Indie Gamer Chick has a New Writer and PC Coverage

Indie Gamer Chick now has an Indie Gamer Guy. His name is Jerry Bonner. He will do PC reviews and editorials.

Jerry shares my beliefs about game criticism: that a critic should hold nothing back and not be a cheerleader. Like me, he will pay for his own games. His reviews will have no score. He also believes reviews should be fun to read.

But Jerry has a much different background than I do. I’m 23. He’s 42. Video games as they exist today came into being in his lifetime. He’s lived through every console generation, whereas I got my start on the original PlayStation. So while he believes in my philosophy, he’ll have his own identity and tastes. He’ll also have his own Seal of Approval and, eventually, his own Leaderboard.

As for me, I’ve exclusively reviewed console and handheld based indies since I started Indie Gamer Chick on July 1, 2011, and nothing is going to change in that regards. I’ll continue to offer the same no-holds-barred coverage of XBLIGs, XBLAs, PlayStation Network, PlayStation Mobile, iPhone, and Nintendo eShop games. We’re coming up on the second birthday of Indie Gamer Chick, and I’m more excited now than ever. With Jerry onboard, I no longer have to worry about expanding to PC coverage and spreading myself too thin. Indie Gamer Chick will now have more coverage than ever before.

Independent game development is not just a fad. The genie is out of the bottle and it isn’t going back in. I’m so proud that my little blog that I started two years ago has caught on the way it has. I’m even more excited now that it will cover all aspects of indie gaming.

By the way, you should follow Jerry on Twitter.  I hope you’ll embrace him the way you have me.  You guys have no idea how much my life has been enhanced through Indie Gamer Chick.  The indie community means the world to me.  My biggest hope is that Jerry finds being Indie Gamer Guy every bit as rewarding as being Indie Gamer Chick has been for me.

So starting sending in those requests for PC reviews.  I also now have a form for developers to fill out to send requests in.  You can look forward to an introductory post from Jerry himself very soon.  Meanwhile, it’s time for me to get back to reviewing the latest XBLIGs.  I think the Leaderboard’s skid is about to come to an end.

    I suppose this is the first step in what will eventually become the multi-billion dollar conglomerate CathyCo.

  4. Curtis Mirci says:

    What about games that have both XBLIG and PC releases? Should we contact both of you and let you fight it out?

What do you think?
