Introducing Joystiq's newest sibling: Big Download (Beta)!
Have you ever found that there was something missing from the Joystiq family? We've got your Xbox 360 news covered here at X3F and those other guys have their sites too. Even handhelds have a place to call home along with MMO aficionados and WoW addicts, but something has been missing. Until now.
Today we're happy to give PC gamers a place to call their own with our new sister site, Big Download. In partnership with out good friends at GameDaily, we're taking the protective cover off the beta version of our fully-featured, fast and free PC downloads engine married to a news and features blog powered by the Joystiq Network.
At Big Download you'll get all the news and features you've come to expect from a Joystiq family member, with some familiar blogging faces (like me!), along with a file tracking system that remembers your favorite games and best of all, no waiting in line for downloads. Big Download offers you a one-stop shop for free of charge access to demos, patches, mods, trailers and more!
We invite you to visit us and start poking around while we tinker away at our new baby. Like any modern web product we're launching in beta version -- there may be kinks and rough edges to be worked out, so bear with us, mind the dust and be sure to send us any feedback you have so we can make all the final fixes. So drop in, mind the dents and join us because before you know it we're going to drop that beta tag and come out guns-o-blazing. Big Ol' Guns.
We hope to see you at Big Download, where all the news is big and all the downloads are above average!

As long as you guys don't start posting those nearly constant lists Gamedaily puts up (Top Videogame Chicks, Top Limited Edition Consoles, etc) then this is great.

It always amazes me to no end when a bunch of people take months to create a nice site like this one and then forget to include a blasted favicon.
A favicon. It's 2008 now ok? Thanks..
Nice site by the way.

Actually we do have one.
Also, as I said a few times in this post... we're in Beta.
We're not fully-operational yet. Think Death Star Episode VI not Episode IV.

I was wondering when their would be the equivalent of a "PC Fanboy" Joystiq spin off. Looks good!

Take a sumo wrestler, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and Strong Sad and you'll get BD's mascot.

Pretty sweet addition. You know what I think you should really add? A forum. Now that would be awesome.

Anything that partners with AOL is lame. I went there and have java disabled for aol.com and just see a large black space on the main page.
