Ghostbusters multiplayer is getting a patch- Who's playin that? 
DC Comics joins PSN digital comics- Who buys those?
Sale on XBLA Sonic games- Finally I can play Sonic.
Project Milo still in the works-  
Is it a slow news week then? Just keepin busy?
 
Not a huge complaint or anything, I just hate how I go to Kotaku and scroll down a huge page of nothin then leave. Anyone else notice a lot o dull news hangin around?

You can't have too much news. Also if you don't want to read it, don't. I hate how people are hating on the new guys.

I'm totally fine with it. If you're complaining about too much news, then hide under a rock. You won't get any under there.

I actually like all the news he is posting. Instead of having to go to other sites for news, now I can just stay here for everything video games.

It might be a bit unusual for this site, but I'm sure it'll settle down once he's been here a little bit

So we've settled on New Brad? I thought he was called Brad, and the other one is called Brad Two. That's why we never hear him in Quick Looks or anything. Right?

People have a valid reason for doing so because Giant Bomb's policy used to be that they wouldn't heavily cover the video game  industry and plaster the site with news (if I recall)

It's not a big deal, but I do think that he and Matt are posting a lot of junk.  Crackdown demo hack on the front page?  Meh, seems like a good forum topic.

Funny how no one complained when they kept this site alive during E3, now there's no big stories you want them to stop?
 
Protip: not every week has big news, they have to post the small stuff too.

No, but the community is posting too many threads complaining about dumb shit that shouldn't be complained about.

That never was written in a FAQ. Actually, I never recall them saying let's stay small and sample what we believe is pertinent.

OH NOES! TOO MUCH NEWS!
 
At least it's relevant, I like the news he posts, just because it's not on a topic I care about THAT much but it's nice to know what goes on in the gaming world.

The site is growing and so should the news coverage.

I think they said that when GB was only alive for about a week, of course back then they didn't have the time to report on most things, but that was a long time ago now.

Both of these. Now every time I visit the site (multiple times per day), I see a completely new set of news articles on the front page, most of them about insignificant things (like how to play the Crackdown 2 demo indefinitely). And I'm sorry, but I'm not about to sift through all of those in hopes of maybe finding an article written by Jeff, Ryan, Brad or Vinny.
 
If I had the option to filter out Matt's and Brick's news articles, I'd be happy.

Ghostbusters Multiplayer is getting a patch- Who's playin that?: Sometimes I am, when I'm bored.
DC Comics joins PSN digital comics - Who buys those?: Again, I do, sorry almighty person.
Sale on XBLA Sonic Games- Finally I can play Sonic: And so can a ton of people who are interrested in it
Project Milo still in the works: Good to know for people who might be interrested in that techdemo (remember the PS1 T-rex? That was great)

  
I wouldn't call it a slow news week since as you can clearly see there's a lot of news.  
They're just not amazing news, and also his name is not "New Brad" it's Fake Brad. :D 
  
Only thing I really dislike about both Fake Brad and Matt 'house-you-get-drunk-in' Kessler is their forced attempts at funny news stuff. 
Forcing dumb jokes out that aren't even close to being funny instead of just going with whatever pops up in their heads. 
 
Or maybe that is actually what's popping up in their heads and their heads are just not working all too great.

I bet that the OG crew posted stuff under BradN's name just to see what bias you all are.

This. Before this "new Brad" that everyone seems to complain about I had to go to other sites for news now I can stay at this site (except that I still go to gamasutra for business news).

It just pushes all the videos and important articles off the home page.
