We’ve reached the end of the second week here at The Opinionated Gamers. The demand for writing slots has increased to the point where we’re starting to publish almost every day now! In case you might have missed something, here’s what we focused on this past week:
- Monday – Joe Huber’s essay on Playing Games Faster
- Tuesday – Matt Carlson’s review of new games for the iPhone/iPad
- Wednesday – Liga’s interview with Leo Colovini
- Thursday – Doug Garrett’s review of Asara
- Friday – Frank Branham’s review of Earth Reborn
- Saturday – Greg Schloesser’s review of Desperados
Previous weekly recaps can be seen here…
So, I think that these first two weeks are a pretty good representation of what we’re trying to bring you here. About half of the pieces have been game reviews while the other posts have been a nice mix of interviews, first impressions of games and other thoughtful essays on gaming. And, while most of us here focus on “Euro-games”, we certainly play just about everything – and we will continue to talk about whatever sorts of games that we come across! If you’d rather leave your comments privately – contact us here.
At this point, I think it’s a good time to ask you, the reader, if you have any comments about the blog — what you like and dislike? How have you liked the format of the Opinionated Gamers? Is there anything that we could do better? Topics or games you’d like us to cover? Have you been able to access the site? If you read by RSS, drop us a note to let us know – we don’t have a great way to see how many readers get us via feed only.
Well, back to work managing the blog – next week will be another full week here with reviews planned of 2 significant Essen releases and lots more!
Thanks again for reading,
— editor of the Opinionated Gamers
