About the author...
I love gaming. I've loved it ever since I unwrapped the Commodore Vic 20 and plugged in the giant cartridge to play Radar Rat Race one Christmas in my dim and distant past. As I grew up I kept up with the gaming technologies of the time, the Commodore 64, the Amiga 600 & 1200, then onto PC gaming starting with a lowly 386SX 25 (the SX were the ones without the maths co-processor, poor things). Time marched on and I got older, not really much wiser but no matter where I went or what happened to me, gaming has remained a faithful companion throughout my life. Even now I race home from work as quickly as possible to power up the console or computer, put on my gaming cape (every has one, right?) and send myself to any number of places, be it slicing locust in twain on Sera or guiding Shepard to ensure survival of life across the whole universe.

There are too many games to list and I always forget something amazing, but a few of my classic favourites have been Elite, Wing Commander, Baldur's Gate, Populous 2, Syndicate and Rome: Total War. Being all too wary of approaching that age when technology begins to confuse rather than amaze I continue to squeeze every gaming second that I can out of my life before they introduce some new-fangled controllerless technology that has us oldies clinging desperately to the controllers of a bygone era...oh wait.

When not playing games I like to talk about them. A lot. Hopefully you'll enjoy reading what I have to say and if not then try reading it wearing a cape, trust me!
