Gabe N is going to be there to announce Half-Life 3 is being released on 5.12.12 and a full merger with the WM sites. Which in turn funds the WM jumbo jet where they all live John Travolta style and travel the globe doing chilli cook-offs. Yeah, I know I said the last part before. I'm just trying to keep my hopes up.

My actual guesses are the following

(1) They are moving offices

(2) they are adding a new website or they are making all the sites more integrated instead of all being seperate. Like here is Giantbomb.com /testedTested section instead of tested being a separate website.

not only were those rumours/reports of a deadly premonition sequel true, it is actually finished and has been released exclusively to giant bomb for a non-stop endurance marathon starting today.

@RenMcKormack: I agree. I think closer integration of the sites is warranted and kinda already happening. Dare I say it, the obvious analogy is WWE. When you have guys from one "brand" always on the other show, they're not really branded anymore.

I can only hope this leads to a Will/Norm Invasion angle with Mr. Snider as the authority figure.

Things that it could be:

  • They're moving offices
  • They're becoming independent of Whiskey Media
  • Tested is getting a wiki
  • Giant Bomb and Tested are merging into a new combined site
  • They're hiring a massive number of people
  • They're going on a giant world tour
  • Giant Bomb and Tested are merging with Kotaku or Joystiq
  • They're creating their own TV channel
  • They're going to announce a brand new site.

If it's a new site, like many people are speculating, what kind of site do you guys think it will be?

The only 'sensible' suggestion i can think of is....

Dave's much wanted and often speculated WHISKEY MEDIA MEMBERS STREET PARTY

Paaaaaaaarrrrrrrrttttteeeeeeeyyyyyyy

or maybe a more legal compromise - like a mini-PAX style Whiskey event

@rebgav: I think so. Even not from a business level (which I'm sure it makes sense at), it makes sense from our point of view. Why do we we need completely separate forums, when Tested Folks are likely GiantBomb Folks and so on? Why do we need separate video pages on separate sites, when all I want to see is the latest content? It's a great idea, if/when it happens.

The optimism in this thread is demoralising. I'm expecting good news!

I don't think its a new website, I'm thinking a crazy new feature like the happy hour.

Have they given a reason why they've been at Dave's apartment this week? I think that's related to the announcement.
