Lego Video Games Should Be This Cool I like most of the Lego video games. They present breezy opportunities to fight and explore. Their charm compensates for an over-emphasis on collecting things. I like these games, but I don't think they are as magnificent yet as this concept art for the spring's Lego Pirates of the Caribbean suggests they could be.

I know a million things have prob been said about the new format, but my only request is that there's a scroll bar on the nav bar on the right. This new format is fine but i don't want to either hit next headlines or use the scroll wheel.

Make it easier for your users to find articles and stay on your site longer. If now you only have the banner ad on the right then be able to say that your users stay on the site for longer periods of time, i'm sure it will help gawker ad rates.

I thought of this because of this "big stories" post. There were always stories/posts of the week but now of the day? It seems necessary because people won't scroll all the way down to see important posts but really disappointing.
