So! We’ve just launched a new blog at 1UP. My plan is to kick off a new one every other week until…well, probably until I keel over and die. I have high hopes for this one, though; while Retronauts is definitely my baby, I really like the concept of an all-inclusive RPG site that doesn’t limit itself to just Japanese or MMO or PC or tabletop RPGs. The boundaries between all the different formats of RPGs have grown thinner through the years to the point where the better class of role-playing game incorporates the best of all styles. (Certainly that’s what the team behind The Last Remnant was shooting for, even if they didn’t quite pull it off.) My ultimate goal with The Grind is to bring all these different expressions of the RPG genre together and highlight their similarities and connections. A noble goal, eh? Here’s hoping it works out.
Speaking of Retronauts, new podcast.
