ECA’s GameCulture and GamePolitics add Veteran Editors

April 29, 2010 -

The editorial roster at ECA websites GameCulture and GamePolitics has expanded yet again with the addition of seasoned journalists, James Fudge and Julie Gray, who join Aaron Ruby, Pete Gallagher and John Keefer.

The former news editor for CrispyGamer, James is a respected news hound, with a reputation for fast, fair and efficient reporting. His editorial pedigree includes notable outlets such as Computer Games Online, IDG Games' Games.net, GameSpy, Voodoo Extreme and GameShark. He will be contributing to both GamePolitics and GameCulture.

In contrast, Julie brings a more personal flare flair to the content line up, with a casual and approachable charm. She hails from New Zealand – the land of Peter Jackson and WETA and draws from a largely print background, with experience as a former Editor of Game Console, Game Freaks and Netguide magazines and online with Gameplanet and Buttonmasher.

You’ll find James on PSN and Xbox Live, as he’s more of an FPS fan. Where Julie leans more toward the MMOs and also pulls double-duty as one of our esteemed forum mods.

Welcome aboard, James and Julie!

FYI - James is the one responsible for defacing GP today with an image of Justin Bieber.

"In contrast, Julie brings a more personal flare to the content line up, with a casual and approachable charm."

Pretty sure you mean a more personal flair.  Though bringing a flare to a content lineup would certainly be interesting.

I hope one of them brings an ability to proof-read what Pete Gallagher types.

ZenSo...Phil Fish was apparently hacked on both his Twitter and the Polytron site along with all of his personal information has been given out in a zip file. He has since closed his Twitter and stated that Polytron and the Fez IP are for sale. He wants out.08/22/2014 - 12:01pm

SleakerBut where have all the Ethics gone?08/21/2014 - 9:08am
Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am
SleakerHere's Bukkit's explanation attempt at shutting down due to EULA changes: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/bukkit-its-time-to-say.305106/08/21/2014 - 8:55am
SleakerEZK - it's the largest server mod for MC, in actuality without it minecraft for sure would not have been as popular (#1 game now).08/21/2014 - 8:54am
SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am
E. Zachary KnightWhat is Bukkit and why should I care?08/21/2014 - 8:53am
SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
