Got this voicemail invite to Shanghai from Kane & Lynch 2's Lynch last night.

  
He's claiming that they fucked up pretty badly last time around? Yeah, I guess I'd agree with that.

lol for a sec I thought this was actually directed at Jeff.

Posted by TwoOneFive

WOAH 
 
 
they are really reaching out to jeff.  
 
i imagine their meetings for the game have a big poster of you there at all times and after every idea is presented they all decide wether or not Jeff would like it.

This made me laugh. A lot of bizarre 4th wall, self-aware stuff going on in that message, especially when it comes to Jeff and this site in particular. Weird...
 
Justin McElroy of Joystiq was broadcasting live on Ustream last night leading up to the relaunch of Joystiq.com when he got this same call. He held his phone up to his headset mic, so the hundred or so people could hear it.
 
And then about 10 mins later, Leigh Alexander tweeted about getting the same one. 
 
Looks like he's making a lot of invites/apologies...

Sounded like he said - ''its a solid game''

That would have been a million times cooler.

Lol, it does feel like they made that message with Jeff in mind.
Posted by Atomasist

Posted by MeatSim

Oh the irony of sending this to Jeff.

Posted by DjRich

Posted by Gav47

No, it's cool.  Video game characters are not real, you know.
Posted by Monkeyman04

OH GOD! 
 
That's really great. At least they admit to fucking up last time.

Posted by PirateNeal

Its ok  Lynch, if you didnt fuck up last time we probably would not have a Giant Bomb in this world

Posted by RE_Player1

i love how jeff of all people got this call lol

Posted by Joru

Some awful jokes in there, but it's propably a fun thing to get on your phone.

Posted by ocdog45

i sad i would never play the shit game the first time and i wont the second time

Posted by PhilESkyline

If he would have started by saying "Hey Jeff uhhh...sorry about last time" that would have made my year. Seriously lol.

Posted by MadJim11

haha kudos to Jeff for posting this! Its a bit of a slap in the face but he's man enough to take it!

Posted by risseless

"I have a girlfriend now."  Hah, pretty funny they sent this, and thanks to Jeff for posting it. Good humor all the way around. Kudos.

Posted by gosukiller

Topical!

@MadJim11:  i think every  website got this. Not just GiantBomb.
Posted by crusader8463

If Jeff was the only one to get this then lol. If it was just sent out to a bunch of press then not so lol.

Posted by ZmillA

*waits for all the kiddies to make jokes about jeff and the previous game + the "incident"*

Posted by Bones8677

That's just damn creepy.

Okay who tore down the fourth wall?

I clicked on this thinking it said Jane Lynch. This voicemail was very different than what I was expecting, but the byline of leave me alone psycho would have been much more interesting for Jane I think.

Posted by Codeacious

Even though this wasn't directed just at Jeff, it'd be freaking hilarious if it was.

Posted by TheYear20XX

I love all the subtle hints in this message. Pretty cool.

thats what i heard. This is awesome!
Posted by Milkman

If Jeff was the only one who got this, it would be absolutely hilarious. But if everyone else did (which is probably the case), it's still pretty cool.

ROFL @ " but it's a little too late to admit you effed up last time." and " He's claiming that they fucked up pretty badly last time around? Yeah, I guess I'd agree with that."  Are you guys sure that all websites got this Voicemail too? It sounded like it was meant specifically for Jeff.
 
Anyways, regardless of whether it was sent to everyone or not, it was clearly referring to what happened at Gamespot.

No one is more authentic than Eidos.

Posted by Karmann

LOL! This is creepily hilarious! I'm sure that if it wasn't for the whole Jeff thing, they wouldn't have sent this out at all !

Posted by Phished0ne

i love the ppl that are acting like everyone in the games press didnt get this. 
 
but Lynch sounds like a George Carlin parody or a new yorker...

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Oh the irony.

Posted by MiniPato

"It's a solid game. Looks good, runs well." 
 
Is that mobster/heist slang? Or is he really talking about the game?

Posted by RobJ

Very, VERY creepy.

Posted by buzz_killington

Hahahahah... Lynch is fucking crazy!

Posted by Darkstar614

Love some good Irony

Posted by DukeTogo

2007 y'all, let it go.  I'd say Jeff got more out of it than the offenders, so re-living that shit is silly.  I'd say the part they "fucked up last time" was the horrible game we got more than any collateral damage some game site caused.  io is better than that at making games, and delivering a rushed game that was competing with another - that ironically got delayed - to make it to market was the biggest offense.

Posted by RagingLion

Oh ok, so everyone got this call then.  My brain still only wants me to see this the one way though.  The Jeff perspective.

Posted by mattysen

Did some research on this voicemail, and no other website as at least posted anything about it... 
Anyway if they really did "fuck up last time" I mean look at Gamespot now, its a mess

He said it is a "solid GIG", not game. 
 
Also, I can't believe people are trying to tie this in with GameSpot. It has nothing to do with that. Giant Bomb wasn't even the first site I saw this on today.
