Malware threat from GameObserver

One of the reasons that I started my blog was because I had submitted some amateur reviews to the administrator of a start-up gaming website called GameObserver.com. They showed an interest in my opinions, and encouraged me to put them out there for everyone to see. Shortly after submitting a few reviews to their site, and with the encouragement and support from Chichian, I started up this blog so that I could share opinions about things that I felt were important or interesting. So in many ways, I have the administrators of GameObserver to thank for this blog and for all the fulfillment that it has brought me. And if you've enjoyed any of my posts, then you also have GameObserver to thank.

Unfortunately, the administrators of GameObserver seem to have abandoned the site, as it has not been updated for several years, and I have fallen out of contact with them. Now it seems that the site has either been hacked or the domain has expired and fallen into the hands of malware distributors. I have thus removed all links to GameObserver from my blog posts in an attempt to ensure the security of my readers. I hope that I managed to catch this before any of my readers suffered from malware infections due to links that I posted on any articles.

If anybody finds any posts that still have links to GameObserver, please notify me through the comments on this post so that I can remove said link. The last thing I want is for any of my readers' machines to become infected with malware.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll come back again soon!

With EA Sports College Football in the mix, we'll have a full slate of football video games in 2022/2023!With EA Sports College Football in the mix, we'll have a full slate of football video games in 2022/2023!02/03/2021 Last year (around this same time, in fact), we football video game fans were given the bombshell news that EA's exclusive contract with the NFL wasn't quite as exclusive as we thought. That contract apparently only covered "simulation" football games (which makes me wonder how or why EA has the license to begin with, since they...

Sony's first "Long Live Play" advertisement is released - and it hits the spot!Sony's first "Long Live Play" advertisement is released - and it hits the spot!10/06/2011 A few weeks ago, I started reading about some new ad campaign that Sony was planning called "Long Live Play". I was kind of disappointed to hear that Sony would be taking a new approach to its advertising, as I actually really enjoyed some of the early Kevin Butler ads. Today, I saw the first advertisement in this new campaign,...
