Did they change the text or something?
All I see is a sentence that says
"As everyone under 35 knows and as the mainstream press is discovering, games are now youth's unofficial pastime.
I don't see anything at all about whether games are a pastime for people over 35 or not.
In any case, the following statement which they made displays astounding ignorance:
it's about time someone made it easy to get all the information you need to decide which games to buy and how to get past the boss at the end of the first level.
As if all games had some dumb boss at the end of every level. Most genres don't. It isn't just adventures that don't. And as if walkthroughs and cheats had never been invented before.
They also say
To all you loyal Games Domain fans, your favorite site is in good hands. Yahoo! has deep respect for what Games Domain built. Some of us even remember Games Domain when it was a text-only 'zine distributed through FTP servers.
I can only hope this means that they simply haven't gotten their old reviews and patch links back online yet. But I'm not holding my breath.
