Today is yet another historic day in GameCola’s long and illustrious history. June 26th has been celebrated for years on our Actual Internet Website GameCola.net, Gaming Outside the Mainstream—and today you’ll get to see exactly why!
As a reminder, GameCola’s history is so long and illustrious that it was around before Actual Internet Websites became popular. In fact, you could say that GameCola.net was a leader in the Actual Internet Website movement. As we existed in a monthly format before we moved to our current Actual Internet Website format, dates other than 1 were unimportant before 2009, and as such, the June 26th dates listed here will all be from the post-Actual Internet Website era.
With that in mind, let’s move on and learn about This Day in GameCola History!
It was only a year ago that Alex “Jeddy” Jedraszczak posted about Ascendant for PC. Developed by a crew local to his native Orlando, Ascendant is a great example of bringing the side-scrolling brawler into the new millennium. To see why this game put June 26th on the list, go read the review!
Michael Gray has always been known for his news coverage. In this “Fabricated News” entry from 2013, he talks about the latest gaming technology to take E3 by storm: post-rendering. What is it? Nobody knew in 2013. Nobody knows in 2015, either.
Michael Gray is back in 2012 with a review of Resonance, the then-new, now-classic sci-fi world-is-going-to-end point-and-click adventure game for PC. Being the huge point-and-click adventure game fans that we are, here at GameCola, it makes sense that we see a post like this on June 26th!
Wait a second—TWO posts on June 26th, 2012?! We really showed our June 26th spirit that year! Stu Gipp made this classic entry in his “Mid-Boss” comic series. We’ve come a long way since then, but this is still a shining entry in GameCola’s second longest running comic.
Former Editor-in-Chief and current Editor Emeritus Paul Franzen pulls out all the stops for this June 26th post from 2011, showing why Saints Row: The Third is a game to look forward—and, at this point, back—to.
No, no; it’s not a review! Short but sweet, our last post on the list comes from 2009. Michael Gray announces that his walkthrough for Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge (you know, the Game Boy one) has finally been completed! Ah, for those heady days of our youth, all those years ago. This June 26th was truly an historic day for GameCola.net, Gaming Outside the Mainstream.
