Request:
Under http://www.macgamest...ws/newreleases/ I would like to be able to click the headlines. Also, would it be possible to post the genres next to each release? Otherwise the list is a bit useless IMO.
I'd also like an RSS feed for that list.

Bug:
http://www.macgamestore.com/feeds/ is empty. Nothing there. NOTHING! ..Which is a bit curious, as you have a huge button for it at the bottom of all pages.


I almost missed that Pony Island is a thing... :crying:

They don't show like this? Or are you saying the RSS feeds are empty. I added game releases to my rss reader and there's a list of things in there.

I see RSS Feeds just fine. All the feed files have plenty in them too.

As for news, whats the point of clicking the headlines? The full body of the article is already displayed. As for genre showing, maybe doable.

A better list to follow is the actual new releases list: http://www.macgamest...es/?viewas=list

Just to note: the news section was never fleshed out, or even planned out at all. It was a 'need it yesterday' addition that has never gotten any attention since, because no one actually manually admins the news articles. They are all automated for what does show up there ;)

Strange, it was completely empty when I looked at it at work. O_o

Oh this is a bit embarrassing.. Some how I missed the link to the game right below the headline....

Underlined links on MGS are not super obvious, easy to miss if they kind of look like something being punctuated.

But yes, the actual new releases listing is better, as its not delayed like news are, and sometimes those automated news articles either vanish, or get created for something that was a goof up. Its an automated system built on the notion people do things by the book. Which doesn't always seem to be the case.
