Dave, you're definitely going to be a big loss as a personality as well as a designer. You need to visit more often than not.

#852 Posted by Jayxeno (40 posts) -

Take care of your family Dave :)

Hate to see you go but it's good you're not going far.


#853 Edited by GrimFandango9 (62 posts) -

Wish you the best of luck for the future. You've helped to make Giant Bomb one hell of a website!

#854 Edited by Terranova (581 posts) -

Admit it Dave It was loosing the Blade Runner files which was the real reason.. in all seriousness I wish you well in what ever you do next, It's been awesome watching and listening to all the great stuff you have done on GB over the years and to know you will still be making appearances from time to time is great news, I wish you and your family well and thanks for everything duder.

But we got Rorie back! And I am okay with that! :D

Good luck Dave!

Will and Norm moved to new york? Where can i find out about this?

No, they're still in California. Tested and screened were bought by BermanBraun while CBS bought GB/CV.

You will be missed...your reasons for leaving are understandable, and I wish you the best with your family.

Also, Glad to see Rorie is back!

So long, duder :'(

Dave, you are my favorite part of the bombcrew and I am sad to see you go. At the same time I am so happy for your child and the new part of your life you are embarking on. I look forward to you making guest appearances around the site.

#860 Posted by IanYarborough (149 posts) -

What a Faustian bargain. To get back @rorie, we lose @snide. Truly the definition of bittersweet. Dave, congratulations on your beautiful daughter, I couldn't be more happy for you and your wife. You were truly one of my favorite things about this site. I hate to see you go, but am pleased that you go on your own terms and in such wonderful circumstances. I'll hold you to that promise to show up in QL's and podcasts.

#861 Edited by KingHippp0 (113 posts) -

I'll miss you @snide, we chatted on the big red phone once about comic books. Thanks for everything!

#862 Posted by RampantThrust (6 posts) -

Dave, really sorry to hear you are leaving, but glad that you are doing it for the most positive reasons. Thanks for all the joy you have brought over the last few years. Looking forward to seeing you show up in regular guest appearances and glad it is Rorie who is kind of taking on your role. Take it easy.

How did I only see this now!!!!!!! This is mind blowing, exciting and depressing at the same time...... Good luck and thank you for everything that youve done for this site.

#865 Edited by Zleunamme (647 posts) -

@snide Thanks for everything you have done. You helped make the site awesome and it's sad to see you go. I wish you the best of luck in the future. I look forward to any guest appearances you make on Giant Bomb, take care.

Then we find out a few months from now that Dave is working at Berman Braun with Coonce. . . COLLUSION!!!

Holy crap, I go on vacation for 4 days and the entire internet changes? Good luck Dave, your quicklooks are still my favourite.

All the best Dave! Enjoy your time off!

Ps Matt Rorie is awesome

#871 Posted by tomgun (5 posts) -

Congrats dave, and thanks for being part of the best website on the whole World Wide Web! Being a dad rocks, just had a little girl 4 weeks ago, don't even mind having less time for gaming! Enjoy

Tears are being shed. Both of sadness, and of happiness. It is sad to see you leave, but I can't help feeling a whole fucking lot happy for you being with your kid.

Thank you for GiantBomb.com. Thank you for the absolutely hilarious flight-simulator segments. Thank you for the quick-looks. Thank you for... being alive with us, sharing your humor, thoughts, and advices with the rest of us.

I wish you, your girlfriend/wife and your kid the very best.

#875 Edited by Oombalan (79 posts) -

Just thought I'd add to the myriad of people wishing you well and thanking you for making this website fucking awesome, enjoy being a dad!

#876 Posted by Cretaceous_Bob (501 posts) -

Holy fuck. We'll miss you shittons, Dave.

#877 Posted by XenoNick (1390 posts) -

Best of luck Dave. You shall be missed a great deal. You are a legend among men.

#878 Posted by Dick_Mohawk (375 posts) -

Dave, to me you were as much GiantBomb as much as Jeff so seeing you go...it's really tough. But, you are a dad now and priorities change so I can understand.

You will be missed, actually you'll be missed a whole fucking bunch.

I could just wish you well (and I do), but more importantly, Be Happy!

You're the man Dave. Take care as I know you will.

oh man...so sad about this. But understandable

#886 Edited by development (2003 posts) -

Huge bummer. I really wouldn't have expected this. Hope to see you on future features or live events. Blade Runner, EVE Online, and other PC games have suffered a great wound by this news.

Love the new site, liked the old one, and hope the next thing you do is just as great.

I'm sad to see you leave, but I wish you and your family the best onward! And we shall all welcome the puppy king back with open arms, he's been missed (a bit more physically by Ryan I'd imagine).

#889 Posted by Griffinmills (133 posts) -

Will miss you.

#891 Posted by HeghmohQib (183 posts) -

Oh man, I hit play on Boyz II Men while I was reading. Went from "This is a bummer" sad to "All my friends and family just died" sad, instantly.

Curse You B2M and Your Histrionically Smooth Acapella!

#892 Edited by MrNood1e (85 posts) -

Man, this is a real bummer. You'll be missed a lot, Dave. Thanks for everything you've done for GB and for us! Good luck with everything in the future. And we better see you around here often!

#894 Edited by Connelo (130 posts) -

Damnit, i listened to the song. I thought it was going to be funny, but it actually made me even sadder D: Cannot be more stoked about Rorie coming back though.

#895 Edited by DiGiTaL_SiN (1789 posts) -

It's so sad to see you leave!~ You will be sorely, sorely missed Dave, and Good Luck, have Batman! #GBFlightClub #RandomPCGame #Fungineer

Just realized that this means we probably won't see Karen again on the show. :'-(

#896 Posted by Devil240Z (3251 posts) -

This is not the price I expected to pay to get Rorie back...

#897 Posted by avantegardener (1107 posts) -

Just found out! You will be missed.

#898 Edited by toots (428 posts) -

its like the end of cowboy bebop or something.

all the best on fatherhood and whatever is next! Please come back for random pc games from time to time. You are already missed!

going to play some stronghold and freespace in your honor

#899 Posted by AllThatBacon (511 posts) -

Well cripes! Your presence will definitely be missed, Dave. I always loved your love of obscure (PC) games and random quips about Star Trek.

Best of luck with whatever the future holds for ya, duder.

Goodbye Dave, Hope to see you again in the middle of quickloocks, endurance runs and many many more :)
