So glad to hear it's stepped up from your initial impressions. Big fan of the Wolfenstein series despite its bumpy history.

If I remember rightly, "Gotta Drive 'Em All" was glitched in Race Driver: GRID when the Ferrari license expired and the cars removed, meaning you could no longer drive drive all 45 vehicles.

Had to grab a snapback. This seemed appropriate. #BritAbroad #LA #Zelda

Wow, climbing after a week off was tough but rewarding. Another V4 nailed. New green routes at The Arch are the bomb!

Props to Subaru for this sick video of a WRX STI (RC) vs StickBomb. That must have been a bastard to shoot.

I was going to call you a big pussy, but I genuinely jumped out of my skin at the 7:00 mark.

Personally I preferred the guitar scene: Bioshock Infinite - Booker Plays the Guitar

Rock climbing king - specialising in community, social media, and project management in video games
Introduction
Formerly Head of Community for the online games distributor Green Man Gaming, supporting their retail channels, publishing label, and their community platform, Playfire.

Fun Fact: Before enlisting in the games industry I had the luxurious job of being a laboratory technician where I dissected rats and blew up labs.

I can usually be found climbing upside-down, à la Spider-Pig, at one of London's numerous bouldering centres.
Bragging rights
