A new rival has arrived

Hello! Giant Bomb,

How are ya?

I am wounded to know that my beautiful 1up.com is going to die. I was apart of the community for 9 years.

I guess in my life there is instantaneous change about to occur. I am not sure what to think.

I am saddened by leaving 1up.com but I am looking forward to writing in the GiantBomb community.

Thank you all.

Hope you can tell me how things work round these parts.

Hello sir, despite what people might tell you being a dick is fine as long as you're creative with your dickishness. Few smart gents around from time to time; but mostly just random people who might randomly say something insightful (or the opposite of course).

Hello! I don't really have any good advices for you, but be yourself and if you don't want your thread to turn into a battlefield, don't talk about sexism in the gaming industry. (Hopefully no one responds to that statement.)

And while your at it I highly recommend that you check out the Persona 4 Endurance Run: http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/endurance-run-persona-4-part-01/2300-219

Welcome aboard.

As for how things work around here you can start by watching the Persona 4 endurance run. I'll see you in 3 days. (Is it longer than 72 hours? I don't remember)

Welcome, dude!

They should just have this video auto-play for all new users. It's a required experience. Also welcome.

It's certainly a much better feeling being the lifeboat for them than being the "I got banned from X site so I'm here" penal colony equivalent we sometimes get.

Welcome duder.

Welcome! Since the Giant Bomb Know Your Meme doesn't appear to have made the site transition, it may be slightly annoying to catch up on what the fuck everyone's talking about. Hang around here for a while and you'll probably pick it up through osmosis anyway.

Also, don't be a dick and all that. Not like the rest of us, anyway.
