Changes on the horizon

May 22, 2009

First and foremost I want to apologize to all of you loyal Snackbar Games readers for the lack of updates recently. As you may or may not know, all of us here at SBG have regular day jobs that pay the bills. Yes, I know you are surprised that our wonderful site is not in fact supporting all of us with full time jobs.

I think it’s finally gotten to the point where the amount of work necessary to keep this site updated with news is larger than the available time we have as a collective group. That said, we are mixing things up. Here is what you can expect to see in the coming weeks from us.


  • A new hompeage – We are working on cleaning up the homepage to make it easier to see new content and more functional for you.
  • Shifted focus in content – We aren’t going to keep up with the rat race that is posting hot off the press game news anymore. Instead, we will probably syndicate some of our favorite news sources and focus on reviews and other original content. We’ll let them do what they do best and we’ll focus on what we do best.
  • More author posts – I’m going to encourage our writers to post more about what they are playing and what their thoughts on games are long before the reviews go up. Sometimes our reviews go up long after games are out to ensure we have had time to play them thoroughly, but I think it would be helpful to give you insight into what our writers think about a game as early as possible.
If there are other features or changes you’d like to see around here, now would be a good time to throw those out. Thanks for visiting Snackbar Games. We know that without a loyal readerbase, we’d be wasting our time.
