@zeik: Does that mean when Ziff Davis goes under, he'll start working for Gamespot?

@instinct666: Patrick works for Kotaku, which is part of Gawker. Gawker filed for bankruptcy after the Hulk Hogan lawsuit & Ziff Davis plans to buy it.

Also worth noting that Patrick worked for 1UP.com a long time ago, which was owned by Ziff Davis. Ziff sold it off and pretty much caused that entire website to die. That's where the "welcome back to the fold" line comes from.

Furthermore, Patrick was a New Editor for 1UP.com, which was started by Ziff Davis as a digital web/video site alongside Electronic Gaming Monthly. Patrick left for MTV in 2008, but he did witness a lot of his friends and former coworkers get jerked around by Ziff Davis.

In 2009, Ziff Davis shuttered EGM and sold 1UP to Hearst Corporation's UGO Networks, which was acquired by IGN Entertainment in 2011. In continued craziness, Ziff Davis acquired IGN Entertainment as a whole in February 2013. However, after the acquisition, Ziff Davis announced that in an effort to concentrate on IGN, it would shut down most of its secondary sites, including 1UP, Gamespy, and UGO. Remaining staff members from 1UP were to be transferred to IGN.

The amount of knowledge Jeff has about vaping leads me to think that either A) he is way too deep into that whole vaping thing or B) he secretly vapes.

I came to Giant Bomb pretty late into the Whiskey Media days by following Patrick.

Before the 2008 bubble burst (and even for a few years after), the EGM/1UP was my personality-gaming obsession. Shout outs to the 1UP Show! RIP

As someone who has been visiting this site for years and years now, I sometimes feel the crew has gotten jaded and lost their edge, or tries too hard to keep cranking out organically funny content. This video had me in stitches and really highlighted that the crew (Jeff in particular) has still got it. God damn that was funny.

I have been waiting for this one to come out and I'm so glad it did. What a way to send this past E3 out. #WEED3 forever.

I just want to say that I'm kinda disappointed that it's WEED3 and not wE3d. That is all.

Disappointed that the gnat story wasn't included in this. One of the funniest segments from WEED3.

I didn't know about the 1UP stuff myself. It explains why Patrick just cupped his head in his hands for a couple moments.

That could have been the entire of the BoGB, frankly. That's a showstopper.

I like imaginging Brad watching various videos of people dying in his own time.

He tries to keep it cool, but every now and then he slips up at the office and shares his wisdom about books bound in human skin.

Well the whole "My parents are dead" bit makes a whole lot more sense now, i guess i missed the setup for that one when i saw it live lmaooo. There were so many good moments in this years coverage, maybe the best in a long time IMO.

So the weed3 joke was all the people playing battlefield kept referencing weed? I mean were they actually doing that on purpose the celebrities? Not having seen many people high - I didn't immediately recognize the guy in the pic was supposed to be high....(I just though he was a very airbrushed male model)

@zaldar: Like 10 seconds before that clip of Jamie Foxx and Zac Effron, they came on to the red carpet coughing and waving their hands. The GB panel didn't seem to notice it while Austin was writing, but....they were totally high

I timestamped it

My goal is to work in "y'all like that Call of Duty?" into at least one conversation per day. Jeff, you're a constant source of inspiration.
