TheGamer

Founded in 2017 by Valnet Inc., TheGamer is a gaming site with a different spin on things. They wrote an extensive expose on workplace abuse at Techland, an oral history on Dragon Age: Origins, and they were the first to report that PlayStation was moving to shut the Vita store down. For all your news, views, and reviews, (and guides, but that doesn’t rhyme), you should bookmark TheGamer.
