Today we can officially wave goodbye to the horrible old design and give the new design a big warm welcome!
Not only has the look and feel changed, there have also been a few modifications to the way the media section looks too! The forums will also change at some point to reflect this new look too.
I'll be adding quite a few new sections to the site soon, so make sure you stick around for that!
How about an interesting fact? well ok then...
This site is only two months old now (2am 13th December 2009 to be precise), but has become the most popular source for all the latest Just Cause 2 goodies across the world. In this small amount of time, there have been a million hits on the website!
Thank you to all those guys who are showing your support! I really do appreciate it.
Oh yes, and I have something exciting planned within the next week or two which you can all get involved in. I'll post the details up soon!
Regular Just Cause 2 news updates will resume soon with some exciting stuff on the way!

Well guys, I can honestly admit that I myself never really liked the way Panau Island looked. I never thought it would actually be as popular as it is today, and it's only been running for just over a month!
So after giving my office a good tidy and rearranging furniture, I've decided to do the same to this site!
Of course, the functionality is going to be key to the success of this site, and I wanted to know what kind of things you guys would like to see added/changed? For example: Submit news you've found, Photo of the day (post-release).
Also, some of you have mentioned you didn't like the layout of the media section. Here's your chance to have your say in how it looks and functions.
Be sure to head over to the forums to have your say in the new site overhaul!

Big shout out to HHDnB or HHDnBking, it seems Mycoldman has finally answered your cries and released the PS3 Trophy list.
Don't expect there to be much difference between the PS3 trophies and the Xbox 360 achievements, but I guess it's good to know what trophy you will get for each achievement.
Of course, for a platinum trophy, you will need to complete the game 100%.
Head on over to the Xbox 360 Achievements list
and the PS3 Trophy list
which can be found in the Information section.

Well guys, I did promise I would write a story about my Just Cause 2 experience, and I'm pleased to announce that it is now live on the site. Simply navigate your way to the Experiencing JC2
I would like to take this opportunity now to say thanks to the guys at Square Enix/Eidos and Avalanche Studio for making such an awesome game, and a special thanks to Mike Oldman (Mycoldman) for inviting me.
This coming week is going to be packed with new content both here and on the official website. Perhaps we'll get the first glimpse of behind-the-scene footage in the first Vlog, or perhaps another podcast? Maybe both?
Stay tuned for more Just Cause 2 news coming very soon!
Posted 23rd January 2010, 16:10pm by Nick Tags: just cause 2, panau island, site updates
Well, I am super excited about something JC2 related next week and I wish I could tell you why, but sadly that's just something you're going to have to wait and see!
Be sure to keep checking back for an update!
Also, I've been recently looked at the statistics and it seems Panauisland.com
is fast becoming popular in many foreign countries (particularly France: Jeuxvideo.com
), and I know this is mainly a UK based website, but I don't want anyone to miss out on any of the juicy info, so I've added a Google translator for you guys! (see the option on the left)
Parce que je ne veux pas de vous les gars passer à côté de quelque chose, j'ai ajouté un traducteur pour vous!
Porque no quiero que ustedes perderse nada, he añadido un traductor para usted!
I hope you guys find this website a little easier read in your language!
On a side note, I have setup the RSS feed for you guys to subscribe to: Panau Island - Latest News feed

So it's been a while since the Vlog section appeared on the official Just Cause 2 website (www.justcause.com
), but a recent twitter update from mycoldman (twitter.com/mycoldman
) has revealed that the vlogs are on their way very soon!
Filming JC2 vlogs all day. Coming soon to a www.justcause.com near you.
I'm certainly excited about this, and I'm sure most of you are, so hopefully it won't be long before they appear on the official Just Cause 2 website.
I will of course be keeping tabs on this one, so stay tuned for more details!
Also, if you're wondering what the QOTW is, mycoldman has said some great things in the past few weeks, so I've decided to keep a tab on the best things he says each week. It's a new section to the website where each week I will be posting some of the best things from mycoldman, whether it's on twitter or the official forums.
Yet again, stay tuned!
Update: Yep, yet another update from mycoldman already...
In the first JC2 Vlog, I'll be showing you the PS3 YouTube functionality.

We've just heard from Christofer Sunderberg, Founder and Creative Director of Avalanche Studios, that Just Cause 2 is in its final stages!
Don't believe me? Here's what he wrote:
Just Cause 2 is in its very final stages and there will be some new interesting announcements about the game very soon, which we are all looking forward to.
Founder & Creative Director
So not only is the game in its very
final stages, but there are some big announcements coming very soon.
Avalanche aren't the only ones with big news on the way, because I should hopefully have some very exciting news on the way too.
On a side note, I will be updating the website very soon to host some yet to be released info, and also integrate the forums with the rest of the site (there are still a few areas that you may have noticed need sorting out). I'll also be integrating an RSS feed very shortly, so you can stay as up to date as possible!
So make sure if you haven't joined the community here, that you do so today! So what are you waiting for? Oh yeah, some exciting news! Come on, Join today

I wasn't particularly happy with the site as it was, and after changing the look of the site for a Christmas special, I decided to rethink the design a bit.
Though not much has changed, I think the site looks a lot better than it did before, and I have also updated the Game Information
Not only that but as the game's launch is just around the corner (okay, 3 months away), I thought I would update the forums
to reflect this. It's all paid for, and yours to use for free!
I know there are a lot of Just Cause fans out there, and you're all welcome!

I've just put together a very simple Characters page within the Game Info section.
With your help, we can put together a more in-depth page on what we know so far about each character.
If you would like to help out, join the forums and write the information in this topic
