GameCritics.com gets a visual facelift

Chi Kong Lui's picture
Welcome to the semi-new looking GameCritics.com! For years, our inability to grasp Cascading Style Sheets has always made us the pretty-ugly girl of video game sites. It's nice to finally see the old girl take off those thick rims glasses, let her hair down, and get all dolled up so she can attend the party of modern web design. Let us know what you think, but be gentle since she's still a bit shy and insecure.

Cell on the main page...

On the main page, the cell containing the logo really sticks out. I think you should add the header from the forums to the main page instead.

Hey coyls, I'm not quite sure what you mean. The header in the homepage and forums is identical. Can you elaborate? We also increased the size of the logo. Does that change anything?

Same for me...

I too am seeing the main page this way. The GameCritics.com home still looks similar to the older version when it comes to the header.

Disregard my first comment

Right after I posted my first comment, the page look was uniform throughout the different sections. Not sure what was up with that. The page looks good guys. Keep up the good work.

when I posted that, the

when I posted that, the headers looked different. the bottom nav bar looked like it used too, and the cell with the logo in it really stood out.

It might have just been my browser or something, but it looks good now.

Good job!

Looking good.

Looking good.

Forgot

Forgot to say would be nice if you revamped the comments system here, get rid of the capcha for registered users, or at least build a database of sane users so they don;t have to be forced to use it.

Editing comments would be nice too.

well..

The biggest difference for me is the excessive amount of garish advertising that is like a strobe light to the face. But you are still my fav game site, flashing or not :p

I like the facelift, thumbs

I like the facelift, thumbs up.

I would also like to see easier commenting for registered users or a "sanity-database" and editing possibilities.

Why is there no love for Eurogamer or Edge in the "best game review sites"? I find their reviews very informative and way better than anything IGN or Gametrailers ever puts up. And metacritic? come on...

Sorry about that. I haven't seen these ads because depending on where you are located in the world, you will get different ads served to you. I'll try opt out of these campaigns.

The "best" list is really meant to be a generic list of popular gaming sites so don't read too much into it, but I can include Eurogamer and Edge there.

If we use our forums as a measuring stick, even accounts and email verification hasn't prevented a steady influx of spammers. Recaptcha is still the most effective deterrent of spammers I'm afraid. That said, we didn't intend to create a database of users for comments with this current generation of the site. Perhaps its something we'll consider in the future. Thanks for the feedback.

ever though about using

ever though about using DISQUS?

Looks Good

Just wanted to say that I like the new face lift to the site, keep up the good work Chi. At first I thought it was my browser, cause the text was smaller. lol But then I realized lol Good Job
Thanks Wes
