A long time New Zealand based gaming site, Gameplanet has fallen victim to the hard times for media during COVID-19.
Gameplanet has been on life-support for a while now, as some readers may have observed. We’ve held out and sustained the financial losses for as long as we could, but there is, sadly, no realistic prospect of the business recovering, and so the decision has now been made to turn off the machine and put it to rest. The website will be shut down in the next few days.https://www.gameplanet.co.nz/news/g5ea8aa13d2038/Gameplanet-is-shutting-down/
I have been a member of the Gameplanet community (although not very active I admit) pretty much since they started out.
Compared to other forums, it was bit of a free for all to a degree, but once you got use to the sarcasm and attitudes, it was full of some truly funny, and knowledgeable users in all sorts of different areas.
The forums are being moved to Tapatalk, however if it continues to keep the same feel about it, remains to be seen.
