Fuck. :(

And here I was just thinking that there were too many random Giant Bomb things going on these days and they needed to rein in back in to get the quality of game coverage back up.

Going to miss you on the Bombcast. I assume they aren't planning on skype-ing you in every single week?

That said, Now that Giantbomb East is a thing, and I recently moved to Jersey, I now have a chance of attending any GB meetups you guys might potentially have.

I have no idea if that'll ever happen or not, but if it does, I'll show up!

This sucks. I'm sorry. This just sucks. But I respect you, Vincent, I respect you a lot. So do us proud!

On a sidenote, fingers crossed these incoming newjacks are up to snuff. I guess at this point any new hirings are unlikely gonna be ex-gamespot folks (Carrie Gouskos would have been great...or whatever, just tell Rich Gallup to quit his social gaming fantasy gig and come over to the best coast). And I'm sorry Patrick, Max Tempkin is just too much of a hater; he just doesn't get the fun-lovin' culture that Giant Bomb is all about. And dude, bro, Vinny, gonna miss you and your antics. It ain't gonna be the same, man. It just ain't.

Expanding GB is cool. Vinny hosted podcast are my favorite thing. Being close to family is always good. But, come on, I'm raising a 7yr old and 5 yr old triplets here in the Bay Area. Plus, it is just my wife and I, my family is in LA and her family is spread across the country. If we can do it with four, anyone can. Anyway, good luck Vinny I look forward to seeing what GBNY gives us.

Soooo.... Vinny and Alex are going to set up a proper office and green screen for themselves, right? If Vinny is stuck Skyping from his bedroom his talents will be going to waste :(

Here's hoping it's the former and all the GB folks end up happy.

I do not envy whoever is going to be the new on air talent. Filling Vinny's shoes is like trying to fill the shoes of someone with really really big feet. Like freakishly big.

You know what they say about guys with freakishly big feet...

Oh, Vinny. ; ; You're leaving our fair Bay Area?? I think I'll miss you most from things like Unprofessional Fridays. The playfulness you add to your production style is just magic so much of the time on streams. I guess we'll still see your dumb, beautiful face on East Coast content, but it's hard to see the GB family fragment even further. Still, if this will make you happier in the end I guess that's a good thing, and I'll try not to be sad over it... Ah, fuck it. *dives forward and grabs onto Vinny's ankles* Don't goooooo!! Nuooo!

Damn man.. this is scary as shit.. but also exciting?

Are you going to get another office in NY? Or are you going to record out of your house with Alex? I'm guessing there is at least one new person that will be with the GB NY office?

Don't you need like the $100,000+ worth of recording equipment you've got in SF?

What about the Bombcast? We love hearing you on there and wish there was a way to include Patrick and Alex more reliably but a stable method was never found?

What about poor Drew? It seems like even with two capable people running the back end, there were still times you both seem over worked or having to fill in for other people etc. The big complicated live shows.. Oh man.

I don't know what to think. This is coming out of nowhere for me. It felt like you guys were on financial and energy life-support with all the crap that's been going down lately.

Just crazy. Perhaps I would have applied for the AE position if I had known there was going to be an NY office.. ehh probably not. Still too scared.

Best of luck Vinny. You and Alex will bring it hard.

I really don't want you to leave the podcast, but I'm very excited for the future of Giant Bomb! I know you and Alex will join forces to kick ass here on the East coast. Best of luck to you, the family, and Vinn Co.

I LOVE Vinny and I really wish the best for him but god damn...

Vinny is like the soul of GB, especially when he's paired with Jeff. Hell, in all honesty I'm a suscriber because of Vinny and all the content he produces with the rest of the crew. Even the Bombcast takes a huge hit when Vinny isn't in it.

All in all, at least for me; this kinda fucking sucks.

It's a time for change, so I believe this is a good opportunity to kill the Bombcast. Kill it and replace with The Bombcast Tapes: Side A (West coast team, releases on Tuesday) and Side B (East coast team, releases on Friday).

Getting a new Jeff hosted podcast and a new Vinny hosted podcast every week would be pretty sweet.

Oh my god, this is so exciting! The east coast will be thrilled to have you back, Vinny.

And we'll also be eager to hear about any potential need for interns at Giant Bomb East, because fuck. I have two years left of college and I wasn't going to stay in Philly forever anyway.

This is such big news. I'm so happy for all of you!

Does this mean Danny O'Dwyer is going to move over to Giant Bomb? That'd be pretty awesome (for GB, not so much for GS..).

Oh man, I can only imagine the tidal wave of content that will make its way across the country as GBNY turns into a true powerhouse.

Plus we'll finally get to re-enact the East Coast/West Coast beef of the 90s, but with a bunch of dudes playing games instead of rappers.

This is kind of a scary move.

Am I the only one who's kind of nervous?

Competing for time in your own space sounds like it could be solved with this move, and it would be great to have more Alex on the site. But also, Bombcast hurts from this I think.

I'm scared, hold me.
