I actually found out the site is now up from gamespot!!!!
I can imagine loads of people are going to ditch the forums there and go here instead.

Haha that's awesome - I wonder how the mods there are going to react to that - I didn't frequent the GS forums, do they allow mention of competing sites?

Can I just advise people to not go spamming Gamespot with Giant Bomb threads? The forums on Gamespot have always had a very low caliber of user and I would love it if Giant Bomb could actually keep an average age (or at least mental age) of over 18 for as long as possible. The fact that it doesn't have Game in the title may be enough to keep 13 year old from finding it on google, and that would be fantastic.

Better idea. Charge $10 for the ability to post on the forums. That would be FANTASTIC. See Something Awful for a good example.

Well good luck with keeping that mentality lol.  We already got an official swear thread, 50 gamespot threads, and a bunch of other random stuff.

Completely agreed. I'm thoroughly impressed that everybody here, so far, uses correct grammar. I'd like it to stay that way, and not have a flood of System Wars users.

Eh, I wouldn't go that far in my opinion.
I like this place, but it will never really be a  Gamespot to me. Some parts of the community are already giving me bad impressions.

As long as the layout gets some tweaks and unions added *cough* unions 2.0 I hope ;) *cough* then I am happy to switch my allegence to here, also having other gamespot members here helps.

This site much better, so it deserves it. To me GB is the spiritual successor to the gamespot days of old.

They've stopped locking threads about Giantbomb and have just started deleting them outright.

I think people are ready to try something new, plus many people (including myself) left Gamespot as the people who made Gamespot a great place to visit at one time are now here.

You know, I could give eight tenths of a shit what Gamespot does.  They made their bed of money in the short term, now hopefully lost bandwidth and user revenue will show the gaming press how erroneous it is to spread your cheeks for the man.
