See here: http://www.gameinformer.com/blogs/editors/b/gidan_blog/archive/2014/05/30/saying-goodbye-to-game-informer.aspx

He says he's heading west for a new gig, and "If you're a fan of watching my dumb ass on videos, I assure you that there will be a damn near intolerable amount of that happening in the near future. "

I think he'd be a great addition to the team, personally. He's been great on the E3 podcasts, and back when I listened to the GameInformer podcast, he was one of the few I thought was entertaining.

Almost certainly. He also tweeted he's moving to San Francisco.

This makes me happy. Not "Vinny is not leaving anymore" happy, but happy.

That'd be great, but....probably not. But maybe?

#6 Posted by forteexe21 (363 posts) -

He's moving to expand butt tumblr.

Dan Ryckert? No way. That is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too fucking perfect.

#10 Posted by MaxOpower (202 posts) -

This makes me soooo happy. Man I'm fucking ecstatic. Should have seen it coming, but him moving west seemed a little to much to hope for. There is literally no one I would rather want to have the job then Dan. I'm so happy right now.

His greatest contribution to the internet, pre Giantbomb of course:

He's sure to have some very important thoughts about the gaming industry.

#13 Posted by JackBurt0n (65 posts) -

I wholeheartedly approve. I've known Dan since college, he's going to be perfect here.

Don't forget his biggest contribution to video game culture and probably mankind:

Having Peter Molyneux review fart apps

This is fucking brilliant if it turns out to be him, love that guy.

#16 Posted by Christoffer (1815 posts) -

Don't give me false hope.

#18 Posted by graboids (210 posts) -

this would be perfect... I couldn't think of a better result than this, which is why I won't believe it until its announced.

Weren't you listening during charity stream and bombcasts? It's clearly John Carmack.

#21 Posted by Gordy (204 posts) -

OH SHIT Dan Ryckert would be the perfect addition. I was not expecting that possibility.

#22 Edited by SeanFoster (868 posts) -

I am expecting at least double the Power Bombcasts from now on.

#23 Posted by CorruptedEvil (3161 posts) -

@dudeglove: Giant Bomb will make you it's bitch.

If Ryckert joins GB that just means more PowerBombCast

#25 Posted by Rmack (1078 posts) -

Dude.

DUUUUUDE.

He's perfect for this role.

#26 Edited by DonChipotle (2745 posts) -

Only if this means more Dan and his Dad playing games.

#27 Posted by Splodge (1595 posts) -

Heh don't get ahead of yerselves guys. This is in no way confirmed. Jared Rosen seemed almost definite too :)

#28 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (404 posts) -

Oh dear god I hope so. Fuck, man, that would be so goddamn perfect.

I don't want to poop on this but we have the same reaction in the Hey, we're hiring and stuff! thread.

Yeah but it's a little inefficient since everything is on page 20+

Also, I can't help it but feel like this is somehow an elaborate attempt by the Giantbomb crew to troll everyone.

I'd put this all on Dan. I mean, the guy ran through college auditoriums wearing a shark suit and being chased by a Captain Ahab.

#35 Posted by RecSpec (3813 posts) -

I always thought Ryckert would be as good of a fit as possible. But I also thought there was no way in hell he would leave his Game Informer job.

Now that he has, MAN. Please happen!

#36 Edited by MaxOpower (202 posts) -

People saying Polygon because of his twitter picture need to take a step back and look at it again. It's clearly a joke. And it's a fun joke, but it's also a really shitty imitation. It's just a purple image of him with a triangle cut out. For comparison:

I think Alex might be teasing us

I bet they will officially announce on Unprofessional Friday today.

#41 Posted by fargofallout (283 posts) -

Everyone is trolling everyone here. I love it. I suppose if he were the new hire, they'd announce it on the Bombcast next week? I don't want to get ahead of myself, but this all seems like too big a coincidence.

Don't you know? THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS COINCIDENCES.

Confirmed: Jeff is a troll.

There's always this too:

I hope so, Dan's awesome.

#47 Edited by iAchilles (64 posts) -

I wouldn't be surprised if Dan somehow became a member of Mega 64 / only sad thing if Dan is hired will be that Cara Ellison was not.

#48 Posted by MaxOpower (202 posts) -

Reading the Gameinformer reactions is kind of sad, but WHATEVER this is great. And what is with all the "trolling" comments in here, I thought we were past that term years ago.

Yeah. I don't know; This might be happening actually. Either way, they are teasing us and having fun with it.
