Remember me?

This post ©2013 Capcom

I was out traveling all of last week and didn’t have time to do any blogging — well, that’s not quite true. I wrote a pretty lengthy piece on the current ugliness in games that’s been going on, but I don’t really have the stomach to get involved in all that awfulness. Instead, please enjoy the video above, wherein I praise a 25-year-old pinball game. Hard-hitting games journalism, that’s what I’m all about.

OK, OK; despite my self-effacement, I had a bunch of great developer interviews at PAX this weekend to cap off my trip: Hironobu Sakaguchi, Hajime Tabata, the Dragon Quest guys, Keiji Inafune… hopefully I’ll have time to transcribe them this week. Please look forward to it.

Also, last week, Jaz Rignall spearheaded a pretty much amazing comprehensive history of video games for USgamer that you really ought to read. We’re moving into fall release season and won’t be dwelling much on history for the coming months, so please enjoy this last hoorah for the past.

  1. I would have liked to read your thoughts on “the current ugliness,” but I respect your decision not to publish it. There’s something to be said for keeping your head down. On the other hand, in some of the darker places of the internet they’re going after pretty much any gaming journalist who supports Zoe Quinn or Jenn Frank on Patreon. So it might come back to you whether your like it or not. Please double authenticate all your stuff, if you haven’t already.

    Thanks for all the cool stuff you do, and I’m sorry you have to put up with this garbage.

    • I may still publish that post, because it did have to do with whom I support on Patreon, and why. I’ve seen some pretty weird remarks on that front — for instance, someone was trying to connect dots and decided I look like someone who’s a community manager at Ubisoft. The implication, I guess, is that USgamer is actually a front for Ubisoft?

      • That’s a bit more weird than a post I saw today on the kerfuffle, which, while listing a bunch of Quinn’s supposed backers in the journalism industry, described you as the “editor-in-chief of Gamespite.” And while that’s TECHNICALLY true….

      • Well, this site, with its 1000-2000 daily uniques, really is the single most influential website on the Internet. I can understand their concern.
