Anyone here from NeoGaf?



  • @Bloodworth

    Thanks Bloodworth, I had an account here, but never used it much, guess it's going to change. I already see some familiar faces.

    However I do think that NeoGAF is gone for good. There is an archived version here and mods/members are already working on a substitute, however NeoGAF as we knew it is dead.



  • @Bloodworth thanks for the openness Blood. I've been with GT/EZA since high school. Was on the Patreon and Twitch sub from day 1. On GAF we celebrated when you guys pulled through. There are memebera of GAF working hard to bring a new site up as soon as tommorow. Hopefully the outlook is brighter. But for now I'm happy to truly embrace the EZA fam on their own forums. At least I can still look forward to E3 and Nintendo Directs and Sony Conferences with you guys.



  • @Japanmanx3 Can you share any details on who's spearheading this new site? Without strong moderation/account approvals I'm worried it'll fall apart real quick.



  • For people asking about gaming news we use this thread. If you don't like the forums style you can change it in your user settings in the pagination section.



  • This post is deleted!


  • @dmax3901 Some old mods, some help from open critic, and volunteers are in the mix right now. That's pretty much all I know. I'm in the Discord but it's been a busy day so that's all I can say. But they secured resources and have a framework. More info to come soon.



  • @Japanmanx3 Ok cool, sounds more legit than I envisioned. This shit still has me reeling, lol.



  • @dmax3901 I have a vacuum in my heart. I joined GAF in like 2013. The last major community I was involved in to that degree was the Nintendo Power forums. GT crumbled and thankfully EZA rose like a Pheonix from those ashes. Iwata died. So much has happened in my, nay, in our gaming history and whether people know it or not, GAF was there for the majority of it. I was there when the Xbox One was revealed. When CBOAT was a god amongst men. When Ntkrnl gave up the goods. When Banderas was the king of Gifs. When Mario 3D World made huge swaths of people eat crow. It can't really be stated enough. The industry had to acknowledge GAF. And many embraced us wholly. To say it's sad to see the way it's abruptly spiraled into oblivion is the minutest of understatements.



  • Welcome all! Hope to see you all in Twitch chat or Discord!



  • @Japanmanx3 And so suddenly! Just all happened out of nowhere. Was so weird to see the inmates take over the asylum in the few times I could access the site before it was completely shut down. People posting all kinds of stupid stuff.



  • @Erevador

    Same here, was always very active in the EZA thread and loved the coverage ever since the GT days. :)
    Gonna miss the specific games, fast news, and especially the off-topic live TV show reaction threads.

    Welcome everyone. I definitely hope that GAF isn't gone for good. (I was at least lurking there before the Neo) I don't expect these forums to be a real replacement in any sense, but hopefully you can find a place here to feel at home and have some civil discussions.

    Thanks for the kind welcome!

    Guess it's time to get a little more active since I've been lurking and just reading for a while since these forums went up as well lol :)



  • @sn00zer_neo When was Senran banned? It had it's own community thread that went on for years. Senran Kagura is a fun Musou game, even with all that fan service.



  • @sn00zer_neo Simple, if there's a topic you don't agree with, you don't interact with it. It's not hurting you for existing. That's how respect works.

    Big difference between a discussion and actually posting scenes from these games or intentionally being graphic/lewd/disrespectful, etc.

    Also to my understanding there was a thread on GAF for Senran, so it wasn't a taboo topic even there.



  • All the happenings today has been some what surreal.

    I've been a member there for must be going on 6 or 7 years, but I suppose nothing lasts forever.

    Anyway onwards and upwards, and all that rot.



  • @ChaosBahamut Thank you! Looking forward to it.

    Speaking of, is there some form of online communities in here for specific games? Just was getting into the GT Sport online gaf community and now thats gone would love somewhere to be able to add friends, compare times etc.

    I know it sounds stupid but i get the same feeling i did the day gametrailers shut. It was a part of my everyday life and has left a hole.

    Well there are threads for specific games, though nothing probably like ones on neogaf. Certainly feel free to start ones for games if you don't already see one.

    Glad to have you, and everyone else new, here with us all.

    L&R



  • @Inustar thabks yeah might have to make one. But yeah those neogaf threads were epic and really brang the whole fanbase of that game together.



  • ResetERA is what the new forum will be called!!



  • I had the same name there, but it’s my first time posting or looking at the EZA forums even though I’ve been a fan since the beginning. Looks like this’ll be my new place since I can’t find anything worthwhile on reddit to fill that void



  • It's going to be tricky to replace GAF as a news source. GAF specialized in rumours (usually accurate) from the deep corners of the internet, and niche topics like corporate hierarchies/financial reports. Not only do the mainstream gaming news aggregates tend not to cover this stuff, they also have an emphasis on clickbait.
