I can’t believe it’s already April.
2015 has been flying by already. It’s been a pretty good year so far, all things considered, but there are some big things I would like to happen before it gets too late into 2015.
Looking at my calendar, I think April will be a busy month. Busy, but fun. As I fill out my weekly writing plans, I figure I will share some of them here so you all can have some things to look forward to. Or things to not look forward to.
Deadly Premonition Retrospective:
On April 30th, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut turns 2 years old. If you didn’t know, DP is one of my favorite games of all time. I plan on playing through the game again this month with the ultimate goal of publishing an in-depth retrospective type piece. There’s been a lot said about Deadly Premonition in the past, but plenty more that I think needs to be discussed. Plus, it’s a great excuse to return to Greenvale again…
I started playing the PC port of Psychonauts recently. It’s another one of my favorite games and I want to write about it. Raz and company represent one of gaming’s most interesting casts and I think there is a great feature in there somewhere. Also, Psychonauts is a REALLY weird word to spell.
Most, if not all, of the video stuff I have planned will be for Entertainment Buddha. There are a couple of games that I have been capturing footage of and I think that they could make for some (hopefully) funny videos.
Also, I am pretty sure I will be able to beat the current Axiom Verge ‘speedrun’ times that a lot of well-known writers are touting, so I’ll do that just for the ego boost.
Of course, a lot of my time will be dedicated to working on pitching to different outlets. I didn’t have any success in March with freelance work, but I’m not too stressed over it. Being a relative unknown in the games world means that people are less likely to give me the time of day for now. Part of the process.
Anyway, that’s the gist of my plans for the month as of today. As more things come up, I will edit this post in the interest of keeping everyone on the same page.
