Welcome, gamers, to the new She’s Lost Control Gaming!
First, I want to apologize for neglecting this section of the site for the better part of a year. During that time, however, I did a good bit of soul-searching, gaming-wise, and realized that the most fun I have gaming and writing about games is when I’m in my element, playing and writing about games in genres I know well and greatly enjoy.
Let’s face it: In the grand scheme of things, nothing will be lost by me not reviewing the next Halo or Call of Duty. There are many people in the gaming community who are much quicker, better-supported, and more talented at that than I. That being said, in today’s gaming world, a lot of great games go unnoticed between the attention given to the AAA market and Indie market, and I want to focus on those games. The games that are great, but perhaps a bit niche for most. The games that don’t quite penetrate the mainstream or make the news. The games that I want to share and get more people playing.
I want to focus on:
- Franchises like Armored Core, X, MechWarrior, Ace Combat, and Virtual-On.
- Games based on properties such as Mobile Suit Gundam and SDF Macross.
- Freeware and open-source games.
- Japanese games.
- Flightsticks and peripherals.
- Flight, space, and mech sims.
Now, that’s not to say that I’ll never cover stuff like CoD or Halo. I’m still a big fan of a lot of AAA games, and will cover them from time to time, but they won’t be the focus.
I’m hoping people will enjoy this new, narrower direction. I look forward to writing hard and playing harder on the new She’s Lost Control Gaming.
