Hey guys!

If you haven't already checked out the new version of the site, visit IT'S AWESOME. Seriously. Go visit now.

I have been panning for broken links, and so far I have found two. Basically, Nithle, the page containing the pokémon mystery dungeon: explorers of sky review actually contains the Ring of Fates review. Nothing big, but I was a little confused... Secondly, you could sort reviews in terms of series. I know you've already done this, but for th...

HTML Site Logo

Posted by chumble on October 6, 2010 at 3:43 PM Comments comments (9)

For the HTML site that Nithle has been working on, the bar at the top of the page (the one with 'Gaming Pool' and that gradient effect background?) looks a bit dull compared to the '' one. As a result, I decided to create a concept title bar for this site 

What do you think? Any good? Please tell me your opinion, guise.

Final Fantasy XIV Tomorrow!

Posted by Pl511 on September 29, 2010 at 11:56 AM Comments comments (1)

Final Fantasy's coming out tomorrow. Looks good, and, from what I've heard, is good. I love RPGs, so I'm hoping I'lllike this. However, there are two things bothering me.

1. Subscription fee. Because its an MMORPG, there will likely be one. I'm not really willing to fork out that much money just so I can play this game. Sure I'll pay the initial cost, but having a subscription for a single game seems a bit of a waste.

2. Time limit. Apparently you can only level for 8 hours a week...

Look to the top left of your web page now, and you should see something a little new. I know its not great, but at least it replaces the empty 'page' icon that used to be in its place.

Anyway, content wise, there hasn't been anything recent. But as you can see from his blog post, Nithle is creating an HTML version of this site that will give him (and hopefully me) a bit more control over hosting and the design of a site. This will probably cost a little money (and a lot of Nithle's time...

Gaming Pool's New Look

Posted by Pl511 on July 28, 2010 at 5:46 PM Comments comments (1)

Sorry for no recent action from me, but for the last two weeks and a bit I've been at a DI4R camp and also on a cycling trip in Grantham. Anyway, as you have probably (or HOPEFULLY) or all noticed, Gaming Pool has a new look. I decided to change it because the old "Leaf" design stopped working for me. If anyone has any suggestions for the colour of the lightning, I can choose from a few different colours so comment me. I choose purple as I thought it looked the coolest, but if...

All My Sister's Computer Are Belong To Us...

Posted by Pl511 on July 14, 2010 at 4:19 AM Comments comments (0)

As you can see from the Pokémon Rumble and the Explorers of Sky review (and the obsessively large guide to Pokémon Rumble), this week I'm trying to make up for all my previous inactivity. Basically, after a long time I've finally decided to put some work into Gaming Pool.

Okay, now I've got a question I think everyone has been asking - where is the Spartan - Total Warrior review? I mean, I know that SpottyCows has done it, but has it been uploaded or not? I'm prett...
