Autistic Gamer, Friendly bloke with a kind heart
Introduction
Diagnosed with Autism in my early 20's I've always found it difficult to find a personal goal in life amongst other things ( the joys of autism ) . But through many years of gaming news posts on different forums, Now in my 30's I felt it time to achieve one such goal, to create my own gaming website. Full of the latest news from retro going way back to the Amstrad,c64,bbc days and to Indie, the latest independent gaming titles. I'll even throw in some Retro Gaming Remixes which i have a personal playlist of!
