    This news posting could use better formatting to make it easier to read.

    I agree.
    It seems just kind of scrunched up...but I guess it's only when there's a bunch of news to add (it's E3 season, what do you expect!).

    Hopefully the formatting will start looking better in the future...

    how about something like this:



    Putting all the news items in a scroll box, using a better formatting.
    Could be a good idea to have more content without stretching the portal vertically.

    Hmm, a scroll box might be a good idea. I have an alternative layout (different to the scroll box idea), but it goes against the idea of news being zero clicks away.
