What is Vidjogames?
Vidjogames is website that’s aspiring to be the go-to site for video gamers in the Philippines. The site will cover gaming consoles, portables/mobile, and PC gaming, and will be written specifically for the Filipino gaming community. To make the site cater to the Filipino gamer, reviews of games and gaming devices will include prices from popular retail stores, local release dates and prices will be spotlighted, feature stories will center on issues faced by the Filipino gamer, local gaming events will be covered, and lastly, the Filipino game development community will be covered as well (the author works in the local game development industry).
While some local gamers might expect the site to cover anime/cosplay and PC hardware, Vidjogames will refrain from covering the said stories as the site aims to focus on video games and not the related fields.
Expect to read a steady flow of gaming news, reviews, and features so check back often!
About the name
The name comes from how some Filipino kids (or adults) pronounce video games as /”vidjogames”/. A good example can be heard in the Filipino-made animated movie RPG Metanoia, wherein the main character says “vidjogames” in a very distinguishable manner.
Plans for the site
Currently, the site is using WordPress (obviously) but there are plans to purchase an actual domain, a proper web host, and an infinitely better design if the site gains enough hits and regular visitors.
