    Default Am I The Only One To Have Problems With GameSpot.com?

    I used to be a GameSpot Complete member (meaning I was paying for the premium service) but for awhile I was having trouble getting the site to load all the way. I decided I wasn't going to pay for a site that couldn't even get it's full page uploaded so I decided not to renew my membership. It's now been months since I noticed this happening and it's still going on. I have no such trouble with other sites so I doubt it's a problem with my computer. It's not that big a deal overall since I don't check their site out much anymore but I was still wondering...

    Half the time when people post links on GameSpot on this site, I can't open them. My browser says it's not found or not responding. Glad I won't pay for information that I can get for free after a bit of searching.

    I've never had a problem with gamespot in that respect. Sometimes my chache is set up weird (like when I'm at work) so I have to hit refresh for it to recognize that I'm logged in, but I never have a problem with the site otherwise.

    Also, gamespot doesn't charge for information; news, reviews, even the seminal Gamespotting are all free. What you pay for are faster downloads, demos, and way too many videos.

    I thought you also had to pay to access all of their archived reviews.
