A Candle in the Window
We indicated earlier that we were by no means alone when leaving our former home in search of new and better opportunities, and we promised to clarify our status just as soon as everything was in order.Â Now the short wait is over, and today we’re happy to announce that Colony of Gamers will be the new home for In-Game Chat, and we its official gaming podcast. Â
Colony of Gamers (CoG) is a new site that emphasizes an involved and evolving community atmosphere in the belief that it will help create meaningful content and guidance for the site as a whole.Â Its staff members include former editors, contributors and prominent community members of Evil Avatar, and it’s the gift of their time and attention that has made this development possible.
Colony of Gamers is also a nascent portal for many sister sites with whom it shares a pedigree.Â Co-Optimus, Play It Review It, Immortal Machines, Johnny Gigawatt and the Tiger Men From Mars, and our own In-Game Chat make up the current extended family.Â We are all proud to be associates of what is sure to be a success, for each of us individually, and for the communities we serve.
While we will continue to deliver our own perspective on the medium and the industry, we nonetheless invite all of our listeners, old and new, to visit and be welcomed into Colony of Gamers, and we thank you once again for making us a success by lending us your ear.
We’ve been here before, and it’s time come round at last for the second cast of Evil Avatar Radio to retake its one true name. Â We owe a great deal to the men and women of Evil Avatar, and we’ve come further for the association than we could have hoped to on our own. Â But it turns out that to move forward we need to look back. Â Community exists beyond name or URL – community is people, and we can assure you that the podcast is intact, in good company, and in high spirits.
Stay tuned. Â Good things are close at hand.
Your New Webmaster
Hey everyone! I hope you like the new site, and I apologize for any bumps you find in our transition. I’m working to smooth everything out and make the process fairly easy. That being said, I know the old site just didn’t quite get the love and attention it deserved. It was like that really awesome PS2 RPG you keep saying your going to put in one day, but you know, stuff keeps coming out on the 360/PC/PS3. You really want to play that older RPG, but it just never happens.
Well, I’m dusting off the memory cards, so to speak. I’ll try to keep things interesting and functional around here. Don’t look to me for much content, but if you have an actual site suggestion, please, let me know! And if you catch a little site bug or whatnot, then I’d love to get word about it. Sure, I may already know about it; but maybe that one is something I haven’t seen yet, and I’d love the help.
So, this is your new webmaster, signing off. Looking forward to seeing you around In Game Chat in the future!
