Hello! So. I need to do a better job of posting here when I write stuff that appears places other than here. I’m going to try to do a weekly post linking the stuff I’ve written for other sites. This should catch you up to the present day.
For PC Gamer:
- I do a Mod of the Week column for PCG that usually runs on Sundays. This past week I did a write-up on a Star Trek Armada mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.You can also look at the Mod of the Week archive here. Recent mods include one that lets you use mouse controls with the old LucasArts adventure Grim Fandango, which is pretty neat and also almost twenty years overdue.
- Also for PC Gamer, I’m currently doing a multi-week diary about the survival crafting game Rust. You can read part one here, in which I vomit on a campfire until I die. Part two will be up this coming Wednesday! I don’t think it will contain vomiting because I learned how to cook.
For Rock, Paper Shotgun:
- I’ve started a new column on RPS in which I play a different early-access game each week, and write about my experiences. Not a review, just a diary. It’s called The Lighthouse Customer. I’ve written about my quest to hunt a chicken in indie crafting game Under the Ocean, and there’s also a column about trying to keep astronauts from dying horribly in Double Fine’s space station simulation Spacebase DF-9. New columns run on Monday evenings.
My DayZ Tumblr:
- Lately I’ve been keeping a tumblr describing my encounters with other players in the multiplayer survival game DayZ. The encounters can be weird, funny, disturbing, violent, or poignant, and frequently several of those at once. There’s no update schedule; I should probably have one. Right now, I write when I play, and I play when I have time.
