This past weekend, I had the pleasure of speaking with political journalist Brandon Morse of Rare.us. Along with writing about the political world for a number of outlets, Brandon is the founder of Misfit Politics, and was named among Red Alert Politics’ 30-under-30 for 2013. As a self-proclaimed gamer and someone very familiar with the landscape of political journalism, we at APGNation felt he would be a prime candidate to discuss the current state of gaming journalism and how it compares with the world of politics and political reporting.
While the two worlds may seem far removed from each other, there are many parallels that one can draw; especially in regards to the need [...]
Hello again Nation. This past weekend I had the pleasure of speaking with William Usher, noted journalist and the man behind the recent leak of the GameJournoPros e-mail chain. We appreciate William taking the time to speak with us on his views of #GamerGate and where he feels gaming journalism is headed. There are many views out there on what #GamerGate is really about, why it started, and what it will take to clear the air between readers and the gaming media.
Below, William shares his insights into the gaming media and why he felt it was necessary to leak the GameJournoPros e-mail chain. We explore a number of topics, from what is at the heart of #GamerGate to how the [...]
Some say that #GamerGate is winding to a close, while others are saying quite the opposite. We have come a long way since #GamerGate began and the conversation has evolved in many ways. Earlier today, I had the opportunity to conduct a phone interview with actor Adam Baldwin, who is one of the most publicly visible individuals in support of the #GamerGate movement.
You may know him as the Hero of Canton, or as Agent John Casey from Chuck; but there is much more to Adam Baldwin than the characters we have come to know and love in film and on TV. As you may know, Baldwin has been very active in the #GamerGate discussion online; he is even credited with giving the movement its [...]
We live in a turbulent time as gamers. It is quite possibly the most turbulent time in gaming journalism since small niche gaming magazines surfaced at the birth of the industry. With corruption running rampant and transparency at an all time low, the world of gaming journalism has been flipped on its head. Media outlets are lashing out against the audience that they serve and rely on. It seems counterintuitive, but unfortunately, it is the sad truth we all must bear witness to.
Recently, we got the opportunity to speak with Milo Yiannopoulos and discuss the changing face of video game journalism, and how aspiring video game journalists can set themselves up for success. Milo [...]

Oculus, Songza, Nest; just a few of the many recent major acquisitions in the tech world over the past few months. The latest major acquisition came today when Amazon acquired gaming-centric streaming service Twitch for a reported $970 Million (The Wall Street Journal reports). Since its founding three years ago, Twitch has built an ever-growing community of gamers from across the globe. This, paired with the continuing rise of eSporting events and the popularity of “Let’s Play” type videos, has led Amazon to make a move. Amazon is plunging into the gaming community in new ways, many not directly tied to their mammoth e-commerce sector.
While I’m sure they are [...]
