Suvudu LogoToday is an exciting day for me. Last year, I had the opportunity to write for and to maintain two satellite sites for them on Facebook and Twitter. It was a wonderful experience and I met many lovely people as a result. That endeavour has ended, but in its place I am proud to announce and equally exciting adventure: I’ve joined the blogging team at Suvudu, the official Fantasy/Science Fiction/Gaming blog of Random House and Del Rey.

For the most part, I’ll be covering videogames for Suvudu, something I touch on lightly here at A Dribble of Ink, but I’ve been wanting to write about more frequently. I’m grateful for the folks at Suvudu giving me a platform to do so. I already have some great interviews lined up and hope to follow those up with reviews, news, retrospectives on my favourite games and much more. Del Rey works with many of the world’s best videogame publishers and developers, which in turn will give me access to some of the industry’s best minds, a resource I’m eager to tap into. But, fear not, in addition to all the great series that Del Rey is involved with (Mass Effect, Star Wars, The Elder Scrolls, etc…), I’ll be covering a wide range of games in the genre, from Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, to The Last Guardian, Kingdoms of Amalur, XCOM, Metal Gear Solid and more. Anything that interests me or my readers. It’s a wonderful opportunity and I’ll hope that you’ll follow me over there, too.

What does this mean for A Dribble of Ink? Not much. Coverage here won’t change and there will be little crossover in content, except perhaps some posts here and there that I might port over from Suvudu as an archive.

My first article, about the delay of the Star Wars: The Old Republic 1.1 update, can be found HERE.

    That’s awesome! May I ask how one gets to blog for Tor/Suvudu? I’ve looked on their websites, but it seems like they only allow blog posts from published authors and the like.

    Cool beans, as the kids say!

    Congrats. Cool beans. Oh shit. I just made myself a kid. On the subject of movies–Books do not make good movies. My brother is in movies. Short stories follow more screen play structure and are not unwieldy to distill for an audience that will always be mad at you for leaving out some element.

    Speaking of movies, a short for shits and giggles:
