Club Penguin

It's not our usual fare, but we've at least paid nominal attention to Club Penguin through the years -- if not on the website, then in our personal lives. Magicman's kids played around on it, and I had to cover it for a magazine. I swear, I just played the minigames for research purposes ...

We won't be paying attention to it for much longer, though -- at least on PC. After nearly a dozen years, Disney is shutting down the free-to-play gaming site at midnight PDT tonight. But that ending is also the precursor to a new beginning -- namely, a new mobile game called Club Penguin Island.

It's always a little sad when a long-running game shuts down, even if it's something you may have outgrown years ago. If you're feeling nostalgic, check out the Club Penguin website and some of the game's memorials, posted by the staff members. Do you have any fond Club Penguin memories that you'd like to share?

Clubpenguin Island Sucks 5 years ago
Clubpenguin Island Sucks. I tried this game for a while and wanted to review it. But the original clubpenguin browser game was better. Clubpenguin Island feels like a downgraded version of the original clubpenguin game. If you want to play clubpenguin island you better have a credit card otherwise you better go find another game to play. But one thing I do hate is that I can't play clubpenguin island on my computer. I'd love to play it on my computer I hate that clubpenguin island is for mobile devices only.

After trying this game for a bit I wanted to review it. The game is horrible. It felt like a downgraded version of the browser version of Club Penguin. If you want to even have fun on Club Penguin Island be sure to have a credit card otherwise you better find another game to play.

I once became a moderator and I embraced 4chan by banning a bunch of random people that were around me. Good times.
