[Giant Bomb] was a website about video games

edited May 4 in Social Entropy++
Attention: Giant Bomb isn't dead dead, but Brad, Vinny and Alex have announced that they're leaving at the end of the week. So while it's still around it's definitely won't be the same going forward. Jeff is signaling that it's not the end and there will be more to come.











Who knows where we go from here. Jeff is still there. Who knows. He's about to have another baby, so who knows x1000.

Remember Giant Bomb? I remember Giant Bomb.

Fuck.

    Jeff said he'll announce what happens next with Giant Bomb later this week or next.



    Whatever happens next, Vinny, Brad, and Alex leaving is not a minor change!

    I wish that someway, somehow, that I could save every one of us

    Game Room, classic trash, Dynasty Warrior quick looks, classic trash, 65% of Ranking of Fighters entrants, classic trash

    All this sewage, like sludge in the rain, a rain of more sludge

    there might be a non-compete exit clause in their contracts I guess, but they also must grapple with whether they still want to do video games talky show shit anymore

    I just heard and tuned in

    this is so, so sad :(
    GB has been synonymous with video games for so long now, for me.

    i'm not going to cancel my subscription immediately, i'll stick around and see how things go, but i've been falling off for a little while, the new people brought me back in, then the new people left, now the old people are leaving, so let's see if there's any new new people

    I think the realities of that are that if they want to continue doing that, they don't even need a website. They can make a podcast and run a twitch channel and/or a youtube channel, have a patreon, or something like that.

    I don't necessarily think any of them go that route, personally.

    Brad has been less forward facing for awhile, Vinny sort of fell into that role in a weird way, Alex I don't think would be comfortable doing it on his own.

    I highly doubt it tbh. Even if, without Vinny, GB is dead anyway, at least to me.

    Yeah for me it's all eyes on Jeff, I don't think I could ever completely tune out of whatever he's associated with in the moment

    but FUCK this sucks

    Surely working in game criticism would be better than engineering for equity and compensation and harassment and- ahahahahaha

    No, seriously, someone hire me

    Non-compete's are almost impossible to enforce unless you're the CxO of some company.

    I lost it when that was revealed - I think Jeff's commando-crawl setup for it enhances it
