Not Dead Yet ... Follow Me On Twitter
Yes everyone who still follows this site I am still alive. Been busy with work/life/stuff to the point that I just didn't have time to update the site and my podcast on a regular basis. I would love to tell everyone that I can start up the site full force once again, but that probably isn't realistic.
However I believe that Twitter might be my savior for now. Writing 140 characters or less on a regular basis should not be a problem. It might not be perfect, but it's going to be much easier than having to deal with always finding "that perfect picture to insert with the blog post" or spending hours upon hours editing the latest podcast. Writing lots of small snippets on a regular basis should be just about perfect for me right about now.
So check out my Twitter page at http://twitter.com/GamingSteve. Find out what I've been up too this past year, what I've been playing, and let's see where it goes from there.

Good to see you're still aound Steve :D
I'm afraid this is one occasion where something really isn't better than nothing.
Well, better this than nothing.
Lets hope for at least one E3 podcast :)
You should add one of those widget things to the front page for all of us lazy types.
Good to know there is still a pulse! I also see that you are a prefectionist when it comes to putting content up. I respect that and I know how hard it must be to work and worry over something for a period of time, and starting again from scratch certainly seems daunting when you want everything to be perfect. To be blunt… I don’t think many care about the regular basis part. It doesn’t matter when, just that you do. Post when and what you feel like , this as well as other things are always better than nothing.
Totally agree with Null. Only people who plan their blog to be their primary income may have some reason for regular updates but I think the primary interesting thing about blogs were the rss support which allowed easy following of hundreds of blogs even if they only made one good post a year.
As a reader I much prefer blogs that only have content even if it's one post in two years rarely than those that have lot of noise and next to no content. Unfortunately it's obviously a questionable proposition if the business plan was to do regular brain farts and watch the ad-money roll in.
Yes! Lots of mini-content. I like it.
The only thought that kind of stuck with me the past 6 months is: "How would Steve comment in his following podcast on the spore release and the many turbulent fan concerns that have been on the internets" :)
Very sad news, Steve. I appreciate your effort and your posting. All things considered, I would still prefer a recording of you reading your Twitter posts out loud...but something is marginally better than nothing.
I like that info on twitter. Nice.
I still can't find a podcast as good as Gaming Steve, most out there are too silly, or go off on wild tangents *coughgiantbomb*. The Gaming Steve podcast is very professional, well laid out, and easy to listen to. I think you could be hired by some game review firm, I'm sure Yahtzee would get paid a good chunk of money.
