I'm currently designing a new layout for my site in order to achieve a more slick and professional look. Also, I've grown kind of bored with my current design. Keep in mind that this new layout is only about 40% done. It's still a large work in progress. But I want some comments on it anyways. Here it is:

yeah i like that layout a lot.

the only criticism i have, and it's completely subjective, but i would lighten up the dark grey you're using for the text panels.

I feel like the HOME button and section selectors kinda dominate the site. I'd recommend running them in a small bar across the top, or move that down one side, instead of being centered at the top.

I know what you mean quillan, but the problem is, that's the way every other site is. I think my site needs something different than that. I wil also lighten up a few of the colors. I still have a lot to do with it and the color scheme is still in development.

I havn't been to your sight to much so I'm not sure if you have something like it, but I think it would be cool if you had an area that said current top game and had a name of the best new game under it, with a link to the review as the game's name. So, for example, from what I've heard (havn't played it) Half Life 2 would go there.

Ok, I've changed the header to make it look more simplistic. Also, the navigation style that I was using before was just having some problems:

Now that I like. You've still got the dominating header, but the dominant feature is the site name, not the Home button.

how about making that circle in to an elipse so the name is stretched out a bit more up top.

lol. That's just a random news article I made up to show you guys what it will look like when news articles are posted there. Anyways, I'm almost done with the main page now. All I have to do is finish the bottom of the page, add game characters to the header, and spice it up a bit. Then I can design the content pages. I might possibly have the main page up by tomorrow night.
