Daniel Golding, Melbourne-based academic and writer, has taken the reins of a new gaming blog on Crikey.com.au entitled Game On.
The blog takes a more thoughtful and considered approach, reflecting on aspects of gaming which go much deeper than the usual news to offer an independent perspective.
Golding told MCV: "The blog is the latest addition to Crikey's stable of culture blogs, and I think it presents a really exciting opportunity to take something of the kind of deeper criticism of videogame culture we've been seeing over the last few years to a general audience."
"I'm hoping to engage with the kinds of people who take the time to think deeply about cinema, literature and theatre, giving them an opportunity to view videogames with the same kind of lens."
While there are only a few entries on the blog so far, those interested in following can check it out here.
On a personal note, Golding concluded: "It's a great opportunity for me as a writer, and for Crikey as a publication. I'm looking to do as best with it as I possibly can."
