New Blogging Site - I'm Famous!

Regular readers of this blog know that I'm an avid gamer. I'm also looking for an avenue to write about games. Since most of you actually aren't gamers, the posts that I did here about games went over like a hot babe at a Gay Men's convention: total indifference.

I've been writing over at Game Informer, but the (admittedly, extremely remote) possibility of getting free games to review has made me cast my net out a bit wider. I even set up my own video game blog.

Of course, I wasn't writing enough to keep that alive, so I jumped at the possible opportunity to write for somebody else's blog.

The first one didn't pan out.

However, there's a new site that's trying to get going, and they're looking for new writers. It's called Video Game Fever, and Ronald, one of the main guys behind it (there are two, I believe) contacted me about the possibility of writing for them. After some great back and forth conversation where we hashed out what we both wanted to get out of it, I'm now writing some stuff for them. Mainly reviews, as it is also a news site, and I don't think I can keep up with the news. I may write some opinion pieces too. We'll see.

Anyway, my first post went up last night!

It's a review of the new game, L.A. Noire. An awesome, but flawed game about crime in Los Angeles in 1947.

(Thanks to GamerNode)

I'll keep posting here when something goes up, until/unless it becomes frequent enough that it would get really annoying.

Annoying readers: BAD THING. I try not to do that.

Check it out and let me know what you think.


  1. Congrats, that's awesome! Are you getting paid, or just free games? Just curious

  2. Nothing yet. They didn't hold out the hope of free games either, but you never know. If the site becomes big enough, it might happen.

    Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  3. Hey, at least you are getting your name out there and making connections. Yes, the ultimate goal of a writer is to get paid for it, but it isn't like you need to write to support yourself. And once your name is out there, then maybe it will lead to a paycheck. Or free games, which would be like a paycheck to you.

  4. Thanks, Knotty!

    Karen, that is the main reason I'm doing this. And I like the fact that there's no pressure. I can't go forever without posting, of course, but it's not the "day in, day out" kind of blogging that some sites would want.

    Free games would be even more worth it than a paycheck, unless it's a Canadian site.

    Stupid taxes. :)

  5. I wrote you first but somehow it didn't get printed. Congratulations. I'm so proud of you. You'll blow them away with your writing & they will have to pay you. We'll get more details when you come HOME. Keep up the good work.LOVE YOU

  6. All I know is your writing is awesome...where ever you may put the inspiration...nothing ventured nothing gained...kick butt as they say!

    Congrats and have fun...isn't that what this is all about....

  7. Mom, I don't know if I would go *that* far, but thank you for the support. :)

    Raven, thank you for the compliment! That is what this is all about (having fun, not compliments...that would be conceited :))
