Giant Bombcast 05-12-2009

This week we're joined by Treyarch community manager Josh Olin, who stops by to chat about the upcoming map pack for Call of Duty: World at War. We also discuss PopCap's rise to prominence, dog-monkey versus monkey-dog, Duke Nukem, and much more!

The Giant Bombcast is the world's most beloved video game podcast, and now it's available in video form.

Uh oh, who's missing? It's been awhile since we've had the Vinny/Jeff/Brad/Ryan combo, eh? Bummer. This should be good though, WaW map packs are cool.

Treyarch is just about the last developers I would expect on a bombcast. Skipped over the entire interview.

Even though the Giant Bomb crew probably doesn't want to see this in the comments,
Josh Olin was also on Gamespot's The Hotspot this week. (I listen to it occasionally as a secondary podcast)
I like how Brendan Sinclair wasn't afraid to ask him the tough, awkward questions, although obviously Giant Bomb's "vibe" is always mellow and entertaining to listen to.

Haven't listened yet, but the picture features some ray-tracing. Hope you talk about it some. If not, you better.

The Treyarch Guy stays on his unfortunate message 100% of the time, and should be ignored when possible. Skip ahead 18 minutes to avoid the advertisement.

Shoulda made a wawcast tomorrow or something. The first 18 minutes just don't fit the Bombcast vibe I know and love.

But now ... listening to what is sure to be bandwidth gold as all four of you are in effect.

Re: Sony Publishing Ghostbusters in Europe.

I'm pretty sure this is just Atari pulling a "Midway". I think they jumped to conclusions too fast in thinking that this is just Sony buying an exclusive in Europe and Australia, because you waste more money publishing a game than just buying exclusivity. I'm pretty sure Atari knows Ghostbustin isn't gonna make such a big splash overseas than domestically so they gave Sony the duty of putting it out everywhere else and then use the profits to publish the rest of the platforms everywhere else. I mean, honestly if Sony was really trying to "buy" an exclusive it would have happened long ago since they do own the rights to it, and they would have done it for all regions.

Bombcast Time!!!!!!
I have to promote the GiantBombCast here in Belgium. You can not imagine how sad those game websites are inhere.
GiantBombCast is superior to any podcast I've ever heard. Informative, funny, entertaining,... You guys have it all!
