Griff's Games of the Week. #2

Hello! Welcome to the second episode of my games of the week podcast! Too much enthusiasm, that ends now. It's about twice as long as last week's episode, due to a 5 minute ramble at the end that my best friend requested/demanded. Lots o...

I could stay here all day

This morning, I got the shower to just the right temperature, (something that's been bugging me since I got to Spain, but hey) and I thought "I could stay here all day". I know we all feel like that sometimes, mainly in bed, especially w...

 
 
 
 

My expertise: Listening

Alright, so here's the thing. If you asked my parents or my girlfriend or any foreigner I've ever talked to, they would say that I'm terrible at listening. I can listen to people's problems and be there if someone needs me to listen, but ...

 
 
 
 

Thoughts on review hate

First of all, why do people get so angry over reviews? I know that careers can be over in extreme conditions when a game gets poor reviews or poor sales; what I don't get is why people have extreme reactions to one review, particularly tho...

 
 

About Mark Griffithsone of us since 10:25 AM on 11.20.2009

Well, I'm Mark, I prefer to be called Griff but there we go. I'm a Languages student from the UK, I love videogames. I play PC games, console and portable ones. I first got into gaming at a young age, only got the Playstation in 2000, but before that I played lots of games on the Mac. I played a hell of a lot of demos, I used to play them over and over. I love all sorts of games, apart from sports and strategy really. Had a long run of FPS games during GCSEs and Sixth Form when I should've been studying. I love point and click games, particularly Lucasarts classics, but also Telltale's more recent titles. Recently, I've really got into games with a unique concept (for example Echochrome, Crush, Mirror's Edge, and others) and even if they have flaws, the concept alone is often enough to draw me in. I'm a completist as well, I tend to play to win, or finish and get overly competitive. I would love to do voice acting as a future career but I really don't see it happening.
