I love games; horrors and puzzle/strategy are my favourite genres but I enjoy playing pretty much anything. I still believe a good story is important and shouldn't play second fiddle to the multiplayer experience unless via a co-op campaign. I also enjoy watching football, supporting the mighty Liverpool, as well as drinking tea and petting my kittens.

So today’s my 2 year anniversary with the other half, and how am I celebrating? Leaving her at home to do uni work whilst I swan off to Anfield for some Champion’s League action. Who says romance is dead. Anyway, you’re not here to hear about my love life, let’s get on to the midweek gaming news roundup…
