Yes we have finally gotten to our 5th annivesary. VGG was started as the third part of the Geekdo websites on the 1st of august 2010. Since we are 2015 and my calculations aren't wrong that brings us to our 5th birthday!

It has been a bumpy road since there is a lot of other great videogaming websites out there and we could use some tweaks at our database and frontpage as well. But we have steadily been growing over the years and I must say that I'm happy to see that the community is really triving these days.

Come join us in our celebrations:

VideoGameGeek is 5 years old!

VGG July 2015 report

I'm posting this a bit earlier this month as I'm home and have some time to put this one together.

Well it's July over here in the western hemisphere that means summer and as we are used to a calmer month on the internet. Well you can't blame people as it's hopefully to nice a weather to spend to much time on the computer. But we still had a bunch of stuff going on so far.

We started of the month by celebrating 'Videogameday', a unofficial holiday dedicated to videogaming. We had a huge microbadge giveaway and it was a huge effect, this microbadge mb now is in the collection of 641 users! Note: their is a deluxe version of the mb available as well

For the 12 events we had everything centered around 'Rating and Commenting' on videogames. As you know a core attribute on VGG are the ratings. But with all our frantic gaming we would forget to rate the games and provided them with comments. So we had a week dedicated to them: VGG Event: Rating Week 10.07 - 17.07. And we can't complain because even with summer we got 40 users participating in this event. A huge rise in numbers compared to the last two months. No side event though this month.

The monthly videogame review is having a very slow month though. Only 3 reviews are now posted in the geeklist: Video Game Geek Review Contest - July 2015. Theme this month is: PERIPHERAL PLAY but as always that is totally optional. So if you hurry, you still have 3 days to join! So get writing!

Well more then half a year has been gone, wondering about this years 'Videogame Challenge'? Well this is how far we are at the moment:

mb: 101 particpants
mb: 12 users have beaten at least 10 games and got at least 100 hours of play out of that.
mb: 9 users have beaten at least 10 games and got at least 150 hours of play out of that.
mb: 7 users have beaten at least 10 games and got at least 200 hours of play out of that.
mb: 4 users have beaten at least 10 games and finished their hardcore list while at it!

Because game forums aren't always that visible for everyone and therefore threads and questions get easily lost we started up a new thread. When you spot a question on the forums that seems to be unloved post it in this thread: Users needing help. And of course don't forget to subscribe as well! You might be able to help out other users!

And important news as well! Next weekend VGG is celebrating it's 5th birthday! That is right, we started on the 1st of august 2010. Time flies! To celeberate this we are asking users to help us out with some nice events to have fun. Come and look and join us! We want to make a lot of noise and are counting on you! VGG's Birthday Event (August 2015).

And when is your birthday? Joined it with all other users in our VGG Birthday Geeklist! VGG Birthday List.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away

The video gaming world is in mourning as we learned that Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo, has passed away. He came over from HAL Laboratory and became the fourth president of Nintendo and CEO in 2000.

He helped push the cart to make games available for everyone. In his mind games were becoming to specialized and he thought everyone should be able to play their games. He was a main figure behind the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii.

In 2014 Nintendo stated that Satoru Iwata was ill and needed treatment and now the sad news of his death came. He died of Cancer at age 55.
Satoru Iwata has been an important member of the gaming industry and will be mourned.

A memorial thread has been set up here: Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has passed away

As a last note, I will end with a famous quote made by him:

"On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer."

From his keynote speech at GDC 2005

It's the 8th of july and today we are celebrating Video Game Day!

I didn't really know anything about it so I thought I would dedicated a small blog on it. As I came the VGG event manager I was wondering if there wasn't a special celebration day for videogames so I started to search the net. With special days for about anything I guess there had to be one for videogames as well. And you know what? There isn't just one, there are two of these days!

First off all the one we are celebrating today: Video Game Day. It's a celebration for all the great videogames that we can enjoy. It expands to all titles and games we have been playing for years and years.

There also is a second day: National Video Game Day. This one is celebrated a bit later in the year, on the 12th of september, each year.

I did wonder why on earth there are two days so I did some research about it but unfortunatly it seems the internet has no answer to this. Nobody has been able to trace the creator or the reason we have two days. But it seems the National Video Game Day seems to be an US based event. So with this awesome internation community it seems a better idea to celebrate this one as a community and just party crash the Americans second date later this year!

But before we are there let's enjoy this date and have a great Video Game Day! Keep an eye on the geek because we are going to have a celebrational microbadge give away.

So we had two posts of these over on my 'private' blog but then I decided to put them on the VGG News Blog since after it's after all about VGG.

So what was new last month? What did you miss or did you join?

The 12 events: we featured a week long salute to AAA games.
VGG Event: AAA Games Week 19.06 - 26.06

We got 25 participants which is again a bit lower then when we first started, maybe the genre or concept is going a bit out of style but on the other hand, summer is here so that might be it as well.

We also got another side event, for people who didn't get all the other events: D-Day (12 events side event). With june we featured D-Day as the beginning of operation Overlord who freed us all these years ago. We got two participants.

Video Game Geek Review Contest - June 2015 is our monthly review contest and this month the optional theme was 'The 90's'. Wondering who will win, well read the reviews and vote! We have 10 entries this month.

And we announced it last month, N/A was coming and indeed in June four browers games were let loose on the VGG crowd: Dojo of Death, Pel, Love and 10 Bullets.

Overall winner is:

Ryan Gatti
United States
Portland
