Our blogs are the inside track on our writers. Here, we can go to town on a particular subject, where there isn't space in a review or guide. We have a chance to expand upon and mull over themes that have arrisen as we've played our games.

I was commissioned to write a song about the issues surrounding mothers and their children playing video-games. Apparently there are quite a lot of issues. Such as mums finding games too violent, over-stimulating, and addictive; and mums wondering whether to let their kids play in their rooms unsupervised or take over the living room with all the noise and technology that goes with gaming. I found it a pretty challenging song to write, and by the end I was overwhelmingly siding with the mums!.. watch now

One of the most noticeable things about racing out Carisma GT14 cars on a wooden floored communal hall is the lack of grip available. Many clubs have either permanent tracks of carpet or rubber matting, or lay their own each session. Our club on the other hand has yet to reach this stage and marks out a new track each time using the bare wooden floor, which although is as smooth as an ice rink is a slippery as one as well... read now

We ran into an unexpected problem when debuting the much-anticipated Animal Crossing on the Wii: who goes first? We'd usually reach for the rules at this point, but realised videogames only really offer instructions - two very different things... read now

After the austerity of the ashram it's time for some luxury. Like the next chapter in some strange videogame we leave in style on a houseboat made out of bamboo. It's gorgeous; little en suite bedrooms; sofas on deck; a round dining table where we're served the most amazing keralan food by our onboard chef. There are six of us now as my sister has joined us. I can't quite describe how excited I am by this - she's travelling around the world, and the next three weeks will be all I see of her this year... read now

Our Carisma GT14 RC club has developed a schism. Some members are purely focused on speed and performance, whilst others are more concerned with looks and appearance. Some have even go two cars, one that they work on for looks and another for speed... read now

Plenty of tea, a kitchen table and all manner of Carisma R/C cars to fix, tweak and setup. It was an evening for our Radio Controlled car club that turned out to be almost as much fun as actually racing... read now

December, South East England, snow falls and with games fading from my mind I'm attempting to get to Heathrow airport, which is a mere two hours from my parent's house. All trains and buses are cancelled. The whole of Gatwick airport is closed... read now

The end of August has come around all too quickly. We had a week away from home but apart from that I've been spending some time in Oakwood most days. However, I've resorted to a much more 'laissez faire' attitude to the game - not time travelling at all, not worrying about the Stalk Market too much, unless I think I'll have time in that particular week. .. read now

It's been a busy few months in our household. I wasn't really intending to stop playing City Folk but after a week's holiday away from home, somehow life got the better of me and I couldn't bring myself to play catchup, setting the clock back to play each day since I last played - so I just didn't play at all... read now

This dad had learned from the mistakes of dads-of-yore and had done some planning. A component cable for HD TV connection had been purchased. New batteries were charged and ready. Everything had been plugged in and verified as working before the Christmas wrapping paper had gone on. When the wrapping was ripped off on the big day, the Wii was up and running within minutes... read now

Updates from Oakwood are getting fewer and further between. I'm still checking in to town every day but just doing the essential jobs in order to keep the game ticking over. There are days when I play a little bit more, for example a Wednesday when Crazy Redd's stock changes, or a Sunday when I buy turnips, but usually I'm just watering flowers and checking turnip prices, as well as throwing an axe into the fountain!.. read now

I just got a new bike. No, not in videogame land, in the real world where all the plants and trees live. A shiny 2011 Ridgeback Element, to be exact. I've spent a good few months looking around, and this is the bike that finally fits all my requirements... read now

It's been a few weeks since the last update from Oakwood but until Easter there hadn't been much more to report. I've been slowly collecting items that were missing from my catalogue, fishing and bug catching when new fish and insects became available, and doing lots of gardening... read now

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
