Can the video information be an overlay instead that slides in from the right when you move your cursor over the video? That way, the video can stay centered and the area around the video remain clean.
I would like if the carousels feel less static. When I hover my mouse between the center and edge of one side, it should start moving. When hovering my mouse over the top ribbon such as "store", I prefer that it wouldn't dim the whole site because hovering over "Videos" then "Podcasts" makes the site blink in a blinding way. The dimming can either be a gentler fading in and out or smart enough to continue being black as I hover over selections quickly like "Podcasts" then "Community".
As it is, looks great!
Also, how about a GB Infinite, but for podcasts? The 10 year podcast special reminded me the incredible collection of moments within the bombcasts. People can hang out there and chat, or simply listen in the background as a decade of podcasts gets chosen. I always listen to bomb/beastcasts at work. Having a feature to randomly select for me and knowing someone out there is listening on the same thing would be fun even though I'm not actively in chat.
I recommend gundam thunderbolt. A self contained story where all you need to know is Feds vs. Zeon. The animation to me, is the best the franchise have seen. It's 8 episode a season so it's short with great pacing. It's refreshing how brutal it is kind of like iron blooded orphans. The show's two seasons in so far.
Man, the OT is usually what I go to neogaf for. There’s a lot of regulars and gif creators who are very nice people. The community can be very supportive whenever someone with issues in their life make a thread. I haven’t read scoop’s article yet, but reading some of the comments here, I don’t think I can go back if it does a 2.0.
