Was just looking at the main page and realized that despite everything they have done to redesign the website over the years the logo has been the same since the start. Was just wondering what peoples thoughts are on it. Could it use some TLC? Fine the way it is?

At this point in time? It's still good to me, so not now.

Not at all the original one should always stay there, the original one is awesome

Yeah. Needs to be way more dark and gritty, more mature.

It needs some spikes! And a rain cloud floating over its head! Walking away from an explosion but not looking at it!

It's reaching the middle part of the trilogy after all, were the crew go all hardcore and emo.

No, I love it the way it is.

#12 Posted by natetodamax (19231 posts) -

No way!

#13 Posted by SpartanAmbrose (835 posts) -

Never.

#14 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19418 posts) -

Definitely not.

#15 Posted by AngelN7 (2974 posts) -

Yeah the bomb needs to be red with eyebrows a lazy right eye and devil smile ... totally my design

#19 Posted by dudeglove (8718 posts) -

I think it should be renamed altogether to "Crusader's Happy Fun-time Zone"

Dude, no! Never, hands off my Giant Bomb logo.

I'm not really into this thread but as a side note your name still makes me laugh every time.

#22 Edited by CookieMonster (2471 posts) -

Yeah. I reckon it needs a change. They should make a community competition of it. Win some kind of prize for re-designing the logo (buzz_clik would probably win, mind).

Admittedly I'm biased on the topic, but I agree 100%

Not until they've made a belt buckle out of it.

#27 Posted by DonutFever (3591 posts) -

Needs more bloom.

#28 Posted by Dalai (7113 posts) -

I don't see any need to.

#29 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

Hell. No.

#30 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

It looks good as is.

#31 Posted by BeachThunder (12740 posts) -

I don't think it needs to be changed, but it could probably do with some tweaking.

#32 Posted by CitizenKane (10515 posts) -

It's fine the way it is.

War-torn, revenge-driven, and full of anger. Complete with reflection & glare shaders now that it's running on Unreal Engine.

#38 Posted by heat (190 posts) -

that'll work

#39 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4141 posts) -

I never want to see the logo change.

#40 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Are you kidding me?!

#41 Posted by MistaSparkle (2150 posts) -

No way! All the awesome user created stuff would be out of date with old logos!

#42 Posted by I_smell (3929 posts) -

@crusader8463:

Within like the first month I said they should make a better logo. I think this one is dumb and looks like it was made by some guy who isn't really an artist, but uses Illustrator a lot and could probably come up with somethin that looks alright :/

#43 Posted by KZeni (85 posts) -

Here's the logo for the series reboot after people get tired of the dark path that things have been going down.

#44 Posted by niamahai (1394 posts) -

asking whether GB logo should be redesigned is like asking the Pope whether he should redesign the Holy Cross.

#45 Posted by KamikazeCaterpillar (1130 posts) -

HELLO NO! But then again every time I think part of a Whiskey site is perfect they do something to it to make it more awesome so maybe,

#46 Posted by Fezz (445 posts) -

I think it's fine the way it is.

#47 Posted by JackSukeru (6031 posts) -

I still remember seeing it for the first time and thinking it looked so goofy and even amateurish with that weird cartoon bomb as the O.

I have since come to truly love it.

I'd rather see new Bombcast artwork than a new logo.

That'll look great until you start getting texture pop in.
