GI Show 101: How To Be A Game Journalist

by Matt Helgeson on Feb 23, 2012 at 01:00 PM

Veteran game editor Dan Amrich has written a book that tells you how to break into game journalism. We interviewed Amrich about his new book, Critical Path: How to Review Videogames for a Living and also break down Asura's Wrath and Syndicate.

Reviewer Jeff Cork and Reiner stop by to talk about the gonzo action in Asura's Wrath in the first segment. Our interview with Dan Amrich is next, with host Matt Helgeson and Phil Kollar inquiring about his new tome and how it might help aspiring game writers break into the business. In the final segment, Bryan Vore and Kyle Hilliard drop in to discuss the surprising Syndicate, which features some unique sci-fi shooter action and great co-op.

If you're interested in purchasing Critical Path: How to Review Videogames for a Living, head over to the book's official site. The book is available in paperback, iBook, Kindle, and Nook formats. Amrich is currently employed as Activision's social media manager, you can read his work at
