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.)

That's it.  This is the best that has ever come from the internet.  Look you GiantBomb.com you've now passed the greatest the internet has to offer in awesomeness, from youtube to facebook, from porno to email...you've done it...you have created what exactly the internet it here for.

Favorite line in that vid, "I'd like to thank my former colleauges who worked on some really, really, really amazing games this year, but really went it comes down to it just doesn't match up to a video that the two of us kinda worked on for a three day period."  Amazing.

Posted by Seedofpower

Holy crap that was great. Its FREE!

Posted by strangeling

Oh man, I miss Rich.  I keep thinking how cool it'd be to have him here with the others at Giant Bomb.

But it's probably for the best.  Adding Rich to Giant Bomb now would explode the internets.

Wow. That video really shouldn't have lived up to the obnoxious level of hype I built up in my mind in the few seconds it took for me to see and click on it. It did though, and, well... I just...

That Stormtrooper sweater-type-thing is godly.

I seem to be having trouble closing my mouth.

This is the best video ever.

Posted by Renegade_Kid

Ohhhh memories : (

Posted by Kraznor

Awesome, and a perfect example of the prolonged yelling sequence. Also a fine comment on video-games in movies. Favorite example is Charlie's Angels. Two people are supposedly playing Final Fantasy IX...

Posted by StaticFalconar

awesome, just awesome.

Posted by ElectricHaggis

Madness!  Its good to see Rich and Ben on the site.

Posted by RHCPfan24

Wow. That was pretty amazing. Both of those videos (the new and old) are so funny, and it is nice to see Rich again. Hopefully the achievement system Ben is making will be awesome, and I have little doubts that it won't.
