100,000 Served

IndieGamerChick.com was opened with no expectations grander than “make my boyfriend and his pals have a chuckle or two.”  My Xbox Live Indie Game experience was limited to exactly two games, and I hadn’t even thought of the channel in months.  I had never done a blog, wrote extensively about gaming, or really paid much attention to the process of independent game production.  I wasn’t looking to join a community.  I wasn’t expecting anyone to pay attention to me at all.  Indie Gamer Chick was kind of a lark that fulfilled my need for a hobby and my desire to play some original games during the summer gaming drought.

219 days later, Indie Gamer Chick has just cleared 100,000 views, and is now viewed as a force to be reckoned with on the Xbox Live Indie Game scene.  Go figure.

I’ve run the well dry on thanking people individually, so I’ll just issue one all-encompassing THANK YOU to everyone.  To all those developers who embraced me, to community leaders who have endorsed me, to readers who have recommended me, and even the haters that have made this whole thing so fun, thank you.

My only goal with Indie Gamer Chick is to have fun.  I think that’s why it’s doing so well.  I’m not a professional writer and I don’t aspire to be one, so doing reviews as if I was one would be silly and probably boring.  Boring for me to write, and boring for you to read.   Video games are supposed to be fun, so why would I not want to transfer that fun to the writing process?  Hopefully, if I’m having fun writing, that means you’re having fun reading.

Well, I’ve had a ton of fun so far.  And I’ve played some really amazing games as well.  I’ve met some incredibly talented people.  Hopefully I’ve helped sell their games.  I hope I can continue to do well for your community.  Although Kairi Vice is tough and mean and has to bust your balls from time to time, the real Catherine has boundless respect and love for you all.

Thank you for allowing me your company.  Hopefully you leave room for the hilarious Alan C with Tea of Indie Ocean (the funniest Xbox Live Indie Game reviewer alive) and the awesome (and awesomely plageristic!) guys at Gear Fish, even when they’re late with my celebratory banner.  I really should work on those Photoshop skills.

And no, I didn’t review Fortress Craft.  I realized that I probably should have played MineCraft first.

And no, I didn’t extend the leaderboard.  But I’m working on something to make up for that.

And no, I didn’t watch the Superbowl.  I’m still pissed that Stanford didn’t get in.

And no, I’m not that stupid.  I know Standford can’t play in the Superbowl.  AFC Championship game at most.

And no, I’m not just padding this out because the longer I do, the longer I have to go without playing Fortress Craft.

And no, I’m not going to mention that I started playing Fortress Craft and was as lost as Ted Nugent in a gay bar.

And no, I’m not going to keep this joke running any longer.  Tootle-loo.
