So Technology Hates Me

Posted in Site Info on May 27, 2008 by gamewhisperer

*Another Update: Good news everybody I’m back up and going. I’ve got a new computer and everything so we should be good from here on out. Check back in tomorrow night for a long awaited update, I will finally post my thoughts on the rumored Metroid movie and I may even have a review ready, I hope you check back in.

*Update: Well things haven’t gone quite as I planned, I can’t get the article I typed on my iPod to post through it, though this update seems to be working just fine… Maybe it has to do with the length of the post, I’m not sure. So it seems I’m going to be waiting a little longer to really get anymore posts coming, I’ve got a new computer on the way so, whenever it arrives I’ll be back up and going.

____I’ve had some unfortunate major meltdowns with my laptop lately so updates are going to be a little scarce for the next couple weeks. As of right now I’m typing this with my thumbs on my iPod… not exactly the most comfortable way to write, I must say. I managed to type out a whole post though so check in tonight when I weigh in on the rumors that Michael Bay has been selected as the producer of the nearly forgotten Metroid Movie.

End of Semester Blues at the Game Whisperer

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts talk tonight!

____Just wanted to let anyone who’s been reading know that I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth. I know it has been a few days since the last post but don’t worry I’m going to get things up and running again starting tonight, since my semester at school is finally over. I had a ton of finals to take care of, as well as wrapping up an internship which required a 10 page paper… so writing wasn’t exactly at the top of my “want to do” list. But if your still listening check back toninght, I will weigh in on the new style of Banjo-Kazooie that was revealed last week. Do I like it? Do I hate it, check back later tonight to find out.

Man We Had a Great Day!

Posted in Site Info on May 14, 2008 by gamewhisperer

It seems my Lost Winds review got pretty popular last night, because we had the best day traffic wise since the launch of the site. I just wanted to thank everybody that tuned in last night and today to look at the review, for helping in that accomplishment. Unfortunately no official update tonight, I just got off work (I went there at 9 a.m. and left just about an hour ago at 11 p.m.) so I’m a little to wiped, but I hope you’ll swing by tomorrow night, I’m going to do something a little more old school.

And on the topic of how well the review did yesterday, I’ve decided to try and do at least one review a week now. It seems everybody likes them and I like to write them so it’s a win win situation.

I hope everyone noticed that in commemoration of Lost Winds I added the lovable hero Toku to the banner, I think he makes a nice addition. Anyways I’ll catch up with all of you tomorrow.

Till Then,

What a Nightmare Weekend!

Technical problems annoy Baby Bowser and the Game Whisperer

      Well to say that this weekend was a total bust for me would be a terrible understatement. I was really excited about getting my first weekend update up (I’ve been working on it for about a month) but it seems things didn’t want to work out. WordPress was apparently down on Saturday so I couldn’t get in to keep working on it and then yesterday some wicked storms cut through the mid-Atlantic (I live in Maryland) and completely blew out my power all yesterday. Go figure the one time I write an entry in wordpress instead of google docs. But oh well, no use crying over spilled milk. I’ll just have to save my post for next weekend, I unfortunately don’t have much time during the week to work on it. 

      On a bit of good news though I will have the Lost Winds review, as I promised on Friday, up tonight. So far I am having a blast with the game and initial impressions are very good. You’ll have to tune in later tonight to find out my verdict though.

Quick bit’o Site info

Posted in Site Info on May 6, 2008 by gamewhisperer

     Just wanted to let anybody who may be reading know that I am going to start to get a few things rolling with the Blog. First up I am going to start posting links on Digg for each post to hopefully start generating a little more traffic. Second thing is that from now on I will be doing a once every weekend update which will be set to a bit of a different tone than the rest of my entries… you’ll see what I mean. And last but certainly not least in about a week or two I’m going to be converting the Blog to a full domain, it will hopefully just be Gamewhisperer.net but we’ll see. Anyways, Like always, thanks for reading.

Welcome

Hey this is Mike Cramer, or as I am calling myself on this blog ” The Game Whisperer”.

I just wanted to tell you what you can expect from this blog, aside from a corny Cesar Millan reference. I am a journalism student/ intern reporter/ Video game enthusiast who is finally branching off into the wild and wonderful world of blogging. Through this blog I will try to get into the head of the creators of electronic games by analyzing certain aspects of todays most popular video games. 

I know what your thinking, “Who cares?” right? Well I get that, but I’m out to be an acceptable alternative to big budget editorials from the world of gaming journalism, a voice for the regular gamer, if you will. 

If you care enough to listen check in every weeknight, i’ll try to have a new update everyday during the week and one update on weekends. Weekend updates will be… how shall I say — special, to say the least. Expect those Saturday or Sunday night.

Finally I just wanted to aknowledge that for the first week or two, this blog will look very plain. I’m not to up on HTML so I’m going to be training myself. Hopefully I’ll be able to give the site some character in a little while. Right now all I’ve got is my cheesy, automatically generated banner but I promise that’s going to change.

anyways, thanks for reading and enjoy.

yours truley
