Wondering what's wrong with GamesRadar?

GamesRadar’s going under the knife for a bit to bring you crucial new features and site updates. Keeping with the surgical analogy, we’ve got to starve ourselves for 24 hours in order to undergo the operation, so we’re not allowed to eat any content for a while…doctor’s orders. FEAR NOT: GamesRadar is not broken, lost, or in the hands of Anonymous. Give us a day or so and we should come roaring back with newly enhanced bionic badassery!”

What's happening?
During this update, we'll be shifting a lot of content around. While you will be able to read the site, we won't be adding any new content once the update starts, and you won't be able to log in to GamesRadar or post any comments during that time.  Immediately after the update ends, you may not be able to see your full activity history on your profile, but that should also return.

When and for how long?
The update is beginning the morning of Sunday, August 21, and will end mid- to late-day on Monday, August 22.

Why are we doing this?
For one, the updates we're putting into place will mean our content is posted faster to get to you more quickly. Second, we're always looking to make GamesRadar easier to use. Here are some of the cool new features you can expect on the new GR:

• Get more of what you like: The site will now recommend articles (news, features, reviews, previews) based on what you're reading
• Reply to comments: Start a conversation within the conversation by responding directly to GamesRadar editors and your fellow readers
• Today's most popular stories: See what the community is buzzing about via a new must-read sidebar

So, thank you for your patience, and we hope to see you on the new-and-improved GamesRadar soon!

The GamesRadar Team

    If the update is so good, why the F*** do i always get a "Page Doesn't exist" page every five seconds. Oh and the password thing keeps screwing up.

    This sounds a lot like Cracked's format, really. They have 3 to 4 articles a day, and at the bottom of any article there is a list of related articles. You can reply directly to a person (though it is limited). No "What's Popular" function that I know of, but eh. Hopefully the new format will actually be better XD

    I was like, what? Something's wrong? This means cool bowling.
  • beezn - August 21, 2011 11:28 a.m.

    will this update the forums so that image embeds don't require users to write HTML and simply hit a button? That would surely be appreciated!
  • robotmand - August 21, 2011 11:27 a.m.

    Will there be a mobil version of gamesradar so that i can check your awesome content on my 3DS?

    As long as you never end up like IGN or Gamespot, you can do what ya like. Best gaming website on the internet, bar none.

    How about you fix the video player or get a better one? The quality keeps shifting and it loads really slow at times
  • MCN2011 - August 21, 2011 10:20 a.m.

    Why are those two guys in the picture having sex?
  • SuspendedIrrelevance - August 21, 2011 10:18 a.m.

    potpan0: Yo dawg, I heard you like conversations...
  • InfinityPrimo - August 21, 2011 9:29 a.m.

    "Converseption" = Classic
  • jackthemenace - August 21, 2011 8:56 a.m.

    Conversation within the comments? sounds good :D One thing I'd quite like would be to edit/delete comments? That way, When Funky Pickle does call me out on some stupid error, can just edit it so it's right and make him look like an idiot :D
  • CykoBlade - August 21, 2011 7:38 a.m.

    Awesome. Gamesradar just keeps getting better and better.
  • potpan0 - August 21, 2011 7:30 a.m.

    Start a conversation within a conversation? Converseption!
  • Spartan11794 - August 21, 2011 7:30 a.m.

    The forums really should be updated as well
  • Bamboo - August 21, 2011 7:09 a.m.

    Does this mean no more reCaptcha?
  • FunkyPickle - August 21, 2011 7:07 a.m.

    ...and I can't reply to them properly. My bad, I suppose I should call myself out on that one.
