Brittany Vincent is an accomplished video game and freelance entertainment writer whose work has been featured in esteemed publications and online venues like G4TV.com, Joystiq, Complex, IGN, GamesRadar, Eurogamer, Kotaku, C&G Magazine, Gamezebo, GameSpot, and more. She’s been writing professionally for five years and enjoys combining her lifelong love of gaming and extensive video game knowledge with her passion for the written word.
She also enjoys writing for horror publications like Rue Morgue, Bloody Disgusting, and Dread Central. Over the past few years, she’s also worked with PR representatives to build relationships and obtain review products for her work, having managed her own gaming website and small teams to attend video game conventions such as PAX East in 2010 and E3 in 2011. In addition, she is now the community manager at Japanator.
When her bank account, eyes, and social life aren’t suffering from grueling hours of sweaty-palmed gaming and feverish scribbling, she may be found in the wild viewing anime or poring through manga, mingling in online forums, and working to hone her craft. Simple sleep or paralysis is not enough to catch her, though. No, a Master Ball may be in order. Until her dying breath she’ll be wielding a BFG made entirely of killer drive and ambition while stamping out stereotypes and passing on the frivolity of console wars. So, are you ready? Game on — no button mashing allowed.
It's Thursday night, and I'm sitting at the day job. Most of the staff will be living it up at PAX this weekend, possibly meeting up with some of you lovely people. But I'm going to be writing, working, and stayin' on that grind, know what I mean?
It's sort of an unwritten rule that living in Louisville, KY doesn't really afford me the same opportunities as my fellow writers across different publications, because everything's so far away. I'd love to be at the events you guys are hitting up, and maybe one day I will, but for now your adopting me and taking my avatar with you is the best I can do!
So, hey! Take me with you. Engage in heated conversations about Bayonetta with my digital likeness at your side. Discuss the desert rock music scene and giggle with devilish glee while you do so. Most of all, think of me while you're having kinky BDSM sex.
Because, I love you. And I hope that even though I haven't been around here very long, you might start to love me too, in the very special way two adults do in the morning before work and after awkwardly cutting out of a boring party. Or maybe in the way a married couple does before kids come along. Or violently, like you love nasty, tantric, unprotected fucking and weeaboo bullshit (like me.)
You've even got a few different options!
Adopt my awesome Mikey avatar!
Adopt an awkward photo of me!
Continue the trend and adopt a photo where no one has to see my face and keep it anon!
Hell, take my Destructoid card.
If you choose to take me with you, I'll do you the same favor at the next event I attend, with all my love.
I've got to get back to populating Dtoid with reviews that you've been waiting for, but just keep this in mind: I really, really like it. Let me show you. Baby, this is how we do. Go shawty. The way we flow is oshare. You better watch yourself.
