We’ve recently changed our format to features only, meaning we’re not covering all the news just the stuff that’s big and we’re spending more time working on original content. We’re attending TGS as press (Buri and I) again this year and we’ll be doing a lot of hands on features, podcasts and video stuff in a few weeks.
Seeing as the comments have basically died out on articles, we’re getting killed with registration spam, and not a single new (valid) member has joined the site in 2013, I’ve moved back to Disqus for comments. It drives traffic through their network, and will probably result in more commenting than we have now. Walled online communities are dead, and they aren’t coming back. We have to adjust to the times and make the site more accessible with minimal effort to make any progress on building a community. Some people didn’t care for this decision last time I made it, but frankly there’s not enough members here that are active regularly for me to care that much. I’ve put an enormous amount of time into building this site, and I’m just going to continue experimenting with different formats and features until something works out well, rather than just letting it rot until I lose interest.
That’s pretty much it.
Pretty stoked for this movie, next summer seems a long way away. I really hope it can live up to the hype and expectations, but I have a lot of faith in Nolan.]]>
Let the games begin!]]>
What’s with all the green]]>
June 11th - June 13th is E3. Random and I wanted to talk a little bit about what we hope to, and what we expect to see at the event and talk about it on Robots & Spaceships for the next few weeks. We ‘d love to hear from the community and hear your opinions and hopefully share them on the podcast.
Any thoughts or predictions, hopes and dreams for E3 this year? Throw it down!]]>
Can’t say I’m surprised.]]>
See you in 13 years.
EDIT: Please note that I am in a timezone where this post is correct.]]>
Let’s be honest here. Weeooo isn’t doing that great, right now. Neither did SNES, 3DS, PS2, or PS3.
At worst, this is the Nintendo Dreamcast. As I understand it, Dreamcast does still has pretty cultish following.
The main focus for this version of the site was to make it completely responsive to browser size, be it desktop or mobile. The entire site is now capable of shrinking down to as small as your iphone screen without losing any content or functionality. I think you’ll find it to be a much better experience, particularly on mobile and tablet. You’ll notice this mostly on the news/game pages for now, but I’ll be converting more areas over. It’s a lot easier for me to do it with the site live.
So, there ya go.]]>
