I’m not normally in the habit of reposting my Massively Overpowered columns here, but as Blizzard’s games have such personal significance for me and have been such a huge part of this blog’s content, I wanted to signal boost my take on recent events.
I have to admit it’s a bit scary to be sharing my personal struggles on so public a forum, especially as this article does paint something of a bleak picture of my life. To be honest I’m not wholly sure what motivated me to do this. I guess I thought it might be cathartic.
I think I also wanted to stretch my wings as a writer a bit. I’m happy working in games journalism, but it’s nice to flesh out my portfolio a bit. Maybe it will lead to more opportunities down the line. Specialization is the autistic way, but I don’t need to be a complete one trick pony.
