Busy Gamer News is written by busy gamers, and we've gotten too busy to continue for the short-term. Our consulting business is consuming all of our time as we work to take our client to a successful launch. It's something in the gaming space that you might have heard of or may even be participating in, but we're not at liberty to share details.
So, after 8 years of nearly constant coverage, we're taking a couple of weeks off. First for work projects, and then for us. Like an overused gaming portable that hasn't been plugged in for some time, we need to recharge our batteries.
Expect us back around the end of November, and you can watch our tweets (Gamewatcher and GrrlGotGame) for news in the meantime. We'll post what we can when we're not too exhausted! If we don't respond right away, don't take it personally - we're working, sleeping or, heck, we might even play a game or two before resuming our Busy Gamer reviews and reporting duties.
If you find value in what we do, here are a few things you might consider while we're dark:
- Post a comment. Any show of support or even interaction on this site helps keep us going. Say what you think about what we're doing, add your thoughts to a review or article, or just introduce yourself! We'll watch for comments and approve them as quickly as we can. If you miss a favorite feature (like how we try to track and make sense of all of the various console DLC), say so. Your encouragement keeps us going.
- Listen to our podcasts. We work hard on the Busy Gamer Podcast, and many segments in our 'Best of' feed are timeless and entertaining. Give them a try and share them with friends who might be interested.
- Donate. We've only received a handful of contributions, and none in the past several months. We've never been profitable, and that's not why we do what we do. But it means a lot when our community steps up even a little. It shows you place value on all of the hard work that we do. There's a link right there on our home page - give it a click and show your love for a niche gaming community that's growing and we hope will someday have a voice alongside the core gamers, who dominate our hobby and often attempt to drown out or downplay our interest in it.
Most of all, continue to have fun gaming! Don't be discouraged from your passion and let us know what you're enjoying...
