I have never been directly involved with the creation or publication of any videogame. However, I have backed the following gaming-related Kickstarter campaigns:
Double Fine Adventure Dragged Away: A Night to Remember Gaymer X Spaceteam Admiral's Club Relaunch 'Sup, Holmes? Season 3 Thimbleweed Park Wasteland 2
I currently patronize one gaming-related Patreon:
And I previously supported another:
Phil and Spencer
I also follow (and am followed by) some indie game developers on Twitter, and am friends with a few on Facebook.
I am a videogame fan first and foremost, and as such I've been known to sing the praises of the games and developers I like from time to time. That said, I will always endeavor to disclose any relationship (however insignificant) I may have with the people involved with the creation of said game in the event that I write about them. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask!
As you may recall, we recently announced a few changes that directly affect you cblogging badasses. Many promises were made, someofwhich have already begun to be fulfilled, and more fruits of your labor will be seeing the front page soon! In addition -- while I don't have any announcements yet regarding the looooong-awaited upgrade to the cblogging software -- I DO have the distinct pleasure of (re)introducing you to my two newest team members!
First up is Conor Elsea, or, as you knew him previously, Jon Bloodspray. Conor will be taking over for Jesse "Tactix" Cortez on the Community Groups side of things and keeping a spotlight on the NARPs, as well as helping Hamza and the rest of our team organize parties for our official get-togethers (like the upcoming PAX East, for example). Additionally, he'll be helping me select blogs for promotion; best start kissing ass!
The second heir to the Boner Throne is Spencer Hayes, formerly CrimeMinister. You probably know Spencer from his time with the Dtoid Communicast and also as Hamza's Intern Bitch. Well good news; now he's MY bitch!
Spencer will be taking over as your Team Fortress 2sdays guru (starting tonight!) and also helping me ban the assbots and spamholes from your midst. I met Spencer at PAX once and he tried to hug me; it was gross!
And that's it! I for one am incredibly excited about the renewed energy flowing through the cblogs for the last couple weeks. Let's keep this fun train rolling!
