United We Game is cooperative blog built on the ideals of community and strength in numbers. This is a place for game bloggers to network and collaborate with their peers, find inspiration for their own writing, and to help their efforts to build awareness for themselves as a blogger and gain attention for their own blog.
This blog was born of a collaborative effort between wordpress.com bloggers Cary, The Duck Of Indeed, and Hatm0nster, whom after discovering the enjoyment to be had in working together, developed United We Game to extend the fun (and the benefits) of cooperation to other games bloggers.
This is a site meant to benefit all who participate, but for more details you’ll have to look at our FAQs page. (Or just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
About the Admins
Before United We Game, Hatm0nster was blogging for 1.5 years over at their blog My Two Caps (which is now no more). He’s been gaming since the days of the SNES and enjoys talking about games as much he does playing them. He currently tolerates his day to day work since it enables him to continue gaming (as well as remaining fed and sheltered), but is working towards a career somewhere in the games journalism sector. He enjoys writing about our common gaming experiences and all the wonderful things about gaming that keep us playing
His time for gaming is limited now, but that makes it all the more special right?
Hatmonster’s Most Anticipated Games for 2016:
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Yooka-Laylee, and Dishonored 2!
Cary is a relative newcomer to the world of disseminating thoughts in electronic form. She’s been running her own blog, Recollections of Play, since late 2011 and has contributed articles to At the Buzzer and DISK READ ERROR. She’s an avid gamer who is more than thrilled to now be associated with United We Game. By day, she maintains herself with the utmost composure at a regular job. By night, she madly plays the latest and greatest of video games! Er…well, maybe not the “greatest,” and…uh, hardly the “latest.” And…yeah, gaming really only happens when time permits [sigh]. But still! When she isn’t gaming, she’s probably writing about games, or watching something about games, or perhaps just thinking about games. With her UWG cohorts, she’ll be supplying various articles on gaming. From recalling of past events to ranting about current issues, nothing, when it comes to video games, is off limits.
The Duck of Indeed
The Duck of Indeed has been playing video games for over a decade now and writing about them for a couple years. Even before that, she used to watch her parents play, so video games have pretty much always been a part of her life in some shape or form. The Duck just loves video games, and her favorite series include “Zelda”, “Metroid”, “Ratchet and Clank”, “Jak and Daxter”, “Kingdom Hearts”, and “Final Fantasy”.
When the Duck is not gaming, she is writing, doing a bad job playing the piano, or working on another blog called The Duck of Indeed.
About Our Fellow Contributors
(to be added as contributors are added)
Derek has been a gaming enthusiast since he was little when his parents brought home a NES system. Little did they know the world they had unlocked for him. Growing up mainly on Nintendo systems, Derek has since broadened his gaming selections to basically whatever he can get his hands on. You can find him now a days acting as Editor-In-Chief over at http://www.GamerCrash.com, created back in July 2010, where he provides his opinion on just about everything including some insight on the latest news, game reviews, and everything else in between. So stay a while and have a look around! Glad you’re here.

simpleek’s gaming history doesn’t stretch as far back as most of her fellow bloggers on UWG. Sure, she maybe played a game or two of the classics like Mario, Mortal Kombat, and Aladdin back when she was just a little girl, but simpleek did not become a full gamer until 2009 and hasn’t looked back since.
The type of video games that attract simpleek the most are anything with good characters, well-written stories, and are just plain fun. Navigating the big and wide world of video games has been overwhelming, but luckily she has friends both in real life and online who are kind enough to guide her through it. Most of the games simpleek plays now are based mainly on recommendations. She trusts the taste of the gaming experts she knows.
Outside of writing for UWG, simpleek runs her own blog where she talks video games, anime, manga, and fashion. You are bound to find something you want to read on her blog. simpleek is also a member of the newly formed Geek Force Network along with other familiar geeks. Read new posts on her own blog on Monday evenings and new posts at GFN on Tuesday evenings.
