Getting the same thing on my iPhone 4 running iOS 6.0.1.
If I tap proceed anyway it just takes me back to the Giant Bomb homepage and then trying to log in a second time leads me to the same warning page.
I had the same issue on my android phone.
I did a little test of the SSL for the site, not sure if shows the error or not.
The one with an F rating is issued to auth.whiskeymedia.com. I'd trust it based on the domain it was issued to, but yeah that really needs to be fixed.
I just tried it on my mobile browser and came across this issue. The cerificate is issued by GoDaddy. According to GoDaddy this problem has something to do with an intermediate certificate not being installed. I don't know what that means or if it's actually relevant.
Looks like auth.giantbomb.com isn't sending the intermediate certificate.
The certificate chain (as reported by Chrome on my PC) looks like this: auth.giantbomb.com -> Go Daddy Secure Certification Authority -> Go Daddy Class 2 Certification Authority
However, auth.giantbomb.com sends only the first certificate. While chrome on android knows about the last certificate, it doesn't seem willing to go and find the intermediate certificate on its own so it can't validate the first certificate.
This is in contrast to https://www.godaddy.com which sends both the first and intermediate certificates in its response.
This page explains the problem in more detail (as well as why it's a problem with the site rather than the accessing device): https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=6657
