    HELLO WARCRAFT, MY OLD FRIEND

    April 2009, a dark time in history for some. Confused days drifting listlessly through college. Every conceivable genre of music had a ‘-core’ version. ‘Indie’ was fast becoming a marketing ploy. There were murmurs of a newly discovered species, be-spectacled and bearded, disguising guilty pleasures as irony and shouting...

    CELEBRATING PLATFORMERS

    Heroes may fall, but legends never die; so it seems with the humble platformer. As a genre, platformers were at one time a much loved staple of the video game industry. All the classic franchises cut their teeth by hopping blocks and bouncing off heads. They pioneered challenging, addictive...

    FIREWATCH – A HIKE THROUGH THE HUMAN CONDITION

    Every so often, we encounter an experience that changes us. It totally utterly engulfs us, threatening to burn away our perceptions and ignite our ideals.
