Game and Player 365(2)

The Editors  //  October 1, 2009

Celebrating two years by gifting you.


he anniversary is officially October 7, but we couldn't wait another week. After nearly twenty-four months, five hundred articles, nine PlayStation 3 models, seventeen global Wii shortages, and a per capita average of two-and-a-half Xbox 360 breakdowns, Game and Player presses on for more smart video game review and commentary with a new website.

The design is clearer and sharper; stylish, if you have the taste. Most importantly, it offers readers practical access to game data — as well as the opportunity to easily weigh in on reviews and editorials in comment threads.

Enter to Win

What better way to celebrate the launch of our new site design than with a fabulous, week-long prize giveaway? That's right, every day this week we will be giving away prizes sponsored by a different company.

If you've already entered this week, your name is in our hopper. If not, there's still time to get in. And watch closely, as we may add a few giveaways as the mood strikes.

Happy Birthday! I'm digging the new design and the more energetic looking logo man!

Jessica Johnson // September 28, 2009 // 1:09 PM

It's so beautiful! Happy Birthday!!! :D

Michael Ubaldi // September 28, 2009 // 1:29 PM

Thanks, guys. This is the culmination of dozens of hours of work, some critical reassessment, and a liberal dosage of influence from Wipeout and Seed magazine.

Indeed, the logo man is raising his arms in triumph!

Graph paper! I frickin' love graph paper! It's all I use at home.

G&P is an eyeball pleaser. Happy Birfday!

Looks great!

Michael Ubaldi // September 28, 2009 // 6:17 PM

Graph paper: not just an artifact from high school mathematics!

Rich Johnson // September 28, 2009 // 8:40 PM

Looking good!

Rich Johnson // September 28, 2009 // 8:46 PM

Testing this Gravatar business, hope it works.

Michael Ubaldi // September 28, 2009 // 8:53 PM

Personifying comments is their business, and business is good.

Rich Johnson // September 28, 2009 // 9:13 PM

Retroactively, even!

Matthew Mosely // September 28, 2009 // 11:57 PM

The new design looks great, I tip my hat to you!

Alexandr Beran // September 29, 2009 // 2:50 PM

And I love the diagonal arrow with the stylish bar-code line to separate comments...subtle, effective -- and rad.

I'm loving the new layout. Everyone that worked on this did a great job. Is there any changes planned for the forums side of things?

Emmanuel Petti // September 30, 2009 // 2:31 PM

This site started the same day I got married, what are the odds?

I detect cosmic forces at work.

Any changes planned for the forums side of things?

Eventually, yes.

Masakuni // October 1, 2009 // 5:41 PM

Good job, I like the new look.

the Brayn // October 2, 2009 // 12:40 PM

The new site is amazing. Can't wait to see your changes for the forum.
