    Like the new site design, definately an improvement! Keep up the good work guys!

    They didn’t offer the coin in Australia 🙁 Hope I win! 🙂

  2. Schmullus says:

    Love the new design. If there was one thing to add, I would have to say add comic navigation to the top of the comics as well as the bottom as it already is.

  3. Kalava says:

    I like the site much better now, even though I’m rather new to comic. Maybe it kills the nostalgia to the old design, I don’t know, but it’s still really good.

    I did preorder the game, I even finished it last night, but the coin wasn’t offered in Finland.

  4. cc says:

    Like the design a lot better than last, but the header (as great as it looks) takes away from the actual comic itself.

    Keep up the great work!

  5. Metal_Link says:

    Tabs are the way of the future!

    I like it. Just as much as I liek Mudkipz.

  6. Spandi says:

    It certainly looks better but perhaps the top image is a bit too busy? Just a suggestion 🙂

  7. Rydash says:

    I like it, but, perhaps some warning would have been better at first. It’s a pretty drastic change.

    Scared me. 😛

  8. Pie says:

    If you made the top picture(the two of you) smaller, I would like it. It would be less scolling for me. Thanks.

  9. Arlen says:

    I love the new site. The tabs are especially cute (you know, in a manly way). The only suggestion I would offer would be to move Tim and Ray from up top (where they take up a lot of real estate) to the sides of the page (the area currently in gray, outside of the white comic/blog space). You can definitely keep the “2P START!” at the top of the page, though.

    Anyway, that’s a very small critique on an otherwise fantastic-looking design. Take what I say with a massive grain of salt and keep up the great (and hilarious) work!

  10. Guilherme says:

    The new site design looks great, but the only complain that I have (well, not really a complain, but still) is that the top picture is too big, and that could be an issue for people with lower resolutions.. other than that, it’s awesome! 🙂

  11. Bob says:

    I like the new design, but the width of the main column only takes up ~75% of my browser window, running at 1024×768. Other than that minor inconvenience, keep up the good work!

  12. flamingsquirrel says:

    I like the new design, but whats with the comment number ocvering up the comments?

  13. The tabs are terrific, but the picture header occupies the whole screen in 1024×768 (maximum resolution of my laptop)

  14. Stripey says:

    I had no idea that there was going to be a new design, so when one day I went to your site and all these new changes had happened, I was quite pleasantly surprised.

    I have no problem with the header actually, I think it’s just fine. Just my opinion though. The one thing I would actually change is the background. Right now it’s nothing but gray, perhaps a new colour scheme is in order?

  15. matt says:

    I like the new redesign, I don’t like the size of the new header though. It makes me have to scroll down to see the content.

  16. Ransom says:

    The header and navigation are pretty solid but I don’t like the idea of the comic being directly below them. There really ought to be a separate page for the funnies considering the size of the comic itself. The design you’re using now works for Extra Life and Dueling Analogs because their comics are usually smaller. Good examples of how my suggestion works include 8-Bit Theater, Penny Arcade, and Perry Bible Fellowship. However, a design closer to VG Cats would probably be best for the comic’s size.

    Also, I really really really want that coin. It’s shiny.

  17. Lesha says:

    I must say that I love the design and I like how you have the comic below the header. I have no complaints whatsoever. 😉

  18. Nushio says:

    I really liked the new site. But as Ransom said, you should keep the comic on a separate link, for those 1 or 2 dial-up users still left roaming the internets.

    I’ve been reading this comic ever since it was first featured on Joystiq. Looking forward to it every week!

    Also, Gimme the coin please. I just bought Galaxy today, and it didn’t come with a coin 🙁

  19. Noodle_93 says:

    I love the new design, because it just fits in with the style of comics you two do. My only concern/criticism was that we couldn’t see all the comics in the archives, but you fixed that up quickly.

    On another note, I did preorder Super Mario Galaxy (In Australia) and I don’t get the coin ;_;. Do you do international shipping?

  20. Josh says:

    I like the new design but the thing I would like to add is that the picture of Tim on top is holding the wiimote with his left hand. I just wanted to say that since I’m a Wii owner myself. But maybe there are some people who use their left instead of their right. Hope I win the coin.

  21. Xeno says:

    I enjoy tabs! Hooray for tabs! Tabs are rad. They look like candy. Maybe it’s a flaw that I want to eat your website, or maybe it’s the best plan ever… Only time will tell.

    Either way, I feel it is an improvement over the previous setup.

  22. Greg Webster says:

    I gotta say, it looks pretty slick, but don’t you think that the top is a bit too big?

  23. zhinker says:

    The new design looks awesome, I especially like the top picture. The background could use a bit improving though, not sure what exactly but it doesn’t look as nice as the old one, especially once you scroll past the header stuff.

  24. Cozm0 says:

    I like the new design, but I don’t really care, as long as the comics and podcasts are great. (Which they are.)

  25. R.J. says:

    Love the new design!!

  26. JackiJinx says:

    It looks rather happy, but I noticed that what was at hand (lawlz) are one Wii Mote and Sonic. Although Sonic is technically a non-system affiliated character, all the good games after Sega stopped with their own systems came on Nintendo systems. Good character and the Wiimote is aesthetically pleasing, but they just give the site a kid-friendly/Nintendo seeming appearance. I like the look and wouldn’t stop reading the site because of it, but I thought that should be pointed out in case there’s a feeling that it would turn off potential readers.

  27. Tom says:

    The new site looks pretty cool although the mini sonic always freaks me out when i visit here and i like the cool flamey stuff behind you (a HADOUKEN maybe). keep up the good work with the comics (goomba and koopa one is your best :D)
    loved the mario galaxy review by the way

    later

    The UK also didnt offer the coin 🙁

  28. I38VWI says:

    I do like the new design, it’s very well done.

    I think having arrows to scroll back to other comics at the top of the page, as well as the ones that are already at the bottom of the page, would be a good improvement.

  29. Ray says:

    I think having arrows to scroll back to other comics at the top of the page, as well as the ones that are already at the bottom of the page, would be a good improvement.

    Ironically, I saw this suggestion immediately after I got done sending them to Tim.

  30. Jared Alleyne says:

    I love the new design personally, except I think that the banner is kind of big.

  31. besighyawn says:

    i think the header could be simpler, but it certainly does catch my attention.

  32. Oliver Strano says:

    Great new page design but I would move the Tim and Ray to the base and say “Tim and Ray PRODUCTIONS!” or something of the sort, or make it a little smaller. Other than that it’s a great new site

  33. Jerjerchan says:

    Awesome layout, and Wii controller for the win! =D Keep it up y’all!

  34. Dan says:

    The new design is great! Way better than the old one (on offense).
    But, you could have made the logo at the top a little smaller. The bigger one makes the page too big.

    Anyway, great comic, as always!
