One Year Ago.....

by on

One year ago, I joined an awesome gaming news website with an equally awesome community. But thanks to this "new and improved" design, that community has drifted away and this place has become a joke.

Thanks a lot, Gamespot, for messing it all up. I hope it was worth it.

Your once proud user, Daniel.

My opinion on the new Gamespot, and how I think it could be improved.

by on

(Note: the following blog is based solely on my opinion and ideas. If you can't respect that and be critical in a civil manner, turn back now.)

So the new design has been out just a day shy of a week, and I have to say that my view of it is the same as the first day I was in the beta: I hate it.

I have various reasons why I see little if any improvement in this new design. I apologize to the designers of this if I have offended you. I appreciate your efforts, but I can't help but feel that this site is inferior to the previous one. The main reason for my dislike of this site is it feels like they've focused more on the new looks and navigation than the community. The community is the only reason I use this site exclusively and why I don't have accounts on any other video game news website. if it weren't for them, I would have left here the first day this new design was released.

So here are a couple of things I think the new site could improve and make this place much better for community interactions.

1. Make the feed system more like Fuse. Now I realize that Fuse wasn't used by that many people on the previous site, but I honestly believe that it was a good way to keep up with your friends activities and make new friends. With Fuse, you could see who posted a new blog or review or just see what they've been up to. I think if they introduced a commenting system, an archive so you can see updates from previous days and a public-post page similar to Fuse's What's Hot, it would be a major improvement.

2. Bring back emoticons. This isn't really a huge thing I miss, but I do think it would be nice to have it back just to make comments a little less bland. Emoticons were good to use if we didn't feel like making a sentence sound like we were mad/upset/angry.

3. Community-made editorials on the homepage. This was actually the feature that inspired me to make this account in the first place. I found this blog written by zyxe and thought it would be fun to leave a comment on there and see what kind of play styles other users used. And to be honest and absolutely no offense intended towards many of Gamespot's awesome editors and writers, I preferred most of the editorials written by community members then those by the staff.

That's all I have for this blog. Leave a comment down below and please share any ideas or opinions you have. Feel free to call me out on any of my bullsh*t if you want, but as I said above please be civil about it.

Until next time.

Daniel.

Fuse is gone....

by on

So Fuse is gone, and for that I'm pretty bummed out. And bored.

So, after about two days of agonizing boredom from not being able to annoy you poor souls on Fuse, I have decided to type this blog to remember Fuse and to share opinions on the new Gamespot site.

So what do you guys and gals think of the new site? Do you like it or dislike it? What would you change about it if you could?

I personally think the new site has a lot to improve on. I wish they weren't taking so many features away and merging everything else. I like how the current site has several seperate features instead of a whole bunch of them crammed up into one. The new site just feels to cluttered.

Come on, Microsoft. Spill it already.

by on

So if any of you have been on Gamespot for the past couple of days, you'll know that the thing everyone is talking about is Microsoft's recently-announced Xbox One. So far we've been told some nasty things that gamers aren't too happy about. We've been told that Microsoft's new Kinect 2.0 will be a required part of the console and play a much larger role than it's current-gen predecessor. We've been told that used games will require a fee of some kind. We've been told that it will function more like a all-in-one mediabox than a gaming system. And we've been told that video games may require a daily check in for authenticity.

But what we haven't been told is the details. Microsoft has failed to tell us what kind of role the new Kinect will play in games. If it will be featured in every game or not. They've failed to tell us the conditions of the used games fee. They've failed to tell us if the hardware will break down as much as the Xbox 360. And most of all, the've failed to tell us if all these rumours are true or not.

So my question to Microsoft is why? Why are you doing this to yourself, Microsoft? Why are you making yourselves look like greedy, anti-consumer bastards? Have you not seen what people have been saying and assuming about your latest project? Why are you just standing by while these rumours keep surfacing? Why are you just sweeping these questions under the rug and saying "maybe, maybe not,?" Microsoft, please just come clean already. Tell us the details. Quit leaving us in the dark to wonder and assume the worst, Microsoft. You're killing yourselves here. By letting these rumours linger, you've just shot yourselves in the leg and now your watching it bleed.
