Hello Player 1 members and fans! Welcome to Katy’s Corner! Reviews, previews, editorials, event coverage, videos and more are coming your way from yours truly. A new blog on the Player 1 website where I hope to launch my budding career as a video game industry journalist.
Out in the real world, I'm often called "The Player 1 Girl" as I am the friendly, sometimes strong-willed girl who checks your IDs and gets you into our beloved bar as quickly and efficiently as possible. My work up in the front of Player 1 really is only the tip of the iceberg as to who I am and my plans for the future. Let’s rewind to give you a better understanding of Katy, the girl behind Kitana.
Gaming has been a key component to my life since I was a child. I fought with motor-skill development issues, so my doctor recommended that my parents get me playing video games in an effort to bridge the gap between my brain and my hands. Next Christmas morning I unwrapped my very first console, the Super Nintendo. My imagination leapt at the ability to go on adventures, meet loveable characters and simply escape for a while. It was magic to me, and it genuinely still is to this day.
Since I'm not the most technically proficient, and my love for writing always equaled my love for gaming, I decided to combine the two and study journalism and digital media. Little did I know what kind of an incredible place I would find myself at to get that first shot.
Player 1 Video Game Bar has become our nerd-tacular home away from home. We are not just any bar. And we are not just any arcade. Player 1 is truly an experience all its own and it has been an honor to have been part of the team since we opened our doors this past summer. Katy's Corner is an effort to give Player 1 a voice regarding all the latest industry news, releases and events. Get Ready! Press start!
