here's whats going on.' The barebones structure looks decent enough. the ep# you can get from the url since they actually dont number them themselves. Names of the people actually speaking in the 'cast is one of the reasons I started this, so that would be a concrete point. Location is kinda eh, pretty much the same the overwhelmingly majority of the time. And then the timestamps for the bigger parts of the 'cast would be good to note.

The Extended Structure...keep companies, names, games, confrences...movies, only unless they talk about something for an amount of time as to take special note of it. I've already done all the ones with all the drink testing, so we don't really have to worry about that one anymore. General notes are hella up for grabs. Out of context quotes would be a nice thing to have - they're pretty much for kicks and giggles. Maybe just denote the ones where some ********* should go as to mark a really good discussion topic or something. But the Definitive quotes I'd really like to get up there as almost a must-take-note-of-this. That is where all the real good stuff comes out as far as accuracy and intelligence of these guys go...

so cool

You should do this for every bombcast, in the same thread, so that it becomes a searchable database <3

Duder, these are just awesome. You deserve a pat on the back.
