Yes cause he knows how to wind up some of the people on this forum.

Although I think this thread should be all the friends joining giantbomb in the next few weeks
So I take it you're a Giant Bomb fan? What do you think of the recent departures? Anyone you'd like to see join the crew aside from Grubb?

I am going to miss Vinny, Alex and Brad alot. The look on Alex's when Jeff B brought up the NBA NFT's a couple of months ago was so funny to me cause I have a deep hatred of NFT's as well. I will also miss them in the GOTY conversations (hope they still could come back in some form for that)

I am a fan of Imran Khan so would like to see him as well. I do like the other new joiners that they announced today.

I got into GB in the last 5 years so I had already missed what most people think was the best years.

TBH, this might be a good thing. GiantBomb had turned into a boring site with boring personalities who seemed like they hated playing video games. At least Jeff Grubb still has that fanboy spirit in him. It might spark Jeff G back to life.

Is he the guy who caused the shit storm with that 8 days in fallujah article on IGN?
Can't see his name on any articles related to that game at least on IGN. I have a weird issue with that game but happy to see if they (the devs) are going to prove me wrong.

Honestly with Abby leaving who seemed to get along with people but pushed a lot of none game somewhat woke/political/trans stuff, that may have what pushed those guys away.

And honestly brad, Alex always seemed old-school in keeping politics/personal stuff out of game talk. Outside of a pet/close friend or family passing away.

Never brought up games for the sake of it was about a gay/trans character. If game was interesting they talked about it.

Pretty much done with giant bomb. Austin walker was first clue. And I think he did not tell with Vinnie, brad, Alex.

Honestly if new show with them is back to old-school giant bomb with cross over with Dan ryckert I'm all in.

Honestly anything would be better than the old Giant Bomb crew

I loved them all in the early days and the GS days buy now they suck all passion out of gaming

At least Grubb loves his Xbox

Jeff Grubb has good connections and so he delivers some good scoops from time to time. But that's basically all he is good for. He doesn't have anything interesting or insightful to say about games or the game industry.

I think his takes and backtracking on things on Twitter are just from another realm of reality.

This is the end of giant bomb. I can't see it going well community wise at giant bomb. It's all going to be resetera supporters and woke people following. Not be surprised we see others join from that community.

If we see less Danny O'dyer then I think u have your answer.

Is he going to be able to block everyone who points out when he's wrong on the site like he does on twitter?

I seriously don't understand the appeal of following any gaming "personalities", especially these days. What's the point?

My interest died with the IGN crew back during the Wii days.

As far as YouTube goes I have a mild interest in perhaps 2 Youtubers, with only one of them being one I seek out and that's simply because they post news. Wouldn't lose any sleep if they disappeared overnight or whatever either.

Never given a shit about anyone who writes for any gaming websites either.

The cult of personality when it comes to the likes of Venture Beat, Giant Bomb, Easy Allies, and whatever stupidly named site or channel is beyond me.

Seriously, what's the appeal?

Apparently Dan is going to be back in some capacity. That's the best news to come out of this.
Kinda wish Dan went with the Nextlander crew. I listened to that Episode 0, and I kinda feel like Jeff Gerstmann just decided to burn all bridges, he either has a comfy salary, and doesn't care anymore, and just wants to ride it out for a couple more years, or he's down scaling so much he can close up shop in a year after failing all Red Venture KPI-s , and move somewhere else.

100% agree.

Jeff is such a damn slob. So off-putting.

Working freelance isn't joining.

There will be lots of other people writing for/working with Giant Bomb in the near future.
