Jeff will spend the next six months doing garage streams twice weekly, on a quest to locate the rest of his Jack In The Box "Jack's Back" merch

I’m just really curious to see where things can go at this point. Their new parent company has been opening new positions at Gamespot for the last few months, but none at GB (even after Abby and Ben left) and that doesn’t seem like a good sign

I’d definitely recommend downloading any videos/articles from their site you’d want to rewatch later on because Red Ventures doesn’t seem like they’d bother to maintain an archive of GB content (if it came to that)

apparently a bunch of people left gamespot in recent weeks, and at least one of their international offices didn't survive the pandemic

doesn't bode well tbh

beastcast is the only gb stuff I've Consumed in the past year or two so that's sad. But red ventures seems like it would be a monstrously lovely Corp to work for so I hope they find better poo poo to do with their lives now

I wouldn't be surprised if Vinny just disappears tbh. He's talked before about how he doesn't want to be a 60 year old man still talking about Sonic or whatever

Also here's this old rear end best of vinny video doing what he did best: loving around in videogames

yeah i cant imagine them coming back from this. theyre bleeding people and red ventures seems like they just bought them to squeeze out every penny and then quietly kill them off. i just hope everyone lands on their feet eventually

You'll taste it.


I think it is fairly likely that they end up somewhere fine, maybe even together. Jeff is going to stick around because they had a longer buyout period for senior managers and he has a kid on the way.

these guys have deep connections. please remember that there is a company willing to pay patrick klepek 100k for what he does.
