I'm wondering if there's any list of Patrik Klepek's news and commentary material that he puts up, like "Worth Reading" or other news stories. As far as I can tell, they show up on the front page of the site, but there's no page where it's all accessible in chronological order. The site has that option for reviews, so why not for news articles and blog-type posts? There's stuff Patrick has written that I'd like to be able to revisit or look up when needed, but I can't figure out any way to do it.
People generally get facts wrong about stuff they're not into. I wouldn't expect anything different. Also, I would say that the facts in question were not especially relevant to Patricks point.
Perhaps someone more in tune with anime might be nice, but then again, part of the appeal of Giantbomb is how well they all relate to eachother. It creates a good dynamic for conversation, like friends hanging out rather than co-workers. Would an anime fan fit in with the Bombsquad?; perhaps not.
Anime is not the only genre for Giantbomb where there's a knowledge gap. They don't cover sports at all. Once you start hiring people as "the sports guy" and "the anime guy", you're on your way to becoming a big site. That's the opposite of what Gerstmann envisioned for Giantbomb.
