We haven't forgotten you

Dear Readers, I want to apologize. It's been weeks since we've written anything, and you're probably in the dark as to why.

Well, the short version is we're all in pretty time-consuming situations of our own:

  • Doug just started graduate school,
  • Nick's working full-time and trying his hardest to get into the gaming industry,
  • and Aaron's on the cusp of moving to Portland to begin his job search anew

Those are the excuses we've got, anyway. And while they really do account for a significant part of the site's stagnation, there's more to it than that.

We've lost sight of our purpose in blogging here. We set out to do something different from every other gaming blog we knew and loved (or acknowledged and hated, occasionally) and instead we ended up resorting to the same routine -- churning out lengthy, comprehensive (and sometimes terribly boring) reviews of games and almost-daily news regurgitations that fell short of the high standards of informed opinion, polish and sharp analysis we'd hoped to deliver. Basically, we were overwhelmed by the workload and the mundane nature of the process, and we knew we needed to evolve the site or we'd all burn out.

So we've been taking a little time to do our own things, and I've been thinking about how to reboot the whole thing.

We're not there quite yet, but I hope that if you've stuck with us this far, you're not about to give up yet.

In the meantime, please subscribe to our RSS feed so you'll be informed the second we get our act together.

And one last thing: We really want to know what you think of the work we've done so far. Anything you love or hate, things you'd like to see more or less of, suggestions, anything -- please drop us a line. You can comment on this post, send us a direct message on Twitter, or email any of us -- our addresses are just our first name at siliconsasquatch dot com.

Thanks again! We hope to be back and doing what we love to do soon.
