Just want to take the time on my favourite puppy-related subforum here on GB and say holy shit I'm so glad Dave and the crew are bringing Rorie in.

Rorie - welcome back duder, we've missed you, and please keep hatin' on Macs. THEY AIN'T NO GAME MACHINES.

Looking forward to your QLs my man.

Please @rorie, never compromise with those damn Apple machines. Who else can I look up to in my irrational hatred towards a brand?

I secretly have an iPhone and enjoy it oh god.

Also looking forward to the dynamics of a Rorie/Patrick QL.. the PC vet and the PC greenthumb.. learnin' & laughin'.

........YYEEESSSSSS!

Two VERY good perspectives on it all.

And in an odd twist of fate, Rorie will reveal that the dark year away has made him the most cynical of them all.

"PS4? pshh... Two puppies out of five, -max-. I can run at least six real time puppies on my PC right now."

Does this mean that Rorie is officially ineligible for 2013's Golden Duder Award competition?

HOLY SHIT! I just found out about this through Jeff's tumblr and got super excited! But then I heard about Dave leaving and got super sad, but then I heard he has a new child, which is awesome! It's a freaking rollercoaster over here, man!

@xtrememuffinman: I have to say that the Macbook Air the IT guys gave me is a slick little piece of hardware, even if I scoff at the 120 gb hard drive in this thing. I feel like someone walked up to me and took a baseball bat to my kneecap every time I use the mac OSX, though. If I can't get some Windows on here pretty soon I'm liable to just spring for a Win7 license myself and throw it on there. If I do that I'll have to find some way to scrub the apple logo off the cover of the screen thingy. Maybe I'll throw a Screened logo sticker on there to obscure the symbol of the anti-oppressor.

I think Rorie's blog post also serves the purpose of welcoming him back. No need for other threads. Also

That is right. You win some and you lose some.

We should welcome Rorie back the only way the GB community knows how.... PHOTOSHOP THREAD!

#13 Posted by Master_Funk (728 posts) -

So happy rorie is finally back with GB/CV . As sad as I am that Dave has left, I know rorie will fill the void eventually. Also hope he takes more part in premium videos than Dave did, specifically Random PC game.

I love so much of this post it's hard to put into words

With Dave now eligible, that competition is a one horse race.

This is so awesome guys. It was almost inevitable that this would happen, but that doesn't make this any less great to hear.

It's not going anywhere. Mat is a huge PC guy and will just be taking Dave's place. When that will happen is another thing, but people often forget that Mat is a huge old school PC game guy.

I would like to say you will be missed Dave, but you have been so busy with behind the scenes stuff for so long that it's been a long time since we seen ya in anything. In fact now that you are going to be stopping by on your own unemployed free time we will probably end up getting to see more of ya then when you were working on the site. Best of luck being a Dad and finding a job when you need it.

The Cricket!

So, is it now ok for me to start posting pictures of my puppy, and asking Rorie to rate it? It would have seemed somehow more weird before.

I think we're looking at a Dave vs. Brad Muir final.

(Also, I had to google his name to see how to spell it. I had spelled it Miur and saw that it's actually Muir when I clicked on his twitter; then I realized that MrMooEar is (possibly) not just some random name but actually a phonetic to help remember how to spell his name? My fucking mind just got shattered)

So what are Rorie's thoughts on flight sims?

#27 Posted by Brodehouse (9586 posts) -

More Ramblin' Rories pls.

rory pls

#28 Posted by Nightriff (4915 posts) -

I like Rorie but I wouldn't trade him for Dave which is essentially what has happened.....very mixed feelings right now

#29 Posted by Grilledcheez (3943 posts) -

He is the best possible replacement!

#30 Edited by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

This is the greatest news, all the Screened staffers are back. I now demand a Rorie solo-cast about movies, occasionally featuring Alex. I would re-up my subscription for that! listening to the old episodes over again has just made me so numb. I need my fresh fix!

@rorie: A lot of our wishes have come true today. I would have sworn just days ago that this day would never happen despite how we all really wanted it to. It sucks that Dave has to go, but I'm happy he's been replaced with you. Hopefully you get to stick around this time and not get dicked around.

Anyways, glad you're officially a part of Giant Bomb and not a sister site or anything like that. I look forward to whatever you contribute.

#35 Posted by DarthOrange (3851 posts) -

Welcome, welcome @rorie!

You are an awesome dude even if you never answered my question. :P

#36 Posted by Humanity (8810 posts) -

Can't wait to see Rorie sit in on his first Quick Look.

At the same time, no more Random PC game with Dave is literally breaking my heart in half.

And they are sitting on a literal goldmine of PC gaming spanning decades from that one Mailbag. This rabbithole Patrick is going down could be his thing, at least till the holiday next gen releases.

I wouldn't be surprised if Alex and I sit down to talk about some comic book movies this summer.

@funkasaurasrex: I was so, so tired when I recorded that podcast. I regret nothing, though.

@daveyo520: Amazing!

@alwaysbeclothing: It took me so long to learn that the beard is not a look for me.

@jams: Well, Dave was leaving regardless of whether I was hired, unfortunately. Glad to make a minor positive out of a negative. I sure wish he was around.

Don't undersell yourself. There's nobody better to join Giant Bomb. You're a major positive out of a negative.
