Is there any way to list all "Major Games" (large/important games across all platforms) or is anyone maintaining a list like we used to have with the old site before the last redesign?

I really enjoyed perusing that list to either reminisce or catch up on anything I had missed.

I realize a list like that is probably fodder for arguments and such (one of the only decent results I found on google for "major games giantbomb" is someone asking why Journey isn't on the list for 2012), but it's still nice to have.

What's up with all the Heavenly Sword hate... or disinterest as it were? It was a great game, with an awesome story. The animated series released in parts before the game was fantastic:

Nice, I've been waiting for this... but I guess I'll have to wait even longer because I'd prefer it on Vita over PC.

Please don't be EA. I don't want the future Saints Row games to be Origin only.

I'm not playing Dead Space 3 because of that. Pretty petty, eh? =[

@eloj: I used to really love PHP, but I've been spoiled by C#/MVC. No experience with Symfony2, which might be a nice framework though. But Node though... that gets me hot. Too bad I could never convince my wife to move to SF. =[

@AndrewB: NewEgg has been getting games to me the day after release, so it's not too bad. Does Amazon offer $10-$12 off pre-orders?

I grabbed Ragnarok Odyssey already after checking out some previews and watching trailers/gameplay videos.

NewEgg is offering $10 off any any unreleased Vita game. I'm feeling a little reluctant to take a chance on some of these, but I'm interested in them nonethless. Does anyone have a feel for any of these titles or do they developers have proven track records?

It seems like a lot of companies (Sony included) have matured to a point where Sony's response to this could be really interesting. I would love to see them fly this guy out and have him show them what he did and how he did it so that they could head it off at the pass (if possible). That seems like the smartest thing they could do... it's essentially crowd sourcing.

Aside from piracy, I don't see much value in a hacked Vita. The SDK seems to offer developers an outlet for getting anything within reason running on the device.

I loved Nintendo Power so much... subscribed to the Fun Club for like 3 issues and immediately jumped into a Nintendo Power subscription after getting the first issue. I lost interest sometime after Nintendo 64 and let my Nintendo Power subscription expire after ~100 issues or so. Sad news even though it won't have a huge effect on me.
