I'll be the first to say it. Please don't monetize the Bombcast if at all possible.

Quick correction submission: the design chat was yesterday, 11/14/12. Simple oversight, simple correction. Thanks, Vinny. Watch all of it live yesterday.

Seems like all the GB guys should be rich as fuck with how popular the site is.

Edited by namco51

Bam, one quicklook down and on to the next one. It must feel good to crank out the first quicklook so early in the day like that. Good job guys!

EDIT: Godammit, this was my comment for Karateka. What's it doing over here?

Memories of the 1up/GFW podcast return when any talk of advertising on the BombCast comes up, I just hope that any ads are not as stupid or cringe-worthy to listen to as the ones on the ZD network of podcasts, they were horrendous, especially when done by the Editorial staff ugh :-/ Also I agree that members should not have to deal with ads ever, just imho

The upcoming beta reminds me of when Screened was about to launch and me and the other moderators for that site got to run around like idiots on it before anyone else got to see it. That was just the staff and mods though, a no holds barred beta with all the subscribers will be nuts.

I endorse this picture of Inspirational Dave. Looks like he's finally gotten over his hardcore ways.

Posted by Hardtarget

wooo super psyched about the tested wiki coming soon

Posted by Ooame

The new design isn't too shabby. The black version is superior.

Posted by SquirrelGOD

If it helps them out, then I'd be totally okay with them taking 30 seconds or so before a podcast to say "Hey, this week's episode is brought to you by ______. Thanks a lot to them, and check them out of it's something that interests you." Although, I'm sure somebody would find a way to be offended by that.

OH YEAH, PUSH THAT CODE ALEXIS! PUSH IT REAL GOOD.

Holy crap with the frames per second. This video is all manner of smooth.

"rule free zone?" I'll have a license to fuck with mods?

Oh My Fucking God.

Edited by zoozilla

Thanks for this!

Though the video lags behind the audio - is it just me?

EDIT: I guess it's just the HTML 5 version that's weird. Streaming and progressive are fine.

Posted by Bishna

Please monetize the Bombcast. Even if its just a "The Bombcast is brought to you by" at the beginning. I trust you guys to do what is best for the users and I want you guys to grow. You have proven to me that you can add new people (Patrick) and make the site even better. I won't be satisfied until Giant Bomb is the biggest and best games site on the net. If monetizing the Bombcast is the way to do it, I trust you guys to make it work.

Audio sync for HD HTML5 player completely broken for anyone else?

EDIT: Also Streaming is still acting like Progressive and downloading the whole video.

EDIT2: # != £. I've only just found out you crazy Americans call the hash symbol a pound sign. Hash tags on Twitter must confuse the shit out of you.

No achievements or quests!? Well can't say that I'm not bummed but you guys do what you gotta do.

I'm 100% for dropping reviews completely and doing more videos instead.

If you're (anyone) is "offended" by advertising, it would be pretty hard to live in most cities on the globe, I think it has more to do with people feeling "entitled" :-/

However, I would defiantly welcome "quality" advertising (or any other way to help the site & guys), but certainly not something that makes me just want to skip through it or lament it's presence, hopefully with CBS behind them these guys can get some high quality ads that don't sound like the amateur stuff of the old ZD days, personally I would Not like endorsements from the Editorial staff At All Ever. Ever.

I wouldn't mind it that much if they had like a "Money Zone" segment similar to the way the McElroy's do MBMBaM.

Yep, that sounds totally fine to me. If a podcast is sponsored, it doesn't mean that they can only talk about that sponsored product or anything. I listen to plenty of podcasts with advertising and they usually just have two or three 30 second breaks with some ads. The average Bombcast these days is over three hours - adding a minute of advertising to ensure that it continues to exist? Hell yeah, that sounds reasonable.

Posted by Draxyle

I'd be totally okay with advertisements in front of the bombcast. Unlike the rest of the internet, I can "suffer" through 30 seconds of noise to help support the people who make great content (though it's a bit moot for me since I'm a subscriber, but no ads are not why I'm a subscriber). Three hours is a lot of time to throw away for no pay.

The site's looking great though. As someone who's made a couple simple websites, it's pretty cool to see the underpinnings of something much more beastly in size.

Posted by Phatmac

I'm gonna post so many dicks when the site goes on beta.

Posted by tyler1285

They should make an overly dramatic documentary about the launch of the new site.

Posted by Oscar__Explosion

Also I had no idea about hitting the pound sign for making quick links.

Posted by devilzrule27

Not crazy about the redesign. Whatever though I don't do much on the site except watch videos, listen to the podcast, and once in a blue moon post on the forums/comment.

Oh No! There's a 30 second advertisement in my 3+ hour podcast! The world is doomed! The world is doomed!

I wouldn't mind it AT ALL, especially if they're advertised in a fun way like the MONEYZONE on My Brother My Brother and Me.

That would be great. So many people do it and nobody really cares. Like Joe Rogan's podcast. He talks about a product kinda like he hates it and hates having to do it; basically he makes it funny; and then after that you have two hours of what you came for. Nobody watches TV anymore and has to deal with those commercials; everybody has Adblock; what's one single advertisement going to do to hurt anybody? "Brought to you by GamerGlovz, because you need that extra power when you game!" "That hurt to say." "Yeah, it was great." ...and then it's over with.

I'm new to the Giant Bomb Community. When do these broadcasts take place? I'd love to be able to participate real time.

Edited by ChrisTaran

I've yet to watch this, but just based on the comments here, I would rather pay an extra $100 or $200 a year (this is not an exaggeration) than ever have to deal with an ad ever. This is why I stopped watching all TV and use AdBlock on sites that don't give me an option of removing ads.

Will come back with more informed ideas later tonight after I get to watch!

They usually have it posted on the schedule ~a day ahead of time or so. Frontpage on the right.
