Shout out to Press2Reset

Ok!

So I’ve been writing for Press2Reset for a while now. My first journey into news writing so I’ve been pretty stoked to be a part of it!

This past week I covered a few things, but the one I’m going to mention is that Remedy has stated their ‘admiration’ for Skyrim and Skyrim’s story-driven success. Admiration is great, but I feel that so many companies have been bringing Skyrim up like this. Dragon Age, in another P2R article, cited how they’re watching Skyrim for inspiration in their next game and it goes on like that. Be your own game company for frack sakes.

It’s hard enough living in a life of sequels, now all the games are going to morph into one cluster-conglomerate-blegh? I digress.

Remedy has been doing just fine; they’re 0wn story-heavy games should be inspiration for how a good plot can make a title.

Why does Bethesda do so well? Because for the most part they seem to create their own ideas and ride them straight to hell if need be.

Update 1

Alright!

I’m sorting out my business on here and think I’ve got a system.

Mondays I will be doing a shout out to Press2Reset, and go over what I’ve covered over their all week, as well as the other awesome stuff they got going on!

I’ve also got my other blog almost done. It will be full of my story writing and that aspect of my brain. Mostly Fantasy, Sci-fi type stuff but also some non-otherworldy short stories. I’ll link when I get some content on there as it’s kinda empty right now, heh.

I’ll be trying to organise some of the stuff on here a little more as I know I’m moments away from falling into complete post anarchy!

Off I go!

JK Rowling is coming out with a new book? My Honest Thoughts on the Matter.

So, I keep hearing rumors about this and just today found out, through The Washington Post, that yes, Rowling is at it again. However, it doesn’t seem likely that we’re ever to see the Potterific world we’ve all grown up in (which is probably a good thing–always the fear of the rise of another Lucas) but most fans, and myself, have been positive about this.

“Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will  be very different to the Harry Potter series, which has been published  so brilliantly by Bloomsbury and my other publishers around the world,”  Rowling said in a statement.  “The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success  has brought me, and with that new territory it seemed a logical  progression to have a new publisher. I am delighted to have a second  publishing home in Little, Brown, and a publishing team that will be a  great partner in this new phase of my writing life.”

Little, Brown….that is where my dreams for more brilliant Rowling came crashing down. Little Brown is responsible for the tween girl maniacs and sparkly vampire myths that surround….Twilight……. I’ll hold out all the hope I can but anything related to Twilight can’t be trusted….those are my honest thoughts on the matter.

Oh yes, no real details have been released on the new book as Rowling’s PR has that under strict lock’n Key, however, her neighbour, author Ian Rankin, tweeted this Thursday,

“Wouldn’t it  be funny if J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults turned out to be a  crime story set in Edinburgh?” Rankin wrote. “My word yes.”

A mystery novel wouldn’t be the first assumption someone has made about what Rowling might do next. Whatever the case, she does intend to stay away from childrens literature and expand on a more adult audience.

Also, my fan senses tingle at the fact they’re making all 7 of the Harry Potter books into illustrated epics.

Call me Skye! :D

So this is my new Blog!

I haven’t blogged before but I’ll give it a go and see what happens. This will prob just be full of non-sensical ramblings but fear not! My life can be entertaining!

I have two cats for instance, and the internet has proven how wily they can be.

Overall I like many many things and will talk about many many things!

Enjoy!!
