    I didnt look at anything other than a glance at the home page...

    Im sure they are using a serverside language like PHP...
    Not necessarily any scripts that were purchased or downloaded somewhere, probably just something they wrote themselves...

    Just read their help page :)

    What powers Giant Bomb?

    Giant Bomb is powered by an in-house, structured wiki platform designed specifically for and by Whiskey Media.

    The "Whiskey Powered" platform benefits from the following open source technologies:

    Django - A python based web framework.
    Postgres - Database.
    Solr - A java powered search engine based off Lucene.
    MooTools - A javacript framework.
    YUI editor - The Yahoo UI wysiwyg editor.
