News on igamesnews.com Gaming Live is dead, long live Gaming Live!
You probably noticed, but since March 15th, Gaming Live has suddenly stopped. Of course, the situation regarding Covid-19 did not help bring you new GLs, but that state has also emerged from an internal reflection on the format, its place within the site and the way you rethink it. So we told ourselves that the brand had to survive and that it was logical that it should encompass even more the main function associated with its name: Game and Live. But before we get back to that, a brief history of Gaming Live for those who have missed the last 14 years of igamesnews.com.
The first GL was born on March 15, 2006. For the anecdote, know this name was found by Geoffrey Caillot, says Jeff, a former site seller who had the distinction of being energetic all the time and screaming as soon as he walked into a room.
As you can imagine, live gaming has evolved both in shape and tone over the years. It’s a great panda to get the ball rolling with a GL from single player Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II. We will therefore apologize for the somewhat hesitant tone, although all the information is there, supported by the legendary severity of the man, which is hardly offset by the humor of Franck, who, meanwhile, gave Gaming Live his enthusiasm and spontaneity for many, many years. We would like to thank him warmly in passing, because he is also the one who has made a significant contribution to the success of the format..
As mentioned earlier, live gaming will evolve over time by changing the logos multiple times. From the robot from 2006 (don’t ask us about the why and how of this choice) to the first logo change on June 6, 2008, to a third logo on February 18, 2010 and a fourth on August 31, 2016, the format is also right different variations within the same artistic direction or different variations like Gaming Live Oldies, Gaming Live Party etc. Note that the name Gaming Live is also used by our first web TV. Who said igamesnews.com is not environmentally conscious ?!
Every journalist can of course quote you his favorite gaming live (for my part, my heart fluctuates between the one who has proven that Rivaol was never very good with a controller, a great stove laugh with Anagund or the one with Panthaa That will only get us from the readers We never really understood why and how), but we couldn’t review the memories of all the people who vividly animated these videos for 14 years. I can only thank all of my valued colleagues who attended and apologize in advance to those I forgot:
- As a matter of fact
- Mr. Deriv
- Pixel pirate
- Star gazers
- Super panda
For those who love numbers, here are some Gaming Live that stood out for their length or number of views:
As we said in the preamble, Gaming Live will rise from its ashes at the latest next Wednesday from 12 noonabove A stream of the eagerly awaited Cyberpunk 2077, which should follow on the website, our channel Youtube but also Facebook Live. If we’ve offered you a lot of streams in the past (via Lunch Play and other special programs), this week we’re introducing the live format and what better name is there for this selection than … Play The Live.
