Final Fantasy 7

Ever since the PS4 reveal trailer at E3 showing some footage of the remake, I have been excited about this project in a way that I haven’t been since I first saw the alpha footage of Elite: Dangerous – another blast from the past that now dominates my gaming life. Well, following on from that […]

Elite: Dangerous – some suggestions

I love Elite: Dangerous. It’s a fantastic game in its own right and a massive nostalgia trip for me, having grown up playing the original Elite on the BBC and Frontier: Elite 2 on the Amiga.
