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.
Hey there, space cats! Welcome to Brittany's Swingin' Report Show! You may have seen my tentacles slithering into the various crevices of Destructoid, spreading creep and spawning Overlords to do my bidding, but mainly writing some news and whatnot here and there. I figured it was my royal duty as Queen to make a formal introduction, especially given my increased visibility around these parts.
My name's Brittany. You can call me Molotov Cupcake, or Queen Bee. It's possible you may remember me as Rampancy from back in my early Dtoid days, but if not then I've just given you the go-ahead to forever hound me about my blatant Marathon/Halo obsession back in 2009. I lied, that wasn't just in 2009. I still dig Marathon: Durandal. My portfolio's called Pfhor the Win. I ain't cool.
I'm actually not new to the Destructoid family, as I'm the community manager over at Japanator. Lots of fine folks over there and you should be coming over and hanging out, especially if you like Chinese cartoons. Tim, Josh, Karen, L.B., Elliot, and the rest of the crew bust their butts to make it an awesome place to work, and I'm over there too, so come say hi! Every month I choose a winner from the c-blogs to win some animu, and I know you guys like free stuff. So best get your butts over there and get writin'.
You probably have a pretty good feel of what I'm like from my news, but THIS JUST IN: I'm so zetta diverse. I like pleasure spiked with pain, and my favorite Bjork song is "Aeroplane." I'm into Carlo Von Sexron and David Lynch. Video games, anime, and horror are my greatest passions. I also have a lot of tattoos, like the Godhand brand from Berserk, Purple Tentacle, Lammy, a moogle, and the Mass Effect renegade star.
I also write about games. Like, a lot. You may have seen me around IGN, Kotaku, GameSpot, GamesRadar, Joystiq, Complex, G4, Kill Screen, or one of several other outlets where I do my best to assimilate the video game media so that I might become Locutus of the industry. And now I'm in your base, makin' it so with all your dudes.
I hope this is the beginning of a filthy/gorgeous friendship, and look forward to bringing you vidya game information in some capacity. In the meantime, feel free to harass me, as I will always be ready with a witty retort and a sarcastic remark.
