Surprise, it's a new Web site that I've cooked up along with Gameshark EIC Bill Abner and some of our esteemed colleagues, Brandon Cackowski-Schnell, Todd Brakke, and Danielle Riendeau.
It was officially announced tonight on Jumping the Shark (which I missed the recording of so I could go help a friend of mine out with a project for his board game design class at SCAD), and we're now live and bursting with content. Our goal is to make Nohighscores.com a no-nonsense, more mature gaming site so don't expect cosplay pictures, Legend of Zelda parody art, and all that crap like you might find elsewhere. We're mostly older and wiser, but Bill nixed my suggestion of calling the site Oldgamegeek.com right out of the gate.
We will be covering board games as well. Bill has already posted his Top Ten Board Games list, and he takes a jab at me for dissuading him from Imperial- even though almost every game on the list is one I either recommended to him or he asked me about. Right now, the only board games material other than that is the Awful Green Things announcement which you've read here first. In the future, I'm likely going to be documenting some of the exploits of both Swamp Castle and the Hellfire Club there in more detail.
Of course, there will be tons of video game material and I plan on doing more reviews there beyond what I'm already doing for Gameshark. I've just posted my review of Dead Space 2 since Bill did our write-up back at home base.
This is an independent site, we're not affiliated with Gameshark at all- we just all happen to work there. My regular muckracking will continue to happen weekly at Cracked LCD as well as here as usual. Sorry.
I think it's going to be fun. Stop by and register, leave some comments. Nohighscores.com, obviously.
