I wish him the best of luck, but I'm not bothered that he's leaving.  I don't hate HIM, I just don't think he was a natural fit.  Being an editor on Giant Bomb is similar to being a co-host on a morning talk show.  It isn't just about general knowledge about games and the ability to type articles, it's about personality and the chemistry with the other editors.  I just never thought his persona complimented the other guys.  No social link for him, I guess

Hopefully he will make an appearance still here and there.

I think intern is a pretty cool guy. He has haters and doesn't afraid of anything! 
 
Yeah I liked Kessler

#104 Posted by Stupot (177 posts) -

Yes i'm sad he's leaving i loved Kessler Kam and his TNT antics. Didn't have a problem with him at all, felt he made a great addition to the GB act.

#105 Posted by Turambar (6641 posts) -

The Kessler Kam was awesome.  I will miss him for that alone.

Why do some people hate him? I must have missed something. "
Children get jealous awful easy. Especially on the Internet.

And Kessler JUST got a haircut.  He looks much better now...

#110 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

No! I don't want him to leave! He wrote great articles and the Kessler Kam was awesome. D:

I had a dream about this. and in the dream we had a heart to heart chat.

really? sweet. I will miss his kessler kam's, theyre how i like my whiskey media productions, full of laughter and shenanigan-ry
#113 Posted by GeekDown (1170 posts) -

I really liked the Kessler Kam, so yeah, I'll miss him a bit.

#114 Posted by Phantomvirus (48 posts) -

Damn leaving already... I'll probably miss Kessler Kam the most. He should leave with a bang, leave something behind to be remembered or emotionally scar the entire Whiskey Media team. Whichever is fine with me.

#115 Posted by gunslingerNZ (1899 posts) -

I've always felt he received some unfair treatment from a certain sector of the user base but personally I'm indifferent about him leaving. The site certainly isn't going to suffer for it.

Well he will still be on the GB forums so he isn't really going away :P
#118 Posted by Canberra (1065 posts) -

I must admit I warmed to him.

#119 Posted by Depth (354 posts) -

I just hope theres less stupid questions on the TNT, oh nevermind thats just the community...

#120 Posted by nickux (1383 posts) -

I don't really know him so I mean I'm not sad really. However, I would like to offer the guy my sincere congratulations on doing a good job and actually landing something as awesome as an internship with Giant Bomb. 

#121 Posted by Kiro (288 posts) -

I'm going to be honest and say that I won't miss him, however I wish him the best of luck to wherever he is going

So yeah, a little bit.

#123 Posted by phantomzxro (1558 posts) -

I will miss the fact that he was not included more i liked  that he tried to keep things upbeat and he knew his stuff. The only other upbeat people now is vinny which is needed, been pretty moody on the bomb crew lately.

#125 Posted by CookieMonster (2414 posts) -

I guess I won't miss him much. He didn't really add much to the Giantbtomb crew, but I'd prefer it if they stuck with him to do the news instead of Brad N. Anyways, I wish him luck in becoming a successful games journalist.

#126 Posted by KME93 (206 posts) -

Honestly I dont think TNT's will ever be the same without Kessler and I will truly miss him, but hopefully let this not be the last we see of Kessler on Giantbomb and may he cross paths with the Whiskey Media staff once again

#127 Posted by Jazz (2090 posts) -

Seemed okay. 
Hope he got as much out of the experience as possible, and it leads him on to bigger and better things.

#128 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

He complimented the GB crew very well. 
We'll hear more of him, I'm sure!

7 pages of trite comments, and nobody seems to know enough about the guy to realise that he's a student going back to school for the year.
/shakes head
Internships don't need to end in hiring or firing.

My last day at Whiskey Media for 2010! Totally bummed that I'm heading back to school. Summer 2011 can't come soon enough!

#130 Posted by Crocio (542 posts) -

Yes, he was a funny addition.

#131 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4608 posts) -

What? They didn't hire him? Idiots, the guy's awesome.
 
Wait, so is Brad Nicholson gone now, too? 'Coz that would be great news for the quality of the writing on this site.

#132 Posted by Video_Game_King (35835 posts) -

How has he not posted in this thread yet?

Brad Nicholson isn't an intern, and there's nothing wrong with his news being posted.
#134 Posted by Zajtalan (1163 posts) -

well......i just hope i can like him more but I would not want him to join giantbomb

#135 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5058 posts) -

He was a cool guy.

#136 Posted by InfamousBIG (3200 posts) -

Nope.

#137 Posted by FateOfNever (1809 posts) -

I'm gonna miss him :( 

#138 Posted by Red12b (9073 posts) -

School is going to suck after that, but return next year Matt, Just get a hair cut and shave and you'll be all good. You're a great addition to Whiskey, don't let the haters get you down.
#139 Posted by jakob187 (21640 posts) -

Miss Kessler?  Dood, he's still going to be around on the forums and such.  Matt Kessler is everywhere.  Moreover, he tasted the Surstromming!  He's in Giant Bomb history now!

#140 Edited by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -

They need to shave his head, or at least make him wear a bald cap.

#141 Posted by OmegaChosen (644 posts) -

I'll actually miss him. I was getting used to his specific brand of quirkiness. Well, if his twitter/GB update is anything to go by, he'll be coming back around next summer. Well, I guess we'll see. See ya Kessler.

Thank God!  That kid was annoying as hell.  The only person in the GB office, I can't stand.  Such a lackey.  The worst kind of a tool is the nerdy kind.  
 
Good riddance and WTF was up with his racism?  That KKK stuff was messed up!  He was real Jerk.

Also Kessler's going back to school?...Just how old is he??? I always assumed somewhere in the mid twenties.

#149 Posted by Ravenousrattler (1417 posts) -

as far as interns go, he was ok

#150 Posted by Thordain (959 posts) -

I'm not really sad to see Bodega go, dude is gonna turn up somewhere real quick, hell maybe he'll be back next summer for another internship. I hope he comes back because I always love the 'rises from the community' guy.
