    Seriously. I never would've found Austin's stuff without GB, and I'm so glad that I got to check it out. Thanks, man--good luck, and I am super excited to do what you do next.

    I really enjoyed everything Austin brought to Giant Bomb East in such a short amount of time and hope he does well wherever he ends up.

    So heartbroken. This news is honestly just... devastating to me. I was hoping he would be here for a long, long time. Austin you will be sorely, sorely missed.

    Best of luck!

    I'm not kidding when I say this, but Austin was my favorite addition to the staff this website ever had. I'm heartbroken to see him leave, but wherever he goes I'll be paying close attention. One of the smartest guys in this business and I wish him the best.

    I'm really bummed to hear this! He was such a great addition to GBeast that it'll be weird to not have him around. Best of luck though Austin. Once a Giant Bomb Duder, always a GB Duder! <3

    Well this site is dead, onto the next.

    *Looks at the state of games journalism.*

    Fuck.

    So sincerely, when he first joined I said I wanted to be Austin when I grew up and I still want to and it really sucks that he's leaving to only write on his own blog that I'll bookmark but only check like every six months on bored weekends.

    Thank you for everything Austin. Your insight and empathy has made me think a lot more about what I think about when I play games, and in life in general. Also, you're just a funny and great duder. Can't wait to find out what you're doing next, but you will be missed!
