From 4/25 thru today's, it's been the same newsletter with different dating in the upper right corner...

Leisure Suit Larry funded, STALKER 2 cancelled, etc...

Anyone else getting this problem?

Me

Me too, getting the same content each day; "Leisure Suit Larry remake funded, STALKER 2 cancelled, Star Trek for WiiU, etc.."


I got the same issue about the same time last year - kept getting the "Shippin' Out June 12-18: Duke Nukem Forever" newsletter.After a few weeks it miraculously fixed itself, go figure...

Same thing here, like one week old news, the date seems to update also, like today's newsletter came with today's date, but content from one week ago, maybe a litter earlier then that.

I posted it on this support forum:http://www.gamespot.com/forums/topic/29155230/newsletter-system-is-broken

Just got it again, dated asMay 07, 2012 but stillLeisure Suit Larry remake fully funded,S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 canceled,Star Trek possible for Wii U - Report...

#8 Posted by cammby (113 posts) -

Yep, still the same. No answers, responses, or fixes for over 2 weeks now.

I really liked looking over the daily newsletters for a brief overview on the recent site additions, but really leaning to just cancelling the newsletter since it's basically just spam anymore.

A better question might be is anyone not having this issue?

#10 Posted by mizifih (127 posts) -

Again, datedMay 08, 2012 but content is the same old thing:

  • Leisure Suit Larry remake fully funded
  • S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 canceled
  • Star Trek possible for Wii U - Report
  • Battlefield dev working on new IP
  • Start/Select - Call of Duty rumours, Crysis 3 announced
  • No Crysis 3 on Wii U - Crytek
  • Next-gen that blocks used would be 'awesome' says Crysis dev
  • The Walking Dead: Episode 1 Launch Trailer

Do I need to stop the newsletter, or is it going to get fixed? I enjoy reading it daily and link back to the site often from the links in the newsletter. Some type of answer from gamespot would be nice.
