Week 688

What’s this? I’m blogging about my work on a weekly basis – a simple way to track and archive whatever it is I spend my time on.

Last week was kind of slow, with lots of small things that are too boring, vague or uncertain to detail here. (I suppose… I really don’t remember most of it. Otherwise I wouldn’t know where my time went.)

I did write a new piece for the Dutch Official PlayStation Magazine, my fifth monthly column there already. I uploaded the third column to this site, as I felt came out pretty well.

Another column was published, on Gamer.nl, about the Experimental Gameplay Sessions I experienced during the Game Developers Conference (GDC) a while back. This is a pretty straightforward piece, describing some of the strange games that were presented, but judging by the comments below the article, this was enough to send some people into utter shock.

For nrc.next, I wrote an article about Journey, based on my interview with game designer Jenova Chen at GDC (see also the video interview), and a Next Level column about games journalist Geoff Keighley and his iPad production The Final Hours of Mass Effect 3. These, plus a backlog of three games reviews, could be published in tomorrow’s paper tomorrow. Not a 100% sure yet.

I also booked a trip to London, to attend a friend’s wedding at the end of June. And, sticking to the theme, I built a website for my sister’s wedding at the end of May.

Finally, I celebrated my oldest daughter’s third birthday, with at least three types of fruit juice.
