When I attempt to use browse games it's impossible to do so. Lets say I want to look up all PSP games alphabetically, here's the process of what happens:

1. Click on "Alphabetical" tab and get sent to: http://www.giantbomb.com/games/?sort=alphabetical

2. Click on the drop down and select "PSP" and get sent to http://www.giantbomb.com/games/?platform=PSP

3. Step 2 disregarded alphabetical and went back to Major 2010 PSP games, which there are none of. So maybe click on the "Alphabatical" tab again. This will send you back to http://www.giantbomb.com/games/?sort=alphabatical disregarding the PSP game selection.

The problem just goes in a circle. The same happens with any tab.

Almost three weeks ago at this point I purchased one year of premium membership through the store using PayPal. The payment went to a cbsinteractive.com PayPal account so I figured it went to the right place and everything but it's going on three weeks and nothing has been applied. I replied to a topic about a 2 weeks ago hoping to get a response, the only thing I was told was to message snide on get things sorted out, which I did the same day. At this point I'm starting to get a little annoyed... Who do I need to talk to to have this fixed?

it kinda makes me want to play this game more because not only do you get a game, but if you play it enough to get really cool stuff, then it could potentially pay for itself

Here's the reality of it. People in China, where it's profitable or equivalent compared to other jobs, will play Diablo III full time with high level characters killing the monsters that drop the items that people want. If you find a valuable item and list it on the AH you will need to pay a fee with real money in order to list the item. The person in China with 20 of the same item can under cut you by 5 cents and the average buyer will buy it from the lowest easiest price, without considering yours. You'll then need to take your item down as under cutting happens a few times and if your smart you'll only be out the first fee before you give up and realize the system is retarded. Otherwise you'll repeat the process and the only one making true profit is Blizzard.

Alright, so you don't take part in the AH, you're then only limited to your close friends who don't take part in the system unless you want to feel weak by random people joining your game with the best loot they bought for relatively cheap, because they spent 20 bucks and bought awesome gear that they have no rights to actually owning.

Oh you want to build up an awesome character to PVP with later? Nope, out of luck, someone bought the better gear then you. What do you do then? You either buy something to feel even or throw the game in the garbage where it belongs. As long as this system remains fuck Diablo III.

the auction houses are regional. ownt.

First, welcome to the internet, I'm sure you'll like it. Second, look at StarCraft which is regioned, the highest level players of StarCraft own a copy for every single region they would like to play in. You can use Virtual Private Networks to choose which ever region you would like to connect if it's restricted by IP address. That's only the example you may be aware of. Even if I wanted to go play an Asian game which often require proof that you live in the country I'm often able to join the community if I find the right website to sign up for me.

There is no reliable way to prevent people who wish to play in another region from doing just that.

Wow, that's smart. Make a shitty game and blame the franchise for the failure and not the fact that you can't make a good follow up. Gee gee.

Video pages don't work any more between sessions. Previously if you middle clicked on a page number in the endurance run category it would load a page where the endurance run was open and it was page number what ever. Now if you middle click on page numbers it appends "?page=5" to the end of your current url which will bring you to the fifth page of video comments.

Any time I've developed an AJAX application it's always been at the top of my list to make sure it will work if javascript was disabled, it seems like you somewhere along the lines just said "Fuck it, Javascript or nothing".

Tweet link don't work, it just goes to http://twitter.com/home?status=

Also, I debiggened http://www.giantbomb.com/whiskey-media-happy-hour-061011/17-4404/ and rebiggened it, when I did it was playing Quick Look: Jamestown, though under the video it showed "Whiskey Media Happy Hour...". I have no exact process to recreate the bug, I had tried the size change to fix the bug that happens if you leave the video player open for a few hours without playing the video and the play icon gets stuck in the middle.
