The weird thing is I stumbled into it when watching a youtube video about some weird robot anime japanese singer.. that I found equally strange. One of those days.

Their Fast Glances are second to none.

Been a while since I last checked out that site. Looks like they fully knocked off the wiki and quest system.

You did, also worryingly their website is as popular (if not more - note how their Youtube has 10 million more views and more subs) than the real GiantBomb. They had livestream viewer counts of well over 2000 before when we saw it was up. Crazy.

Old news buddy... old news.

Hell yeah, Gamebomb. I actually go there just to check it out once in a while. Google translate makes some of it readable, and it's not that bad. I would totally use that site if I were Russian.

Thank god Castiel is here to clarify this for us.

There's no way I could've figured that out based on the very first reply to the thread or anything.

@GnomeonFire: Yup, in the alternate universe where I'm Russian, gamebomb.ru is totally my go-to game site.

You're a bit late on this, but yes.

@Rabbykayn: What are you so butt-hurt about?

I guess there is just a lot of cynical not so active users on this site.

#15 Posted by Vegetable_Side_Dish (1723 posts) -

No, you actually stumbled upon the original source of this site's whole concept - this one is just a rip-off (but most people won't admit to it).

#16 Posted by Rabbykayn (215 posts) -

@Vegetable_Side_Dish: that would be quite the turn of events!

#17 Posted by GalacticPunt (1014 posts) -

I clicked on their most recent news video, and the voice seems to be pitch-shifted up. I think the idea is that the site mascot is talking to you!

This bad-ass right here:

Pretty sure my favorite thing about that site is that they have half-stars.

#19 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Gamebomb is maybe my favorite long running joke on GB. It never gets old seeing how much they totally jacked.

Does anyone have a link to that thread where one of the admins from GameBomb started cursing us all out?

@dudeglove: That was probably the most bizarre 15 minutes of thread-scoping I've ever done.

What? The whole message was never even translated?

#29 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Fact: GameBomb has more YouTube subscribers than GiantBomb.

#30 Posted by Alexander (1721 posts) -

Fact: Game Bomb has fewer obnoxious ads than Giant Bomb.

How can they blatantly steal all this and not get any punishment for it?

Russia. That's how. They've got an obviously corrupt government, they silence anyone who speaks loud enough against the government, and nobody can do shit about it, cus it's Russia.

Yup. And your government is perfect. They just do it to any country instead of citizen.
