This is the YouTube network's second purchase since January, when it bought app developer Supernova.

Fullscreen has acquired video game website ScrewAttack for an undisclosed price, the companies announced Friday morning. 

The Culver City YouTube network, which is headed by George Strompolos, has been on a buying spree of late, scooping up app developer Supernova in January. 

With ScrewAttack, Fullscreen acquires a website with video game-centric news, trailers and original content. The Dallas-based company also hosts an annual gaming convention and operates a YouTube channel with more than 840,000 subscribers that generates more than five million monthly views.

"As a leading video game community, ScrewAttack will provide a beachhead for our creator network and support our ongoing programming strategy in gaming", said Fullscreen talent head Larry Shapiro.
 
ScrewAttack will remain in Dallas and will continue to focus on growing its video game brand.
 
Said ScrewAttack founder Craig Skistimas, "Together with Fullscreen, we can amplify our efforts and interact with an even larger part of the gaming community to feature content that excites, pleases and entertains."
