An ‘about’ page? Who writes or even reads these any more? Me and you. It’s Tango and Cash, baby; a match made in heaven (or hell).
What do you want to know about me? What I’ll tell you. I’m ‘a bloke’, clearly, and play and write about games. I’ve been writing since I could hold a pen, and professionally for almost a couple of decades now.
Yes, that old.
Based on my experience (that basically means showing up, not that I’m an authority), I kick it old school and prefer to write than stream or make videos. For me, I’d rather play games than watch others, unless we’re in the same room taking turns.
What’s the point of this site? I write/have written for a variety of outlets and publications for various bits n’ pieces, but writing about games is a passion project. I’m not a particularly good gamer, but I draw on my experience from a wealth of platforms and titles.
I don’t take sides in console wars as aim to collect ’em all. While I’d like an Xbox X, I don’t have the time, so I stick with the PlayStation mostly and will be getting the PS5. Ahem – Digital Edition.
My all-time favourite machine was the Amiga 500, and the console would have to be the Sega Dreamcast. Point and click adventures are my favourites, but I’m a fan of driving, fighting and football games too. I tend to avoid strategy titles as I can’t control myself and get too absorbed.
If you’re still reading this and haven’t skimmed through, firstly thanks (I haven’t taken hardly any time to write this, so no love lost if you haven’t read it – you won’t be reading this bit) and secondly, a quick disclaimer.
When I started Vulgar Knight, it was just to focus on Nintendo eShop games, but that has since morphed to PS4, PSVR and
now I cover PC titles on my spin-off Steamin’ Windows cover PC titles here (it’s easier to stay on one site, so left the other to fester at the time up updating this 1:05am).
I didn’t want to give review scores as it’s all relative etc. and purely opinion. However, people are used to scores and Google finds you if you rate something, so reluctantly, I score games here, though wish I didn’t.
You might agree or disagree, but it’s just my opinion – hoping that my thoughts and comments will assist a little in whether you buy or try a new game. Review codes are often provided, and despite my requests for a bribe, it always falls flat, so the only other way is to be honest. If a game gets a 10, it’s because I like it and not because I was provided with hookers.
That’s all I have to say for now – hope you like the site, and please do follow me on Twitter, or any of the other social things that you kids do.
