So selling out is the only answer? Giantbomb was one of the fastest growing video game websites ever. They could've done more to increase their audience.

If true, that's shitty on everyone's part but I doubt the GB guys AND Navarro would do that to Rorie.

Didn't they say the office is already empty? Maybe Rorie was just trying not to spill the beans.

They should have a new video segment where the guys show up at random times in the Gamespot offices with NWO gear on screwing with people's stuff and desks, perhaps even a headlock or two.

Initially...I was concerned.

Now...I'm cautiously optimistic and in the end, if this gets me when step closer to Giant Bomb TV...or Giant Bomb the "channel"...fuck yes.

My post in the GB thread (about Rorie):

If you look back further into Rorie's twitter, it appears that he was aware of all of this happening.

Looks like his post about the podcast was just a fake explanation of why there wasn't one at all. Still fucking sucks for him though.

So you enjoyed Gerstmann & co while they were at Gamespot. And you were mad at the higherups that let them go. And now new higherups want them in. Do you think they would have inherently had more free reign on content to bring in if they stayed at Gamespot the entire time?

They tried getting ads, they tried monetizing their most popular feature (which people freaked the fuck over and forced them to cancel), they tried creating a premium sub with added content. Shit is hard yo.

Jeff is talking about how the deal talks started sometime in December of 2011, and have continued since then.

He says that there's been a lack of content and it's been weird for the past few weeks because of this deal going down.

They're about to get into why he got fired from Gamespot.
