As it was just announced a few minutes ago - Drew's last day in GBs office will be on the 3rd of March 2017.

If anything, he's been the persona which I most shared interests with - flight/mil sims and what not and undoubtedly he has made a huge impact for this website.

Not to mention him covering PRBF2 insipired me to try that game which changed my life for the better with me finding so many friends because of that game.

EDIT: How could I forget? Drew and Dan talking about meditation has also made my life better! That article you wrote for begginers is such a great point to jump off into meditating!

Gonna miss having you around, Drew. From hearing you in the background in the early days, to you being a full on cast member in the latter days.

Giant Bomb isn't going to be the same without you.

I always figured you'd move on from video games coverage at some point. As nerdy as it sounds, your technical expertise/coverage behind the camera was something that I enjoyed just as much as the game stuff. But most of all, I want to thank you, Drew, for the 24 hour streams you've done over the years, It's some of the best content on here.

Stay a friend of the site!

kinda shocking to me that another member leaves, before we even hear anything about a new hireling after dan changes coasts.

I'm heartbroken to see Drew go, but whatever he's doing next must be something special if it's pulling him away from Giant Bomb.

Best of luck, Drew. <3

Drew has been a part of Giant Bomb as far back as I can remember. Way back during Whiskey Media in the basement. Back when Giant Bomb took interns ... still can't believe this is real.

I loved seeing Drew slowly become better and better in front of the camera over the years. He's been a great voice and personality on the site and I'll be sad to see him go. :(

It always hits me hard when a crew member leaves, it's like a friend moving out of town.

Good luck on whatever you're going to do next, Drew. We'll miss you.

I need to lay down for a bit now and try not thinking about this.

This really true and not a joke based on his current internet famousness being too big to stay here?
