    Keep up the good work, Brian!

    If I might raise a few concerns I have with your site:

    1. Site performance: for some reason, your site’s pages take much longer to load than any other sites I visit.
    2. Featured Posts scrolling banner: I find this a little distracting and unnecessary. I mean, the posts you feature are already all right there on the home page.
    3. Game List links: could you add links to your reviews on the Game List page? Also, adding links to the URLs listed would be nice.

      Hey thanks man. As for your concerns.

      1. Yeah, I think it’s mostly the theme, plus I’ve tried compression and it breaks some plugins, but I’ll try it again.

      2. Featured posts like reviews and such don’t always stay on the front page as they get pushed down by other posts, or get mired in between news posts and posts like this, so the featured slider lets people see the most important content front and center.

      3. Sadly the plugin I’m using doesn’t allow that, and I’ve yet to find one that does. The only way to do that, I believe at the moment, is to code the tables manually, and I neither have the time nor patience for that. ;)

    Much can be said with few words. Certainly don’t feel like you’re obligated to give a game a lengthy review for any reason other than you wanting to.

    I agree with you about the tower defense games. Let’s be honest, this stuff was most interesting in 1999 as a mod for Starcraft. They also make for slightly amusing flash games, but I can’t see why people actually build games around this concept.

    Then again I think Diablo was made for people who got confused by controlling more than 1 unit in Warcraft. Din’s curse is neat though.

  5. everyone is saying how awesome FTL is.Torchlight 2!!!
