So it’s high time for a little overview of some of the various bits of writing I’ve been doing to get a wrap-up on here…
Since shortly after my last blog post (the January one that is) I’ve been writing a weekly piece for Melbourne-based web site, MMGN.com.au. I wish I could categorise it further, but it’s a fairly broad bunch of articles, ranging from justifiable hype to predictions for the PSP2. Here are a couple of my favourites so far:
Mushroom Wars – A devilishly clever PS3 game overlooked: http://ps3.mmgn.com/Articles/Overlooked-Mushroom-Wars
The demise of Guitar Hero – whence, how and whither: http://ps3.mmgn.com/Articles/Guitar-Hero-Has-Left-The-Build
In a drunken moment of weakness I agreed to make an article for Game Arena about the upcoming Mana Bar Melbourne into a bit of first person prose (I also, in that same moment of weakness, vaguely remember agreeing to make a web site dedicated to facial hair with Yug). In it, I discuss the bar and recall as best I can an inebriated conversation we all had about the definition of a games journalist and whether it applies to most people who write about games or not.
Also on Game Arena is a wrap-up of fan-made Sonic the Hedgehog games as a response to the lacklustre official Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1.
And finally, as tends to occasionally happen, I was a guest on the Game Arena Podcast talking about the next generation PSP.
Those of you in Australia can now also find my words reviewing films in Filmink magazine, Australia’s largest independent movie rag. So, you know, yay!
