I am a reasonable man. I only want what is fair.

The Holiday Sale includes hundreds of popular (and unpopular?) games on sale! All manner of stuff to get for your beloved, hated, or friend or otherwise.
Every day there will be flash sales, so be sure to keep an eye on that section. Something you are waiting for could drop like a rock in price!
Also, a bundle of games will be showcased on the home. New bundles are planned throughout the two weeks of sales.

I say, if there's sufficient cash for it, go for #3. If not, kill the IMG site and kill the MGS forums and merge the IMG forum with the MGS.
An active, friendly community forum for a dead news site and a dead forum for an active retail store site, all run by the same entity, makes extremely little sense both from a business and a workload perspective. I would like to see IMG survive, but if worse comes to worst, taking the active site and pairing it with the active forum seems the best option.
EDIT: And if you DO do that... for the love of all that is holy, don't just tell everyone here to move. This place's long history of discussion and problems solved makes it a cornucopia for searches. That's a big asset.

PC Gamer reviewed it: http://www.pcgamer.c...tarships-review and concluded "Get a cardboard box, paint it silver, sit in it and pretend you’re Kirk. There, we just saved you some cash."

Anybody that wants to write reviews or news I can add to their own group for the permissions. I've already created the IMG Writers group, I can adjust their perms to create new threads in the IMG News section, anyone can post a reply. That group is simple to duplicate as an IMG Reviewers group. One person can have perms for both forums or just one depending. This is all junk I've done before. I hate to see the news and reviews go. That is good stuff because the writers are real gamers and not industry todies.

You could mail me your reviews and I could scan them in, though.

That said, I do not agree that Yosemite would be the worst version of OS X in that matter. It's the worst released after Snow Leopard, but there were definitely worse OS X releases before that. Part of the problem seems to be that Apple does not really seem to bother any more with fixing bugs: Yosemite still has bugs that first reared their ugly head in Lion (like this one), and I guess the current amount of problems is mostly a matter of pure accumulation over the years. That Yosemite changed more than the previous releases, and thus having more opportunity to introduce new problems certainly didn't help.
My biggest hope for OS X 10.11 would be that Apple does for Mac OS the same what they are apparently planning for iOS 9: a Snow Leopard style upgrade with no (or few) new features, and a focus on bug fixes and performance improvements.
My opinion regarding iTunes 12 is quite similar: it's not really good, but not as bad as some make it. For the most part, the changes to iTunes 11 aren't that big. I'm p*ssed that Apple has removed the option to sync bookmarks with iDevices for good, though (which surprisingly seems to bother almost no one else).
The Mac App Store is another example of Apple seemingly not caring anymore. In the four years since its inception, there have been virtually zero improvements to it. It's a pain in the arse to use, and it's a pain in the arse to troubleshoot.
And regarding the new Photos: I dabbled with it for 10 minutes or so, before coming to the conclusion that it will not supplement, let alone replace Aperture for anytime soon. I'm not even sure if it could properly replace iPhoto.
On the topic of Apple's hardware, I'm getting increasingly discomfortable with the direction they are developing. For long years, Apple took pride in building machines that not only looked good, but also were well serviceable. I clearly remember a Steve Jobs Keynote where he introduced a new PowerBook (I think) and spent several minutes talking about how easy it would be to swap memory and the hard drive. The above mentioned G4 Cube was not their easiest serviceable machine, but the ease with that you could get to its innards was testament to Apple's design approach.
And now we get an ultra-thin Macbook, that might look sleek, but is underpowered, has a crappy keyboard, a single port and is basically built to be a disposable product. Design over functionality.

Now, if only my backlog wouldn't be so huge…
