    Same. I'm glad to see such a jump in front page news, especially seeing that it's members contributing it. For a long time before, the front page barely moved. This is a great improvement.

    Definitely a great break from the homebrew/contest spree I was seeing.

    Great job guys, teamwork.

    Well the homebrew news (and hacking news) is pretty much what sets this site apart from whatever other gaming site. I understand that it was ignoring general gaming news to the benefit of homebrew, but there needs to be a balance.

    True but when the home page is only homebrew, and contests it gets a bit plain. This is a nice change of pace, but I don't want it to be only be USN.

    I'd prefer a mix compared to the "gaming news only" stint that was going on a few months ago.

    But yeah there's some homebrew projects that could use coverage.
