I used to recieve email updates of tracked games and feed appeared on my profile. Now I no longer get any of them.

Yeah, what is up with that? I'm not going to lie. Since I don't get updates anymore on Gamespot I don't come to the site as much. I used to check it like 2 times a day, now I only check it like once every 2 or 3 days. I've been a member of this site for over 8 years. This is very disapointing.

currently, game updates do not work for anyone. supposedly they are working on a fix for this, but who know when it might roll out.

Getting game updates was the biggest reason for why I came to GS. Now my only reason is to see if things have been fixed yet. Eventually I'm not even going to bother, cause this new site doesn't offer anything better than other sites.

Also what's with the notifications? It just floods with bs like someone posts a review or blog. I don't care! As long as someone responds to my stuff.

@Gamer_4_Fun: I sent you a Steam friend request. On PSN i'm FireVixen1 I believe. Ever since I got my gaming PC though, I really only play my Vita. Lol. Well at least until I get my PS4. :D

I can't even tag you lol! I'll accept the request and will send you a psn request. I also have a mike in both platforms, so it would be cool if we talk :)

its too bad gamespot doesn't really like to give updates on progress. all that can be done is to have patience. a LOT of it.

Or just find another site, as Gamespot doesn't have anything over the other gaming sites anymore. Other gaming sites are stable and load faster, they also are maintained better overall.

I've been here pretty much the same as you and will not let that affect my judgement. What matters is how poorly they handled this redesign and what the site now offers compared to the competition. I also didn't mean you specifically, my point was that people have more than just the "patience" option.

Exactly, so your "all that can be done is to have patience. a LOT of it." comment is far from being true.

well technically it is true for those that wish to stick around. so it all depends on the person reading the post.

Not true, as a person can still do more than just wait around, they can take a temporary leave and/or complain. So you really should stop posting such limited views on what can or can't be done.

guess so. ill reword it so that it'll sound more like just my opinion, or something more fitting. or maybe ill just stop suggesting patience all together. ill suggest more constructive things such as taking a break from the site, or providing feedback. though I don't know how people will take that. I somehow feel that suggesting a break from the site will be taken negatively. oh well. ill figure something out.

I would stop suggesting patience, as even people that complain are showing some sort of patience by still being here. Might as well try, it's better than just telling people to wait as if they have no choice.
