Pro-Gamer: The One Year Anniversary

One year ago on this day (actually, this celebration is roughly one day late, but do 24 mere hours really make that much of a difference?) was when I created this humble blog and created my first post.


Now, one year later there have been a staggering 84 posts in the hole, lots of replies, and mountains of spam, but sadly, no money has been made off of this. I really just write this blog because I enjoy it, and writing is one of my favorite hobbies, so it all works out even without some dough (though that would certainly help, hehe). I’ve also recently created a little-known, separate blog that showcases my music interests. Although the content on it is a bit scarse at this point, I plan on doing more with it in the future. It’s called PG Music Reviews – check it out.

Here are my most note-worthy posts, chosen on a month by month basis.

January 2006 - Square Enix Publishing Grandia III Could be Either a Good Thing or a Bad Thing

February 2006 - Shamefully Bad Game Boxart of the Moment

March 2006 - Does Apple Got Game? iThink Not!

April 2006
- The Legend of Zelda: Doodle Dungeons Will Be a Possible Revolution Launch Title

May 2006 - Can the Playstation 3 Sell on Brand Name Alone?

June 2006 - Bootleg DS Carts Hit the Market

July 2006 -This was a rather hollow month for Pro-Gamer, as I went on vacation and nothing was posted. There was tons of spam when I returned, however…. that’s always a sign that thing’s rarely change, and Ross would return next month, better than ever!

August 2006 -
Five Reasons Not to Upgrade to a Next-Gen Console

September 2006 - Final Fantasy VII: "Expanding"?

October 2006 - Sonic DS: A Canned Part of the Past or a Sign of the Future?

November 2006
- Wii Launch Madness

December 2006 - PSX: The Games You Missed

Damn a whole year. Nice job with that. Good recent posts too, like the PS1 games that you may have missed. With my PS3 beings backwards compatible I still try to find old games on the cheap. Good luck to you in the new year.
