Hello and welcome to NeoGamr, the brand new website devoted to covering all aspects of the game industry. I'm John Callaham and it's my pleasure to work with the founder of Neowin, Steven Parker, on the launch of this new sister site. I have worked as a game journalist for the past 12 years for such sites as FiringSquad and AOL's Big Download and will continue that work here on NeoGamr.
Our objective is not just to bring you the gaming news of the day but to also give you original reviews, previews, interviews and other features about the PC, console and mobile game industry. We also will be holding some game giveaways and breaking original news stories that you will see here first. We will also be attending E3 2012, which is coming up in just two short months.
A number of Neowin writers will also be contributing to NeoGamr. That includes the longtime member and moderator of the Gamers Hangout forums on Neowin, "Dirty" Larry Cooney, who has joined our news team and will be writing original content for the site. He will still be participating in our weekly podcast which will be shown here on NeoGamr. He encourages all current members of the Gamers Hangout to check out NeoGamr, and welcomes all new members that will join us in the coming months and years.
I want to thank Steven for the opportunity to help launch NeoGamr as well as Tim Kimberl for his work designing the site and Dave Legg for his hard work on programming the site for both the front and back end. NeoGamr would not exist without their efforts.
We hope all of you will enjoy the work we plan to do for NeoGamr. It promises to be a lot of fun and we hope all of you enjoy the ride.
