Over the past week or so, I’ve been in contact with the good people over at Pixels or Death and am happy to confirm that, once their new site is up, I will writing for them on a regular basis.
I have a feeling this will work out nicely. For one thing, from what I’ve seen of their previous output, my tone/style is a good match for them. Another, I’ll be working to deadlines and won’t say silly things like “It’ll be up tomorrow” when I mean eventually*.
Naturally I’m still intending on posting here as well. Just expect to see a few more links from now, mmkay?
*Seriously though, Braid piece. Soon(ish).
I struggle to understand how the whole world can take the Olympic Games so seriously - emphasis on games - and yet there is virtually no attention paid to computer gaming competitions, despite the fact that it is one of the biggest industries worldwide.
In terms of being a spectator, they’re effectively the same thing, right? Watching people display their skill at something they’ve trained in.
Where does this disparity come from? Is it purely an age thing? Is it that a lot of games are merely simulations? Or that we can’t guarantee consistent quality in item performance (i.e., buggy games, consoles crashing, etc.)?
Seriously, someone explain this to me. I just don’t understand.
Did I say tomorrow for that Braid piece? I clearly meant ‘when it gets done’.
In all seriousness, apologies for the lack of…anything. I’ve sort of been dealing with some personal issues - namely unemployment, bills, and an increase in my medication (hear that, employers? I take pills! I’m not a liability in the slightest!).
Whilst my situation hasn’t exactly changed at all, I did want to make it known that I am still writing - albeit slowly and inbetween bites of sugary baked goods - and fully intend to make more of an effort for the good community of tumblr.
