It's pretty much the only gaming podcast I can listen to. Mainly because they seem like regular dudes rather than wanna be analysts.

I was going to pick it up because I'm running out of podcasts.  I burned through my backlog and the regular ones aren't regular enough.  I heard they (Brad) spoils games like crazy, though.  At least that's what people complain about in the gaf threads.
 

8-4 is great but it's mostly about Japanese gaming

The new premium content series theyve started are pretty great too- well worth the subscription fee. Jar time and Last save are my favorites. Watching Vinny restore his Joust machine is funny too.

I used to listen to them all the time, but I don't think I've tuned in since the start of the year. I don't listen to any podcasts any more, but the bomcast is still my favorite since the original 1up Yours and GFW Radio.

I'd never subscribe (meaning pay anything) for any website but Giant Bomb is a good site. And its not because I agree with them on everything. Because I don't. In fact I prefer it that way. What most people really want from a site is a group of people that echo their exact same viewpoints and its nice that Giant Bomb isn't that. Each guy has his own particular brand of biases and things that he likes and favors. Which is the entire point of having an opinion.

My favorite part of Giant Bomb is when some of the guys don't like some forum favorite like Demon's Soul or Dark Soul and GAF members get all mad in the threads. Truly shows the group think in effect.

I only listened to the shooter episode of WAHP (w/ Muchi Pork, Pink Sweets, Eschatos, Bullet Soul etc), and that was more than enough for me. I guess it might be good if you're into JRPGs and such though.

Very funny bunch, although their affinity for world-building and narrative turn me off.  Also Gerstmann is a sad sack of lame.  Very dismissive over trivial bullshit but willing to give accolades for arguably MORE trivial bullshit.  Ryan Davis is the best.  Didn't they pick up a new guy? Haven't listened in a while.

Giantbomb awesome list:

1.) Vinny
2.) Jeff
3.) Brad
4.) Patrick
5.) Ryan

Ryan barely played games anymore. Just listen to the Bombcast and you'll notice his turn during "Whatcha Been Playing" is laughably short. He's the literal casual gamer in the bunch.

I never noticed this before, but you're right. As the guy who gets to go around the table, he often circles himself out.

But I am not okay with the Jeff hate in this thread. I want to marry that man :heart even though everything emcee said is 100% correct
