EGM Nov. 2010 IssuePrint Contributions

In addition to doing some regular review work in EGMi, I’ve been writing news features for the print edition of EGM lately. This month’s issue has a massive two-page feature spread titled “Through The Lens” that I’m pretty psyched about. Located on pages 12 and 13, the piece focuses on a handful of interesting independent film makers that have created or  are working on documentaries chronicling various aspects of gaming-related culture. The main piece focuses on 2 Player Productions (Reformat The Planet, Penny Arcade: The Series), the nice folks working on Indie Game: The Movie, Dan Lamoureux’s Nerdcore for Life, and the collective project that put together The Demoscene Documentary. There’s also a nod to Get Lamp, for text adventure gaming fans. Unfortunately, space limitations left a cool side-bar I wrote up (sorry Scott S.) on the cutting room floor, but that might see the light of day eventually in a separate piece.

This was a pretty busy issue all around. Beyond the feature, you can find my review write-up of And Yet It Moves (WiiWare) on pg. 76, and my second opinion to Bryan Stratton’s R.U.S.E. review is over on  pg. 75. I have a few pieces headed for the next issue as well as some other stuff I’m working on for the digital edition. Awesome. Over and out.

Review: And Yet It Moves (Wii)

I’m not entirely sure how, but I actually missed AYIM the first time around on PC. While I endeavor to consume and appreciate as many indie titles as humanly possible, there’s just too many to catch them all. But after spending a lot of time digging through the new Wii version and comparing it to the PC original, the improvements afforded by the Wii remote’s tilt controls are pretty apparent. You can catch my full, multi-page review of AYIM on WiiWare in the latest issue of EGMi here. I have a few other upcoming reviews and other articles set to appear in both EGM and EGMi in the coming weeks/months. Stay tuned!
