I'm a long time visitor of warp2search and it's nice to see the news machine up and running again, having to check the main page a few times a day not to miss any news...
I do have a suggestion about the demos coming from Demo News. If you're insisting on posting about such games as Atomic Cannon, Lifetime R.S.V.P., Machines at War and all, could you just pack it in one news ? Post a list once a day ?

Demonews isn't the typical 3d shooter rehash site though. It more of the quick, fun free/cheap arcade stuff. Games that don't require a lifestyle change to learn.

I really think those new should be abolished completely ... I mean .. I like game news ... but it should be news like "Quake 3 Arena is now Open Source" or some other major news
If I want to know about any little demo out there I can visit demonews directly!
W2S was always about tech news and not game demos and I think a lot of ppl. will stop visiting the site if this "spam" continues

But I don’t think it is fair to call it spam though. Of the last 50 post there was one from DemoNews and that as pretty neat piece of freeware. Of the last few posted, they were some of the most highly viewed by the readers – so some people like them.
Personally, sure I think the latest Quake or Halo news is sexier than a nice pac-man clone but there are a lot of folks who would like to know about the pac-man clone – so I don’t think that style of game should be ignored simply because it is not a top ten 3d accelerated game. Also, if you are going to cover some games – you should try and different styles.
In a nutshell I think what I am trying to say is all tech and no play makes geeks dull boys.
At then end of the day though – there’s just a couple of us, with other gigs, trying very hard to resurrect what w2s used to be and move it forward. We’ve only been at it a few days. It’s going to take a little time to get a feel for everything – so please let us know how we are doing. But also, please be patient with some of our personal indulgences.
