It seems like there's much more focus on video content in the redesign compared to the current design. That's not a bad thing. That's just the way the internet is trending today.
The front page is a little awkward and could use some condensing. I share the sentiment that the top portion takes up way too much space. You have to scroll down to see anything other than the latest video because it takes up so much space.
Also, Giant Bomb is much more than just a video website. There's great podcasts, forums, and an entire video game wiki, yet none of that is being showed off on the front page; it's hidden away in tabs at the top of the page while videos take up three quarters of the real estate. I think condensing the videos down and adding more to the front page would be worthwhile.
