GameRants is my latest website, a little window to the www and a place for me to gather my thoughts and opinions about anything related to video games and the vast industry they have realised. I’m a gamer, a guy not unlike you, aside from the fact I enjoy researching, discussing and writing about video games almost (?) as much as I do playing them.
In the past, I run Mod HQ, a news outlet for the mod communities of games like “Unreal Tournament 2004″, “Doom 3″, “Battlefield 2″, and eventually – with the name changed to Steam Lab – dedicated to Source Engine based projects. Before its untimely death, in May of 2008, I got to experience what I consider the highlights of my early career; a pair of exclusive interviews with Valve Software and the legendary – but now absorbed by MumboJumbo – Ritual Entertainment.
You can find some of these articles duplicated in the History section for, well, historic purposes. I also did some work for GameSpy’s Planet Half-Life, for the defunct Amped DX, and I even run Jolt’s Half-Life 2 section for a while, though none of those places hold a place on my heart as big and dear as Mod HQ does.
This sums up my early writing endeavours until May 2007, when I finally had to engage my army service, which sent me all the way to Cyprus for a full, long year, but that’s a story for another time and place.
