Jeff's twitter indicates he has flown into LA. Does anyone know what he's there for?

Thanks

He gets to see all the E3 games before E3 so he can start writing about them now and publish as the embargo is lifted.

He said in the latest Jar Time (I believe) that he's been thinking about going on a vacation; maybe that's what's up. Then again, why would he go to L.A. for that? It's probably judges week...

It is E3 judges and calling this stalkerish is so overreacting.

He's taking time of to go spelunking in an abandoned Four Loko factory. And where is it located? In LA, of course.

WARNING: Potential Stalker.

If you guys think this is creepy or stalkery, you clearly haven't spent enough time on the GB forums.

"Which Giant Bomb staff member would you fuck if you had to" is creepy. This is just inquisitive. Its generally pretty safe to assume that when Jeff travels, its related to video games. Which is relevant to the site. Which is in turn is relevant to the users. If he was away on personal business it would be creepy or stalkery, but that almost certainly isn't the case.

Jeff doesn't take vacations. This is suspicious. He's also apparently found the tracking big I installed in his car since its impossible he's been parked outside of a Dominos for two weeks!

But yeah, it is like 4 weeks before E3, so I would imagine this is when all that judging nonsense happens.

Why is everyone on this site so obsessed with calling everything creepy? Jeff posted about this on his twitter, the same twitter the staff encourages people to follow on the front page.

I didn't mean to come across as stalker-ish with this thread. E3 judges week hadn't occurred to me at the time, though I agree it makes sense as the most likely reason for his trip.

At the time of posting I had assumed he was in LA to visit a developer about some new game or other. The implication being that there might be some related coverage coming up on the site this week. Like the GTA5 thing for example.

Sorry if this came across as stalker-ish. Jeff posted the fact that he was in LA on his twitter but didn't say why (not that he is obliged to of course). That was all that piqued my interest.

You creeps should leave Jeff alone. It isn't like he goes to LA for E3 judges this time ever year, mentioned a month a go that E3 judges was coming up, mentioned on Jar Time that E3 judges was around the corner, commented on his tumbler that he likes to go to E3 judges as he connects with a lot of his peers from other sites, said on the Friday show that he would be out all next week and then live tweeted from the plane and landing in LA.

If he wanted you to know what he was doing he would have said something, so respect his privacy!

I don't know why this is creepy. Jeff often travels for the work that he does for this site. People are wondering what he's working on. What's creepy about that? Now, if the answer was that he was on vacation and the trip was personal and people started prying into that, then it's creepy.

You clearly have a knack for not understanding humour, even when it sits on your face. Surely the hyperbolic use of 'Stalker' was a give away. (....Or ridiculous use of capitals in 'WARNING')

However, I did not mean to cause any offence, and you certainly have no need to apologise.

Yours sincerely,

For the record, it's almost definitely E3 Judges Week, as a whole lot of people I follow on Twitter are in L.A. right now and there was a lengthy conversation between Jeff, Abbie Heppe, and some of the HMX people about a karaoke bar they like to go to during judges' week last night. Pope started it 'cause he's NOT at E3 Judges' week.

I didn't do ANY digging to see that conversation, it just played out on my Twitter feed. But, well, maybe that exposes some of the ways Twitter is super-weird.

I know this is a bit off-topic but when exactly is E3 this year, with all these next-gen press conferences and Nintendo's online direct stuff I've lost track of when it all actually kicks off properly.

Conferences are all on June 10th and I think the day after E3 opens.

I'm sure if the staff actually cared about people "stalking" them then they wouldn't post anything public on Twitter.... or run a website centered around on their distinct personalities. Because lets face it, there's not much else to please a daily audience if you're just going to cover video games. If they did care they brought it on themselves.

I'm really interested to know the dynamic during Judges week. Is it super casual where everyone reaches a consensus easily or are their heated battles over what games make the cut (similar to how the GB GOTY discussions play out).
