Wow... the achievement tracking and signature were really the only reason I used this site. When it was hinted that it was maybe going to be a premium feature I was ready to pony up. Thank goodness I waited.

I guess I'll need to find another site that provides this feature :(

It's real sad to hear people say that. Only comming here to show off....

It's almost as sad as people making assumptions as to why someone does what they do isn't it?

FYI - I do not use the site to "show off" as you say... I use the site as information for my friends. I only use the signature on ONE site, and that is a private forum that I run for my friends from my high school days. We are spread all over now, married with children etc... and use the site to keep in touch and plan our annual "once a year" gathering. We all game, and use the signatures so that we each can see what we are each playing. It's very convenient because it ties all my platforms (PS3, 360, Steam) together in one nice package. Most of my friends use sigs from Playfire, but I preferred Giant Bomb as it seemed to load faster.

But hey, thanks for making the assumption...

I'm in the same boat... which is disappointing. I really like the Giant Bomb site, but the #1 feature for me is the combine gamerscore of my accounts. My Xbox is frozen (unless I remove and add) and PSN isn't working at all. My gamercard on Playfire, however, is still updating daily.

That's just it... I think they did an amazing job already with their story, I don't see the need to add the names of these people into the game. The NEWS media is where the names should belong - it's their domain. It's not a video game's domain. I personally think it takes away from what was otherwise a spectacular game.

I removed and re-added my PSN and now it is stuck "updating" :(

Robert Pickton is also in there, as is Jeffrey Dahmer. When I picked up Karla's I was like "maybe a coincidence?" - then I picked up Pickton and I was like "wtf are the developers trying to say? Why use serial/mass murderers in this game? Why immortalize these people?" The game was already grim enough, not sure this move was necessary?

Psygnosis will always have a place with me. I have spent hours playing their games... sad to see a giant go like this.

But the guys at Ouya were pushing the fact OnLive was on their platform as a HUGE thing? I guess the Ouya couldn't save OnLive?

(yes... said very tongue in cheek :P)

Going down? Wasn't this one of the "big news" clients that the Ouya was touting?

Velociraptor. Although deceptive, then usually don't come in groups larger than 2 or 3.
