Looks like the old one in that picture.

Wow, I must need glasses. That does not look anything like the old place. Anyway I think it needs some decorations 
#5 Posted by Ineedaname (4319 posts) -

That picture makes that seem like a really demoralising place to work. 
 
The concrete walls, all of those exposed pipes it looks kinda, dare I say bad?
 
I'm sure it'll look awesome when it's properly set up and what not.

Can't really judge properly yet. It's one picture from a poor angle, and they obviously haven't got the place set up properly yet.

I can't wait to see the new finished office. I am sure they will make a video to show off their new shared office!  :)

This.  Once they get everything fully set up, we can see how the place is.

Is it just me or do others feel that some of the magic might be lost from videos like Mailbag with others around? Maybe I'm just being too possessive of my Ryan, Jeff, Vinny, Brad and Drew.

#10 Posted by Jeffsekai (7044 posts) -

Looks like shit.

#11 Posted by JJOR64 (19025 posts) -

The BombShelter 2.0 looks super old, yet awesome.  Can't wait to see it when it's completely done.

Indeed.
#13 Posted by Sanryd (1362 posts) -

I'm sure they'll do a video walkthrough of the new place. 
 
And the wait begins...

#14 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

Nasty 

#15 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

I just had a thought. the old office is sitting there waiting and waiting. Poor thing will have it's heart broken when no one ever shows up. :(

#16 Posted by adoggz (2070 posts) -

needs more wood paneling and ratty couches.

#17 Posted by btman (1038 posts) -

Can't wait for a video showing the new office.

I kinda agree.  It was always funny seeing what other Giant Bomb staff were doing during those random videos and it gave great stuff like the Brad photobomb, but I'm sure it'll also be cool to have the rest of the Whiskey Media family around in the same place for those kinds of things.

It has potential. Let's see what it looks like in a few days when it's all set up.

#20 Posted by triple07 (1198 posts) -

I like that it is still in a basement. I would be scared if thy got an actual office.

Maybe it's because I've never been in a basement. xP

I wonder what the bombcast room looks like.

I wouldn't want to work in an office with no natural light - but I guess if you play games and shoot video for a living it could have it's advantages.
 
As to the exposed ducting and the bare walls.  That is pretty much how you rent office space, just corps with money have the forward team make it look nice before you move in.  Small crews and start ups have to make it nice as they go along.

#24 Posted by Xtrememuffinman (958 posts) -

It looks a lot less...homey. Hopefully they'll add some character as time goes.

My thought exactly. Kind of weird how you said what I was thinking...either way. We will have to wait till they are fully set up.
#26 Posted by Kontrapunkt (413 posts) -

It sort of looks like a LAN center. :S

#27 Posted by DanielJW (4915 posts) -

Ryan has been reduced to employee B-9? Whiskey Media is becoming some kind of monster!

#28 Posted by BrickRoad (704 posts) -

I dunno if Ryan really is B-9 person though. I mean, he'd be first to admit that, right?

#29 Posted by heatDrive88 (2368 posts) -

This looks far more like an actual bomb shelter than the old Bomb Shelter.
#30 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Don't want to judge, but it seems to have that old office feel. Maybe bigger. Hopefully we'll see more soon.

Probably something like this:
 

#32 Posted by Doubt (329 posts) -

looks like a soup kitchen. or a basement of a church

#33 Posted by MiniPato (2744 posts) -

Once they add some wooden paneling or wallpaper, some dividers for the different sites and such I bet it'll look nicer. I want to see the game space where they will record their quick looks.

#34 Posted by s10129107 (1185 posts) -

Somebody sunk ryan's battleship

#35 Posted by Grimace (376 posts) -

Looks like one of those organised LAN parties that go for 48 hours where everyone brings their bedroom out in public and theres always a guy who's really early.

#36 Posted by DanielJW (4915 posts) -
@JJOR64: That's Brad's chair, right? Designed specifically to keep him awake. 
#37 Posted by JJOR64 (19025 posts) -
@DanielJW:   Yep.
#38 Posted by Berezov (504 posts) -

There's an awful lot of pillars in there, I'd still love to work there.

I assume they brought there shaq picture over to hang on the wall?
#42 Posted by Raven_Sword (3447 posts) -

I wonder what the chances are we will get a video tour like we did when the site first went up?
#43 Posted by dudeglove (8037 posts) -

wait, WHAT? They're still in a basement? I know it's sort of their thing, but jeez.

#44 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5444 posts) -
@Raven_Sword: It was one of the very last things packed.
#45 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

It's larger. Which is all they really need. Who gives a shit if it looks like crap?

#46 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4978 posts) -

That place needs renovating.

Take a look at the Phase 2 article and you get this pic, which is most likely the same room from a different angle, and you can definately tell it's considerably bigger than the old one.

Once again, the community jumping the gun like always. How about you wait until things are finalized before you make your lame assumptions
