The rax graming blog was started to coincide with the transfer of therax gaming site to become part of the Computer and Video Games network which incorporates all of Future plc’s gaming magazines. The move brought some controversy, with many long standing members of the forum leaving due to the new forum’s cramped spacing, advertising and slow loading times. The introduction of a blog was seen as one of the redeeming features of the switch. The blog has since been regularly updated with contributions from many of the magazine’s staff. The topics discussed range from the controversy over violent video games, to the benefits of buying a PC over a console.
