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.

One A Day
January 05, 2010

Those who follow me on Twitter may have seen that I, along with several other games journalists and a few people who don't even do anything to do with games at all, am embarking on a year-long writing project. That is, to write one thing a day that isn't an actual commission or assignment.

Others taking part include Playstation Mag's Andy Kelly, who masterminded the whole thing, PC Gamer UK's Jaz McDougall and Rich McCormick, Reso's own Dan Lipscombe and Jen Allen, BritishGaming's Mark Brown and a whole heap more.

My stuff's all happening over at Have a read, if you want. And go to Andy's blog for a full list of participants.

My Top 50 Games of the Ever
December 31, 2009

Once a year, I lose myself in the banality of lists. These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things 2009 is still to follow, perhaps during a hungover tomorrow or something, but for now you get to see me working out where I stand on games at this very moment in time.

BREVITY OR BUST: Stalin vs. Martians
November 08, 2009

It's called Stalin vs. Martians.

That's the review in a nutshell. The name tells you all you need to know about this utterly barmy and impossibly stupid strategy game, from which the "strategy" bit seems to have been left out. You select legions of Soviet troops, then click like great heck on the endless stream of alien foes until they die in a big explosion of ridiculousness. There is no strategy. There is just charging and hoping.

It should be rubbish. It is rubbish. It looks awful, there's absolutely no variety and the gameplay is as mundane as it gets. Its sense of humour is childish, the AI bugged and broken.

Zeno Clash is all about fists and fantasy. It's characterised by the joy of discovery, those splendid moments where the game world escapes from its constrained format and spills out into glorious, open dreamscapes, filled with exotic beasts and dripping with alien culture. It's also characterised by punching a giant bird in its beaky face.

Hey. Would you like to win a game?
August 22, 2009

We've a competition on over at Resolution to win one of two copies of Super Laser Racer, a delightful little indie PC game that should run on most computers.

Fancy it? You'll have to answer a very easy question, and tell us a few things about Wot You Think about Reso, and then you're into the draw.



Oh my, I've not been keeping up with this
July 25, 2009

How long is it since I last blogged here? Man. Stuff's mainly been going on down at my website ( but I do hope to keep up with stuff here as well.

Judging the TT has been mad-work, but I do have a couple of reviews I'm working on myself, which will hopefully be on the site early next week. I'd have liked them to be done already, but stuff's been crazy-busy.
