Back in high school, around freshman year, I had really stared getting into programing. I started out making mods and items for Diablo, one of Blizzards first games. Eventually I moved on to chat bots, then to stupid, probably illegal schemes of stealing accounts for fun and profit, and so on.
During that time I some how made friends with what I guess you would call a hacker group. I use the term loosely, but I’m not sure what else you would call it. We just liked to make cool dumb shit for Blizzard games. Whether it was a god mode back, a stupid crash item, a map back, whatever it was. We had no goals or mission. We just had fun. We also liked to share our findings with the rest of the community. And so, gamehackers.net was born.
And now it will live again. I have some exciting plans moving forward with it, while still preserving it’s place in history. Im not quite ready to announce anything beyond what’s on the current page just yet, but I plan on a soft reveal this fall.
Seismic Games is best known for mobile game Marvel Strike Force, (something I had to do a bit of searching around to learn). Having a group of industry veterans with experience working on IP based games will hopefully provide a strong boost for Niantic’s upcoming Harry Potter game as well as Pokemon Go.
Years ago I started A Life Well Played as a “video game news commentary”, a way to express my thoughts with the current state of video games. I experimented with various forms of writing, as well as layouts and designs.
Since then, I’ve had several ideas I tried to explore, but none felt quite right. I explored the idea of making it a Medium-esque type clone, allowing others to submit their own stories. As I developed the idea, I realized this really wasn’t sustainable, or even a good idea out of the gate.
Instead, I’ve decided to go back to go back to my original idea- a blog to share my thoughts and draw attention to social issues.
