I really love how you guys record the actual process of picking the games every year. I find it super interesting to hear the conversations that go into picking the winners of the different categories. Can't wait to listen to them all!

Is this going up on the feed? Christmas is the one time of year I need to tweak my normal "latest 3 podcast retention" settings on my iPod, so I'd like to be ready.

It would be fucking hilarious if they were to go to a local shitty trophy shop and send out children's sports style trophies to the winners.

Beginning of the episode is a fantastic start to this madness. I love Giant Bomb!

why were they so outright dismissive of DA2 for best character; especially Brad of all people who didn't even play the game? There were a lot of new characters in that game and at least a couple of them are really great imo.

What do you mean Wheatley isn't actually sorry? That's the whole point of that ending.

Well that's the last time I try listening to the bombcast via this page. I somehow listened to the first 2 minutes and then ended up 1:35 and instantly spoiled the entire episode for me...

iTunes needs to update faster dammit!

You mean like going from 0:02:00 to 1:35:00 without reason?

Happened to me and spoiled the entire episode

The music in Bastion was ok but it seems they like it mostly because it worked with the story. for me the story in Bastion was pretty silly so the music didn't work for me in any of the moments because the moments had no punch
