The blog was created to give something back. I’ve been a gamer for almost 20 years, and have split that time on either side of the screen, and as such have seen the gaming world from some different perspectives. Part gaming advice, part column, with a healthy dose of things that prove to be useful, I keep writing because I sharing my ideas. We’re all involved in community story telling experiences, so why not bring them to the whole of the community.

The focus of the site is to bring honest reviews and interesting articles as often as possible. In the last year we’ve expanded by creating a network of blogs and sponsoring that network. We’ve been very lucky to have the legendary Ken St. Andre showing an interest and joining the network too! We’ve also pushed the podcast and video unboxings schedule; a lot. We’ve also covered several conventions both in the UK and Germany too (which is very expensive).  Not sure my site is the best out there, but I’m sure going to make the hell of an effort to get as close as I can!

More awesomeness...

Chris Stevens

In Chris's opinion, the very best vices are dirt bikes, rock music, and gaming, while the very best medicine is fatherhood. If he could just learn to balance them all, he'd live forever. He's much more creative than intelligent, often wakes up belligerent, and ponders many things insignificant. Lastly, in an effort to transform his well-fed body, P90X, Roller Blades, and Food are all laughing at him. And the pain continues.
