PlayStation: The Official Magazine Reviews and more

ptomdec09The Dec. issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine just hit the newsstands (a bit early), and it features three reviews I  recently penned. I tackled Demon’s Souls, Half-Minute Hero, and Obscure: The Aftermath. They’re the first pieces I’ve written for the magazine but certainly not the last, since I have several others already slated for upcoming issues. I typically do a ton of online writing, which I enjoy, but seeing my work in a glossy print mag is indescribably exciting. In other news, interviews and research for the geek music book project are going smoothly. There’s a lot still to tackle, though I’m pleased to be making steady progress. I have some exciting new gigs that are in the process of panning out, and some additional print work on the way, including a review and multiple community pieces for Nintendo Power. It’s been a busy and awesome year so far. Let’s hope it keeps up. Cheers!

Half-Minute Hero – Hands-On Preview

If that seems way too long, you’ll greatly appreciate Half-Minute Hero’s warp-speed take on the classic RPG. It boils down the typical trappings of the genre into their primordial elements and douses the whole thing with rocket fuel. You’ve got 30 seconds to save the world – try not to freak out.”
