So what do you guys think of the new homepage?

Personally I like it way better than the old one, much easier to navigate and much better eye candy. Not really a fan of the white layout though at all.
 As well the site seriously lacks racing stripes. :/

yep it look better and better

#3 Posted by Jolly_Lolly (3537 posts) -

The home page looks exactly like Gamespot's now, I liked the old one better.

#4 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

It's great!

Now they just need to get the friend network bug fixed and this website will be awesome! :D

#5 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

I think it looks really sharp, very well organized and intuitive.

#6 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Awesome, enough said. I'm going to try out the white layout eventually, my eyes have adjusted to the black layout.


#7 Posted by Jayge_ (10221 posts) -

Text in the white version is much too light and pale to read, mostly in reference to quotes, small descriptions (see: blog titles on profile sidebar) and in things like the mini-feed. Also, neutral names are nearly invisible.

To coincide with this, Black Version also has darker text now, and it makes certain things hard to read.

All in the first 5 minutes too. Word.

The layout is now auto-scaling to my screen resolution. Everything is ridiculously tiny. Help.

Hold down ctrl and scroll with the mouse wheel to make the text larger.

Did that. It zooms, but doesn't put it back to normal like it was. Not a good fix.

Unlike most changes for websites, I really like this one. Really well organized :D

#13 Posted by Dalai (7069 posts) -

Hooray for new shiny buttons!

#14 Posted by xruntime (1920 posts) -

The White theme doesn't really look consistent...there's black in some places, too...I'm keeping black because the white just doesn't look that good.

The home page looks a little weird, and the news is all the way at the bottom...

Now that you mention it, it does remind me a little of Gamespot's layout.
Not exactly, but a bit Gamespotish.

Yeah i think i liked the old one better...but hey what are you gonna do...

#17 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I should not have gotten high, because now I'm trippin' hard. I need a break.

#18 Posted by TripMasterMunky (2403 posts) -

I like it except for the statistics info under the main banner. I just find that sort of info unnecessary to users of the website and it should just go back down to the bottom like it was. That way we can see more of the blog info and new videos when we first come to the page, without having to scroll as much.

#19 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

It looks good, but I'm disappointed that only the homepage is different.

#20 Posted by Manks (836 posts) -

The guides are a great new addition and the home page looks a lot more organized and easier to read; especially for headlines.  Good thing the white background w/ black text is optional because it hurts my eyes like many have said.  I'll be sticking to the standard colors for now.  Overall, the new layout and additions are awesome.  

The only problem that I have is you can't see what you're typing while in the new background.

The white layout
 is a bit weird.

I think it's definitely better besides the retarded text.
#23 Posted by Ghost_of_Perdition (735 posts) -

Looking good.  Everything from the front page to the FAQs.


I checked out the white version, and it temporarily broke me eyeballs.  So for now, I'm sticking with the black version.

#24 Posted by SamStrife (1286 posts) -

It looks better, but i don't like how the wiki aspect is at the top.  I think it should stay under the news and what not.

#25 Posted by giyanks22 (2681 posts) -

It is ok, It is more catchy. I like the old alot, but the old one is a little bright...

#26 Posted by p4ddym1607 (995 posts) -

When using the white version i cant see what i am writing. Anyone else?

#27 Posted by breton (1437 posts) -

It'll take getting used to.

#28 Posted by Player1 (3892 posts) -

Like it, will get some taking used to, but not much at all. Love the guides section. You can make tables now too.

Shh, just let them think it's something new so they can be even more amazed. :P
#31 Posted by Ma7moud (805 posts) -

Its amazing I really like it. But the white layout is too bright for me.

Are you saying we could've been organizing our thoughts into a neat and orderly table this WHOLE TIME!?

What did you like about the old layout?
#34 Posted by MOLE (321 posts) -

I love it

At first when the guys at Giantbomb said this website was going to be HUGE!!!!  I never thought it was going to turn out to be this good

#35 Posted by Duffy (124 posts) -

I love it I think its great!

#36 Posted by MisterSpiffy (880 posts) -

I liked the old layout better, but this one's alright.

#37 Posted by Zorn20 (69 posts) -
I just got on and i was like wow i think it's very cool.
#38 Posted by zyn (2591 posts) -

I like it.  However, the white style is bad.

#39 Posted by Jayge_ (10221 posts) -

Section comments on the blog are broken, as are making tables.

Text is fixed though!

I think the white is nicer than expected, but not enough harsh divisions and indicators are present.

#40 Posted by jlaudio7 (326 posts) -

NICE.

#41 Posted by Leon31 (125 posts) -

I like it so far, it may take some getting used to but I'm into it so no complaints yet.

#42 Posted by Dalai (7069 posts) -

Yeah, not a fan of the white myself.

#45 Posted by PartWerewolf (51 posts) -

Love it. Love the Facebook type layout of the profiles as well.

#46 Posted by Coltonio7 (3156 posts) -

Rawr...this'll take some getting used to.

#47 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

I like it and the tables seem pretty cool.  Haven't used the guides much.

#48 Posted by HistoryInRust (6398 posts) -

Es ist sehr gut.

#49 Posted by Hexogen (766 posts) -

The new way of organizing the latest editorial content allows for a lot more stuff to be on the front page at once, the stats are pretty neat, and of course guides are a welcome addition. I think it's quite nice.

I literally just refreshed the site after like 2 hours away, and was like, "What the fuck just happened?" But I really like it, especially the "Pages that need help" section.
