Unreal Championship 2: The Portrait Conflict

February 22, 2009 | Misc

You see that picture on my Twitter profile? You might recognize it from the cover of the Xbox game Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict.

I never even realized this coincidence until a colleague sent an image of that cover with the following message to everybody at W!Games:

How I got my nickname

February 20, 2009 | Misc

Just to get me going in blogging and expanding my portfolio, I’ll share with you the history of the nickname Patt3rson. People ask me all the time where it comes from, because it’s not your average alias. And as a Dutch guy, it’s not likely it came from my last name.

It all began way before you would ever even need¬†a nickname. MSN wasn’t widely used, consoles weren’t even able to go online yet and there was no reason you would use another name than your own, because people hadn’t discovered yet that they could be total assholes online while using a pseudonym. At that time, I made the first step towards my game related career by founding a simple and small website with previews and reviews, some special articles and the first walkthroughs I ever wrote. I brought some friends on board, who where just as experienced in writing as I was at that time, and our love for playing games got us going.
