    We haven't proved E3 is alive yet

    i would say the site is continuing to be at least as alive as e3 is

    E3 is eventually going to become Jeff Gerstmann, alone in a room with a Game Boy while Lockdown is playing on speakers

    neither side willing to turn off the lights first

    Of all the internet parasocial relationships I've one-sidedly entertained, Giant Bomb is certainly the podcast I've dreamt about being on the most often

    they continued this bit past this too. even after austin left, any time he guested on a video feature they'd continue it

    my favorite one was when they did the east coast vs. west coast rocket league game and dan offered austin some snacks across the split screen

    for a site that is not technically ending, this stream really has some finality to it

    they are now running down every former staff member and discussing them

    Based on some of this podcast talk I feel like Vinny at least is looking forward to not being on that side of the camera for a while.
    Which is sad for me in a greedy way. Wish all three of them the best.

    I never listened the podcasts much, mostly quick looks and other video stuff, so I was very confused when I saw tweets about dismantling the East studio a few months back, wondered if the East bit was gonna merge back once the pandemic ended or just cease to exist. Guess that question got answered!

    I've got premium until next year, so they've gotta keep going, right? That's how this works?

    Jeff just said they are giving all subs a free month added on while they are retooling.

    I really which Ryan and Dan had gotten to work together.

    Specifically for Ryan to yell at him when he said some dumb shit.

    I mean...on occasion I listen to this orchestral theme of The 1up Show...



    So, really looking forward to the slow sad cover of Lockdown.

    Well they're giving everyone an additional month of premium because it sounds like production is going to ramp way down for a little bit while they make some changes, sounds like Bakalar will likely be a bigger part of Giant Bomb proper going forward as well

    I imagine they saw just a metric fuckton of cancelations over the last two hours.

    well, that stream ending with Vinny making sure to pay homage to Ryan Davis while his voice was audibly breaking made it very hard

    I use to listen to both podcasts every week. I haven't in awhile. Since around when Dan left. But uh...why is everyone leaving? Are they just done with the format, or did something happen?

  • MaddocMaddoc I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother? Registered User regular
    Probably, but I think they probably saw it coming, because the tone was very much "Hey we're extending everyone's premium, hopefully once we're back on track you'll still stick around with us"

    Huh

    I would've expected the opposite, since he got hired more vaguely in the "games division" I thought he'd just work at Gamespot and maybe appear on the Bombcast

    Jeff kind of said offhand that some of these changes were part of the reason Bakalar was brought over, so yeah, I dunno

    we don't really know for sure, but it's very likely it's got something to do with their recent purchase by Red Venture
