Welcome to the new and improved GamesRadar

Readers, remain calm. Your eyes – and monitor settings – do not deceive you. Today, the official website of the internet has changed. For the bigger, obviously, but also for the much, much better. Here are the key differences, and how they'll improve your GamesRadar-ing experience.


Way more space for way more awesomeness

This is undoubtedly the first thing you noticed when visiting today. Our articles are now 50% wider, giving us a ton of extra room – and creative freedom – when designing news, features, reviews and previews. If you thought GamesRadar's content was unique and eye-catching before, just wait. In the meantime, however, compare our previous, more cluttered design and its thin band of actual content...

... with our wider, cleaner new presentation:

Game videos and images will be supersized from now on as well. Goodbye, frustrated squinting. Hello, screen-filling immersion:

And if you're worried about GamesRadar's older content, don't be. Previous articles are unaffected by the size change.


Our best stuff is easier to find than ever

Want to read today's top articles? Simple – scroll up. There they are, lined up and ready to go, regardless what kind of computer or browser you're using. No more Flash. No more automatic, too-fast-or-too-slow scrolling. No more clicking on tiny arrows to see what's next. No more giant text blocking the thumbnails. No more broken website on your mobile phone or PSP. Just pick, point and enjoy wherever.

My GamesRadar

This isn't only a gaming website – it's also a gaming community. To emphasize that fact, we've brought more of the personalized parts of GamesRadar – your messages, your updates, your friends, your comments and your lists – to the front page. Log in at top and look for the community box on the right side of the page. And if you're not already a member of GamesRadar, now would be an awful good time to join.


Need a guide? We've got that guide

GamesRadar has been producing the best guides on the internet for years, but now you won't need a desperate Google search to find them. Hit "Cheats & Guides" on the navigation bar to visit the redesigned CheatPlanet and discover a brand new, streamlined and continuously updated Top 10 list of our most popular and demanded guides.

Got every orb in Crackdown 2? Every treasure in Red Dead Redemption? Every star in Super Mario Galaxy 2? If not, you will now.

    I really like this re-design, and I'm glad you guys are getting away from flash. While there was a certain charm to the horizontal scrolling flash articles on the front page, it's a fair trade in order to have the website look cleaner and more accessible. Most importantly, there is a lot more space for the articles and videos, which really were sorta cramped before. Great job guys.

    I like it, that scrolling news wouldn't work right here in Afghanistani. Look really good, GR
  • Defguru7777 - July 14, 2010 1:52 a.m.

  • DontPanic - July 13, 2010 9:05 p.m.

    I love the re-design, this site used to be a bear! Bravo Gr bravo.
  • BriefCandle - July 13, 2010 8:56 p.m.

    You guys should just shift it all back to CheatPlanet.com
  • super0sonic - July 13, 2010 8:49 p.m.

    This is WAYYYYYYY Better I love it a ton. Stuff is set up in the way that i like reading it and that dumb flash banner thing is gone. I love this a ton good work GamesRadar i love this a ton!!!
  • HumanMeatPuppet - July 13, 2010 8:35 p.m.

    do less redesigning and focus more on fixing the video player
  • CandiedJester - July 13, 2010 8:25 p.m.

    @IHateMakingUserIDs I totally agree. Ipad and Ipod users are the minority. Just browse on a real computer or deal with it. I still absolutely HATE the new design. I LIKED the old clutter, it made me feel like there was a lot of stuff to read and do, and now it's like there's about 5 stories, the end. It's turning into a simplified blog, basically, rather than a website, and I hate hate hate it. Just give me the old GR back and then STOP CHANGING IT!! It didn't need to be revamped again! Sigggh. But nothing I say is gonna change it back... *goes to sulk in a corner*

    Looks great. The flash box always made my phone spaz. Now I can access the official website of the internet while on the go.
  • garfunkling - July 13, 2010 8:07 p.m.

    i like the new look. more streamlined.
  • propagandainc - July 13, 2010 7:23 p.m.

    I dig it, but the only thing wrong is that that original scrolling articles thing on the main page was way better. :3
  • lukel127 - July 13, 2010 7:21 p.m.

    For anyone using an iphone (myself included) it would be 10x easier if you just did a app!!! Convert all the gr vids to quicktime and there you go! now bring back flash box!
  • Ruvalc - July 13, 2010 6:51 p.m.

    its all about fucking BRAAAAIINS!!! lol ilike it
  • manaconda - July 13, 2010 6:35 p.m.
