Did you know that there are games that aren’t crowdfunded?  I know, it’s hard to believe, but there’s a whole world of games out there that we don’t cover on Cliqist.  In fact, there are other websites that cover the games we shun.  Yes, dear reader, there are gaming news sites out there other than Cliqist!

Before you start clicking your Choikawadeco mouse wildly, let me tell you about OnlySP.  OnlySP, know more formally as Only Single Player, is a site created by Nick Calandra that covers single player games, and only single player games.  I’ve loved niche gaming sites for a long time, and OnlySP is definitely one that I make a point to read on a regular basis.

So, where exactly am I going with this rambling bit of fluff?  Nick and I have joined up to launch a new niche gaming site called Multiplayer Focus, or MPFocus if you’re looking for a shorter tattoo.  As you can tell from the name MPFocus will cover nothing but multiplayer games; big name ones like Battlefield 1, all the way down to smaller independent ones like Battalion: 1944.  As with Cliqist and OnlySP, MPFocus’s (MPFocuses?  MPFocus’?) unique niche will allow the team to dive deeper and tell more interesting stories on a relatively narrow slice of the gaming world.

What changes will you see on Cliqist after MPFocus launches?  Nothing, I and the rest of the team at Cliqist will keep doing what we’ve been doing for the past 3 years: covering the lovely world of crowdfunded games.

While MPFocus.com is up and running now, the official launch won’t come until August 1st.  In the mean time be sure to follow it on Twitter and Facebook, we’ll be busy staffing up, creating content, and making sure it lives up to the quality that readers of Cliqist and OnlySP have come to expect.  Come launch though you’ll have three websites to get gaming news from!  Well, I guess there’s always Gamespot, but have you seen their latest redesign?
