I’m Sarah and I’m a new writer at Kotaku (as well as Lifehacker and Gizmodo.) In my 25 years on the planet, I’ve spent about 21 years of it playing video games so I hope I can offer an insight or two.
Before starting my role here, I worked in a bunch of writing roles. For two years, I was the Content Producer at Student Edge and I wrote about everything from a pseudo investigative report into who exactly was behind Australia’s fake space agency, ARSE, to asking the important questions like 'When does Days Gone start to get good?' Prior to that, I wrote a few things for The BRAG and was the head honcho at my uni’s student magazine.
But, my time as writer hasn’t been without a good share of old-fashioned internet hate, which I love to tell people about…
I once legitimately referred to Sonic the Hedgehog as a 'speedy mouse' and had to issue an update and apology to all the stans I subsequently offended. Among that and being written about by the anti-fan club on the “world's most viewed” blog on climate change denial, I’ve built up a bit of a resilience so feel free to @ me the next time I liken Cyberpunk 2077 to a blend of GTA V and Ready Player One. Go on, try me.
Mostly, I’m excited to get started on filling up my Kotaku portfolio with lots of fun news and handy tips to up your video game life.
