Week in Review – January 23, 2017
Sorry about the delay on getting this Week in Review posted folks! Been busy finishing up a research paper for one of my classes.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT GAMEUMENTARY?
Last week was pretty good for the site. We released our biggest feature yet covering how the lore was built for Tyranny, along with a review for Rise and Shine. This week we’ve already released a new feature interview covering the upcoming World War MMO, Foxhole and in a few days, we’ll have another big interview to share with you that I found super interesting to read through as I edited it.
The developer we spoke to is super excited about his team’s project and the way the game came about is…something else, to say the least. You’ll see a teaser for our next Q&A feature probably tomorrow, if not on Wednesday.
Aside from that, we’re working on quite a few things behind the scenes and are currently finalizing plans for something I still can’t talk about for a while.
Other than that, I’m still trying to figure out the best way to get sustainable traffic to the site as that’s proven to be a challenge since we don’t regularly post news. We’ll be pumping some cash into social media advertising soon to try and publicize a bit, but as always, it’s immensely helpful for you to share our content on social media and by word of mouth.
We should reach about 10,000 visitors by the end of the month, which is pretty good for starting out with very little reach. I personally think it will take one or two big interviews that get picked up by mainstream press or NeoGAF for us to really start exploding. We’ll see.
PERSONAL GAMING UPDATE
I had very little time to game this week due fraternity recruitment week on my campus. Being the President of my chapter has proven to be rather stressful already, but I’m meeting a lot of great people and becoming more recognized on campus, so that’s pretty cool.
I’m still playing Rainbow Six Siege, and Ubisoft just announced the next content update today so I doubt that will change anytime soon. For the sake of not being redundant, just assume I’ve been playing a lot of Siege from here on out.
I did, however, order Resident Evil VII today following the very positive reviews. Someone said it’s the best horror game since Alien: Isolation. We shall see about that.
