Once he’s done with his journalistic work for the day – be it a stream of endless complaints of Hearthstone’s design or a wider look at the economics and media landscape of esports–, he tends to mess around with his unfinished manuscript and daydream about an official sequel to FreeSpace 2. Luci’s work is featured on PC Gamer, Tempo/Storm, Rivalry.gg and many other gaming publications.
