Occasionally I'll go there for news or something, but it's a hassle because I can't log in anymore and customer support wasn't very helpful. Also, these boards are more entertaining so I don't really need to go back to those forums. Actually, I think I'll make one last post.

Nah, I've always prefered IGN actually. What made Gamespot was their video reviews from the guys here...go figure.

Yah, haha. I'm the leader of a popular union there.

On Gamespot, I have 15,000 posts, and I've only really been posting actively for the last year.

I do to watch videos. Giant Bomb has a great community but as far as game journalism goes, it is pretty lacking.

When I go it's usually just by accident. I click on it after I type "G" in the address bar - GiantBomb and Gamespot are beside eachother.

Nope, haven't been since this place "officially" launched. Like the reviewers better here, like the forums better (already.)

Nothing against GS or the people there or anything, it just changed drastically over the last year or so and feels completely different, not really my cup of tea anymore.

Yes except I'm still fucking suspended for saying "Stop making these threads please..." in a fad thread 4 days before the suspension. Not to mention it's supposed to be for one day except it's nearing the end of the second already...

Being a person that talks about Blu Ray vs DVD in System Wars.

Just because they locked the first topic doesn't mean they can't discuss it!

I enjoy their video reviews, and occasionally Tournament TV. Lately I haven't used it too much though.

I'm waiting on the return of Button mashing.

I officially gave up w/ GS when they reviewed Condemed 2. That was just awful - if anything fire the guy that "reviewed" all he did was stand around in a cloak and list the different weapons you used and the review ended.

Not my fault they use a team of mildly retarded incompetent moderators.
Oh wait - discussing differences in hardware in the System Wars board is banable.

Yes, but not for the forums.


For the videos, the inside (and not-so-inside) coverage, the "critics reviews" section (good for knowing what people think of games in general), and for a few other things that I can't think of right now.

Video reviews are made of win.

Like Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, with Ryan!
I was quite pissed off when I could only watch the first thirty seconds of the Odama video review (Ryan again!)...

I used to a bit, but not anymore.  The community is just nicer here and this is really just a better site. 

I do like their live interview game thingies.  On the spot.  Wish they had one here. It lost its touch at gamespot when the guys left.
