Revamped Site is Now Live!

VC Reviews gets an upgrade
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Your favourite Virtual Console resource has undergone something of a facelift. At first glance the cosmetic changes may seem a bit on the minor side, but it would be an understatement to say that behind the scenes the site has been revolutionized.
You’ll notice there’s now a rather swish new login system (it’s up in the top right hand corner, see?) which will quite literally rock your world. First up, when you’re fully signed up and logged in you will be able to assign yourself an avatar to give your comments that truly personal touch. Secondly, you will be able to submit comments without having to wait for us to approve them. Thirdly, you can edit your already published comments should you wish to, and last but not least, all the games you’ve given ratings to are displayed on your profile. I think you’ll agree the whole thing is pretty fantastic, and as the new site evolves you can expect other cool new features to appear that take advantage of this new system.
Who do we have to thank for all this code-related goodness? None other than Ant Dickens of Nintendo Life. He’s been a friend of Virtual Console Reviews for some time now (he even hosts the site for us) and seeing as he’s something of a whiz when it comes to web programming, we obviously jumped at the chance when he kindly offered to rework and retool the site in order to make it harder, better, faster and stronger. Our heartfelt thanks go out to Ant who has invested a considerable amount of his time to get the updated site up and running.
While we’re on the subject of dishing out thanks and accolades, we’d also like to express our gratitude to Drake, who has gone beyond the call of duty over the past few months to ensure that Virtual Console Reviews remains the number one resource for all things Virtual Console related. We’d also like to thanks Tamra Ross who provides excellent support when it comes to making sure our spelling and grammar is up to scratch.
Enjoy the new site and please don’t hesitate to provide us with feedback and let us know what you think of the changes we’ve made.
