I gotta get this off my chest.

Aug 31 2014 02:41 PM | Milenko in Articles

Hey everybody. I just want to rant for a bit. All day I've been hearing/reading about the "gaming press" painting gamers in bad light. I want to explain that we're a small site with a chatroom, two podcasts (one independently contributed) and a forum where we talk about gaming related stuff. I'm a gamer, I love video games. If you write for the 'gaming press' and feel I shouldn't brand myself as a gamer because "gamers are scum" or "uptight nerds" you can sincerely go fuck yourself with a rake. We're gamers, we game. If you don't like it.. Feel free to find a new hobby to try and suck the passion from for personal gain.

I'm going to sit here and play my games as a gamer.

Roundtable Episode 2!

Aug 14 2014 11:23 PM | Milenko in Podcasts

This weeks episode is brought to you by the letter "Almost got molested by a neckbeard at McDonalds" and the number "Excite-a-Bike"

No, seriously though we had fun this week. Little bit better on the whole "not laughing at Tele" thing, we weren't as 'awkward' this time around (We werent, aldude was fucking weird). Hoping to have more episodes for you guys soon! Maybe some actual game play to coincide with WTF we're talking about.

Let us know in the comments below what you'd like to talk about on the next show. Or, if you'd like to join us!

This website has an identity crisis.

Aug 14 2014 10:16 AM | Milenko in Articles

As many of our users and stalkers know, we started as a wiki and a simple phpBB forum. What many of you don't know is I'm the only one who runs the site aside from users who post articles and forum content. That being said, If I don't like the way something looks.. I have a need to change it.Yesterday I discussed with Whitdjinn about how I wanted to spin off this site and start another general gaming site while leaving this site as a link through to the various network affiliates. After some discussion with him and a few other members of our IRC channel the general consensus was that the site looked and felt more professional on this setup, which is definitely true. The problem I had was I wanted to please everyone and include all these weird ass little features that 1 or 2 people liked, but ultimately never used. So when I reverted back to our base forum and wiki structure I felt like it would garner more attention being simplistic as it is, unfortunately that back fired. Luckily in the two months since I reverted the site there hasn't been a lot going on, articles, forum posts and new users have been merged into this installation and I'm rebuilding the feature set based on thing I know people will use. Right now GCN is a basic article/forum system, throughout the week I'll be adding little perks that aren't BAM! In your face, but subtle.. like the embed tweet, steam card and YouTube embedding available throughout the site and forum. Audio can be embedded this evening, for those of you who run podcasts or make music. I hope these changes will be welcomed, and I promise I wont revert the software again :P
