Get A First Look at GameSpot's New Homepage
Our new homepage will improve your experience by streamlining the way content is presented on the site. Enjoy this video preview and let us know what you think in the comments below.
So where are the release dates for new games coming out? Why do I have to watch a video every two seconds? just about any page you click on a video comes on whether you want it to or not.
One more thing, enough of the April's Fools joke, bring back FEEDBACKULA already! We miss Johnny's and Co. cynicism over here
I am just REALLY happy that you guys brought back the separation of articles by console on the top of the page. It's super helpful, thank you!
2 Things I'd love to see :)
1st, When a video is over it shouldn't load up the next page.
After the video is over I might want to scroll down and type a comment.
You can just go with the youtube way of doing things and suggest stuff rather than having it force me on a different page.
2nd, In the video, the new front page news blocks (the 3 blocks where the biggest one was watch dogs) are touching eachother.
Can there be a tiny space between them, maybe even with a drop shadow :P
I know it's nit picking but I really don't like 3 iframes touching.
It's a bitch to code I know but that's just my 2cents :P
Site looks sleek guys!
Please check the video loading process. It's really slow and painful to wait. More than once I decided to check on Youtube's Channel.
Also, a extra space for relevant links of the video would be awesome. Would save a lot for voting on Skyrim Mods of the Week and accessing mods download..
Waaaaay better! In fact I didn't understand the last change. Everything is so chaotic and so out of place that you only can see the information you want after you get used to it, someone who came for the first time would certainly feel confused.
Yeah, it's nice but I'm not getting email notifications (for months
now) when my comments get replies. Could you guys maybe fix that?
So more pics of Jess and more rants from Kev and Caro about equality, but totally missing the point that Jess is plastered all over the front page week in and week out. The right hand has zero idea what the left is doing.
I've had this update for about a week or so. It's broken some things and really hasn't made anything better. Old Gamespot >. The slider at the top showing the top 5 news stories was far better than the massive single image, and better than the new 3 image/story layout.
I actually like the update!
I am glad the daily shows panel is back :]
The only thing I don't like is when you are watching a video and it automatically goes to the "next video" when it finishes. I understand that you can click on the X and skip it, but sometimes you sit back and watch a video, but near the end you have to quickly grab the mouse and click that X before it is too late lol Please make it optional or something.
This was actually active last week some time and then you removed it. Was a massive improvement even then.
Well i don't know why you do this... Since the last update the search bar become an annoying thing that never finds what im looking for " a game"
Anyway, i just come back here to read what gamers think
And i was under the impression that the last update was beyond bad. But now you people have outdone yourselves my brain hurts. You really paid someone for this jesus.....
Why is the default background color white? It hurts the eyes when it's dark... Previously you could pick the black/grey background and the site would remember your choice and keep it that way. Now whenever I go to the homepage it's always back to white. :(
Please for the love of God fix the notifications. I have been coming to GameSpot because it had always been the best site to get the updates of y our favorite games. But, this new notification is a joke. It is hard to tell what updates and articles are, it just says something like 'Arkham Knight' has an update, instead of categorizing the updates in terms of games and type of update like before.
I hate it that so many sites want to put huge pictures in the upper part. Just give me a feed with the chronological order of news and videos and I am happy. No need to waste half of my screen to display a huge picture... I really hate that trend
Until you get rid of the CBSi video player, any site facelift is a waste of time. It's 2014. A flash video shouldn't stream so poorly here when you can watch the same video on GameSpot's Youtube channel with zero stuttering. Wish they'd just put a link to those below the site's embedded video.
@amputate Nr.1 pisses me off so much.
@Tao_and_Zen That could be an issue with livefyre. I'll add it to the list of things to take a look at.
@Pheonix985 That does sound odd. Send me a PM of which games are you getting notifications for that you shouldn't be, I'll try and take a look under the hood.
@foxrock66 What do you want to see us focusing on?
@redder1111 Which shows do you want to see more of?
@Dannystaples14 yes that happened for one day only then it was back to normal layout
@Dannystaples14 well strangely enough, I've been able to see this layout since last week on my other laptop. This one though still shows the old one.
@xand3rro Care to elaborate?
@johnd13 If I select "white on black" it stays this way. So it's fine, at least for me.
@dono14 Yes it was so simple so streamlined. If it aint broke don't fix it.
@crunchb3rry A million times this. The performance of the videos in gamespot is abysmal, at least for me. I always end up watching them in youtube. Also, it looks like there's no preloading whatsoever. Even if you pause the video for a few minutes, you still get an intermittent stream if you are in a low bandwidth network.
Seriously, the video player needs to improve.
@crunchb3rry works fine for me....
Different problems for different viewers. ;)
