In the recent podcast, Giant Bomb staff revealed that at PAX 2008, they would have a panel of guest that they will be featuring. They confirmed that Rich Gallup will be one of the guest. Rich Gallup is a famous former editor on Gamespot and hosted many live events.  Could it be possible that Rich Gallup could join his former fellow Gamespot crew?

Man, I thought Rich Gallup was great back at GS. But didn't he move out east?

I don't think so, since he doesn't live anywhere near them anymore.

Why did he leave GS in the first place?

He's working at a game company now.

I don't think he's gonna quit his job and join the crew

Err, wrong forum.

Anyway, Rich moved back to the East Coast recently cos he wanted to go home, there's virtually zero chance he'll move back to the Bay area so soon

It'd be great to have Rich at least chime in every now and then. I know many of us miss him. Gone are the days of the one man standing video game podcasts :(

Rich Gallup was KING hosting On the Spot and even though Jeff was good, after Gallup left it just wasn't the same without him.
I'm afraid I have to echo what many people have already said in that I highly doubt he will move back from Boston so soon with his family and all.
Although I only just realised, Alex has moved to Boston with his new job at Harmonix so they must be hanging out now.

Alex Navarro? Maybe they could have Greg Kasavin as a guest over here, seeing as he's in LA

I hope no one answered this. As I recall, he left to start a family, and because he got a new exciting job. The same happened with Greg, he got a great job developing PC games, why would anyone pass that up. I remember Greg talking about it in his blog. He was a great reviewer, and I can't wait to see how his first game (Red Alert 3) has turned out. But back to Rich, he moved to the east coast, and I highly doubt that he will move back. There is always the chance, but highly unlikely.

really sounds like wishful thinking, will probably be like how Alex Navarro was a guest star on some of the earlier podcasts but now he has a job at Harmonix.

He got the job many months after leaving for Boston. He went there so his fiancée could pursue her law career.

 "Live from the Bomb Shelter Giant Bomb presents the Giant Bombcast. Now here's your host, RRRRRICH GALLUPPP!" That would be cool but it's just going to be a single episode from what i can deduce.

Jeff is actually working for this obsecure little site you probably haven't heard of, Giant Bomb. Rich Gallup, on the other hand, is working for a game company- 38 studios.

I reckon we'll see him occasionally, on the odd podcast every so often. And as long as we do see him occasionally, I'm happy.
