Hey guys, in case you missed our little live announcement, I've embedded it below. Naturally, we had a minor technical issue at the beginning, so skip the first four or five minutes to get to the show!

Sounds like some people are having trouble seeing the embedded video that's supposed to be right here. If that's you, watch it right here.

Pretty crazy, right? This is going to be the thing that allows us to make Giant Bomb bigger and crazier than it's ever been before, and I hope you all stick around with us. Just like Ryan's been saying, it won't be boring. OK, right now we're heading over to GameSpot offices for the first time since 2007. Be sure to check back at 4PM PDT, when we'll be addressing my termination. Finally! The story can be told!

We'll also have a full update on what all this means for premium members very shortly.

(And hey, check out Tested for information about their crazy news!)

Bigger budgets, better salaries for the crew, better production, more fun. If integrity is kept.

Want more random PC game stuff too.

I don't see this as bad news after the video. I just hope the sites can remain separate.

I am cautiously optimistic about the website, but do wish everyone at Giant Bomb (and all of Whiskey Media) good luck in their endeavors. You guys really did something unique with Giant Bomb, and I think it's an important example that shows people can still go out and build cool stuff on the internet as the medium matures.

Super excited for this. It seems to only mean great, great things. I have faith that all the guys will stick to their guns and wouldn't have done the deal without being sure that CBS wouldn't manipulate or control them at all.

It won't be boring, but car crashes also aren't boring.

Also, I'm glad I got my subscription at a discount.

Note: This deal means Giantbomb will no longer be a Whiskey Media website and that your subscription to Whiskey (paid or otherwise) stays with Whiskey. How this translates to the new Giantbomb or what happens with your personal info has not been discussed yet.

This edit will also create new pages on Giant Bomb for:

Beware, you are proposing to add brand new pages to the wiki along with your edits. Make sure this is what you intended. This will likely increase the time it takes for your changes to go live.

Until you earn 1000 points all your submissions need to be vetted by other Giant Bomb users. This process takes no more than a few hours and we'll send you an email once approved.
