Better over time...

This is my first time blogging. I hope to fill this space with interesting analysis of trends in the videogame world, as well as a review now and then. It's more for me; as an outlet for the ideas I have, than to try and really create anything incredibly unique.

However, one thing that is missing from a lot of online (and print, for that matter) videogame journalism is research. That Metroid Prime 2: Echoes is going to have a multiplayer mode is reported as shocking news months after Miyamoto indicated as much in an interview; that Nintendo doesn't come through at E3 is treated as a surprise despite a history of overpromising. A lot of information can be culled and pieced together from the various online and print sources and I think I can do that well.

I do think that most videogame journalists do an admirable job, I'm not an IGN hater, for example. But that doesn't mean I'm not willing to see if I can add something worthwhile.
