It's odd. Does it seem like Gamespot is trying really hard to make their editors be the face of the site? It seems so forced compared to the old days in the 2000's. It seems here like they are just trying to force these people down our throats. Creepy.
Why does he keep saying THE Ocarina of Time? What the hell? Is that the official name? I'm sure it isn't the official name.
Also, how much better have these guys gotten on camera, huh?
Over the past summer I was looking for old GS videos and found a post from 2002 on some random forum talking about how the Gamespot guys were starting to do video. People were shocked to see Greg and Jeff's faces and didn't like them on camera at all. It's hilarious in hindsight seeing as GiantBomb is all about video content now.
I'm a day one guy. I stopped browsing Gamespot after they did their Hotspot podcast episode talking about Jeff's departure. Randomly in March 08 I decided to check Ryan or Jeff's Gamespot blog and they linked to the original blog website when it had a total of 3 or 4 podcasts on it.
This was a fantastic article Patrick. Unfortunately, I have a serious problem with organizers deciding when they think a match is fixed or not. Sorry but picking a character in a fighting game that is notoriously under-powered does not instantly mean that a person is throwing the game.Unless they question the players and they subsequently admit to it I don't think this is at all enforceable.
I don't know if I should be sad that he died so soon after his wedding, or happy that he died at what seems to have been one of the happiest moments of his life. I'm glad to hear it was peaceful, but I don't understand the people that keep bringing up people talking about his death as a conspiracy. I really don't get what people are getting at.
Hopefully they continue to stay strong. Take all the time they need to grieve, but when they come back they better continue to keep this site badass and keep it growing to further turn this into the best goddamn game website of all time.
