I'm definitely not working for Dave Lang.

That is exactly what someone who IS going to work for Dave Lang would say.

I'll miss you, Patrick. Good luck with everything you do in the future, and thanks for everything you've done here at Giant Bomb.

Hope to see you continuing to do good work somewhere soon.

i thought this would happen in way Patrick was doing alot of different types of work and some of it worked well within giant bomb and some of it felt bit out of place. though Patrick has had positive influence on giant bomb the dump truck being one in many.

good luck Patrick

Mondays and Fridays will not be nearly as special without Scoops in the morning. You're still awesome though!

Sad to hear you're going Patrick. You've been a really good addition to the Bombsquad that added something a little different to the site, a different (and slightly younger) perspective which I greatly appreciated. And while with the internet you'll never be far away, it'll be a shame not to see you on the annual Game of the Year videos next year. So I guess you'll need to make sure you drop round to the Giant Bomb set at E3 this year, gatecrash if you have to!

Good luck and I'm sure I'll keep an eye on your work wherever it is that you land. And hey, at least you went out on a high because holy shit that duet you and Jeff did of Click Click Boom is one for the ages!

You brought a great perspective and a desire to broaden the conversation on this site which was sorely needed. Giantbomb will always be a fun place, but it'll be a lesser place without you. Thank you for all your fine work over the last few years, and best of luck in all your future endeavors. I look forward to seeing what you do next :)

Best of luck in your future endeavors Patrick. I had a wonderful time talking to you at your TED talk and Spookin with Scoops is the only way I can handle scary games (me with all the lights on watching you with all the lights off). You'll be missed here but I can't wait to see what you do next. <>

Klepek: you've been frustrating me since the exXy days at 1up.

I look forward to finding where you land next so the frustration can continue.

Be well.

I dislike the term "people of color", isn't white also a colour?

Man.

I just signed up for Premium, and I gotta say, your presence on the site was a big driving factor for that decision. Although I'm sure the rest of the staff had your back, you were always the one posting the kinds of pieces that need to posted in the wake of all of the hate that the community suffered through in 2014.

I wasn't a Giant Bomb fan until after you had joined, and you've always been a key part of the experience for me. You'll be missed, bud. Good luck.
