The new Eurogamer - four days on

A full list of fixes and tweaks.

The new look Eurogamer is now four days old and, as with any redesign of this scale, there's been a handful of teething problems to iron out.

We're listening to all your feedback and have been hard at work making improvements and hunting down bugs. Just to keep you all in the loop, here's a list of all the tweaks we've made to the front-end of the site so far.

Changes are being rolled out daily and there's plenty more on the way, including an imminent fix for the iPhone app.

Thanks for your continued support!
