It seems that GameSpot is as slow as heck because of some issues here. Ads still appear even though they are blocked, and the survey pop-up always appears at the login screen where I try to log in. Please fix the issue.

Use Ublock instead of Adblock, works for me.

I had it off before, but after all the top 10 spammage and auto-play videos enough was enough.

Yeah, I'm using uBlock Origins, and it seems that the issue appears to have been fixed... for now.

I have the same problem. Is it an Adblock issue? :/

Well, there it is again! In spite of using the UBlock, GameSpot is STILL slow and the ads are still not blocked, only their pics! Someone really needs to fix the issue, please.

Having same issues using Google Chrome with AdBlock. I cannot post or see other comments in the news articles. Clicking 'View Comments' skips to the article directly below. Will try to contact someone from the engineer team to get this resolved.

@moonco: So we looked into the comments issue, and the reason you're not seeing comments is because it is being blocked by an adblocker. Try using incognito mode and you should be able to view the comments.

"Try using incognito mode and you should be able to view the comments"

What's that? I disable adblock and I still cannot enter the comments section on the article news.

Looks like everything is working now with Google Chrome and the AdBlock extension enabled. Let us know if you are still having problems.

Hello,

I have a Chromebook with an Intel dual-core Celeron processor and a Surface Pro 4 with an Intel i7 processor: GameSpot Web page load times related like night and day. If and when you continue having experienced slow load issues on GameSpot, then my actual suggestion to you consists of your purchase of a computer device with a quad-core processor like an Intel i5: GameSpot became a Web site with a much greater overhead near the year two thousand thirteen Anno Domini.
