A Quick Update from Gaming Reinvented

As you may have noticed, updates have been pretty slow here on Gaming Reinvented.

But don’t panic, there is a reason for this.

Namely, I’m redesigning the entire website. Why? Well to be honest, there are two reasons.

Firstly, the existing site doesn’t really work for its purpose at the moment. It’s meant to be a service, yet currently feels more like a traditional blog. And that’s fine if you’re running a blog.

But I’m not running one. I’m running a service where people are meant to post their own content. It’s basically a social media type site for writers, in the guise of a news site.

And the current design means people don’t understand this. They don’t realise they can post their own articles or content, they keep asking me to post them as if guest blogs were still relevant and gaming sites require professional staff.

So that’s one reason I’m redesigning the site. To encourage people to use it in the way it’s meant to be used, not as yet another blog they have to send messages to about guest posts and staff writer positions.

Reason number 2 on the other hand… well that’s a bit philosophical. Basically, as I realised a few months or so ago, traditional content sites don’t really work anymore. Why is this? Because society has moved on. Instead of using traditional desktop computers, people use smartphones to access the internet through most of their day.

However, most existing sites don’t get this, and as a result, they’re stuck in the desktop era.

And that’s a huge issue. Put simply, the workflow required for old school news sites and platforms doesn’t work in this new world.

Think about it. How convenient is it to post an article on mobile?
On like, any CMS you can think of?

Not very. This means sites like Medium (and traditional CMS systems like WordPress and Drupal) lose out whenever audiences on their phones.

Yet it’s not just limited to them either. No, the same goes for news reporting too. Want to cover a Nintendo Direct? Yeah, good luck doing that on an iPad, since taking and uploading screenshots is hell and videos are even worse. Add glacial upload speeds, fiddly buttons in website interfaces and awkward plugins telling you how hard to read your work is, and things just become a complete nightmare.

But we want to fix this. We want a world where reporting the news is super simple, lightning fast and convenient for everyone. One where authors can write a beautiful story on the bus back from work without worrying that their 3G connection will fail while they’re doing so. Where users can read articles even while offline. Where modern, futuristic looking articles can be written and posted without the backing of a high-tech development team and thousands of dollars in media production skills.

Hence that’s why we’re redesigning Gaming Reinvented right now. Because in today’s smartphone era, the competition just isn’t good enough.

Full stop.

Merry Christmas from Gaming Reinvented!

It’s Christmas time! The turkey’s in the oven, the presents are under the tree (if you’re not in the UK at the moment) and everything’s looking good for the holiday season. New games, new consoles, all that stuff is probably here and present for many of you about now.

But we won’t be posting about any of it. Why? Because like everyone else on the planet, we enjoy our Christmas break and have decided to take the next few days off. So today and tomorrow, there will be no news posts from Gaming Reinvented, nor any updates on social media or over on Wario Forums.

It’s just in the spirit of the season you know? Christmas is a time you spend with your friends and family, not posting on social media or arguing about video game ‘controversies’ with people on internet forums.

So check out the Gaming Latest forums or various subreddits if you desperately need news, and try and spend your time with friends and family. Or heck, actually playing the games you likely got for Christmas rather than talking about them.

Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
