Bombcast Breakdown!! - 7.27.2010 - #29

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.

yeayeayea, I know.  I wanted to listen to this week's podcast, and I had time on my hands.  So instead of being a lazy bum, why not be productive while listening to it?  So what I think I'm going to do is cover three years in one week now.  So for this week, I'll do the 7.29.2008 7.28.2009 and the 7.27.2010 ones.  It keeps it a bit interesting for me to see how stuff has changed over 3 years, and some of the newer ones that people are more prone to remember are detailed and cataloged. 
 
And as for you continuity being fucked, that already happened last week when you saw Inception bro, come on...

crazy you bring this up now. I'm about to get in the swing of things pretty soon here.  Work shifts have been finalized, I've gotten some semblance of order in my massage happenings...I'm pretty much ready to pick these up again!
