This! It is a small complaint, but even for archived games you have to manually fast forward through the "intermission" screen. It is really my major complaint. It's a simple algorithm to skip that screen. Right now to skip it I have to download the stream to MythTV and use MythTV's screen skipping feature. Otherwise I absolutely LOVE GameCenter Live. It will only get better - for example, Microsoft Silverlight 5 has added some seriously amazing playback features built-in that competitors will take advantage of, which will in turn force NeuLion to add these features to their Adobe Flash Player or switch to Silverlight.

My other complaint, which was also briefly touched in this thread, is how they upgrade the Android phone app. It's totally stupid.
