Thanks for everything, Patrick! Including (and, to me, maybe most importantly) proudly wearing that SJW badge. You were a big reason why I felt so welcome in this community, and I hope that feeling sticks for years to come.

So I'm guessing the studio he tweeted about only a few days ago is related to whatever he's doing now. Huh. I remember wondering what was up with them setting up a studio for one man. At least GBNY was attached with CBSi other stuff, where as Patrick never made mention of any such thing. Explains a lot, but didn't see it coming.

Good luck dude.

Keep us updated on what you're up to, Patrick. I don't want last fortnight's Spookin' to be the final time I see your terrified face in the dark.

Wow that came out super creepy. Apropos!

See ya, buddy.

Goodbye Patrick, you'll be missed. Good luck in whatever endeavors you find yourself in next. I still kick myself for at least not buying you a drink that one time I ran into you at Cole's.

Since before you left San Francisco, I recognised that you had a unique vision, talent, and contribution to GB, and I thought "Patrick will eventually just run his own site." I don't know if that's where you're going, but after you stopped Worth Playing, I knew it was downhill and that you were going to leave. After you stopped Worth Playing, I stopped going to Giant Bomb as much, since you were what brought me here in the first place. I mostly just came once a week for Worh Reading, since those are great and I even still go back to them (why isn't it easy to find old ones directly on the site?). When Dan joined, I stopped going to Giant Bomb even more. I'm going to follow your future career, Patrick Klepek.

Wow, this caught me off guard! It explains why the ending of the last Bombin' the AM was so final at least.

Thanks Patrick, I may not have read through everything you'd done but your work ethic and passion really showed. I get the impression we're gonna get a lot less text features for the time being and I'll miss it.

Thanks for doing what you do Patrick. Scoops and The Wolf walked me to work twice a week and got me through most lunch breaks. Listening to you break down fresh news from the industry taught me things about thinking analytically and opened me up to parts of the business I would have seldom read about.

All the best in whatever is on the horizon. Thank you.

And the Giant Bomb community won't soon forget you either, Patrick. Thank you for all the laughs, insight, and memories. I've always felt a connection to you and your content; this is partly because I find that we're similar people sometimes and partly because we like similar things (HORROR!). I hope to keep absorbing whatever content you put out and reading your thoughts. Keep doing what you think is right, I know I'll support it. Thanks again Patrick. You will be missed, no doubt..

Patrick your voice will be missed here. You gave a lot of video game nerds some real issues to consider and form opinions on that we otherwise may have ignored. I'll miss you on the site and chances are I'll be keeping up with you wherever life takes you next. Later duder.
