I'm some guy.
...and I've never even played a lick of Starcraft.
Well, I've made the big move, and I'm now living in Gwangju, South Korea. Ironically, I've never played Starcraft or League of Legends. The latter, if the Fedex guy I talked to about it while still in America is to be believed, held its world championship in Seoul in 2014.
Getting ready for a new life, getting back into an old hobby
I'm still working on my previously mentioned Hamlet project, but I've been distracted by getting ready for a new job I just signed a contract for and preparing to move...tiring stuff. I've also put my Tomb Raider series reviews on hold for a while.
However, I've still found the time to fart around the Internet. Yay!
On Valentine's Day, I was interviewed on NicheGamer.net.
For a while now, I've been working on a project. It isn't quite a game, but it's in that wheelhouse. A friend and I are developing Shakespeare's Hamlet, presented in the style of a JRPG. It came to us that this could be a useful educational tool, since it would show the annotated text along with a visual representation, all advancing at the user's discretion.
Thank you, Jason Venter.
Well, my time at HG has come to an end (as staff, anyway) and I wanted to comment on my experience here.
In October 2013 I returned to school to finish my Bachelor's degree. I thought for sure I could do it in roughly a year, based on the classes that I had to take, but I had one big worry: the degree I was after required a six month internship.
I looked around for a while, and could find nothing of interest. Then I noticed that my university was offering an internship for a very small music news website. Well, hey, I had just taken an interest in a web site that seemed bigger than that one, and a place where what little I had already contributed had been well received! I decided to contact Jason.
Some notes about the different versions...
I just reviewed the PS3 version of Hoard, and I wanted to use this space to note the differences between that version and the PSP and Steam versions.
First, the PSP version. Unfortunately, it was released years before cross buy was a thing, so you'll have to pay full price for the title even if you already own the console version. Also, there is no multiplayer support whatsoever, so a major element of the game is missing. Additionally, I experienced multiple save file corruptions that lost my progress through the challenges. That isn't really a huge deal, the challenges can be tackled in any order and don't unlock anything.
