Burying the Lede

Burying the Lede is a (hopefully) daily collection of interesting, mostly game-journalism-related links I’ve come across that don’t require a full post but that I still wanted to share. I know other journalists (and even outlet mascots) have been in games before, and it hasn’t been the end of the world, but this kind of […]

Maybe “weekly (hopefully)” would have been more accurate? Well lookie who has the sixth biggest magazine in America. Circulation has more than doubled since 2005, when it was 26th. Amazing what prominent placement in 5,000 game stores can do. As a briefly-visiting Yank, I feel unqualified to comment on the British Game Media Award nominations. […]

Emphasis on the “(hopefully)” Rock Paper Shotgun saw fit to take down this review of the Official WoW Magazine (explanation for why here), but I still found it interesting. So will you, perhaps? I’ll have more on Game Theory soon, I hope, but for now just read their generalize take on what game journalism can do better. I […]

I’m so pissed I missed the screening text adventure documentary GET LAMP at PAX East, but luckily now I can buy it. And so can you! I don’t know if it’s a good sign or a bad sign for games’ widespread acceptance that WCG Ultimate Gamer is starting a second season on SyFy soon. But it’s […]

Dumping out my bookmarks folder before heading off to a weekend in York. I’m mentioned briefly in this four–part series on the state of game journalism, written by a guy just getting into the business. He seems very eager to learn, and also very perceptive. Rare responds to the MundoRare fansite closing (mentioned here) with […]

Whoops, forgot to post this yesterday. Here’s an extra-long edition to make up for it. IGN takes a page from Giant Bomb’s playbook — and it’s a pretty smart page to take! Destructoid’s Nick Chester discusses why our job inevitably leads to owning a ton of night shirts that you can never wear in public. Presenting […]

While I wasn’t looking, Kill Screen magazine went ahead and printed their second issue, which they maddeningly call “Issue 1.” If you can resist it after reading the excerpts, I do not want to be your friend anymore. I never got to read the British PC Zone magazine before it got shuttered earlier this month, […]

Three weeks worth of links to catch up on, so these will be a little longer than normal for a while. Freelancer extraordinaire Chris […]

What a video game blog would have looked like in 1992. Along the same lines, one blogger is recapping classic game mags from a modern perspective. Looks […]

Burying the Lede is a (hopefully) daily collection of interesting game-journalism-related links I’ve come across that don’t require a full post but that I still wanted to share. I suppose I should be humbled and impressed by this well worded and carefully reconsidered opinion but part of me just feel like screaming “WE WIN WE […]
