Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

The Witcher 3: The 100-Hour Report
June 14, 2015

My usual code of conduct as a critic is that I don't review a game until I've finished it. It perhaps comes with being a bachelor in his mid-20s who has the kind of free time that allows him to finish games in the first place, but here we are.

One of the developers saw that and replied that he took that as a compliment.

Yes, Grow Home guy. That is about the highest compliment that I can bestow.
