Chat was been mostly not working at all today during the events. Sometimes it will load but then only work for few minutes before it stops updating. If I refresh the page it is 20/80 vs loading/not loading chat at all.
The site, like every other game related site out there, is getting hit with almost unprecedented traffic, even by E3 standards. NeoGAF has been out all day, IGN has gone down a few times, as has Kotaku, Joystiq, and Polygon.
Jeff just informed the chat that their equipment got stolen, and that they're looking into their options. There may or may not be a stream tonight because of this. Keep an eye on staff twitter accounts, particularly Jeff's, for more details. This fucking blows.
