I was bummed, I really wanted atleast one error 37 or 'whooops, the fuse was too short' joke in the 404 or 500 pages... Next time... Next time...

You guys shouldn't ever have to apologize. The amount of hard work you put into this site shows and it is the reason you stand tall above the rest of game journalism sites. Honest opinions and real talk go a long way. Thank you for shining a little light into peoples day and respecting your viewers, it goes a long way!

Site works great. Thanks for all the hard work!

Yeah, serious kudos to you duders. I was plagued by login issues Saturday night, but I was actually kinda hoping it would happen to me, just so I could say I was "caught up in the crossfire."

I tried to get a laugh out of it, but I think it back fired and Danny Chi might think I'm a lunatic... or just an asshole.

The new site is awesome and I hope you guys are proud of the work you've done on it. Hiccup or not, this was a hell of an accomplishment, and you have the community's thanks and admiration.

How about the Giant Bomb app? It hasn't worked right for video's in years and now is totally non-functional! Please help!

I'm having similar issues on WP8. Some feedback from the designers would be great as to why videos don't work.

I really don't feel this apology is necessary but thanks for the free two weeks. To be honest I've enjoyed being part of the whole thing, breakdowns and all. It's nice to see it all taking shape.

I would like to see more flight club, random pc game or whatever. But what about me basically going to Youtube for the past 6 months because of terribly slow speeds of trying to either download, stream of buffer video content? I am kind of more concerned about that.

I pay monthly, can I just get a t-shirt instead?

Edited by Glottery

Didn't even notice that many problems myself, so this is totally appreciated! Keep up the good work.

I don't really care for the extra 2 weeks, I will still get my annual premium membership anyway. Also, the new launch wasn't bad at all. It could have been much worse, and I mean, you have the community with you, so you're allowed a few mistakes here and there anyway :')

And if there's an issue, I never worry because I know... TOP MEN ! THE CASE ! THEY ARE ON IT !

Many of us including myself understand this is no easy task, Dave (and team). Stay on it, and in a very short time we're all going to enjoy a fantastic creation and web site.

Id gladly pay for that 2 weeks to get all the engineers a vacation! Keep up the great work gents.

The secret is safe with me. Good on ya, Dave.

This is so unexpectedly awesome. I too would love to see the return of Random PC Game and Flight Club.

Posted by Foxillusion

I think anyone that subscribes to a website without expecting a certain amount of downtime for maintenance and resolving problems like this is totally fooling themselves,

I don't think this is necessary but it's really appreciated guys, thank you.

This is what makes Giant Bomb one of the best sites on the Internet.

The best.

Posted by williamflipper

Super Cool, thanks

Posted by developerjoe

I don't even care if there were/are issues. I know you guys care about your site and the community and are doing the best you can. I gladly shell out my cash to support this even when I can't access it (which I can now because you are excellent.)

I didn't pay! ~ I'm on the save all money plan. Mm..

A true gentleman. Big props to Dave and the rest of the team! When the site is up, it's awesome! :P

Edited by MachoFantastico

Surprised! Have to say I noticed little disruption to my usual Giantbomb viewing (which is daily, and a lot). However I'm grateful for the kind gift Dave. Loving the new site.

Posted by Vigorousjammer

OH SHIT! DAVE'S A REPLICANT!

Posted by PimblyCharles

Is anyone that's using a Windows Phone (WP8 in my case) having issues getting videos to play on the new site? I can't get them to play at all.

Also, thanks for the extra 2 weeks!

Posted by MrNood1e

Totally not necessary, but thank you. The new site is fantastic. Keep up the good work, guys!

Posted by shodan2020

I appreciate the extension. Thanks guys, your hard work is noted and I love the new layout and look of the site! I can't wait until we get Blade Runner taken care of too! :)

Posted by Archr5

Adding my voice to the choir.

New site is awesome, well worth the downtime.

Posted by FancyMonkey

You didn't have to do that, but it's appreciated!
So thanks and keep up the good work!

Posted by chrispti
