Im not usually negative, but....

I really dont see this site becoming as active as it once was anymore hmm
Its really sad, I remember when we had so many great people working on games and posting tutorials, helping around the site. I imagine most people only visit the site a few times when they first get a PSP, and only to play the flash games, completely ignoring the forums. Since most people are able to get CFW installed, flash games are more or less useless to them, so they dont visit. This is essentially what happened to me, which is why I pretty much disappeared for a long time and never got active again. The homebrew scene was just so much more captivating, and full of really cool applications and games.

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

Maybe we should promote homebrew a little more on this site. Or maybe we should change it so PSPHomebrewgaming.

Honestly, I kinda agree. I know we should follow the rules, as there still are rules here, but the forum is..... dead. The good things is people still follow the rules, and that's why I like this site. I don't come here to play the flash games. I just like the community. My joint is hacked to so I ignore the flash games now.

Screw all those people. You feel me?

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

I've also 'given up' with flash games as well...
It's just not as innovative as it used to be.

Oh well, what can you do? Change is a part of life.

tallphil and the people who contributed to the site did a great job. It's true. Things have really changed. Every now and then I come back to post on the site but I hacked my PSP so...... yeah.

We all know that this site won't come back to life and couldn't even if we changed the sub or main topic of the site, most likely. So it may as well be taken down, as pessimistic it sounds. Like Shinsukeito wrote: change is a part of life. Especially in gaming communities.

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

Everyone gave up on this site a long time ago. What else can you do?

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

Aw guys, sad times. I like to keep the site running because it's my baby - I put it together when I was a fledgling website designer and yet it still drives the most traffic out of any sites I've written. If you have a look at the site stats, you can see that quite a people are still playing games.

The ads running on the site just about cover the hosting fees, and whilst that continues, I'm happy to keep the site running for as long as I can...

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

I'm still designing PSP Flash games. And Tenebris Crystallis came out very recently as well! If everyone here were pitching in a bit of work here and there, I bet we could generate some traffic. And just imagine, once the Vita has Flash, we'll be able to work with much more complex games! More intensive mouse control, 2GB of RAM on our new platform... And most likely a later version of Flash as well!

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

What do people think about doing a rebranding exercise on the site? Make it less PSP centric, and more homebrew-flash-games..?

I'm finally coming to the end of my 22 year long education (scary!) and don't know what I'll be doing next year, but there's a chance that I might be doing a lot more website design and could finally have time to do some work on the site..

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

nice, opening the site to Flash Games In General would sure increase activity.

One Suggestion, A Highscores function that we, the developers could use with the site would be awesome. I'm currently working on Portable Fishing 2012, and I'd love to add this function big_smile

Re: Im not usually negative, but....

You could always change the site around and have it so the content caters to not only PSP gamers, but the DS fanbase as well. The only problem would be to find developers that would be willing to put in the time and effort into making DS based flash games (if that's even possible?)
