Scullion posted for a wee while on the forum shortly after Nintendo Gamer's demise on CVG. He'd done a lot for us as he kept the forum running for as long as possible over on CVG before we formed GNamer. Good lad indeed - check out tiredoldhack.com if you're looking for more from him.

Hello new people.

Question, what the strawberry float is up with your logo? I don’t understand the troll part.

I might have read the original post incorrectly but have we been joined by the people who used to run the N64 magazine? :shock:

My 13 year old self considers them celebrities.

Ha, I wish we could say that. We consider them celebrities too. Unfortunately we're just the fan forum they originally set up. Chris Scullion has an account he occasionally remembers to post in, Matthew Castle has a defunct one, and I got them both to leave comments on our 2013 Best Game On Wii thread... but no, we're mostly just the fans, sorry.

This, however, is an N64 reference. It's our artist's rendition of a grackler.

I joined the Gamesradar forum after seeing it advertised in NGC. As far as I'm concerned we're their fan forum. :x

Sorry Smurphy, NGC -> NGamer -> NGamer Official Forum -> NGamer Forum continuing as part of CVG -> CVG dies, GNamer splits off. Direct lineage. :P

What happened to GamesRadar anyway? I thought they swallowed CVG!

If you look hard enough/far enough back I think he had an account here once too. I'm sure a few of the I'm the Best leaderboard posted on GR one time or another.

GamesRadar are still going. Future have made it their main online site from what I remember.

If I'm remembering rightly there was a UK and US version of the GR site and each with their own forum. The US one was what Future considered the main forum as we were a holdover from an earlier version of the site. They kept the ours going because we had a far more active community.

Eventually though they decided to shutter the UK forum as they wanted us to all take part under their one-login pish which would allow us to comment on the articles and other stuff.
That and I don't think they liked that none of us really liked or visited the mainsite after all the changes it had gone through and actively talked gooseberry fool about it. That and we had plugins to block all the ads that they put up on it. I don't think Driv3rgate helped us as we were a focal point for that and implicated some Future magazines of less than ethical behaviour. Eventually I think they decided we were more grief than we were worth and decided to close us in the hope we'd migrate to the US forum.

To this day I don't know anyone who went to it when we closed. GRcade opened pretty quickly from what I remember.

If I've misremembered any of that I'm sure someone will correct me.

Check out some of our stuff!

Cheers for that Mr. Devlin, I appreciate the history lesson. I only knew about the US incarnation, it seems.

To be fair it would seem that it deserves people talking gooseberry fool about it.

It used to be good, but it really became apparent that it was going downhill and pandering to every fad that games websites at the time were implementing.

Just checked it just now and the first thing I saw was a notice asking me to disable adblock. :lol:
