    Gaming forums are dying, well forums in general as communities move to FB groups and other crap like that thats fueled by datamining but hey, its "free".

    Welcome to the age of social media.....

    Been here for a good few years but after the first site closure turned into a lurker once again.

    Will miss this site and it’s historical value; lots of very specialised and hard to find information came to light here over the years, in addition to all of the preservation work achieved.

    Think I’d prefer to remember it for that instead of all the drama that was engrained in the site the past few years.

    Farewell AG ^_^

    Sorry for not following what could prove me wrong but wouldn't having more ads at least cover the hosting expenses? It's not like it's a dead forum, ads could definitely bring back around $3k annually.

    I agree, but I think forums still have their place. Like for something like this where you want a record of all the info shared, I think it works well, it's just not very popular anymore. Imagine digging through Facebook posts to try to find something.

    Yeah that's an option. The owner just isnt interested in saving the site.

    This is a shame. I've mostly been lurking the past two years, but I will definitely miss this place.

    It's a shame to see AG go. Wishing everybody all the best for the future.

    Bye everyone. Thanks for everything you've put into this community. This is a major loss, regardless of what happens next.

    Obscure gamers just doesn't grip me in the same way yet.

    All the best to everyone.

    It was all just being over dramatized guys...

    ASSEMblerGames is NOT CLOSING.
    It is only having it's name changed from "ASSEMblerGames," to "K KEV."

    Proof below.

    Welp, I've just found about this today, with the closure already past due.
    I didn't do much here, but I'll sure miss the place. It sure is a pity to see it go.
    Goodbye and fare well.

    I would think the billing cycle is monthly, and assuming the host is in the US, June is not over yet. I would expect it to go offline within the next 12 hours, but it might take longer depending on what kind of grace period the host has for nonpayment.
