The Gamer Dialect and Some Minor Updates

July 3rd, 2009

A few days ago my latest column ‘Mapping The Gamer Dialect’ went up on GameSetWatch, I can’t imagine that it was terribly popular as I rambled on about the language of the video gaming populace. I’m rather chuffed with it though – nice relevant opener, comprehensive enough to form a basic skeleton of gamer talk and mostly well substantiated. So please take a read.

In the past week or so I’ve finished reading both of the GameSpite books (Year One, Volume One and GS Quarterly Spring 2009) which I thoroughly enjoyed – the best games writing you’ll find anywhere. I’m looking forward to rounding out some rather comprehensive thoughts on the massive Zelda Twilight Princess and possibly squeeze in something out on Super Stardust HD which was out this week on the Playstation Store for $3.50. Good news too, I’ve mostly finished the purchasing side of my gaming backlog, minus a handful of imports and rarities. That’s all the minor updates for now.
