In light of the recent games (AC5, Halo, etc) being shipped with game breaking issues, I think Giant Bomb could help call attention to those problems. I made a little mini-mock to show one idea:
This would be an area at the top of the page, only editable by the staff, to alert users to a game's major issues. It would details any game-breaking problem along with the last time this area was updated. It could also include links to the game's support page or forum post.
I think this would go a long way in helping inform people of a game's issue at the time of inquiry about the game - and not just through a news post which could be missed. Certainly another option would be to call forth any news articles about issues for that game as well. Perhaps displayed prominently at the top until the time they've been resolved.
What do you think? Would this type of information be helpful to you and others? Any other ideas?
