This is just too depressing, I unsubscribed, as much as I loved Cranky Old Man Jeff I can't deal with this anymore

New intro perfectly encapsulates modern Giant Bomb: too busy with no clear direction.

After listening to the mouthbreathers that call into their voicemail talk show, I've come to the realization that their fanbase are basically the gaming equivalent of Juggalos...  :fbm

(Should have realized this 20 years ago when Jeff went onto Good Morning America in full FUBU uniform.)

I think 8-4 Play is the only genuinely good gaming podcast left.

Depends. Did you hate Ben or Abby? Do you miss Brad, Vinny, and/or Alex? Listen to Nextlander. :doge

Jeff is Jeff.
Jeff B had better chemistry with Vinny, for sure.
Jan, Jason, and Jess are fine, but also not entertaining.

On that note, it's Jiant Bomb now.

Jeff has been pretty done with the site since years ago, even before Ryan died (he admitted it in the first podcast after Ryan death). I canít imagine he giving a fuck after everyone left (and it shows given how little he was in the free video content anymore).

What a slow death.

Most old school game journos GTFO and went to PR/development, I always felt Jeff was a crazy outlier for holding on for so long, I wonder what he's gonna do.

Whatís been said is, before Ryan passed, Jeff was planning on getting out. Things happened one after another. Maybe he felt obligated to keep GB afloat.

Heís been doing this since at least the Dreamcast. Watched a video of him going through his garage, digging out old promotional items for psi op mindgate conspiracy and that area 51 fps. Joking in a ďow my lifeĒ way but some honesty there.

Site has been dead for a couple of years tho. They could have kept the premium subscriber train rolling, but they made one terrible decision after another. Sometimes I go back to watch some old stuff, but this rapid decline over the past 5 years was entirely self-inflicted.

Dan going back should be a positive, he was mostly the only one who could be bothered to come up with ideas for and doing premium content for most of his spell there.

Still don't give enough of a shit to actually watch anything of theirs though.

I guess he figured he can get more of that revenue when it's just him?

Already 3000+ patreons.

That's $15000 if they're all at the lowest tier.

I donít think Dan has a good straight man than can counter balance him outside of Jason. I donít dislike Rorie but he was never video material.

Still a pass to me.

I didnít followed Dan in his quixotic journey to the WWE, is true that he ended hating the job like everyone warned it was going to happen?

I don't even know why Dan went back, people were already showering him with money on Twitch. It's not like Dan has any good chemistry or know any of the remaining GB members that well.

That + Twitch subs and perhaps Youtube money in the future

From when Giantbomb started, at least 75% of the audience watched and stuck around because of Jeff. He was always the main draw, unquestionably.

That Patreon number will obviously dome down a bit, but it still shows how dedicated the GB fanbase is. Pretty telling that Jeff had over 15k viewers on twitch while GB content barely cracked 1000 views on youtube. That shows the quality of their output.

I listened to his first podcast and I don't really get it. It's just like him solo reading the news off of Resetera. Without anyone to play off it seems pretty boring.

That being said, solo Jeff can be great, watching him play shitty old C64 games or do Garage Talk is A+++

does quality matter? patreon is basically a retirement pension for old internet personalities.
