"dichotomy of despondency" - I said wow at using that in the review   icon_smile  If you do a phrase search on Google, only one other person has ever written those three words exactly like you.

Looks good

At first upon reading dichotomy I thought of the Backstroke of the West. And no, a quick search on GT didn't bring up the post we talked about the horribly translated Star Wars movie. biggrin

Been looking forward to this for some time, though I'm not sure
when I can make time to play. I hope it won't be too difficult for me.

Every forum page HAS a link to the front page - it's the giant GamingTrend logo up on the top left. Click on it every once in a while, people!

It just seems like a cheesy way to induce people to go to the front page.

True, but it is even less difficult to have it linked by the guy who came in here to tell us about it in the first place.  Since he bothered to tell people about it in the first place, he must consider it important and I figure he wouldn't mind pasting a link in here to drive as much traffic to it as possible.

I think you'll find that the people who work on the front page stuff put a *lot* of work into the front page stuff.  Because of that, and because they spend so much time with it, they assume that everyone else spends time on the front page.  Now obviously not everyone checks out the front page everyday but it's easy to see why he might have left the link out.

But you can always click on the big GT/Gaming Trend logo at the top left and it'll take you right to the front page.

Don't get me wrong.  We all appreciate the work that's been done on the front page.  The front page is great, and I do look at it.  But if the point of the thread is to get people to go to the front page, then start a "Hey, check out the front page" thread.  Generally, if you start a thread about a particular article or review, forum etiquette dictates that you embed a link to the article or review.

In any event, I apologize for the further derail.  I became interested in this game because CheapyD was bashing it on the CAGcast.  Unfortunately, I'm now realizing it's a PS3 game, so I had no business being here in the first place.  I'm certain it's a fine review however.

Yep, except that I never bother to read the reviews when he posts that they are up.  I always think that if he had a link, I would actually read them.  He doesn't, so I don't.  I am sure I am not the lone person in the world who does this, but who knows.  Getting people to read the things you write is all about doing everything you can to get the audience.  In this case, he isn't doing everything he can.

About the Folklore review on the front page that I'm not going to read (despite interest in the game) because there isn't a link in this thread.  Yes, I can be that much of a dick sometimes.

That's cool.  Once the site redesign goes through we'll be beaming reviews DIRECTLY INTO YOUR BRAIN.  I can't imagine anything else we could do.

finished the girl half of the prologue, & liked what i saw - pretty much a fleshed-out version of the demo, with some voiced cutscenes along with the comic book panel bits. either i'd gotten comfortable with it already, or the sixaxis controls've been tightened - felt much more responsive than i remembered. different, weird, & pretty - feels like the game i've been hoping it would be...

I picked it up, but no idea when I'll get to play it.
I hope it isn't too hard. I had real trouble with the warzone in the demo.

And this is really the point.  I put in a truckload of time reviewing it, Mike puts in a truckload of time setting up graphics and then posting it to the front page.  I can't imagine why you guys can't put in the single click of effort to reach the front page to see Mike's work, and then a single click to view the review.

That's the thing...we don't have to put in the effort to go to the front page.  And now your effort to write the review was wasted just a tiny bit because some people that might want to read the review don't feel like going to the page and finding the review link there.  It's up to you whether or not you want people to read the review.  Some people may go to the front page.  I never do.  Ever.  I check news content from tons of web sites and I do it by never visiting their pages, because I do it through RSS.  You don't even have RSS set up on the web page itself and so I never read the content there.

I've taken too much of this thread's time with the issue, so I will bow out until I pick up Folklore, but feel free to send me a PM if you want some feedback.

RSS is in the redesign.  Seriously - you are honestly missing out by not reading our news section.  Here is a preview of the stuff to be posted just this morning. (And I've only been working on this a little bit)  Show me ANY site that has this much news going on on any given day.  I'll wait....

As another data point: I really like reading the GT reviews and interviews, but I don't enjoy navigating the front page.  The information isn't presented in a way that I can quickly parse.  When something is mentioned to be "on the front page" I usually use my browsers search function to find the link.  And you're probably not going to like this part (Mike, look away) but since a good chunk of my GT time is spent during breaks in my work day, with my work browser settings I usually see the front page looking like this:



I mean this just as constructive criticism.  I know you all put a lot of work into the front page, and I know the look helps bring in new readers. I'm just more of a function over form kind of guy.  I'm sure there are many other people who will turn their nose up at a site if it doesn't look visually appealing enough at first glance.

I've mentioned my difficulty with the front page before (I think we were talking about adding sub-headings at the time) and I think Ron mentioned the new site build will improve navigation and readability on the front page.  I'm very eager to see how it turns out.

Oh believe me, I know Tongue  The current front page layout is like a canker-sore in my mouth- what was I thinking 4 years ago?!?! Tongue

The new one is waaaaaay sexier and easier to navigate.  I think we posted a screen of it a while back....

With all the work that is being put into the site, I agree with KD.  If just clicking on the GT symbol is too much work, I don't know what to say, but it explains some of the clients I deal with on a daily basis.  Wonderpug has a legit complaint, since the site looks to be partially blocked at work.

I think I posted this in another thread but I would really like it if we could comment directly on the news articles in question on the front page.

Yep - already in the design of the new site.  I want to launch it just as bad as you guys want to have it to use.  BELIEVE me.
