|Just because I think they look cute|
I very rarely do posts that say "hey, I've seen a cool blog and think you should take a look". I guess I should do it some more, as I do see lots of cool blogs out there and think "damn, this needs more views". Trouble is I normally have my own rubbish to write, so quite often I forget to say "hey take a look at this". So here are my 'go to' blogs, things I always check. I'm guessing a lot of you will already be familiar with my Swedish gaming twin Martin, and his work at Fire Broadside or James S at Warp Signal who always has an interesting take on things. Then there are my Friends Ant Holloway with his Geneseed blog, and Matt Sorrowshard at Rant in E Minor with his lovely Dark Eldar, well worth a visit if you haven't already seen them. I also often take a wander over to Von's Game Over blog, simply because I find his take on things interesting. I also regularly check out Jake Thornton's blog Quirkworthy. Because it's always interesting to hear what an actual game designer has to say, that and he's a thoroughly nice chap and a damn fine gamer to boot!
But I'm guessing most of you already knew about those blogs, and if you didn't hopefully it'll show you just how easy it is to miss awesome blogs on the Internet! I want to make sure though that you all don't miss a new blog that has recently come to my attention. It's not full of flashy pictures or images of semi-clad porn stars. Doesn't seem to rely on shock tactics to get rubber necking hits. Nope it's so new it only has 3 articles, all of them really, really interesting reads:
The blog is Rambling Dichotomies, and the use of one of my favourite words had nothing to do with me liking this blog... well OK, maybe it did just a little bit. It's written by IceRaptor, who was the terribly nice fellow who answered everyone's questions so helpfully on my Heavy Gear Blitz article earlier this month. So I really don't mind giving him a shout out, because he seems a decent sort. Any way, that's all you horrible lot are getting off of me today as I have things to do. Peace out!
