Vinny, Brad, and Alex are leaving Giant Bomb and I am very sad
Not really related to BM at all but I know there are a lot of fans here.
I am really sad, GB has been a massive part of my life for nearly a decade now and it looks like this is the end of the site as we currently know it. They rekindled my love for video games after falling out of the hobby during college and have been a constant presence in my life since then. A lot of cool threads going around on twitter and various places sharing thoughts and highlights but if anything it's just making me more sad.
They haven't said anything directly but from speculation I've seen it looks like this is related to them being acquired by Red Ventures and RV not really understanding what they bought since the move was mostly for CNET and Gamespot. These private venture assholes killed Deadspin and now Giant Bomb, nothing good can live anymore even if it's successful unless some corporate ghoul sees the correct amount of growth opportunity or whatever the fuck.
