    DLC decription is a pain, but overall the new look is a thumbs up from my side.

    Categories (pre-oders/new games etc.) could be more recognisable (larger/fat/colored/etc.).

    Technomancer... a dish made from Phantasy Star, Mass Effect & Star Wars? Nice!

    I like the new layout, much cleaner.
    Maybe put the download text button behind the game instead of in the price table? Or create an icon button for it, so it takes up less space.

    Edit: with the new homepage layout it already looks a lot better!

    I agree with those that say to put the videos in spoilers. It would make the page much shorter, and harder to skip over the next game. I never look at the videos anyway, but I know some do.

    Also, I'm missing some description about the games. Again, spoiler.

    I am finding this page extremely long to load.

    Now using the dark theme and seeing white on white text.

    Just my two cents worth. Like others have said:

    1. Using the dark theme I cannot read any text on the page. It is white letters in a white text box.
    2. Putting the videos in a spoiler (or equivalent) click to open box would shorten the page and help with missing a game that is listed between two video boxes.
    3. Headers for the different categories need to be bigger and bolder (or some other distinction)

    Thanks for the hard work guys.

    One thing I noticed is that this format is a bit inconsistent. You have some big charts with several games and packs in them, but for Frozen Free Fall you have 3 separate charts, with the Game Title and DLC Titles as headers. I'm going to assume this is because there may not have been room for number of achievements/GS.
    Then for Pre-Orders you have all the titles as headers and a whole bunch of separate one row charts. Not sure why this couldn't just be one big chart. I originally thought maybe because the date wouldn't fit, but since you have Game and DLC titles in later charts I don't see why it couldn't.
    In both cases, if you had to forego the chart just to fit this info in, I feel the charts need reworked to fit the pertinent info. For example, some of the price columns seemed a bit wider than necessary, especially considering Dead or Alive DLC was about the only thing with a Yen Price. Also, for some things with no Yen price, you had '¥ N/A', but others you just had 'N/A'.

    And then of course as people commented the Dark Theme issues.

    Not a bad first run of the new format though.

    LOVE the new layout. Really well organized. I'm sure the little tweaks people mentioned will be worked out.

    I'm hoping this new format will carry over to the sales articles too.

    I would suggest having the descriptions as collapsible text boxes. This would allow quick skimming while hiding the spoilers.
