Having been at the helm of OnlySP for two months, I believe an update is long overdue. We have several projects coming up for the site—some of which you may have already seen—so I would like to take this opportunity to share some announcements.
In the past week, you may have noticed several articles as part of Spider-Man Week, celebrating the release of Insomniac Games’s Spider-Man. Among these articles was a series looking at the history of Spider-Man video games—from the 1980s, to the 3D and HD eras—followed by an interview with Beenox creative director Thomas Wilson, and ending with today’s review of Insomniac’s new title. Spider-Man Week is the first in a series of ‘themed weeks’ for OnlySP, where our writers will take a look at some of their favourite games (past, present, and future) with reviews, editorials, videos, and more.
I am also thrilled to announce OnlySP’s 50 Favorite Games, a year-long series looking at the top 50 single-player games according to our staff. The series begins on Sunday, as Mike Cripe reflects on one of his favourite games of the last decade, and will continue counting down the games in a random order for the 49 weeks to follow. The series has been in development for several months, led by OnlySP’s Mitch Akhurst, and I am keen to finally share it with our readers.
Finally, I am excited to announce that Ben Newman has recently been promoted to the position of Deputy Editor, having proven himself as a talented writer and team leader throughout the year. I am enthusiastic to work alongside Ben in this leadership position, as I know he is more than capable in helping me lead the team and the site. I would like to thank Damien Lawardorn for his stellar work as Deputy Editor over the last two months (and, of course, as Editor-in-Chief over the years preceding)—your passion and dedication is infectious, and your upcoming vacation is certainly well-deserved.
I hope you enjoy all the content we have planned. I, for one, cannot wait.
Until next time,
