Have you ever had an email you wrote into the Bombcast actually read on the show? If so, how many times, and what was your email(s) about?
 
I have written in a few times, but the only email of mine Ryan has read on the show was my very first one I sent. It was about a year ago, and on the previous show, someone wrote in suggesting that a game be made where the player is tasked with being a news camera man or something or other, and I wrote in to inform the crew that a similar game already existed, being the PS2 Grasshopper Manufacture developed Michigan, in which Ryan then said on the show he had ordered a copy of the game and to look out for a quick look of that to come... Which to my knowledge, never happened.

Three times! One was about 21:9 televisions, and was shocked to learn that everyone on the 'cast ignored the fact that most movies are shot in such a format. The second was about Assassin's Creed 3, and the third about French Duke Nukem.

I recall the French Duke Nukem one, or at least I think I do, it was pretty recent right?

First was one asking if Street Fighter IV was going to get any re-releases and I coined the term 'Street Fiver'

Second one was asking why games don't use likeness for actors in games, putting them in original games like The Wheelman.

Yep. One for one, batting 1.000 so far. It was a question about buying a Xevious arcade cabinet, IIRC.

I've got a question you guyses could help me out with. When you write in they always read, for example, "Archibald Calrissian from Norway writes in, 'Hey bombcast...'" So what? Do you just type in your name and where you are from in the first line? Do you sign it that way? OR Do you work who you are and where you are from into the !EMAIL!? I've been real confused about this for a while even though its kind of a dumb question, sorry! 
 
Also, I've wrote in asking: 
if the appearance of guns changed in Borderlands for all guns 
something regarding the meat virgin, wherever you may be 
and when they were saying Brad Garrett was never in anything good, so I emailed in showing how he was in Fallout

I wrote in once about being blind in one eye and how that made me unable to ever use 3D, and how I was worried that if the day ever came that 3D took over that it would basically mean I would have to stop playing games and how I found it odd that these companies never touched on the subject of people like myself when considering this whole 3D fad. It was about a year ago iirc. I made Vinny and the guys laugh because of how I wrote it, so I guess that means I can cross that off the bucket list. Wish I could remember what episode that was, so I could listen to it again. Meant to keep it around.
 
I wrote a few times after that, but other then one email from Ryan calling me dumb then saying he loved me I was never picked or heard from them again.

I wrote in just over a year ago (7/6/10) commenting on how goddamn big sw:tfu is on steam.

They thought I was crazy when I said it was 30 gigs but steam doesn't think I'm crazy ... it know's I'm right.

Three times- but all in the very early days. ...I may have used a few different names. One was about how Ryan should be replaced with a hot chick (or hot sounding chick, rather), one about what way they like their toilet paper hanging, and one about their experiences with Nuts & Bolts before it came out (which I was stupid excited for).

My friend got his read on one of the E-mail Only Podcasts, and I actually noticed before he did.... I don't think I've ever written one in myself though, and if I did I've forgotten it and it was probably stupid.

1) Final Fantasy Tactics is the worst game I've ever played. Have you ever played games that everyone says are totally mindblowingly awesome and you're like "eh"
 
2) Hey Jeff! Which was worse, the 3rd Matrix movie or falling face first into cow shit after being hit by a baseball?
 
3) Would The Lost Vikings fit in Jeff's list of acceptable answers for the greatest game ever
 
4) Brad said he'll eat his hat. He should eat his hat.

I sent one into the Hotspot and Rich and Jeff answered. It was about where they thought gaming would be in like 30 years. They said there would be giant render farms constantly rendering graphics for everyone's games. Now look at OnLive. They weren't far off. :P

I've gotten a couple read on the Bombcast, but who cares? Rich read my earlier question! Life already complete.

Yep, I've sent one in and had it read. It was really early on. I forget which episode, I think it was the one where they just got GTA 4. Anyway, I asked whether they were planning on setting up a phone line like they had on the Hotspot (because that was always my favorite part of the show) and if not, whether it was okay to send in audio questions via email. Ryan said no to the phoneline but that audio questions were more than welcome. And then nobody fucking sent any.

They read out my Formspring question about getting hardcore Dave on a t shirt, even though they misunderstood the question, we still got an explanation of the origin of hardcore Dave, which was awesome.

I’m 3 for 3. The first was when the site was still a blog, I asked if there were going to be spaces for credits and pages for people in said credits when the full site launched.

The second was about an argument I had with my journalism teacher, who basically said bribes are not only acceptable but “that’s how the game is played.” The response Jeff and Ryan gave was great. If you haven’t heard that one it’s a classic. It’s an hour and fourty minutes into the 5-6-08 cast.

The last one I asked was about the availability of Banjo Nuts & Bolts, because despite it’s low sales figures it was sold out or on back-order from everywhere. I even had to wait a few weeks after release to get my pre-ordered copy.

You're not the only one whose letter talked about Jet Force gemini.  I once had an email read where I asked abut the future of Rare after the poor market reaction to all their stuff (this was before Rare basically got rebooted in a new form).   My point was that they should make a new Blast Corp game, but that got edited out. so it just seemed like I was listing their whole back catalog.  There was a pretty negative reaction to jet Force Gemini.  But  plenty of enthusiasm for RC Pro AM.  The worst part was that the question was read in a week without Brad and he seems like the biggest Rare booster there.

I remember those pretty clearly, but the one quoted the most. It lead to some quality discussion. Good email!

I have sent in six, gotten three of them read on air. The three that got read were:

  • Kinect as Vision Cam
  • S-Rank: All achievements or all points
  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadows stealing God of War's gameplay vs Symphony of the Night stealing Metroid's

The interesting fact about the S-rank question is that they got the answer wrong. They said you need to get all the achievements for an S-rank. But I have an S-Rank in Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway with only 36/43 achievements.

@babblinmule: No what's actually funny is the fact that, I believe, ryan laughed at jeff and vinny's "what?" reaction because I had actually annotated it into my e-mail.
