Staff Bio

This is the bit where I get to bore everyone about my exciting life. Don’t you feel privileged? No, really, you should.

My very first adventure game was Secret of Monkey Island and having been captured by its charm and hilarious insult fighting, I went on to purchase and play adventure games of all formats ever since. Particularly obscure ones that no-one has ever heard of for my PC. When not adventuring, I’ll play anything decent (bar horror games anyway) and owns numerous handheld consoles, the latest being the Nintendo DS. As well as a Nintendo GameCube, Sega Dreamcast and Sony PlayStation 2 but that’s another story.

During the day, I freelance for various gaming publications in the UK and my work has appeared in OPSM, PSM2, Retro Gamer, GamesTM, Micro Mart and a few others that no longer exist. Plans to actually write novels or something credible are still under way.


You can wake up now.

Another Code: R - A Journey into Lost Memories review

The DS cult hit gets a Wii sequel that has many charming moments, but forgot some of what made its predecessor so great.

Flower, Sun and Rain Article

Flower, Sun and Rain review

This surreal time-distortion DS adventure from Suda51 is too repetitive, strange, and repetitive for its own good.

Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy review

The 19th Nancy Drew mystery seems a match made in heaven, but a few frustrations will raise players' ire.

There's plenty of good in this medieval monastic mystery, though the devil is in the details.

A mostly-new cast provides the same Ace Attorney fun, but the transition raises a few objections along the way.

The time for House of Tales' long-awaited adventure is now at hand, and you'd have to be a little cuckoo to ignore it.
