As some of you may know, or care, Ben Abraham will be gallivanting off to GDC thanks to the generous contributions from around the blogosphere, proving once more that some people have way too much free time on their hands. All kidding aside, I’m sure Ben will do a bang up job covering the event. For those of you who don’t know him and will be going, he’ll be the one introduced as the Permadeath guy. He will also have an Australian accent and probably be the only one with a tan.
“What does this have to do with me?” the man at the back of the room says. I’m glad you, not a plant, asked me that. Ben Abraham, among his many ventures, posts the TWIVGB (This Week in Video Game Blogging) feature over at the Critical Distance blog. Due to the fact he will be out of the country, his country not mine, he has decided to take leave of his senses and ask me to fill in for the next two weeks.
So if you follow Critical Distance and notice a slight drop in quality of your quick perusal of video game criticism, you know who to blame. If however you don’t want that to happen, please @ reply any links you might find over the course of the next two weeks to the critical distance twitter feed: critdistance.
Critical Distance is a community effort to up the thought surrounding our medium. Please do your part in making my job that much easier.
