The Ludos Mundi Writing Team
“I run my Unit how I run my Unit”. I’m mediocre at most games and my writing skills are about the same. I’m a “big picture” guy. I know talent when I see it. I rather raise an army and flank you than pick up a pistol and take you down myself. I like co-op games and being the back-up guy. If I have to be on the front lines, I’m your Wingman.
Genre: Strategy, Flight Simulation
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.” -Jim Jarmusch
Genre: RPG, Action, Adventure, Puzzle, Shooter, Fighting and Strategy
K Valentine :
I’m a Jack of All Trades hobbyist who writes about whatever eats my free time such as video games. You’ll be sure to hear about it whether a game amuses, frustrates, or bores me enough to write something about it. If I’m not gaming at home, you might find me at an anime, sci-fi, or comic book convention.
Genre: Strategy, Action Adventure, RPG, Rhythm, Casual, Fighting
I’m here to talk about games. All games. Every itty 36-bitty one. From pixel shooting to castle building, I have a question: What do games do? I thought they let us simply do what we can’t — or won’t. But a feeling keeps circling that there’s much more. I don’t believe games are just games. I think they’re more. For me, they can be a mode of expression. You can consider me a gamer idealist. These are great days to game. But pretty much I see myself as a gaming dreamer. If you think that’s odd, laugh. I certainly do.
Genre: Horror, RPG, INDIE, Casual, Adventure, Retro (rpgs), MMOs, FPS, Strategy
Ghost Lily :
I’m a journalist, a university student, a writer above all things, and a Halloween enthusiast with a weakness for dungeon crawlers. I hope to blend two of my passions by applying a lot of social analysis to my writing – I could examine ethnic and gender roles in gaming frameworks all day. I’m always open to gaming discussions.
Genre: Strategy, RPG, Stealth, Flash, Casual, Simulation, Adventure
Dr Nikki :
I’m a wife and mom, but don’t be fooled, I’ve got an itchy trigger finger sitting on a P90 hair trigger. I put words on paper like I blast bullets down range. I’m precise and efficient. See you on the battlefield!
Genre: Shooters, FPS
I write journalistic reviews and articles on the retro and modern games. Sometimes I’ll write an article on popular opinion or make a top ten list that you’ll love to hate. I grew up on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Street Fighter II’ and Donkey Kong Country. I also enjoy any kind of video game console mod. Visit my site on how to mod the original Xbox.
Genre: Retro, All
I’m a wordsmith. Nothin but skillz. I’m Retro baby! Not much for all the fancy graphic games. Give me a one button joystick and I’m as happy as a pig in mud. Don’t let my old school style fool you. I know more about games than the average gamer and I can type faster than you can shoot.
I am a life long gamer and have also worked in the video game industry. I have written for various video game websites. I’m basically a “gun for hire”. I’m a nice guy but let’s face it, I have no master, I’m a MERC, and I answer to no one. Still, I’m a well mannered Brit, ex-SAS (in the videogame world). I moonlight for Ludos, but my services are available to the highest bidder. I’m locked and loaded. One hand on my controller, the other on the keyboard, with my son at my side.
I can enjoy just about every game. If it’s difficult and stressful, I’m likely playing it. Challenging is always welcome in my world. I will win or I will keep trying. I play across all platforms and hope to share my love for games through my writing, hopefully getting readers to join on the fun.
Genre: RPG, FPS, Puzzle/Strategy
“I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with someone who is obviously unarmed.” You can call me Mittens. I’m a tactician; I gather information before I make a move, and when I do it’s swift and with skill. I’m currently enrolled in University. Once I graduate I hope to work in the Video Game Industry. I’m a Warrior in all that I do, defeat is not an option. I’m the man you want at your side when the Zombie Apocalypse happens. If you have any questions just let me know. Cheers!
Genre: RPG, FPS, Puzzle/Strategy
Somewhat of an Xbox fanboy but if I can live with it, so can you. I’m a good Samaritan and feel incredible guilt if I need to make an evil choice in RPGs. But if you kill me in multiplayer I will automatically think you cheated and curse the day
you were born! But I will do it silently in my head. I believe in good behavior!
Genre: FPS, RPG, Adventure
I’m a former hardcore PC gamer gone casual. I’ve logged over a thousand hours in the original Guild Wars, and just broke the same milestone in TF2. Say what you want about my writing in the comment section, just don’t hit my weak point for massive damage!
Genre: MMORPG, FPS, Mobile and Social
