Wizards & Cyborgs Unite To Accept A Giant Bomb Award

Ben Coello (Wizard) and Rich Gallup (Cyborg) have provided us with their acceptance speech for our 2008 Game of the Year award. Let's watch!

Sharp-minded readers may remember that we closed out 2008 with our 50th Annual awards presentation, where we celebrated the best (and opposite-of-best) things to happen in video games throughout the year.

One of the most competitive categories was "Best Product From Someone We All Used to Work With." In the end, it was Rich Gallup who took the trophy with via a masterstroke--a video for something called Azeroth Advisor in which a wizard and a cyborg threw down like a lost scene from a sequel/remake to They Live... if that remake were made by T-1000s.


Congratulations to Ben and Rich! And now, Ben, please get back to making sweet icons for the upcoming achievement/trophy/attainment system we're incorporating into the site later this year! And Rich, go back to spying on Peter Moore to see if he ever kicks that 50-yard field goal!

(Oh, in case you missed it, here's the winning product.)

It's good to see Rich out and about, even though it appears he still has problems....

Great video, Rich is awesome.

Posted by HT101

That was awesome.  Rich is the best.

Posted by Crono

if this video had just been of the hoodie it would have been awesome, but these guys took it to THE NEXT LEVEL, the BONUS STAGE if you will, and made this the stuff of LEGEND.

Can not wait for the GB achievement system

Posted by animateria

Where did he get that S.Trooper Hoodie?

That thing is the BOMB!

We need an award for that!

(Also... where can I get one?)

Posted by JamesM

You are!

Posted by PenguinDust

That stormtrooper jacket is the most geek-tastic apparel I have ever seen!  Luchadors, jackalopes and...a hyper pelvic thrust.  Awesome acceptance video and great work on the WoW video.  Dragonball: Evolution should hope to have such exceptional visual effects.  But I'm still much does Azeroth Advisor cost? 

Posted by themaster408

The stormtrooper hoodie is something I'd kill someone over...even Rich Gallup!

that is...if Rich even CAN be killed...

Posted by Spiritof

That acceptance video made me cry...tears of joy.

Posted by Phetz

Funniest video I've seen in a while!!!

Love how he loses the bite of cake at the end.

Posted by rmanthorp

I want that hoodie ... like so bad! =D

Posted by animateria


You are the man, man!

Nice find. I'm gonna wait till my birthday and when I get some cash, Imma get one myself :D

Posted by F1

I gotta get that hoodie, partly because it's awesome and partly because Rich Gallup owns it.

Posted by joslop500

hahaha, thrusting!!! hellz yea!!!

Posted by CallMeRotten


We miss you Rich.
