I recently attended Nan Desu Kan 2012 and helped host a panel about video game journalism. More specifically the panel was about how to get into the business of video game journalism.
While there are many perils discussed in the video the perks are also discussed. If you missed the panel (it was standing room only) then check out the video. If you are wanting to start your own website or even wanting to write for someone like Following the Nerd then be sure to watch this video.
The panel went very well with many questions being asked and we filled our time slot. I am not the best video editor around so there are bound to be some issues. Big thank you to Mr Psycho Productions for filming during the panel.
