Resident Evil: Bring Back the Puzzles
Put a red gem into a stuffed tiger's eye to get a pistol. Set fire to a painting to find a jewel. Stick a coin in a fountain to retrieve a key. These are the solutions to puzzles in Resident Evils 1 and 2. Lateral, weird, amusing, they're examples of twiste...

Let me tell you about freelancing
I've seen a lot of posts from editors over the last week lamenting the state of game criticism, or positing ways that it needs to change. A lot of what they say is noble, well-meaning, but they always miss something out: for any of this to happen, people ne...

Don't vote UKIP - An email to my dad
I feel like I wasn't able to properly articulate myself on the phone the other night. So, I've spent a few days doing some research and fact-collecting and I think you should take the time to read these things over before going to the polls. First, you aske...

In an anxious state
No escape from this wretched state. No escape, it seems. The goddamn anxiety. It starts as you might expect. Shortness of breath in crowded shopping centres. Inability to speak in front of large groups of people. And then it progresses. It peels back furthe...

Miasma. Bad air. You can't see it, but you can feel it entering your body each time you step outside. Being a teenager in the early years of the 21st century was a very special thing to experience, secondary school and university even more so. Now, as an ad...

"Look, in this day and age, you've got to be tooled up." There is, absolutely, no excuse for ignorance. You can't turn on, tune in, drop out - you have the resources and it's your prerogative to use them. Between now and the end of civilization, we, us huma...

Kill-stealing
It occurred to me while playing an online shooter that videogames have birthed the most reprehensible notion in the history of mainstream entertainment: kill-stealing. How in God and Jesus did we allow this to happen? No matter how frightening, bloody or we...

There are no controversial videogames
I criticised Grand Theft Auto V for being toothless and safe, for not feeling punkish in the way the old games did. In part, that's because, unlike in the 90s, when it was a plucky British start-up, Rockstar is now a global conglomerate, helmed by multi-mil...
