Working in Call of Duty eSports – Why it Hurts

CoD

I love eSports, particularly Call of Duty eSports. Call of Duty 4 ignited my love for the series, and despite the mixed opinions of each game released, it continues to be a wonderful source of entertainment. I never once imagined writing inside of the eSports industry. Writing was a self-motivated endeavor for me, and I’ve written for years with the intent of working my way into the video game industry. So of course when I first started writing specifically for Call of Duty eSports, I fell in love.

I fell out of love very quickly. Read the rest of this page »

When I decided that I wanted to review this product, I tried to research other perfume reviews to find some direction… and of course it was a total fail. I’m not a perfume expert by any means, but Fresh N’ Geeky deserves some recognition from the video game community.

Why?

Q/A: Finding Work in the Industry, Reviewing Products

Typing

I’ve been a writer inside of the video game community for about four years now. I started my own site that originally contained poetry before I realized I could combine my two main loves: writing and video games. My experience isn’t as extensive as some who may have already developed careers, but I’ve also taken a different path than some. There has been a lot of failure, but there has been an immeasurable amount of success… and now I’m starting to get repetitive questions from people wanting to do what I do. My advice may not work for you! If you truly want to write in this community then you’ll have to learn how to experiment and discover exactly what works for you.

In 2081, the planet was on the verge of collapse. Your prodigious knowlegde of theoretical physics is what made you uniquely qualified to lead the first interstellar colonization mission to planet Gliese, roughly 20 lightyears from Earth.
