Did you know if you want to find chill dubstep, you can use our new tag filter within the dubstep genre? Go to the Audio Portal, expand the Electronic category on the left, click Dubstep, then below the category box type "chill" into the "Filter by Tags" box. The result will be this.

Try it with whatever tags and genres you like!

You can also do this with games and movies. For example, Here are all Adventure Horror games of all time, sorted by score.

Our system for browsing, sorting and filtering genres is impressive, take some time this weekend to familiarize yourself with it!

Is "Best New Games and Movies" new? Are those ones that don't show up in the top 5-10, or just the most recent high(ish) scoring submissions out of the portal?

if that's not new, wtf have I been doing

They were there before with two notable differences (we jiggled that stuff around a bit over the past couple of days):

1. They were in list format (so just plain text links)
2. There was nothing there to prevent them including any of the daily winners. Now that list only contains stuff that hasn't currently been picked as a daily winner.

Are you finding that stuff a bit more eye-catching?

Wow, the top five movies are all based on original material, I think this is the first time that's happened in 2013! Great month overall. nice to see Dave's NATA entry in the top 5 and Sif's entry not far after that.

Blown Minded was amazing as well, glad it got included.

Yes, definitely, though it's pretty low on the page. The only reason I noticed it was because I was looking at the daily message. It would be neat if we could move those pods around too.

Yeah, that might be interesting... or maybe even dismiss/promote pods you don't or do want. We should probably do that for the parts on the right of the page as well.

I really enjoyed River city Ridiculous as well. The animation is so incredibly sloppy that it just... adds to the whole thing :D Even the trash can sound effect being nothing more than a crinkly soda can was great. Even as silly as it is, I know a ton of work went into it; I think it deserves a better score than it got. Ah well.

I see you reviewed it as well! Crazy plot, crazy animation and a dern nice frame rate! Glad Tom spotted such a Newgroundsian gem! Works like this used to be commonplace here, as were the one-hit wonders, who published and were never heard from again :( The author's YouTube statement was quite succinct.... gotta love the quiet (creative) ones!
