Posted by JimmyPancakes

I just found out from reading Patrick's leaving post. Too much to take in both of these great guys leaving. Dave you were the heart of GB, I hope you go onto to great things.

Congratulations Dave, and thank you!

I loved your quick looks, hopefully we will still be seeing/hearing you on GB once in a while!

The one newsy/blogpost I don't take a look at. So It is true. Dear Dave isn't with us anymore. I hope the PC coverage continues on with Rorie. Those were my favourite features. Random PC Game was a god send. Love that stuff. Well, good luck to you Dave and congrats on the new child. Wish you all the luck with your future endeavors.

Congratulations Dave! You will be missed as your personality and hard work have been a staple at GiantBomb and one of the reasons I visit this site each day. Good luck with your next endeavor and enjoy your time with your new child...you've earned it!

I've no words, but hearing this:

@snide said:

As for me. While I officially don't work here anymore I've decided to take a page from Gary Whitta's playbook and show up anyway. I'll still be popping in on podcasts, quick looks and the like as usual. I just won't be getting paid for it. All my friends work here, so it's kind of impossible to really leave.

Makes it better.

"For right now I'm just digging making goofy faces at my kid."

Take care, hardcore Dad.

Throw me on the list of being terrible at sad goodbyes; Dave my friend, getting to know you and being part of the community that you've help make what it is...

Well you'll always be welcome back at my home, on GB, twitter, or whatever wonderful surprise life has next for you.

Best of luck Dave! All these twists and turns, people coming and going... it's almost like video game websites have supplanted the void left by the Monday Night Wars.

Thanks for shaping GB into what it is today Dave <wimp…ôr> .

Best of wishes for this next exciting chapter of your life.

I will be rooting for you to come back further down the line.

Thanks Dave for all of the great memories and for making Giant Bomb awesome. Good luck with parenthood and all future endeavors.

Edited by iragequit

Sheeeeeit. This is too bad. Hopefully we can get a Hardcore Dave poster up in the unprofessional lounge.

I am happy to see Rory back. Ryan's fingers went untouched for far too long.

Edited by Video_Game_King

Why is @snide still given a place in the Staff Tweets section when he isn't part of the staff anymore?

Posted by BcBarker

Wow, Dave will be missed!

Let the re-watching of all Daves Quicklooks commence.

Enjoy the little one, they do grow up fast.

Edited by Landmine

First off, I'd like to say thank you Dave. You, along with the rest of the crew(s) have provided me (all of us) with entertainment and wonderful sites to explore for quite a long while now. I wish you and your family the best.

@snide Good luck with everything! I'm I'm not alone in saying we'll miss you. Make sure you come back and play some old PC games with @vinny once in a while!

Edited by Vigorousjammer

Aw man, now who's gonna make fucking incredibly sick looking chat dragons?
No, but seriously, much love, Dave... I wish you the best in all of your future endeavors.

Edited by mr_shoeless

Dave, you were one of my favorite people on the site, and you really inspired me to learn more about web design. Best of luck with wherever you go, man...

Edited by Eaxis

Sad to see you go, so please come around whenever you can.

Posted by SlamVanderhuge

You will be missed, Dave. Please come back for quick looks!

Posted by Noli

Goodbye Dave, Hope to see you again in the middle of quickloocks, endurance runs and many many more :)

Posted by AllThatBacon

Well cripes! Your presence will definitely be missed, Dave. I always loved your love of obscure (PC) games and random quips about Star Trek.

Best of luck with whatever the future holds for ya, duder.

Edited by toots

its like the end of cowboy bebop or something.

all the best on fatherhood and whatever is next! Please come back for random pc games from time to time. You are already missed!

going to play some stronghold and freespace in your honor

Posted by avantegardener

Just found out! You will be missed.

Posted by Devil240Z

This is not the price I expected to pay to get Rorie back...

Edited by DiGiTaL_SiN

It's so sad to see you leave!~ You will be sorely, sorely missed Dave, and Good Luck, have Batman! #GBFlightClub #RandomPCGame #Fungineer

Just realized that this means we probably won't see Karen again on the show. :'-(

Damnit, i listened to the song. I thought it was going to be funny, but it actually made me even sadder D: Cannot be more stoked about Rorie coming back though.

Posted by Cloudenvy

You will be missed, Dave. <3

Edited by MrNood1e

Man, this is a real bummer. You'll be missed a lot, Dave. Thanks for everything you've done for GB and for us! Good luck with everything in the future. And we better see you around here often!

Posted by HeghmohQib

Oh man, I hit play on Boyz II Men while I was reading. Went from "This is a bummer" sad to "All my friends and family just died" sad, instantly.

Curse You B2M and Your Histrionically Smooth Acapella!

Edited by omdata

Man, good luck Dave!

Posted by Griffinmills

Will miss you.

Posted by fetchfox

I'm sad to see you leave, but I wish you and your family the best onward! And we shall all welcome the puppy king back with open arms, he's been missed (a bit more physically by Ryan I'd imagine).
