What is Reset Glitch all about?
Reset Glitch is about covering gaming as we see fit. This isn’t a site focused on journalism, or reporting every last bit of news that hits the web. We’re about covering topics of interest on the hobby we love most.
Who are the guys behind the keyboard?
As of right now, there are four of us. Primarily, you’ll see me (Justin) posting and covering some of the more interesting news hitting the web. Other writers more focused on features and reviewing are Mike S., Mike (yep, two of them) and Chris. Keep a look out for names at the bottom of a post to see who is writing what.
To add a bit of confusion, we now have a second Chris G. who will be adding his contributions to the site when necessary. He’ll take on the role of super awesome photographer guy during events like E3 and other trade events.
So yes, that’s one Justin, a Mike S., a Mike C., a Chris C., and a Chris G. Confusion confirmed.
Where’s the score at the end of your reviews?
After going back and forth on the issue, the decision was made to not include a score. We may keep it this way, or we may change it in the future. Having just now started up this blog, we’re not delusional and we realize most people will have read tons of other reviews before seeing ours.
That frees us of feeling forced to put out a number for people to scroll to instantly before backing out of the review and griping about it. Our hopes are to have people actually read what our reviews say, and take away from that whether or not it’s a game for them.
Any plans to podcast?
Definitely. We’re just now starting out, but we have a lot of plans for the future. Podcasting almost seems like a necessity at this point, or at the very least, something extremely beneficial to have. On top of that, we love to ramble, piss and moan about games, so it seems like a natural fit.
What about weekend updates?
The short answer is yes, but the updates won’t be as plentiful.
Who can I contact with any questions about the site?

The following post was written on Feb. 10:
The site is updating at a slow pace today, but I can assure you I’m working my ass off just as hard as any other day. So while the news may be trickling in, it’s all for a good cause – that cause being E3 ’09.
Currently, I’m trying to line up all of our credentials and make sure we’ll be all set to make a return to La La Land for what will likely be the best gaming event of the year. On top of getting the credentials, I’m trying to get some help along with me to make the flow of content significantly better come E3.
So far it’s looking to be Michael and I providing most written content, but if all goes according to plan, we’ll have Chris G. tagging along with us to take care of the photos. While having a total of three people is still a small crew to work with, it’s better than working alone.
For most sites it seems easy to get press credential access to E3, but having just started up there’s a bit of a process we’re having to go through. Hopefully we’ll have everything taken care of by the end of this week, and we’ll be good to go.
It’s also looking like we’ll be branching out of the extreme limitations of having a WordPress.com site. Admittedly, I’ve never run a site so I really wasn’t aware of that before starting it up. Initially, I just wanted a site to throw out some gaming news with opinions, with the help of a few friends.
Now, however, my desires are reaching out a bit further. I’ve already paid for the domain transfer, and we’ll be looking for a new host until one hopefully sticks out as “the one.” Currently we’re stuck with a basic template layout because quite honestly, I’m not leet enough to making something better – hopefully that changes in the future. I also hope to have a banner that’s more than my own weak effort through none other than MS Paint – no promises there though, at least not just yet.
Since creating the site, we’ve seen a slow, but steady increase of visitors. To be clear, Reset Glitch gets nowhere near the ideal number of hits, but I didn’t create this expecting overnight success. With the host swap comes things that will hopefully bring some additional traffic to the site, such as podcasting.
From the outset, I’ve always thought of podcasting as a necessity, and I still do. Now that we’re narrowing the focus on what exactly Reset Glitch is, things like podcasting can actually begin to happen – and so they will. Now it’s about who will podcast. I’ll be a part of the show, and Michael S. will be as well. Not only do I trust his opinion, but we live in the same city so that’ll be easy enough. I’d love to get Chris C. and Mike C. on as well, so hopefully podcasting via Skype isn’t too much of a bitch.
Well, I’ve said a mouthful. What was intended to be a brief status update on today’s happenings turned into something a bit larger in scope. Because of that, I’ll go ahead and add this to the bottom of the FAQ so people can get a bit more information on what the goal of Reset Glitch is.
To all those who visit the site: thanks for the support. While most comments are coming from friends of the site, or even contributors to the site themselves, I’d like to encourage everyone with something to say to leave a comment. Good or bad, it really doesn’t matter – leaving feedback of any kind is appreciated.
