Sad to see him go. Hopefully they can get through Dark Souls while he is still here.

If you don't know, Ian was an engineer but started to appear in content, almost all subscriber, notably Load Our Last Souls. He also was controlling the big knob for many live shows for the past few months or so.

I repeat: :(. We'll miss your shenanigans. Good luck with whatever you plan on doing, friend. Just remember you're a Bomber for life.

:D A rival site !?

Best wishes Ian. Hope you can stop in from time to time.

Edit: Maybe he's going to go run Magicmissle.com, or however it was misspelled.

I will miss you Ian! You better keep appearing at D&D streams together with Dave!

#8 Posted by erhard (490 posts) -

That sucks. Ian was great.

#9 Posted by MrWakka (212 posts) -

Aw, no more awkwardness between Rorie and Ian over D&D rules.

Wonder if they plan to continue giant bomb unplugged at all.

Maaan... :(

Good luck, duder!

This turns the big knob in my heart. :(

#13 Posted by Dethfish (3743 posts) -

Great, GB loses another one :(

#14 Posted by AMyggen (5210 posts) -

@mrwakka: Rorie has said that they do, in January. I'm sure he probably knew about Ian leaving when he said it.

And congrats to Ian, probably a great opportunity!

#15 Posted by AthleticShark (1371 posts) -

Sad to see another duder go. However he will be back. Once you are in the bomb, you can never really fully leave!

#16 Edited by Demoskinos (16513 posts) -

Your tearing me apart Ian! Congrats though. But man you'll be missed. You guys HAVE to finish Load our last souls before then.

#17 Posted by TruthTellah (9665 posts) -

I wish him the best of luck!

Though, uh... who's gonna fix Giant Bomb now?

#18 Posted by Humanity (12010 posts) -

Guess it's back to the control room for Drew..

If I had the video editing skills I would cull all of the on camera footage there is of Ian and cut together a sappy video to Greenday's "time of your life" simply because that song at this point is so overused that it would be a big hilarious ball of cheese. Please, someone do this.

#23 Posted by chilibean_3 (1848 posts) -

Good luck on the next gig, Ian. Hopefully you can at least finish Load Our Last Souls though.

#24 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1648 posts) -

Dave stole Ian? Well played, Mr. Snider, well played. You all know what this means, right? Drew and Vinny on camera at the same time will not be a thing if they can't get someone else in the control room.

#25 Posted by Veektarius (5456 posts) -

I had no idea his last name was Kelly.

#26 Posted by TN04 (57 posts) -

Good Luck Ian. Good work on the Load Our Last Souls also for your work on the site and the control room! Definitely will be missed!

#27 Posted by jkz (4092 posts) -

You've been awesome Ian. Seeing you in front of camera more has been a delight. I'm sure working with Snider and co. will be entertaining at the least, though. All the best of luck, sir.

#28 Posted by HatKing (6564 posts) -

Dave poaching the Giant Bomb talent, I see. BETTER WATCH YO BACK FOOL

#29 Posted by VoshiNova (1991 posts) -

Love you Ian!

Looking forward to seeing what's on the horizon!

#30 Edited by AMyggen (5210 posts) -

@insane_shadowblade85: I don't remember his name, but there's another CBSi employee they've had in the room a couple of times. They'll find a solution.

#31 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (5159 posts) -

Sucky. Hard to name another engineer who can also work in the control room during live segments? Happy though for him, see ya around Lt. Squigs.

So does that mean there is a new whipping boy position available??

Edit: Also, Thanks Ian for all your work!

#34 Edited by ShaggE (7302 posts) -

Not just anybody can give livestreams the perfect amount of big knob. Be it on your head, Ian, if the sound is too loud or soft when your successor takes over! On your head, I say!

#35 Posted by churrific (490 posts) -

Good luck good sir.

#36 Posted by Levius (1329 posts) -

Good luck, duder. You will always be holding it down in the control room of our hearts.

#37 Posted by Mister_V (1714 posts) -

Good luck duder. Your dedication to the site both on and off camera has been above and beyond. You will be missed.

Aw. :/

Well, if those projects are to be something the general public will get to experience, then I am certainly looking forward to them.

Did they ever finish playing pathfinder though?

#41 Edited by SuperTess (152 posts) -

Awww man. Best of luck to you Ian!

#44 Posted by Brendan (8821 posts) -

I just learned Ian's last name.

#45 Posted by AMyggen (5210 posts) -

Doesn't Coonce work with them too now? Seem to remember that.

#46 Posted by SgtSphynx (1893 posts) -

@ltsquigs sad to see you, but good luck in your future endeavors. That being said, you need to be there for the rest of Load Our Last Souls and I hope we haven't heard the last of John Swordmagic.

#47 Posted by PulledaBrad (631 posts) -

Eventually Dave will poach all the GB staff to whatever he's doing. WHISKEY REBORN!

#49 Posted by Nekroskop (2831 posts) -

@pulledabrad: Does that mean that Alex and Patrick are taking over the site and making a 24 hour news channel/morning show?

#50 Posted by ThunderSlash (2465 posts) -

How many TOP MEN has Dave indoctrinated for his rebellion?!
