John's a good guy. If you need proof dig out some of the old 1Up podcasts. He lies to swear and tell it like it is. Working for Gamespot he needs to be a family figure. I doubt Giantbomb will change what they do. They will still be foul mouthed dirty bastards, just the way we like them!
Look. I'm not a massive Game fan. I mostly buy my stuff on amazon. But seriously... Anyone who thinks there will be a brick and mortar "Games" shop in 10 years time is nuts. This is just the beginning of the end. With the popularity of digital downloads and the major consoles pushing full game downloads on their systems (well maybe not so thus gen) but next gen I'm sure the consoles will be. Also used games suck! The makers of those games never see a dime and so allowing company's like this to make profit on the same item many times over.
