Go to www.giantbomb.net

Don't worry, I'll wait.

....

Right?

Take solace from the fact that both Giant Bomb, and Idle Thumbs, will never be as great as gamebomb.ru

Wow.

I wonder how CBSi's legal team handles stuff like this.

I don't get it. Is this a joke by the staff, or did Idle Thumbs do something or what? Also, what happens with .org?

Before any of you start screaming and smashing your keyboards, I think the two of them are just joking around.

@sweep: Ryan was on Idle Thumbs yesterday and I'm pretty sure it was a joke that came out of that.

I laughed, I thought it was funny.

It's quite surprising that there are still domains out there which aren't owned by Ryan. Not just GB stuff, domain names of any kind.

It's also surprising that they are still called "domain names."

Maybe it could be all about video game music. I'd be totally okay with that.

I love Idle Thumbs

#21 Posted by Stonyman65 (2990 posts) -

Those motherfuckers!

This is pretty awesome. Way to go Idle Thumbs!

#22 Edited by RazielCuts (3053 posts) -

These are the same dudes that brought you - http://goty.cx/ for their GOTY awards in 2011 (I can't believe they've still kept the domain live). There was also a running joke with the community as well of buying up stupid domains and having them forward to idlethumbs.net. Not to mention the originators of 'Scoops' and 'Wizard', this is just another battle in the war and I say kudos to them #TEAMTHUMBS

it looks like a marketing thing since Ryan Davis is on their podcast. Same network guys that do the Sarcastic Gamer and i think the cheapass gamer Podcasts

That's pretty good.

#27 Posted by Trylks (961 posts) -

I am surprised none of those sites are porn. Time ago that is what happened 90% of the times when writing a wrong a top level domain. It's like the Internet is becoming more mature, in the best sense of the word, I'm so proud of it.

I'm sad that the majority of your sorry nerds have apparently never heard of Idle Thumbs. It's time to rectify that.

After the bullshit they were spewing about Metro Last Light this week I don't think I'll ever check back. They were wrong about virtually everything.

Unfortunately I missed this joke when it actually happened. Was it just a redirect to the Idle Thumbs site?
