So hey folks! It seems that interview with Mr. Jerauld was extremely popular! I’m glad so many people liked it, and it makes me all the more excited to pursue further interviews of other interesting gaming figures for this site.
The only problem is that the interview was so popular that I’ve now used 75% of this month’s bandwidth for the site within the last few days. Eep! Looks like I’ll have to upgrade the hosting plan much sooner than I expected. While site growth is a good thing, it does require a substantial amount of time and effort to create the articles you see on here. Not to mention the costs involved with hosting and upkeep. So if you like what I’m doing and want to support more unique, independent game writing from me, please do consider contributing via Paypal or supporting our Patreon. Every little bit helps a lot!
Besides that, things are going well: My next feature-review-type-thing, a look at Namco’s Libble Rabble, is coming along nicely, and I got a fantastic new book to review over the weekend. Everything I mentioned in the previous newspost is still in the works in varying states of completion. It’s pretty common of me to have numerous ideas for things to write about at once, it’s just a matter of what I feel compelled to write about most at that time. (For example: I’m still doing the Terra Battle review, I just hit a bit of a block with it and want to spend more time with the game itself before I come back to it.)
What else has been going on? Well, I’ve been making the podcast rounds a fair bit. I was on the TinyCartridge TinyCast to talk about subjects as varied as Amiibos, Rodea the Sky Soldier, Sega 3D Classics, and of course, this site. (also: Soap shoes.) Later this week, I’ll be joining the Anime News Network ANNCast for an overview of the year in gaming. Set your podcast apps in those directions and have a listen!
Other professional freelance writing stuff I’ve done recently: I wrote a Tales of Hearts R review for GameSpot that should be going up any day now. If you live in Australia, I wrote about Puzzle and Dragons for the HYPER magazine mobile gaming special, too.
So yes, we’re definitely keeping busy here! We’ve had a great first month of existence, and I’m glad you’ve come along for the ride. Here’s to many more months of gaming.moe!
