This is a rather bittersweet time in the industry. Giant Bomb has recently merged with CBS Interactive, while these other sites have needed to cut back. Giant Bomb will go on to do greater things with their improved resources, but not all can be as lucky. The video game industry is always changing and I bet you anything that these people will bounce back with new, greater prospects.
What do you guys think of the change in the industry?
