Game Journalism Internship!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 29, 2013, 11:40 PM
  • Listening to: Nanook
  • Watching: PewDiePie montages

Yesterday I landed an internship with The Australia times to write game reviews, interviews, and my own personal analysis of the gaming [and cosplay] community.
Which brings me to ask you guys what you'd like to see... What do you like reading about? Is there anything that hasn't been properly covered yet? Is there something you're dying to see?
Please let me know!

Wow, congratulations! That sounds like a lot of fun! As far as ideas go, I'd say give unbiased reviews, and give good reasons why you rate something the way you did. When I read a review, I like to see unbiased ones that give out ratings on all aspects of the game/the subject. And oftentimes, reading the reviews help me to determine whether or not I want to get the game being reviewed.

Oh congrats!! I'd like to see more stuff covered around that of the life of Game Designers seeing as how i'd like to be 1 myself 1 day it'll be rather cool to get more deeper insights as to what goes on behind the scenes of creating games (time constraints, challenges, etc)!!

Personally I think you should write your own story where it began, where it has taken you, who you met that helped you or even pushed you to work harder. What were your low points and what did you do to get out of them. Being honest about how much hard work goes in to and the exciting future that is to come for cosplay. Congrats and all the best beautiful.

I think one thing that we could do with more of, is someone who tries to draw attention to the more positive aspects of the community.

I do get fed up reading stories about how games made this person crazy and the like. Maybe you could write about the enjoyment people get from the community? :)

Wow. That's awesome and best of luck to you! Love to follow more of your work. Can't help in the idea department. I did a bit of that kinda work as well a few years ago so I love seeing you on it. XD

How the rest of the world can learn from games--and how games can learn from other media.  AKA go to and see if they give you any ideas =)

Wow, congrats!

Wow am I jelly! And congrats! I think you should just try to be as passionate as you can, but try to keep the jargon to a minimum in order to get people interested and not lost. The cosplay community doesn't get covered in the media very often (apart from being pointed out as some amusing side show), so stories about the hard work people put in for their costumes would be great to see.

This is an interesting question. I think the best thing would be to approach it from your personality. Someone like Jim Sterling takes things to a very loud "This is how I think and fuck anyone that disagrees", then you have someone like Adam Sessler, who's more rational and uses his vocabulary and inside to be the "every-man". It might be a non-answer, but just cover what you're passionate about, or related to you so it doesn't feel forced or like a gimmick.
