Welcome to the new Thunderbolt!


Welcome to the twelfth version of Thunderbolt!

After four months of work, we’re delighted to share the new design. As well as a bunch of boring backend changes, there are a number of new features we hope you’ll find helpful.

The new visual design removes all clutter from the reading experience on article pages and features bigger, bolder imagery. Articles from today will also have HD screenshots Рjust click them to load the larger version.

You can now navigate using tags such as FIFA, Nintendo and The future of games. This is really useful for looking through franchises or articles which have a similar topic.

There are also a number of smaller enhancements, such as the ‘Games worth playing’ box, a page for the Thundercast and a more intelligent search engine.

We hope you enjoy the new site and if you have any questions or comments, let us know in the comments or in the forum.
