that's because I fixed it

/reviews.php shouldn't show underground games at all. I removed them from that box at the top, but not from the iframe page. My bad

Ah, great!

I must admit that I never liked the old design that much, but this is deliciously pro, yet uncluttered.

It's flourishes like this that make me proud of being a part of this delicious phenomenon. To say the new site is gorgeous is simply redundant, so I'll just shut up now and say 'CHEERS!'

Nicely done. I think every website just needs a redesign every once in awhile to stay fresh. I especially like the pictures next to the titles in the Hype-o-Meter.

OUCH

WOW

Just give me a few minutes to get used to the design... I thought the previous one was perfect, but I am certain it's a matter of days and I'll forget there ever was an old one - just like it was with the forum.

All I can say is that the Web Site's new look is really great!. Congratulations Marek, and everybody else on making Adventure Gamers more modern, and beautiful to look at the same time. What a sweet, unexpected treat!.

Looks so official.
Thumbs up all the way.

Actually, we were just trying to discriminate against the left-handed

Best part about this update is it gave me the chance to pretty much rewrite everything from scratch and clean the code up. Now I'm not totally disgusted when looking at it

There are pictures next to the hype-o-meter?!?!!? No one told me! (Yes, Marek, I read your post.) What is this, some @$(#$*^ adventure game where you have to explore the place on your own to find stuff out?? Where's the walkthrough!!

Edit: NOW do y'all see why I was defending walkthroughs? Clearly, thinking to use a scroll bar on my own was too much for me.

I don't like the main page much, it feels a bit too dense to me. Also, I'm not a fan of the right side links. The new Hype-o-Meter is great, though.

That said, I also like all the other pages much better now. They not only are prettier, but also they feel much more professional than before.

My initial response when it loaded was "What the hell did you do to my website?!" Now that I took a longer look at it, I love it!

And your mother dresses you funny!

I wasn't thrilled with the changes when I first saw them (a while ago). I have to say they've really grown on me though. Over the past few weeks I have been going back and forth between the new site and the old site a lot and the old site started looking really clunky in comparison.
