At the end of each year I like to take a look back at what happened with the site to show off all of our hard work to our fans.  Without you all none of our success would be possible.  Things could be better, EB could always use more traffic, but considering that this little adventure is more or less a one man show, I’m still pleased with our progress.

2012 was a busy year at EB HQ.  Not only did the site get a record amount of traffic, but it also afforded me a trip to E3, a guest post in Champion! magazine, Halo 4 and Blops 2 review copies, as well as a host of mobile game review copies.  We also gained a new part-time contributor in Robert Nelson, and started our own Beasts of the Week in Geek vlog!  It’s safe to say that 2012 was the most productive year in EB’s 3-year history, but I hope to say the same thing about 2013 during this same time next year.

With that being said I want to thank you all for your continued support.  Moving forward all I can ask for is for you to keep spreading the good word.  Tell your friends, family, enemies, neighbors, and anyone else who needs to be educated on all things geek about us.  In the mean time make sure to peruse some of the site statistics for 2012 that we’ve posted after the break.  You’ve been needing to keep doing what you’ve been doing…

  1. Have to go with the 3 boobed Martian hooker post, because it set a single day hit record with over 5k views
  2. We post tons of YouTube vids, especially from Mr. Wong, so the fact that he RT’d one this year is special
  3. We review tons of geeky shit each year, but I was especially proud of my work on the PS Vita review

  5. The creation of BotWiG – The world’s greatest geek vlog that no one watches
