Urban Radio is gearing up for its first show since the final day off 2005. I find it hard to believe it has been over 8 months since I last was on air with Urban Radio. Unfortunately, life takes some turns and when they do you must make sure you don’t run off that road. It’s not all that bad, over the course of 8 months there has really not been much happening in the Urban Terror community. More gamers leaving the game then coming in. Not surprising considering the game is 6 years old. A feat I never thought I would see.
I guess that is a bit of a testament to the core group of gamers we have. But it seems to be more then that too. It’s also the friendships you make along the way. Aside from the team members I have worked with for 2-4 years, there are the gamers I have gotten to know. And one I married! So, I guess the game does hold a “special place” for me.
So Urban Radio comes back on Friday, August 25 on Inside the Game with a Q&A show based on community input. We are nearly half way through The 27 Days of Terror and going strong [if I am not crashing the web site]. Community support has probably been the strongest we have seen in nearly 6-8 months. But that does not equate to a success…yet. The decision to bring back Urban Radio is because of the community.
It will be interesting to see how strong the support for the show is, not only listeners who tune in, but those who visit the site and even download the recording after the fact. This will be another measuring stick for the upcoming release of Urban Terror. I am looking forward to the show, getting back behind the microphone and giving the community the latest news and note from Urban Terror.
