Exciting News From Your Friends At Giant Bomb

It's not all pancakes... OK, actually, a lot of it is pancakes.

Hey guys, in case you missed our little live announcement, I've embedded it below. Naturally, we had a minor technical issue at the beginning, so skip the first four or five minutes to get to the show!

Sounds like some people are having trouble seeing the embedded video that's supposed to be right here. If that's you, watch it right here.

Pretty crazy, right? This is going to be the thing that allows us to make Giant Bomb bigger and crazier than it's ever been before, and I hope you all stick around with us. Just like Ryan's been saying, it won't be boring. OK, right now we're heading over to GameSpot offices for the first time since 2007. Be sure to check back at 4PM PDT, when we'll be addressing my termination. Finally! The story can be told!

We'll also have a full update on what all this means for premium members very shortly.

(And hey, check out Tested for information about their crazy news!)

Maybe now some of the forum agitation will die down? It's probably too much to hope for...

Bigger budgets, better salaries for the crew, better production, more fun. If integrity is kept.

Want more random PC game stuff too.

I don't see this as bad news after the video. I just hope the sites can remain separate.

DUDE, what is happening anymore. Giantbomb back with their corporate masters at Gamespot. And even more mind blowing, Tested teaming up with fucking Mythbusters, WHAT IS GOING ON !?!?!?!!

Posted by Khann

You know what else you said would let you do bigger and crazier things?

Subscribers.

Look how that worked out for you.

Posted by uniform

Looking forward to it.

Posted by AlisterCat

Great news for you guys. Not so much for me, but we shall see. Hope things go well over there.

Posted by therealnelsk

I am cautiously optimistic about the website, but do wish everyone at Giant Bomb (and all of Whiskey Media) good luck in their endeavors. You guys really did something unique with Giant Bomb, and I think it's an important example that shows people can still go out and build cool stuff on the internet as the medium matures.

Does this mean I no longer have to subscribe to get access to the mobile site?

Shit Just got Real.

This came out of nowhere.

Posted by sirdesmond

Super excited for this. It seems to only mean great, great things. I have faith that all the guys will stick to their guns and wouldn't have done the deal without being sure that CBS wouldn't manipulate or control them at all.

Man this is kind of crazy.

I feel like between this and Tested, this is a whole lot of early effort for the greatest Lie Day 2012 celebration ever.

Posted by wumbo3000

I need to know if the thing at 4pm will be archived because I unfortunately will miss it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWING WHO KILLED TUPAC.

Posted by borkran

Don't change anything, guys! Please!

Posted by BigChief

It won't be boring, but car crashes also aren't boring.

Also, I'm glad I got my subscription at a discount.

You keep your integrity and your ability to remain autonomous and I couldn't care less about where you work from, but so help me Zeus if you start catering, I will WRITE A VERY ANGRY TWEET. RAAGH

  Seriously GB guys, couldn't be more excited for this.  The non-game side of my brain has been wondering for the past year or so how this site would keep going on.  Salud.

Note: This deal means Giantbomb will no longer be a Whiskey Media website and that your subscription to Whiskey (paid or otherwise) stays with Whiskey. How this translates to the new Giantbomb or what happens with your personal info has not been discussed yet.
