And I’m not sure why. But look! Links to stuff I wrote on 1UP.
Our new editorial mandate for 2013 — something the staff arrived at mutually after considerable contemplation and debate — is to focus on experiential writing. Video games stand apart from other mediums because you take an active role in them, and that’s what we want to explore through our writing and videos. I guess I do a lot of that already, but now it’s all official and stuff.
So: Some thoughts on Etrian Odyssey IV and the series’ history; a recounting of my first six hours with the import version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf; and more of my continuing plight in Skyrim. Please read these articles! And, hopefully, enjoy them. I had a lot more fun writing these than anything I’ve put together in ages. It’s kind of liberating knowing that my habits are officially sanctioned. Just ’cause you’re the boss doesn’t mean you get to just do whatever you like, you know.
