    Presenting The New Twin Galaxies

    Hey everyone!

    My name is Jesse Collins and I'm the new Editor in Chief of Twin Galaxies. I wanted to come on here real quick and introduce myself a little bit and make a call for action.

    Starting in 2007, I made a website named We The Gamers (now defunct) that helped me to meet and eventually be mentored by Bill "The Game Doctor" Kunkel. Additionally, I have worked alongside some of the most well-known industry professionals, and have learned from tons of classic game industry folks. I have run conferences, been in public relations, and been a hard-boiled game journalist ever since.

    The website is changing. But, don't worry. The forums will remain, as well as the records, more or less exactly how you see them now. But, Jace Hall has decided to provide an experience that offers insight into players and their games that you just won't find on normal esports and gaming sites. Our focus will be on record holders, speed runners, esports, and competitive gamers as a whole.

    That's where my call to action comes to play. This is our plan: We're launching the new website very soon and want you to be a part of it. We want to talk to you. We want to hear how you beat that record. We want to hear your tips for the best way to beat the hard level.

    Thank you for your support. We want to do you proud and make Twin Galaxies the highlight of the game industry, as it should be.

    Editor in Chief

    Welcome Jesse, I'm actually surprised, since we know each other outside of TG but this is awesome news! I look forward to your contributions and the many exciting things to come.

    Hi Jesse:

    Can you define what the role entails so we know what your area(s) of focus shall be ?

    Thanks.

    Hey! So, as Editor in Chief, I'll be focusing the majority of my time on the editorial side of things (with the occasional stroll through the forums). TG has always been about competition and the players themselves. We want to highlight the old and the new all at once to help bring TG into the modern era (esports, speedrunners, etc), but still respect and understand the past (retro, score keeping, etc). My incredibly talented, incoming team and I want to embrace you all, as well as the new things out there. We want to make you proud. As for anything else happening, we plan to make official announcements here soon. I just wanted to get the ball rolling and come say "Hey, I exist".

    Jesse

    Welcome aboard Jesse! Exciting times indeed!

    I really look forward to your contributions to Twin Galaxies. I always enjoyed Jace's "State of the Galaxies" which gave us sneak peaks at the future. Hopefully we will get more of the same. :)
