One (Your Blog Title Must Have At Least 10 Characters because Gamespot Now Sucks)

Remember this?

<object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/EzgGTTtR0kc?hl=en_US&amp;version=3&amp;rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/EzgGTTtR0kc?hl=en_US&amp;version=3&amp;rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

That's what Gamespot is like now. I'm trapped in my own blog and no one can hear...

Even the feeds are limited to a few posts.

The site changes are aggravating. What makes things worse is the sense that GS staff aren't doing anything at all to address any of the complaints. Blogging is just about dead since you can't find each other's blogs unless you log on at the right moment, otherwise they get drowned in the feeds.

I wasn't aware of the minimal blog title length requirement. I'll just add that to the list of unnecessary changes to this site.

I'm somewhat ambivalent as yet - there's potential within the re-design, but the implementation has fallen well short.

And the staff's estimation of the blogging tools as "awesome" are totally without merit - this WYSIWYG editor sucks, big time - bring back the ability to use raw html, I say.

Gamespot really is terrible now. They've taken everything away without adding anything good.

I'm seriously thinking about deactivating this account. Unless my friends suddenly come back, that's most likely what I'll do.

I don't like youtube, either, but seriously consider moving my main game commenting activity to GiantBomb for both sites look almost identical now, only that GB works, and GS not...

@VintAge68 I can't even get to Giant Bomb due to the restrictions at work.  I'm mostly surfing Kotaku now.
