Well… I’m back and with a new website and look. Let’s get this awkward introduction out of the way.
For those of you that don’t know me, I’m formerly known as Drakulus from the now-abandoned website that I won’t name because it’ll just take you to someone else. So what happened? My former host (Hugoton Hosting) is going under at the end of this month due to Covid. I was unable to recover my website and files that I’ve worked on over the last 7 years and I was forced to start again with a new host.
To be completely honest with you I don’t really mind starting over. My old website had become too bloated and I felt forced to keep working on it even though I secretly wanted a change. I had so much content on there that I felt overwhelmed to keep it alive. This fresh start allowed me to sit back and think of what I wanted this new website to be. I think my website’s new slogan is exactly what I want this website to be. A place where you can find real game journalism and not the pandering bullshit or nonstop controversies that we have now. Just pure video game coverage that doesn’t force political ideas down your throat.
This will be a place for honest game coverage, reviews, and opinion pieces that no one will agree with. Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be tweaking things here as well as introduce you all to the new logo that I have in the works. I’m reviving my old podcast and focusing on what type of content I want to provide for you all to read and watch. I’ll be self-hosting my own podcast here so you won’t have to go to a third party website to listen to it and I’m trying to see if it’s possible for me to host my own videos too since I’m not a fan of Youtube and the way they treat their content creators.
There’s a lot I want to do with this new opportunity I’ve been given and I plan on making the most of it. I’m not officially back yet, but I’m getting really close and I wanted to update everyone on what I’ve been doing behind the scenes as well as what happened to my old website.
I’m Omar. I’m the founder of drakulus.com and the new founder of Petescorner.net. I cover every type of game genre there is and I’m using all of the skills I learned over the last 7 years working on Drakulus to make Pete’s Corner the best it can be. My favorite types of games are strategy, RPGs, and Shooters. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy other types of genres. Those are just my top 3. You can expect my brutally honest opinion on what I think of games in long reviews, editorial pieces, and game news coverage.
