Mmm, new website smell! We’ve been working hard behind the scenes and are finally ready to show off the slick new design we’re very proud of.
Everything should pretty much be where you left it, with a few exceptions. Our beloved file library has gone off to the giant website in the sky. Game patches are released via torrents and services like Steam these days, while trailers and videos have found new high-def homes on YouTube. It didn’t make sense for us to duplicate that content – or to spend time maintaining that part of the site when we could be creating new stuff for you instead. We’re sad to see the library go, but there’s no stopping progress.
Other than that, we’ve just changed how things look, not how they work. If you find any issues, please let us know. Obviously, all the episodes are online for your viewing pleasure, we’re increasing our focus on reviews and features, and we’d like to take a moment to introduce our staff.
One thing that is new on this site is tucked away in the sidebar. We’ve been running Player Attack for five years now, and it’s mostly been a labour of love for that time. The funds to keep the site running come out of our pockets, and that means sometimes we just don’t have the resources to do the cool stuff we want to do for the site.
That’s where you come in. We’ve started a Patreon, which gives you an opportunity to help contribute to the success of the website. If you think we’re worth a few bucks, please consider chipping in a little each month – it all adds up and will help make Player Attack a better place! Goals at this stage include helping out with hosting fees and removing ads from the site – if there’s something you’d be happy to pay for (more videos? kittens and puppies? behind-the-scenes glimpses?), drop us a line!
In the meantime, sit back, relax, and enjoy the new-look Player Attack. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
