Do we know for certain that there will be a Bombcast this week? The GOTY shows are all over and Tuesday is New Year's Day. I seriously doubt that the Giant Bomb guys are going to come into the office just to record the podcast. I know that they've never missed a Tuesday in the entire history of the podcast, but given the way the days landed this year, it seems like a real possibility, unless they had something pre-recorded.

I hope so, with a week off I was able to keep up with the GOTY podcasts, I have no new podcasts now.

They should just put out a 1:00 long podcast that's nothing but the intro and outro, just so no one can say that they ever missed a Tuesday.

Pretty sure the last regular podcast they did, they said that "this would be the last regular bombcast of 2012." And they also did about an hour of answering questions, so I'd bet that there's no podcast for this upcoming Tuesday. They're all on break anyway. Patrick and Brad aren't even in the same state and the last thing that Jeff and Ryan probably want to do is drive all the way out from Petaluma back into the office in the city to do 2 hours of talking.

Pretty sure they'll be no podcast this week. But maybe they recorded some like e-mails only episode before they left the office? I doubt it, though.

I've just asked Jeff on his Tumblr so I guess time will tell. I think this one could go either way, but if there is no podcast this coming Tuesday I think they've more than made up for it with all the great GoTY content.

This thread pops up every single time a podcast is due near X day. Subsitute X for whatever national holiday/mothers birthday.

One alternative since Tuesday might be tied up being a holiday is that they record it a day or two beforehand then put it up on tuesay. That or since nothing really happens on 1st of Jan aside from many places closing down, the GB crew say screw it & record one on tuesday.

I say they should just shut the entire site down on Tuesday and freak people the fuck out, then bring it back up on Wednesday with the "Sea Serpent" layout.

Oh shit!! You're right!! It IS the 1st! Crap dude. 2013 is right around the corner, I feel like I've slept 2012 away or something. It's a whole new year, with it's own set of rules then guys. Anything's possible. Podcast on Wednesday's, anything!!

Yes but like last tuesday it will be less than 2 hours in which they talk about iOS games for the vast majority of it.

I really think they missed one in like the first year somewhere, in which case ehh, they deserve a break after Game of The Year. But if not then it would be a damn shame for there to be no podcast this week.

given the circumstances it's reasonable to expect their wouldn't be a bombcast on Tuesday. Everyone is out, no game news, no real releases, IT'S NEW YEARS DAY.

Hmm seems you're right. I had forgotten about that. I can still revise my statement to "they've never missed a week", since they had done a podcast on the Sunday prior to the Tuesday that they missed.

They talked about it in the 3 hour Famicom stream. Something about Brad talking to a guy from the office about Anime for 10-15 mins, then Ryan doing an audio version of T.A.N.G. for the last Resident Evil movie.
