Danny O'Dwyer's Tumblr

I think there may have been a few hints about this in recent weeks, but it sounds as if both Giant Bomb and Gamespot are moving a few floors down in the CBSi building and into some new spaces. What isn't really mentioned in Danny's post is when the move might be occurring. I imagine it will be a good deal of work to not just build a studio/workspace, but move everything from the current one downstairs as well. Hopefully there isn't too much in the way of downtime.

Interesting. They pretty much just took over some random space and made it their own. I'll be interested to see what a space designed for them could look like.

What about Live Shows? Will they have a new space for that too?

I wish CBS would just give them a house somewhere near SF that they could do whatever the hell they felt like doing.

Hopefully the new space will be largely ready to go before they have to move, so the whole thing will as painless as possible.

Looking forward to "They're still settling into the new space, give them some time" for the next few years. :P

I'll hope for a designated box room and a basement like the old days in addition to a kick ass studio space.

Better yet give them their own floor and see what happens!

@meatball: I imagine shifting their currently-existing setup downstairs to a new studio will be a lot easier than creating a new studio in a new location from scratch, which has been the GBeast issue so far. But I guess we'll find out soon enough! I'm not opposed to this although hopefully with GameSpot moving too it won't mean that random people stop wandering in during live shows.

Damn. I hope they didn't get the money and run from the BLLSL subscription sale in anticipation of the "getting used to the new office" slowdown that we saw a few years ago. I couldn't bear another one of those.

In before "omg GS and GB are merging"

Good thing GB keeps all that cardboard around for moving stuff. I do feel bad for Jason & Drew though.

Sure the guaranteed multi-day full stop on production is going to suck, but it's the loss of the current Giant Bomb set that is the real shame. Over the last couple years they've developed that space into an incredibly attractive set, brimming with personality. I've no doubt that they can make the new studio into something great as well, but man, I really like the current set. The set for The Lobby is also very slick, and will also be a shame to see dismantled.

I wonder if the GB guys are gonna be situated right next to a dumpster so that they can just toss all the boxes instead of waiting for it to pile up...

But then again, how else are we supposed to get these gold spring cleaning videos?

you know what, they should just put the GB duders as far away from any sort of trash receptacle as they can, so that the trash pile up gets super worse and the spring cleaning videos will be super gold!

I'd be curious to know if the move is CBSi mandated because of some logistical reasons (maybe rent a floor down is cheaper). Orrrr if Vinny and Drew requested real studio space like 3 years ago and the request was just approved by management that seems to work at glacial speeds lol...

GameSpot spent all of CBSi's money landing Sisqo for E3, Giant Bomb has to move (back) to the basement.

Yep! I get that it was a nightmare for them to work out of, but damn I miss that place every time I think about the beginnings of Giant Bomb.

At least we now have GB East so there should be a constant flow of content during the move, right? Maybe?

Also hoping this isn't the case, but the last time they did a subscription sale was right before Vinny left for New York, along with the content gap that of course created.

Hopefully this means they are getting a real studio to work in and not a random open space in the middle of an office floor.

Sounds good. I love the content, don't get me wong, but it looks like they're forced to work in a damn corridor for the live stuff. Hope it gets better.

I don't miss the basement. Always looking forwards.

Miss Ryan though.

I'm hoping the wing they move into has a neglected multi-story auditorium so they can start having studio audiences for UPF.

I can get behind this. A live studio audience is the spark that UPF needs.

@christoffer: as much as I enjoy PAX panels I don't think I want to see live audience stuff /every/ week.

I imagine if this was the route they were going for we'd be seeing a "buy a brick" promotion
