    I actually just started them a few days ago (catching up on nearly a year backlog due to COVID). I'm only on 370. But so far the early ones are 80+% nostalgia based. The rest current events and game...

    I will not be surprised if one of the casualties of this change is them turning off the subscription model and moving to something new. Mostly because I see Giant Bomb: the Next Generation moving all...

    @frenchy789 said: Vinny and Jeff have families, they operate out of 2 of the most expensive cities in the US/World (NYC and San Francisco) so I can definitely see the owners being like "make major spe...

    The best of luck to Brad, Vinny and Alex. I've been following this team since the Pre-GameSpot Cnet GameCenter days (that green and yellow monstrosity). I'll follow them wherever they land, including...

    I wat there...LIVE! Good, engaging first day. Definitely lower conflict than previous years. Not much arguing as they usually do. Pleasantly suprised they brought back the classic style. I do wis...

    @toughshed: I definitely would not see her leaving and looking for a new job as anything nefarious. It just could mean she was not willing to sign the new contract for a billion reasons. For example...

    @joeywankenobi: I would assume that if they have any news to share, they likely will do it after making detailed plans. I would not expect anything this week, maybe not for a few weeks.

    @nevergameover: I 100% agree with you that is the least likely thing that will happen. Nor do I think they will kill GB entirely. If they are truly profitable on the P&L, that would be a very stup...

    @djhicks1: Just to keep things in perspective:1. Starting over is incredibly expensive and difficult. They have to buy every single piece of gear again. They will have to find a firm or bank to back t...

    My expectation is they will still merge Gamespot and Giantbomb into a unified site. Boost Gamespot’s revenue with GB’s subscription premium program. They will keep everyone on staff, but move them to ...
