@rockyraccoon37: I have the same specs as you, is the game totally unplayable? Even on medium or low?

Dude, we can't post links directly because this is subscriber-only content. We covered this above.

Ah! It works for the 'High' quality (code 1800), but not HD (code 4000).

That trick isn't working for me. :-( It says Failed - Network error.

I also actively avoid Quick Look EX, I always feel like the GB team are censoring themselves in those videos.

I absolutely love Giantbomb, I've been enjoying all the content for years. I love the site, the reviews, and of course all the video content. I'm a premium subscriber, so I see the site without any ads, but occasionally I visit the site without logging in and see what it looks like for 'normal' users and it sure is a different experience.

I understand the site has to generate the duckets to keep the lights on, and I imagine it's pretty expensive to host the long form video content that GB does. But at a certain point, is there not a fear of turning away some segment of the audience because of the diminished user experience?

Many of my friends, while avid gamers, avoid the GB main site now because of how it feels and consume GB content only through YouTube. Maybe that's fine, they're still generating views, but GB is missing out on potential premium subscribers. Or maybe my friends are just peculiar.

Does anyone else think this is maybe an issue?

I did one better, I plotted the scores over the duration of the game. The main graph is for coins over time, the inset is for stars.

Is there any way to play Red Alert 2 online anymore, now that GameSpy is down? Does Origin have any sort of service for that?

Any word if there will be a UPF tonight? I know a load of equipment is getting sent back in a truck, so I wouldn't be too surprised if they skip this week - but it'd be good to know so I can plan my evening!

I have this issue too
