It's looking good!  What were we using for the frontend in early 2017?  Whatever it was, I liked it.  This is great too and I'm assuming it's easier to update.

Looks good :)

The only thing I would say is that the slider at the top doesn't really add anything of any value to the site, and is part of the reason that it is taking upwards of 4 seconds to load the page.

What CSSIgniter theme are you using out of interest?

Also, it might be worth looking at the way games are listed within categories, as currently, they are in a blog archive, making the process of finding a specific game (in categories that have large lists of games) a pain in the rear.
