  • Now That Was Scary!

    In a recent blog I mentioned the fact that I don’t particularly enjoy playing ‘scary’ games and would rather poke my eye with a spork. Recently I ventured in to the world of Dead Space as I said I would (eventually) in order to conquer my greatest fears… being trapped in a small space whilst…

  • My 2011 Gaming List – So Far

    Last year was a great year for games and I have to admit I had a lot of fun in 2010 with all the amazing and jaw-dropping releases that many of the developers had on offer. Heavy Rain was the first title I bought and since the first day of play I have been itching…
