Yeah, I probably shouldn't be making this thread, but today I woke up, checked my e-mail and there was one alerting me for the fact that Giant Bomb Premium was live, like 6 hours ago. What happened? What was it?

Jeff resigned. He's moving to Rome. They're getting a guy from Gamespot to fill his spot.

So nothing happened?

In an unanticipated move CBS was bought by AnimeVice so someone would pay attention to it.

@DeF: 7 hours ago would be 9PM their time. It's 4AM over there right now.

Talking to GIantBomb users is like talking to one of my friends; you just don't know when they're fucking around.

#14 Posted by fetchfox (1360 posts) -

@colinjw: Looks about right. No but seriously guys, what happened?

Guys, what is actually going on?

#17 Posted by Hector (3378 posts) -

I didn't receive any email...I don't think I ever get an email about LIVE shows or whatever...

#18 Posted by Cootsnoop (43 posts) -

I just want to be part of the noise

#19 Posted by EuanDewar (5098 posts) -

Will Smith most certainly did a live show like 6 hours ago, no idea why Giant Bomb would alert you of that though.

I support you in your quest for knowledge.

What? *checks email* All I got was question on Formspring. From Formspring. Can you guys name anything that makes you feel more like shit than that?

Actually no, I can't think of anything shittier than that. And I'm not being ironic.

Here's the proof of my e-mail alert and that I am not crazy:

Forget the obviously-not-English part. This is the alert I get every time they start a Premium live stream.

I don't have any factual info but I have A LOT of opinions!

why does proof exonerate you from being crazy? :D

Who knows.  Maybe they were testing something?  Or maybe it was just a mixup with justin.tv.  Nothing happened so you didn't miss anything.

#26 Posted by Branthog (5596 posts) -

Since the rest of us didn't get any sort of notice, I'd suggest someone is phishing you.

They fired him because he plans to give Star Wars Kinect 8.8 out of 5 stars.

I got that email, too. OP is not crazy.

#33 Posted by Ramone (2976 posts) -

They finally launched the Giant Bomb space shuttle. It's basically a giant likeness of Jeff riding luchadeer.

Brad is leaving Giantbomb for a stint on Broadway. Jeff has decided to go make games with Gameloft and Vinny is finally going to release his self help video series, expect a Kickstarter soon.

#39 Posted by Milkman (17311 posts) -

Man, I've been there.

Waking up after a crazy night, no idea where you are, a strange women in bed with you and an e-mail from Justin.TV about a Giant Bomb premium stream. Ah, college.

#40 Posted by fetchfox (1360 posts) -

@SeriouslyNow: Hm, sounds plausible.

#41 Posted by Grillbar (1903 posts) -

no freaking idea

#42 Posted by habster3 (3600 posts) -

You probably have your settings set so that you receive email notifications regarding live Giant Bomb shows

Normally you don't get email notifications. I believe you have to follow the channel and tell it to email you in your account settings. How many of us even have an account, let alone do either of those things?
