I could do that, or I could bitch on the forum to get some sort of explanation. I didn't realize that Pokémon species and character types were considered valid concepts, I thought people were just point-mining, but I was wrong and see the error of my ways. I shall now dedicate my life to spreading the one true word of Brad, who knows all.

The entire concept section needs to be run through with a fine-tooth comb because there are way too many things there that are not concepts (either that or I'm really not understanding the concept behind a "concept"). Fitting concepts such as "Multiple Endings" and "Silent Protagonist" is hidden behind the myriad of Pokemon species added and the "Fat Hobo" from Penny Arcade Adventures. Are those concepts or are they characters? And do we really need to mention EVERY GOD DAMNED HALO 3 ENEMY??? Perhaps there should be some form of reprimand for getting your stuff deleted? Not when it's rejected (as people can try to add something without fear of death), but you should lose the points you gained if your submission is deleted. Is this how it works? I hope so, because whomever is constantly spamming the concepts section with NPCs and objects (I saw a gun in there somewhere... how can a gun be a concept) needs to get the hell off my gaming site*.

I'm not sure this has been handled before, but I was wondering if it would be possible (or IF it is possible) to add an entire franchise to the "Similar Games" section. Say, if a game is similar to the Final Fantasy games, I would like to add the entire franchise, not go through the whole list of games and add every single one... or is this a foolish idea thinking that, for example, the Final Fantasy franchise has a few more releases than just the standard JRPG (like the tactics games). I'm not sure if I just answered my own question and shot myself in the metaphysical foot, but I feel that the community should consider this.

I'm really looking forward to people adding tons of hentai-based concepts like "Gravity-Defying Breasts", "Tentacles" and "Violent Non-Consensual Penetration".
As much as I want GB to be an all-encompassing games database, I would feel a little dirty if these things were added.

But... isn't Opera a standards-compliant browser? How can it be different from FF when both of them follow the W3C standards...?

Perhaps it just hasn't been implemented yet.

Hey, I was looking around the web for a Giant Bomb firefox search plugin, but coulnd't find one, so if you anyone wants one here you go:http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=giant+bomb

Also, if the Giant Bomb staff want, it can be added to their page using this line in the <head> section:
<link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" title="Giant Bomb" href="/link/to/whatever/giantbombsearch.xml">

Jesus, I really miss a "preview" button on this forum.

Edit: Added the search engine to the Mycroft Project, to save myself some bandwidth. My version available here for posterity or if anyone wants to check the "source code".

I am optimistic (at best), but if it's anything like City of Heroes then that's just a good thing. I wonder if the heroes will be like the bosses in raids so if you're a villain you can go beat up Batman.
