  1. i just went to log in for the first time since the change over and i could not. it made me recreate everything and of course my gamertag is taken as a valid username.

  2. And, as it’s been mentioned before, the grey is just a terrible design choice. It makes the site read like an old Netscape Yahoo page from the late 90s. Something clean like white backgrounds and greens from the logo palette would be more readable.

  3. This blog post felt really empty, lack of Pricings and at least a small description of each game instead of sending us over to their site/Wiki page by default. Sounds like lazy booking but everyone has these days. Looking really forward to playing Islands of Wakfu.

  4. I think the site may grow on me Major. At the very least, I am looking forward to seeing how the site re-design’s base that is used by other blogs, helps to improve your blog.

    It deserves the same hit numbers as the past, and jast as if not more popularity than the team-run Playstation.Blog.

      Worms 2: Armageddon March 29 – April 3 400 (50% off)

  5. I think there’s a total clash of incentives on this blog. Major Nelson keeps it as a personal blog, I don’t believe he is paid at all for keeping it, and updates it as he can for the community’s benefit.

    Readers of this blog (including myself) use it at a great source of the newest information about Xbox and Xbox Live because it does provide tons of great Xbox info. We don’t see it as Major Nelson’s blog, we see it as the Xbox blog. So sometimes we get frustrated when it comes to changes, lack of information, etc. But it’s not frustration towards Major Nelson personally, it’s more towards Xbox, which is pretty much a faceless organization to most of us.

    I compare it to the PlayStation Blog, which is run by paid Playstation employees to maintain and update. When people gripe and complain on that blog, it’s towards PlayStation, not towards any specific person creating the content. The same kind of commenting goes on here towards Xbox, but since it’s Major Nelson’s blog (and not an Xbox blog) he is taking the brunt of the negativity.

    That’s my 2 cents on the situation. Maybe I’m the only one who feels like this.

  7. Does anyone miss the time when top down shooters were NOT “bullet hell”? Like the Xenon games by Bitmap Brothers? Those are as much shooter as I can handle or want. The Japanese have basically destroyed this genre for me by going insane on the difficulty.
