This year I attended Eurogamer on the Saturday and this post is coming to you via tiredness, a possible hangover and agonisingly sore feet. I was there for mostly social reasons but here is a rundown of my time spent at Earls Court.

Gaming For SpecialEffect 2011 is GO!

A Just Giving page has been set up this week for donations to my game-a-thon for SpecialEffect over the weekend of the 22nd October on my Xbox and PC.

I’m usually incapable of a smooth, skilled headshot instead preferring a lengthy obliteration involving numerous shots to elbows or the groin. Fire gets me cackling with glee, be it igniting a crowd with my Molotov or the bursts of a flame thrower. Then after a long, hard day harassing villagers in Wiltshire I’ll settle down for the night with my Xbox.
