Careful. I made the same thread and it was locked within 15 minutes for no clear reason. Stick to the Giant Bomb forums if you want to actually discuss this.

I fully expect this to be locked, and that's why I give Dracula64's modding a 6.0 rating.

Sounds good to me. I've been sticking to the Giant Bomb forums for ages now, and judging by the general atmosphere I've been seeing here today, that has been a VERY good decision.

I felt for Jeff because if the circumstances surrounding his departure, but neither Gamespot nor Giant Bomb has one ounce of my respect as a journalistic outley either way.

From what little I understand, CBS just bought GiantBomb. GS and GB aren't consolidating or anything.

Now I can start caring about the game content section of this site again. Jeff did say giantbomb.com is going to stay up and they will keep doing reviews for it. Not sure how that is going to work. We'll see.

I think Giantbomb are going to use Gamespot's offices, rather than Whiskey Media's offices.

Well I thought you were smoking the wacky tobacky when you made that thread but have been since told otherwise now. Yes, they are moving into the same building as GS.

Here is a better link.

Two things stand out:

"No content will change. The Bombcast is still every Tuesday, and Quicklooks/video content will resume soon. DO NOT send mailbag stuff to their old office."

"GiantBomb will have it's own content, and will have full editorial control over it. They will not cut any features just because Gamespot already does it."

Don't get it at all. CBS media, who own Gamespot (as well as Cnet for that matter) now owns Giant Bomb as well. I don't see anything at all that says the Giant Bomb people will now be working for Gamespot, or even associated with them in any way.

EDIT: Oh never mind, just read that they're sharing the same offices, but remaining separate entities.

Nothing. They'll just work in the GS offices and their company is owned by CBS now. The content should, as GB says, stay the same.

Jeff said they'd be doing another stream at 4pm PDT to answer more questions. That should clear a lot of things up.
