A Letter From the Editor
Here we are, just a few weeks into the new year, and Arcade Sushi is going through some major changes. I can honestly say, I didn’t think there’d be a day when I’d have to write an open letter introducing myself as the new editor of Arcade Sushi. Well, at least not so soon. I’m Luke Brown. Pleased to meet you.
I’ve actually been here at Sushi for quite some time, working hard bringing you news and console reviews for the past year or so. At a time just when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were about to be introduced, the good people at Townsquare (our parent company) saw fit to bring me on full-time to cover the latest and greatest games coming from the biggest publishers and most recognized developers. We’d already been working hard on covering iOS as much as possible (which we’ll still continue to do), but the next-gen consoles provided Sushi with the right moment to expand its horizons.
Before I came here to help bring more attention to consoles, I’d been freelancing for Official Xbox Magazine and GamesRadar. I got my start some time ago at another site eager to break into the fold. There I had my hand in just about everything, including crafting original video series and shorts. You might remember a few of them making the rounds a few years ago, like ‘God of War (Indie Movie)‘ and ‘Inglourious Plummers.’ The good news is, we’re currently working on expanding our video platform here at Sushi, too. Just about everything we’re doing here is right in my wheelhouse, and I feel incredibly blessed to be asked to guide the site forward in the coming months and year.
Now we’ll also continue to reach out into new avenues beyond consoles, trailers and screenshots. I’m a huge action figure junkie, and you might have noticed some figure reviews popping up from time to time. Those will continue, and we’ll be on the front lines at this year’s Toy Fair bringing you looks at all the upcoming video game toy goodness to come. We’ll also be attending more major events like PAX and E3, and we’ll have new great original content as we grow our catalog of lengthier features. There’s so much we want to do on Sushi, we’re not even sure we’ll be able to get to it all this year, but we’re sure every last thing we do is going to be worth your time.
Now, we might never get a chance to meet face to face, but my (virtual) door will always be open. If you have any feedback for the site, or you have some interesting ideas you think would be a good fit for Arcade Sushi, you can drop me a line through email or find me on Twitter.
Of all the things that could have happened to start 2014, I never expected finding myself in charge of a website to be one them. It’s an exciting opportunity, and I hope you’ll stick around as we here at Arcade Sushi grow and try to bring you the kinds of news, reviews and editorials you want to see. I think you’ll like what we have in store because I like what we have in store. It’s going to be a great year, and we’re only just getting started.
