nah, i do think we're in the tamer part of the year, but i actually quite like that (or rather my wallet is glad, nothing is really screaming "buy" to me other than watchdogs, and thats not till end of may)

i think part of it too i think is, we're all looking to E3 to get properly excited about this new generation of consoles. to have an idea of where things are going. and what big big games to get excited for.

and as for ryan's death, you're probably like the first person to even mention that to them since,

I doubt that,

did anyone else mention it directly to them? obviously friends and family, but im more talking users like us,to me he was kind of the first person to directly do it.

in a post ryan world, this panel super renewed my faith in GB to still be about fun.

also, one of the guys that asked a question to the staff (taking about the dark times he went through) sounded like he was crying? no disrespect to the guy, as i absolutely get it. but more power to him that he got up and told the staff that.

That was me, I wasn't crying, but for some fucking reason I had an anxiety attack the moment the dude in the blue shirt in front of me said "all yours" and was fighting to control it while asking my question(one person described it as me sounding like the G-Man). Anxiety attacks fucking suck. My sister was murdered abroad shortly before the formation of GB and her death was covered up, and I was distraught, borderline suicidal for a long time. GB's content kept me laughing and upbeat in those darkest of days until I could get help, so I've always kept up with GB since. Ryan dying probably hit me harder than normal because of that, too, and Patrick speaking about his dad at the panel on Friday inspired me to bring up the topic. I have a very loud voice, like, my voice fucking CARRIES to the point that people outside can hear my yelling from the inside of the facility I work at away from any windows, so I tone it down to a whisper for microphones and such. That combined with the anxiety didn't go well. Looks like what I meant to say got through to most folks though, although some people thought I was dragging out Ryan's death to bring the panel down??? I wasn't even thinking of Ryan's death when I asked the question, though I did realize it could be misinterpreted that way after and added the "uplifting" bit.

im no stranger to anxiety attacks, end of the day you still got up and told those guys everything on how you felt, there's no shame in doing that. seemed like it did really resonate with especially the staff though with what you said.

and as for ryan's death, you're probably like the first person to even mention that to them since, that's probably why it was first interpreted as a "Negative", his death really hit us all like a ton of bricks. so for someone to even mention that topic probably took everyone by surprise.

Geniune condolences about what happened to your sister , and no bullshit, thats great that GB kept you going.

And hey, that DLC was some of the best content in a game last generation.

you and the OP are the best.

@mrfluke: Yeah I'd be very surprised (and disappointed) if they hired a big name for the site. At this point I'm much more interested in getting some new blood onto the scene.

i mean it would depend at least for me which big name they do get, like i dunno about garnet lee personally, but like adam sessler or Mark or John from 8-4 i think would be able to mesh well with the other staff, giant bomb to me lives or dies by the "chemistry" that all the staff have with each other, but i trust these guys to hire the right people.

Really curious to see who the hires will be, i doubt it'ill be jeff green. id love it to fuck if it was.

my bet is its going to be a shock to everyone who they hire, because most of the notable people are already employed i believe.
