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.
About Vulgar Knight (me)
I prefer to write than stream or make videos. If you want to know about me, I’d rather play games than watch others, unless we’re in the same room taking turns, but the fundamental premise of this site is opinion from a gamer with the incentive to recommend games based on preference rather than appeasing developers or publishers or developers.
I’m not a particularly good gamer, but I draw on my experience from a wealth of platforms and titles.One of my interests, like everyone else, is cinema and while I studied the subject, my approach here is conversational and not supposed to increase your intelligence.
Like when I analyse a film, I see more positives than negatives. It’s a collective process; no one person is responsible for a title. My comments are perhaps a little more positive than average and I have a bias: my opinion. Obviously if the game is a point and click or has a good story or about a decent character, I’ll prefer that over an online deathmatch title. That’s not to say I’m objective in giving scores.
In a nutshell, these reviews are an idea on what a game is like, and I encourage you to read other review sites and even YouTube playthroughs to get an idea on what to expect. Maybe you get excited about a title based on my write up, but watch some footage from the game and you’ll hate it. It works both ways.
My Favourite Colour Is…
My all-time favourite machine was the Amiga 500 (yes, I was knocking about in that era), 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. That’s since changed in the past couple of months.
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 PC titles here (it’s easier to stay on one website, 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.
