Freelance journalist and part-time gamer. I specialize in indie games as I think they don't get the attention they deserve. I'm just your typical consumer who has some opinions to share. I've been reviewing games since I was 12. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist. Then I went to online VoDs, which I've lost interest in. And now I'm here to deliver my thoughts in written format!
