Actually a pretty good design overall. It's dark for my taste, and the animations need tweaking - either they're overdone or a bit wonky, like the hover over on cards sort of wobbles the card a bit without knowing what it's trying to do; and the color change on hover over is a bit drastic on the top cards. But still not bad, some nice touches and everything works pretty well. Nice solid layout.

You are looking at the old demo :( but can you please clarify on the part I quoted anyway ;)

good gawd

hth did you see that?

I am trying to look for it on the OP demo link, but can't see stuff all...

what is wrong with that top hover over?

do see that the cards seem to be 'linked', if you go between them you still have the click hand

Lol it's kind of nitpicky but that stuff bugs me when I do it myself.

The top hover transition is just too drastic, IMO. It's a nice effect and all but I'd tone it down because it feels like a camera zoom or something.

Thanks. The blocks in the video have been removed and replaced. Refer to the screenshot on the previous page :)

I have slightly adjusted the hover background tint on the slider's images now from a rgba(0,0,0,0.7) to rgba(0,0,0,0.4) value.

The new demo will be uploaded in a short while :p

New demo link (different domain)

Made a lot of changes since the last demo. Some more changes, optimizations and enhancements to come :)

Here's some of the changes / improvements I have made with this new demo.

- New home page layout
- New layout for child categories such as PC / PS4 / XBOX ONE reviews. Main categories have the same page for now. Their pages will be updated in the next demo
- Hover colors on buttons and the menu changed from purple on white to white on purple
- Hover animations on buttons and the menu have been changed and is a lot smoother now
- Hover opacity on featured posts on the home page have been adjusted
- Social sharing buttons replaced with new buttons. Buttons are now located at the bottom of reviews / articles
- Polls added because they're awesome
- Most recent posts on the home page will display 6 posts which can be filtered
- "Lazy loading" added for images
- Date removed from the trending post section
- Disqus comment system integrated
- A notification will pop up on Internet Explorer and older versions of the Edge, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Firefox browsers notifying the user that their browser is out of date and should be updated for the best browsing experience on VideoGamer.co.za. The notification contains icons with links to pages of the browsers

Let me know what you guys think :D

That....actually looks like a site I might use.
I think either the font size on the recent items should be smaller though, or different items need to be coded somehow with an icon or a colour or something. Maybe more like the size of the poll font. Maybe a small title to separate them. I mean I have to read the entire title to figure out what it is when I wanna know at a glance.

I mean at the moment it's a bit clickbaity. Trailer looks identical to review and the extra text is such an insignificant amount it might as well not be there at all. So the image has to do just about all the lifting, hence a bit clickbaity.

The articles are "fake" articles. It's just for demo purposes ROFL
