So does that mean we could see an addition to the GB staff?  Meh.... where else would he go?

#3 Posted by Emandudeguyperson (2502 posts) -

Well, I suppose that sucks... 
 
That's all I got.

#4 Posted by Zajtalan (1163 posts) -

that would be cool if he joined

#5 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

Dude, that wouldn't be a bad idea, he could do the PC quick looks XD

#6 Posted by SmasheControllers (2544 posts) -

Hope he comes to GB, more PC nerds would be nice.

#7 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6385 posts) -

Jason Ocampo is awesome, I wouldnt mind an addition to giantbomb, but something wouldnt feel right.
#8 Posted by Teptom (2047 posts) -

It would be perfect timing if he did join now.

#9 Posted by Kohe321 (3522 posts) -

His enthusiasm for games he likes is unmatched.

#10 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

Anyone got a link to something explaining why he left IGN? Fairly sure if Giant Bomb needed too or could afford too hire a PC centric reviewer and enthusiast then this would be the man to pick. His coverage of PC gaming has been somewhat brilliant and stands out in a crowd of what feels like increasingly console-specific video game journalists.

#11 Posted by CowMuffins (1760 posts) -

I don't like his voice. Am I the only one? He seems knowledgeable though.

#12 Edited by skyline7284 (502 posts) -

It was in the Command Prompt Podcast Episode 59..

He's also no longer on the staff list:

They didn't talk about why they just said "Jason Ocampo has left IGN"

#13 Edited by Delta_Ass (3248 posts) -

He'd definitely make the perfect PC specialist for GB.
 
I think he'd even out-PC Dave.

#14 Posted by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

His pc reviews are very good, I don't know why he would quit ign though. I meant it's probally the biggest gaming site and the place to work at.

#15 Posted by KamasamaK (2407 posts) -

I heard this on Command Prompt yesterday, but obviously no details were given. He could have already found a better job for all we know. Or if he was let go, that would be unfortunate and a bit weird since he was the EIC of the team.

#16 Posted by goodwood (600 posts) -

maybe he got caught masterbating during work....which by the way should be legal.

#17 Posted by Smarter_Martyr (591 posts) -
@skyline7284: I've yet to hear the latest episode. Does he mention anything?
#18 Posted by CoolDrMoney (1978 posts) -

Good, IGN sucks. Ocampo is the man, even though he may get a little over zealous about the games he likes. I'd love to see him join GB, though it's highly unlikely. Hope he's off to a better job.

#19 Posted by skyline7284 (502 posts) -
@Smarter_Martyr: He's not even in it.  I really like Steve, but to be honest i can't stand the other two.  Jason and Steve were the reasons i listened...
#20 Posted by Weltal (2272 posts) -

Noooo! I wonder if he'll let TRL call him up for his impressions still?

#21 Edited by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

giantbomb can't afford more people

#22 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

I don't think Giant Bomb can afford to hire him, but it would be really cool if they did.

#23 Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan (1478 posts) -

Well you know, GB recently built a PC, Jason left.....
Things are happening for a reason my friends.

#24 Posted by ChickenPants (934 posts) -

I really can't stand that guy.

I don't think his voice is that bad. It's definitely not as bad as Greg Kasavin. That guy was barely able to form sentences sometimes.
#26 Posted by KamasamaK (2407 posts) -

Regarding my last comment, I now remember Steve saying that Jason and Staci were no longer with IGN. At least two people leaving says to me that maybe he didn't quit.

#27 Posted by CitizenKane (10501 posts) -

Is Jason O comes to Giant Bomb to provide the PC coverage GB wants to do more of, my universe would explode.

It's all making sense now!
#30 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

They said they are not going to hire every fired, layed off or game journalists who quit. While it would be really cool, I doubt it.
 
Hope he finds good work.

Exactly.  You guys can't really think that he will really end up at Giant Bomb...
#32 Posted by mordukai (7129 posts) -

Jeff needs to pick up the phone and give Jason a Ring-A Ding-Ding.

#33 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

He's gone from PC IGN? Well, there goes my interest in that subsection of the site. That's the only reason I liked it! Oh well, I hope he goes to do bigger and better things.....and guest on the Bombcast.

#34 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

Jason Ocampo is one of  the best PC reviewers in the business. He's certainly got a passion for the PC, he's right up there for picks to join the GB team. Especialy because at this point I've suddenly become very interested in PC news and games.
 
Though it's unlikely he'd be able to join the GB team I hope he finds other satisfying work soon.

#35 Posted by heavymtlhead (219 posts) -

he probably got fired for doing awful impressions

We can still hope, cant we?
#37 Posted by MEBs (188 posts) -

  I wish him the best. I really like Jason's review style.

My universe would also explode! Except I cant see Ocampo coming to Giantbomb, hes a bit more serious in nature I guess? A bit older too. (Im not sure what this says about Giantbomb.)

Dude, yeah. What are you talking about? Greg Kasavin was in no way annoying. The dude is a legend.

Dude wrote good reviews, but you honestly never noticed him stuttering?
#42 Posted by MattyFTM (14329 posts) -

While it would be awesome to see him come to GB, I suspect we're going to have to keep dreaming. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see him guest on the bombcast a couple of times while he is still out of a job (that's assuming he is still out of a job, for all we know he could have left because he had another, better job already lined up)

Of course, but that's just nerves. It's in no way annoying. Plus a fact, saying someone is annoying for stuttering is pretty weak, man.
#44 Edited by MachoFantastico (4480 posts) -

Always liked  Jason Ocampo, his PC reviews were especially well written and he understood the whole point of PC gaming unlike like some reviewers at IGN. 
 
Hope he goes to someplace where his talent his appreciated.

I never said he was annoying for stuttering.
#47 Posted by sdauz (430 posts) -

yeah what the hell happened, was listening to command prompt and no Ocampo, what the hell?

Well that was the implication! You said you found him annoying, I said he is in no way annoying, and then you said did I not notice him stuttering, what was your point exactly?

No, I never said I found him annoying. I said he was a worse speaker then Jason Ocampo and that he "was barely able to form sentences sometimes."
#50 Posted by Agent47CSim2 (1085 posts) -

He could be on the GB PAX panal.
