I was reading about GameSpot on Wikipedia and heard about what happened with some of the long standing staff.  Looks like something good came out of it though.  I'll continue poking around and checking out the site.  :)  Thanks for putting time into this guys!

Thats what happens when corporate politics get involved though.  It's always better to keep it small.

It's not the size that counts...it's how you use it.

They can still splatter the tanks with shrapnel, though.

Probably not the best choice of words.

As of now, I shall wait for such an item to become available through the future Giant Bomb merchandise store. Such an item is bound to sell even faster than the T-shirts! :P

Welcome, when you hear that the bomb exploded, it literally DID, it nearly made the site crash from how many people came to subscribe plus it's creative and much more fun than GS. I view this site as a Wikipedia but devoted video games only and with a fun forum that is always active, with talented reviewers.

I say it's time you made a new picture. Maybe a Star Wars one with Brad as Luke, Ryan as Chewbacca, Jeff as Han solo, and Vinny as Princess Leia.
#24 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

The Vinny SpaceBalls picture is as close as we'll ever get.

I decided to come over here right at the time GB started their blog, and then I registered a few weeks after.

I just hope the Forums here don't turn into Gamespotesque Forums. I've already noticed an uptick trend in the number of locked threads lately.   They should put a time limit before the thread locks...give us all 15 minutes to add in our thoughts...For instance, I was in a thread about to write something & noticed the features were gone...this soo much reminds me of Gamespot because it seemed they were just locking threads left & right. People get paid to do that?  Boggles the mind.

Sorry, but that's just not in the cards.  If a thread is prohibited, inappropriate, or spam, it's going to be locked or deleted as soon as a moderator sees it.  I don't know of any forum on the internet that would keep an inappropriate thread up for 15 minutes just so people could put in their two cents.

I understand that and also realize by discussing such, this thread is in danger of becoming off topic.  This was not my intention, being a former moderator for Centropolise Gaming Center (former landing pad for the Mythic Entertainment ship) anyway, I shall become familair with your forum policies as soon as possible.  I'd like to be an active member of this cool online community.  :)  Thanks to everyone for the welcomes and I look forward to ranting and raving games with you all.

Policies? The only policies are no spamming, trolling, flaming, and no spoilers. You can cuss, fuck yes. You can talk about random shit. Good to see you want to keep things under control. Some times the off topics get to off topic for my liking.
