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!
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?
I haven't had time to play Just Cause 2 yet and it's possible that I never will, but my brother-in-law bought a copy for Xbox 360 and sometimes I watch him play it while I'm getting other things done (like meaningless blog posts). Here is one such blog post.
So I was busy registering a domain tonight. videocritics.net to be precise. There's nothing there worth seeing just yet, but maybe someday there will be with your help. Just thought I'd let you all know that the idea of the video site hasn't stalled. It's just progressing very slowly. I'll be sure to update you when more interesting things happen with it, assuming that they ever do. That won't be for at least a few weeks, though, most likely. Business with other things ensues.
Besides "Animal" by Ke$ha, I have also purchased:
Everybody (Ingrid Michaelson)
New Maps of Hell (Bad Religion)
When the World Comes Down (The All-American Rejects)
Red Album (Weezer)
Hellbilly Deluxe 2 (Rob Zombie)
I like music and birthday money gave me the chance to expand my collection, unlike last year where I spent birthday money on bills. I was dtermined not to do that this year.
Anyway, it makes sense to add to my collection while I still can somewhat conveniently. There are more albums that I'd like to purchase and hopefully will soon...
