Hi there, I’m Fuzzy, an Australian 20-something who blogs about video games and comics. Growing up through the late 90s, 2000s and 2010s, I’ve been exposed to a lot of different types of media. I was there for the era of Saturday morning cartoons, the 2000s anime boom and the rise of video games as a dominant art form. In the 2010s, I got into comics — almost entirely divorced from the superhero movie boom of the time, which I was very late to — and it became what is probably my most consumed media. I also really like talking about and analysing media, which is what this blog is for — to make sure my writing muscles don’t atrophy.
I write about industry trends and news; review games and comics; and just write about stuff that I feel like writing about. This blog was created, quite literally, because I was procrastinating — I’m a university student studying education, by the way. It was supposed to be updated at least once a week, but being a student, that doesn’t always happen — in fact, stuff is more often than not late. But there’s no grades here, except the ones I give!
Anyway, here’s a quick rundown of what the badly named titles mean:
Industry Talk – My thoughts on the video game industry, trends and news.
Impressions – Quick impressions of game demos, alphas, betas, etc. Usually a lot less concise and well-written than reviews, since these are done quick-and-dirty and I’m on a time limit a lot of the time, what with the limited time to play and all.
Preview Thoughts – My opinions on trailers and gameplay footage; basically Impressions but where I haven’t personally played anything. Mostly limited to franchises I already have at least a passing interest in, since I don’t watch trailers for new IP from new devs.
Recommendations for the New Comic Reader – The inelegantly named posts where I recommend currently ongoing series, specifically focused on newer readers. “New readers” being the key phrase, so nothing that could scare people away from comics. Limited to series where the current arc is a good jumping on point for readers, with no necessary backtracking.
Rantings – My thoughts on the comic book industry and news. These can range from topical issues to thoughts on upcoming releases to just something I felt like putting out there.
Gateway Comics – Posts where I recommend comics for new readers looking to get into a franchise or character, with a focus on things that I’m a big fan of.
