Tested just tweeted: Massive news today. Can't wait to share it with you guys! Check back around 10am PDT.

Same time as the GB broadcast. I assume it's the same thing. What's happening!?!?!

EDIT: Jeff tweeted, 8:00am: "OK, we're a couple of hours away from giantbomb's Stupendously Massive Announcement. Prepare yourselves (I'm brushin' my teeth!).""

EDIT 2: Gary, 8:09am: "Big testedcom news today. BIG. Strap yourselves in!"

EDIT 3: Alex, 8:10am: "Gird your loins, people. This day's gonna be a bonkers one."

EDIT 4: Alex, 8:55am: "Did I say today was going to be bonkers? Because I meant it's going to be bizonkers. Bananaspants. Totes bizarro. All the way cray-cray."

They are folding all the websites into Animevice

Pancakes are happening.

Gabe N is going to be there to announce Half-Life 3 is being released on 5.12.12 and a full merger with the WM sites. Which in turn funds the WM jumbo jet where they all live John Travolta style and travel the globe doing chilli cook-offs. Yeah, I know I said the last part before. I'm just trying to keep my hopes up.

Maybe new office, possibly new site?

#6 Posted by RenMcKormack (1074 posts) -

My actual guesses are the following

(1) They are moving offices

(2) they are adding a new website or they are making all the sites more integrated instead of all being seperate. Like here is Giantbomb.com /testedTested section instead of tested being a separate website.

The world tour?

#9 Posted by TruthTellah (9468 posts) -

The long-in-production Tested Wiki will be unveiled.

#10 Posted by JustKamToo (724 posts) -

Brad is leaving Giantbomb (I'm sorry I had to say it).

#11 Posted by drag (1206 posts) -

not only were those rumours/reports of a deadly premonition sequel true, it is actually finished and has been released exclusively to giant bomb for a non-stop endurance marathon starting today.

TASTED.COM WILL BE A REALITY

#13 Edited by Kentobi (88 posts) -

@RenMcKormack: I agree. I think closer integration of the sites is warranted and kinda already happening. Dare I say it, the obvious analogy is WWE. When you have guys from one "brand" always on the other show, they're not really branded anymore.

I can only hope this leads to a Will/Norm Invasion angle with Mr. Snider as the authority figure.

Things that it could be:

  • They're moving offices
  • They're becoming independent of Whiskey Media
  • Tested is getting a wiki
  • Giant Bomb and Tested are merging into a new combined site
  • They're hiring a massive number of people
  • They're going on a giant world tour
  • Giant Bomb and Tested are merging with Kotaku or Joystiq
  • They're creating their own TV channel
  • They're going to announce a brand new site.

That'd be pretty cool news.

#16 Posted by Metal_Mills (3046 posts) -

IGN bought Whiskey Media.

#17 Posted by Rerejo28 (135 posts) -

If it's a new site, like many people are speculating, what kind of site do you guys think it will be?

WHY YOU DO

#19 Posted by StrainedEyes (1331 posts) -

Ryan and Brad are going to play through the entirety of Bully in one live stream.

Immediately followed by the sound of hundreds of people cancelling their subscriptions.

They are taking Dave´s house on a tour around the globe! First stop: Antarctica.

That would be the worst news ever.

Better news: Giantbomb and Tested are merging with Kotaku and Gizmodo, and firing all of Kotaku and Gizmodo's staff.

Giantbomb is switching to cover Facebook games only

The most exciting possibility yet!

#27 Posted by Metal_Mills (3046 posts) -

Wait, Pancakes with everybody? It's a new cooking site, featuring all of WM! The hype was the chili day.

#28 Posted by Fallen189 (5052 posts) -

Fucking hell, I'll be at work. I'll have to deal when I get in

#29 Edited by DefAde (265 posts) -

The only 'sensible' suggestion i can think of is....

Dave's much wanted and often speculated WHISKEY MEDIA MEMBERS STREET PARTY

Paaaaaaaarrrrrrrrttttteeeeeeeyyyyyyy

or maybe a more legal compromise - like a mini-PAX style Whiskey event

#30 Posted by Sauson (561 posts) -

Will and Vinny are doing a cooking show.

#31 Posted by ckeats (489 posts) -

First chili and now pancakes? cooking site.

#32 Edited by TruthTellah (9468 posts) -

They finally found the definitive answer to whether burgers are a subset of sandwiches! O____O

#33 Posted by Ehker (235 posts) -

I'm prepared to be outraged.

#34 Posted by lawrence_of_suburbia (30 posts) -

Jeff Green is hosting a new PC centric podcast for WM on which he will constantly forget the date.

#35 Posted by Kentobi (88 posts) -

@rebgav: I think so. Even not from a business level (which I'm sure it makes sense at), it makes sense from our point of view. Why do we we need completely separate forums, when Tested Folks are likely GiantBomb Folks and so on? Why do we need separate video pages on separate sites, when all I want to see is the latest content? It's a great idea, if/when it happens.

#36 Posted by clientkiller (69 posts) -

The optimism in this thread is demoralising. I'm expecting good news!

I don't think its a new website, I'm thinking a crazy new feature like the happy hour.

#37 Posted by zyn (2591 posts) -

Giant Bomb has taken over the world. FREE PANCAKES!

#38 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2730 posts) -

Jeff will start a wrestling site with Steve Austin.

New food site, with durgers for everyone.

#45 Posted by jakob187 (21755 posts) -

Whiskey Media is announcing that they are all quitting on May 15th.

#46 Posted by CaLe (4050 posts) -

I'll be disappointed if they are hyping up a damn food site. Food is boring.

Social event of the year? I heard they will spin it out into a reality show.

#49 Edited by Vager (1654 posts) -

Have they given a reason why they've been at Dave's apartment this week? I think that's related to the announcement.

#50 Posted by 1p (760 posts) -

This is more scary than exciting.
