Wooow, the redesign is.... :O

It's beautiful, looks so clean, professional and polished, it looks like a desktop application. Looks awesome on a 24" 1920x1200

Great job GB / WM!!

It's looking great, since I don't live in the US the live stream countdown is a very appreciated feature.

Oh god, I'm freaking out, man... what is this strange new look? 
 
It'll take some adjustment, but I like it so far. Good job!

Looks great, it's actually tempted me to convert to white as well, as it looks amazing in white!

I think this is pretty awesome, though some of the font stuff is pretty weird. 
 
I've been looking forward to this redesign ever since Alexis started teasing it on Twitter about a month and a half ago.

Is the "latest tweets/updates" and blogs from ppl you follow gone?  I liked those.

Really like it a lot.  Wasn't this new font rolled out temporarily a few weeks ago or something?

S'alright. Long as I get that sweet Giant Bomb content I could care less how the homepage is laid out.

Looks pretty good (white version), minor niggles though: 
- I don't like the loss of the Latest Updates section. I used it to keep track of the staff and only a select few users. If one person makes, for example, a lot of twitter posts, I'll miss out on blog or other status updates from other people too. 
- I seem to be getting people who I'm not following in the Friends' Stream section. 
- The three-star icon is showing up in a completely different style than all the others.

I like it a lot, but two things bother me: 
 
1) The new font for text body. It's harder to read. Definitely not an improvement. Font smoothing only looks good until you actually want to read the text.
 
2) It could be a little tighter vertically. Like there's a little too much space between the live show and the little arrows that control the pages of highlight boxes.

Hover over your name on the top right and it's in the bottom of the box that appears :)

Text is WAY too big. Switching two grid view helps some. But even though the design is fine: 100% unnecessary.

White skin is nice, looks really good. Took me a while to figure out how to set that (hover over name and then select the white background). On the darker one, I think the issue with the type is that there is a little too much contrast. If the type was a little darker it won't "vibrate" as much.
 
Also, in the forums the "level" text and the user names in grey probably need to be a little darker as they are hard to read.

Generally very very positive, I wont call out all the features individually, it works. Good job.
 
The one thing that really jumps out as not working for me is the white rectangles when you mouse over the quick looks etc on the front page.  They are kind of stark and have an unformatted look that almost suggests you are seeing past the front page into bare forms (plus it seems that some longer titles push the comment icon off the bottom).

I really don't like it. Way too much blank space and everything feels like it's just floating there. I need some grids or lines or something dammit!  
 
It wouldn't be as bad if the video player was larger...

Love it! Definitely one of the slickest website redesigns I've seen in awhile. A couple of kinks, but that's to be expected.
 
The loss of status and blog updates is a bit sad, but it looks like you still have them on your profile page, so not too bad. The "Friend's Stream" seems to be drawing from general site activity, unfortunately, but I'm fine with most of everything else.

Loving it. Just miss the status update bar as I don't care about featured games and would much rather know about what the people i follow are doing. But I know it isn't tailored just for me so i can deal with it.

We need to get rid of the video up and front. Totally stupid to occupy so much space with one video.
