    I'm surprised he hasn't surfaced amidst this site being launched.  I hope he makes an appearance on the podcast when the games he's working on start coming out.

    He was always the best on Gamespot and unlike the rest didn't try to crack a joke every 5 minutes.

    Plus his reviews scores were always the most accurate.

    He should have the voice of the Apocalypse tank. "It will be... their final moments. Or maybe a cameo as a General in the cutscenes.

    He should have a FMV role.
    I remember some clip on GS where he had a big fake beard and it was all old timey and sepia toned.

    You said it, dudes. "Greg Kasavin" was the first person I searched at GiantBomb.com. I love the picture of him that was included. You're the man, Greg. You're the man.

    Greg is the man and I would love to see him as a guest on the Bombcast someday.  Hell, Skype the motherfucker in if you have to.  Sound quality could never affect his Gregness.

    They can't he is working as a game developer, and I highly doubt he would want to give up such a great job (heck I wouldn't). Rich went to the east coast to start a new life/family/job there. So many things will probably not be the same, but having 4 of the originals is awesome onto its own. I can't wait to see how this site develops, and for more laughs! :D

    Greg Kasavin is an extremely genuine person. I really admired his work ethics. I consider him to be one of my role models in  a way =)
    It would truly be amazing if Greg was a guest on one of the Bombcasts, even if they had to do it over the internet.

    Totally agree. One of my personal rolemodels. And Im totally joining in on requesting him as a guest on the bombcast. Its been way to long since I saw or heard anything from Kasavin. I am still hoping to get my hands on the full 8 hour version of his Oblivion marathon so I can stop watching the highlights reel over and over for my Greg fix. Will never happen of course...

    Greg Kasavin was the greatest game reviewer around. Not only did he know games, he also knew how to write. And man-oh-man, I remember one time when I saw 3 reviews done by him in 1 day. Listening to him speak was always a delight, because he was such a great speaker and he knew his stuff. I'd love to see and hear from him again, chatting it up with the guys over here at Giant Bomb.

    He was one of the best reviewers.

    When I would see a review that was written by Kasavin, I knew it was not only credible, but in-depth and as unbiased as you can get.

    I didn't really think too much of Greg. But when he left it was a bit of a shock because I realized that he was one of the best video game critics around. I'm glad to hear things have worked out for him.
