COMMUNITYoutof10: Happy Birthday, Barnabas!
Can you believe it? One whole year ago, on April 15th, AWESOMEoutof10 slithered its way onto the Internet, completely changing the way the world views video game journalism and reviews! I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have been taken along for the ride and it’s been an amazing journey so far — but we’re far from done, folks. With age comes experience and wisdom, so while there may have been a few bumps in the road, all of us are ready for the next step! We’ve got a lot of great things coming down the pipeline, so I hope you all stay with us and join our happy little community.
No, we don’t spontaneously turn into claymation replicas of ourselves and explore the meaning of Christmas, or engage in site-wide paintball competitions (though, really, we should), but we’re a family here and that’s all thanks to you guys!
One of the ways we’ll be expanding in the coming months is through the realm of video content and we’d really appreciate your feedback on this. Granted, we’re still a small group of dedicated, hardworking people — and Steven — but we’ll do our best to make what you want a reality. Video reviews? Weekly shows broadcast over our Twitch.tv Stream? How-To Guides on Beard Growing and Curating hosted by Fraser? While I can’t guarantee all of your suggestions will be made reality, we’d love to know what you think.
Of course, with PAX East behind us and E3/PAX Prime looming on the horizon, another thing we’ll be considering is how to better serve you during these weeks of information overload. Perhaps a round-table discussion (be it video or a simple transcripted conversation) between staff members? I’ll also be on-hand at PAX Prime to bring you all more previews and general thoughts, as well as [hopefully] scoring interviews and taking random photos throughout the weekend.
That’s all in the future, though. Right now, let’s take a moment to toast our beloved blue octopus! Our first year has been great and from all of us at AWESOMEoutof10, we wish you sincere thanks. Now where the hell are the damn presents?! We’ve got cake to eat, booze to drink and piñatas to smash, so let’s get on with it shall we? Chime in below with your well wishes, thoughts, concerns, X-Rated fan fiction and anything else you might want to share with us!
