Vive La Resistance!
by GL News
While it may not be the end of the world to 99.9% of the global gaming fans, it’s a sad day here at GLHQ because UK Resistance has finally closed its heavily pixelated doors after fifteen years of serving spoonfuls of spooge for SEGA before morphing into a site covering a diverse range of news and reviews from our beloved gaming industry. If you browse GamingLives and come across a photo of a cosplayer or a horde of women dressed in very little standing around someone holding a video game, it probably came from UK Resistance. It was a site like no other, with satire being shovelled across its pages and a take on the gaming industry that would make Mary Whitehouse’s stands against the word “bum” seem like she was still asleep, the old trout.
In a typically hilarious goodbye video by Commander Zorg, we get to enjoy their weather predictions of “bleak” and “bleaker still” before finishing off with the all-too-familiar (to those of you as old as I am) BBC testcard image, except the only clown on screen is a certain PDM OBE. The site will remain online as a reminder of what they’ve brought to us and the hard work that had been put in since 1996.
Gary and Jon, we salute you and hope that blue skies prevail wherever you find yourselves. Vive la resistance!!
