Middle-Age Angst Gamers

I’ll just say it… If I hear another 24-44 year old gamer (ex-gamer) whines that s/he is less interested in games I’m going to vomit. Understand me it not that I think people of any age should be into games, should not be int...

 


Micro-Blog: Interview Transcripts

The Video Game video interview is great...except when they ages-out of circulation and becomes lost...then it is a tragedy. If there is one thing that I think video game media/journalism is getting wrong today it is that the...

I am very excited because I confronted the 'uber dragon' in Dragons Dogma last night. I had been playing on and off for what seems like months, but I finally had to push through to teh end because I liked the game so much t...

 


Monsters in the House

THUNDERCATS!!! Ho--noooo!

ThunderCats Writer Murdered? I just saw this story at Kotaku and it just made me sad. In short: Stephen Perry, who was a writer for 1980s cartoon ThunderCats, recently went missing. His van was found last Sunday. Inside it,...

 


Wait...Let me get this straight

Hideki Kamiya (Bayonetta creator) It looks like there's pornographic Bayonetta fan comics. That's bound to disturb fans of the game, and I can't imagine the creators of said manga have any love for the game. If I understan...

INTERVIEWER
Did you have much encouragement in writing, and if so, by whom?

MONKEY
Good Lord! I wish there was a funny story for this, something evoking Truman Capote, to tell you about my early writing. Sadly, I came only lately into writing and would likely be better known for drawing if there was any fairness in the world. I can very honestly say I never wrote a grammatical sentence, of more then six words, until I was twenty. Well, at least anything set to paper of on the first attempt. I am creative, but I've lacked the careful architect tools of a real writer who can build something great. I have the mind of a lunatic and that helps make for interesting ideas, but nearly ninety-nine percent of my writing process is correction and re-writing. Maybe, knowing enough to re-writing makes me a real writer, but it sure seems like more work when the whole process seems like carving toothpicks out of whole trees. The first story I ever wrote was in second grade about a one eyed monster that was cruel only because he needed eye-drops. My 2nd grade teacher's assistant thought it was very creative, and the was my first moment of pride in anything I wrote.

INTERVIEWER
Why should people read what you write here?

MONKEY
Facts are written by and for the sissy! Here in my blog, I deal in truth and leave factual reporting to the experts. I might not always spell all the words correctly and I cannot vouch for my mastery of the rules of grammar; However, I do try to say interesting things and I try to make it fun. That's my only promise: what you find here will be as fun, funny or irritatingly interesting. If you don't agree I give you back twice what you paid me to read it..
