Quoted for Truth

The new live show featuring GameSpot Editors Brendan Sinclair, Tom Mcshea , and John Davidson , the LIVE news discussion show where they engage in polite argument and occasional snark about video game news.

Nope simply tweet us at #GSQFT with your questions, comments, queries, and moral objections. What will they be talking about this week on Quoted for Truth? Diablo, Artsy PS3 owners, Super Meat Boy, $99 Xbox, and more, for the full line up check out this link here .

More Site Changes

Aside from the recent commenting system upgrade and the game boards , there’s even more! These features include a much improved Google based search functionality which will allow you to actually find what you’re looking for in under a second. You may then sort by plenty of other option.

We’ve also released our new mobile site that works in tandem with the main site. To check this out, go to m.gamespot.com.

Good Spam Filter; QFT has some potential.

wow...have you all just been ignoring the overall ire of the community, or just okay with releasing buggy 'upgrades'?  come on now, don't spit on my cupcake and tell me it's frosting.  If you don't want community participation, congratulations, mission accomplished.

 @pokecharm I assume you're referring to Blogs, User Reviews, Videos, and of course Soap Box feature. Since you're incredibly insightful and knowledgeable about these issues I'm curious about what "buggyness" your experiencing with the new features. I'll send you a PM and we can talk in more detail. Or you can take said olive branch, throw it at me and say "Forget you", your call.

 @Synthia you know, for the longest time I really thought the lyrics were 'Forget You' - I blame Glee, leading me down the wrong path...
