IGN released the following statement.

"Suck it Giant Bomb!"

Full video can be seen below (quote is from the last ten seconds).

I thought It was funny to see them shoot back after Jeff making fun of IGN reviews in the NHL quick look. I thought I would share it :)

Now for a question as to not make this youtube spam:

Do you like website crossover?

For me personally one of the things I used to love about Whiskey Media was how it was one giant crossover. And you would see people come out in stuff for each others sites. I personally do like seeing some guests from different sites every once in a while as they help breath some new air into the usual content. I remember a while back Brad Shoemaker was on TalkRadar to discuss the inFamous/Prototypes fan bitching in which Brad was like "yo dawg I created a website and I hired some of the old guys from gamespot to work for me like Jeff Gerstman. Also the X-Box 360 is the best console ever!" or something like that :P. It was weird to hear Brad talk about videogames outside of the comfort zone of his own podcast. Then there are the e3 podcasts that Giant Bomb does, as well as the other guests that have appeared on the bombcast like Pachter or Adam Sessler. Would you like to see more of these or do you think one or two crossovers a year during big events is more then plenty?

I think it's an abbreviation of the Adventure Island protagonist's name.

I actualy laughed at that, well played. Although it could just have been Seth Killian's incredibly high pitched laugh that did it.

What did Jeff say in the NHL quick look?

That guy from IGN isn't funny. But the thinks he is. That's annoying.

Edit: To clarify, that is independently from this topic. I am not taking this whole thing seriously. In fact, what he said about Giant Bomb was the funniest thing in the whole video. The rest is an unnatural, seemingly scripted conversation entirely lacking in humor. Most IGN videos seem to be like this. I just don't care for the video content of that website in general.

They are afraid! This is a sign of weakness! We must finish them off!

they were talking about how all of the NHL teams had scores higher than 4 stars, and jeff said "it's like IGN reviews in here"

#11 Posted by DarthOrange (3932 posts) -

@MattyFTM: @NickL: I added the link, he was saying how the shitty NHL team scores were like IGN scores.

It was an off hand comment about IGN's reviews sucking.

#14 Posted by notdavid (845 posts) -

They've had Greg on the Bombcast before, so it's all in good fun.

It's an ad site for games, usually just check out the latest in flash-ad tech. I think they sometimes have links to reviews and videos made by fans.

I just hope no one is actually taking this stuff seriously.

#17 Posted by Wong_Fei_Hung (634 posts) -

I stopped visiting that site after I saw their God Hand review...

#18 Edited by Phatmac (5731 posts) -

You guys do realize that Greg was on the E3 Bombcast this year right? It's all in good fun.

Of course someone is taking it seriously, this is the internet.

Haha. Greg is actually pretty funny.

#21 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

IGN is shit. I've felt that way ever since their ME3 immaturity

#22 Posted by The_Nubster (2416 posts) -

There's a lot of mean things being said about IGN in here. There's a time and a place for that, but really, calm down. It's a joke, folks.

and here come the people taking it seriously

I am not asshole. I genuinely don't think there are many (or any) people at IGN that have ever even made me chuckle.

I am not even taking this seriously.

But yeah go ahead, preemptively judge, be an internet hero. You're so cool.

#26 Posted by ZombiePie (5823 posts) -

If this were actually serious it's highly doubtful that Jeff would have gone on Greg Miller's video show months back and wished Greg well in his cancer treatment on Twitter. Anyways Greg's interview of Jeff was actually really good stuff:

He looked like a total douchebag while doing it. But yes, thats the one

@TheHumanDove: that just makes it even better to me( and i think he said somewhere later on he did it like that as a joke to make people angry ex:the whole walking outside with sunglasses on bit)

So sad that so many people here apparently haven't watched the NHL QuickLook. It's Jeff and Vinny playing a sport they know nothing about people. Required reading.

... ... is that still video pic Greg Miller? This takes me all the way back to kindergarten when I loved Michael Jackson and my showed a pic of the cover to Bad and I was taken aback and shocked and said, "Michael Jackson is a girl?!?!?" If that's Greg, he looks like Pat from the old SNL skits.

First I find out the Jon Davison looks like a hippie and not Daniel Craig, them that Ryan Scott has a goatee and doesn't look even 10% as nerdy as he sounds, and now Greg Miller looks like Pat. My gaming podcast world is crumbling around me.

That is funny haha! Glad shots are being fired!

#42 Posted by Spoonman671 (4874 posts) -

I heard that IGN is evil and they're actually responsible for Greg's cancer.  Yeah, let's go with that, internet.  I want this to spread around.  IGN intentionally gives its employees cancer.  I'm a reliable source.

#43 Posted by WMWA (1162 posts) -

I really wish people didn't rag on other sites so hard. There's a lot of shittiness at every site, this one just has such a small staff that there isnt. I really like a lot of IGN employees (Greg Miller, Brian Altano, Anthony Gallegos etc..) and sites like Kotaku are putting out LOT of top notch stuff these days. Kirk Hamilton, Jason Schreier, Totillo and co. are consistenly putting out great stuff. The larger the site, the more broadly you have to appeal and the more people there are. Inviting more scrutiny and more chances for bullshit to come up. Idk, I just think people dont give these places a fair shake

Vinny first noticed that all the scores for all the teams started from 4/5 stars and higher. So Jeff then took that comment and said something like that's how IGN rates games, or something like that.
