I knew at an early age that I wanted to make a career out of writing about games, and now I have. You'll find most of my stuff right here on HonestGamers, of course, but don't be surprised if my name pops up elsewhere. Living out my dream keeps me very busy, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
In my efforts to pretend that VideoCritics.net is a game in development, I am now announcing that the site is in 'beta' mode. Users can register, post on the forums, contribute content and browse the site, while staff members can approve content and moderate on the forums as necessary. There aren't many listings in the database and there likely won't be for awhile, but I encourage you all to head over to the site and to use it as you normally would. There's a forum where you can report any errors you encounter and the like. Activity will be minimal at this point because, although Google somehow picked up the site and has spidered pages, for the most part no one but this community knows that the site even exists. I'm hoping that you all can help me catch any of the biggest issues befor
I can imagine myself listening to it again a few times, at least. I look forward to it, even.
Yes, I picked it up at work this evening. There was only one copy left and I didn't want to be stuck ordering it later if I wanted to give it a listen. I've now purchased both studio albums that the store where I work carries. They have three copies of a "Greatest Hits" CD, but I've always been the sort that prefers to avoid those in favor of the more comprehensive full-album experience. Some of my favorite songs from bands I like never make it to radio and "Greatest Hits" collections, after all...
Well, I finally broke down and decided to try giving Radiohead a listen. The album that I chose was "In Rainbows" because it's their newest--and therefore represents the band's current sound and not some ideal that fans fell in love with but which is no longer true--and because I respect the experiment that they tried with its release.
Lewis has a brand new gig. He's not saying what, only that it's at a "brilliant" site and such, which leads me to guess Eurogamer or Rock, Scissors, Shotgun. In any event, it'll do well enough for him that he's hanging up his hat over at Resolution. He'll still be freelancing, so maybe someday that'll even mean more work here. I do hope to be able to pay freelancers in the future, after all. You can find his full post here:
I wouldn't describe myself as a grumpy person or anything, but today I definitely feel that I'm in a better mood than usual and I can't really explain it. I didn't get as much sleep as usual (my wife woke me up early this morning for reasons unknown), but that doesn't seem to have caused the issues that it normally would. The skies outside are overcast and walking outside means walking into a miserable wall of wind-driven moisture, but that hasn't bothered me, either.
Well, after more than 120 hours spent with the game, I've beaten Monster Hunter Tri and my guide has been submitted. It'll likely appear soon on a competitor's site and I'm very pleased about that, even as I start work on other guides. Hopefully, I'll produce a Monster Hunter Tri review soon for this site.
You have won a trip to paradise, but there is a catch: there's no Internet and you have to bring along three video games. You will be forced to play one or all of those games--the choice is yours--for eight hours of every day of the rest of your life. If you refuse, you will be shot and all of the beautiful women (and/or men), the spectacularly delicious sub sandwiches... it all goes away. What three games do you bring? Why aren't you playing one of those three games right now? Have you reviewed each of those three games yet on this site?
