Look and Feel of Neo

Bill Loguidice's picture

One thing that has been playing on my mind as I've been going to other Websites is that we must take great pains to make the look of the new Armchair Arcade as distinctive as possible. Blog/news sites are a dime a dozen and we must truly differentiate ourselves from them. Again, while the current Armchair Arcade is broken from a functionality standpoint, in its favor, to the outside world everything looks just about right as rain and it has a unique look that's not quite like anything else out there. We need something distinctive, bold and yes, still intuitive on Neo. I hope we all keep that in mind as we generate graphics and think about layout and content. It makes people think we're the real thing and not just "another" Website/magazine. That thinking is very clear with the reaction to the current Website...

It would be nice if we could

It would be nice if we could get the occasional article from you in Dutch, as long as you had a good proofreader as a second set of eyes. We've always tried to be international and goodness knows I'm necessarily US-focused.

No one is saying you should stop doing anything else and no one is singling you out in particular, obviously. I know next to me, you're the most active right now on the AA forums and have certainly contributed articles quite recently.

Dutch....

Well the two gamers in our country frequenting AA (MrCustard and me) are not enough for me to be willing to write articles in Dutch ;) There's no need to actually. All Dutch gamers read English pretty well and are very English oriented. English is like a mandatory 2nd language for most young people over here in the Netherlands so I think I would be better of writing in English to have the biggest audience possible. ;)

The whole Dutch population accounts to as much as the whole population of NYC about 14 to 16 million people.....
