My Life As a Mac Game Reviewer: Latest Updates
I haven’t written at all recently about one of my many jobs/pastimes, writing Mac game reviews. I have written about it in the past though. And in recent months there have been some developments. One of the biggest changes for me and Mac gaming news in general is the essential shutdown of Inside Mac Games as a full-fledged Mac gaming website. The owner of the site decided to focus on the the things making him money, and who can blame him, and the news and reviews aspects weren’t that. The site still exists as a forum-based site, with the forum members doing the writing. That was my main gig, and now it’s gone.
Lucky for me, I had a backup, which is my new main gig, and that is MacGamerHQ. We’re a friendly group over there, using Slack to keep in touch, which is helpful as we’re spread over Europe and the United States. MacGamerHQ is a great site if you’re interested in finding reviews, gameplay videos and general information about gaming on your Mac. My benevolent overlord Ric works hard to come up with a steady supply of new content to supplement our reviews and gameplay videos, so check it out and see how much gaming you really can do on your Mac. (I’ve actually been surprised at some of the games people are playing on newer Macbook Airs.)
And my new backup Mac gaming gig, thanks to my old editor Cord Kruse at IMG, is MacNN, for whom I’ve so far only done one review, but hope to do more in the future. MacNN is a venerable site for Mac news, reviews and more, so check that out too.
