Kevin is old, 30 years old to be exact. With old age comes an appreciation for the finer things in life. By finer he means faster, better, more efficient, he means a PC. Where once there used to be Sega Mega Drives, Playstations and N64s, now there is only the PC. But that's quite alright, cause he always hated that he could never order a Pizza Hut on his SNES. is a part time worker full time gamer who loves indie and retro games as much as AAA titles and MMO's. When not playing on his Xbox or PC he often makes way for his N64, SNES and Gameboy. Likes to think of his play style/attitude to life as tactical but this often turns out to be gung-ho and spur of the moment.

The Evil Within Gets New Trailer At Tokyo Game Show

Horror games. You either love them, or you hate them. Me, personally I love them. That intense feeling you get that at any moment something… anything could happen, it really makes my arms tingle with adrenaline. Undoubtedly I will jump out my seat at any slight sign of movement, any noise, or even at my own shadow, but that’s what makes horror games fun. The Evil Within looks like a horror game that I would enjoy a lot.

Our Week In Games – Week 92

All this wedding planning has taken me away from the mainstream of gaming news, to the point that I honestly couldn’t tell you anything that happened this week. Instead I’m going to share my own gaming news. I just got tickets for my first ever gaming expo, Game Expo Scotland 2014 and I can’t wait to attend. It’s something of a boyhood dream to go to one of these events, the kind of thing I would normally be confined to simply watch on the TV or read about in magazines. I might be a lot bigger and more mature than when that dream first sprung to mind, but that’s not going to stop me enjoying it. So here’s to people dressed as obscure video game characters, getting your butt kicked at Street Fighter and staring at so many screens it makes your head hurt. I’m sure you’ll hear all about it come October!

Our Week In Games – Week 87

Fresh back from a weeks holiday I feel as if my gaming interests have been reinvigorated. I bought a ton of games in the Steam sale and look forward to playing them all over the next… five years. In fact recently I’ve almost completely abandoned console gaming in place of hours on end of Spelunky and some multiplayer PC games, which just goes to show that the recent crop of game releases really hasn’t grabbed my attention quite as much as I thought it would. Thinking ahead the only two console games I’m remotely interested in are The Witcher 3 and Forza Horizon 2, while I’m spoilt for choice right now on PC. Oh how the times are changing.

Our Week in Games – Week 82

It’s been a sad week of gaming for me all things considered. First of all there’s the news that yet another of Ubisoft’s games have been delayed. The Division, now releasing in 2015, was one of the crowd pleasers of E3 2013 and one of the main reasons people were looking for in the push to upgrade to the new generation of consoles.

Brothers In Arms – An Interview With Fictiorama Studios

If you haven’t heard of Fictiorama Studios yet then I don’t blame you. They are a very discreet and hard working literal band of brothers based in Madrid, who’s debut adventure game Dead Synchronicity has just been successfully funded via Kickstarter. The passion behind this small team is almost immeasurable and I recently had some of their drive directed my way when I was lucky enough to ask them a few questions.

With so many indie developers and so much opportunity these days to fund your project in various ways, it’s important to stick out amongst the crowd, have some individuality and above all provide a pitch that shows quality and professionalism, so for this weeks pick I have been looking for just that. Admittedly I have already been following three of these games through development but the others show just as much promise.
