    For months I used the below RSS feed to see only Digital Foundry content (all of it, not just Face-offs):
    http://www.eurogamer.net/?format=rss&topic=digital_foundry

    Today (or maybe yesterday, I do not refresh it everyday) this feed started displaying lots of content unrelated to Digital Foundry. I went to this page http://www.eurogamer.net/rss.php and tried to recreate my DF only feed but was unable to do so. This is especially ironic, considering the following quote from RSS page:
    We've improved our RSS feeds!
    Generate a customised RSS feed on this part of the homepage.

    Thanks to our new filtering system, you can now create RSS feeds for just about anything on the site. Want a feed just for 360 News? PS3 Reviews? DigitalFoundry only? Go for it. Just select the filters you want, and hit the big orange “RSS for this page” button.
    I tried "going for it" but guess what? There is no "Digital Foundry" category. There is only "face-offs" category, but face-offs are just a tiny fraction of Digital Foundry, it does not inlcude hardware reviews, tech interviews, etc, etc.

    I even tried to generate a working link by trial and error and I tried the following URLs, but sadly they did not work:
    http://www.eurogamer.net/?format=rss&type=digital_foundry
    http://www.eurogamer.net/?format=rss&platform=digital_foundry

    Long story short - could you please give me back my Digital Foundry RSS feed?
    A feed that contains ALL articles from this page:
    http://www.eurogamer.net/?topic=digital_foundry

    same here, since today (or possibly yesterday) the url for http://www.eurogamer.net/?format=rss&topic=digital_foundry gets a 301 redirect to http://www.eurogamer.net/?format=rss.

    this is the first non-digital_foundry item that appeared in my reader:
    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/moving-targets-article published at Sun, 13 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0100

    please fix this soon, the feed is unusable in this state for me.

    At least I'm not the only one with the issue!

    I would also like to kindly ask the support team to fix the issue. Thank you!

    This isn't exactly what you wanted, but almost there

    Almost? Not by a long shot! As I previously stated: "face-offs are just a tiny fraction of Digital Foundry, it does not include hardware reviews, tech interviews, etc, etc."
    In the last 11 DF articles there were exactly 2 face-offs, so you would miss 9 other articles. Not exactly "almost there".

    Anyways, the point's moot because EG staff promptly fixed it, so kudos to them.

    I'm using feedly and it still isn't working for me. I also can't find a digital foundry rss section in the rss links anymore. Can someone provide me with one?

    @nickwan got same issues here, but look like it's at Feedly-side now.

    Temporary fix it for myself by addind new RSS-url to Feedly over the proxy:
