2 old 2 play update

In case you were unaware, I write regular posts for another gaming site called 2 Old 2 Play.com. A website community for gamer 25 and older. I try to avoid double posting the content here on Gamedae for the most part. I’ll continue to do these update posts with links to my articles over there. Quick and easy links for my readers and also myself. Picking up where I left off in my last 2 Old 2 Play update, I’ve been a busy blogger for the older gamers.

Following the progress of one of the year’s biggest titles has been a little daunting. For over a year and right up to the game’s launch High Moon Studios has been trickling out information for Transformers fans to get excited about. This has led to quite a few posts for Transformers Fall of Cybertron with upcoming release news (7/6/2012) or some more original content like my piece on Transformers canon (5/11/2012) and of course, the review (8/30/2012).

As a gamer, everyone knows that E3 is the biggest event of the year; covering E3 for 2O2P was no exception. Luckily, the content team banded together to divide and conquer. Some of the Gamedae Couch Coverage I was able to repurpose like the E3 Home Viewing Guide (6/1/2012) and my Nintendo Keynote (6/5/2012) recap.

I’ve continued the Whiterun Times posts covering the news pertaining to Bethesda’s title Skyrim, even a little news on the upcoming Elder Scrolls MMO. Update 1.6 (5/30/2012) with a tease of the mounted combat system and an E3 edition (6/7/2012) of the Whiterun Times with the announcement of the first DLC: Dawnguard.

What we’ve been calling “News Posts” is a way to get information to the community quickly via shorter punchier posts. I’ve participated in the weekly New Releases (8/20) as well as announcing some new game trailers like Joe Danger 2 The Movie (8/17/2012).

Some of my favorite posts of the year have been the review of Starhawk (5/23/2012), the futuristic third-person shooter MMO exclusive for the PS3 and introducing this (mostly Xbox users) community to some of the gems in the Sony universe like PS Home via The Casino. (6/20/2012).

There are more posts on the way for 2o2p. This list takes you right up into September. Be sure to check out the front page news on 2old2play.com often.

2 old 2 play update

The past few months the majority of my writing has gone to 2Old2Play.com. Being part of the writing team there is going really well. It is nice being critiqued by your peers and they have me playing some games I might not have played otherwise. After the jump is a list of the posts I have running on the 2O2P front page. Take a gander and see if anything strikes your interest. While your there, why not join the community? There are game giveaways and forum topics on just about everything you might be interested in.

I’ve started an ongoing feature called The Whiterun Times where I report news on everything Skyrim. Check out the premiere post (April 16th) with a feature on the (then-upcoming) XBox360 Kinect integration. The second Whiterun Times post (May 4th) announces the upcoming DLC called Dawnguard among other news.
I’m also posting news on an upcoming release I’m really excited for: Transformers Fall of Cybertron. You may recall Verdeberg and I really enjoying it’s predecessor War for Cybertron. The first post (April 27th) is a roll call of the playable characters in the new game.
Of course, I’m still doing reviews. Check out this piece on the iOS game: rComplex (April 13th). It was a lot like Canabalt if you remember that one. Also posted, is another tag team game review with another writer of the downloadable game Awesomenauts (May 11th).

I’ll keep posting the links to my 2O2P material for easy reference, thanks for reading and stay tuned for more.
