Whoo boy, I’ve been slacking on posts. The busy seasion is firing up again, so I’ve neglected to update ye old workblog as often as I’d like. I’ll remedy that promptly. The October issue of Nintendo Power features a short Community piece I wrote about Kimberly Young’s far out Metroid batik. For a first try, it’s pretty incredible, and this groove-inspired wall hanging definitely fits the college dorm room decor vibe. That’s all I have in the October issue, but I should be ramping up my contributions in the near future.
Sadly, the November issue is the first in a long time that doesn’t have any Community pieces I’ve written in it, but I have more in the pipeline for future issues. Freelance comrade Andrew Hayward holds down the fort nicely with a write-up of some Nintendo-themed custom vinyl toys and a halloween themed piece. You can, however, find my review of Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals over on pg. 90. I was pleasantly surprised by that one, and I recommend it for action-RPG fans. I should have three different items appearing in the December 2010 issue, so stay tuned.
I decided to hit up the local mart the other day for a Long Trail Double Bag and ended up finding this as well. I’ve been doing some writing for EGM/EGMi for a few months now, but this is the first time I’ve had anything run in the print edition. The Oct. 2010 issue features two contributions. After an exciting last-minute green light deadline scramble, I put together a short news/feature piece on The Indie Fund that I’m quite happy with. Big thanks to the awesome indie devs behind the project for whipping up some good quotes and info on such short notice. That article appears on Pag 17. On Page 76 you’ll find my review of Limbo that ran in a previous digital edition of EGMi.
I just wrapped up a few pieces for EGMi and the next print edition, including a lengthy feature article and some reviews. I’ll post more about that once it’s out, as there’s some cool stuff to chat about there. Cheers!
