That means I can pay rent.
I had my first major meeting with Play today, and got to meet my boss, Dave. He’s really great, and I’m over-excited about my future at the company. When Rocket launches in the fall, I’ll be the Executive Editor. I now write about anime and games for a living. Which is funny, considering that so much of this blog has been about my struggle to find a place where I could do just that, and associate with people who spoke my language. Dave does, and so does the rest of Play. Many thanks go out to Matt-aka ShaperMC. Without his gracious acceptance of me at The Gamer’s Quarter, I don’t know that any of this would have happened. Shaper, thank you so very much. You can have a free subscription to the magazines for as long as I work there; you’re on my comp list. I just need to know your address. If I can figure out anything else to give you, I will. I’m forever in your debt.
And I’m working on my next article for TGQ right now — it’s an extension of the idea that Final Fantasy is not a game, but a religion.
