Finding My Way as a Content Creator in the Modern Internet

I entered the video game blogosphere in 2009 with one simple goal: share my thoughts on gaming with the world. There were no ambitions on my end to be the next IGN, PewDiePie, or Angry Video Game Nerd, but I felt like I had a lot of things to say and maybe I would find some sort of audience along the way. In that time, In Third Person has generated over 400,000 pageviews, over 30,000 video views on YouTube and Facebook. With the Amazon Affiliate program, I’ve even made a few dollars here and there. Nothing that allows me to quit my full time job, but some bonus scratch is always welcome.

Truly thankful to you and everyone else that has supported my musings for the better part of a decade. That being said, the world of being a content creator is very different in 2017. Seeing it evolve, and taking the lessons I’ve learned along the way, let me take a look in the mirror and see where I stand.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

Better late than never!

After finally getting its ducks in a row with the Mega Man franchise, Capcom seems to be doing the same with Street Fighter. Pretty much every major version of the franchise from Street Fighter 1 through 3 are coming in one package at a discount price. On top of that, Hyper Fighting, Super Turbo, Alpha 3, and Third Strike will all feature online play.

While I have numerous copies of these games in different forms, it’ll be super convenient to have them all in one place. Might even double dip with the PS4 version to play online or at home with my fightstick, along with the Switch version for portable action.

This compilation will be out in May of 2018. Can’t come soon enough!

Why Good Board Games Struggle to Make it to The Table

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game is a fantastic strategy game that puts each player at the helm of one of the major houses in the franchise. Despite my love for it, that game is collecting dust on our shelf. Just because I own it and because it’s good doesn’t mean I’m going to play it into the ground. The reality is, there are factors about that and other board games in my collection that make it very difficult for them to make it on the table. Here’s a couple of reasons why games I enjoy struggle to get played.

Fast & Furious: Full Throttle Review

Long before the series transitioned into the world of action, the Fast & Furious franchise focused on street racing. Fast & Furious: Full Throttle is a tabletop take on the series’ racing roots. Players will compete against each other in street races, vying for first place, without any of the punching and stunt work that would work its way into the action later. Does this licensed racing game have the nitro it needs to push it across the finish line?

SteamWorld Dig 2 Review

The original SteamWorld Dig was an indie darling that seamlessly fused together elements of Dig Dug, Minecraft, and Metroid. Having it loaded up on my 3DS, I powered through that game with joy while on a train ride to Montreal. Years later, the sequel is here with a new protagonist and some new tricks up her sleeves.
