Well, something I'd wanted to do for awhile now was make it so that staff members can write one review for a multi-platform game and have it show up on several game profile pages. It sucks that a site like IGN can generate one review, then spread it out amongst its channels and look more industrious than HonestGamers, which might well do the same amount of work or even more.
Well, that's fixed. Now when a site staff member submits a Playstaton 2 review (just as an example), he can say "Hey, this review also is perfectly accurate for the Xbox and GameCube versions of the game!"
There's a little more to it than that, but the days when a staff member would have had to go to each system and submit multiple reviews are gone. The site now tracks such things and displays the reviews accordingly. For a test, I've updated lasthero's review of Medal of Honor: European Assault so that it shows under the GameCube and Xbox versions, even though it's the Playstation 2 version he reviewed.
Why did I pick lasthero's review? It was the newest multi-platform game staff members have currently reviewed. I hope to experiment again soon with a review of my own for Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. I bet you're all just tingling with excitement, aren't you?

Tingling with testosterone. I thought, however, you wanted different screens for specific versions of the same game, but now you just place reviews of a game for different versions wherever you please? IRONIC!
