GameSpot's facing the end of the line...

...And try to deny it. While having a slow, and extremely flawed start - Giantbomb so far does everything what GameSpot does better. And to be honest, in the past few days GameSpot has really died out. Not that everyone's gone. It's gone drastically down, so bad that most'll notice. But, back to business...

...And it goes on.

Though, I can't access any Javascript related pages. Like, I can't make or see any comments on anyone's blog. Can't delete anything on this page. For some reason the image in the about me section only appears 40%, etc.

I mean, I'm gonna stick with GameSpot as a priority. I just wonder; How long?

Yeah, I love the freedom of posting to all sorts of sections here.

I am enjoying this site and I wonder why you can't post or see comments.  That is odd indeed.

Posted by Player1

yep using safari lets you make comments. I agree with all your points about gamespot dieing as well. This site just does it better

Yea man. It is definitely noticeably empty. It's really weird...

But more than that, the video was epic. Thanks for sharing it. Now I must show it to all my friends :D

It's such a shame to see a site I have been using for so long be rendered all but useless as soon as GB comes along, but the rigidity and failure to make significant changes has caused GS's own downfall. Once the majority of the GS community migrates to here, this will become my main gaming site.

Yeh i agree, even without Giant Bomb's arrival, Gamespot was dying. I mean, i used to check it daily, and i'd use it above IGN, but now i'm afraid i use ign a lot more, and now Giant Bomb even more than that.

Giant Bomb does offer a lot of stuff that GameSpot didn't, I have to agree.

It seems like both web sites are saying the same thing about each other.

Posted by zdmetal2101

This site is going to get a lot better as it grows.

Posted by Death_Burnout

Oh i couldnt agree more, especially with all those points you made

Posted by BlastProcessing

Silly Rabbit, Gamespot is for...Well, you know.

Posted by Tru3_Blu3

That video was freaking epic.

Dude... I feel bad for posting on this site, because I started out on GameSpot, and to see it turn in to shit so fast is kind of hard to watch.
