Well, he was on that company for, what?, almost 5 years. He seems committed to be on the dev side of the industry so it would be natural for him to continue that way.

Probably. Someone has to replace Brad when he leaves.

I think the old GameSpot crew might be cursed or something. They should make a movie about it.

It'd be cool, Rich was always pretty awesome at GS. Although I think he'll continue being a developer.

Rich is actually going to star in the reboot of The Ben and Rich Show, coming this fall to CBS.

the forum is pretty much fan fiction

as soon as a friend or former co worker of the guys on Giant Bomb seems in trouble or out of a job, everyone makes a post asking if they will be joining the site

Hey you know that guy that lost his job that reviewed games that one time? Is he going to be hired by Giantbomb now?

I know no one would ever ask that, you guys, I'm the first. Cus they all want to work for Giantbomb.

That's how it works, right? Your friend loses his job you just give him one?

Budget? Whats that? Phhfft

Only if he wants to will he, but just as Rorie has moved on from his old Gamespot job Rich has moved his career away from the content producing he did at Gamespot so to speak as if it is inevitability is just wasted breath.

No, it would be a cold day in hell for Rich if he ever works for a place that uses profanity regularly and sits down while podcasting.

@CornBREDX: For the record, Rich never even reviewed games at GameSpot.  
 
But yeah, these threads are incredibly dumb.

They really should hire Rorie. :(

Regardless of if he joins GB or just turns up as one of their unemployed bombcast guests that they like getting in, hopefully Rich has got something lined up - sucks to have something like that happen to a nice guy like him.

Rich seemed to have a good 'tude at PAX. Just wondering how much he knew then. When the company I work for was up for sale and struggling to make payroll it was tough going in each day.

He has a life and a family on the east coast. I imagine a dev job out there will be first choice.

Incorrect. Brad's not leaving, he's moving in to Rich's eyebrow.

I think this kind of rampant speculation was all kicked off by the fact that it actually happened with Alex Navarro and Matt Rorie a few years ago.

People keep forgetting that Rich got a job at 38 BECAUSE he moved to the East coast, not the other way around.
