Jeff is much more tolerable when he's not screaming his head off into the mic like he constantly does on WC.

Jeff Cannata was the only reason i listened to weekend confirmed but sadly as nice and Garnet lee is he is a huge un funny dork and now i cant listen to the podcast anymore. Jeff would make a good addition to the bombcast grew, there has been a big hole since the passing of Ryan and Patrick moving away and his presence on the site halved. Giant bomb needs to crew up with another full time member at least and let Drew get back to playing his weird europian sims off in some corner somewhere where i dont have to hear about them :)

Great to see "2 Ns 1 T" on Giant Bomb. Get him on whenever you can.

Guess I'm a rarity in that I have no idea who this guy is. He really seems to like Nintendo though.

Guess I need to go buy Kameo. Also I don't remember Perfect Dark being that bad.

I think I'd seen Jeff on a Bonus Round before I'm not quite sure, regardless I really enjoyed this interview and plan to check out more of Jeffs work. If this was any indication of the quality of his work and attitude viewing more of it sounds like a worthy investment of my time. Great interview as always Patrick.

Cannata is a all-star substitute for the Wolf.

OMG, Blizzcon talk! I hate that Giantbomb doesn't talk about Blizzard games very much.

What would happen if you put Vinny Caravella and Jeff Cannata in the same room? We need to know!

Fantastic episode. Also, Cannata is too handsome.

Too much Italian optimism.

The most devious green screen shenanigans.

I don't think I have ever seen a message board so close to unanimity. Cannata and Giant Bomb are, in my opinion, the two shining lights of games media.

Is it just me or is the volume level of these Bombin' the AM podcasts (audio only version) a little low? I'm struggling to hear at max volume whilst walking next to traffic, and i dont have a problem with the regular bombcasts at all.

Any chance you can turn up the volume please @patrickklepek? Unless its just me ofc...

Will keep this in mind.

I should totally start listening to Weekend Confirmed. Jeff's a good dude.

You really should, although Jeff doesn't make it in every show.

Waking up Jeff Cannata early? Yeah right. That dude probably ran a 5K before he did the show.

Having no context for Weekend Confirmed, he seems alright I don't know. Nice guy, nice guest but I don't see what's getting people so worked up as to suggest he should come over to GB or anything.

I am really tired of hearing the word "cynical" incorrectly used by Jeff Cannata.

"doubtful as to whether something will happen or whether it is worthwhile."

Pretty sure he is using it correctly. He uses it to refer to people going into a game assuming/hoping it will be bad. Or, putting it directly into the definition's wording, going into a game doubtful that it will be worthwhile.

YES! Such a fan of Cannata. Always thought he was a sure fire hit to be a Giant Bomber one day.

He'd be cool but I doubt he'd want to leave the LA area since he acts. Also if GB does hire another person I'm betting they want someone to be SF based since they now have 2 offsite guys.

Hey Patrick, great show! If we can't have The Wolf, Jeff is always a good fill in--was a big fan of TRS.

Cant stand Jeff -.-

You must hate joy and enthusiasm.

It's largely because people really hoped Weekend Confirmed would be the new 1Up Yours.

That certainly isn't Jeff's fault. He is easily my favorite person to listen to on Weekend Confirmed. I only listened to 1UP Yours in it's last year or so, but there was no way you were going to repeat that. 1Up had some of the most talented people in the industry that could come in at anytime and give their opinion. All those guys are now off doing their own thing at many different companies. Trying to recapture something like that would be nearly impossible.

More Jeff Cannata on GB please. It would be pretty amazing if he joined the GB crew. Although that's probably a dream that won't come true.

I began following Jeff back in the TRS days when he spoke about Bioshock and perfectly articulated what I felt made the game so special.

Avatar image for silentbob251

@edeo: Totally disagree. I've been following his stuff for 6-7 years now (whenever TRS started) and I generally find him to be the most enjoyable person to listen to among his co-hosts. I've followed his advice often in the film and comics realm because I'm not as versed in those areas as I am with games and have found some really awesome stuff based on his recommendations. He's not a paid critic or a writer so he comes at it from a different angle to most people who we see and read on a daily basis. I don't always agree with him, but he always makes fair arguments.

He mad this rad morning show totally rad (i'll let myself out)

That might actually cure the internet. Or end it forever.

@silentbob251: I come to this site to get away from the constant echo chamber of recycled ideas. I can't remember him ever saying anything insightful on his shows. Enthusiasm can be fine as long as it doesn't seem phony. Seemed out of his league. Mostly just fluff. Maybe his personality just annoys me. But at least he's no Arthur Gies.
