Hey guys, I was wondering how did you find out about giantbomb?
I came here because I was looking for a Let's Play on deadly premonition.
I used to listen to GFW Radio and 1up Yours back in the glory days of 1up.com
When the shit hit the fan over there Andrew "Skip" Pfister (who used to produce all of those podcasts) said on one of the last episodes of 1up FM that if you wanted to continue supporting independent games journalism that you should go to Giantbomb.
I've been coming here ever since.
Two friends of mines found it and kept is as a little secret under their hats for a while. Not that they didnt want me to know of it. It wasnt part of every day conversation. Then once they got into it more talked about it more openly. I peaked in and stayed. This was just after the first Big big live live show live, in 2010. Now Giantbomb is a major things with all of us and I am sitting here wearing the flight club T shirt after finally getting a annual subscription and two t shirts. I was monthly since start of 2011.
About a year or 2 ago, I was way into let's plays. I googled "let's play Persona 4" and you can probably guess what happened.
The search didn't yield any results so after taking a long, hard look at your life you decided to give up the hobby alltogether in favor of funny yet insightful video game coverage?
I was planning a bombing, but when I searched how to build a bomb I found Jeff's videos about making the site and I decided that a life in prison wasn't worth it.
(I actually came from the ruins of 1up after hearing about GB on a christmas special that Jeff was on.)
I used to visit comic vine ( I still do) before they joined Wiskey media I saw 'Giant Bomb' but didn't look at the site, after I saw some guy on youtube saying "you should visit Giantbomb" I don't even remember who it was but I decided to take a look at it. The Gran Turismo 5 QL was the first video I saw and since then I've been hooked.
Listened to a cod podcast (I know, I know but it was a good podcast till all they talked about was black ops) and this one guy mentioned the giant bombast so I started to listen it, then after like a month of that I decided to visit the website and have been loving it ever since.
I was listening to the Kotaku or maybe Joystiq podcast at Pax i think (or some other event) from 2 or 3 years ago and Jeff and other GB dudes were on their and were hilarious specifically talking about the splinter cell conviction night vision goggles bet so I made sure to hear where they were from and headed here and followed the site religiously ever since. Although only registered here last year and only got seriously into the forums and stuff fairly recently.
I used to follow Gamespot back when Jeff and co were there but sort of trailed off to other sites a little before the Kane and lynch thing I heard about it happening but didn't realise it was the same dudes until a little after i found Giant Bomb.
I remember I was watching a review for Persona 4, because my brother had bought, on Gametrailers and I was looking through the comments and I saw somebody mention something about two guys on Giantbomb playing through the game. Then I realize it was the gang I knew and loved for the Gamespot era, that I had watched since 2003, and I haven't looked back since. Until now.
