It’s happening! We’re legit now, people!! I just wanted to thank my readers and fellow gaming bloggers for all of your support, especially my first Patrons on my Patreon, Normal Happenings and the Well Red Mage! I would never have been approved for a pass without all of you and I’m so grateful.
Anyone going to be at PAX or live in the Seattle area? Leave me a comment or email me if you’d like to meet up. 🙂
Welcome back for Part Two of the Video Game Literary Classics Collaboration! This week we leave the bright, optimistic plains of Nippon and Hyrule of Part One behind and head into ancient kingdoms steeped in shadow and futures full of technology gone wrong. Thank you to my better half, Connor, for assisting with some of these titles that he has played and I have not. Let’s take a look at the next set of classics selected by the gaming blogger community!
I wanted to make it easier for gaming writers to connect with the gaming blogger community, so I started this little series called “Rising Stars” where both veteran bloggers and readers can discover and welcome new or relatively unknown gaming writers into the community. I hope this will help to encourage and support individuals as well as maintain the health of the gaming blogger community overall!
You can find the first Rising Stars post here, and now let’s take a look at this week’s five featured bloggers…
Things are going extremely well with no sign of slowing down, so I wanted to go ahead and announce new branding and the Backlog Crusader Patreon launch!
Megan over at a Geeky Gal was amazing to work with on the branding for Backlog Crusader. Very quick, professional, with good communication and fair pricing. I would highly recommend her for any of your current or future graphic design needs!
I’ve gotten a few questions about if I’ll be setting up a Patreon, so without further ado, here is the info. Feedback is welcome!
Like the content? Please consider becoming a Patron of Backlog Crusader!
The Backlog Crusader Patreon will help to absorb the costs of the Backlog Crusader domain, professional email hosting, logo commission cost, and of course the hours I spend working on content I sincerely hope you enjoy. In return, I’ve prepared some rewards supporters should find appealing!
I created Backlog Crusader on April 25th and in only two months, thanks to the support of nerdy friends, family, and a great WordPress community, we’ve managed to reach 200 wordpress followers, 5,000 visitors, and 10,000 views. That’s basically absurd for a totally unknown, brand new gaming blog, and it’s all because of you guys!
It’s time to give back. As a celebration and a thank you to my amazing readers and fellow writers, I’m doing a giveaway from my Steam Key Loot Vault of over 100 keys that need a good home. They aren’t triple A titles or anything, but I’m sure some will be of interest. There’s definitely some indie favorites in there that you might not have tried yet!
These days gamers tend to consume video game reviews, information, and related gaming entertainment in video format on sites like Youtube or Twitch, but we still have an enthusiastic editorial gaming community here on WordPress!

For those still planning to participate in the Video Game Literary Classics 101 community collab, please try to get your posts in by Monday. I have been commenting on each entry that pingbacks to the original collab post, so if you did not receive a comment from me, please assume I missed it and poke me again. I just got back from a two week vacation and hopefully none slipped through the cracks while I was checking on things from mobile.
If you are a new gaming blogger community member wanting to participate or someone needing a little more time, please let me know ASAP. I’ll be working on the final collab post for a week or two so a little late is totally doable. (Already heard from one or two about late entry.)
Entries so far have been fabulous and I’m looking forward to putting together the final “syllabus”!
