It’s an emotional day.
After 14 years of drama, blood, sweat, tears, and a LOT of Spam, GameFront / FileFront’s long and storied journey finally comes to an end.
I’ve been running the forums, and managing network sites, at FileFront for most of my adult life. It’s a bit part of mine and many other peoples lives, and I can’t stand by and just allow GameFront to die.
What I can’t do is buy it; I just don’t have the money, a buyout is not feasible.
What I CAN do is build a new home for the members of GameFront to go to; FilesNation. FilesNation will be a website dedicated not to hosting gaming mods, at least not initially, but to reviewing them, spotlighting them, and the world of modding, as well as touching on the gaming industry in general. It will also be a new home to the GameFront community in general. It’s also going to be the new home for my YouTube channel.
So, GameTrekker is no more. I’m sadly not going to have the time to make videos and write half-assed blogs for GameTrekker and FilesNation at the same time, so I’m going to put all my eggs into the one basket and push full-forward with FilesNation.
I’ll still make videos, mostly of the same content, but also with more videos and more focus of reviewing and discussing game mods. The modding community is going to be the niche here, this is going to be the magazine for gaming MODS, not gaming.
This website will redirect to the new FilesNation site when it’s ready, and my channel will remain in the same place but be rebranded. If you want to stay up to date on the latest on FilesNation, go to http://www.filesnation.com/ and sign up for the mailing list.
