First of all, a huge thank-you to everyone who’s been talking up (and buying up) our new publication. GameSpite Quarterly 3 is far and away the fastest-selling issue of this venture to date. I mean, we’re certainly not going to retire on our earnings, but I’m pretty sure that we’ve already hit my primary sales goal (namely, everyone whose work is included in this volume should be able to buy themselves a copy for posterity with their earnings). No telling if this enthusiasm will hold up for the long term; it could very well be that we simply happened to glom onto the so-called Cyber Monday buying frenzy and that’s that. But I’m really hoping that it means GameSpite is slowly and steadily building an enthusiastic reader base who sincerely enjoys what we’re producing here and shares our love for old-fashioned media. Print is pretty rad! And I’m glad you (apparently) think so as well.
I haven’t entirely settled on a format for posting GSQ3 material online yet, since these are more akin to bite-sized nuggets of content as opposed to full-length articles. So, I’ve posted three entries all at once — about a normal article’s worth of words, except spread across several pages. (Don’t worry, it’s not a foul scheme to increase clickthroughs. You see any ads around here? ‘Cause I sure don’t.) Today’s postings include:
- Adol Christin (Ys Book I & II) by Andrew Bentley;
- Lord British (Ultima series) by newcomer Aaron Littleton; and
- Rad Spencer (Bionic Commando) by… me.
Further updates to come in the months ahead, naturally.
