i there! The name is Barge, but you can call me Adam. I come from the New Forest, which means I was pretty cut off from civilisation as a child, so the options were go outside or stay in the dark and play video games all day… no points for guessing which one I opted for. My love for games grew from Nintendo classics like Pokemon, Zelda and Mario and grew much deeper when I was a teenager and I fell in love with games like Beyond Good & Evil and Knight of the Old Republic. These days I play all variety of games but I do have a particular love of stealth games.
I tend to look at a game as a whole piece of media, I like to think about how the pieces interlink and how the experience is developed by singular elements of a game building on top of each other. This mise en scène approach to reviewing comes from by background in theatre which also affords me a strong sense of good acting and dramatization in video games.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Review

Honestly, I can’t help but feel like Resident Evil 7 has been falsely marketed. Trailers, posters and the thrice updated demo all make the latest entry in the RE franchise look like its capitali…

Criminal Girls: Invite Only Review

Criminal Girls is a very competent and enjoyable dungeon JRPG, which does just about everything you would expect a Dungeon JRPG to do and does it well. I’d describe it as a very middle of the ro…

Air Race Speed Review

I once walked past a grocery shop called “Good Food” and immediately fell in love with the simplicity of it all. You know that when you walk into that store you’ll be getting food of…
