The End – A Goodbye from Joseph

by Joseph Murphy - on Jun 4th 2014 - No Comments

So this is where the journey ends. Wow. How far we’ve come. Writing a post like this is something I guess I never thought I would have to face, but here we are. How on earth do I articulate and compress almost five years of my life into a single post? As Shane did, let me cast my mind back a little to the start of things if I may....

The End – A Goodbye from Shane

by Shane Willoughby - on Jun 4th 2014 - No Comments

Friends,                 I cannot begin to tell you just how proud I am of TGL. TGL is my hero. When I think back to how and why it started, there is no way that I could have possibly envisaged just how far it would go. It was never supposed to be anything other than what Joe and I wanted it to be, and it became readily...

Retroplayer here. I know, long time no see! Well, this is a post I never thought I’d make, but here we are. On the June 4th 2014, The Gaming Liberty will close its doors. However, while last time this only happened for a few months, this time it is final. Trust me I wouldn’t have seen this coming either if I was a reader,...

Join us

2013 has proved to be an eventful year for The Gaming Liberty to say the least, and now, we’re putting out the call that we want to expand our team. In July, as you might have seen, we stepped away from the daily grind of the site to re-evaluate things; our lives, the website… the future. As we did all of these things, there...

Kept you waiting, huh……?

by admin - on Oct 19th 2013 - 2 Comments

Hi all, Four years ago today on October 19th 2009, a couple of enthusiastic friends with a love for all things gaming, started TheGamingLiberty.com. They were uncertain times for us, not least because we essentially had no idea just what we were doing or what we wanted to achieve with TGL. Four years on, you could be forgiven for thinking...

The Gaming Liberty: Thank you but this is the end…for now

by admin - on Jul 12th 2013 - 3 Comments

It is with something of a heavy heart that we are announcing an indefinite hiatus of all things The Gaming Liberty as of right now. The decision comes after much soul searching on behalf of everyone at TGL, not least the original 2009 co-founders Joseph and Shane. This is something we thought we would never actually have to consider...

Heads-up: TGL server migration inbound

by Joseph Murphy - on May 2nd 2013 - No Comments

A simple post folks: we thought we’d give you all heads-up on our incoming server migration. The migration, which should take 24 hours to fully propagate, will see TGL move to a new cloud-based server. We’re expecting this move to reduce loading times by a whopping 69% at the initial jump, with more tweaks and speed optimisation...

Retro Review- Gladiator Begins

by Retroplayer - on Feb 17th 2013 - No Comments
gladiator begins review

  There are very few games based on the gladiatorial fighters of ancient Rome, as most Roman centric videogames focus on the epic battles that took place. This is understandable, of course, but the gladiator, the idea of a slave who must fight their way to freedom, is such an interesting basis for a game that I’m surprised it hasn’t...

You Should Play: Deadly Premonition

deadly premonition swery review tgl

Deadly Premonition is possibly one of the most critically polarizing games that has ever been released. IGN gave it 2/10, while Destructoid awarded it a strong 10/10. Who is right? Well, neither of them technically, but one more so than the other. Deadly Premonition, developed by Access Games and released in 2010, is both technically...
