The Sweet Runback – 2012 Retrospective


What’s good, everyone? Joshua Evo here, with the rest of the DRE crew in tow to thank all of you for the support we received this year and to dole out thanks and shout outs where they’re most definitely deserved. Back in February of 2011, James B. Boss and I had reached such levels of hype over the upcoming releases of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Pokemon Black/White that we started writing little personal reviews on our respective Facebook pages when the games were released. After some prodding from friends and family to “do that stuff more professionally”, we started the original Disk Read Error back on Blogspot. Fast forward to now, 110+ posts later, a major move to WordPress and we’re still here and still writing. 2012 has been an explosive year for us here at DRE and I wanted to thank all of our followers, readers and contributors for all the fun we’ve had this year. So, guess what? Shout outs incoming!

First shout outs go out to my all of fellow gaming bloggers but especially LadyCroft3, cary and Brit of Linksaveszelda, Recollections of Play and, respectively. It was a pleasure reading your blogs and working with you on various projects for DRE and I definitely look forward to working with you guys again. Extra thanks to LadyCroft3 for her work on our awesome banner as well as all the great feedback she offers and help she’s given during the year. You are an amazing lady (pun totally intended) and fantastic blogger and I wish you nothing but success in the future. Next up is the crew at thumbACTIVE for their support and seeing fit to grant us affiliate status with their site. Thanks also to the crew at The Nerdy Directive for having me as a guest on their podcast and allowing me to sit, ramble and nerd it up. I’m looking forward to doing some reviews for you guys in the future. I also have very special thanks to Konami for allowing us to be a part of Konami Gamers Night event this year and giving us a taste of that gaming media life. You guys make some of the world’s best games and here’s to hoping that we can maybe work with Konami in a more official capacity in the future? *wink wink*. My biggest thanks though go to our friends and family members who read our rantings (whether they agree, disagree or even know what we’re talking about or not) and to ANYONE who’s ever stopped by, read an article, retweeted, shared, followed, plugged or somehow supported Disk Read Error. It’s been a hell of a first year and we look forward to making 2013 even better. Thank you very much.

Hey everybody, James B. Boss here to thank you all for your support. This year has been really awesome for us here with all of the huge releases and gaming news and it was our pleasure to bring it to you. With this year coming to a close and the new year just around the corner, I would like to thank you all for all the support you have given us. I personally know I haven’t been the most active member of the staff but I hope to fix that in the year to come.

— James B. Boss

Hi everyone! Megan Highwind here to thank you all for taking the time to read our blog! I appreciate all of the likes, comments, and shares that you all have been giving our site. The next year looks to be a promising one and I hope you all are as excited about the games and the new adventures to come in the next year as I am. Thanks again for sticking with us and supporting us for the past year. See you in 2013! (If the world doesn’t end of course, dun dun dun!!!!!!)

Hello everyone. Jessica V. here to take a look back at the crazy year that we just had. When this year started I had no idea I would be working on a blog and when I did sign on, I thought I would be doing mostly backend, behind the scenes type things. Boy, did that change. Here we are a year later and the little blog that could is still gaining momentum. We owe that all to you, our readers. So personally, I would like to thank each and everyone of you that have taken the time to read, comment or even think about our articles. At Disk Read Error, we are just a bunch of crazies with opinions and a public forum (scary combination, right?). Seriously though, thank you all for reading and being a part of this. See you all in 2013. I tip my hat to you all.

-Jessica AWAY

  1. Thank you so much, you all are very special too, I love your blog 😀 If you ever need anything from me, be sure to let me know and I’d be glad to help. Here’s to another great year of blogging for us all *holds up toasting glass*!


    • Well thanks much! Linksaveszelda is one of my personal influences and it’s a honor to be able to work with you as often as I have. If you need anything from us, we’re willing to help/contribute as well. Also, you have probably the most awesome stream on Twitch. *Clink glass* Bring on 2013!
