In the strangest way. I completely agree. My story with GB almost reads like yours exactly. I just find it so odd of the lack of cool features like "This No Game" and so many others from the early era. ain't
More than not I feel like what made the early site to great was the "Whiskey Media" aspect of it all. It felt like we were all a part of something, an inner circle of cool people and awesome sites that worked well apart but were just awesome together. After the CBS move, it just feels a little dower. Earlier this year I actually pulled my long running 5 buck per month subscription. Oddly, I felt terrible about it because I felt like I had developed some sort of relationship with the guys. Yep, I know this all sounds crazy to say about game reviewers on a video game site.
However, if there is something that is up with the guys, or the business structure of the site I just wish one of the guys would say something. I just feel like we would all pitch in financially to help make the site awesome again.
Okay okay, whine over. I still love this site and the bombcast is still one of the brightest parts of my week. Also, for the record Klepek did not ruin anything, I find his work to be some of the best anywhere, I just wish some of the site design would reflect how great it is similar to how news stories are laid out on Polygon. (and yes, I know the new design is on the way)
