Whiskey Reviews Is Returning

As you've no doubt noticed, Whiskey Reviews has been on hiatus for a long, long time now and that was because I got a job working for a site called Pixel Judge writing, managing and editing and I got to do all kinds of cool stuff like liase with developers and publishers and go to a trade show (Eurogamer Expo - EGX) and meet developers and publisher representatives there and it was all pretty awesome.

However, I didn't leave Pixel Judge under the best of circumstances and it left a sour taste in my mouth for reviewing games for a long time. I've been playing games hoping to find one that will spark my desire to talk about it again but even huge releases like DOOM, which blew me away with the quality of its single player campaign, couldn't get me writing again.

That said, I'm determined to get the reviews flowing again so starting this week with the release of No Man's Sky, I'll be posting reviews once more. Naturally a review of No Man's Sky will take more than a day to write so it won't be posted on Saturday like my reviews used to be, in its place will be a review I wrote for Pixel Judge of the worst game I ever played, one that caused me mental anguish and actual depression while playing it. I won't reveal what it is, but don't forget to check back in on Saturday.

The following weekend (the 20th) should be my review of No Man's Sky and that should mark the restarting of Whiskey Reviews posting on a regular basis. Hopefully, if I can get enough money together (donations welcome) then I'll buy a proper domain name that may or may not be Whiskey Reviews, because it sounds like I'm going to review booze and this is an endeavour I'd like to grow to include more people in the future so choosing a better name early on would probably be for the best.

Thank you for reading and your understanding about the stupidly long hiatus.
