In keeping with the trend of I have of doing entirely too many things on the off-chance that one of them might eventually lead to one of the lives I want to live, I started a new project earlier this year. Coupling the knowledge that came from being involved with gaming communities in my twenties, writing communities later (including NaNoWriMo, this blog, writing groups and more), and also writing spatterings of my own facile attempts at game journalism, I started a game blog of my own.
Reading Penny Arcade was just something that was done as someone who loved videogames, and though I had never gotten involved with tabletop, wargaming or various nerdy (and I use that term lovingly) card games, there was a great deal of representation for my preferred gaming poison.
I love games. Console, PC, what-have-you. I’ll even go in for the shitty portable game apps at times (though yeah, there’s some great ones too). As a hobby, it’s sat side-by-side with my writing for many years, and as you’ve probably seen from previous posts (unless you’re brand new here), I’ve been influenced by games to a great degree.
