So the guys had their shit stolen from the shooting space tonight apparently. They weren't able to stream a show after that awesome PS4 press conference and they all seem pretty upset about it, so I thought this could be a spot where we could all just remind them how much we dig them and all the hard work they do to keep us entertained and up to date about videogames and shit.

So hey Giant Bomb dudes, you're all awesome, I know you'll overcome this shitty situation and be as funny and entertaining as ever, thanks for everything!

At least they're owned by CBS now. The multimedia giant probably has some spare cameras they can use.

No raw reaction is of course a bummer, but hilarious tweets from Jeff, Ryan, and Alex all day was still some great content. Thanks!

Really bummed out about what happened tonight. We're all rooting for you guys. Hope everything works out OK. If there's any site that can work with with it's back against the wall, it's GIant bomb. I'm sure the crew can still salvage this E3 and put on something great as always.

Looking on the bright/ironic/funny side of this: they stay in LITERALLY one of the worst areas of the US in one of the WORST houses I've ever seen and everything goes 100% fine. They have a professional space and their shit gets stolen...life's hilarious in it's strangeness.

Of COURSE this also sucks, but I love and appreciate Giant Bomb and all they do. Much like the greatest bits of entertainment: the wait, no matter how long, will be worth it.

Dude. If they were still Whiskey Media....that would have been a DISASTER. That kind of financial hit could easily killed Giant Bomb without backing from CBS.

You guys are Number One. This is the one site that I really enjoy reading and listening to. No show tonight due to 'Unforeseen Consequences', but you can expect me to be here tomorrow and the next day and the next day.

So sorry this happened. From being on tour, i can say this is a very common occurrence for bands. Never happened to myself but I've seen it many times. Had that same horrible helpless feeling seeing Jeff on the stream. If anyone can figure this out, it's the bombsquad. I don't care if you have to stream in off an iphone, I'll be tuning in tomorrow.

Hang in there guys. It wasn't in your control and your fans will understand you. I know it probably cost a ton of money, but it was probably insured (I hope) and you'll look back on this one day and laugh.

You guys are bunch of cool cats and I appreciate all that you do for us! Without you, I wouldn't have had all the many gaming experiences I've had really recently and I'm really thankful for that. I know you guys will get through this! Just keep on keeping on!

So I guess if anyone runs, or knows people that runs, Pawn Shops or other such establishments in the LA area, keep on the look out for camera equipment being turned in, and report it to the cops as a possible connection? The powers of the internet could be used for good just this once, right?

Even if not, man this sucks.

I'm trying to picture Brad and Vinny truly angry right now, and it's simply impossible. I just cannot imagine such a thing, and shame on the thief/thieves for making the impossible happen in such a shitty way.

For real, though, I still can't believe that this happened. It sucks enough on its own, but after all the good vibes leading up to it? That's really, really shitty.

There's going to be waaaaaaaaaaay too much to talk about tomorrow. If you guys start early, please give us a heads up. And, dude, relax, we're here for the Bomb crew, not all the fancy gear. Remember Arrow Pointing Down? We don't need no stinking cameras! Just you guys. E3! Soak it in, as only you guys can, and spit it all back out on us. New Consoles! Vidjagames!

I see Brad and Vinny being the happy, smiling victim in court that just goes all terminator after running into the suspect in the hallway.

Really though lets get some info on the equipment, we'll get some eyes out there.

Doesn't Rorie have a puppy to sniff out the bad guys? Or at least a chubby bull dog to keep watch over the video equipment?

Sucks that this happened but keep in mind it's been a pretty phenomenal day, don't let this get you down!

Soon enough, this will just become an entertaining story you'll get to tell for years to come.

But for now, I really hope you can get some rest and be able to secure equipment for the rest of E3. It's awful when things like this rain on an otherwise great event, but you will get through it as you always have. This doesn't have to be a bad E3. This can simply be a memorable one.

Good luck, guys. You are absolutely in my thoughts and prayers as you face this challenge. I know you will somehow make the most of it.

@shagge: Vinny puts holes in walls when he's frustrated. When he's angry there are no walls. When he's angry don't get between Vinny and... anything.

This fucking sucks. Being robbed fucking sucks. I feel for these guys and I hope they don't think they owe us anything.

Really?

Uh...I don't think Jeff or Ryan paid for all that equipment out of pocket. And I don't think CBS is exactly going broke. It's terrible that their stuff got jacked and the people who did it are wastes of life, but if you have money burning a hole in your pocket, there are about a million more worthwhile causes for your cash.

I was on a jury once, it was for a guy who was selling two cameras that were stolen from a house. The guy who had his stuff stolen checked Craigslist like a day and a half later, and found the same types of cameras that were stolen, and they were both listed by the same seller. Luckily he had written down the serial numbers, so the police went undercover, pretended they were interested in buying them, checked the serial numbers at the meet up, and arrested him once they saw that they matched. Dude got his cameras back, thief went to jail. The point of this story, is that even though the guys will be busy with e3, they should have someone check craigslist in the next couple of days. You never know.
