Surreal seeing my tweet in a forum post... anyway yeah. Stoked Rorie is getting more work, one of my favorite writers out there and just an all around great guy.

yeah, i seem to recall Alexis mentioning this during the Halo live stream. Nice to have him back in the biz.

Kinda, is he employed by them or is he freelancing?

Freelancing, for the moment. I really hope Matt lands a job, either at GamesRadar or anywhere else. He's a great guy.

MATT RORIE

#14 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2406 posts) -

It may be freelance, but at least he's working!

#15 Posted by Ramone (2976 posts) -

Hey CBSi? GET ON THE FUCKING BALL AND HIRE THIS MAN.

#16 Posted by Scrumdidlyumptious (1641 posts) -

Rorie is ours. They can't have him.

#17 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4469 posts) -

Good for him, I wish GB got him instead.

#18 Posted by dudeglove (8157 posts) -

Does this mean he's stopped molesting small dogs on the street?

I think Jeff or whoever would be in charge of such things is the real traitor for not hiring Rorie.

#20 Posted by RPGee (763 posts) -

Awesome! I've missed the dulcet tones of Mr and his lovely work. Well done, sir!

#22 Posted by RockyRaccoon37 (468 posts) -

Oh man, Rorie writing a new game guide for Gamespot is both supremely awesome and kind of depressing.

Still, really happy that guy is at work again-- hopefully he finds a good job that allows him to write reviews and the sort.

Get Rorie on a TNT, pronto!

#25 Posted by Bulby33 (611 posts) -

Wait, why isn't he working for Giant Bomb?

#26 Posted by PokeIkzai (385 posts) -

Well whatever I'm just happy he's found some work.

#27 Edited by RVonE (4687 posts) -

It's still a damn travesty that he isn't onboard with Giant Bomb already.

EDIT: but of course I'm really happy for him that things are looking up; he's been without a job for a while, now.

They don't have the budget to bring on more people yet, according to Jeff.
#29 Posted by TheHBK (5554 posts) -

Oh and how ironic, the guy that betrayed him, left him high and dry and sent him to the bread line is the first to "congratulate" him.

#30 Edited by Abendlaender (2867 posts) -

If we can't have Rorie no one will!

@TheHBK:

What? What do you mean?

That could not be more complete and utter bullshit.

But he also mentioned at some point that they were "talking to a guy" or something like that when he was asked about expanding the crew.

Is Rorie Giant Bomb's huckleberry?

#34 Posted by DharmaBum (1049 posts) -

Well done, Rorie. I still have Screened-sized hole in my heart that needs filling.

God I hope not.

#36 Posted by Xbox420 (125 posts) -

Rorie deserves better!

#37 Posted by Wrect (317 posts) -

I enjoy the Matt Rorie.

#38 Edited by hanktherapper (383 posts) -

He also wrote the Guild Wars 2 guide for them a few months ago.

#39 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5152 posts) -

Now that Rorie is doing game reviews I think a certain website about video games should hire him.

Absolute genius.

I for one enjoyed Fear Gauntlet, especially Condemned, immensely.

#41 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -

Glad to see he is back in the game! Still, Rorie should totally come to Giantbomb. Hopefully someday....

#42 Posted by probablytuna (3806 posts) -

Woo glad to hear Rorie's back in the game.

Because the economy.

There are a ton of great game writers out of work and it is much cheaper to contract them on a freelance basis than employ full time. Unless it is Polygon then nobody is hiring.

If GB is smart they will not be pressing for new staff, they should be lobbying for a freelance budget or interns. Much more likely to get that.

I doubt it's as simple as Jeff saying, "No, don't hire him." They aren't in direct control of everything GB does anymore.

#45 Posted by Daiphyer (1350 posts) -

RORIE OR RIOT

#46 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (1735 posts) -

As so many here ... I wish they could just hire him. I never visited the-website-we-dont-mention-anymore, but I really liked Rorie.

#47 Posted by hwy_61 (943 posts) -

I'm really disappointed with the lack of puppies in this review.

Is it? I have no idea either way, I'm just curious because Rorie got fuuuuuuuucked.

Huh? Who are we talking about here? The bomb crew? If so, nuh uh!
