@antdickens Please, can you do something about the headlines?

They are sometimes confusing to read, as you use capital letters at the beginning of every new word. Sometimes it's hard to tell what the title of the game is, when it doesn't stand out.

For example, what is easier to read, this:

NEWS Killer Ducks And Deadly Chickens Star In Blazing Beaks, A Twin-Stick Shooter Out On Switch Today

or this:

NEWS Killer ducks and deadly chickens star in Blazing Beaks, a twin-stick shooter out on Switch today

?

Readability is very important. Just my thoughts.

@Quarth it's called Title Case and it's an editorial stylistic choice that we've used since day one - it's a common style choice across news publications. You don't capitalise every single word though, so it would be more like:

"Killer Ducks and Deadly Chickens Star in Blazing Beaks, a Twin-Stick Shooter Out On Switch Today"

It's not something we're looking at changing to be honest, but it's useful feedback

Or if your worried about getting into retail, returns Ect. you at least a couple of times a year have some fun giveaways where you give them away. RULES: One entry per Household and Size desired must be stated at time of entry or a random size will be selected. and of course Sorry no returns or exchanges as this was a free giveaway and sizes where deter-mend at entry.

@antdickens Maybe you can put game titles in commas?

NEWS Killer Ducks And Deadly Chickens Star In "Blazing Beaks", A Twin-Stick Shooter Out On Switch Today

"You don't capitalise every single word though"

But every word is capitalised in your headlines. Or do I misunderstand your answer?

Thanks for the reply, anyway.

Maybe the game name could be a darker shade of color compared to the rest of the title

Yeah I don’t know either.

Yeah, or like italicized or something.

The main reason why I make game titles bold in many of my posts is to make them easier to read and to make them stand out.
