@fattony12000: well, I live in Norway so that would be HUNDREDS of dollars in mere shipping... so I only buy the ones I really want.

It kinda took me by surprise actually. I'm not sold on the hype yet, but once I see some gameplay I'll probably be all over it. The fact that Rocksteady is back with a Batman is awesome though, as is the fact that Kevin Conroy will reprise his role.
They are both equally debilitating, I hope you find a more permanent solution to your problem. Do you have a chronic migraine problem or is it more come and go?
For the question I think I'd choose migraine... though there really isn't a good answer here.
Anyone who manages people knows you praise in public, and discuss deficiencies in private. When you have something nice to say, tell everyone, and tell them often. When it's not so nice, then talk to only that specific person or group privately. All too often, when there is something deserving of praise here, like a good story or incisive review people overlooked just saying 'good job'. On the other hand, when there is something (or someone) to criticize at Giant Bomb we are vocal ass-hats about it, and it is often done in front of everyone in the forum. In the past few months we have seen dozens of forum posts asking, "Why is no one working harder?" or "Why is it not the same?" But, guess what? What Giant Bomb staff do work hard, and accusations: "Why aren't you working harder?" just are not ever appropriate. Those type of statements put everyone on the defensive and creates an unpleasant, if not depressing, working environment.
We should limit these discussion to what we like, "I like ________" and "________ works for the show" or "I'd like to see more ________ on the front page or covered" If you don't like something send an e-mail privately. People somehow think complaining about what they don't like is somehow a intelligent way to make change, it just gets people who work hard frustrated and is really less productive to make change. Also, sop many people here make the criticisms personal by insulting the staff and their work. There are times when we might 'feel' like pointing out flaws in others to make ourselves look or feel better, but hese are not the times to pull the trigger on your criticism gun.
We all need to start talking more about what we LIKE! Believe me, they will understand if A, C, F is what people like, than B, D, E, are less well liked. Moreover, they watch what gets clicked most, they see what news stories generate views, and they see what people listen to all week. They know what is working, so give them a chance or bring it up in a polite e-mail. Better yet, just say what you do like because that is what will work.
You said it mate. There are some matters raised in this topic that are important, but people can be a little hostile at times.
I think Jeff's commutes with Dave is more interesting content than those because it's actually got discussion about current events. It's just a shame that most people don't know about it.
Well now I do, this is great. So many commutes to go through... thanks duder!
