    It's a nice layout, but uses images intensively and takes a while to download.

    I like the logo, it suits the concept

    I think that you got a very creative design, I didn't get much into the usability, just because I don't really have time for that right now.

    I think that the header has alot going on, maybe it's a good thing because it would cater to the audience that your shooting for, but it's really "in your face" and although your probably too far into the design stage, I would maybe tone all the stuff down a bit.

    Other than that it's a great site -- although there doesn't seem to be much harmony in your colors. It seems like your different portals have different colors for link structure.

    I would 100% consider finding a more consistant color scheme with your content and breaking it down into a hiearchy of colors. It can hinder usability when people don't know what to expect next.

    your colors should be a guide so they intuitively know where to look on the page and what they are clicking on in order to guide them around the page

    but your a great artist, and it looks pretty cool

    Looks nice - the layout reminds me of newgrounds.com too much though, as a matter of fact the design style actually looks similar to some of the older newgrounds.com designs.

    It's very nice looking! I would add a bread crumb feature on navigation. So if I'm at the home page then the background color of "HOME" tab is white or something.

    It is a real professional work and I honestly don't think it needs any reviews as majority of sites being reviewed here are build by first timers or relative newbies.

    I do not prefer dark sites (black background) but that is a personal preference and not a critique. It works very well for your genre and the design is solid. I like the console style in the design the images pops and the text is easy to read.

    The favicon is very neat too although you might consider making the background of it transparent or white instead of black. If only because it matches the url box on most browsers. Really thats such a small detail... Its hard to criticize because I really like the design. I suspect perhaps this is why it took so long for you to get reviews. Its just a good job.

    Even the forum flows right into the design, very well done. What BB app did your use?

    Well Done.

    It is kinda purdy...but the code is as clean as a dirty wh0re (tables for layout, no semantics, markup errors) and there is very little of the typical UI feedback like hovers (or some type of feedback) for buttons and whatnot. I am impressed with the Photoshop work but it is IMO a glorified mockup, exported with HTML that shouldn't really be used.

    Sites do indeed "get away" with being so bloated and old school all the time, but if built in 2007, your page should really use a strict doctype and validate without error (warnings are fine as long as you know why they occur - it is a warning not an error).

    No problem - and just to reiterate - it looks great - the code could use some love and attention though.

    It is not easy to cover every base on a project of any scale - you have covered a great many of them already and that's a good thing.

    Finally, at least you have a focus and a concept that is pretty fleshed out, which is a substantial achievement in and of itself.

    as for me, too small print on too darkly background makes too heavy impression, this site is for entertainment that's why it could be more "easy" and arresting

    THAT one
    Its just sticking my eyes... I had to block it so I could calm myself and look at all the rest of it. Its cool but maybe you should reduce the amount of images like calibreeze said...
