I figured this was coming. Patrick strikes me as an ambitious person. Though I have to say, I have a feeling he'll regret leaving Giant Bomb. I personally thought he fit in at Giant Bomb perfectly. I certainly don't agree with his politics, but he always expressed them in a thoughtful and respectful way. Something most hard news pundits fail miserably at. I think Patrick brought an interesting and different personality to Giant Bomb, and that was a very GOOD thing. I think it will be very missed.
I don't like Kotaku. When I think Kotaku, I think snarky, smarmy folks who live inside a metropolitan bubble. I just can't get down with it. I think Patrick will be swimming in a sea of people over there that may be more like him personally, but with less talent, and for that, he will stand out less, and not shine so brightly. I digress though. I do love what he's done here, and I'll miss him. Hopefully GB can replace him with someone similar personality wise. Who that might be, I don't know. Good luck Patrick.
