New Arcade so Disappointing
Guess I won’t be going to the “Rewards Store” any time soon. No matter what I do or how high I score I can’t seem to earn any points. It’s not like I ever really won anything anyway but it’s the principle. The “Ads” are driving me bonkers! Really HSN? What exactly did your loyal customers do to deserve what you have done? Maybe to your company they are just games and what’s all the fuss, etc. Newsflash HSN! We enjoyed playing them if anything. It was a nice way to unwind, relax and yes even try our luck and see if maybe we might win something. Your bright idea doesn’t seem to be working and a lot of your customers are unhappy. Do you care HSN? Do you really care? Another thing if I may add. Enough with the Ads! They are annoying, unwelcome and awful!!
Showing ads for other retailers just might backfire on HSN. Many have only so much money available to spend and if they spend it on something from the ads they like then they will not spend more here at HSN. The ads are way more prominent than what is being shown on HSN so I don’t really see what HSN is showing now. I often purchased what was showing while playing the games but nearly impossible now to tell because the ads on the other side are showing and HSN live is too high up on the other side!!!
I was so happy to have toy chest mahjongg back. But oh my God the ads are driving me crazy!!! It doesn’t matter if I don’t always get all my points since I’ve been playing for 5 years, spent over 1,000,000 points and have never won….ever!! No point in rewards store at all. But to sit thru a 30-second commercial between every game, if it doesn’t crash, is more than I can stand. Weren’t we making you enough in profits without you having to stoop to these commercials? What do we have to pay you a subscription fee to play without commercials? Maybe the platinum arcade? Ugh. What a horrible thing you’ve turned our fun into.
I agree with everybody. The New Arcade games are horrible. The graphics look like a kindergarten kid drew them with a crayon. My favorite Klondike Solitaire Gold is gone. When I try to play Mahjongg Dimensions or Dark Dimensions the cubes spin at random and always just as I have clicked on a tile so that I lose the matching tile. I’ve tried to play Mahjongg Solitaire, but about every other game right in the middle it throws me out. The ads keep popping up in my face. I don’t play games on HSN to see ads from anybody. Now the HSN Live Stream is at the bottom way under the games so I can’t watch what is on air while I am playing. All the Mahjongg games above mentioned go to a new game as soon as the old one is finished without showing points won and of course not adding points. Spin to Win does add the points on the rare occasion I get the tickets lined up. Also it takes a very long to time to even get the above mentioned games to open up. Bryx seems to be about the same as it was. I think it may have added some points. The last time HSN changed Arcade it was not good, but they found out their error and went back. This time it is horrible. HSN needs to go back to Arkadium as the game provider and get rid of the horrible, not user friendly new Arcade game format, and for God’s sake get rid of those ads. I’ll go back to playing these games on Publishers Clearing House site if I want a bunch of ads. I go to HSN for two things: to see what HSN is offering for sale and to play their games. I don’t want to see other ads. I’m getting ready to just leave HSN.com if they don’t fix Arcade soon. I play the games to relax, but these are nerve wrecking and aggravating as well as almost unusable.
I agree with you. The games are very slow and sometimes you don’t get points. I have e-mail them 4x regarding the points and have NOT received the points. I’m very disappoint in this new system. I don’t understand why they change
Sadly I have changed my opinion on the new games, initially I thought that it was great to have so many games and have them work even if the screens were covered with ads.. Now after playing them I have experienced that the games keep stalling whenever a new ad wants to come thru and they are constantly blinking and interrupting attention to the game or tv or what ever else is going on.. Also my favorite game Todays Puzzle doesn’t work for me.. Most of the games are bumpy stalling and more difficult to enjoy than before.
The whole thing is broken…I can’t even get games to even load.
And do Idiots in Charge really think that I’m gonna run out and buy a car, after the lame ad messes up just wanting to play a couple games?
i so agree with franciecat. The ads are not so much the problem for me. It is the total lack of points. I played Klondike Solitaire a dozen times and did not earn a point. Even when I cleared the deck in under the time allotted. Over the years I have spent thousands of dollars on HSN. The games brought me to the site and I would see something and buy. I also never won anything in the Reward Store. That was questionable but no points is a problem. If this is not fixed in a day or two I suspect I will not be back to HSN. It is a shame you destroyed something fun. Goodbye.
