I guess this might have been speculated before. Hope so...

#2 Posted by doobie (605 posts) -

yeah. it has already been confirmed that rich and his twin brother mitch will join the GB crew next Wednesday at 4 pm.

#3 Posted by Winternet (8005 posts) -

Well, he was on that company for, what?, almost 5 years. He seems committed to be on the dev side of the industry so it would be natural for him to continue that way.

#4 Posted by Elohym (24 posts) -

You mean Mitch Gallup is going to be there too? Sweet!

#5 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

Probably. Someone has to replace Brad when he leaves.

I think the old GameSpot crew might be cursed or something. They should make a movie about it.

#11 Posted by RedRoach (1176 posts) -

It'd be cool, Rich was always pretty awesome at GS. Although I think he'll continue being a developer.

#12 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

Rich is actually going to star in the reboot of The Ben and Rich Show, coming this fall to CBS.

#13 Posted by DeathbyYeti (742 posts) -

the forum is pretty much fan fiction

as soon as a friend or former co worker of the guys on Giant Bomb seems in trouble or out of a job, everyone makes a post asking if they will be joining the site

#14 Posted by CornBREDX (4793 posts) -

Hey you know that guy that lost his job that reviewed games that one time? Is he going to be hired by Giantbomb now?

I know no one would ever ask that, you guys, I'm the first. Cus they all want to work for Giantbomb.

That's how it works, right? Your friend loses his job you just give him one?

Budget? Whats that? Phhfft

Only if he wants to will he, but just as Rorie has moved on from his old Gamespot job Rich has moved his career away from the content producing he did at Gamespot so to speak as if it is inevitability is just wasted breath.

#16 Posted by wjb (1637 posts) -

No, it would be a cold day in hell for Rich if he ever works for a place that uses profanity regularly and sits down while podcasting.

#17 Posted by Milkman (16519 posts) -
@CornBREDX: For the record, Rich never even reviewed games at GameSpot.  
 
But yeah, these threads are incredibly dumb.

@Milkman: Ya, I know. The joke still plays =P

if they didn't hire rorie then I don't see why they would hire Gallup instead

#22 Posted by Elyk247 (366 posts) -

Who knows? Stranger things have happened.

They really should hire Rorie. :(

Regardless of if he joins GB or just turns up as one of their unemployed bombcast guests that they like getting in, hopefully Rich has got something lined up - sucks to have something like that happen to a nice guy like him.

#25 Posted by captain_clayman (3318 posts) -

can we...stop with these threads?

#26 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I hear Tricky needs someone to take of that mane of his.

#27 Posted by James_ex_machina (905 posts) -

Rich seemed to have a good 'tude at PAX. Just wondering how much he knew then. When the company I work for was up for sale and struggling to make payroll it was tough going in each day.

#28 Posted by Vinny_Says (5685 posts) -

I hope they hire Rich, Rorie, Karie, Greg and Miguel back and things wil go back to normal.

#29 Posted by alternate (2682 posts) -

He has a life and a family on the east coast. I imagine a dev job out there will be first choice.

#30 Posted by AlexanderSheen (4929 posts) -

No...

#31 Posted by Stonyman65 (2591 posts) -

Damn, all we need now is Alex back in SF, Rorie over to Giant Bomb, and Carrie back from EA..

#32 Posted by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

Rich is exactly what Giantbomb needs.

COMPLETE THE CYCLE AND REUNITE THE GAMESPOTTERS!

I gave you a slow clap.

This is starting to sound more and more like a twisted version of fantasy football, fantasy video game journalism!

Yea.

Incorrect. Brad's not leaving, he's moving in to Rich's eyebrow.

I think this kind of rampant speculation was all kicked off by the fact that it actually happened with Alex Navarro and Matt Rorie a few years ago.

#39 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1232 posts) -

Doubt it...

#40 Posted by Nightriff (4911 posts) -

No, probably not but hopefully a Bombcast, Sessler got one so should he.

People keep forgetting that Rich got a job at 38 BECAUSE he moved to the East coast, not the other way around.
