So basically this is going to be like the Giantbomb version of West Coast Avengers? Just, y'know, reversed.

In any case, good luck Vinny! Woo pizza!

I just realized -- this means more video content with Alex.

Like, Quick Looks. With Alex Navarro.

I'm way into this.

Exciting news, Vinny! I really hope we don't see less of you on the site, though!

Wow. Happy for Vinny because it sounds like this is really what he wants but man, I feel like the way all the guys play off each other is what makes the Bombcast and UPF my favorite things on this site and Vinny is a huge part of that. Vinny calling in for the Bombcast could probably work but I'm not so sure UPF will ever be the same again. Good luck, Vinny. You're my favorite turd.

Happy to hear that you are going back to NY to be closer to your family, even though I and everyone else will miss you being in the SF crew. Knock this out of park, duder.

This kind of answers the, "When is Pathfinder returning?" question.

I guess Small Businessman ended up flying to New York to deliver a package because the post office was on fire and he didn't use stamps.com.

This is some crazy news. I am looking forward to seeing all the cool new content that you guys are going to be putting together. Plus we can now have coast on coast beef inside the giantbomb family!

Good luck with the move and I can't wait to see what the next piece of news is going to be!

I can't help but think the Bombcast is gonna suffer from this. Jeff's getting a little to jaded for his topics to be funny or interesting, Brad is pretending to be asleep most of the time(or is asleep), and Drew is awesome, but needs to be coerced a bit to chime in. Full time Danny on the podcast as a replacement would be great though.

This sounds really exciting, but I hope the whole no skyping into the podcast thing gets re-evaluated.

So you open a position for a video producer because Vinny and Drew need help and then you lose Vinny. What does this mean for Pathfinder? Now there is now Vinny and Jeff interaction. No possible hope of another ER. No Vinny on streams.. Is Vinny going to be getting a larger crew or is it just him and Alex? We need Danny O'Dwyer to fill in for Vinny.

Good luck Vinny. Definitely exciting times for Giant Bomb. Also worrying. Is GB really in a position to "expand"? Lets hope the new hires will turn out excellent..

Also they're still going to be a little short on staff despite the new hires aren't they?

Well this fucking sucks. This is good for him but this leaves a huge gap in GBSF.

One of the things that made losing Ryan bearable was Vinnies sunshine presence and positivism to offset the general cynical attitude of Jeff. What he added to every podcast/video was amazing and I'm going to miss him :(

Having to pair him with Alex who I find to be rather grinding is kind of a bummer. I sincerely hope they re-think their remote attendance podcast stance...

Lots of changes happening around Giant Bomb. At first I was kind of bummed, but the idea of two Giant Bombs creating content at the same time is exciting.

Next week I’m going to be heading to New York to join Alex and launch this Giant Bomb East office into the stratosphere.

I... I don't know how to process this.

I'm sure you all have thought this out long and hard, but it's hard to really know what to think of it. Good? Bad? Just different? I suppose the ol Bomb continues to change. Hopefully it will be for the better. I continue to believe in you guys; so, I have to believe this will somehow make Giant Bomb even more than it already is.

Having said that, I just want to tell you, @vinny... Good luck. We're all counting on you.
