Yeah, that’s about the summ of it. After a 10 year run, The Sinister Six has closed. There was a long discussion on what the team members really wanted to do. Frankly, to survive there would have to be changes. Layout changes, and a change in direction since nobody had the heart to write more S6 eps without Gary. Nobody really wanted to make changes either since it’d be just messing with what Gary did. Some of the members couldn’t bear to even look at the site anymore.
Rather than have the site die off slowly and silently with one memeber fading away after another, it was decided to wrap things up and officially announce site closure.
But, even though it’s closed, a nice goodbye was made by yours truly. Thanks to a find on an old computor I have all the old files I helped reformat for Ice in the past. I put them all in a S6 nostalgia section. It houses all sorts of goodies from the past including Sinister Six Survivor, the Tribute to Plantman, Paper Mario and a whole LOT more! These things haven’t been seen since their grand re-opening on Planet Megaman, when they first got off Geocities.
I’ve also written the final epilogue for the Sinister Six. Something to wrap up all of Ice’s loose ends to give the series the sendoff it deserves. Considering I’m the guy who sometimes finished Ice’s epilogues when he was stuck, I’m glad it’s me who gets to finish things off.
Rich also launches a Megaman 1 Walkthrough that he’s been working on for a while. It all looks great, so be sure to check it out.
Although it’s closed the Sinister Six will stay up as a tribute to our friend Gary “Iceman” Martin. It’s been a wild ride and it won’t be the same without ’em.
