So I just finished upgrading all my old pages to being mobile-friendly. *whew* At least that was my intention. Apparently they still don't format correctly on all phones (cough*Actraiser*cough) so I will continue to investigate that.

Anyway please let me know if the mobile site looks good or bad for you. Also, let me know if I screwed up anything on the main site in the process.

One set of pages that took me forever to revamp are the Video Game Mania pages. These were very old and fallen into disrepair. Now they look a lot better and are even passable on a mobile device. If you haven't seen these, look at the bottom of the archives. I used to throw big elaborate video game tournaments back in the day. I think you'll find these recaps pretty hilarious.

Home page looks weird on my ipad now. The Missile War screenshot is huge, and everything else is taking up half the screen.

Yikes! I just uploaded a fix. Thanks for the heads up!

I noticed the "themed" special pages (Batman, pirates) were messed up so I fixed them.

Do you think the font size is big enough on the mobile pages?

I think I might need to make the "read more" link a bit bigger.

I don't know if it's new or i just noticed it, but I like the tagline on the front page. I love the ambitious goal!

Don't know what you did, Critic, but the pictures on the main page are sized perfectly on my Galaxy S7 instead of being oversized. Thank you!

One small thing I've always found odd is that the Header "The Video Game Critic" on the message board pages (mobile version, at least) is not a hyperlink back to the main page as it seems to be on all the review pages.

Not a big deal, but I think that's a handy feature on the other pages.

I have noticed on the mobile site when using a mobile device, that I occasionally cannot post due to spamhaus interaction. I have no idea why this is happening, as I do not solicit, spam, or do any bulk emails. Very strange.
