Blog Update: We (Finally) Started A Video Game Podcast!

It's finally happened - after much deliberation and delay, some friends and I decided to begin a video game podcast! We have named it Friendly Fire; a name which has origins in the occasional friction of our supposedly-co-operative online multiplayer games together, for example on Zombie Army 4: Dead War and Nine Parchments!

The Long Way Round: #LoveYourBacklog Month 2021

It feels as though the backlog is a unavoidable part of being a gamer - however well-intentioned, sometimes buying a game doesn't end with ticking it off your personal to-play list. Even if you are enjoying the game, sometimes stuff just gets in the way, whether it be other games, different media, or other responsibilities … Continue reading The Long Way Round: #LoveYourBacklog Month 2021
