Changed Namespace, yeah...

->''"Have you ever sat around and just thought to yourself, "Paul, what do you want to do with your life? Do you want to waste it all away playing Nintendo, or do you want to make something of yourself?". Being that that was a rhetorical question, a response is not expected; but if there is one, I'd guess it is "no", because your name's not Paul. Regardless of name (rose by any other, etc.), that is a valid question for most players of video games. After contemplating it for nearly four seconds, I decided to do both. Hence, [[GameCola GameCola]].''"

[[GameCola GameCola]] is a site devoted to observing video games in a clever and humorous light. It takes a completely unbiased and honest look into video games and video game culture, and ridicules as much of it as the writers comprehend. This is simply a group of gamers who love playing video games, and enjoy sharing their opinions, sense of humor, and love of gaming with the audience of the internet.

From 2002-2005, the site was a updated once a month in a newsletter-like format, having every article written for the site collected and posted onto one single webpage. Because of long load times on bad connections, and simply being a bad idea in general, the site retained the monthly update schedule, but adopted a magazine format, with every individual article getting it's own page. The slow update schedule prevented [[GameCola GameCola]] from obtaining a larger fanbase and readership (most people would simply forget the site ever existed). So in June 2009, [[GameCola GameCola]] officially released its final issue, and announced plans for a total re-haul of the site in order to obtain a more modern style. That is to say, doing what everyone in the modern age does, and post new articles once they are ready to be published. Since June, the site continues to be on hiatus, with new content in the form of YouTube videos and posts on the site's blog, with a message to the readership every month to remind people that the site is still alive, and is making sure that the new site's launch is absolutely perfect.

* GamerChick: Somewhat. Vangie Rich is somewhat of a gamer in training, due to her relationship with her significant other (who also writes for [[GameCola GameCola]]). Her column, [[http://www.gamecola.net/archgg Gamer Girlfriend]], showcases her experence with video games and hardcore gamers from an outside perspective. * [[HostileShowTakeover Hostile Site Takeover]] : On AprilFoolsDay 2009, Zach Rich took over [[GameCola GameCola]], changing the site's name to Zach Rich?s Slightly Carbonated Extravaganza for the Hard of Hearing. He then kicked out all of the other writers on the site, and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech proceeded to explain exactly why he hated every single other person on the site.]] According to an episode of the podcast, Zach had a lot more planned for the joke, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot but his computer was swarmed by viruses before he could get any other articles finished in time for April Fools.]]
