Due to the recent layoffs with people who where involved with TRON: Evolution I was wondering about the security of one John Vignocchi's job. Also who wants more Johny V I know I do.

#2 Posted by TooWalrus (13139 posts) -

Yeah... or don't. I like the guy, but I wouldn't want to see him fall back into game journalism.

#3 Posted by Spartan117Tron (90 posts) -

Ya i know its just every time the GB crew gets with Johny V its pure gold. I atleast want him on another podcast or video other than the E3 one.

Did TRON not sell well??  Why would they be laying people off?

#5 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

But then giantbomb would become a shitty 3 star game I mean site!

#6 Posted by DriveupLife (909 posts) -

He's not 5th man potential. I'd rather have 10 others before him.

#7 Posted by mrfizzy (1522 posts) -

Im fair sure theres another topic already discussing how he defs hasnt lost his job. 

#8 Posted by Spartan117Tron (90 posts) -

I heard he's already been offered a job as Ice-T's double.  You know to do things Ice-T wouldn't want to do like get harassed by mobs of people, grocery shopping and getting shot.

#13 Posted by Spartan117Tron (90 posts) -

I just don't want that one girl from the E3 podcast she was so fing annoying

#14 Posted by Spartan117Tron (90 posts) -

Love the avatar by the way. A real bad ass cat there
#16 Posted by TJ311 (415 posts) -

it was the studio that made the game that got layoffs. Johnny V works for Disney Interactive, different they are.

#17 Posted by p_p_o_d (543 posts) -

why? 
 
looks at Johnny's past work. 
 
Worked a midway.
 
worked at the crimecraft studio.
 
worked at Propaganda. 
 
If you want Whiskey media to still be around in a year keep Vignocchi away.   The dude is walking bankruptcy

He didn't work at Propaganda, he does PR for Disney Interactive. His job is pretty safe.
#19 Posted by JJOR64 (18911 posts) -

Hire him and make him review shitty games.  It would be great.

Haha! That's harsh, but it is true -- the guy has had some bad luck when it comes to the companies he's worked for.
 
Where did he work when he was a game journalist? GameSpot? 
#21 Posted by GlenTennis (3144 posts) -

Just to spite you they are going to hire him, but keep him behind the cameras with Drew, and he won't even be on the podcast.

#22 Posted by Brendan (7696 posts) -

Dudes, he's not a developer, he works at Disney.  All you have to do is check his page on Giantbomb.com, the website about video games.

Because everyone who's ever guested for WM deserves a job there.

#39 Posted by virtorio (248 posts) -

I like the postcasts he appears on, at the frequency at which he appears.  Any more and he'd drive me up the wall.

That's kinda what popped into my head when I read the title of this thread. 
 
Gotta love JV, though.

I'd rather have Johnny V sit in on the bomcast then Alex...that guy is seriously ruining my enjoyment of the bombcast.

Apparently it didn't even sell 200k copies. "
Oh shit, the entire development studio closed? I thought they just laid off some of the work force. Damn, man.
