It seems like a lifetime ago that I sat staring blankly at my computer screen in the windowless copy room at my graduate school that served as my makeshift office. It was then that I decided to launch Applied Gaming, because sanity desperately demanded I write about something that wasn’t “high-dimensional approximation of positive semidefinite matrices” for a change.
Two years later—despite a dissertation, a second child, and a new house—I’m still writing about the thing I love most in the world. (At least, the thing I love that isn’t my wife or our offspring.) I’ve posted 56 articles (including 20 game reviews), went to my first PAX East, talked with dozens of developers, raised money for charity, and most importantly, I’ve successfully validated the hundreds of hours (and hundreds of dollars) I’ve spent on video games in the past two years.
In fact, it’s been such a good idea, I plan to keep doing it. So, thanks to all my friends and readers, and keep on visiting the site!
PS – I finished Halo 4 last night; a review is forthcoming.
