GameFront is Finally Launched and Live!

GameFront launched yesterday with all the old articles, files, games, and everything else fully restored for your viewing pleasure by the original team. The site is built from the ground up and everything that you've come to expect from the place is there, and even the forums there have been revamped so that users can chat about news and content by the staff.

The site is beefier and better than it was before. As a note, they are no longer affiliated with Defy and are now more independent. They are good people (Brent) and you should head on over to see what they're up to since they worked super hard on it.

You can visit it here.

Hope to see you around there!

Hey all,

Some of you may remember me, I have taken over the role of community manager at GameFront!

Here to answer any questions. I used to work on the mod team here with n0e (Jeff) who is the product manager at GameFront.

We know our site went much the same way as this one has gone under Defy ownership, so we are here as a lifeboat of sorts. I know we were two very different sites but we went through very similar sagas.

Hope to see some familiar faces say hi!

A site suggestion: Implement a night theme
Light text on a dark background

Eye will be grateful

It's a nice snappy layout.
Glad to see good sites can land on their feet.

I know what this thread is really about. OP wants us to migrate over to GameFront. Well, you know what...

Fine. Maybe.

In all seriousness though, it's really great to see this site take off again for multiple reasons. I used to use it to download UT99/UT2004 community content so much and also their Jedi Outcast/Academy content. I even uploaded some missing UT mods to it. I wonder if they're still there.

I may just migrate to it over Rock, Paper, Shotgun if I like the forum.

Noted, we do have a dark theme in the works, but we just wanted to get the site solid first and then we could work on little bells and whistles.

Lol, well can't deny that, but only because we (me, n0e etc) sympathize cause you're going through what we went through, our site was left semi-abandoned by Defy for many years too.

But yes, we do have all the UT99 / UT2004 content back!

Cool!

Actually, a little warning. You guys are in the same business as ModDB and Nexus Mods. It may be really difficult to carve out a space of your own between them. I do know though that you are putting a new emphasis on articles and video content like the Escapist of old. That's really cool as well. Another thing to be mindful of though is that it may very well take a long time before you guys really start picking up steam. I know it took a while for the Escapist to finally get a firm foothold in the gaming content area.

Nah, just wanted to do the guys a solid. They're good people and any gaming site coming back from the ashes is not something to sneeze at, and should be celebrated.

Yep. So much better that the Escapist has been almost completely abandoned and we're all now waiting for it to 404.

Clearly ignoring the Deepfreeze links, I see. Pity.

You know, if The Escapist had gone full Pro-GG, I don't think we'd be in this mess. But no, Defy had to be a bunch of fence sitters and run away everyone on both sides. Now look where we are.

If only Defy had some guts when it mattered. Ah well, at least there's still One Angry Gamer...

No offense, but if I'm going to be migrating to another forum site, I want it to be somewhere where the people here WON'T follow me there.

So, thanks but no thanks.

EDIT: Aaand this thread is already about Gamergate, complete with Deepfreeze links. Yikes.
