A letter from the editor:
F@#% Yeah Gaming was and is a great example of what a few people can get together and do in a short amount of time with limited resources. I’m incredibly proud of this little project, and firmly believe that we have produced some fantastic original content and fascinating creative pieces.
So, it’s with a heavy heart that I announce that we’re essentially closing shop.
I created this site and suckered my friends into writing for it so that we could use it as a place to, simply, write about videogames. My goal was to create the sort of videogame blog that I would love to read, and I think we accomplished that. By mixing up your standard reviews and news items with creative essays, game quotes, and the occasional game-related video or Snuggie, I think we managed to bring something fresh and new to the table of videogame journalism.
For the most part, we were using a free image hosting service for our posts, which means that as time passes, most of our images will disappear from the site (many already have). All text content, however, will remain up indefinitely, as well as our comment system.
If you’d like to follow my own work, there are several places you can find it. I’m now writing a regular videogame column for Naked City Magazine, and I’m also contributing to Pixelated Sausage, as well as adjusting to the podcasting world as a co-host of the Distributed Failure gaming show, which is now featured on All Games Radio.
All of the other writers for FYGaming have been invited to contribute to Pixelated Sausage as guest writers, as well, so hopefully you can check out some of their work there in the future, too.
Again, thank you all for checking out our little videogame site. If you have any questions, comments, or want to get in contact with anyone involved here, you can send me an email at fyeahgaming [at] gmail [dot] com.
Peace, love, and videogames,
