ED’S LET­TER

Hyper - - CONTENTS - Daniel Wilks, Killer for Slen­der­man

So you may have no­ticed that the cover isn't, as promised last is­sue, Border­lands the Pre-Se­quel. Funny story and a per­fect ad­den­dum to last month's screed on priv­i­lege. I ended up last is­sue's ed­i­to­rial say­ing I was off to LA to play Border­lands. That much was true when I took off. When I landed, how­ever, I dis­cov­ered that due to a last minute build push to get ready for E3, Border­lands would not ac­tu­ally be shown. This is the re­al­ity of trav­el­ling for work and games writ­ing. Last minute lineup changes fre­quently hap­pen. Dead­lines shift, re­lease dates are pushed and un­forseen de­lays get in the way. It's an on­go­ing but un­avoid­able frus­tra­tion. The cost of do­ing busi­ness. So now I'm off to Can­berra to play it. Fin­gers crossed that there are no more slips so my next is­sue page doesn't lie a sec­ond time.

On an un­re­lated note, how about all the bull­shit go­ing around about the sup­posed "cult" of Slen­der­man. Now at least I know what I can say when I fi­nally crack and get crazy and naked with a ri­fle in a clock tower. A fic­tional char­ac­ter cre­ated by Some­thing Aw­ful made me do it.

En­joy the is­sue.
