On his blog on March 5, 2008, and again on a broadcast of ''Series/XPlay'', Jeff Gerstmann, best known for his role in the ''VideoGame/KaneAndLynch'' debacle at Gamespot in 2007 (long story short -- he was fired, essentially for giving an overly negative review to a game heavily featured in Gamespot advertising), revealed that he and Ryan Davis, an editor who had resigned in the aftermath of the review debacle, had joined forces to create a new gaming Web site called Giant Bomb. Vinny Caravella and Brad Shoemaker, two other resigning Gamespot editors, joined them soon afterward, with Alex Navarro (again, of Gamespot), [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Drew Scanlon, Dan Ryckert, Jason Oestreicher, and Austin Walker (not of Gamespot)]] having joined since. The site started as a simple blog while the actual layout was being constructed. It is now, in addition to featuring reviews and industry news, a wiki for anything related to gaming.
