  1. Quick TGN E3 2018 Wrap Up

    E3 was last week and I do believe the dust has finally settled. I decided, for my own sanity really, to try to take things a bit slower this year with getting news up from the event. This was especially evident by the casual pace in which I got a good chunk of the premieres and trailers up that were shown off during the major pre-E3 press conferences.

    In previous years, I would try to get news up almost as soon as something was announced during the conferences. This was not only taxing on me but it meant that a lot of news posts went up without much substance to them. By simply waiting, a few things happened:

  2. Phasing Out TGN News

    I'll mention here and now that the news posts that went up near daily will more than likely be coming to an end soon.

    I'd rather I shifted focus to more original content than copy and pasting things everyone already gets at a million other sites.

    I'll hopefully have more on this soon. The more nuanced post will probably go up in the Announcement section here along with a main page posting.

  3. Site Issues

    Hey everyone, this is just a quick update about some of the issues we've had recently with the site.

    Near the end of December our domain had expired. Tim and I had not realized this for longer than we care to admit. I just saw that the site up and died one day. He thought maybe something broke on the server we were on. Then he realized (after moving our site to an entirely different server location) that our domain had expired. Whoops.

    We, once again, had to contact MyIS to renew it. By "we" I mean that Tim did that. No, I do not know why MyIS still controls that. No, ...

  4. TGN April Fools or "Why Zips Sucks"

    So here's the deal. For the past couple of years now, I've had this grand idea to completely remake the site design to make it look near identical to Kotaku. I had started on the layout change for the main page a while back, but never got very far with it. Obviously, since it's different software being used at both places, a true 1:1 recreation would have not been possible.


    But it'd have been close. I'm talking about layout, colors, even a Kotaku-ified logo! I was thinking "Kotaku Gaming Network" or "To-taku" or something equally dumb. It was going to be "ha ha, ...

  5. Revised Review Score Graphics

    I've changed the review score graphics. You may have noticed this on the review for Superhot.

    I felt like the old visuals, seen here, were ok but they didn't make it clear to non-regulars that the system is an x out of 5 system. So, I went ahead and changed how they look. They're significantly smaller on the vertical scale and a bit easier to read.
