    Hi,

    I have been having trouble accessing this site for the last 2 days. It also happened for a day about 10 days ago. The website never opens.

    I tried my connection (wireless and Ethernet), my 3G connection, the wireless at my brothers home, but it is still not working.

    I am currently accessing this site through hotspot shield. It seems to me that the country's IP was blocked or something.

    I home someone can shed a light on this issue. Thanks!

    Is it still broken? Costello says it should be fixed now, and it's working fine for me. I've also been having problems for the past day or so, along with a bunch of other people.

    I've been having the same problem over the last few days and assumed it was due to increased traffic during E3.

    I was having the same problem ever since E3 started. Even after clearing my cache, flushing my dns, clearing all temporary system files, and even testing in a virtual machine I was only ever able to half-load the home page every so often.
    I wound up changing my IP and now everything works.

    Yeah that's how I am logged in. Hotspot shield is basically a proxy. I hope someone can take a look on it.

    Looks like I am not the only one having trouble. I expected to find another thread where people already reported this issue. When I didn't, I assumed it was only me.

    Let's approach this differently:

    Is anyone STILL having problems besides me?

    I was having problems a couple of hours ago at home with my ISP that is O2 (another name for Telefónica - Timofónica - Telefórrica - Piece of Shit communications monopoly wannabe - whatever you want to call it)
    I also was having problems a couple of hours ago with my phone ISP that is FONIC (again depends on O2 and read above)
    Now I am at work and I don't have problems, I can't test the previous connections.

    Wow, so other people were having issues, while others were not, and like the OP, I too could access it nearly instantly via a proxy server. Usually proxies have the opposite effect, they take forever to load. I don't think all the E3-related news helped the site's traffic any. :P

    That's consistent with a routing issue, and you're probably right the E3 traffic probably just compounded the problem.
