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.

Call Of Duty: WWII Review

Now reaching the fourteenth major instalment in the record-breaking franchise, there’s very few places that the Call Of Duty franchise hasn’t tried to explore over the years. Seemingly keen to leave no stone unturned across its mighty reign of the…

My Experience @EGX 2017 – Jimmy Dean
Achieving its 10th anniversary this year, it’s fair to say that EGX has moved from strength to strength in each and every passing year since its inception. Moving out of its hometown of London and shifting to Birmingham’s National Exhibition…
Robonauts Review

Sonic Mania Review (PS4)

It’s fair to say that, whether you’re a die-hard fan or not, we can all admit that Sonic The Hedgehog hasn’t had the easiest of times over the past decade. With developers that are seemingly keen to reinvent the titular…

Cars 3: Driven To Win Review

Lazy, uninspired, and utterly vapid – movie tie-in’s have hardly earned the brightest of reputations amongst the video gaming world. Often thrown together in a desperate attempt to capitalise on a popular brand, it’s through no fault but their own…

Wartile Preview

Launching back in March as part of Steam’s Early Access programme, Wartile, the latest title from developers Playwood Project, is a strategy-focussed title heavily inspired by popular tabletop board games. Setting all the action within stylish dioramas set upon hex…

Everything Review – “Truly unique but considerably flawed – ‘Everything’ gains a mixed reception.”

It’s not every day you get to play as a Deer, a Car, a lamppost, and a slice of pizza all within the space of five minutes, let alone within the same video game – but then again, not every…

Dying: Reborn – Review

To simply cut to the chase: Dying: Reborn isn’t very good. From its mixture of frankly inane and disinteresting puzzles to its schlocky, B-Movie script and narrative, it often has very little going for it. An “escape room”, first-person puzzler…

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 in this classic franchise might…
