The End of an Era

I recently heard the sad news that Tips and Tricks magazine has finally gone to that big magazine rack in the sky. For a few years, I had the pleasure of being a Contributing/Freelance editor for them. In my opinion, arguably the best strategy guide writers in the biz.

What an upbeat way to start up my blog, eh? Well, my blog is intended to discuss mostly game design issues, but considering Tips and Tricks played an indirect role in guiding me toward my current path in the video game industry, I felt this was the least I could do.

On the other hand, the least Hideo Kojima could do for Tips and Tricks was actually place a copy of the magazine into Metal Gear 3: Snake Eater. How cool is that? Check it out if you haven’t.

On that note, I want to leave you with the best strategy guide I ever wrote for Tips and Tricks. *Tooting my own horn ALERT* I took a lot of pride in writing this strategy because at the time I held the official Arcade Daytona USA world record in the Beginner and Advanced tracks. Enjoy.
