What in the world is going on? Has anyone noticed how IGN and GB are taking potshots at each other? Some of them are more direct than others, damn. Is there some beef between them? 
 
My favorite was IGN saying our podcast:free over the image.

OP is on crack. Nothing to see here.

All non-IGN/gamespot ppl tend to knock the two sites with the most traffic - especially them being owned by corporate monsters - but I have not noticed anything specific from either side.

Dude what? I don't think anything like this has been happening at all. I'ma say you're on shrooms.

I've heard the ladies on IGN's Girlfight take shots at Jeff before, but I don't recall the GB guys reciprocating.

I know the episode of Gamescoop you're talking about. It actually said something along the lines of  "Flights to Tokyo: $$$$, this podcast: free", meaning that their podcast was a free way to get information from TGS. It had nothing to do with the bombcast.

Really? What did they say?
#20 Posted by Kibblez (702 posts) -

Someone asked Jeff about this on his Formspring thing, and then said something pretty funny in response. Can't find it though.

I don't recall verbatim.  I think they were answering a question about being women in the industry and if they get respect from their male counterparts and they said yes for the most part but then someone mentioned Jeff, which garnered an "Ugh" from some of the others, could have been Chobot.  IIRC Jeff has made some comments in the past about her and the PSP licking thing and how she got the job at IGN, etc.
 
This was probably a couple months ago.

Strange, I only recall hearing IGN and 1UP people saying good stuff about Giant Bomb on a couple of podcasts.

You're reading into things, he just pointed out that he found a typo in the first sentence he read. You didn't need to make a thread about this.

It won't be a terrible waste of time, they're fairly entertaining to listen to most of the time.

I approve of the extreme paranoia in this thread. Really though I don't follow IGN but I follow Giant Bomb intently and don't remember them taking shots at IGN and find it hard to believe that they'd do something that unprofessional.

I like how the original quote gets pushed back further and further into the distance.

The chair rubbing part at the end is weird.
#50 Edited by EchoForge (154 posts) -

I do remember, when the guys made fun of the DSi Ware releases a few weeks back (specifically one of the My Notebook things), Jeff blurted out a "You know IGN reviews all of these?" or something to that effect. I doubt that would cause a good ol' internet flame war, though. 
 
And oh yeah, I know a couple of other shows have called out GB for the podcast thing--I remember Garnett, I believe, on Weekend Confirmed getting a quick jab, and one of the Shawn/Seans from Gamers with Jobs with guys lobbing a grenade of his own. I still don't think they were harsh, and while it hasn't been a flat-out admission of it, the Bomb Squad have subtlely hinted that it was a terrible idea.
