Welcome to the site to you both!

I'm a bit worried about Jason though, because Drew sounded a little too happy to be in charge of someone during the bombcast. Seriously, I hope he can take it.

Welcome to the site Dan and Jason. Relax and enjoy the ride called Giant Bomb.

Oh, I should warn the two to keep your eye on Brad, don't let him abduct and replace you with a pod-people version that loves DOTA.

Welcome Dan and Jason, may lord Gurtsmann(I know) shine his blessing upon you and if he does shine that blessing be sure to reject it right before you sweep the leg to get him down, then proceed to loot his body for gold and monkey pelts and his only copy of Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust. Take the LSLBOB to Brad whom will proceed to not play it well and blame the game for not being good enough for his gaming skillz. After watching Brad go nuts proceed to sweep the leg then loot his body for 10 bottle caps, 4 apples and his prized Medal of Shame. Take the medal of shame to Vinny whom will exchange his first born son for the medal, take the kid over to Patrick whom will give you the options to:

1. Sweep The Leg

2. Sweep The Leg

After making your decision be sure to loot Patrick for hair curls, the goatee of evil Patrick and a dvd on tape of Grandma's Boy, take the tape to Alex whom will sigh and give you the his rock band drums, reject the drums and sweep the leg, Alex has nothing of value so you plant the monkey pelts on him and call the guards to dispose of the ruffian. Take The Horse of Alex and ride over to The House of Madman Rorie, threaten rorie with a leg sweep and he will proceed to give you what you set out on your quest for......... absolutely nothing. The End??????? Yeah i'm done. Welcome guys. Ignore this nonsense I wrote.

Welcome to the circus Dan and Jason.

Hopefully Drew is already passing on his Tricaster knowledge to Jason - how to linger uncomfortably close on Jeffs face when he's disappointed.

Anyway. Really happy to see some new faces on the Bomb Squad!

Welcome Dan and Jason to this, your website about video games, Giant Bomb. Not Giant Bob, though. That's a completely different website we don't talk about.

No, wait, what am I saying. Of course, there is.

There was a fanfic where Jeff ate Ryan and another one in which, if I remember correctly, Ryan had sex with the male protagonist of the fanfic in the restroom of a pizza place (Looks like this one got deleted. Weird.)

I have a huge smile on my face right now. I don't know if it'll go away. That was one of the greatest things I've ever seen, seeing everyone so young but already doing such a dumb thing. It's right up there with the Ryan/Brad/Brad TNT bit where they saw the young Muir and Ryan lost his shit. Oh god Giantbomb makes me so happy sometimes.

Anyway, welcome Dan and Jason! I hope you find a cozy home at this Giantest of Bombs.

Watching this video makes me think about Alex's RoboCop review. It was so great. Here it is:

Yes, a new staffer that is fluent in fighting games, at long last shall the throne for best GiantBomb fighting game player be contended? Shall Jeff "Mr. Tracksuit" Gerstmann finally be toppled?! FIND OUT ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF UNPROFESSIONAL FRIDAYS HOPEFULLY MAYBE.

Welcome, huma- I mean "duders"!

I hope Dan and Jason bring over their Replay sensibilities in some form. New games are fun and all but let's face it: Sheep, Dog 'n' Wolf came out back in '01 and had cartoonish stealth mechanics.
