Check out GamesRadar's new look

Today, we are proud and excited to be giving our readers - including you - a sneak preview of the newest version of GamesRadar. It doesn't have a stupidly epic new name, like GamesRadar Xtreme or GR 3.0 Inferno, but it does have some major improvements that will enable us to serve you readers better than ever before.

What's changed? Quite a few things, but the biggest evolution is that the impenetrable pile of lists on our homepage has been replaced by a single massive torrent of gaming goodness. Plus, we've supercharged both our site and ourselves to make sure GamesRadar is constantly churning over with fresher, faster, funnier new content.

Best of all, this is just the start - we've got a ton more enhancements and improvements on the way.

So how do you get involved in this amazing future GamesRadar, you ask? Simple. Check out the top right corner of GR's homepage. See that little gray box? That's the key.

Note: The gray box is ONLY on the homepage. Don't look at the top of this article. It isn't there. It's on the HOMEPAGE.

If your box looks like this, you're already here. Welcome to Tomorrowland! Why not scroll down our new homepage and have a look?

If you see this box instead, don't worry - just click it and you'll be caught up in no time.

Click around and explore a bit, but please don't forget to head back here and leave a comment to tell us what you think. We're committed to giving you readers exactly what you want - so give us a shout and make your opinions heard.

    Still hate it. I've tried it for a week now and it still sucks. i don't want to have to click on the tabs to find what i want. The problem is i have a life and don't come on this site everyday. Now with your little articles you do everyday the important stuff that i want to see gets lost in the older stories. Please make the home screen better. All you have to do is find some way to make it more organized then the new version. You don't have to go back, start over again please!

    I like this new look. Good job.
  • KishouTenpi - March 29, 2010 6:21 p.m.

    Ilike the idea of trying something news, but I perfer the old layout it's easier to locate articles and different things and the single feed format of the new page makes it seem cluttered and un-organiseed

    I think right now I like the old version better. I liked the old front page, it seemed to have more to look at in the middle, now it looks like a blog...which is a little wierd. But I always hate to see websites change, like xanga, or facebook, but oh well...I eventually get used to it and forget the old version I loved before. I think the forums section could really use a new skin. It seems so plain and a little outdated. I would use it a lot more if it looked a little more...alive...idk. Anyway, I still love you Gamesradar! Always and forever! :D <33

    Hate to say it, but I prefer the old layout also. The organization of the old homepage is much more efficient. The new way, if you miss something you would never know unless you went digging through pages of updates. You guys are a real website offering a real services, not some fanboy's wordpress weblog. Funny, usually I like things simple or "analogue". It seems better on the surface, all the articles on one page, click next at the bottom to see the older stuff, but in practice it is really inefficient. Hopefully you will continue to make both options available. Otherwise, love the site as always guys. Recaptcha:the syringes. Awesome,now I know where you get your inspiration and jokes from.

    The new style is awesome... I definitely prefer the menus on the left to scrolling down. Excellent work guys (and girls!)

    While I don't hate the new skin, I'm not its biggest fan. I personally prefer the category view. May I suggest an option to change how you view the site? If not, I could get used to the new format. Just leaving my two cents. But as for the content, I'm all for it; the more, the merrier.

    Since it's the week for it, I hate hate hate the new look. If I wanted to go to Kotaku I would have. Bring back the lists!
  • kkokko - March 25, 2010 11:40 a.m.

    Cool! can't wait to see it when it's fully developed!:D
  • Mechamorbo - March 25, 2010 3:13 a.m.

    I for one like it. It lets me easily see who wrote an article, and thus to more easily avoid the unfunny UK articles. HA! Approved.
  • gibsonend - March 25, 2010 1:03 a.m.

    God damn I hate you guys...
  • sleepy92ismypsn - March 25, 2010 12:55 a.m.

    i prefer the old version because its quicker to check all the new stuff in categories all on the homepage instead of clicking and seeing one category at a time we could already do that in the old version. the new version seems like n4g but with less articles
  • groovy3000 - March 25, 2010 12:24 a.m.

    the new one is still good but i prefer the older one. the new one is less organized and its harder to scan through the articles for the one you want
  • beezn - March 24, 2010 11:36 p.m.

    now just fix the forum so we don't need to post in html ourselves to place photographs. and we'll be all set!
  • 2Girls1CupOfSorrow - March 24, 2010 11:33 p.m.

    NO. STOP. OLD IS BETTER. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE(S) FACEBOOK DID.
  • Heyexclamationpoint - March 24, 2010 11:28 p.m.

    Honestly, I don't like this. The layout makes this feel like some amateur blog site instead of an organized web site.
  • DarthKratos - March 24, 2010 9:42 p.m.

    The old version was not as messy. I'm sorry, but this update doesn't work for me. Please stick with the current version.
  • Baron164 - March 24, 2010 6:47 p.m.

    I'm loving the new layout. I'm finding it much easier to see what new content has been posted. The front page feels a lot less cluttered then it did before.
  • Howetzer - March 24, 2010 6:47 p.m.

    Ok well here ya go guys, this looks to be the only damn article you guys are reading and commenting on anymore, but I'll get to that in a minute.... The new look by itself I think I actually like, get rid of the stupid ads mid-way down the center like that, but the look in itself I think is just fine. The problem is theres way too much stuff being put on at once, alot of articles that are spreading you guys too thin, you arent commenting on the articles like you used to, so I have to assume that means you're reading the comments left for you less as well. I also think it lets less people see each article(and thus comment on them), because seriously I dont think many people are gunna want to scroll down 3 miles of the center page, THEN click that little "older stories" button to see what else they missed. I liked coming here for the funny stories, the way the editors read and comment on peoples' comments, and the other readers comments themselves because its nice to once and a while get a conversation about games going on here ya know? Anyone agree? Summation: Good look sans the ads in the middle of the damn page, but too much crap being put on for other people to have the chance to converse about gaming, and for you the editors to engage the readers about the same. Get a thicker CRAP filter so less gets thru!

    When I look at the old and new styles at the moment the old style is far more organized down the main centre of the page under headings for type of article. The new page is just throwing every recent story in order of upload with no order. You just made the main page look like the features or reviews page or any other page you get to from the left hand navigation column. The new page has a much less streamlined look and has no organization compared to the old page. I never understand why webpages change formats from where everything is organized under heading to pages that have one list of everything, large sized showing more white space. Is this to try to have that sleek ultra modern style thing? Perhaps giving readers the option to choose which they want to use would be nice. Then you can keep a running tally and get feedback from the people who use the site.
