If you've been keeping an eye on the non-forum-y parts of the site, you may have noticed a few things as of late:

1. Related posts at the bottom of each news post
2. Game Reviews have associated links to news, screenshots, videos, as well as game description and other parts of the game record right there on the page now. (oh, and a reviews link in the main nav!)
3. Sidebar has more deep links into other parts of the site
4. Easier scanability of post list pages
5. A ton of videos, with the help of our new video content provider
6. Topic specific RSS feeds, including the podcast- which is now on iTunes!

Mere moments ago I finally fixed something that has been plaguing me for months- filtering post categories (screens, videos, reviews) by platform! I'm doing a happy dance right now smile

We're also finally VERY close to finalizing the migration of the old database to the new site. Initially it will just be game records and reviews, but we're going to try to get screenshots over too after we do that.

My to-do list of features is shrinking, but there is plenty more to come in the next few months. Hope you dig it!
