Games Writing 101: Intro to Weird Lifestyle Choices

Hello, and welcome to my blog! You can call me MonsterSprite I guess…? No that’s dumb, just call me Jack. That is my name and the first thing I was ever given I guess. Now that I’ve awkwardly introduced myself, here’s some more interesting things about me:

I’m a nostalgic person, some of my earliest memories were playing Pokémon on the Game Boy, where I would gather and train all sorts of two-dimensional monsters and pit them against other two-dimensional pocket monsters, hence the name MonsterSprite for this blog. I also really dig anything that can be be visually provocative or provide a profound, insightful experience which is why I love and play video games so much.

So that’s what I’ve dedicated myself to writing about here on this blog. You can expect weekly reviews every Friday, I’ve only started writing my opinions on games recently so they might be a bit wonky so apologies for any weirdness. The games covered will be a mixture of recent releases like Grow Up which came out this month and slightly older games that I only just got around to playing such as Gone Home on PS4. I’ll try and cover a broad range of different types of games from various genres as possible, from large AAA titles to smaller indie creations. Or anything interesting that strikes my fancy.

Besides that, it’s up in the air really. I haven’t fully decided what else I’ll be doing here and there’s still a lot of things I’m trying to get my head around such as getting to grips with WordPress, video editing software (I’m hoping to get some videos on here as well) and a million other software things. But I’m having fun in the meantime when I’m not working or being lazy, which is about 95% of my time spent on this planet.

When I’m not rambling about whatever games I’m currently playing, you can find me on Twitter by clicking the links at either the side of the page or at the bottom. Right now I’m not entirely certain about what the best way of contacting people could be or whether I should set up some email just for the site but I guess I’ll figure it all out when it’s up and running for a while.

Oh, and I have a dog, Polly, but I’m not sure there’s a place for any sort of cute animals on the internet.
