Yeah, I probably shouldn't be making this thread, but today I woke up, checked my e-mail and there was one alerting me for the fact that Giant Bomb Premium was live, like 6 hours ago. What happened? What was it?

Jeff resigned. He's moving to Rome. They're getting a guy from Gamespot to fill his spot.

In an unanticipated move CBS was bought by AnimeVice so someone would pay attention to it.

@DeF: 7 hours ago would be 9PM their time. It's 4AM over there right now.

Talking to GIantBomb users is like talking to one of my friends; you just don't know when they're fucking around.

Will Smith most certainly did a live show like 6 hours ago, no idea why Giant Bomb would alert you of that though.

Actually no, I can't think of anything shittier than that. And I'm not being ironic.

Here's the proof of my e-mail alert and that I am not crazy:

Forget the obviously-not-English part. This is the alert I get every time they start a Premium live stream.

Who knows.  Maybe they were testing something?  Or maybe it was just a mixup with justin.tv.  Nothing happened so you didn't miss anything.

Since the rest of us didn't get any sort of notice, I'd suggest someone is phishing you.

They fired him because he plans to give Star Wars Kinect 8.8 out of 5 stars.

They finally launched the Giant Bomb space shuttle. It's basically a giant likeness of Jeff riding luchadeer.

Brad is leaving Giantbomb for a stint on Broadway. Jeff has decided to go make games with Gameloft and Vinny is finally going to release his self help video series, expect a Kickstarter soon.

Waking up after a crazy night, no idea where you are, a strange women in bed with you and an e-mail from Justin.TV about a Giant Bomb premium stream. Ah, college.

You probably have your settings set so that you receive email notifications regarding live Giant Bomb shows

Normally you don't get email notifications. I believe you have to follow the channel and tell it to email you in your account settings. How many of us even have an account, let alone do either of those things?
