I have every faith in GiantBomb, Comic Vine and Tested to retain their editorial spirits. I don't want to talk about the future prospects of each former WM site,or whatever other sensational drivel, i just wanna talk about UI. I also didn't want to post this on the Tested Site, to avoid diminishing from whats probably a really exciting time for the tested crew by filling their new forum with complaints.
Have you been over to the new Tested.com? See children, this is what happens when you don't let Dave Snider make your UI, the ultimate UI master.
Seriously though, one of the WhiskeyMedia's great features was the fantastic UI design. Simple, sleek, informative, easy to navigate, down to the color palette. Now the Tested site hurts my eyeballs, feels disorganized, the forums are completely unusable by a sane individual. I'm not talking about an unfinished roll out of a WebSite, the core design of Tested is atrocious, i might even say worse then Kotaku Web 2.0.
I really hope the GB redesign is handled by Dave, he really understands the minutia of great Web Design.
