I think that expecting news content from Giant Bomb at all is missing the point. I can go elsewhere for gaming news--hell, I can go a multitude of places that just regurgitate the same press releases and trailers. The reason I come to GB is for the video content and the personality of the guys.
I agree. GB doesn't need news.
There are dedicated video game news blogs that will surely be covering the same stories and more. What is the point of GB duplicating content you can already find elsewhere? There is none. Instead they should focus on what makes them unique, which is what they have been doing.
