Game Invader - My Weekly Gaming Column in The New Indian Express
It's official - I'm now an official game journalist! I have a weekly column (Titled 'Game Invader'. Nifty, eh?) in Zeitgeist, the Saturday paper from the all-new, zippily redesigned New Indian Express.
The first one was called 'A call to non-gamers'. You can read the online version here.
But, seriously, if you're interested in gaming, you must get the actual paper. Editor-in-chief Aditya Sinha has done gamers a huge favour by taking a leap of faith and devoting a full page every Saturday to gaming, the first newspaper in India to do so. It's a spanking new redesign, and has tons of great content (no, I'm not returning a favour or anything. I honestly believe that Zeitgeist, and the new Express, are a breath of fresh air for newspaper readers in the city. Try it for yourself.). Go out and get one this Saturday, and you'll see what I mean.
This is what Zeitgeist's gaming page looks like. That's me in the corner. That's me in the spot . . . light . . . losing . . er . . .sorry.
And besides my column, there are other great articles on gaming as well, written by excellent individuals such as Videep Vijay Kumar and Sumit Mehra.
So, does this make me India's first weekly columnist on gaming? At least in a print newspaper? Can any of my readers point me towards any others?
I'm enjoying this thoroughly - it's a dream come true. Hope you guys enjoy reading my stuff even half as much.
