i don't know man, for about the past 2 years Giantbomb has been my go-to site for video game news and shenanigans and while growth here is inevitable i'm just preying that it doesn't lose that kinda "dudes hangin out in the basement effin' around writing about video games" feel that it has, that has become such a big part (for me anyways) of their personality.  
i fucking love Giantbomb and i'm happy for them and i want them to be successful and they deserve to be successful, i just hope this all works out for the best, for everybody

The show floor videos from E3 are some of my favourite segments from GB, so please do nice lengthy ones :D

As I said in a random thread, one of my favourite destructoid editors is now also writing for one of my favourite video game websites? Hopefully Brad Nicholson will guest on a few bombcasts and bring the same energy he showed on previous Podtoids.

Welcome aboard fellas! 
Here's hoping for more "Video Thing" from the 4 duders downstairs.

Oh oh, I foresee no more Dave & Mike Quick Looks if the move is done.
Is this true? Will we loose our source of hilarity and PC Quick Looks?! Nooooooo!!!

This is awesome news! Giant Bomb is easily my favourite website, let alone games website. What I always felt was needed was "moar" and now that is being delivered :) Cant wait.

Man! I'm so happy Brad Nicholson's joining the Giantbomb crew, That guy was such a laugh to listen to on Podtoid, hope he comes on the Bombcast...
As to Matt Bodega. I hate you so much! I also love this and respect him just as equally, ha ha. Matt Bodega, you must deserve it if the GiantBomb guys want you on board.
I want to work for Giantbomb and I'm jealous as fuck! Ah well. I have my own website to think about. :-)

You can expect to see more live things like that from us here in the basement, along with more reviews and Quick Looks, the eventual return of T.A.N.G., and "wacky fun."
Best news I have heard in a long while. The videos are why I keep coming back to the site, hoping for QLs and ERs. And TNT has been fun to watch. Here's hoping for tons more.

Awesomeness! Good to see Giant Bomb blowing up. Ugh. 
I'd recommend a re-do of the front page though, if you're having more video and news content I don't think the current layout really works?!

I think they're getting Nicholson so that he can pump them up for summer. That way they can show off their beach bodies. The Nicholson gets me so pumped I could hurt a small child and feel no remorse.

I hope it won't change things up to much. If it does, it'll just be 4chan for me.

Please stay good, Giant Bomb. I'll die there.

Or World of Warcraft. MattBodega can talk about WoW for days. I can just picture it now - Ryan asks him what he's been playing, the words "World of Warcraft" leave his lips and we then have a 5 hour solo from MattBodega talking about WoW. If he gets on the bombcast and even mentions WoW I will hunt him down and kill him.

I hope they just don't spread their work out over too many people. Then you suffer quality for quantity - it always happens.

Remember to kidnap Dave on the way out. GB needs him much more then those Whiskey Media dogs.
Good luck with the new office, hope the moving process is without insident. And if it has incident, I hope someone has a camera nearby.

You need to get Nicholson in some time for the podcast. Dude's hilarious.
Also, everything's true. He can lift anything.
