A few things that spring out:

Logo:
- The "games" is too bright on that background.
- There's a white halo around the ring that makes up the dot that looks odd. I'm guessing that you made the logo on a white background and was supposed to look transparent, but it's on a grey background now. Try setting a different background color for the logo (in your image editor) or use an image format that supports proper transparency (like PNG).

Rest:
- The "New Computer Game" is also very bright. It's readable on that dark green background, buty it doesn't look that well IMHO.
- All the small game buttons could really do with a text link with the game title below their buttons. It's hard to read the titles from the small images.
- The small buttons are also very densely packed. It makes the page look very busy. Perhaps use only three per category box and add some margins/whitespace? That would also give you more room to put your titles (see previous point)
- Nitpick: I dislike javascript hover popups, but that's personal. However, I detest them less when they simply appear and disappear in a predictable location and don't follow the cursor around.

Legal:
That's a lot of games you offer there. Are you sure you have the rights to sell them and offer free trial downloads of them?

Thanks! These are all great suggestions. I'll get to work implementing immediately!

Yep, It's legal. I have a relationship with a larger publisher.

It's definitely improved readability for the games categories. Nice work.

One small nitpick: In the category boxes that now contain two games, the images are nicely spaced horizontally but they are straight against the box header. I suggest you put some padding between the header of the box and the images.
