Someone please make me feel better about the new release list

I'm pretty bummed at the moment about the new release list being removed by apple. I have no idea how you can get eyes on a game now. It was hard enough WITH the list in place. Now....UGH

Okay, it might make you feel better that others share your pain and frustration and are talking about doing something about it. Check out this thread:

Yea I did see this. I was just hoping someone had some good news or new info that wasn't stated yet.

I'm confused though. There actually is a list called "new" although its only like one page long. Isn't this the list of new apps? Why is it only a few apps long even if you hit see more? I know there is also a list called "new and noteworthy" but that's a separate and different list than "new". So what I'm asking is. Is the new release list really removed from the App Store or is it just renamed to "new"

That New list has about 100 items, at least in the role-playing subcategory. That's quite a bit farther than I ever bothered to check on the original (iOS 5) "New" list. I am still not sure what all the hubbub is all about...

I think people just don't understand how the new system works just yet. So I am guessing that when an app is released it goes on this list for a day or two and then is gone. Essentially the same thing that happened before. Am I right? Each subcategory has its own "new" list as well. So maybe there really is nothing to worry about upon further examination. Right?
