There's a new css menu which looks pretty good on its own but some pages don't look that good. The main page, for example, leaves too considerable spaces between the menu and content. Review pages look better.

Just posting here since your ancient html technology doesn´t allow comments :P

Had great fun reading Metro 2033 and Legendary´s reviews.

If i knew you was looking for that award, I could have suggested a couple of more games.

Just read the DEHR review. I´m kindoff disappointed that while the rating tells you it is a great game, the text doesn´t reflex such greatness. As there are more lines focused on complaints or generic description than the ones pointing good things.

Just some feedback. I´m not implying the review is bad or that it should be changed.

I actually got the same impression when I read the finished review. Generally speaking I'm not good at praising something; at least that's the way I feel even though I think I did a pretty good job with the ME3 review.
Even so, besides the graphics, there were maybe only two further lines containing small criticism. I don't think I left out anything that I should have included. Maybe I could have talked about the story a bit more, just to give it at least an equal weight to graphics.

Well, yes. It´s like the way you balanced lenghts that gives that impression. Maybe some of those flaws in the game required longer descriptions than some good things that are easy to point.

It´s kind of sad that this is the first time in years you dont come up with the year´s resume of releases. We should expropiate the site.

Oh I will, I just need an excuse to update, so you can go and publish a map or something to help me out.

Have to admit you did a good job with Betrayer´s review. Even if i didn´t play the game, your words managed to draw a very solid picture of it in my head. May I get it when it´s on a crazy sale. The exchange rate around here is going off charts and even the sales now are a luxury, specially because I have no idea how much i will have to pay for a game since credit cards collect monthly and Dollar can go up to %20 in a month.

Oh yeah the default thing. Kinda puts things into a perspective around here. Many in the Eurozone complain about the Euro but one thing it has pretty much removed are potentially destructive exchange rate fluctuations.

I don't expect you to get much out of Betrayer. As said in the review, it doesn't really have the kind of level design you'd enjoy; it consists 100% of outdoor areas (that look and feel very realistic), not the kind of stuff you often find yourself taking screenshots of. But the atmosphere is pretty amazing in its simplicity.

I see you put Halls of Doom under the "total conversions" heading on MSDN, I thought it was purely a vanilla thing?

Hmm guess I can say the same about Metropolitan Mayhem and possibly Duke Hard.

Yeah that has been discussed before; at some point I suggested a new section for episodes that don't qualify as TCs but what would be the point at the end of the day? In practice the term "total conversion" has pretty much since the beginning been used to also refer to episodes with just a few con changes, if even that.

Anyway, changed the layout a bit & fixed most broken Hot Map links. Fixing the links took maybe 30 minutes and messing around with the css file a bit took maybe 1.5 hours so that's just 2 hours of work which I had been avoiding for years.

That´s awesome! Now, get the old theme back. There are already enough amateurish-looking sites for duke.
