"Man, the hate on Ryan this week is crazy. "
Yeah, what is up with the criticisms of Sir Ryan Davis? I think, like VilhelmNielson said, things always have to be kept moving to stay at top in this business. That, and they do drink a lot of energy drinks in the office. That rapidity has to come from somewhere.
He's the host of the Bombcast and pretty much runs the videos if he's in them. All the quick looks are around 20 minutes, and the Rescue Firefighting game was getting close to that mark.
He pretty much tells the guys when to move on so they'll have enough time for other things later in the day, so I honestly don't understand why you're complaining.
" Ryan is the conductor on Giant Bomb express. "Yeah. Ryan's time keeping skills are essential. As much fun as it is to talk about obscure energy drinks or the revolutionary features of Peter Molyneux's balls, if Ryan weren't there the other guys may very well spend three hours talking about just that. The two hour time frame tends to be about the maximum reasonable time for any podcast, and Ryan is constantly aware of this constraint.
I get the impression that Ryan keeps it more business-like. The others seem to get caught up playing the games and talking and stuff, which tends to make things trail on longer. I like some of the long videos and the bombcasts and quicklooks... but sometimes, 10-15 minutes is all you need to spend.
Also, check out the comicvine podcast where Ryan joined them... he seems to naturally take the lead. He has production skills... at least, I think so.
" @Babble said:Yeah, I did, so let me rephrase if it bothers you... "Man, the negativity on Ryan this week is crazy".
"Man, the hate on Ryan this week is crazy. "Did you read the OP. I dont hate him at all. Just stating something that stick out to me and bugs me. I guess it's not as bad as I think it is. I guess it just bugs me. Not a big deal though since noone else cares. "
He produces and hosts the Podcast. He wants to keep things flowing in the interest of creating more structured, time manageable content. Seems like they try to keep the length of the average Bombcast as close to 2 hours as possible (the average actual time seems to be around 2:15), and the average quick look tries to keep it under the 20 minute mark.
