Giant Bomb Thread 2: A thread on a popular internet message board
 
[IMG]http://media.giantbomb.com/media/vine/img/white/layout/logo.png[/IMG]

Don't know what GiantBomb is? Check out this [URL="http://www.giantbomb.com/help/"]FAQ[/URL] on the site.

[QUOTE=Who is Giant Bomb really?]From top to bottom, Giant Bomb is a collection of dudes who freakin' love video games. Our editorial team has collectively played and written about video games professionally for over 30 years, and they're not looking to quit anytime soon. I mean, what else could they do at this point, really? We're based in scenic/expensive Sausalito, CA, and we're part of that whole Whiskey Media posse, which includes a strike team of unnervingly fast and efficient engineers and business guys.[/QUOTE]

[B]Update:[/B]

[URL="http://www.giantbomb.com/news/exciting-news-from-your-friends-at-giant-bomb/4035/"]CBS has bought GiantBomb[/URL] (and [URL="http://www.comicvine.com/"]Comic Vine[/URL]). What does this mean for the site? Check out [URL="http://www.giantbomb.com/news/continual-updates-premium-members-faq/4036/"]this FAQ[/URL].

All the main GB crew will be making the transition, that means Jeff, Ryan, Brad, Vinny, Alex, Patrick as well as Dave, Drew and a few other behind the scenes folks.

__________________________________________________________________________

The old thread has run its course, so here we are in OT2.

For those who didn't use the old thread, this is a catch-all Giant Bomb thread. Between [URL="http://auth.whiskeymedia.com/upgrade/"]premium content[/URL], quests and [URL="http://www.giantbomb.com/chat"]special live events[/URL], there's a little too much to keep everything in the Quick Look thread.

So if you have something Giant Bomb related that doesn't already have a dedicated thread this is the place.

[I]When the original catch all thread was created it was mostly down to the launch of quests, these aren't as big a part of the site as they were but this statement still stands.

Asking for and giving out help on the Quests is fine but as a courtesy to those who would rather figure things out on their own please put any hints or answers in [B]clearly marked spoiler tags[/B].[/i]

Just wanted to show my appreciation for GB. One of the greatest things that the internet has bought me.

Most definitely. I've got more entertainment from Giant Bomb than any other form of medium since the website started.

[QUOTE=LiK;34806468]yea, does anyone still care about Quests on GB?[/QUOTE]

I know for the last bunch of quests they had just been handing them off to the interns, I don't think they're quite as popular as they initially were. It's a shame cause I do think they're kinda cool.

I liked it until it became over saturated with Patrick. I don't mind Patrick, but I miss the old crew. :(

I don't think I understand the less than enthusiastic reception of Kleptok. He is a pretty cool guy.

His hands felt like fire!

Also, the Persona 4 Endurance run is still the best content they've ever done.

Man, remember Quests? They got Best Buy to sponsor one and then it seemed to end.

Man... I wish I could justify watching that entire Endurance Run again. I watched it all after the fact and it still took me months to get through it all.

Maybe if I can just do a video a day to substitute for Chrono Trigger being over so fast...

The murder slingshot talk made me laugh a little too much at work on Wednesday.

Agreed. The Bombcast is the highlight of my week. Even the missus refers to Wednesday as 'Your Bombcast night'. Mind you, she also once said "Look, I've got Ryan Davies on my boobs!". Never figured out what she meant by that.

Really? I dig Patrick. I think he rounds the crew out nicely.
