Hes my favorite guy on the site but...
...Hes always rushing things. Like the firefighter quick look I just watched he was rushing when Brad and Vinny wanted to keep going. He does this all the time. During the podcasts hes always trying to rush things. Now dont get me wrong I love him hes awsome but the constant rushing can get annoying. I realize they need to get things done but maybe they should do something like set a timer for Bombcasts and Quick looks or something because I hate listening to him rush.
I know this isint a big deal but I just really notice it for some reason. It kinda sticks out to me. Anyone else notice this?
P.S. I'm not trying to make fun of Ryan hes my favorite. Just want to make that clear.
"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.
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.
Also, after watching so many terrible movies with terrible pacing, Ryan is probably more aware of when things start to go bad in that department than any of us.
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.

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.
i usually listen to the bombcast twice a week anyway as i need something to listen to in travel or when doing menial tasks. So it being longer would be awesome. I also love to hear them voice their opinions on anything and everything as most of the time mine fall into line with theirs and the rare times it does not i find it interneting to compare my likes against their dislikes.
