I started gaming back in the Megadrive/Genesis era. The first real video game I ever played was Sonic and Knuckles. I used to spend hours trying to beat that game, and the lack of a save feature meant I had to constantly cover the console with a towel as a primitive means of not losing data; this was purely out of fear of my Mum switching off the console during the time I was at school. It wasn't until the N64 that I became a "hardcore" gamer. To this day it's still my all time favourite console.
I've always been a multi-platform gamer. I don't see the point in limiting myself to one console; I want to play all of the exclusives, son.
I have a wonderful, and ridiculously beautiful girlfriend (seriously, she's ridiculously beautiful). I'm not sure how I managed to get her to agree to being my girlfriend, especially considering my first encounter with her involved spilling a drink down her dress... Alas, five years later and we're still very happy. She's the best thing that ever happened to me.
I have a degree in English, and dream of one day becoming a video game journalist. It's a hard industry to break into, but I'm still young and very determined.
I'm currently playing these games:
- Assassin's Creed Revelations.
- Heavy Rain.
- Batman: Arkham City
