Gonna miss the hell out of your contributions. I'll follow you to the next thing, but man, GB is not going to be the same.

There was never any doubt in my mind about the GB staff's position, but I'm glad to see it spelled out so there's no question. Just paid to re-up my sub the other day, and was happy to do so, keep up the good work and the good fight. Hopefully enough rational people speaking out can put an end to this mess.
We will miss you for sure, but glad to hear you will still appear from time to time. Congrats on the kid, you've certainly earned the time off.
So, I finished Infinite last night and I think the game is mostly a bummer... the combat is a drag against enemies with too little variety, and the plot feels unfocused. The game does not seem to have a clear take home message, and I hate how parallel universe stories always seem to have to come to a close with a big info dump scene to clear things up. As baby Anna's severed pinkey slow flew across the screen, all I could think was 'Are you fucking kidding me?'...
That's neither here nor there. I had an idea this morning while mulling over bits of the game I haven't decided on, and one area I keep coming back to as potentially really interesting is the stealth bit in Comstock House. I am specifically interested in the Boys of Silence and the Blanks. My thought was, what if all the Blanks being held prisoner there are really the previous 121 Bookers that failed to rescue Elizabeth? They flicker like tears and we never see their faces...
I just got a free Vita with a Sony laptop purchase, so I guess now I have a Vita... I bought the biggest memory card, so hopefully some good downloadables come around. Thinking I'll pick up the MGS:HD collection and try to play MGS2 and 3 the whole way through for the first time. Then to wait for a Castlevania game of some sort, and to check if I can put a digital copy of the PSP Metal Slug collection on there. That's pretty much all I need. Then again, I purchased a $129.99 DSiXL solely to play the Aliens game and Castlevania games, so I probably have low standards.
I've been using HTML5 since the radio show to see what its deal was, and I don't think I'll be switching back. I tried the regular player today and only just noticed the difference, and it seemed slower and less friendly to use than the previous. Not being able to skip ahead is definitely a big problem, too, but it also seemed to buffer really slowly.
Cautiously optimistic as well, but I would like to hear some concrete details on what premium content looks like moving forward. I was thrilled to be able to contribute to Whiskey for things like Jar Time and Bricked, but, frankly, nothing on Gamespot impresses or interests me like Giantbomb does, and I am not keen to give them money. Giving Whiskey money for things I enjoyed across multiple sites made sense, but if premium content is not a major part of Giantbomb under Gamespot moving forward, paying for a lot of things I don't want or need does not make as much sense.
