    Seems like sometimes the game is in the first column of the table and sometimes it's above the table?

    Looks pretty good if you only leave the table for the prices, otherwise it looks way too squishy.

    I think this looks pretty good overall, it's a lot smarter looking than the old lists. One thing I would suggest is to put the headers of each section (i.e. Pre-Orders, New Game Bundles, DLC with Achievements etc.) in bold font to makeit easier to see where the different sections begin.

    Another suggestion, specifically for the DLC sections would be to maybe have the game name for the respective DLC above the table for example:

    Pinball FX2
    DLC / Price1 / Price2 / Price3 / Price4 / Price5 / Price6 / Download Link

    I think that this would look a little neater than the current format

    There's also a few issues with some of the text in coloumbs overlapping text in ajacent coloumbs, especially if I have my browser isn't maximized (this is on chrome).

    Overall like I say I think this new layout is a good improvement! toast

    I wish we'd just get past this whole $X.95, $X.99 thing.

    Looks good for the most part on mobile. Only issue is the price box keeps going to the right. Text columns work as they should.

    Not a fan of the columns, page took a lot longer to load.

    I think the price table and the following description in the quote should not have any whitespace between them. Not only would it reclaim a lot of vertical space, the relief between the items makes it a lot harder to skim while scrolling. You could either kill the table's bottom border and the quote's top, left, and right borders or simply put the description in a table cell. I think probably spoilering the description would be a great idea too, and especially putting the YouTube videos in the spoilers.

    The tabular layout doesn't work very well in most of these cases, though. When it's just being used to display the prices then it's not so bad, but once you put the name of a game or a DLC in there it goes all to hell. I don't have any intelligent suggestions for that, though.

    Looks really good... but would it be possible to keep everything in the chart, with a button for a drop down menu that shows the description and videos?

    Would look much much cleaner

    Mobius Evalon said:I wish we'd just get past this whole $X.95, $X.99 thing.I agree, but I also think a lot of people see 9.99 as less than 10 subconsciously, and that it's never going to stop! :p
