STOP SOPA! DON’T CENSOR THE NET!

Stop American Censorship!

Congress is about to pass Internet censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed.

We need to kill the bill – PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House –

to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

Happy New Year 2012!

FreeGamesNewsHere we are, once again, at the end of the year! This one was a tough one for me with a lot of exciting projects and the next one is promising to be even more exciting!

Now it’s time for me to meet my friends in a Belgium city called Waterloo (where the French Imperial army under the command of Emperor Napoleon was defeated by English and Prussian coalition army in 1815) and drink some Champaign!!

I sincerely hope you enjoyed visiting FreeGamesNews in 2010 and I wish you a very happy new year from Belgium. See you in 2011!

FreeGamesNews And here is Christmas Eve again! As I do every year, I wish Happy Holidays to all FGN’s visitors around the world! I hope your Holiday Season will be relaxing and fun. It’s heavily snowing here in Brussels and I’ll hit the road back to France tomorrow to see my family. Hope it’ll be fine! Anyway, see you soon… hopefully with some good new games!

New Layout

Categories: Site Stuff   19 comments - March 9, 2010

With the arrival of Spring, it’s time to clean and freshen up the site! As some of you may have already noticed, I decided to change the previous layout and adopt a more colorful one (no big changes though). I hope you like it (clear your cache and refresh this page if you don’t see the changes)!

Most of the games pages have now the same look and feel than the rest of the site.

I tested the new layout with all major browsers including IE6. That being said, I’m not very good with CSS and PHP, so if you spot anything wrong, just let me know!

 

Vacation time!

Categories: Site Stuff   5 comments - February 12, 2010

Just a quick update to inform you that I’m leaving on vacation tonight(!), and I get back in a week. If everything is ok, FGN should be updated daily with at least a new game release, but I can’t promise anything.

That being said, expect the next installment in the Asha’s Adventure series to be released somewhere next week! It takes place in Paris, and I’m confident you will enjoy it!

Check the site daily!

Site News: Latest Games and Games Ratings

Categories: Site Stuff   6 comments - January 13, 2010

FreeGamesNewsA new “Latest Games” list has been added to the sidebar on the right side of each page of the site to keep you updated with the latest games from all over the web. Also new on FreeGamesNews: you can now rate each game.  More to come soon…

FreeGamesNews has moved again!

FreeGamesNews

As regular visitors will have noticed, I had several issues with my previous server during the past year, so I included a “change server” in my list of New Year’s resolutions. If you are reading this, then the DNS has propagated in your area and you are now on our new server, which means I’ve already completed one of my 2010’s resolutions :-)

Now it’s time to check if everything went well and to start thinking about how to make this site even better.

If you have any suggestion to improve FreeGamesNews, please let me know!

Thank you for your patience and sorry for the little downtimes!

Ps: all games pages are now working fine!

Happy New Year 2010!

Surviving a Server Crash (this is not a game!)

Categories: Site Stuff   14 comments - July 22, 2009

As you may have noticed, Freegamesnews server was down for around 20 hours, due to a very bad crash disk after a server reboot (actually, the two drives mounted in Raid 1 on the server died and were replaced by new disks!). I feel very sorry for the lack of posts during the past 24 hours, but things went far beyond my control and I was just too busy working with my host to keep the server back on track.

Things are improving now, and should resume to normal soon. Please let me know if you spot anything wrong.

Thanks for your patience!

FGN Resume to normal?

Categories: Site Stuff   15 comments - March 2, 2009

Just a quick update to inform you that I’m working on the site again to better serve FreeGamesNews visitors. The new layout is similar to the previous one, but I decide to keep the content on the left side of the site, for a better/faster experience.

Please let me know if you spot anything wrong.

Thanks for your patience!

Edit: the server is still having problems, so the default theme is back

Site news

Do you know the Finagle’s Law? Anything that can go wrong, will — at the worst possible moment!

There were several dowtimes in the last couple of days on FreeGamesNews, and I strongly suspect I messed up customizing the new theme used for the site. So right now, I have no other choice but use the WordPress default theme, which works fine (really simple and clean code).

On top of that, I’m leaving on vacation tonight(!), and I get back in 10 days. I’ll do my best to keep FGN updated with new game releases, but I can’t promise anything. I’ve uploaded a few games (oldies but goodies), so expect at least one post per day in the next week.

Stay tuned, and sorry for the inconvenience!
