Recently graduating from Staffordshire University with a First-Class Honours in Computer Game Design, I’m a 21 year-old with a passion for game design, writing, and eating cheesecake. I think of myself as being very critical of games and the industry, and I certainly have no issue with speaking my mind and saying things how they are. Essentially, I’m rather cynical – but I try to be funny about it at least. When not spending my time playing video games and writing about them, you’ll find me listening to music, singing loudly, knocking back shots of Sambuca, and dabbling in game development – but fortunately, not all at the same time! P.S. Grim Fandango is my favourite game of all time.

Double Dragon IV Review

If there’s one thing that can be confidently said about the latest entry in the Double Dragon series, it’s that it certainly feels authentic. If you were in any way concerned that the latest release i…

SpiritSphere Review

Though we’re regularly buried underneath an avalanche of video games that deliver on high-end graphics, open-world environments, unprecedented freedoms, deep narratives and complex mechanics, strippin…

Planet Coaster Review

Let’s be honest here – it’s not exactly surprising to see a tonne of bold claims being batted around over the latest video game releases, is it? Far too often do we see new titles branded as “innovati…
