With the addition of John Callaham to the team who has an extensive gaming journalist background, we've been pushing out quite a lot of gaming news lately.

We'll also be covering E3 this year by sending him (first time we'll be at the event ourselves).

And we wanted to know, after a week of gaming coverage, if we're doing alright?

Critique welcomed, and of course any ideas on how we can present it better on the main page.

I like most of it but dislike some, however that's the same with any news so I simply don't click on the ones that I know won't interest me. It has been interesting to read about the Sony stuff and usually before/at the same time as other sites cover it. John is a good writer so his stories are easy reading :)

Again we are hoping to expand our gaming news and feature coverage but as Steven said we would definitely would like to see feedback from all of you on what we can do better.

We also plan to post up exclusive interviews with game developers later this month and of course we will be attending E3 2011. I have personally attended every E3 since 1997 so you will have a real veteran walking around the Los Angeles Convention Center covering the show for Neowin..if you have any particular games that you want me to focus my attention on during the show please let me know and I will do my best to give it to you.

Thanks again for your interest and support.

Good to see more gaming news, and that's great that you're going to E3, I'm sure you'll have fun.

P.S. I'm very jealous :p

Pretty good actually and it's a welcome thing on the front page =3 Though I admit when I first saw your name I wonder if you are the John Callaham who is from Joystiq hehee.

IMO I think the gaming news has been better than a lot of the main news (even though I also read Kotaku). I'd say it's in the right direction.

I would say go easy on the things like sales and stuff since a lot of the online retailers are always having sales (talking about the "Thursday..." article) unless it was over the EA week long sale on Steam or something like that.

People also need to be consistent. There's a new front page article with Sony but it's not showing up as gaming (which it should be).

Apologies. I forgot to mark the news as gaming before submitting it. I edited that now so it's appearing under the Gaming tab. :)
