What is Reimaru Files?
We are a site that is basically all about gaming; from news about the gaming industry, trends of the popular gaming peripherals up to the reviews of the newest games, we got everything covered to cater your gaming needs. And aside from video games, we also tackle on the latest tech gadgets, talking about the new mecha series or toys and covering some of the biggest tech & pop culture conventions from both local and international. Our goal is to enlighten and inform the community on the plus side of the geek culture through our content in both written and video format.
Originally created as a fan blog for the MMORPG Granado Espada last 2007. After moving on from the game, Reimaru Files began making features on PlayStation Portable games in 2008 as a pastime, and then expanded to different gaming consoles the year after. Then in 2011, it was finally launched as a bona fide gaming website that caters to all gamers and geeks alike.
The site was initially hosted on Blogspot, Google’s blog publishing platform. Realizing the need to establish a separate identity as a brand, Reimaru Files has now moved from Blogspot to a self-hosted server by Sakura Index Network, which has, in turn, followed through to become Cyne Creative. Reimaru Files is also founding partner of the Media Index Group, which aims to provide a wide spectrum of content across different topics, fandom, and media. As of 2017, Reimaru Files has updated to a new theme, complete with a new focus on content!
Since starting from a one-man team of writers, Reimaru Files is now composed of:
