    There itself.
    As reported last month, the video game trailer website GameTrailers closed down after 13 years following a change in the website's ownership.

    Just a few hours ago, the staff announced that they have regrouped, forming a new team under the name of Easy Allies. They've opened a YouTube channel, a Twitter and a Twitch account under their new name and will be shooting a weekly podcast and streaming each weekday, with group streams on Tuesdays.

    In order to support their endeavours, they have also set up a Patreon account, meaning that the amount pledged will shape the team and its future projects.

    Glad they are coming back but that video felt really weird, like they are not their usual selves. Very wooden.

    Wow that is a terrible name. I hope for their sakes that it's just a temporary placeholder until they figure out a good name.

    And just today morning I was thinking about GT. The old site is still online, as I checked few hours ago and now this! I'm happy for them! Instant subscribe!

    Does that mean the return of Final Bosman and his Mr. Mime? D:
    And Buttons!?

    yeah man Gametrailers was one of the best sites a while back.
    but that new name just sucks, sorry to say. Not appealing at all and not seemingly gaming related

    The Final Bosman is where it's at, my boys!

    I hope they keep that format, but this time, they call it "The Mid Bosman".
    Where he gets to be constantly laughed at and insulted by Laharl.
