Well, I don't have a horse in this race, but I really don't want to see Microsoft mess up by focusing too much on "other" functionality of the next box. You are going to get this system into homes because of games. They will be the trojan horse. Don't be dumb and neglect them during the presentation. Now to wait and see how it all goes down.
You have to remember that Vinny has a family to support, and he is doing so through working at Giant Bomb. Why would he quit? So he could dissolve his income and put his family through financial burden? He has a good thing going here, and I don't think he is any hurry to leave. Everyone needs to calm down.
This has all ways been true with MOBAS. Their community can host some of the worst people. None of what your wrote surprised me. Also it sounds like whoever was saying about their " Family" was just fully insane. Or there is even a chance they where trying to be funny.
That woman has legitimate problems. Like, she seriously needs help. She is completely incorrigible. How can you be incapable of taking any criticism at all? If you are on a show called Kitchen Nightmares you obviously have some problems, so why pretend like everything is fantastic? She is loony.
It's weird to say, but I think I have active disdain for her and I've never even met her. That poor server is probably better off finding a job somewhere else anyway rather than be stuck under that disgusting management.
