Hey there. I'm Dan and I'm filling in for the Goose while he's off cavorting with performance artists and rap stars at E3. Nice to meecha.
Some of you will probably know me already, either from my work in mags like Hyper and Total Gamer, or from my (ocassionally NSFW) gaming blog, Eegra. However, for those of you who haven't had the pleasure, here's a bullet-point summary of my qualifications and relevant character traits:
- I've been gaming for around 25 years, and have worked as a games writer for more than a decade.
- During my tenure in the games press, I've contributed to pretty much every major mag and website on the local scene: Hyper, PC Powerplay, Official Xbox, Official PlayStation, games.on.net, and - now - Kotaku AU.
- I typically play Western RPGs (FFXIII has turned me off the Eastern variety entirely), shooters and open-world adventures a la Darkstalkers. My favourite games are Deus Ex, Deus Ex and Deus Ex. Also, Mass Effect 2.
- I enjoy long walks on the beach, holding hands, reading poetry and swearing in foreign languages.
- I am a cat and wear a helmet made of fruit.
And that's about it. I'll be here till Friday, keeping the site updated with local content until the Unshaven One returns from the States. So sit back, relax and prepare yourself for a four-day dose of A-grade Stiz.
