Dean Bowman
Dean Bowman is Features Editor at Ready Up. He has a background in Literature and Film studies, but has finally embraced his inner geek and decided to focus on videogames. He is very interested in the storytelling potential of videogames and is about to embark on a PhD on the subject. A true Otaku, he has a love for all things offbeat and specifically Asian and can often be heard waxing lyrical about obscure 1950s samurai movies like Sword of Doom or Harakiri. He loves point-and-click adventures and has a little bit too much of a soft spot for Japanese RPGs. His favourite game ever is Vagrant Story with Ico and Okami not far behind.
