So I love the redesign from last year or so, but one thing that keeps messing with me is the top pull down menus. I, like many I'm sure, keep multiple tabs going in my browser. When I switch tabs to the GB video playing and mouse down on my touchpad it inevitably always opens the drop down menu in a way that when i click to unpause a video or pause it i end up navigating to whatever random category or video got pulled down. Anyone else have this issue? Maybe having a delay on those opening of even half a second of hover might prevent it. It's minor but it definitely happens enough i felt compelled to write about it here.

@rorie: Will do. Heading out for vacation but I'll try to remember that. Thanks for responding. The site is so great so I try to prefer using everything here instead of youtube. Keep up the great work!
@rorie: I don't think I've ever even been to Gamespot thinking about it now. So no I wouldn't have that as a frame of reference.
For a couple of months now playback on videos has been very frustrating. Constant stop and buffers sometimes requiring full reloads of the page and then still waiting. Today i tried to skip to the point of 80s songs video and it just buffers for minutes on end with no video forth coming. I'm on a windows 10 laptop with updated chrome. I've been having to watch all non premium videos on youtube just so i can get through them with out large buffer times. Streams work fine, all y other streaming sources have no issues. Just Giant bomb. Love you guys and the content but the player seems to really be suffering since you guys switched to cloud.
The most recent Bombcast premium video was very steppy and was buffering way more than usual sometimes several times a minute today. I had a solid connection and other video sites were loading without issues over the same time period.
Yah, I've been playing a ton too. I can't get 3 stars I feel like you need the premium woefully overpriced guys to even come close. I've gotten 85% with Hoodrick and 83% with Bardur on crazy vs 2 enemies, but the asking for 95% is way too high. You have to take out both civs in 30 turns without lose more than like 10 units on crazy. Even with amazing starting that's near impossible from my findings. The best strategy for all civs I've found for domination is to get a civ with a special unit (Hoodrick archers are great, Bardur i think has shields which are good and one has riders to start). Don't get the swords civ even though ti's tempting. 5* per unit is too expensive early on and you won't be able to produce enough. Then rush riding if you don't have it to get as many cities settled as possible. Wide play is a huge advantage in domination. Tall can be okay in perfection but still not as good as wide there. The rush to shields for the next unit. After you have shields and riders and maybe archers depending on your starting civ start to grow your cities. Hopefully you have 3 at least. Get them to 3 pop each minimum and 4 for your edge cities to get the walls going. If you're an island nation start building ports as well. Then head to an elite unit. If you're facing naval civ, swordsmen, or shields get catapults. If it's riders, archers, or warriors get knights. Knights are amazing because you can kill infinite units in a turn provided they all have low defense and are connected together. After that build you cities up to get some giants and kill kill kill. Few late game tips. Lumberyards are tempting early and if you have to use them but in the end it's better to get chivalry and burn the forests to create farms and place windmills. Build roads right before your elite units, or as soon as you get them from a ruin. And if you're fighting in the water or mountains a lot the defensive sciences for each is very powerful. Highly suggest it. Oh and only get whaling if you see two whales already in you borders, and do it immediately if you see it. They're worth lots of *s
