Our goal is to aggregate the content around gaming such as blogs, photos, files, videos or news and organize them according to games, platforms, events as well as linking to the user. The site is designed to enhance the enjoyment of a user’s online gaming experience; whether they are in their 50’s and have a love of Wii Tennis, or they are a 16 year old Warcraft warrior!
