COE 2.5 Blog
Even though we won't be at E3 this year, we're going to be watching and covering the live streams of the conferences just like everyone else. Click on the reminders for the CoverItLive feeds!
So...what's the deal with our reviews? Scoring and format have been called into question with the recent reviews we've been putting on as things haven't been consistent. Let's clarify everything with this post.
Time for another slew of features for our reviews. Say what? Caving in to metacritic? [google1]
First off, we’re really sorry about not keeping a consistent layout. In my last update, we were forced to change the theme in order to make it compatible with our community plugin, BuddyPress. Sadly, after a week of use, we’ve learned the following: free compatible themes with BuddyPress are [...]
Can you believe it? 7 years online. Most game sites die during this lifespan, but we’re here to stay. Even though we have only a small fraction of readers compared to other game media giants, we are thankful for every read we get, particularly when they’re associated with comments. We’re [...]
So here we are once more with some fresh new community features ready to be unleashed to the public. Basically, a WordPress plugin called BuddyPress has given us the power to turn our site into a mini-Facebook of sorts. In other words, you can interact with other members via posting on their own [...]
You have to love the internet. Every day, programmers just feel the need to contribute to connecting the world together. Social Media sites like Facebook inspired so much. I mean, look at this site. I’ve never imagined the ability to accomplish all this connectivity based on plugins alone. [...]
You’ll notice that we’ve revamped our dashboard menus, which include two methods of browsing our content: by gaming company or by platform type. Also, special features will now include all our cool articles that you’ll only see on COE: like editorials, video game music rants, and gaming logs. [...]

Hi all, I wanted to let you know what we’re planning on doing moving forward. Ever since we expanded to the blog format, we’ve had a content explosion. We now post info on home movies, comics, and whatever else tickles our fancy. We don’t plan to stop that anytime soon. What we do plan to stop [...]
Finally, I’ve been yearning for this functionality for so long. After searching through various plugins, I’ve finally found, installed, and activated a very nifty one named “Simple Facebook Connect” by a dude named Otto. As most of you WordPress users know, the old FB connect plugins are glitchy [...]
I hope you’ve been enjoying all the post-E3 coverage, people. I know I have. Our guys have worked their butts off to get their hands on the latest games, chatting up with developers, and finally uploading the media to the site. Let’s state the obvious: some site redesigning. WordPress 3.0 has [...]
Yep, we’ve been online for 6 years as of today! How exciting is this?! Also, it’s been a year since we’ve relocated to a blog in order to interact with you guys more. Grab your glasses and throw the confetti; we’re not going anywhere anytime soon! While we’re happy that we have 3 active commenters [...]
