New York, New York - June 27, 2010 - DualShockers today announced that its one year anniversary party will be taking place on July 17, 2010, beginning at 9:30PM at Off The Wagon on 109 MacDougal Street, New York. The event is to celebrate the success of the gaming media website that was started by Yaris Gutierrez and Joel Taveras. The website was set out to break away from the uniformity of what gaming journalism has become, and has come a long way since its humble beginnings.
The event is also to celebrate with all the readers, friends and partners who have all had a hand in getting DualShockers to where it is today. Co-founder Joel Taveras says, "It has been an incredible first year and the site has experienced amazing growth in that short time. We want everyone who has supported us during that time- friends, family and peers to help us celebrate be because we couldn't have don't it without any of you."

DualShockers is the brainchild of two passionate gaming journalists from New York City, Yaris Gutierrez and Joel Taveras. The name does not represent any allegiance to a particular video game console (or its controller), the name was chosen because it describes what we aim to do: shock the video game journalism industry. The mainstream gaming media as a whole has become bland, predictable, and full of profit driven bias. Smaller sites (the heart and soul of the industry) are becoming polluted with flamebait, rumors, and fanboyism. We don’t want to be part of either. At this site you will only read real gamer news, real gamer reviews and real gamer editorials. All of which will be garnished with some good ol’ New York City attitude. Prepare to be shocked, ladies and gentlemen.
