Have you ever wanted to play video games and get payed for it? It seems like every kid’s dream job, but it’s actually a possibility. Careers like game reviewers at gaming magazines are completely possible if you really want it. How do you get this job, you say? Well, Dan Amrich, the guy behind One Of Swords just wrote a whole book on it! He’s been reviewing games, talking about games, and playing games his whole life, and he gets paid to do it! He currently works at Activision as a community manager, but he has worked at OXM (The Official Xbox Magazine), Gamepro, GamesRadar, Wired, and others. If you’d like to know more about it, go ahead and check out his website (also in the sidebar on the right). The book is available on Kindle and paperback now, and will be on iBooks soon. So if you’ve ever been interested in working in the gaming industry, this would probably put you in the right direction.
Speaking of books, Hugh Sterbakov’s book that I mentioned before, entitled “City Under The Moon,” now has a full web page. It even has a sample of the book on his site, in case you were hesitant about buying the book before. So there’s no excuse now! Check it out!
