What’s Your Tag?

cropped-cropped-wyt-banner1.jpg
We know there are literally thousands of other gaming sites floating around the internet, but our goal is approach this market differently and offer passionate content with a great sense of humor that makes you want to stop by and visit everyday. We take what we do very seriously, but we wouldn’t continue if we couldn’t have fun with it. We also understand that you may not appreciate what we do right away. We’re not some crappy pop song you can hear on the radio once and sing along to it. We’re the sophisticated track that takes several listens to appreciate, but eventually becomes one of your favorites.

We Love Video Games

The main reason we started What’s Your Tag? is because we all love video games and the experiences that go along with them. Some of our fondest memories are the moments of our childhood that we spent playing with friends and family. Together we could tackle any challenge and overcome impossible odds, but for us it didn’t always have to be a social affair. Playing a great game by ourselves allowed us to be fully immersed in spectacular worlds filled with fascinating characters. The art and passion that goes into game development can honestly be overwhelming sometimes, but that’s what makes us so attached to the medium. Video games are something we can all share and we love sharing that connection with our readers.

But What Exactly Do You Folks Do?

We do as much as we possibly can. Our crew is fairly small, but that’s the way we like it. We all share an intimate connection with the website and possess the same vision for it’s future. Originally What’s Your Tag? started off as a simple weekly web comic highlighting the adventures of Mileson and Kafka Luck. We’ve since expanded our selection of content and now provide video game news, reviews, commentary, and a strange variety of other shenanigans. To the untrained eye, this may seem like a traditional news/review site, but after browsing our catalog and reading a few articles, we think you’ll find it’s much more. No other site in the world delivers the same offbeat brand of humor as our comics or the fan favorite, JaPokeHeeMon.

I Don’t Get the Name

What’s Your Tag? started off as an inside joke between a couple friends and I. We took the stigma of the awkward gamer nerd having trouble flirting with the ladies and completely reversed it, turning “what’s your tag?” into a pickup line. When you see a hot gamer chick at a bar, forget asking for her number, just ask for dat gamertag. We loved this concept and decided to use it as the name for our website. Asking questions is the key way to start conversations and that’s what we’re all about. We love talking with our audience and frequently ask for their opinions and input. Our weekly Nerd Wars! segment is completely devoted to community interaction. If you’re interested, here is the origin comic of What’s Your Tag?.

Why Don’t You Cover a Wider Variety of Subjects?

When we say we’re passionate about video games, it doesn’t mean we’re passionate about all video games. We try to focus on content we’re legitimately interested in and excited about. We all have our favorite genres and that’s what we prefer to cover. Having a strong personal connection with a project makes it that much easier to write about. We’re not going to cover FIFA or Flappy Bird just because it’s the flavor of the week. We’re going to highlight material that we believe in and want to see succeed. Our reviews and opinions are completely honest and we stand by what we do.

TEAM XBRO? But What if I Play Other Stuff?

TEAM XBRO BANNER

One of the running jokes of What’s Your Tag? is that we’re all hardcore Xbox fanboys. We embrace generic bro culture, Xbox, and Mountain Dew in an ironic way and that’s just kind of our thing. TEAM XBRO is simply an outlet for like-minded individuals to get together and talk about the games they love and organize adult play-dates. You don’t even need to own an Xbox to participate. Wanna throw down on some Killer Instinct or maybe organize a raid in Final Fantasy 14? Perfect. Just join the group and slap up a post. Everyone is welcome and we encourage our regular readers to join.

“Gamer” is Such an Ugly Word

We’re not fans of the term”gamer.” In many ways it’s a derogatory term that’s used to describe someone in a very one-dimensional way. We’re human beings with unique tastes, lifestyles, and hobbies, so please don’t reduce us or anyone else to a single word. You wouldn’t call someone who watches movies a filmer or a movier, would you?

I hope this gives you a better understanding of What’s Your Tag?. We pour our heart and souls into this website and hopefully it shows through in our content. If you like what you see and want to help support what we do, feel free to drop us a comment or share an article. We also love seeing new followers, so be sure to watch our exploits on Facebook or Twitter.

A huge thanks to everyone who’s stopped by and made what we do possible. Your comments and encouragement have kept the dream alive and we would have nothing without your support. You’re all super rockstars with tight bodies and everyone should be jealous of your awesomeness. There is no better feeling than popping online and seeing a bunch of positive comments from you guys and gals. What’s Your Tag? may only be a small fish right now, but hopefully one day it grows into a whale or something poetic like that.

Hugs and Kisses,

Miles Dompier – Chief Editor/Founder

      1. The website initially began as a web comic. We release a new comic every Monday and we provide various news articles and rants throughout the week. We always try and stay up to date with current events, but we aren’t trying to cover everything by any means.

      2. We are working towards a full time staff, but as of right now it’s just three amigos, working other jobs and trying hard to spread the What’s Your Tag? magic.

      3. Thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time to give our website a solid look. We are essentially volunteers at this point. We got sponsored by Word Ads and we have a Google AdSense account, so as long as our traffic continues to increase we should start making a little money.

  1. Thanks for stopping by and liking my post. I love your site. I consider myself an intermediate gamer and your site is a gamer’s dream!

    Best,
    N

  2. I think I’ll keep hanging around here, too, looks nice. =D And on that note, thanks so much for liking my post – gives me a little more hope that there may actually people out there reading my gaming rambling ;)

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Definitely appreciate the support. I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit jealous that you’re living in the Bahamas…. It was 65 degrees and cloudy in Washington.

