Print Screen

March 27th, 2008 by Troy Goodfellow · 4 Comments · Crispy Gamer, Print Screen

My new column for Crispy Gamer has finally gone live. It is called Print Screen and deals with books and film and where they meet the gaming world. It will run near the end of every month.

There some layout issues with the column – no idea what’s happening there, but you can find each of them here:

Book Review: Mass Effect
Movie Review: In the Name of the King
Book Review: Second Lives

    I think it’s more than the column, Crispy Gamer has been, well, pretty much fried from the get go.

    Having to review game and move tie-ins? I guess you drew the short straw at the planning meeting, eh? ;)

    Heh. My idea, actually.

    And not just tie-ins. That would be terrible. The Second Lives book, for example, is a serious look at virtual worlds from the perspective of a journalist who had played some Quake but was otherwise new to the topic.

    The site still has some technical glitches, undoubtedly. But like a good soldier, I’ll only notice when it affects me.

    Nice reviews. I read the Mass Effect novel in preparation for the upcoming PC version, and it’s really quite terrible. But I’d like to point out that Karpyshyn’s Darth Bane novels are actually pretty good, at least the first one. I guess it’s easier to write an interesting story if it’s about the old Sith and you have the well-developed Star Wars universe to back you up.

    I’ve given up on much of the Expanded Universe stuff, and I haven’t heard much good about the Darth Bane novels. But you’re a man of good judgment, so I’ll take your word on it. Maybe I’ll check my public library.
