I just got done adding columns to my database for a rating system, and now my code is running like a dream. At least for the time being, games are rated on a 5 star system, which is actually a 1 to 10 system that uses half stars every other value.
I also played around with Google's Font API and got a nice shadow effect added for the content headers.
New featured section complete with rating system
I think it's time to grab another cup of coffee and get my login/registration system in place.
