Just resubbed. Can we get a shout out to the new core crew as well. I love the direction!
Welcome Back Dan Appreciation Thread
Dan coming back full-time is A) something I never thought would happen and B) possibly the only thing that could convince me that Giant Bomb was going to continue being Giant Bomb, instead of turning into something that might be good but would definitely be completely different.
Thank you, Dan, for many years of laughs going back to the Game Informer days, and here's to the future!
Okay, sure, why not? Dan at the realms can definitely make things very...interesting again. The other new additions were obvious, but are no less appreciated.
I still kinda hate, the blog post from yesterday and how this was handled in general, but oh well.
Also any word yet on if Dan will still continue the Fire Escape Cast and the planned "Best Podcast ever" (occasionally) for Nextlander? That's a lot of podcasts for one guy.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but I think Dan leaving was the biggest blow to content production this site received over the last 8 years. Having him come back to be a content director is really the best I could have expected in the announcement. I’m excited and terrified to see what he has planned.
(Shenmue 2 Endurance Run pls)
I joined the site relatively recently (near Extra Life 2018) so most of my favorite shows were Dan led. Whether it was crazy like Burgle or straightforward like Goldeneye I just appreciate the energy he brought to games and creating discussions and content around them. I kept my sub because I believed in Jan but getting Dan back sealed it. I'm glad games will be back
I can't believe Dan quit WWE to come back. He literally left here to pursue his dream job, basically started streaming immediately after and then bounced. Surreal turn of events.
Yeah that is weird. I still don't really know what he did at WWE. Not that it's any of my business. I just hope Fire Escape keeps going. It's probably my favourite podcast at this point. His enthusiasm is definitely welcome here.
@boozak: he said a few times today (mostly on his own stream) that he wasn’t allowed to do what he wanted by WWE. I guess he pitched a bunch of “Dan ideas” and was rejected over and over. It wasn’t the wrestlers but the higher ups, even referring to the “old guy.” (Wonder who that could be?) It might not have been the dream job he thought it was, sadly.
