This is the end!

If you’ve been following the site for awhile, this shouldn’t come as a major surprise. The number of posts we publish each day has been significantly trimmed down. Our timing with news hasn’t been as quick.

And there’s a reason for that. This week, I made the decision to not continue the site any longer. I’m physically exhausted and stressed. It’s become an incredible grind. I don’t want to say this is the end forever, but for now, that’s where things stand.

It’s been a wonderful ride. Unfortunately, I just can’t give Gaming Everything the time and attention it deserves. With Nintendo Everything, I’m already involved with a huge amount: 30-40 posts per day, Developer Musings, Discussing Everything, Just a Chat, interviews, the occasional video, technical upkeep… you get the idea.

Right now I don’t feel like I can give it my all for Gaming Everything. My only regret is that I couldn’t evolve the site much like I did with NE. It’s just impossible for me to split myself in two while keeping both sites as updated as they need to be.

So that’s it! I’m truly sorry if this news disappoints anyone. I’m especially thankful to those who have been keeping up with our updates for awhile. The site stayed online for over four years, so I can assure you that I tried my best!

Anyway, you don’t need to listen to my drivel any longer. Keep playing those games!
