Hey Folks,

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?

Anyone pick this one up and give it a go now that it's officially released? Any hope of a QL about this game? I'm curious to know if its any good.

Could someone explain to me what the hell is even going on? All is see is a lot of apologies on twitter over something.

Yes please... what exactly IS the deal?

It would be awesome if Vinny and Alex created a series of videos like the original. Any word on if that's a possibility? If so - what should be included?

Now that Vinny is going to move to NY permanently, will he no longer appear on the bombcast or will they try to skype/hangout him in? How about with Alex? will there now be two separate podcasts?

The Advanced Edition update for the fantastic FTL: Faster Than Light is now available as a free download on PC.

Users who own the game on Steam should get the update beamed automatically onto their hard drives using Gaben's special magic powers, and the game's developers have created a page with instructions for those who purchased the game from another outlet.
