Like a phoenix from the ashes, like Bowser and his stupid Koopalings, like Ron Paul in every election for the past 250 years, we have returned.
Tim Poon and I (you know, Britton Peele. Do try to keep up) maintained this blog in our spare time during college, when we weren’t writing for The Daily Toreador. When Tim graduated it fell into disuse. When I graduated it was lost in the forgotten annals of history.
The Experience Points blog is dead. But we’ve come back to start a New Game Plus.
Now, we’re both freelancers, when we can find people to pay us to write things. Trouble is, that’s not always an easy task, especially as great outlets like GamePro fall to the enemy that is gaming illiteracy. So part of the reason we decided to come back to this blog was so we would have a dumping ground for those thoughts and ideas that couldn’t find a home somewhere else. But mostly we came back because it was a lot of fun. We missed doing podcasts and chatting about how short Wanted: Weapons of Fate was or how much I love Monkey Island. I also missed that big, poofy hair of Tim’s.
We’re not 100 percent positive what will go here, only that it probably won’t be typical stuff like reviews. We do that sort of thing elsewhere now, and we have other things we want to try. We’ll definitely do some more podcasts soon, and we’re talking about doing some video content, because this new start-up site YouTube really caught our attention recently.
