It feels like a filler post, but it's really not...

Normally around this time of the month I'd be plugging the latest issue of GameCola, the Internet's only videogame humor website for which I am a staff writer. Notice I didn't put a comma after the word "website"; lo, how such a small mark of punctuation can drastically alter the meaning of an entire sentence!


Truth is, GameCola celebrated their final issue last month, and now we're in waiting mode for the new version of the site to go live. That's "live," as in Saturday Night Live, not, You Only Live Twice; lo, how such a small word can drastically alter the meaning of an entire sentence!


The site, however, is not dead yet. No no no. We're still posting videogame videos on the GameCola YouTube channel, writing posts on the GameCola Blog, giving updates on the GameCola Facebook page, and even posting to the GameCola Forums on occasion.

Once the revamped site is active, expect new reviews and columns on a weekly basis rather than a monthly basis, not to mention a spiffier look and feel to the site. I still plan to provide regular GameCola updates, but don't you worry your pretty little head about that right now.

If you're looking to get caught up on all my contributions to GameCola, allow me to direct you to my reviews archive (featuring reviews of Pong, No One Lives Forever, and loads of Mega Man games), my Flash Flood archive (a column reviewing Flash animations and videos), and The GameCola Podcast archive, where you can hear me talking (yes, my actual voice) about videogame-related matters.

And I suggest you look into at least one of these archives if you haven't yet reveled in all of my GameCola work; it is Nathaniel Hoover Day, after all.

You think I'm joking.

August 4, 2005 was proclaimed as Nathaniel Hoover Day by the First Selectwoman of the Town of Darien, Connecticut. I have a very official proclamation sitting in front of me as I write this. It has an embossed gold stamp and everything.


I didn't save the town from a Dalek invasion or anything like that; the dedication came about for reasons relating to academics and community involvement. Still, it simultaneously amused me and surprised the heck out of me when I heard the announcement, and it's quite a rare honor to have.

That being said, go catch up on my GameCola stuff. ;D

...Ugh, did I just use an emoticon in my blog post?
