Big Things Coming to! (Finally!)

April 7, 2011 Comments off

The team is slowly but surely assembling. It looks like TheAgentX has returned from his long slumber, and the addition of TheCoopster and Bujungo to our stable of writers/podcasters/etc will do wonders for content.

Long story short, stay tuned to the ByteGamer News Bite, Wednesdays at 9PM CST on and live in the University of Missouri-St. Louis Millennium Student Center!

With summer comes slightly more free time, which means updates and tweaks to the ByteGamer site. Finally, finally, we’re gonna be a real community!
