About

What?

Merkurius is a website all about video games, big and small, good and bad, fat and thin. On here you’ll find your straight-forward 5/5-style reviews alongside articles, interviews and other texts that dig into the games themselves and the culture that surrounds them. You’ve seen a video game blog before and this is one of those.

Who?

My name is Rikard Olsson. You might have seen my name in a copy of PC Gamer, the oldest and best Swedish magazine about pc gaming, or in FeTT Magazine or on FZ.se. I have written about video games since 2002, with my texts appearing in now-defunct sites like Nordic Gamers, Spel2, Audioscribbler and the very-much still going Critical Gamer. I’ve also worked as a tester for the first two games in the Kinect Sports series.

Why?

Because that’s what I love to do. I write a lot and not all of it ends up being published elsewhere, so Merkurius is where you will find the rest.
