2008-02-03 [Hedda]: I can write a review of Travian, if there is some interest. (The short version is that it's interesting, but it sucks badly.)

2008-02-05 [striker lone_wolf]: That would be good, once we get a few start reviews, we should be able to get some more interest

2008-02-06 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: Well, I'm up to 3 so far. I'll add more later, cause it's so fun to get my opinion out there for the masses to read <.<

2008-02-06 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: Oh, and you might want to differentiate between Playstation 1, 2, and 3... Xbox and Xbox 360... and the Nintendo Wii, Gamecube, 64, SNES and NES... even throw in the Sega Dreamcast and Genesis if you want. I make sure to say which system mine is for, but even if it's just dividing up the pages into categories, it'd be helpful.

2008-02-06 [striker lone_wolf]: Yeah, That's good, I was thinking that as i was reading your your reviews, your a great help..

2008-02-07 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: I do what I can. ^_^

2008-02-07 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: Ok, I'm confused. Why did you change the page that way, exactly? Just all you had time to do... or...?

2008-02-07 [striker lone_wolf]: Because i did that much and my laptop started being funny, so it kept mucking up and i turned it off. Im about to do the rest now...

2008-02-07 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: *nods* Allrighty ^_^ Just checking...

2008-02-08 [striker lone_wolf]: If you want to have a quick look and tell me if you like how i set up the pages, that would be a great help, once again, your help is much apprieciated...

2008-02-08 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: No problem ^-^ I'm also going to write more reviews once I get the time. *nods* PLENTY more...

2008-02-08 [striker lone_wolf]: That would be great, and extremely helpful aswell...

2008-02-10 [Hedda]: I added the Game News - Web Games section and added Travian and Desktop Tower Defense there.

I also added some warnings to the empty sections so that people who just want to read don't have to click on them.

2008-02-11 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: And a 'Woot' for Hedda. I honestly never would've thought of making warnings about empty areas <.< Well... mostly because I thought they'd be filled up soon enough to not need it.
But meh.
The 'Woot' still stands.

2008-02-11 [Calico Tiger]: I removed the empty from the computer games section and added something. Feel free to remove it and put the empty back if it's not exactly what you're looking for :)

2008-02-11 [Hedda]: I gave the page a small friendly rating so that people who want to share their game news can find it.

2008-02-11 [striker lone_wolf]: Thank you, this will be a good help to get this page out there, hopefully we can get alot more views..

Niall

2008-02-11 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: Ooo... that's right... *goes off to write more reviews*

2008-02-11 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: Oh, and would you mind if I updated the 'Guide to posting a review' page?

2008-02-12 [striker lone_wolf]: That would be fine, i havn't reli thought of what to put there as i have not written a review yet, but i say yes, it would be great.

niall

2008-02-12 [Tyr and Zao Hawk]: there, I think I did well enough... *nods*

2008-12-19 [Hedda]: "New Game Download Site Offers Play-as-You-Download Service"

[1]arcticstoat writes to tell us that in spite of the many game
download sites available, another one has decided to give it a go,
only this time with a twist. UK-based Game Domain International is
launching their AWOMO service that will allow you to [2]play the game
before it's done downloading. As an added incentive to get people to
sign up, you can try out the beta now and get [3]Rome: Total War for
free. "The trick, according to GDI, is its 'unique technology' that
'lets you start playing before the game has finished downloading,
meaning you can be up and running, jumping and fragging in minutes
rather than hours.' Although some other download services allow you to
start playing a game before it's fully downloaded, you usually still
have to download a big chunk of data before you can start, and GDI
reckons that it's cracked this problem. According to GDI, AWOMO takes
a look at your PC's spec and connection speed, and then hooks you up
with a sufficient buffer to stop your game stalling during gameplay.
The company is confident that 'the delivery system accurately predicts
the data you require next and ensures it's already there waiting
before you need it.'"
