Giant Bomb stinks. Everyone stinks in fact. I love video games but I can't force myself to visit any gaming sites besides this one to be honest.

Yeah, I don't care shit about GB, too.

Has anyone backed up the Shenmue related content at least? Shenmue 2 playthrough? Huber Hype? E3?

Damn, this sucks. When they started out I noticed that I often preferred their reviews compared to those of other gaming sites. It's a bit surprising though considering the new offices etc. It seemed to be a bit of a new start. On the other hand, you could sometimes sense that their budget probably wasn't that big. In general, it's a pity though since these guys were among the more enthusiastic ones out there. I also liked the way they paid attention to immersion and context in games.

I just made a YTMND (remember that?) for gametrailers to immortalise some of their best ever jokes into bitesize chunks.



bloodborne.ytmnd.com



Also another one based on huber when he couldn't contain his hype for No Man's Sky huberhype.ytmnd.com xD

...still so hard to believe these guys are really gone... :*-(

Also, interesting article on the matter, although Jim can be quite questionable... http://www.thejimquisition.com/2016/02/ ... of-itself/

I liked the bosman stuff, mandatory update was fun with ellise, bloodworth was based as fuck, and ben was THE GUY.

I think we all share the love for Huber.

Meh, I think the only reviewer that I really like is yahtzee. His Zero punctuations are still awesome, some of his drawn outs are good, and his extra punctuations are pretty good.

It's weird.

Maybe we are again on asia shadows, and gaming really is going to be casual and on cellphones (it's a safe bet I guess).

If any of you get the chance and you're on twitter send Huber a tweet in support. He's having a tough time, looks like it took him by surprise. Says he appreciates the messages.

Game Informer is pretty good. Their staff seem like genuinely nice people and not douchy like GB.

Hasn't that Jeff guy from GB talk crap about Shenmue before? Like it was never good game or a combination of bad ideas or something like that... correct me if I'm wrong....

I like Giant Bomb, but they're very hive-mindy and their commentary on the E3 press conferences last year were crazy dull.

Sucks to see them go but I haven't visited their site in years thanks to the advent of YouTube. Their site by comparison was always slow and sluggy where as YT was fast and quick.

On top of the fact alot of gaming content is readily available there and Twitch, it was a long time coming.