      1. Haha yeah it’s kind of upsetting considering this is apparently our summer. But what can you do I guess? I can always go sit indoors and drink coffee. That would be very Washington of me.

  3. Hey guys, the blog looks really good, especially loving the reviews section.

    Will be checking back in frequently, really well put together and organized.

    Followed on twitter as well so hope to hear more from you =]

    1. Well shucks! When you do get that xbox back up and running make sure you get some gaming in with us. I will go ahead and send you a friend request now. A little treat for when you’re xbox is back online.

      1. Why, thank you, kind sir! It’s really hard trying not to get distracted since it’s a portfolio I’m putting together. I miss playing it >_< Too bad I still watch the Yogscast though! Haha.

      2. Don’t worry, you will always have your xbox to make it through those difficult situations. Once you graduate I’m sure you and your xbox will have a good laugh about it.

  4. Thanx for the like on my post! gonna add you to my list. Anytime you want to talk anime and J-pop music stop by and leave a note. My site is still young so i need all the likes i can get (hehehe). Your doing a good job keep it up!

  7. Very nice blog! Hoping to build up my own to be as good as yours (if not better! :p ), but alas that’ll be a ways off as I’m just one guy trying to manage everything for my own stuff.

    In any case, do you guys have any interest in the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines? Noticed you just started out a little playthrough with commentary for Dead Space 3’s demo. Perhaps we could team up and form a four player squad to tackle Aliens’ campaign yeah?

    1. Thank you very much sir! We work hard at our site every single day and are viewer base is growing exponentially. Thanks for stopping by and sharing some comments.

      We are very interested in Aliens: Colonial Marines, I’ve been following that game since it was announced by in 2007. Right now we have a group of 3, possibly four of us who are going to be playing. Shoot me a friend request and Xbox Live and we will definitely try and work some playtime in.

  15. Thank you for liking my post about Black&White 2; I’m surprised that someone pays attention to reviews of older games that aren’t exactly considered as classics…By the way, your blog has a very interesting outline and I think I should add it to my hunting grounds….*clears throat* I mean, count me in as follower.
    I wish a nice hunt in the gaming grounds

    1. No problem at all. The Black and White series is probably one of my all-time favorites on PC. I’m a huge fan of revisiting under appreciated games.

  19. Hello from the UK and thanks for the “likes” on my blog. Please don’t mind me as I go through the archives of yours. :)

    Oh, and…

    Me: You have my follow.
    Legolas: And my Bow.
    Gimli: And my Ass.
    Me:…
    Gimli: Axe! I mean Axe!

    Yeah couldn’t resist.

  20. Hahahaha! I’m so excited that you referenced this. That is probably my favorite comic of all the ones we’ve made so far.

    No problem at all sir! Thanks for stopping by and digging around our archives. If you see something you like, feel free to share!

    We’re also on the ol Facebook and Twitter if you feel like chatting!

    Take care!

      1. Sweet dealio! I will give you a follow as well. We can keep in touch like all the other cool kids on Twitter.

  21. Was about to nominate you for the “One Lovely Blog Award”, but I see you’ve already been nominated by someone! Oh well, keep doing the good stuff! The comics are the best <3

    1. Thank you very much for stopping by and almost nominating us! Haha. Thanks for the very kind words on the comics, which is your favorite?

      1. You’re welcomed! You have great stuff :) Oh I had a few favorites, but I think the best were the Animal Crossing and that Frodo+Gimli LOTRO ones.

  22. Hey, thanks for dropping by my blog and liking my Gone Home review. It’s always nice to connect with others who appreciate awesome adventure games. Really impressed with your blog and comic strips, will definitely have to stop by again. :)

  23. Oh boy! I’m thrilled that real comic writers stopped by. Actually it’s my son who is the comic writer. He used to have a site, but didn’t renew it quick enough and now some so and so has the rights and will only sell it back for an astronomical amount. YIKES!!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and chatting with us! It sounds like your son is in the middle of quite the comic custody battle. We wish him all the best!

  24. Tag-boys, I’m no gamer (well save the odd blaze on NO$GBA, but whatevz); however, I’d like to thank-you for all this hot attention you’ve been giving my blog. It’s not gone unnoticed. Actually, I kinda’ like it. In fact, I wanna’ take our relationship to the next step. Would you like to indulge in some mutual stalking? i.e #FOLLOW4FOLLOW?

  25. Hey guys, I know I normally spam your articles with comments, but I just wanted to say you guys are doing a great job! I don’t normally play multiplayer games with people, but I’d love to play something at some point.

    Steam: skyazure (Treasure Hoarding Dragon Jerks)
    XboxLive: Sky Azure (I’m never on this though)
    PSN: Djeuty

    1. We appreciate having you stop by and comment. It’s always cool seeing regular faces on the site. We’re always on one system or another and we’d love to play with ya!

      I’ll be sure to add you on Xbox Live! Here’s my info as well.

      Xbox Live: I Mileson I
      Steam: Mileson
      Wii U: Mileson
      PSN: Mileson (PS3 isn’t even hooked up, though.)

  26. This website looks great!
    So lately, I’ve been looking for a new writing staff. Would you like to help write for the Gnosis new blog? We need some help with the sorting of the website and writing. You can write anytime you want. Well bye.

  27. I really like your writing style, brother! I’m just getting started in the big wide world of gaming journalism and I’m still trying to find my own. I also really enjoy your sites content, bravo sir!

    1. Thanks homey! I really appreciate you stopping by and checking out what we do. We’ve been at this for just over two years now and it can definitely be a slow process, but it’s a ton of fun. Feel free to shoot any questions my way!

      -Miles
