Joining the Dark Side

March 29, 2010

It’s finally happening! I’ll be working with Gamespot UK for the next 2 weeks and …. and I am so intimidated it hurts. No, seriously, I think I am bleeding internally. No wait… I’m just hungry. Wow, what do I even say? I’m so excited and scared. It’s like my Japanese scholarship interview all over again. Yes, I know I am over reacting but that is what I do.

I met up with Alex Coby, the production editor, and he was fantastic. Asked me all sorts of questions like how I felt about Gamespot and what I liked on the site. A little like a job interview if I am honest, which was cool. It was very relaxed and even though I dressed up a little bit, he told me the dress code would be casual and to turn up in whatever. Sweet~

We spoke briefly about what I’ll be doing. News and previews it turns out, with my first preview being published on the site for Tuesday. How amazing is that? Apart from that we spoke about previews and how they should and shouldn’t be written. Thankfully we both have the same attitude to what previews contain, so I’ll be able to adjust quicker than I thought.

So for the next 2 days I’ll be reading the website, learning their style as much as I can and preparing for them to throw me into the deep end on Wednesday. If you have advice for me then please go ahead, I need all I can get.

Now, I have some previews to finish off.
