GamerCenterOnline is moving. Well, not really moving but transforming.
After seven plus years of moderate success, I’ve decided that its time for a complete overhaul of everything, from the name and even design of GamerCenterOnline.
When we first started back in 2008-2009, I was 16 years old kid with no real understanding of video game journalism. Since then, I’ve learned that, even though GamerCenterOnline has had some level of success, there’s really no need for another general video game website.
Starting around May to early June, basically the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2016, GamerCenterOnline will become CoverBased, a video game website dedicated to the cover-based video game market.
I have for years covered video games, even video games that I didn’t practically care for. However, with CoverBased, I’ll be covering apart of the market that I have a great passion for.
You can actually quote me on this: “Coverbased is a project that I’m really excited about and I’ve taught about a change for months.”
I’m generally looking forward to going into detail about games such as Gears of War 4, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Mass Effect: Andromeda.
We are going hardcore!
