I’m Von. This is my website. It’s about games.
I hate introducing myself.
This website updates as and when I have something to say. It’s been that way since 2009 and all attempts at barfing out content to suit some kind of schedule have failed.
I have a YouTube channel! Currently playing Dawn of War II and Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines, although updates on that ‘un have been a bit sporadic thanks to GOG.com forcing through a new, non-backwards-compatible patch, making it a pain in the ass to install the Plus version I was playing, and rolling out cloud saves/backups that overwrite whatever installs and saves I’ve chosen. Thanks guys.
I also do a podcast. Occasionally. Ninety-odd minutes of me and a guest or two. Sometimes they’re interviews, sometimes they’re reviews, sometimes they’re round-table discussions. Maybe I’ll do a Q and A, if you fancy sending me some Qs…
If you like what you see, why not chuck a few bob in the old tin cup on Patreon, where there are sometimes limited-run rewards to be had?
About The Author
Sententious, mercurial, British as a bilious lord; goth as fuck; vaguely autistic, confirmed manic-depressive, semi-crippled shut-in; likes undead, demons and abominations against all that is good and pure. Natural DM. Self-insertion fantasy persona is a True Neutral Necromancer, Half-Orc if possible.
When not playing undead, I work as a freelance writer, independent researcher and (sigh) content marketer. Most of my work is ghost writing for others, but the stuff I get to talk about is here.
Some of the things I like about this blog are that Von writes when he feels like it, so there’s no sense of urgency or posting for the sake of posting that you sometimes get with some other blogs. Every post has been written because the writer actually wanted to write about it. Another thing I like is the unashamedly intellectual writing style, and the complete disregard for journalistic length limits. Von doesn’t care if you have a short attention span or can’t digest big words. He just writes what he writes, conventional blog wisdom be damned. And I’m very glad for it.
