Quick Looks take a ton more time than people give these guys credit for. You got to remember the staff is only a hand full of guys, and three of them aren't even in SF anymore. Each game needs to be played BEFORE creating the Quick Look so they don't just look stupid playing the game for the first time in a video. Also, I'm sure Jeff, Brad, and Dan are busy writing reviews for the listed games. Not to mention audio syncing and video editing that Drew and Jason have to take care of after the video content is recorded. It's a tight-nit group of guys, and that being said, you have to give them a break on these things. If they were a staff of 30, it'd be unacceptable, but a staff of 6 in SF 1 in Chicago and 2 in NYC, meh, it's not enough.

Also, don't forget the Bombcast needs to be recorded - that's strictly the most scheduled content that they have, and probably their most popular.

I remember spending a ton of time trying to get some of these quests done. I was surprised to see them go, especially as I believe I wasn't the only one who really liked them. I also miss the achievement tracker the site had where it should a pie chart of all the achievements and trophies earned. Ah, the good old days.

Been thinking a lot about Ryan lately and the influence he's had on my career path, and I came across this and it brought me to tears. I'm so sorry for your losses, Patrick.

@patrickklepek: lmao, the best response. But what kind of dog would it be, I wonder...

As usual, Giant Bomb is the place for those of us who aren't insane intolerant jerks.

Last time I checked, people were free to voice their opinions no matter how right, wrong, intelligent, or stupid we think they are.

Seriously, Jeff acts like a goofball in the videos and on the podcast, but when it comes down to serious talk the man knows what he's talking about.

Keep it up, guys. You're one of the many reasons why I want to enter this industry.

@cloudymusic: well, you never know! I've had years of audio experience since graduating audio school in 2006. I've recorded and been part of podcasts, I own a recording studio that'd id let them use for free if I just had the opportunity to work with Alex and Vinny. I own capture products (black magic) I have done post production many times (it's super fun) and I'm currently a journalism student at Rutgers.

I'm not trying to brag, I just really believe that I have a lot to offer them in terms of felexablity and help! Need video editing? Got you! Need broadcasting help? Got you! Need help setting up, recording, or even need equipment for podcasts or voice over work? I can do all that. Plus, I've been told I'm a good writer (from professors, peers, and journalists in the area who have reviewed my work) Only thing I'm missing is in depth web design experience and photography work - already enrolled in courses at Rutgers next semester to remedy that!

@rorie: are you taking applications for the new NYC office any time soon? I'm a journalism student with experience in journalistic writing (award winning editor of school newspaper), audio / video engineering, post production, and some web design background! I'd love to apply for any position, even interning for more experience!
