It's very cluttered to me. I think it's much harder to find what you need now, but it's just the one page and you can get behind it fairly easily.

I have left feedback to say that I hate it. Before this new home page I could find what I want with one click, i.e. Tomorrow's Game today, but on this new home page, I could only find today's Deal, and had to find what I want by circumvented means. If I am doing something wrong, can someone please sort me out. rotfl12

We are mostly all Club Members who visit this site, and we all know full well what other projects that BFG offer, so why preach to the converted??

Phew.......... I feel so much better now after that vent LOL santadance

I felt the changes were minor. I had no trouble finding my old haunting areas.

I have learned that BFG frequently makes site changes and this one was small in comparison to others that they have made.

I agree with much of what you said, Rosaboobie. I found TGT under the "account" tab. There's also no weekly deal that I could find. Did they do away with that? wave12

At the bottom of the first column (Download Games) is "see more." When you click on that, you'll see the page we're all accustomed to. Actually, I like the new page and having all the gaming options spelled out in one spot.

Seems cluttered and accessing what I wanted wasn't intuitive. But I think it's just a matter of getting familiar with the change. I imagine I'll figure it all out eventually. crazy

All you have to do is click on the top left tab that says PC games and you will find the old home page. The daily game, weekly game and TGT are all there like always. Change is hard... lol12

I DON'T like it! I clicked on "DOWNLOAD GAMES ganes for pc and Mac" and it takes you to the original page which we all know and love! I bookmarked that page and it takes me right there. If you want to go back to the new home page click on the Big Fish logo . yes

I played with it last night and figured it out and so this morning was easy to click on the one tab. I actually like the home page.

I hadn't seen the change until it was mentioned in this thread.

I personally think it looks better, more organized. To me, the old home page was too busy, too crowded. I have a terrible time navigating busy pages.

Change is always going to take place, especially online. That doesn't mean it's bad, just different. And something that requires a bit of getting used to.

"Highland Park is the greatest all-rounder in the world of malt whisky."

So said one of the world's experts on all things whisky. And he's right.

Enjoy!

I played with it last night as well and I also like it. It really isn't too bad once you get to know it a little and you absolutely can bookmark the page you want and never have to worry about the rest of it if you'd like and so in that case it's really whatever your preference is. :)

As long as I can still buy my games, I'm okay with it. LOL

Ok, now that I have slept on this issue (well not slept exactly cos the wind was so strong in the night it kept me awake!), I now see that the new Home Page is not as bad as I thought. Just 2 clicks of the mouse, instead of one, to get me back to Home Sweet Home. lol12

Boobie, just one click. Just click on the PC Games tab under the words "A New" Game Everyday. Glad it's not as bad today. grin12

I don't mind the new layout.

BTW, are the Streaming Games still just for
US customers? Does anybody know?

Flo, I just looked this question up in the "help" section on Big Fish and it says the following:

Quote:
Currently, Big Fish Unlimited is only available to players in the United States.


Maybe this will change in the future. wave12
